You Should Have Left – Available Now
Starring Kevin Bacon, Amanda Seyfried, and Avery Essex
Theo Conroy is a successful middle-aged man whose marriage to his much younger actress wife, Susanna is shredding at the seams, frayed by her secretiveness, his jealousy, and the shadow of his past. In an effort to repair their relationship, Theo and Susanna book a vacation at a stunning, remote modern home in the Welsh countryside for themselves and their six-year-old daughter, Ella. What at first seems like a perfect retreat distorts into a perfect nightmare when Theo’s grasp on reality begins to unravel and he suspects that a sinister force within the house knows more than he or Susanna have revealed, even to each other.
Beats – Available June 26th
Starring Christian Ortega, Lorn Macdonald, and Laura Fraser
A universal story of friendship, rebellion, and the irresistible power of music set against the backdrop of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act of 1994, which banned unlicensed raves across the UK, BEATS follows best friends and polar opposites Johnno and Spanner who, realizing they are destined for different futures, sneak out to an illegal party in pursuit of one last crazy night together.
What She Said: The Art of Pauline Kael – Available Now
Directed by Rob Garver
The New Yorker film critic Pauline Kael battled to make her mark — fueled by brilliance, unshakable self-confidence, a complicated past, and a deep love of the arts. With over 35 new interviews and never-before seen archival material, What She Said is an unvarnished portrait of a pioneer who was both admired and resented for what she said about art in an era of great movie-making.
The Dead and The Others – Available Now
Directed by João Salaviza and Renée Nader Messora
There are no spirits or snakes tonight and the forest around the village is quiet. Fifteen year old Ihjc has nightmares since he has lost his father. He is an indigenous Krah from the north of Brazil. Ihjc walks into darkness, his sweaty body moves with fright. A distant chant comes through the palm trees. His father’s voice calls him to the waterfall: its time to organize the funerary feast so the spirit can depart to the deads village. The mourning must cease. Denying his duty and in order to escape a crucial process of becoming a shaman, Ihjc runs away to the city. Far from his people and culture, he faces the reality of being an indigenous in contemporary Brazil.
