Description: A VIOLENT SEPARATION

In a quiet Midwestern town, a deputy named Norman Young is faced with an impossible decision; arrest his older brother Ray for murder or help him cover it up. Norman chooses family. As the ensuing investigation withers, neither of the brothers are prepared for the weight of their guilt or how that guilt will strain their loyalty to each other when a passionate romance blossoms between Norman and the victim’s younger sister, Frances. Family bonds are tested as impossible choices must be made to protect the ones they love.

Description: RUSSIAN FIVE

The Detroit Red Wings hockey team was a joke in the late ‘80s. When a pizza magnate bought the failing team, his unorthodox General Manager turned to America’s mortal enemy in the Cold War: the USSR for help. The Red Wings brought over one Russian player after another, sneaking them into the Motor City under darkness of night. The Russian Five is the true story of these men who became American heroes, teammates that became family, and a scrappy, resilient city that became Stanley Cup Champion.

Description: LONG DAYS JOURNEY INTO NIGHT

Long Day’s Journey Into Night is a noir-tinged film about a solitary man (Jue Huang) haunted by loss and regret, told in two parts: the first an achronological mosaic, the second a nocturnal dream. Again centering around his native province of Guizhou in southwest China, the director has created a film like nothing you’ve seen before.

Description: SAUVAGE WILD

SAUVAGE / WILD, Camille Vidal-Naquet’s riveting and vibrant erotic journey of a 22-year-old male prostitute named Leo, features a stunning performance from Félix Maritaud (BPM). Leo trades in love as much as lust, and wanders through his life without rules or restrictions. Through a series of encounters that offer a glimpse into the complicated and visceral world of male sex work, Leo finds himself searching for affection anywhere he can get it — whether it’s the unrequited love for his hustler friend Ahd (Eric Bernard) or in the arms of an older, vulnerable client. Will Leo choose his freedom and the dangers that come with it, or the comforts of a stable relationship? After all, in this unpredictable world, who knows where he’ll end up?

Description: FUNNY STORY

Walter Campbell (Matthew Glave) is an aging heartthrob struggling to keep up appearances–especially with his estranged adult daughter, Nic (Jana Winternitz). In an attempt to reconnect with his family, he invites himself to crash her vacation in Big Sur. Offering a ride to her friend Kim (Emily Bett Rickards), they bond in unexpected ways that are sure to ruin the lives of everyone in their path. From director Michael Gallagher comes a hilarious and heartfelt tragicomedy you never saw coming. Filled with memorable characters and award-winning performances, Funny Story teaches us about the destructive power of narcissism, the healing power of forgiveness, and the dangers of doing karaoke after drinking enough tequila.

Description: SHADOW 

With SHADOW, director Zhang Yimou (HERO, HOUSE OF FLYING DAGGERS) once again pushes the boundaries of wuxia action to create a film like no other, masterfully painting a canvas of inky blacks and greys punctuated with bursts of color from the blood of the defeated. In a kingdom ruled by a young and unpredictable king, the military commander has a secret weapon: a “shadow”, a look-alike who can fool both his enemies and the King himself. Now he must use this weapon in an intricate plan that will lead his people to victory in a war that the King does not want.

Description: THE THIRD WIFE

In the late 19th century in rural Vietnam, fourteen-year-old May is given away in an arranged marriage and becomes the third wife to her older husband, Hung. May learns that she can gain status and security if she gives birth to a male child. This becomes a real possibility when she gets pregnant. However, her path is fraught with danger when May starts to develop an attraction for Xuan, the second wife. As May observes the unfolding tragedy of forbidden love and its devastating consequences, she must make a choice, to either carry on in silence and safety, or forge a way towards personal freedom.
