Now Showing and Upcoming Films
Since the assassination of Dr. George Tiller in Kansas in May 2009, there remain only four American doctors left who openly provide third-trimester abortions. After Tiller paints a complex, compassionate portrait of these physicians who have become the new number-one targets of the anti-abortion movement, yet who continue to risk their lives every day to do work that many believe is murder, but which they believe is profoundly important for their patients' lives. The film weaves together revealing, in-depth interviews with the doctors with intimate vérité scenes from their lives and inside their clinics, where they counsel and care for their anxious, vulnerable patients at an important crossroads in their lives. By sharing the stories of several of these patients, After Tiller illuminates the experiences of women who seek late abortions and the reasons why they do so. Directors Martha Shane and Lana Wilson have created a moving and unique exploration of one of the most incendiary topics of our time, and they've done so in an informative, thought-provoking way. (PG13, 88 mins)

Captain Phillips is a pulse-pounding thriller about the 2009 hijacking of the U.S. container ship Maersk Alabama by a crew of Somali pirates. The film focuses on the relationship between the Alabama's commanding officer, Captain Richard Phillips (Tom Hanks), and his Somali counterpart, Muse (Barkhad Abdi). Set on an incontrovertible collision course off the coast of Somalia, both men will find themselves paying the human toll for economic forces outside of their control. Also starring Catherine Keener, Captain Phillips is directed by Paul Greengrass (The Bourne Ultimatum, United 93) from a screenplay by Billy Ray, based upon the book A Captain's Duty: Somali Pirates, Navy SEALs, and Dangerous Days at Sea by Richard Phillips with Stephan Talty. (PG13, 134 mins)
Matthew McConaughey stars as real-life Texas cowboy Ron Woodroof, whose free-wheeling life was overturned in 1985 when he was diagnosed as HIV-positive and given 30 days to live. These were the early days of the AIDS epidemic, and the U.S. was divided over how to combat the virus. Ron, now shunned and ostracized by many of his old friends, and bereft of government-approved effective medicines, decided to take matters in his own hands, tracking down alternative treatments from all over the world by means both legal and illegal. Bypassing the establishment, the entrepreneurial Woodroof joined forces with an unlikely band of renegades and outcasts—whom he once would have shunned—and established a hugely successful "buyers' club." Their shared struggle for dignity and acceptance is a uniquely American story of the transformative power of resilience. Also starring Jennifer Garner and Jared Leto, Dallas Buyers Club is directed by Jean-Marc Vallée (The Young Victoria). (R, 117 mins)
The FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, were the unlikely breeding ground for a ton of hits in the 1960s and '70s, by big names both black and white: Wilson Pickett, Aretha Franklin, Jimmy Cliff, local singer Percy Sledge ("When a Man Loves a Woman"), Gregg Allman, Lynryd Skynyrd, The Rolling Stones and many more. Some of the most important and resonant songs of all time were recorded there, including "I'll Take You There," "Brown Sugar," "Mustang Sally," "Tell Mama," "Kodachrome" and "Freebird." FAME founder Rick Hall, who achieved much in his driven life, overcoming staggering tragedies, is responsible for creating the "Muscle Shoals sound." He brought black and white together in Alabama's cauldron of racial hostility to create music for the generations. Crammed with generous musical clips and fascinating anecdotes, Muscle Shoals is a crowd-pleasing feast of music. Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, Bono, Clarence Carter, Etta James, Alicia Keys, Paul Simon, Steve Winwood and others bear witness to Muscle Shoals' magnetism and mystery, and why it remains influential today. (PG, 111 mins)
Already of several critics' and awards' lists as one of the best films of year, 12 Years a Slave is based on an incredible true story of one man's fight for survival and freedom. In the pre-Civil War United States, Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor, Dirty Pretty Things), a free black man from upstate New York, is abducted and sold into slavery. Facing cruelty (personified by a malevolent slave owner, portrayed by Michael Fassbender), as well as unexpected kindnesses, Solomon struggles not only to stay alive, but to retain his dignity. In the twelfth year of his unforgettable odyssey, Solomon's chance meeting with a Canadian abolitionist (Brad Pitt) will forever alter his life. Also starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Dano and Paul Giamatti, 12 Years a Slave is directed by Steve McQueen (Shame). (R, 134 mins)
A true story of friendship, love and murder, Kill Your Darlings recounts the pivotal year that changed Allen Ginsberg's (Daniel Radcliffe) life forever, bringing him together with William S. Burroughs (Ben Foster) and Jack Kerouac (Jack Huston) at Columbia University in 1944, providing the spark that would lead to their Beat Revolution. At Columbia, Ginsberg finds stuffy tradition clashing with daringly modern ideas and attitudes—embodied by Lucien Carr (Dane DeHaan), whom he first encounters shouting a scandalous passage from Henry Miller atop a library study table, and David Kammer (Michael C. Hall), an older hanger-on who clearly resents Allen's position as Lucien's new sidekick. (R, 100 mins)

"Truly Indie Tuesdays" – The most provocative film at this year’s Sundance Film Festival tells the tale of a middle-aged husband and father of two who learns that he has lost his job. Keeping the news from his nagging wife and wound-up children, he packs up the family and embarks on a full day of park hopping amid enchanted castles and fairy tale princesses. Soon, the manufactured mirth of the fantasy land around him begins to haunt him and his idyllic family vacation quickly unravels into a surrealist nightmare of paranoid visions, bizarre encounters, and an obsessive pursuit of a pair of sexy teenage Parisians. Like nothing you've ever seen, Randy Moore’s directorial debut is a bold and ingenious trip into the happiest place on earth. (90 mins)
