The Love Punch
 The Love Punch
When their retirement nest egg is wiped out, Richard (Pierce Brosnan) and Kate (Emma Thompson), a divorced couple whose banter suggests that the flames of their former relationship have not been fully extinguished, scheme to steal a $10 million diamond from the French financier who defrauded them. Roped in to assist in the heist are the couple’s former neighbors (Timothy Spall and Celia Imrie) who are also rooting for the couple's reconciliation. (94 mins)

"With their unforced magnetism, Brosnan and Thompson are persuasive as exes who still have chemistry... They have the verve and comic chops to ignite sparks, à la Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell." – Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times

Third Person
 Third Person
Third Person tells three stories of love, passion, trust and betrayal, in a multi-strand story line reminiscent of writer/director Paul Haggis' Oscar-winning film Crash. The tales play out in New York, Paris and Rome: three couples who appear to have nothing related but share deep commonalities: lovers and estranged spouses, children lost and found. Michael (Liam Neeson) is a Pulitzer Prize-winning fiction author who has holed himself up in a hotel suite in Paris to finish his latest book. He recently left his wife, Elaine (Kim Basinger), and is having a tempestuous affair with Anna (Olivia Wilde), an ambitious young journalist who wants to write and publish fiction. At the same time, Scott (Adrien Brody), a shady American businessman, is in Italy to steal designs from fashion houses. He meets Monika (Moran Atias), a beautiful Roma woman, with whom he travels to a dangerous town in Southern Italy, where Scott starts to suspect that he is the patsy in an elaborate con game. Meanwhile Julia (Mila Kunis), an ex-soap opera actress, is caught in a custody battle for her 6-year-old son with her ex-husband Rick (James Franco), a famous New York artist. With her support cut off and her legal costs ruinous, Julia is reduced to working as a maid in the same upscale boutique hotel where she was once a frequent guest. Also starring Maria Bello and Loan Chabanol. (137 mins)

Venus in Fur
 Venus in Fur
The latest film by master director Roman Polanski (Carnage, The Pianist, Chinatown, Rosemary's Baby) is an acting tour de force by Mathieu Amalric and Emmanuelle Seigner, who previously co-starred in The Diving Bell and the Butterfly. Based on the Tony Award-winning play by David Ives, which itself was based on Leopold von Sacher-Masoch's sexually provocative novella, Venus in Fur is an enthralling battle of wills. Alone in a Paris theater after a long day of unsuccessfully auditioning actresses for his new play, writer-director Thomas (Amalric) is about to leave when actress Vanda (Seigner) bursts in, a whirlwind of erratic—and, it turns out, erotic—energy, demanding an audition. She is pushy, foul-mouthed, desperate and ill-prepared—or so it seems. But when Thomas finally, reluctantly, agrees to let her try out for the part, he is stunned and captivated by her transformation. As the extended "audition" builds momentum, Thomas moves from attraction to obsession until, with Vanda taking an ever more dominant role, the balance of power shifts completely. In French (and some German) with subtitles. (96 mins)

Le Chef
 Le Chef
All's fair in love and war, especially when the battles are dangerously delicious and terribly tantalizing! In the new comedy Le Chef, fate brings two chefs together and helps them along a journey through the intoxicating world of French haute-cuisine. Self-taught, aspiring chef Jacky (Michaël Youn) has the talent—but not the luck. Star chef Alexandre Lagarde (Jean Reno) is in danger of losing his reputation—along with his beloved restaurant. A legend in his own time, Lagarde is in serious conflict with Stanislas Matter (Julien Boisselier), the new CEO of the group that owns his restaurant. Matter is plotting to destroy Lagarde’s reputation so that he’ll have grounds to fire him and move the restaurant away from classic French cuisine towards trendy molecular gastronomy. Desperate to cling to his status as a Three Star chef (a rarity in the world of fine dining), Lagarde teams up with Jacky and together they try to find the balance between tradition and trend, as well as between family life and food obsession. Written and directed by Daniel Cohen. Partially subtitled. (PG13, 84 mins)

Words and Pictures
 Words and Pictures
A witty romantic drama, Words and Pictures stars the engaging duo of Juliette Binoche and Clive Owen working together on-screen for the first time. Prep school English teacher Jack Marcus (Owen) laments his students' obsession with social media and good grades rather than engaging with the power of the written word. A one-time literary star, Jack has not published in years, filling his spare time with drink versus the art of language. He meets his match in Dina Delsanto (Binoche)—an abstract painter and new teacher on campus, who was once celebrated for her art. From the start, the two flirt and provoke each other with equal relish. With a performance review looming and his teaching job on the line, Jack hatches an inspired plan for galvanizing student interest in their studies: he declares a war between Words and Pictures, confident that the former can convey greater meaning than the latter. Dina and her art students accept the challenge between Jack and his English students, and the battle lines are drawn. Directed by Fred Schepisi (Six Degrees of Separation, A Cry in the Dark, Roxanne). (PG13, 116 mins)

Snowpiercer
 Snowpiercer
Here is one of the most thought-provoking science-fiction movies in years. Brilliant, bloody and inventive, Snowpiercer has a great deal to say about social structure, class, fascism, capitalism, theism, man-made atrocities, and why wars are being fought and lost over controlling the means of production. Korean director Joon-ho Bong includes fitting nods to Oldboy, 2001, The Matrix, Blade Runner, Children of Men, and The Empire Strikes Back (among others). Bong’s assembled a solid cast here, as well. Chris Evans (Captain America), Tilda Swinton (all things Wes Anderson), Jamie Bell and Octavia Spencer. (R, 126 mins)

Mal Vincent hosts East Side West Side
 Mal Vincent hosts East Side West Side
When Ava Gardner as the other woman faces off against Barbara Stanwyck as the wife, sparks fly in a cat fight supreme. According to this film, the only thing that can save a troubled marriage is a trip to Virginia (or, perhaps, to get Ava out of town). Based on the novel by Marcia Davenport, it was revived in New York recently as an example of films about that city. The amazing all-star cast also includes James Mason, Cyd Charisse, Van Helfin, Gale Sondergaard and, believe it or not, Nancy Reagan. It’s directed by Mervyn LeRoy. One of Ava’s earlier films, she never looked more alluring—or more a threat to a marriage. With Gardner and Mason, it marks the return of the stars of last summer’s biggest festival hit, Pandora and the Flying Dutchman. (1949, 108 mins)

Ivory Tower
 Ivory Tower
As tuition rates spiral beyond reach and student loan debt passes $1 trillion (2nd only to mortgage debt), this popular new documentary asks: Is college worth the cost? From the halls of Harvard to public colleges in financial crisis to Silicon Valley, filmmaker Andrew Rossi (Page One: Inside the New York Times) assembles an urgent portrait of a dysfunctional system at the breaking point. Through profiles at Arizona State, Cooper Union and San Jose State—among several others—Ivory Tower reveals how colleges came to embrace a business model that promotes expansion over quality learning. The film also reports on some successful programs, from Stanford to the free desert school Deep Springs to the historically black all women's college Spelman, where the potential for life-changing college experiences endure. Ultimately, Ivory Tower asks: can we revolutionize higher academics and evolve a sustainable economic model? (108 mins)

Boyhood
 Boyhood
Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, the latest from writer/director Richard Linklater (whose last two films, Bernie and Before Midnight, were terrific) is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (a breakthrough performance by Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason's parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha, Boyhood charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before. Snapshots of adolescence, from road trips and family dinners to birthdays and graduations and all the moments in between, become transcendent, set to a soundtrack spanning the years, from Coldplay's “Yellow” to Arcade Fire's “Deep Blue.” Boyhood has been garnering some of the best reviews of the year; it’s both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting. It's impossible not to watch Mason and his family without thinking about our own journeys. (R, 166 mins)
