Nominated for Best Picture, Best Actress, and Best Adapted Screenplay.
Eilis Lacey (Saoirse Ronan (Oscar, Golden Globe, SAG Award nominee for Best Actress) is a young Irish immigrant navigating her way through 1950s Brooklyn. Lured by the promise of America, Eilis departs Ireland and the comfort of her mother’s home for the shores of New York City. The initial shackles of homesickness quickly diminish as a fresh romance sweeps Eilis into the intoxicating charm of love. But soon, her new vivacity is disrupted by her past, and she must choose between two countries and the lives that exist within. Screenplay by Nick Hornby (About a Boy, High Fidelity). (PG13, 111 mins)
"Brooklyn is easily the year's best and most beguiling love story. The surprise is that it also goes deeper, sadder and truer."
– Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"Soaring, swooning and gently nostalgic, Brooklyn takes melodrama to a new level of reassuring simplicity and emotional transparency."
– Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
Of all of Shakespeare’s classic works, Macbeth must surely be amongst his most famous. The tragic tale of a fearless Scottish general haunted by his own ambition, and a prophecy that he will one day become King of Scotland, has long fascinated actors, directors and audiences. On the big screen, this has led to adaptations by directors from Orson Welles to Akira Kurosawa to Roman Polanski. Now, from the producers of The King’s Speech, comes a new version starring Michael Fassbender (Steve Jobs, 12 Years a Slave) as Macbeth and Marion Cotillard (La Vie en Rose, The Dark Knight Rises) as the ambitious Lady Macbeth, who urges him to use wicked means to gain the power of the throne. A thrilling interpretation of one of Shakespeare’s most compelling characters, Macbeth is an action-packed reimagining of the realities of war-torn times and a tale of all-consuming passion and desire. Also starring Paddy Considine (The Bourne Ultimatum), David Thewlis (the Harry Potter series), Sean Harris, Jack Reynor and Elizabeth Debicki. (R, 111 mins)
"This cinematic Macbeth possesses a terrible beauty, evoking fear, sadness, awe and confusion. Presented with the aesthetic of a dark comic book, it’s also a mournful masterpiece, rendering Shakespeare’s spectacle with all the sorrow and majesty that it deserves." – Michael O'sullivan, Washington Post
Nominated for 6 Academy Awards (including Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress, Best Adapted Screenplay), winner of the Cannes Film Festival Palme d'Or (Best Film), and nominated for several Golden Globes.
Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara give brilliant, emotional performances in this highly anticipated romantic drama from Oscar nominated filmmaker Todd Haynes (Far From Heaven). Adapted from Patricia Highsmith’s seminal novel 'The Price of Salt', the drama follows two women from very different backgrounds who find themselves in an unexpected love affair in 1950s New York. As conventional norms of the time challenge their undeniable attraction, an honest story emerges to reveal the resilience of the heart in the face of change. Haynes’ exquisitely crafted film comes alive with lush cinematography, a haunting score, and rich period detail. (R, 118 mins)
“It’s possible to watch Carol simply for its velvety beauty, but chances are that, by that stunning final moment, filmgoers will realize with a start that they care far more about the problems of these two people than they might have realized.” – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
“Even high expectations don’t quite prepare you for the startling impact of Carol, an exquisitely drawn, deeply felt love story that teases out every shadow and nuance of its characters’ inner lives with supreme intelligence, breathtaking poise and filmmaking craft of the most sophisticated yet accessible order.” – Justin Chang, Variety
Winner of the SAG Award for Best Ensemble Cast (or the equivalent of Best Picture) and Nominated for 6 Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Screenplay.
This frontrunner for the Best Picture Academy Award stars Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo (nominated), Rachel McAdams (nominated), Liev Schreiber, Brian d’Arcy James and Stanley Tucci. It's the riveting true story of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Boston Globe investigation that would rock the city and cause a crisis in one of the world’s oldest and most trusted institutions. When the newspaper’s tenacious “Spotlight” team of reporters delve into allegations of abuse in the Catholic Church, their year-long investigation uncovers a decades-long cover-up at the highest levels of Boston's religious, legal and government establishment, touching off a wave of revelations around the world. Directed by Tom McCarthy (The Visitor, The Station Agent), Spotlight is a tense investigative thriller, tracing the steps to one of the biggest crime stories in modern times. (R, 128 mins)
"Spotlight is a gripping detective story and a superlative newsroom drama, a solid procedural that tries to confront evil without sensationalism." – A.O. Scott, The New York Times
