Jessica Lange, Joan Allen and Kathy Bates hit the road in BONNEVILLE, a story about three friends who “come of age” for a second time on a trip across the great American West.  Faced with the decision of a lifetime, Arvilla Holden (Lange) loads up her 1966 Bonneville convertible and, with her friends (Allen, Bates) in tow, sets out from Pocatello, Idaho en route to Santa Barbara. 

As they detour to spots like Bryce Canyon and Las Vegas, it doesn’t take long for the women to realize Arvilla has something unexpected in store.  But what none of them realize is that what began as a simple trip will end up becoming a chance to rediscover themselves, their friendship, the importance of promises – and of letting go.  Also starring Tom Skerritt and Christine Baranski, BONNEVILLE unites three of the most acclaimed actresses of our time in a story that celebrates fun, adventure and living life to the fullest.

Straight from the front lines in Iraq, THE WAR TAPES is the first war movie filmed by soldiers themselves. 
 
Funnier, spicier, and more gut wrenching than any news report, this is Operation Iraqi Freedom as filmed by Sergeant Steve Pink, Sergeant Zack Bazzi and Specialist Mike Moriarty. Steve is a wisecracking carpenter who aspires to be a writer. Zack is a Lebanese-American university student who loves to travel and is fluent in Arabic. Mike is a father who seeks honor and redemption. Each leaves a woman behind – a girlfriend, a mother and a wife.  
 
Through their candid footage, these men open their hearts and take us on an unforgettable journey, capturing camaraderie and humor along with the brutal and terrifying experiences they face.  
 
These soldiers got the story that 2,700 embedded reporters never could.

Finbar McBride (Peter Dinklage) is a man trying to live life on his own terms. Looking only to be left alone, he takes up residence in a rural town's old train depot. But much like the station agents that occupied small town depots before him, he finds himself reluctantly becoming enmeshed in the lives of his neighbors, especially Olivia (Patricia Clarkson), a forty-year-old artist struggling with the break up of her marriage, and Joe (Bobby Cannavale) a thirty-year-old with a talent for cooking and an insatiable hunger for conversation - whether anyone wants to talk to him or not.

THE STATION AGENT is about three people with nothing in common, except their shared solitude, until chance circumstances bring their lives together. Before long, from this forgotten depot, this mismatched threesome forges an unlikely bond, which ultimately reveals that even isolation is better shared.

 

The Fog of War:

of Robert S. McNamara

THE FOG OF WAR is legendary filmmaker Errol Morris' Oscar® winning documentary about Robert S. McNamara. About Morris, Roger Ebert writes, "After twenty years of reviewing films, I haven't found another filmmaker who intrigues me more...Errol Morris is like a magician, and as great a filmmaker as Hitchcock or Fellini."

THE FOG OF WAR is a 20th century fable, a story of an American dreamer who rose from humble origins to the heights of political power. Robert S. McNamara was both witness to and participant in many of the crucial events of the 20th century: the crippling Depression of the 1930s, the industrialization of the war years, the development of a different kind of warfare based on air power and the creation of a new American meritocracy. He was also an idealist who saw his dreams and ideals challenged by the role he played in history.

 
Stevie

STEVIE is Steve James' critically acclaimed documentary about a man who was James' own "Little Brother" in the 1980s. However, as James writes, "Stevie's life had taken a dramatic and awful turn. Instead of a modest portrait study of a troubled boy-man, STEVIE became a four and a half year odyssey following the unfolding drama of Stevie's case and the profound impact it had on his family."

"A vivid portrait of emotional bonds, responsibility and family in America. Directed by HOOP DREAMS maestro Steve James, STEVIE is one of those magical docs that makes you look differently at the world upon re-entering the hard light of day. A knockout!"
