Our Spotlight

Ida (2014)

“For nearly a year, Pawel Pawlikowski's quietly astounding drama “Ida” has been making the film-festival rounds to deserved admiration. Winner of Poland's highest movie honor, the director and co-writer Rebecca Lenkiewicz's masterful work takes on the vital stuff — identity, faith, history, unimaginable loss — with a meditative yet absorbing authority. Unforgettable performances from newcomer Agata Trzebuchowska as Anna/Ida and Agata Kulesza as Wanda buttress the black-and-white stunner.” Lisa Kennedy

Finding Vivian Maier (2014)

“In 2007, John Maloof, a young writer working on a history of the Chicago neighborhood where he grew up, purchased a cache of photographic negatives at auction that he quickly surmised wouldn’t be of much help in his research. He set them aside, only later examining them further to conclude that they were, in fact, brilliant examples of mid-20th century street photography. They were made by Vivian Maier, a Chicago woman with no discernible footprint in the art world or digital universe at large.” Ann Hornaday

The Broken Circle Breakdown (2014)

“Traditional bluegrass songs of loss and grief provide the inspiration and score for this innovative Belgian, Flemish-language musical drama. Like the Irish film Once, it’s a drama about the lives of musical performers who sing songs within the film to illustrate the emotional journey of a relationship.” Liam Lacey

The film follows the life journey of the eldest son, Jack, through the innocence of childhood to his disillusioned adult years as he tries to reconcile a complicated relationship with his father (Brad Pitt).
