Close

May 31, 2017

Bridget Jones thought that after the struggles of her thirties, her forties would go a little more to plan. Until...she finds herself single yet again and older. Although she has a "top job" as a news program producer and tries to gain some semblance of control, she finds herself quickly falling for another handsome man, Jack, while still maintaining an on and off relationship with Mark Darcy. Suddenly, a pregnancy, a question of paternity and the normal struggles of a forty-something show Bridget that plans rarely works out. Sometimes, you just have to go with what life throws at you.

June 1, 2017

It is the perspective of Patrick, a man in his thirties asking himself "what am I chasing?" Caught in the spiral of overconsumption, Patrick does nothing with his own happiness in mind. He solely wishes others to envy what he has, but life soon catches up to him and reminds him he has become something other than what he wanted.

June 7, 2017

In a near dystopian future, the most sacred virtue is partnership. The City dictates that single people be captured and taken to The Hotel, where they watch propaganda praising the union between two people. The singles must find a romantic partner within a forty-five day period, which can be extended by hunting hotel escapees in the forest. If the singles fail to find a mate, they are transformed into beasts and sentenced to a life of torment in The Woods.

June 14, 2017

In Gran Torino, Clint Eastwood plays Walk Kowalski, a Korean War veteran who has recently been widowed. In spite of his insularity and distrust of his neighbors, he is unwittingly drawn into cultural and societal struggles when a local gang member tries and fails to steal his prized Gran Torino. From there, Walt makes unexpected allies as well as enemies, and may well have his decades-old prejudices challenged along the way. Gran Torino is a thrilling drama as well as a commentary on modern social issues, featuring smart writing and some of the best acting of Clint Eastwood's storied career.
