It Follows
(R)   105  minutes

The terrifying thriller It Follows is one of the most unique and creative horror films in ages. For 19-year-old Jay (Maika Monroe, The Guest), the fall should be about school, boys and weekends at the lake. Yet, after a seemingly innocent sexual encounter, she suddenly finds herself plagued by nightmarish visions—she can’t shake the sensation that someone, or something, is following her. As the threat closes in, Jay and her friends must somehow escape the horrors that are only a few steps behind. With a riveting central performance from Monroe and a strikingly ominous electronic score by Disasterpeace, It Follows took the 2014 Cannes Film Festival by storm. Written and directed by David Robert Mitchell (The Myth of the American Sleepover).

MPAA Rating: R for thematic elements, some sexuality and smoking


(R)   115  minutes

George and Serena Pemberton (Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence, stars of American Hustle) are love-struck newlyweds who build a timber empire in Depression-era North Carolina. Serena soon proves herself to be equal to any man: overseeing loggers, hunting rattlesnakes, even saving a man’s life in the wilderness. With power and influence now in their hands, the Pembertons refuse to let anyone stand in the way of their inflated love and ambitions. However, once Serena discovers George’s hidden past and faces an unchangeable fate of her own, the Pembertons’ passionate marriage begins to unravel, leading toward a dramatic reckoning. Based on the book by Ron Rash, Serena also stars Rhys Ifans and Toby Jones. Directed by Susanne Bier (In a Better World, Love Is All You Need).

(PG13)   125  minutes

One choice can transform you-or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves--and herself--while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love. Tris's initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable--and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships. Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so.

MPAA Rating: PG13 for intense violence and action throughout, some sensuality, thematic elements and brief language


Red Army
(PG)   80 minutes

This wonderfully entertaining documentary by Gabe Polsky shows the waning days of the Soviet Union and the most successful dynasty in sports history, the Red Army ice hockey team. Potent patriotic symbols, the hockey stars were idolized nationally but forced to train in a restricted camp for 11 months of the year, missing their families. Brilliant coach Anatoli Tarasov honed them to a skill unmatched in the world, but he ran afoul of politics and was replaced by a KGB-approved hack. As the Soviet Union wavered on the brink of breaking up, government control on the hockey stars eased enough to allow them to consider eagerly-offered lucrative contracts with the NHL—as long as the government could keep 90% of the big bucks. Told from the perspective of the team's charismatic captain, Slava Fetisov, a loyal team player for decades who eventually took a stand opposing the powerful forces of the government, it is a stirring tale of friendships, betrayals and compelling personal dramas. Full of humor, action, human appeal and historical insight, Red Army gives a uniquely revealing look inside the Cold War as the Soviet empire began to disintegrate.

MPAA Rating: PG for thematic material and language


What We Do in the Shadows
(NR)   90  minutes

The creators of HBO’s hit series "Flight of the Conchords," Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi, co-write, co-direct and co-star in this hilarious comedy in which an endearingly unhip quartet of vampires squabble over household chores, struggle to keep up with the latest trends, antagonize the local werewolves and deal with the rigors of living on a very, very strict diet. Flatmates Viago, Deacon and Vladislav are just trying to get by in modern society; from paying rent and sticking to the housework roster to trying to get invited into nightclubs, they’re just like anyone else—except they’re immortal and must feast on human blood. When their 8,000-year-old flatmate Petyr turns 20-something human hipster Nick into a vampire, the guys must teach him the ropes and guide him through his new found eternal life. And in return they are forced to learn a thing or two about modern society, fashions, technology and the internet. But it’s the introduction of Nick’s human friend, Stu, that really changes the vampires’ lives and attitudes. When Stu’s life is threatened, the vamps show us that maybe humans are worth fighting for, and that even though your heart may be cold and dead, it doesn’t mean you can’t feel anything.

MPAA Rating: Not Rated


The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
(PG)   125  minutes

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is the expansionist dream of Sonny (Dev Patel), and it’s making more claims on his time than he has available, considering his imminent marriage to the love of his life, Sunaina (Tina Desai). Sonny has his eye on a promising property now that his first venture, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel for the Elderly and Beautiful, has only a single remaining vacancy—posing a rooming predicament for fresh arrivals Guy (Richard Gere) and Lavinia (Tamsin Greig). Evelyn and Douglas (Judi Dench and Bill Nighy) have now joined the Jaipur workforce, and are wondering where their regular dates for Chilla pancakes will lead, while Norman and Carol (Ronald Pickup and Diana Hardcastle) are negotiating the tricky waters of an exclusive relationship, as Madge (Celia Imrie) juggles two eligible and very wealthy suitors. Perhaps the only one who may know the answers is newly installed co-manager of the hotel, Muriel (Maggie Smith), the keeper of everyone's secrets. As the demands of a traditional Indian wedding threaten to engulf them all, an unexpected way forward presents itself. Directed by John Madden (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Shakespeare in Love).

MPAA Rating: PG for some language and suggestive comments


Still Alice
(PG13)   105  minutes

Best Actress nominee Julianne Moore (Far From Heaven, The Hours, The End of the Affair, Boogie Nights) gives a terrific, heartbreaking and unforgettable performance as Alice Howland, a renowned linguistics professor, happily married with three adult children. In the words of her husband John (Alec Baldwin), she's the most beautiful and most intelligent woman he's ever known. But Alice finds herself forgetting words—her stock in trade. Frightened, she consults her doctor, and receives a devastating diagnosis: early onset Alzheimer's disease. Her loving family tries to support her, but finds their bonds thoroughly tested. Her children, Anna (Kate Bosworth), Tom (Hunter Parrish) and Lydia (Kristen Stewart) each meet the crisis in their own way. Lydia, an aspiring actress, has been at odds with her mother over her own future, and tries to mend the breach before it is too late. Alice's struggle to stay connected to who she once was is frightening, poignant, and inspiring. Told with a quiet restraint that is more powerful than sentimental melodrama, Still Alice will touch your heart.

MPAA Rating: PG13 for mature thematic material, and brief language including a sexual reference
