A Most Violent Year
(R)   130  minutes
1/30 - 2/5:  1:15  4:05  6:35  9:05

A Most Violent Year is a searing crime drama set in New York City during the winter of 1981, statistically the most dangerous year in the city's history. Starring Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis) and Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty), this gripping story plays out within a maze of rampant political and industry corruption plaguing the streets of a city in decay. Writer/director J.C. Chandor's (All Is Lost, Margin Call) third feature examines one immigrant's determined climb up a morally crooked ladder, where simmering rivalries and unprovoked attacks threaten his business, family and—above all—his own unwavering belief in the righteousness of his path. With A Most Violent Year, Chandor journeys in a bold new direction, toward the place where best intentions yield to raw instinct, and where we are most vulnerable to compromise what we know to be right. Also starring David Oyelowo (Selma), Alessandro Nivola and Albert Brooks.

In the darkly amusing and inspiring film Cake, Claire Simmons (Jennifer Aniston) is in pain. Her physical pain is evident in the scars that line her body and the way she carries herself, wincing with each tentative step. She’s no good at hiding her emotional pain either. Blunt to the point of searing insult, Claire’s anger seethes out of her with nearly every interaction. She has driven away her husband, her friends—even her chronic-pain support group has kicked her out. The only one left in Claire’s otherwise solitary existence is her housekeeper-cum-caretaker, Silvana (Adriana Barraza), who barely tolerates her boss’ need for liquor and prescription pills. But the suicide of Nina (Anna Kendrick), one of Claire’s fellow chronic-pain group members, prompts another fixation. In pursuing questions about the death of a woman she barely knew, Claire explores the boundaries between life and death, abandonment and heartbreak, danger and salvation. As she inserts herself into the lives of Nina’s husband (Sam Worthington) and the son Nina left behind, Claire just might find salvation.

Based on true events, Foxcatcher tells the dark and fascinating story of the unlikely and ultimately tragic relationship between an eccentric multi-millionaire and two champion wrestlers. When Olympic Gold Medal-winning wrestler Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) is invited by wealthy heir John du Pont (Steve Carell) to move onto the du Pont estate and help form a team to train for the 1988 Seoul Olympics at his new state-of-the-art training facility, Schultz jumps at the opportunity, hoping to focus on his training and finally step out of the shadow of his revered brother, Dave (Mark Ruffalo), also an Olympic Gold Medal winner. Driven by hidden needs, du Pont sees backing Mark's bid for Gold and the chance to "coach" a world-class wrestling team as an opportunity to gain the elusive respect of his peers and, more importantly, his disapproving mother (Vanessa Redgrave). Fueled by du Pont's increasing paranoia and alienation from the brothers, the trio is propelled towards a tragedy no one could have foreseen. Academy Award nominee Bennett Miller (Capote, Moneyball) once again explores large themes in society through his complex character portraits of real people. Nominated for 5 Academy Awards, including Best Actor (Carell), Best Supporting Actor (Ruffalo), Best Director and Best Original Screenplay (E. Max Frye and Dan Futterman).

MPAA Rating: R for some drug use and a scene of violence

U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle is sent to Iraq with only one mission: to protect his brothers-in-arms. His pinpoint accuracy saves countless lives on the battlefield and, as stories of his courageous exploits spread, he earns the nickname “Legend.” However, his reputation is also growing behind enemy lines, putting a price on his head and making him a prime target of insurgents. He is also facing a different kind of battle on the home front: striving to be a good husband and father from halfway around the world. Despite the danger, as well as the toll on his family at home, Chris serves through four harrowing tours of duty in Iraq, personifying the spirit of the SEAL creed to “leave no one behind.” But upon returning to his wife, Taya Renae Kyle (Sienna Miller), and kids, Chris finds that it is the war he can’t leave behind.

MPAA Rating: R for strong and disturbing war violence, and language throughout including some sexual references


Inherent Vice
(R)   150  minutes
1/23 - 1/29:  3:25  9:00

The comedy-thriller Inherent Vice is the seventh feature from writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson (The Master, There Will Be Blood, Boogie Nights) and the first ever film adaption of a Thomas Pynchon novel. Doc Sportello (Joaquin Phoenix) is a private eye whose ex-old lady (Katherine Waterston) suddenly shows up with a story about her current billionaire boyfriend (who she happens to be in love with). She claims his wife and her boyfriend plan to kidnap the billionaire and throw him in a loony bin... and she needs Doc's help. It's the tail end of the psychedelic '60s and paranoia is running the day and Doc knows that "love" is another of those words going around at the moment, like "trip" or "groovy," that's being way too overused—except this one leads to trouble. With a cast of characters that includes surfers, hustlers, dopers and rockers, a murderous loan shark, LAPD Detectives, a tenor sax player working undercover, and a mysterious entity known as the Golden Fang, which may only be a tax dodge set up by some dentists, Inherent Vice is part surf noir, part psychedelic romp and all Thomas Pynchon!

Selma is the story of a movement, and a brilliant chronicle of the tumultuous three-month period in 1965 when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (David Oyelowo) led a dangerous campaign to secure equal voting rights in the face of violent opposition. The epic march from Selma to Montgomery culminated in President Johnson (Tom Wilkinson) signing the Voting Rights Act of 1965, one of the most significant victories for the civil rights movement. Director Ava DuVernay tells the real story of how a revered leader and visionary, along with his brothers and sisters in the movement, prompted change that forever altered history—proving that one dream can change the world. Also starring Carmen Ejogo, Giovanni Ribisi, Alessandro Nivola, Tim Roth, Cuba Gooding Jr. and Oprah Winfrey.

1/30 - 2/5:  1:10  3:55  6:45  9:25

The Imitation Game is a dramatic portrayal of the life and work of one of Britain's most extraordinary unsung heroes, Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch, The Fifth Estate, Star Trek Into Darkness, TV’s "Sherlock"). Leading a motley crew of scholars, linguists, chess champions and intelligence officers, the loner mathematical genius was instrumental in cracking the code for Germany’s World War II Enigma Machine, a seemingly impossible code that changed daily, and in the process became a pioneer of modern-day computing. Keira Knightley co-stars as a supportive friend on the code-breaking team who tries (but fails) to help him lead a more normal social life. Intercut with the life-and-death struggle to break the code are scenes from Turing’s past, as an outcast at boarding school befriended by an older boy, and of the future and his disastrous encounter with the police in 1952, charged with the crime of homosexuality. An intense and haunting portrayal of a brilliant, complicated man, The Imitation Game follows a genius who under nail-biting pressure helped to shorten the war and, in turn, save thousands of lives. Also starring Charles Dance, Mark Strong and Matthew Goode. Directed by Morten Tyldum (Headhunters).

In Wild, director Jean-Marc Vallée (Dallas Buyers Club, The Young Victoria), Academy Award winner Reese Witherspoon (Walk the Line) and Academy Award nominated screenwriter Nick Hornby (An Education) bring bestselling author Cheryl Strayed’s extraordinary and inspirational adventure to the screen. After years of reckless behavior, a heroin addiction and the destruction of her marriage, Strayed (Witherspoon) makes a rash decision. Haunted by memories of her mother Bobbi (Academy Award nominee Laura Dern) and with absolutely no experience, she sets out to hike more than a thousand miles on the Pacific Crest Trail all on her own. Wild powerfully reveals her terrors and pleasures—as she forges ahead on a journey that maddens, strengthens and ultimately heals her.
