UPCOMING FILMS

(all dates are tentative and subject to change)

OPENS FEBRUARY 19TH:

The magnificent Maggie Smith (“Downton Abbey,” The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, the Harry Potter series) shines in the hilarious and touching story of Miss Shepherd, a homeless woman of uncertain origins who “temporarily” parks her van in the driveway of playwright Alan Bennett (Alex Jennings) in North London—and ends up staying for 15 years. Arrayed in a mismatched panoply of rags, Miss Shepherd is hygienically challenged, violently allergic to classical music, maddeningly stubborn and guided by messages direct from the Virgin Mary. What begins as a begrudged favor by Bennett grows into a relationship that will change both their lives. This “mostly true” story, based on the memoir and play by Bennett (The History Boys, The Madness of King George, Prick Up Your Ears), was filmed on the actual street and in the house where it happened; it is directed by Nicholas Hytner, working with Bennett for the third time. With a supporting cast of Jim Broadbent, James Corden, Frances de la Tour, Roger Allam and Dominic Cooper.

Rated PG 13, Run Time: 1 hr 44 mins

OPENS FEBRUARY 19TH:

An Academy Award nominee for Best Actress (Charlotte Rampling, Under the Sand, Stardust Memories), 45 Years is a moving and profound look at marriage and the secrets we keep. There is just one week until Kate Mercer’s (Rampling) 45th wedding anniversary and the planning for the party is going well. But then a letter arrives for her husband (Tom Courtenay, Dr. Zhivago, The Dresser). The body of his first love has been discovered, frozen and preserved in the icy glaciers of the Swiss Alps. Kate and Geoff’s marriage is shaken by the discovery, which calls into question the life they’ve built together. By the time the party is upon them, five days later, there may not be a marriage left to celebrate. 45 Years is a new take on relationships, old age, forgiveness and jealousy, from acclaimed director and co-writer Andrew Haigh (Weekend, HBO’s “Looking”).

OPENS FEBRUARY 26TH:

In Michael Moore’s provocative and hilarious documentary, he'll stop at nothing to figure out how to actually make America great again. Where to Invade Next is an expansive, rib-tickling and subversive comedy in which Moore, playing the role of “invader,” visits a host of nations to learn how the U.S. could improve its own prospects. The creator of Bowling for Columbine and Fahrenheit 9/11 is back with this hilarious and eye-opening call to arms. Turns out the solutions to America’s most entrenched problems already exist in the world—they’re just waiting to be co-opted.

Rated R, Run Time: 1 hr 59 mins

OPENS FEBRUARY 26TH:

Winner of four prizes at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, including the Grand Prix, Son of Saul is set in October 1944 at Auschwitz-Birkenau. Saul (Géza Röhrig) is a Hungarian member of the Sonderkommando, the group of Jewish prisoners isolated from the camp and forced to assist the Nazis in the machinery of large-scale extermination. While working in one of the crematoriums, Saul discovers the body of a boy he takes for his son. As the Sonderkommando plans a rebellion, Saul decides to carry out an impossible task: save the child’s body from the flames, find a rabbi to recite the mourner’s Kaddish and offer the boy a proper burial. With the camera primarily on Saul, viewers are plunged directly into the heart of a concentration camp. Son of Saul doesn’t tell the story of the Holocaust, but of one man caught in a dreadful situation. Forced to lose his humanity, he finds moral survival in the salvaging of the boy’s body. Hungary’s Official Selection for Best Foreign Language Film consideration at the 88th Academy Awards. (Fully subtitled)
