OPENS FEBRUARY 13TH:

Four-time Oscar 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. Written and directed by Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland (The Last of Robin Hood, Quinceañera), based on the novel by Lisa Genova.

Rated PG-13, Run Time: 1hr 41mins

COMING SOON:

Sandra (Cotillard) has just been released from the hospital to find that she no longer has a job. According to management, the only way Sandra can hope to regain her position at the factory is to convince her co-workers to sacrifice their much-needed yearly bonuses. Now, over the course of one weekend, Sandra must confront each co-worker individually in order to win a majority of their votes before time runs out. With TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT, the Dardennes have turned a relevant social inquiry into a powerful statement on community solidarity, once again delivering a film that is simple on the surface but alive with both compassion and wisdom.

COMING SOON:

Celebrated director Mike Leigh (Secrets and Lies, Happy-Go-Lucky) returns to period drama which he mined so successfully in Topsy-Turvy, to create an epic biography of the brilliant English painter J.M.W. Turner (Timothy Spall). Veteran actor Spall, who appeared in the Harry Potter movies and played Churchill in The King’s Speech, won the Best Actor award at the Cannes Film Festival for his performance as the quirky outsider who was a master artist. The film covers the last half of his life, from the height of his success in the 1830s to his death in 1851. Turner, a magician with light and considered a forerunner of the Impressionists, was completely obsessed with his art. But his personal life was a mess. He sometimes slept with his fond housekeeper (Dorothy Atkinson), but still treated her as a servant; he ignored his grasping ex-mistress (Ruth Sheen), who had borne him two daughters. Eventually he fell in love with his seaside landlady (Marion Bailey) and lived with her incognito. A constant traveler in search of new sights to paint, he enjoyed the hospitality of the landed aristocracy, visited brothels and was a popular but anarchic member of the Royal Academy of Arts. He once had himself tied to the mast of a ship in bad weather in order to paint a snowstorm. The film excels in creating completely convincing period authenticity; cinematographer Dick Pope (also a prizewinner at Cannes) seems to capture Turner’s genius with glowing images.

Rated R, Run Time: 2hrs 29mins

COMING SOON:

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. (c) Fox Searchlight
