With The Disaster Artist, James Franco transforms the tragicomic true-story of aspiring filmmaker and infamous Hollywood outsider Tommy Wiseau—an artist whose passion was as sincere as his methods were questionable—into a celebration of friendship, artistic expression, and dreams pursued against insurmountable odds. Based on Greg Sestero’s best-selling tell-all about the making of Tommy's cult-classic disasterpiece The Room (“The Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made”), The Disaster Artist is a hilarious and welcome reminder that there is more than one way to become a legend—and no limit to what you can achieve when you have absolutely no idea what you're doing.
Gary Oldman (Academy Award nominee for Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) gives a masterful, gripping performance as Winston Churchill, leading his country in its darkest hour. In the early days of World War II, with the fall of France imminent and the Allied army cornered on the beaches of Dunkirk as the seemingly unstoppable Nazi forces advance, the fate of Western Europe hangs on the leadership of the newly-appointed Prime Minister Churchill. While maneuvering his political rivals, he must confront the ultimate choice: negotiate a peace with Hitler and save the British people at a terrible cost or try to rally the nation and fight on against incredible odds. Darkest Hour is the dramatic and inspiring story of four weeks in 1940 during which Churchill’s courage to lead changed the course of world history. Written by Anthony McCarten (The Theory of Everything) and directed by Joe Wright (Atonement, Hanna, Pride & Prejudice), the biographical drama also stars Kristin Scott Thomas, Lily James, Stephen Dillane, Ronald Pickup and Ben Mendelsohn.
The new film by Luca Guadagnino (I Am Love, A Bigger Splash) is a sensual and transcendent tale of first love, based on the acclaimed novel by André Aciman, adapted for the screen by James Ivory. It’s the summer of 1983 in beautiful northern Italy, and Elio Perlman (Timothée Chalamet, Interstellar, Lady Bird), a precocious 17-year-old Italian-American boy, spends his days in his family’s 17th century villa transcribing and playing classical music, reading, and flirting with his friend Marzia (Esther Garrel). While Elio’s sophistication and intellectual gifts suggest he is already a fully-fledged adult, there is much that yet remains innocent and unformed about him, particularly about matters of the heart. When Oliver (Armie Hammer), a handsome American scholar working on his doctorate, arrives as the annual summer intern to help Elio’s father (Michael Stuhlbarg), an eminent professor of Greco-Roman culture, Elio takes notice. Amid the sun-drenched splendor of the idyllic setting, Elio and Oliver discover the heady beauty of awakening desire over the course of a summer that will alter their lives forever.
