You Were Never Really Here is a hard-edged thriller starring Joaquin Phoenix (Her, The Master, Walk the Line) as Joe, a brutal and tormented enforcer on a rescue mission. Unafraid of violence, the traumatized veteran ruthlessly tracks down missing girls for a living. But when one of his jobs—trying to save a politician’s pre-teen daughter (Ekaterina Samsonov) from a sex trafficking ring—goes wrong, Joe’s nightmares overtake him; a conspiracy is uncovered, leading to what may be his death trip or his awakening. Phoenix’s stunningly powerful performance as a damaged soul was honored with a Best Actor award at the Cannes Film Festival. Auteur writer/director Lynne Ramsay (We Need to Talk About Kevin, Morvern Callar, Ratcatcher) was also awarded Best Screenplay at the same festival. Her stripped-down direction moves the story at a propulsive pace, in an impressionistic style that reveals Joe’s desperate mindset. Music by Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood (Phantom Thread). Based on the novel by Jonathan Ames.

Directed by: Lynne Ramsay

From acclaimed filmmaker Andrew Haigh (45 Years, Weekend), and based on the beloved novel by Willy Vlautin, comes Lean on Pete—a deeply moving story about love, loneliness, family, and friendship, told through the unique prism of one boy’s connection to a very special racehorse. Fifteen-year-old Charley Thompson (Charlie Plummer, All the Money in the World) arrives in Portland, Oregon with his single father Ray (Travis Fimmel), both of them eager for a fresh start after a series of hard knocks. While Ray descends into personal turmoil, Charley finds acceptance and camaraderie at a local racetrack where he lands a job caring for an aging Quarter Horse named Lean On Pete. The horse’s gruff owner Del Montgomery (Steve Buscemi) and his seasoned jockey Bonnie (Chloë Sevigny) help Charley fill the void of his father’s absence—until he discovers that Pete is bound for slaughter, prompting him to take extreme measures to spare his new friend’s life. Charley and Pete head out into the great unknown, embarking on an odyssey across the new American frontier in search of a loving aunt Charley hasn’t seen in years. They experience adventure and heartbreak in equal measure, but never lose their irrepressible hope and resiliency as they pursue their dream of finding a place they can call home. Lean on Pete is a compassionate and heartrending look at the desire for love, family, and acceptance that drives all of us.

Set in 1929, this gorgeously photographed, soulful outback Western is both a majestic historical drama and an intense chase thriller. Sam (Hamilton Morris), a middle-aged Aboriginal man, works for a preacher in the outback of Australia’s Northern Territory. When Harry (Ewen Leslie), a bitter war veteran, moves into a neighboring outpost, the preacher sends Sam and his family to help Harry renovate his cattle yards. But Sam’s relationship with the cruel and ill-tempered Harry quickly deteriorates, culminating in a violent shootout in which Sam kills Harry in self-defense. As a result, Sam becomes a wanted criminal for the murder of a white man, and is forced to flee with his wife across the deadly outback, through glorious but harsh desert country. A hunting party led by the local lawman Sergeant Fletcher (Bryan Brown) is formed to track Sam down. But as the true details of the killing start to surface, the community begins to question whether justice is really being served. Sam Neill co-stars. Directed by Warwick Thornton (Samson & Delilah).

Based on true events, Little Pink House follows small-town paramedic Susette Kelo (Catherine Keener, Get Out, Capote) as she leaves a bad marriage and starts over in a new town. She buys a rundown cottage in economically depressed New London, Connecticut, refurbishes it with her bare hands, paints it pink, meets a great guy (Callum Keith Rennie), and exhales. Then she discovers that powerful politicians are bent on bulldozing her blue-collar neighborhood, claiming the right of eminent domain, and handing the land over to pharmaceutical giant Pfizer (eager to expand their facilities because of a promising soon-to-be-released drug called Viagra). The redevelopment effort is spearheaded by Dr. Charlotte Wells (Jeanne Tripplehorn, “Big Love”); ambitious and accomplished, she’s the closest thing the gritty town has to a celebrity. Emerging as the reluctant leader of her neighbors, Susette fights all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, inspiring a nation as she seeks to help millions of Americans protect their homes. Featuring “Home Free,” an original song by David Crosby. Written and directed by Courtney Moorehead Balaker, based on the bestselling book by Jeff Benedict.
