Judas and the Black Messiah
FBI informant William O’Neal (LaKeith Stanfield) infiltrates the Illinois Black Panther Party and is tasked with keeping tabs on their charismatic leader, Chairman Fred Hampton (Daniel Kaluuya). A career thief, O’Neal revels in the danger of manipulating both his comrades and his handler, Special Agent Roy Mitchell (Jesse Plemons). Hampton’s political prowess grows just as he’s falling in love with fellow revolutionary Deborah Johnson (Dominique Fishback). Meanwhile, a battle wages for O’Neal’s soul. Will he align with the forces of good? Or subdue Hampton and The Panthers by any means, as FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover (Martin Sheen) commands? Inspired by true events, JUDAS AND THE BLACK MESSIAH is directed by Shaka King, marking his studio feature film directorial debut.
From acclaimed actress Robin Wright comes her directorial debut LAND, the poignant story of one woman’s search for meaning in the vast and harsh American wilderness. Edee (Wright), in the aftermath of an unfathomable event, finds herself unable to stay connected to the world she once knew and in the face of that uncertainty, retreats to the magnificent, but unforgiving, wilds of the Rockies. After a local hunter (Demián Bichir) brings her back from the brink of death, she must find a way to live again.
Pretty in Pink 35th Anniversary
One of many special event screenings this month is this '80s romance comedy classic! Teen sensations Molly Ringwald and Andrew McCarthy drew raves for their starring performances in this bittersweet love story by John Hughes. She's a high school girl from the wrong side of town. He's the wealthy heartthrob who asks her to the prom. As fast as their romance builds, it's threatened by the painful reality of peer pressure. Director Howard Deutch reflects on the emotional twists of bringing PRETTY IN PINK to the screen, from his friendship with writer/producer John Hughes to the disastrous test screening featuring the contested original ending. Plays on February 11, 12, and 14.
The World to Come
In this powerful 19th century romance set in the American Northeast, Abigail, a farmer’s wife, and her new neighbor Tallie find themselves irrevocably drawn to each other. A grieving Abigail tends to her withdrawn husband Dyer as free spirit Tallie bristles at the jealous control of her husband Finney. Together, their intimacy begins to fill a void in each other's lives they never knew existed.
"My plan was to die before the money ran out," says 60-year-old penniless Manhattan socialite Frances Price (Michelle Pfeiffer), but things didn’t go as planned. Her husband Franklin has been dead for 12 years and with his vast inheritance gone, she cashes in the last of her possessions and resolves to live out her twilight days anonymously in a borrowed apartment in Paris, accompanied by her directionless son Malcolm (Lucas Hedges) and a cat named Small Frank—who may or may not embody the spirit of Frances’s dead husband.
Still in Theatres
CINDERELLA is a musically-driven, bold new take on the traditional “Cinderella” story, written and directed by Kay Cannon (BLOCKERS). Our heroine (Camila Cabello) is an ambitious young woman whose dreams are bigger than the world will allow. The cast also features Idina Menzel, Billy Porter, and Nicholas Galitzine, with Minnie Driver and Pierce Brosnan.
