    February 27th

    Comedy, Drama
    Claire Simmons (Jennifer Aniston) is in pain. It is evident in the scars that line her body and the way she carries herself, wincing with each step. She's no good at hiding her emotional pain either. Blunt to the point of insult, Claire's anger seethes out of her with every interaction. She drove away her husband, friends, even her chronic pain support group has kicked her out. The only one left in Claire's otherwise solitary existence is her caretaker, Silvana (Adriana Barraza), who condones her boss' need for liquor and pills. But the suicide of Nina (Anna Kendrick), a fellow chronic-pain group member, prompts another fixation. On her pursuit, Claire explores the boundaries between life and death, abandonment and heartbreak, danger and salvation. As she inserts herself into the lives of Nina's husband (Sam Worthington) and son, Claire just might find salvation.

    Director: Daniel Barnz

  • Miss Julie

    Miss Julie

    March 13th

    Drama
    The ten films in which Liv Ullmann starred for Ingmar Bergman -- including such classics as Persona, Cries and Whispers, and Scenes from a Marriage -- represent one of the greatest director-actor collaborations in cinema history. It was no surprise, then, that when Ullmann herself moved into the director's chair, she demonstrated an unerring ability to summon the best from her casts. That skill is once again on display in her adaptation of Miss Julie, a lacerating study of class, power, and desire that unfolds one Midsummer's Eve in the late 1800s. Moving the action of August Strindberg's canonical play from Sweden to County Fermanagh in the north of Ireland, Ullmann's film opens as the eponymous Julie (Jessica Chastain), daughter of an Anglo-Irish aristocrat, sets out to seduce one of her father's senior servants, the worldly valet John (Colin Farrell). The charged flirtation between the two doubles as a kind of psychological gamesmanship, which deepens and darkens as the night rolls on -- much of it witnessed by the house cook Kathleen (Samantha Morton), who, despite being John's's ostensible betrothed, remains quietly resigned throughout. Seamlessly combining the spatial dictates of the stage with the geographical freedom of film, Ullmann makes brilliant use of the vast country manor in which the film is set, dividing its rooms into compartments of anxious activity, with the kitchen serving as the nucleus of simmering tensions waiting to boil over. As would be expected, Miss Julie's greatest strength derives from its performances. As Julie, Chastain possesses a beguiling blend of privileged petulance and vulnerability, while Farrell is deliciously duplicitous as John, slipping between bootlicking submission and sudden displays of dominance. Yet the film's secret weapon is Morton, frequently acting opposite an ailing pug yet exuding an eerie canniness about all that transpires as this upstairs-downstairs contest careens toward its chilling finish.

    Director: Liv Ullmann

    Cast:
    Colin Farrell, Samantha Morton, Jessica Chastain

  • The Cobbler

    The Cobbler

    March 13th

    Comedy, Drama
    THE COBBLER is a warm and character-driven comedy that plays to the strengths of Adam Sandler's and Thomas McCarthy's most commercial successes. Sandler plays a 4th generation shoe-maker who discovers a magical sewing machine in his father's basement that allows him to transform into other people by wearing their shoes. Similar in theme to Tom Hanks' BIG, TRADING PLACES, and 13 GOING ON 30, THE COBBLER provides the perfect vehicle for Sandler to exhibit his endearing and selfless boyish charm, taking him on a voyage of self-discovery and learning the importance of family via the magic of "walking a mile in another man's shoes." A journey that results not only in changing himself, but the world around him.

    Director: Tom McCarthy

    Cast:
    Adam Sandler, Dan Stevens, Method Man, Dustin Hoffman, Steve Buscemi, Ellen Barkin, Melonie Diaz, Yul Vasquez, Fritz Weaver, Jared Sandler
