CAFE SOCIETY is Woody Allen’s lovely, witty and charmingly clever retro-romance set in 1930s Hollywood…

ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS: THE MOVIE is a hysterically good-hearted and welcome return to the much beloved Brit sitcom characters…

FLORENCE FOSTER JENKINS is a fizzy, funny and compassionate portrait of self-delusion and devotion!

a96b699b-05e1-4791-a73e-3863c25c7a47.jpg“Aiming for the same kind of affectionate comic tone as The King’s Speech, this gentle musical farce from director Stephen Frears delivers gentle laughs and classy star performances.” – Stephen Dalton, Hollywood Reporter

Based on the inspiring true story of an American socialite and amateur operatic soprano who obsessively pursued her dream of becoming a singer despite her lack of talent, FLORENCE FOSTER JENKINS is a warm, witty, wondrously uproarious celebration of indulged eccentricity. The voice Florence (an exceptionally inspired Meryl Streep) hears in her head is divine, but to the rest of the world it is hilariously awful. Thus far, her devoted husband (Hugh Grant) has managed to protect his fanciful wife from the truth, but it’s possible he’s bitten off more than he can chew. This wildly whimsical tale revels in the indelible passion and the glory of the human spirit!

“Streep makes the character’s delusional faith in her own talent so infectious that we ache at the thought of Florence’s impending humiliation even as we prepare ourselves to laugh at it.” – Dana Stevens, Slate

EAT THAT QUESTION: FRANK ZAPPA IN HIS OWN WORDS is an insightful nod to the musician’s irreverent, eccentric genius!

6b3f4aea-2583-4f76-8db2-5b2a118ef4e2.jpg“Eat That Question, a fascinating and compelling dive into an artist’s uniquely ticking parts, gives voice to a complex dude and broadens the picture.”
– Brad Wheeler, Globe and Mail

It is wholly fitting that both a comet and a mollusk are named in Frank Zappa’s honor. The famed American musician, composer and thinker created satirical, operatic interpretations of music that seemed to originate from another world. Thorsten Schütte’s sharp, energetic documentary focuses on Zappa’s public persona and his uncompromising integrity against music censorship. Splicing together potent TV interview footage and pinnacle performances spanning his 30-year career, EAT THAT QUESTION immerses us into the charismatic innovator’s complexities and idiosyncrasies. His unique music and vital ideas cut across generations and still resonate today.

“Eat That Question will please Zappa fans, but it’s not just for fans only. It serves as a great introduction to an important artist who was ahead of his time.” – G. Allen Johnson, San Francisco Chronicle

HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE, from the director of WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS, is a charming, heartfelt and witty film that explores the meaning of family with tenderness and visual flair!

2036a285-af68-4192-98ed-e7bc86b7de2a.jpg“Hunt for the Wilderpeople is all about life-changing moments and the people who are the catalysts. It’s about learning from those around you, regardless of age or circumstance.” – Miriam Di Nunzio, Chicago Sun-Times

Having firmly cemented himself as one of the most exciting and funniest voices in film today, director Taika Waititi (WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS, EAGLE VS. SHARK) treats us to a deliriously off-kilter, cleverly crafted and truly touching tale about a young orphan and his gruff guardian. Raised on hip-hop and in foster care, defiant city kid Ricky is given a fresh start in the New Zealand countryside. A bizarre turn of events, however, forces him and his cantankerous uncle to flee from clueless authorities. Never short on laughs, HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE is a relentlessly entertaining lark that melds equal parts humor and humanity into an unforgettable, adventurous coming-of-age gem about forming and fostering real family regardless of where or how we find them.

“Laugh-out-loud funny one minute, achingly sad the next, “Hunt for the Wilderpeople” takes the audience on a rollicking yet poignant journey through the New Zealand backcountry in the company of a pair of engagingly eccentric characters.” – Soren Anderson, Seattle Times

CAFE SOCIETY is a buoyant, bubbly and delicious summer cocktail served with a twist of nostalgia and romance!

“It’s a beautiful thing to behold.” – Bill Zwecker, Chicago Sun-Times

“Romantic, bittersweet and funny as hell, Café Society turns Hollywood inside out, rooting through the superficial tinsel to find the real tinsel. You go away gobsmacked, beaming and happy to be both.” – Rex Reed, New York Observer

In this fantasized tribute to the roaring Twenties and Thirties, CAFÉ SOCIETY is Woody Allen’s glittering valentine to the movie stars, socialites, playboys, debutantes, politicians and gangsters who epitomized the excitement and glamour of the age, painting a stunning and sensational picture of a magnificent golden era. Bobby Dorfman (Jesse Eisenberg) takes us on a journey from pastel-clad dealmakers in plush Hollywood mansions where his artistic uncle (Steve Carell) rules — to the tribulations of his humble Bronx family in New York, falling in love along the way. It’s an effervescent, incomparable step back in time and tells a tender romantic tale of dreams that never die.

“Kristen Stewart is irresistible here. Allen is a legendary director of women, and Stewart’s performance is shockingly good, awards-caliber work.” – Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune

ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS: THE MOVIE is a marvelously zany ride made with an enormous amount of heart and affection!

3a374b3a-cefa-4470-9652-7efabadcd89a.jpg“This breezy blast of bawdy jokes and Bollinger product placement should lift spirits in a post-Brexit Britain and earn a considerable pile of devalued sterling along the way.”- Leslie Felperin, Hollywood Reporter

They’re baaaack and it’s absolutely fabulous, sweetie darlings! Thanks to the famous sitcom from the BBC, Patsy Stone and Edina Monsoon are two of the most iconic characters in British comedy. Appropriate for their big screen debut, Eddy and Patsy are still oozing glitz and glamour and are back to their old tricks — shopping, drinking and partying their way around London’s trendiest hotspots. However, life as they know it comes to a halt when they are blamed for a malevolent melee involving model Kate Moss during a fashionable launch party. Fleeing penniless to the glamorous French Riviera, the two bawdy broads must hatch a plan to salvage their legendary lifestyle. It’s one rollicking, riotous adventure after another!

“They’re back, sweetie darlings-though it feels like they never left us.” – Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly
