Tolkien (October 29th)
Beautiful cinematography and costumes highlight this period drama. TOLKIEN explores the formative years of the renowned author's life as he finds friendship, courage and inspiration among a group of fellow writers and artists at school. This special brotherhood of outcasts strengthens as they grow up and weather love and loss together, including Tolkien's tumultuous courtship of his beloved Edith Bratt, until the outbreak of the First World War which threatens to tear their fellowship apart. All of these experiences would later inspire Tolkien to write his famous Middle-earth novels. 111 Minutes. Rated PG-13 for some sequences of war violence.
Best of Enemies (November 5th)
Based on a true story, THE BEST OF ENEMIES centers on the unlikely relationship between Ann Atwater (Henson), an outspoken civil rights activist, and C.P. Ellis (Rockwell), a local Ku Klux Klan leader who reluctantly co-chaired a community summit, battling over the desegregation of schools in Durham, North Carolina during the racially-charged summer of 1971. The incredible events that unfolded would change Durham and the lives of Atwater and Ellis forever. Rated PG-13 for thematic material, racial epithets, some violence and a suggestive reference. 132 minutes.
Maria by Callas (November 12th)
A Documentary. Tom Volf's MARIA BY CALLAS is the first film to tell the life story of the legendary Greek/American opera singer completely in her own words. Told through performances, TV interviews, home movies, family photographs, private letters and unpublished memoirs-nearly all of which have never been shown to the public-the film reveals the essence of an extraordinary woman who rose from humble beginnings in New York City to become a glamorous international superstar and one of the greatest artists of all time. Volf took four years of painstaking research, which included personal outreach to dozens of Callas's closest friends and associates, who allowed him to share their personal memorabilia in the film. When recordings of Callas's voice are not available, Joyce DiDonato, one of contemporary opera's biggest stars, reads her words. Rated PG for mild thematic elements, some smoking and brief language. 95 minutes.
Leave No Trace (November 19th)
Will (Ben Foster) and his teenage daughter, Tom (Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie), have lived off the grid for years in the forests of Portland, Oregon. When their idyllic life is shattered, both are placed into social services. After clashing with their new surroundings, Will and Tom set off on a harrowing journey back to their wild homeland. Directed by Debra Granik (Winter’s Bone) from a script adapted by Granik and Anne Rosellini. Rated PG for thematic material throughout. 109 minutes.
