  • Black Souls

    May - Black Souls

    Beginning May 8. The Carbone family consists of three brothers, Luigi and Rocco who are engaged in the international drug trade and Luciano who has remained on the Mediterranean coast—herding goats. His 20-year old son Leo has little respect for his farmer father, but idealizes his Mafioso uncles. When Leo shoots up a bar owned by a rival family, his reckless actions create trouble that brings the whole family back to their ancestral town for the inevitable showdown. "Director Francesco Munzi lets his tragic narrative unfold gradually and subtly, like a neo-neorealist take on The Godfather." -Bilge Ebiri, Vulture.comn

  • Iris

    May - Iris

    Beginning May 8. Iris pairs legendary, recently late documentarian Albert Maysles with Iris Apfel, the quick-witted, flamboyantly dressed 93-year-old style maven who has had an outsized presence on the New York fashion scene for decades. More than a fashion film, the film is a story about creativity and how a soaring free spirit continues to inspire. “An interest in fashion is not required to enjoy and admire this truly original character.” -Kristin Tillotson, Minneapolis Star Tribune | full review

    Beginning May 8. Antonio is a solitary man. To deal with the economic crisis and unemployment, he has invented a job for himself as a stand-in.

    Beginning May 15. Tangerines is a story of awakening humanity, told with intimacy and elegance.

  • The 100 Year Old Man

    May - The 100 Year Old Man

    Beginning May 22. Allan finds himself stuck in a nursing home. Determined to escape on his 100th birthday, he leaps out of a window and onto the nearest bus, kicking off an unexpected journey involving, among other surprises, a suitcase stuffed with cash. Like an unruly Nordic cousin of Forrest Gump, Allan’s youthful escapades and current adventures weave together into an offbeat treat for anyone who’s young at heart. “Like 2011's The Intouchables, which became a runaway hit in its home territory of France, unsurprisingly 100 Year Old Man... has captured Swedish hearts - as well as mine.” – Louise Keller. Urban Cinephile (Australia)

  • Good Kill

    May - Good Kill

    Beginning May 22. A fighter-pilot turned drone-pilot, based in Las Vegas, fights the Taliban by remote control for twelve hours a day, then goes home to the suburbs and feuds with his wife and kids for the other twelve. But the pilot is starting to question the mission. “Hawke's effectively simmering performance helps create a potent and provocative report on how combat is mutating into a real-life video-game.” -Trevor Johnston, Radio Times
