Two Days, One Night
(PG13)   100  minutes

For the first time, Belgian filmmakers Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne (The Kid With a Bike, Rosetta) team up with a major international star, Marion Cotillard (La Vie en Rose), to create a universal story about working class people living on the edges of society. Sandra (Cotillard) has just returned to work after recovering from a serious bout with depression. Realizing that the company can operate with one less employee, management tells Sandra she is to be let go. After learning that her co-workers will vote to decide her fate on Monday morning, Sandra races against time over the course of the weekend, often with the help of her husband, to convince each of her fellow employees to sacrifice their much-needed bonuses so she can keep her job. With each encounter, Sandra is brought into a different world with unexpected results in this powerful statement on community solidarity. Also starring Fabrizio Rongione (The Kid With a Bike, Rosetta). (Fully subtitled)

Still Alice
(PG13)   105  minutes
2/27 - 3/5: 1:05  3:45  6:35  8:55

Best Actress nominee Julianne Moore (Far From Heaven, The Hours, The End of the Affair, Boogie Nights) gives a terrific, heartbreaking and unforgettable performance as Alice Howland, a renowned linguistics professor, happily married with three adult children. In the words of her husband John (Alec Baldwin), she's the most beautiful and most intelligent woman he's ever known. But Alice finds herself forgetting words—her stock in trade. Frightened, she consults her doctor, and receives a devastating diagnosis: early onset Alzheimer's disease. Her loving family tries to support her, but finds their bonds thoroughly tested. Her children, Anna (Kate Bosworth), Tom (Hunter Parrish) and Lydia (Kristen Stewart) each meet the crisis in their own way. Lydia, an aspiring actress, has been at odds with her mother over her own future, and tries to mend the breach before it is too late. Alice's struggle to stay connected to who she once was is frightening, poignant, and inspiring. Told with a quiet restraint that is more powerful than sentimental melodrama, Still Alice will touch your heart.

Mr. Turner
(R)   140  minutes
2/27 - 3/5: 1:00  4:25  7:30

Celebrated director Mike Leigh (Secrets and Lies, Happy-Go-Lucky) returns to period drama which he mined so successfully in Topsy-Turvy, to create an epic biography of the brilliant English painter J.M.W. Turner (Timothy Spall). Veteran actor Spall, who appeared in the Harry Potter movies and played Churchill in The King’s Speech, won the Best Actor award at the Cannes Film Festival for his performance as the quirky outsider who was a master artist. The film covers the last half of his life, from the height of his success in the 1830s to his death in 1851. Turner, a magician with light and considered a forerunner of the Impressionists, was completely obsessed with his art. But his personal life was a mess. He sometimes slept with his fond housekeeper (Dorothy Atkinson), but still treated her as a servant; he ignored his grasping ex-mistress (Ruth Sheen), who had borne him two daughters. Eventually he fell in love with his seaside landlady (Marion Bailey) and lived with her incognito. A constant traveler in search of new sights to paint, he enjoyed the hospitality of the landed aristocracy, visited brothels and was a popular but anarchic member of the Royal Academy of Arts. He once had himself tied to the mast of a ship in bad weather in order to paint a snowstorm.  Nominated for 4 Academy Awards, including Best Cinematography (Dick Pope, who seems to capture Turner’s genius with glowing images).

MPAA Rating: R for some sexual content


American Sniper
(R)   150  minutes
2/27 - 3/5: 3:25  8:50

U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle is sent to Iraq with only one mission: to protect his brothers-in-arms. His pinpoint accuracy saves countless lives on the battlefield and, as stories of his courageous exploits spread, he earns the nickname “Legend.” However, his reputation is also growing behind enemy lines, putting a price on his head and making him a prime target of insurgents. He is also facing a different kind of battle on the home front: striving to be a good husband and father from halfway around the world. Despite the danger, as well as the toll on his family at home, Chris serves through four harrowing tours of duty in Iraq, personifying the spirit of the SEAL creed to “leave no one behind.” But upon returning to his wife, Taya Renae Kyle (Sienna Miller), and kids, Chris finds that it is the war he can’t leave behind.

MPAA Rating: R for strong and disturbing war violence, and language throughout including some sexual references


The Imitation Game
(PG13)   120  minutes
2/27 - 3/5: 12:50  *6:25 * No 6:25 Thurs 3/5

The Imitation Game is a dramatic portrayal of the life and work of one of Britain's most extraordinary unsung heroes, Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch, The Fifth Estate, Star Trek Into Darkness, TV’s "Sherlock"). Leading a motley crew of scholars, linguists, chess champions and intelligence officers, the loner mathematical genius was instrumental in cracking the code for Germany’s World War II Enigma Machine, a seemingly impossible code that changed daily, and in the process became a pioneer of modern-day computing. Keira Knightley co-stars as a supportive friend on the code-breaking team who tries (but fails) to help him lead a more normal social life. Intercut with the life-and-death struggle to break the code are scenes from Turing’s past, as an outcast at boarding school befriended by an older boy, and of the future and his disastrous encounter with the police in 1952, charged with the crime of homosexuality. An intense and haunting portrayal of a brilliant, complicated man, The Imitation Game follows a genius who under nail-biting pressure helped to shorten the war and, in turn, save thousands of lives. Also starring Charles Dance, Mark Strong and Matthew Goode. Directed by Morten Tyldum (Headhunters).

 MPAA Rating: PG13 for some sexual references, mature thematic material and historical smoking
