Free State of Jones
(R
)   140 minutes



Free State of Jones is an epic action-drama set during the Civil War, and tells the story of defiant Southern farmer Newt Knight (Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey, Dallas Buyers Club) and his extraordinary armed rebellion against the Confederacy. Banding together with other small farmers and local slaves, Knight launched an uprising that led Jones County, Mississippi to secede from the Confederacy, creating a Free State of Jones. Knight continued his struggle into Reconstruction, distinguishing him as a compelling, if controversial, figure of defiance long beyond the war. Also starring Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Keri Russell and Mahershala Ali, Free State of Jones is directed and co-written by Gary Ross (The Hunger Games, Seabiscuit, writer/director of Pleasantville).

MPAA Rating: R for brutal battle scenes and disturbing graphic images

Weiner
(R
)   110 minutes



Sexts, lies and Carlos Danger: watch the wildest political meltdown in recent history as it unfolds. It’s 2013 and Anthony Weiner—still reeling from the sex scandal that ended his political career two years earlier—is back in the spotlight as he mounts an audacious comeback campaign for New York City mayor. But it’s not long before history repeats itself and new sexting allegations leave Weiner and his aides scrambling to contain the damage. Granted unfettered access to the candidate and his campaign, filmmakers Josh Kriegman and Elyse Steinberg capture a jaw-dropping, behind-the-scenes documentary look at the political machine as it breaks down.

In doing so she attracts the simultaneous attentions of the young, handsome Reginald DeCourcy, the rich and silly Sir James Martin and the divinely handsome, but married, Lord Manwaring, complicating matters severely. After a series of dramatic turns at Churchill, Lady Susan finally risks destruction when her jealous rival, Lady Lucy Manwaring (Jenn Murray), arrives in London to make a shocking revelation, leading to the denouement of denouements.
