AFFAIRS OF STATE
2018, Lionsgate, 97 min, USA, Dir: Eric Bross

In his quest for power, D.C. aide Michael Lawson (David Corenswet) will do anything to take part in Senator Baines’s (David James Elliott) White House campaign, including blackmailing Baines’s shady advisor (Adrian Grenier, TV’s “Entourage”) and sleeping with the candidate’s wife (Mimi Rogers). But when he gets involved with the senator’s alluring daughter, Lawson learns his dangerous game could have a deadly payoff. Also starring Thora Birch (PATRIOT GAMES), this pulse-pounding thriller is a perfect match for today’s turbulent political climate.


DESPERATE HOURS
1990, Park Circus/MGM, 105 min, Dir: Michael Cimino

Bristling with energy, director Michael Cimino and producer Dino De Laurentiis’ remake of the 1955 crime drama stars Mickey Rourke as Michael Bosworth, a psychotic criminal who uses his lawyer to escape while on trial. With two associates, Bosworth invades the home of Tim and Nora Cornell (Anthony Hopkins and Mimi Rogers), holding them and their kids hostage while they hide out for a few hours. Rourke’s and Hopkins’ full-throttle performances are matched by that of Lindsay Crouse as the FBI agent in pursuit.
