BEAUTIFUL BOY
2018, Amazon Studios, 120 min, USA, Dir: Felix Van Groeningen

Belgian director Felix Van Groeningen’s (THE BROKEN CIRCLE BREAKDOWN) moving drama is based on the memoirs Beautiful Boy by David Sheff and Tweak by his son, Nic Sheff, offering two points of view on the heartbreaking and inspiring experience of survival and recovery in a family coping with addiction over many years. As father and son, Steve Carell and Timothée Chalamet lead an outstanding cast that includes Maura Tierney and Amy Ryan. “Scrupulous and tenderly wounding - a drama that seizes and holds you. It’s a compelling movie whether or not it happens to speak to you personally, yet you can bet that a lot of people who have stood by and watched members of their families succumb to drug addiction are going to want to see it.” - Owen Gleiberman, Variety.


RAW
GRAVE
2016, Focus World, 98 min, Dir: Julia Ducournau

First-year student Justine (Garance Marillier) quickly learns that veterinary school is not what she had envisioned; an animal-loving vegan, she is persistently hazed by older students, including her sister (Ella Rumpf). After being forced to eat raw meat, Justine descends into a dizzying metamorphosis that channels the body horror of Cronenberg and psychological distortion of Polanski in equal measure and with stunning results. “Picture CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST as an emotionally driven coming-of-age movie … Cleverly written, impressively made and incredibly gory.” - Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter. In French with English subtitles.


BELGICA
2016, Kinepolis Film, 127 min, Belgium, Dir: Felix Van Groeningen

Director Felix Van Groeningen’s follow-up to THE BROKEN CIRCLE BREAKDOWN is this tumultuous tale of sibling rivalry. Two brothers (Stef Aerts and Tom Vermeir) who have nothing in common open a bar that quickly becomes a regular hangout for nighthawks - but their newfound success doesn’t make running a family business any less complicated. Illuminated by vibrant nightlife sequences, BELGICA won the World Cinema – Dramatic directing award at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival. In Dutch with English subtitles.
