CAPTAIN FANTASTIC
2016, Bleecker Street Media, 118 min, USA, Dir: Matt Ross

Director Matt Ross picked up the Un Certain Regard prize at Cannes for this insightful look at a family living off the grid. Ben Cash (Viggo Mortensen) has raised his six kids in the forests of the Pacific Northwest, homeschooling them with an exacting and exhilarating curriculum. But the death of his wife forces him into the outside world, where his idea of what it means to be a good parent comes under fire. “Viggo Mortensen is at the top of his game in this family dramedy, shot through with humor and heart.” - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone


TRUMBO
2015, Bleecker Street Media, 124 min, USA, Dir: Jay Roach

Screenwriter Dalton Trumbo earned Oscars for ROMAN HOLIDAY and THE BRAVE ONE, but his name didn’t appear in the films’ credits – he’d been blacklisted in 1947. Bryan Cranston (of TV’s “Breaking Bad”) stars in this sharp-eyed and entertaining look at one of Hollywood history’s darker chapters, leading a great cast that also includes Diane Lane, Elle Fanning, Helen Mirren, John Goodman and Louis C.K.
