Land Ho!
 Land Ho!
In the bawdy adventure comedy Land Ho!, Mitch (Earl Lynn Nelson) and Colin (Paul Eenhoorn) were close friends back when they were brothers-in-law married to two sisters, but they drifted apart as Mitch and his wife divorced and Colin's wife died. Now Mitch, a retired surgeon who can't quite admit to being retired, recruits a reluctant Colin on a holiday to Iceland—just the ticket to perk up a pair who have endured their share of disappointments but still have a spirit of adventure in them. As their rented SUV pilots them deeper into the Icelandic hinterlands, Colin and Mitch encounter fellow adventurers, get on each others' nerves, play movie trivia games, get lost on the moonless moors, grouse about their sons, smoke pot, speak of regrets, and marvel at Iceland's otherworldly beauty. For both men, aging, loneliness, and disenchantment are silent adversaries to be countered with gumption. (95 mins)

And So It Goes
 And So It Goes
There are a million reasons not to like realtor Oren Little (Michael Douglas), and that's just the way he likes it. Willfully obnoxious to anyone who might cross his path, he wants nothing more than to sell one last house and retire in peace and quiet—until his estranged son suddenly drops off a granddaughter (Sterling Jerins) he never knew existed and turns his life upside-down. Clueless about how to care for a sweet, abandoned nine-year-old, he pawns her off on his determined and lovable neighbor Leah (Diane Keaton) and tries to resume his life uninterrupted. But little by little, Oren stubbornly learns to open his heart —to his family, to Leah, and to life itself—in this uplifting comedy from acclaimed director Rob Reiner. (PG13, 94 mins)

Boyhood
 Boyhood
Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, the latest from writer/director Richard Linklater (whose last two films, Bernie and Before Midnight, were terrific) is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (a breakthrough performance by Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason's parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha, Boyhood charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before. Snapshots of adolescence, from road trips and family dinners to birthdays and graduations and all the moments in between, become transcendent, set to a soundtrack spanning the years, from Coldplay's “Yellow” to Arcade Fire's “Deep Blue.” Boyhood has been garnering some of the best reviews of the year; it’s both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting. It's impossible not to watch Mason and his family without thinking about our own journeys. (R, 166 mins)

The Kill Team
 The Kill Team
Wed, Sept 17 at 7:15pm "New Non-Fiction Film"

Filmmaker Dan Krauss investigates the ongoing story first revealed in a Rolling Stone expose titled “How U.S. Soldiers in Afghanistan Murdered Innocent Civilians”. Private Adam Winfield was a 21-year-old soldier in Afghanistan when he attempted with the help of his father to alert the military to heinous war crimes his platoon was committing. But Winfield’s pleas went unheeded. Left on his own and with threats to his life, Private Winfield was himself drawn into the moral abyss, forced to make a split-second decision that would change his life forever. Winner of The Grand Jury Prize at Tribeca Film Festival. (79 mins)

Special guest speaker: Kathy Kelly is a longtime peace activist in Iraq and Afghanistan and co-founder of Voices for Creative Nonviolence. She is a nationally renowned speaker and witness for peace.

Begin Again
 Begin Again
The latest film from writer/director John Carney (Once), Begin Again is a soul-stirring comedy about what happens when lost souls meet and make beautiful music together. Gretta (Keira Knightley) and her long-time boyfriend, Dave (Adam Levine), are college sweethearts and songwriting partners who decamp for New York when he lands a deal with a major label. But the trappings of his new-found fame soon tempt Dave to stray, and a reeling, lovelorn Gretta is left on her own. Her world takes a turn for the better when Dan (Mark Ruffalo), a disgraced record-label exec, stumbles upon her performing on an East Village stage and is immediately captivated by her raw talent. From this chance encounter emerges an enchanting portrait of a mutually transformative collaboration, set to the soundtrack of a summer in New York City. Also starring Hailee Steinfeld, James Corden, Catherine Keener and CeeLo Green. (R, 104 mins)

The Last of Robin Hood
 The Last of Robin Hood
Errol Flynn, the swashbuckling Hollywood star and notorious ladies man, flouted convention all his life, but never more brazenly than in his last years when, swimming in vodka and unwilling to face his mortality, he undertook a liaison with aspiring actress Beverly Aadland. The two had a high-flying affair that spanned the globe and was enabled by the girl's fame-obsessed mother, Florence. It all came crashing to an end in October 1959, when events forced the relationship into the open, sparking an avalanche of publicity castigating Beverly and her mother—which only fed Florence's need to stay in the spotlight. The Last of Robin Hood is a story about the desire for fame and the price it exacts. (R, 94 mins)

A Summer`s Tale
 A Summer`s Tale
The late New Wave auteur Eric Rohmer equated his films to novels — that's what auteur means, after all — and A Summer's Tale feels like a great beach read of a movie. The plot of this 1996 film, newly restored and in its first American theatrical release, seems quaintly simple: On a Brittany beach-town holiday, a moody math graduate student (Melvil Poupaud) waits to meet his girlfriend (Aurélia Nolin), meanwhile making a friend (Amanda Langlet) who wants to set him up with her friend (Gwenaëlle Simon). The ensuing complications play out as a perfectly minimal farce, with edges planed so smooth as to be almost invisible. In French with subtitles. (113 mins)

The Trouble with TQ
 The Trouble with TQ
An encore presentation about the late Reverend Thomas J. Quinlan (“TQ”) unfolds with the newly ordained TQ attacking apathy and spiritual complacency at his first parish with the renewal and reform of the Second Vatican Council. Over 40+ years as a priest in numerous parishes in Virginia, TQ refined his use of the Principle of Adaptation through symbolism, pop culture and history, giving parishes the tools to lead change in the community. Director Calvin Thomas will be in attendance. (70 mins)

The One I Love
 The One I Love
The highly anticipated debut feature from acclaimed author Charlie McDowell is an original tale that continues to showcase McDowell's keen observations of human relationships with a distinct and comedic voice. On the brink of separation, Ethan (Mark Duplass, Safety Not Guaranteed) and Sophie (Elisabeth Moss, “Mad Men”) escape to a beautiful vacation house for a weekend getaway in an attempt to save their marriage. What begins as a romantic and fun retreat soon takes a surreal turn when an unexpected discovery forces the two to examine themselves, their relationship and their future. (R, 91 mins)

"Boasting spectacular performances from Duplass and Elisabeth Moss as a husband and wife on the brink of separation, this incredibly assured directorial debut of Charlie McDowell essentially turns the idea of a two-hander upside down and inside out."
– Geoff Berkshire, Variety

Gore Vidal: The United States of Amnesia
 Gore Vidal: The United States of Amnesia
Wed, Sept 24 at 7:15pm "New Non-Fiction Film"

No twentieth-century figure has had a more profound effect on the worlds of literature, film, politics, historical debate and the culture wars than Gore Vidal. Anchored by intimate one-on-one interviews with the man himself, Nicholas Wrathall’s new documentary is a fascinating and wholly entertaining portrait of the last lion of the age of American liberalism. Commentary by those who knew him best—including filmmaker/nephew Burr Steers and the late Christopher Hitchens—blends with footage from Vidal’s legendary on-air career to remind us why he will forever stand as one of the most brilliant and fearless critics of our time. Featuring candid vérité footage of Vidal in his final years, the film explores his enduring global impact on art, politics, and everything in between. His overview of the current state of the Republic and the health of US democracy is unique and incisive. This is Gore Vidal’s last word and testimony. (90 mins)

Post-Film speaker and discussion:
Angelo Mesisco is an artist, activist, business owner, and a Gore Vidal enthusiast.
