Adventure | Drama | Sci Fi  144 min.  PG-13.  2015

Director: Ridley Scott

Starring: Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Jeff Daniels, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Peña, Kate Mara, Donald Glover

During a manned mission to Mars, astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive. Millions of miles away, NASA and a team of international scientists work tirelessly to bring “the Martian” home, while his crewmates concurrently plot a daring, if not impossible rescue mission. As these stories of incredible bravery unfold, the world comes together to root for Watney’s safe return. Based on Andy Weir’s best-selling novel, and directed by Ridley Scott (Blade Runner, Alien), this gripping sci-fi adventure also stars Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Kate Mara, Michael Peña, Jeff Daniels, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Donald Glover.

What’s so fascinating about the film is that it truly turns on the solving of problems, and its chief solver, stuck on Mars, manages to be so funny, interesting and infallibly likable that you’re invested in his predicament at every moment.—Wall Street Journal

It takes a genuine master craftsman to take something as complex and difficult as this and make it look easy, but it also takes an artist with a great ear to take something as dense with exposition as this is and make it practically sing.—Hitflix

Ridley Scott’s The Martian is a brainy blockbuster, melding genuine science and fiction into a rare popcorn epic that actually makes you feel smarter for watching.—Tampa Bay Times

You can argue that the plot of The Martian doesn’t offer many surprises, but this is a movie of innumerable delightful moments and small discoveries, and even more of infectious enthusiasm.—

Drama 120 min. R 2015

Director: Oren Moverman

With:  Richard Gere, Ben Vereen, Jena Malone 

George (Richard Gere) is a man struggling to find food and a place to sleep in New York City. Shuffled into the unforgiving bureaucracy of a men’s shelter, George seems destined to wind up as just another lost soul swallowed up by the system—until he meets a gregarious, down-and-out ex-jazzman (Ben Vereen) who inspires George to reconnect with his estranged daughter (Jena Malone).

“Gere, who has shockingly never been nominated for an Oscar, gives the performance of his career, intuitive and indelible.”—Peter Travers, 

Rolling Stone

“Richard Gere goes slumming in the streets of Manhattan and emerges with one of his more remarkable performances in Time Out of Mind, a haunting piece of urban poetry that further confirms Oren Moverman (The Messenger, Rampart) as a socially conscious filmmaker of rare conviction and authority … This simple story of a vagrant slowly grasping the depths of his despair is New York neorealism par excellence … The homeless man who’s onscreen for almost every minute is George Hammond (Gere) … [constantly] in search of his next meal and place to sleep. …”—Justin Chang, Variety.

“It certainly is possible that Gere’s memorable performance as George – one that is far more physical than verbal, and that pushes the star’s legendary charm in unexpected directions – will put him in line for his first Oscar nod. George is never a cliché of homelessness, and neither the actor nor the film ever makes the expected or automatic choices.”—Andrew O’Hehir,

Drama | History  106 min. PG-13.  2015

Director: Sarah Gavron

Starring: Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter, Meryl Streep, Brendan Gleeson, Anne-Marie Duff, Ben Whishaw, Romola Garai, Natalie Press

Inspired by true events, Suffragette movingly explores the passion and heartbreak of those who risked all they had for women’s right to vote—their jobs, their homes, their children and even their lives. Carey Mulligan (An Education) and Helena Bonham Carter (The King’s Speech), and three-time Academy Award winner Meryl Streep (The Iron Lady, Sophie’s Choice, Kramer vs. Kramer), lead the cast of this powerful drama about the fight for equality in early-20th-century Britain. The stirring story centers on Maud (Mulligan), a working wife and mother who becomes an activist for the Suffragette cause alongside women from all walks of life.

The women’s movements are routinely and depressingly ignored by the movies. But Suffragette isn’t just a dutiful corrective, a lid to cover up a gap, but a necessarily distressing exploration of how much a political vanguard will push and endure to set things right — and how fiercely and eagerly a society that’s resistant to change will punish them for it.—The Wrap

It’s written, shot and acted with a hot-blooded urgency that reminds you the struggle it depicts is an ongoing one – and which shakes up this most well-behaved of genres with a surge of civil disobedience.—The Telegraph

Writer Abi Morgan (‘Shame’, ‘The Iron Lady’) and director Sarah Gavron’s (‘Brick Lane’) tough, raw, bleak-looking film makes the suffragettes’ dilemma feel immediate and real.—Time Out London

The surprise of Suffragette is how much anger and urgency it contains, and how much new material it unearths.—The Hollywood Reporter
