A chronicle of James Brown's rise from extreme poverty to become one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century.  Starring Chadwick Boseman (Jackie Robinson in 42) as the "Godfather of Soul," Get On Up also features Octavia Spencer, Viola Davis, and Dan Aykroyd. Directed by Tate Taylor, whose previous work includes The Help.  Writing in Time, Richard Corliss says "In 2007, Jamie Foxx won Best Actor for his subtle performance as Ray Charles.  Boseman exceeds that solid standard. Incarnating James Brown in all his ornery uniqueness, he deserves a Pulitzer, a Nobel and instant election to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame."  David Denby of The New Yorker notes that "This movie will never need reviving. Browní innovative rhythms will always make his music sound contemporary."

After many years of estrangement, twins Maggie and Milo lead separate lives on opposite sides of the country. When both feel that they're at the end of their ropes, an unexpected reunion forces them to confront how their lives went so wrong. For Maggie, that means re-examining her marriage to sweet "nature frat boy" Lance and her own self destructive tendencies, while Milo must face the pain of an early heartbreak he never quite got past. As the twins' reunion reinvigorates them both, they realize the key to fixing their lives just may lie in accepting the past and mending their relationship with each other. Stars Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, and Luke Wilson

Itís the summer of 1984. Margaret Thatcher is in power and the   National Union of Mineworkers is on strike, prompting a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists to raise money to support the strikersí families. Initially rebuffed by the Union, the group    identifies a tiny mining village in Wales and sets off to make their donation in person. As the strike drags on, the two groups discover that standing together makes for the strongest union of all. Directed by Matthew Warchus and starring Dominick West, Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton and Paddy Considine, Pride has already been compared to other terrific British working class films like The Full Monty and Billy Elliott.  Stephen Holden of the New York Times says that Pride "is the kind of hearty, blunt-force drama with softened edges that leaves audiences applauding and teary-eyed."  Dave Calhoun of Time Out London writes that "Itís a joyous film, full of love and warmth but unafraid to admit that with sticking out your neck comes struggle and sorrow. Truly lovely."
