lucky1 350LUCKY follows the spiritual journey of a 90-year-old atheist and the quirky characters that inhabit his off the map desert town. Having out lived and out smoked all of his contemporaries, the fiercely independent Lucky finds himself at the precipice of life, thrust into a journey of self exploration, leading towards that which is so often unattainable: enlightenment. Acclaimed character actor John Carroll Lynch's directorial debut "Lucky", is at once a love letter to the life and career of Harry Dean Stanton as well as a meditation on morality, loneliness, spirituality, and human connection.

ChurchillTensions mount for the beleaguered British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Brian Cox) in the days leading up to infamous Allied D-Day landings in Normandy, France in June, 1944. Fearful of repeating his deadly mistakes from World War I in the Battle of Gallipoli, exhausted by years of war, plagued by depression and obsessed with his historical destiny, Churchill is reluctant to embark on the large-scale campaign, one that the entire war effort hinges upon. Clashing with his Allied political opponents U.S. General Dwight D. Eisenhower (John Slattery) and British Field Marshal Bernard Law Montgomery (Julian Wadham), the troubled Churchill receives support and devotion from his wife, the brilliant and unflappable Clementine Churchill (Miranda Richardson). With her strength and shrewdness, "Clemmie" halts Winston's physical, mental spiritual collapse and inspires him on to greatness.

Leads:  Brian Cox, Miranda Richardson, John Slattery, Ella Purnell, James Purefoy

Sense of an endingTony Webster's life of habit and routine is upturned by a solicitor's letter which awakens a troubling incident from the past involving his first love.
Incidents are placed like jigsaw pieces in this well-crafted story that emerges with the ghosts of a romance from decades ago, turning up again to haunt the present. The actors turn in performances that fit the characters and their quirks as they were originally conceived on the page. Comparisons are inevitable, and readers will be pleased that the movie does credit to its origins as an award winning novel. It all makes sense in the end.

Leads:  Jim Broadbent, Charlotte Rampling, Harriet Walter, Michelle Dockery, Emily Mortimer

Run Time: 108Min  Rating: PG-13
