ABOVE AND BEYOND Q&A's at the Royal and Town Center 5 with Producer Nancy Spielberg

In 1948, a group of World War II pilots volunteered to fight for Israel in the War of Independence. As members of 'Machal' -- volunteers from abroad -- this ragtag band of brothers not only turned the tide of the war, preventing the possible annihilation of Israel at the very moment of its birth; they also laid the groundwork for the Israeli Air Force. ABOVE AND BEYOND is their story. The first major feature-length documentary about the foreign airmen in the War of Independence, ABOVE AND BEYOND brings together new interviews with pilots from the '48 War, as well as leading scholars and statesmen, including Shimon Peres, to present an extraor [...]

Palme d’Or Winner WINTER SLEEP Opens January 23

Internationally acclaimed Turkish filmmaker Nuri Bilge Ceylan has won prizes at major film festivals all over the world, but it wasn't until last May, after being nominated four times, that he finally took home what is probably the topmost prize of all, the Cannes Film Festival's Palme d'Or. It was for WINTER SLEEP, a "richly engrossing and ravishingly beautiful magnum opus" about Aydin, a former actor who runs a small hotel in central Anatolia with his young wife Nihal and his sister Necla, who is recovering from her recent divorce.

"Enthralling, Gorgeously Mounted" BELOVED SISTERS Opens at the Royal, Playhouse and Town Center

This year Germany submitted BELOVED SISTERS as their potential nominee for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar, and one can see why. Scott Foundas of Variety, a smart, tough critic, called the movie “an enthralling, gorgeously mounted depiction of the complicated relationship between the post-Enlightenment writer and philosopher Friedrich Schiller and the sisters Charlotte von Lengefeld and Caroline von Beulwitz. Graf has created an unusually intelligent costume drama of bold personalities torn between the stirrings of the heart and the logic of the mind.” We are very pleased to open the film tomorrow at the Royal, Playhouse and Town Center.

New York Times: "Respect and Awards, but Still No Oscar: The Dardennes Brothers Discuss TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT"

We could not be more thrilled to open Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne's latest movie, TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT, January 9 at the Royal and January 16 and the Playhouse and Town Center. The Belgian brothers behind L'Enfant and The Kid with a Bike recently spoke with Larry Rohter of the New York Times about their new film, which for the first time features a genuine movie star, Marion Cotillard: Another Oscar season, another snub for the Dardenne brothers. Their “Two Days, One Night,” Belgium’s submission for the Academy Award for best foreign­ language film, won various festival and critics’ awards, as well as a European Film Award this month for M [...]
