I don't often step up and offer personal thoughts on new openings. After all, we are opening several films every week, and we love all our children equally. Also, those of you who have spotted me at the theatre (after ONLY IN THEATERS, I've sacrificed any anonymity I might have enjoyed) know that sometimes I'm catching up on films together with you at regular screenings.

You can watch the whole thing online, but here's the key excerpt:*"This literally has been my singular goal as a filmmaker for the past 30 years. So I’m not really sure what I’m gonna do with the rest of my life, but I do know that I will continue to fight for cinema

Directed and co-written by four-time Academy Award® nominee Ethan Hawke, Wildcat invites the audience to weave in and out of celebrated Southern Gothic writer Flannery O’Connor's mind as she ponders the great questions of her writing: Can scandalous art still serve God? Does suffering precede all greatness? Can illness be a blessing? In 1950, Flannery (Maya Hawke) visits her mother Regina (Laura Linney) in Georgia when she is diagnosed with lupus at twenty-four years old. Struggling with the same disease that took her father’s life when she was a child and desperate to make her mark as a great writer, this crisis pitches her imagination into a
