These new additions to our film collection are worth a look.
Matthew is a widowed, world-weary professor living alone in Paris. He sees no meaningful future for himself until he meets Pauline (Harry Potter's Fleur Delacour - Clemence Poesy), a free-spirited young dance instructor. From their first meeting, each provides what the other needs: someone to call family. Even as they both struggle to heal the wounds of their troubled pasts, including Matthew's attempts to reconnect with his estranged children, the bond they form leads them to rediscover the joy that only family and true friendship can offer.
Love Streams: The Criterion Collection
Two closely bound, emotionally wounded siblings reunite after years apart. Based on the play "My sister's keeper" by Ted Allan. "There's an exhileration in this roller-coaster ride through scenes that come out of nowhere." -Roger Ebert
Veteran narcotics detective Eugene "Mack" McCanick (Morse) tracks a young ex-con named Simon Weeks (Monteith), who knows the dark truth about the cop's past. To everyone but McCanick, it appears that Weeks has paid his debt to society. This is Glee star Cory Monteith's last on screen performance.
Me & Orson Welles
From Richard Linklater, director of this summer's indie hit Boyhood. High schooler Richard Samuels lucks into a role in a daring Broadway production of Julius Caesar. Cues, staging, rehearsals, romance, rivalries: he has a lot to learn. And the first thing to learn is never to upstage Mercury Theatre's genius director, 22-year-old Orson Welles. "One of the best pictures about the stage." -New York Post
