9/1 - 9/14

(NR) 1 Hr. 44 Min. (Digital) In English (Drama)

When a renowned architecture scholar falls suddenly ill during a speaking tour, his son Jin (John Cho) finds himself stranded in Columbus, Indiana - a small Midwestern city celebrated for its many significant modernist buildings. Jin strikes up a friendship with Casey (Haley Lu Richardson), a young architecture enthusiast who works at the local library. As their intimacy develops, Jin and Casey explore both the town and their conflicted emotions: Jin's estranged relationship with his father, and Casey's reluctance to leave Columbus and her mother. With its naturalistic rhythms and empathy for the complexities of families, debut director Kogonada's Columbus unfolds as a gently drifting, deeply absorbing conversation. With strong supporting turns from Parker Posey, Rory Culkin, and Michelle Forbes, Columbus is also a showcase for its director's striking eye for the way physical space can affect emotions.
“Columbus is a charming and beautiful indie debut.” ~ Entertainment Weekly
“Almost startling in how assured it is, synthesizing beautiful, controlled images with with story and character.” ~  Tribune News Service

Trip to Spain

(NR) 1 Hr. 55 Min. (Digital) In English (Art House & International, Comedy)

Fri. 9/8 - Thurs. 9/21

After jaunts through northern England and Italy, Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon embark on another deliciously deadpan culinary road trip. This time around, the guys head to Spain to sample the best of the country's gastronomic offerings in between rounds of their hilariously off-the-cuff banter. Over plates of pintxos and paella, the pair exchange barbs and their patented celebrity impressions, as well as more serious reflections on what it means to settle into middle age. As always, the localesare breathtaking, the cuisine to die for, and the humor delightfully devilish.

The Midwife

9/8 - 9/14

(NR) 1 Hr. 57 Min. (Digital) In French with English subtitles (Art House & International, Drama)

Two of French cinema's biggest stars shine in this bittersweet drama about the unlikely friendship that develops between Claire (Catherine Frot), a talented but tightly wound midwife, and Béatrice (Catherine Deneuve), the estranged, free-spirited mistress of Claire's late father. Though polar opposites in almost every way, the two come to rely on each other as they cope with the unusual circumstance that brought them together in this sharp character study from the César-award winning director Martin Provost (Séraphine).
“A closely observed, intelligently imagined and realized presentation of contrasting personalities.” ~ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
