Who is Vivian Maier? Now considered one of the 20th century's greatest street photographers, Vivian Maier was a loner who worked as a nanny most of her life, and shot photos constantly everywhere she went, taking over 100,000 photographs that went unseen during her lifetime. Amateur historian John Maloof bought the contents of her storage locker by chance at an auction, and soon became obsessed with trying to learn more about the mysterious recluse. The first trace he was able to find of her was her recent obituary. Since then Maloof has organized many acclaimed exhibits of her work, and is crusading to put this prolific photographer into the history books. In Finding Vivian Maier, Maloof and co-director Charlie Siskel's captivating documentary, Maier's strange and riveting life and art are revealed through never-before-seen photographs, films, and interviews with dozens who thought they knew her.

Academy Award winner Jim Broadbent (Iris) and Lindsay Duncan (Mansfield Park) give exquisite performances as Nick and Meg, a long-married British couple revisiting Paris for the first time since their honeymoon in an attempt to rekindle their relationship. During a two-day escapade, diffident, wistful Nick and demanding, take-charge Meg careen from harmony to disharmony to resignation and back again as they take stock of half a lifetime of deep tenderness—and even deeper regret. A surprise invitation from Nick's old friend Morgan (Jeff Goldblum), an amusingly boorish American academic with a fancy Parisian address, soon leads them to an unexpectedly hopeful vision of what their love and marriage might still become. This magically buoyant, bittersweet comedy-drama is a new peak in the ongoing collaboration between Notting Hill director Roger Michell and screenwriter Hanif Kureishi (Venus, The Mother).

Alain Resnais' legendary arthouse sensation returns! As ominous organ music resounds, the Scope camera tracks through the seemingly endless halls of a baroque grand hotel—alternately thronged with tuxedoes and gowns or echoingly deserted—as Giorgio Albertazzi tries to persuade an initially disbelieving Delphine Seyrig (in her feature debut) that they'd met the year before, even as the sepulchral Sacha Pitoëff (her husband?) hovers about. But as Albertazzi continues to repeat "Last year…," each encounter takes place in different locations, in different costumes. With dizzying time shifts and flashbacks, real or imagined, Marienbad is considered the ultimate puzzle film. Winner of the Venice Film Festival's 1961 Golden Lion. Official Web Site

Multi-talented Steve Coogan (The Trip), nominated for an Academy Award for co-writing Philomena in which he also stars, is one of the funniest men around. Over the past twenty years he has been honing the cringe-worthy persona of smarmy egomaniacal radio host Alan Partridge on BBC-TV. Now, in Alan's long-awaited feature film debut, mayhem and hijinks abound. Alan's tottering radio station is taken over by a giant corporation who plan to make lots of changes, such as laying off many of the staff, including Alan's best friend Pat (Colm Meaney), who goes ballistic and takes over the station at gunpoint, creating a hostage standoff that Alan ineptly tries to exploit for self-promotion, mediating between Pat and the crowd of police surrounding the station. With an able screenwriting assist from Armando Iannucci (In the Loop); directed by Declan Lowney. Official Web Site
