Filmed on location in a ravishing Paris of quiet back streets and familiar locales, My Old Lady is a touching romantic drama about inheritance and past secrets coming home to roost. Mathias Gold (Kevin Kline) is a down-on-his-luck New Yorker who inherits a Parisian apartment from his estranged father. But when he arrives in France to sell the vast domicile, he's shocked to discover a live-in tenant. His apartment is a viager—an ancient French real estate system with complex rules pertaining to its resale—and the feisty Englishwoman Mathilde Girard (Maggie Smith, "Downton Abbey"), who has lived in the apartment with her daughter Chloé (Kristin Scott Thomas) for many years, is not prepared to budge. With no place to go, Mathias strikes a tentative lodging arrangement with Mathilde, instantly clashing with suspicious, lovelorn Chloé over his private dealings with a rapacious property developer. With its unique blend of comedy, drama and ultimately romance, My Old Lady marks the directorial debut of internationally celebrated playwright Israel Horovitz, adapting his own hit play.

Prospero, Duke of Milan (Roger Allam), usurped and exiled by his own brother, holds sway over an enchanted island. He is comforted by his daughter Miranda (Jessie Buckley) and served by his spirit Ariel (Colin Morgan) and the deformed slave Caliban (James Garnon). When Prospero raises a storm to wreck this perfidious brother and his confederates on the island, his long contemplated revenge at last seems within reach. Imbued with a spirit of magic and the supernatural, The Tempest, recorded live on stage earlier in 2014, is Shakespeare's late great masterpiece of forgiveness, generosity and enlightenment. Director Jeremy Herrin's previous work for Shakespeare's Globe includes 2011's much loved Much Ado About Nothing. Roger Allam won the Olivier Award for best actor for his role as Falstaff in Henry IV Parts 1 & 2 at the Globe in 2010. Colin Morgan is best known for playing Merlin in the long running BBC series "Merlin." Official Web Site

Furter, Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick as his hapless guests Brad and Janet, Meat Loaf as motorcycle-riding rough trade and author Richard O’Brien as the hunchbacked butler Riff Raff. It’s harmless musical fun—a delightful spoof of Hollywood horror movies and Old Dark House melodramas. The Rocky Horror Picture was the first—and is still the best—interactive movie experience!

Shapiro (Broadway's August: Osage County) and features Leighton Meester (Country Strong, "Gossip Girl") and Tony Award winner Jim Norton (The Seafarer).

In January 2013, filmmaker Laura Poitras was in the process of constructing a film about abuses of national security in post-9/11 America when she started receiving encrypted e-mails from someone identifying himself as "citizen four," who was ready to blow the whistle on the massive covert surveillance programs run by the NSA and other intelligence agencies. In June 2013, she and reporter Glenn Greenwald flew to Hong Kong for the first of many meetings with the man who turned out to be Edward Snowden. She brought her camera with her. The film that resulted from this series of tense encounters is absolutely sui generis in the history of cinema: a 100% real-life thriller unfolding minute by minute before our eyes. Poitras is a masterful storyteller: she compresses the many days of questioning, waiting, confirming, watching the world's reaction and agonizing over the next move, into both a great character study of Snowden and a narrative that will leave you on the edge of your seat as it inexorably moves toward its conclusion.
