The Imitation Game is a dramatic portrayal of the life and work of one of Britain's most extraordinary unsung heroes, Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch, The Fifth Estate, Star Trek Into Darkness, TV’s "Sherlock"). Leading a motley crew of scholars, linguists, chess champions and intelligence officers, the loner mathematical genius was instrumental in cracking the code for Germany’s World War II Enigma Machine, a seemingly impossible code that changed daily, and in the process became a pioneer of modern-day computing. Keira Knightley co-stars as a supportive friend on the code-breaking team who tries (but fails) to help him lead a more normal social life. Intercut with the life-and-death struggle to break the code are scenes from Turing’s past, as an outcast at boarding school befriended by an older boy, and of the future and his disastrous encounter with the police in 1952, charged with the crime of homosexuality. An intense and haunting portrayal of a brilliant, complicated man, The Imitation Game follows a genius who under nail-biting pressure helped to shorten the war and, in turn, save thousands of lives. Also starring Charles Dance, Mark Strong and Matthew Goode. Directed by Morten Tyldum (Headhunters). Official Web Site

Strange things are afoot in Bad City, the Iranian ghost town, home to prostitutes, pimps and other sordid souls. A lonely and alluring female vampire (Sheila Vand) stalks the town's most unsavory inhabitants. Her path also crosses that of a hunky, perhaps honest guy, and an unusual love story begins to blossom... blood red. Cinema's first Iranian Vampire Western basks in the pleasure of pulp, a joyful mashup of genre, archetype and iconography spanning spaghetti westerns and comic books, and amped by an electric soundtrack mixed with Iranian rock, techno and Ennio Morricone-inspired riffs. If Sergio Leone and David Lynch had an Iranian rock 'n' roll baby, and then Nosferatu came and babysat for them.... Written and directed by Ana Lily Amirpour. Official Web Site

Based on true events, Foxcatcher tells the dark and fascinating story of the unlikely and ultimately tragic relationship between an eccentric multi-millionaire and two champion wrestlers. When Olympic Gold Medal-winning wrestler Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) is invited by wealthy heir John du Pont (Steve Carell) to move onto the du Pont estate and help form a team to train for the 1988 Seoul Olympics at his new state-of-the-art training facility, Schultz jumps at the opportunity, hoping to focus on his training and finally step out of the shadow of his revered brother, Dave (Mark Ruffalo), also an Olympic Gold Medal winner. Driven by hidden needs, du Pont sees backing Mark's bid for Gold and the chance to "coach" a world-class wrestling team as an opportunity to gain the elusive respect of his peers and, more importantly, his disapproving mother (Vanessa Redgrave). Fueled by du Pont's increasing paranoia and alienation from the brothers, the trio is propelled towards a tragedy no one could have foreseen. Foxcatcher is a rich and moving story of brotherly love, misguided loyalty and the corruption and emotional bankruptcy that can accompany great power and wealth. Academy Award nominee Bennett Miller (Capote, Moneyball) once again explores large themes in society through his complex character portraits of real people. Winner of the Best Director award at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival. Official Web Site

The Theory of Everything tells the extraordinary story of one of the world's greatest living minds, the renowned astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, who falls deeply in love with fellow Cambridge student Jane Wilde. Once a healthy, active young man, Hawking (Eddie Redmayne, Les Misérables, My Week With Marilyn) received an earth-shattering diagnosis at 21 years of age. With Jane (Felicity Jones, Like Crazy, The Amazing Spider-Man 2) fighting tirelessly by his side, Stephen embarks on his most ambitious scientific work, studying the very thing he now has precious little of—time. Together, they defy impossible odds, breaking new ground in medicine and science, and achieving more than they could ever have dreamed. The film is based on the memoir "Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen," by Jane Hawking, and is directed by Academy Award winner James Marsh (Man on Wire). Official Web Site

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award at the Sundance Film Festival, the gripping drama Whiplash stars Miles Teller (The Spectacular Now) as Andrew Neiman, a 19-year-old jazz drummer determined to rise to the top of the country's most elite music conservatory. One night, Terence Fletcher (J.K. Simmons), a conductor equally known for his talent for teaching as he is for the terrifying method of his instruction, discovers Andrew practicing the drums, and the next day requests that he be transferred into his band. At first, Andrew is an "alternate," confined to turning the pages of the "core" drummer, but at the band's next competition, the core drummer's sheet music is misplaced and Andrew gets the opportunity to play. Though the act further alienates him from his fellow musicians, the band nonetheless wins the competition, and he seems poised to become Fletcher's new "favorite son." Andrew's maniacal effort to achieve perfection is further fueled by Fletcher's psychological brinksmanship. The nearer to perfection Andrew gets, the narrower his circle of intimates becomes until he is left only with Fletcher—and even that relationship is jeopardized by the ferocity of Andrew's ambitions. A journey that can be seen alternately as a descent into madness or an ascent to greatness comes to a crescendo on the biggest platform for Andrew's talents—the unforgiving stage of Carnegie Hall.

Jon Stewart, host and executive producer of "The Daily Show," makes a remarkable screenwriting and directing debut with Rosewater. It tells the story of Tehran-born Maziar Bahari (Gael García Bernal, The Motorcycle Diaries), a broadcast journalist with Canadian citizenship living in London, who left his pregnant wife (Claire Foy) in the UK and returned to Tehran to cover the controversial 2009 Presidential election. At great personal risk Bahari obtained and submitted camera footage to the BBC of the unfolding street riots that protested the election "results." Soon afterwards he was arrested by Revolutionary Guard police, led by a man identifying himself only as "Rosewater" (Kim Bodnia), who proceeded to torture and interrogate the journalist over the next 118 days. Meanwhile Bahari's wife led an international campaign from London to have her husband freed, and Western media outlets including "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" continued to keep the story alive. Based on Bahari's best-selling memoir Then They Came for Me: A Family's Story of Love, Captivity, and Survival. Official Web Site

She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry resurrects the buried history of the outrageous, often brilliant women who founded the modern women’s movement from 1966 to 1971. She’s Beautiful takes us from the founding of NOW (National Organization for Women), when ladies wore hats and gloves, to the emergence of more radical factions of women’s liberation; from intellectuals like Kate Millett to the street theatrics of WITCH (Women’s International Conspiracy from Hell!). Remarkably, there has never been a theatrical documentary about the astonishing early days of women’s liberation. She’s Beautiful aims not to romanticize the early movement, but to dramatize it in its exhilarating, quarrelsome, sometimes heart-wrenching glory. The film does not shy away from the controversies over race, sexual identity and leadership that arose in the women’s movement. It captures the spirit of the time—thrilling, scandalous and often hilarious. Featuring Rita Mae Brown, Susan Brownmiller, Ellen Willis, Eleanor Holmes Norton, Alix Kates Shulman and Fran Beal. Directed by Mary Dore (The Good Fight: The Abraham Lincoln Brigade). Official Web Site

The comedy-thriller Inherent Vice is the seventh feature from writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson (The Master, There Will Be Blood, Boogie Nights) and the first ever film adaption of a Thomas Pynchon novel. Doc Sportello (Joaquin Phoenix) is a private eye whose ex-old lady (Katherine Waterston) suddenly shows up with a story about her current billionaire boyfriend (who she happens to be in love with). She claims his wife and her boyfriend plan to kidnap the billionaire and throw him in a loony bin... and she needs Doc's help. It's the tail end of the psychedelic '60s and paranoia is running the day and Doc knows that "love" is another of those words going around at the moment, like "trip" or "groovy," that's being way too overused—except this one leads to trouble. With a cast of characters that includes surfers, hustlers, dopers and rockers, a murderous loan shark, LAPD Detectives, a tenor sax player working undercover, and a mysterious entity known as the Golden Fang, which may only be a tax dodge set up by some dentists, Inherent Vice is part surf noir, part psychedelic romp and all Thomas Pynchon!
