Only Lovers Left Alive is the best film in years by writer/director Jim Jarmusch (Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai, Mystery Train, Down By Law). Stylish, hip and droll, it's the nocturnal tale of two vampires in love, and their quest for amusement and an untainted supply of blood. Tom Hiddleston (Loki in Marvel's The Avengers and the Thor films) and the ageless Tilda Swinton (I Am Love, Michael Clayton) play Adam and Eve, vampires who have been lovers for centuries. He's a reclusive underground musician hiding out in the ruins of Detroit; she's a lover of knowledge residing in Tangier—but they're soulmates. Adam's music is eagerly received by the zombies (i.e. humans) such as rock promoter Ian (Anton Yelchin, Star Trek), whose adulation threatens his need for solitude. Sensing Adam's growing angst and despair, Eve makes a transatlantic journey to see him, despite the difficulties of travelling by day. Their joyful reunion is interrupted by the uninvited arrival of Eve's carefree and uncontrollable little sister Ava (Mia Wasikowska, Alice in Wonderland, The Kids Are All Right), who brings trouble in her wake. Driven by sensual photography, trance-like music by Jarmusch's band Squrl, and sly humor, Only Lovers Left Alive is a hypnotic meditation on art, science, memory, and the mysteries of everlasting love. With John Hurt and Jeffrey Wright. Official Web Site

in English-Dubbed & English-Subtitled Versions!

In acclaimed animator Hayao Miyazaki's The Wind Rises, Jiro (voice of Joseph Gordon-Levitt)—inspired by the famous Italian aeronautical designer Caproni—dreams of flying and designing beautiful airplanes. Nearsighted from a young age and unable to be a pilot, Jiro joins a major Japanese engineering company in 1927 and becomes one of the world's most innovative and accomplished airplane designers. The film chronicles much of his life, depicting key historical events, including the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923, the Great Depression, the tuberculosis epidemic and Japan's plunge into war. Jiro meets and falls in love with Naoko (Emily Blunt), and grows and cherishes his friendship with his colleague Honjo (John Krasinski). Writer/director Miyazaki pays tribute to engineer Jiro Horikoshi and author Tatsuo Hori in this epic tale of love, perseverance, and the challenges of living and making choices in a turbulent world. The English-language cast also includes Elijah Wood, Stanley Tucci, Jennifer Grey, William H. Macy and Werner Herzog. Academy Award nominee for Best Animated Feature. Official Web Site

The dysfunctional Tenenbaums are a New York family of former child prodigies who are now neurotic adults. The children are Chas (Ben Stiller), Margot (Gwyneth Paltrow) and Richie (Luke Wilson). The family patriarch, Royal (Gene Hackman) is a bit of a rogue, so his children and ex-wife Etheline (Anjelica Huston) blame him for all of their misfortunes. Poverty, old age and loneliness compel Royal to make things right with his estranged family and the movie follows his attempts to win them back. The third feature from director Wes Anderson (The Grand Budapest Hotel, Moonrise Kingdom, Fantastic Mr. Fox), who co-wrote the screenplay with actor Owen Wilson (featured in a small role).

Belle is inspired by the true story of Dido Elizabeth Belle (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), the illegitimate mixed race daughter of Admiral Sir John Lindsay (Matthew Goode). Raised by her aristocratic great-uncle Lord Mansfield (Tom Wilkinson) and his wife (Emily Watson), Belle's lineage affords her certain privileges, yet her status prevents her from the traditions of noble social standing. While her cousin Elizabeth (Sarah Gadon) chases suitors for marriage, Belle is left on the sidelines wondering if she will ever find love. After meeting an idealistic young vicar's son bent on changing society, he and Belle help shape Lord Mansfield's role as Lord Chief Justice to end slavery in England. Official Web Site


Saturday, May 3 'Round Midnight!

The Room is an electrifying American black comedy about love, passion, betrayal and lies, starring writer/director Tommy Wiseau as a successful banker with a great respect for—and dedication to—the people in his life, especially his future wife Lisa (Juliette Danielle). As the film depicts friendships and relationships in the lives of its five major characters, it raises life's real and most-asked question: "Can you really trust anyone?" A midnight cult sensation, this quirky black comedy has been running for over 10 years in Los Angeles and has now taken the rest of the country by storm. You'll want to be there for the devastation it will leave in its wake! Official Web Site
