Tracy (Lola Kirke) is a lonely college freshman in New York, having neither the exciting university experience nor the glamorous metropolitan lifestyle she envisioned. But when she is taken in by her soon-to-be stepsister, Brooke (Greta Gerwig) - a resident of Times Square and adventurous gal about town - she is rescued from her disappointment and seduced by Brooke's alluringly mad schemes. Directed by Noah Baumbach.  "Baumbach is clearly having a blast and, as usual, packing a sting into every line. Gerwig is the mistress of all things funny and fierce...” — Peter Travers, Rolling Stone. (Rated R, 86 min.)

A teenaged artist (Bel Powley) living in San Francisco during the '70s embarks on a love affair with the boyfriend (Alexander Skarsgard) of her mother (Kristen Wiig). With Christopher Meloni. Based on the book by Phoebe Gloeckner. Written for the screen and directed by Marielle Heller. A prize-winner at the Sundance and Berlin film festivals. "A strikingly intimate look at a teenager's sexual life in an outstanding debut film."—Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter. "THE DIARY OF A TEENAGE GIRL is a breakthrough moment in the culture in that it depicts youthful female sexuality... not just with the unapologetic frankness the boys usually get, but with an awareness of all the places a girl's urges will take her." — Ty Burr, The Boston Globe. (Rated R, 102 min.)

The true story of Captain Richard Phillips, an experienced seaman from New Hampshire, who was commander of the container ship Maersk Alabama when it was hijacked in 2009 off the coast of Africa by Somali pirates and held hostage for ransom. The resulting crisis, which was a test of wills between Captain Phillips, played by Tom Hanks; the U.S. military, which was determined to save the crew without submitting to payoffs; and the Somali pirate leader, played by Barkhad Abdi, who was an unknown Somali limo driver working in Minneapolis when he was cast for the part, and who was nominated for an Academy Award for his performance. The film was nominated as well, as was the screenplay by Billy Ray, based on Captain Phillips's memoir of the event. Directed by Paul Greengrass (THE BOURNE SUPREMACY; THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM; UNITED 93). Winner of the American Film Institute's Movie of the Year award in 2013. (Rated PG-13, 134 min.)
