Zach Braff (GARDEN STATE) co-wrote and directed this quirky indie portrait (partially funded by a Kickstarter campaign) of one Aidan Bloom (played by Braff), a struggling actor, father, and husband who, at 35, is still trying to find a purpose for his life. When Aidan's father (Mandy Patinkin) can no longer afford to pay for his children's private school, Aidan decides to home-school them himself, and in the process finds some of the answers he has long been looking for. With Kate Hudson. "The fruits of writer-director Zach Braff's Kickstarter are here for the general public, and they're at once vibrantly weird, beautiful and thoughtful." — Sean Fitz-Gerald, The Denver Post. (Rated R, 107 min.)

On October 7, 1998, University of Wyoming student Matthew Shepard was brutally beaten and tied to a fence and left to die because he was gay. Fifteen years after one of the most notorious hate crimes in U.S. history, Michele Josue, a close friend of Matt’s, has revisited the case with never-before-seen photos and rare video footage. Matt’s all-too-brief life is remembered through the vivid testimonies of those who knew him best, offering a searing, poignant, and multilayered portrait. In the end, the notion of forgiveness—embodied in the moving and courageous final act of Shepard's parents—takes on truly heroic proportions. (Not rated, 89 min.)

    A new thriller, based on the novel by John le Carré, about a Chechen Muslim, an illegal immigrant in the German city of Hamburg, who gets caught up in the middle of a terrorist plot and the international operatives determined to stop it. Starring Philip Seymour Hoffman (in one of his last major film roles), Rachel McAdams, Robin Wright, Willem Dafoe, and Daniel Brühl. Directed by Anton Corbijn (CONTROL; THE AMERICAN). "Like the best works of le Carré, it takes you on a sly, acerbic trip, full of triumph and failure." — Anthony Kaufman, Screen International. "A professional, old-school espionage outing, intricate as clockwork and acted with relish by the ever-watchable Hoffman." — Xan Brooks, The Guardian. (Rated R, 121 min.)


    Coming Soon to the Waters Edge Cinema

    For this unusual film, writer-director Richard Linklater (BEFORE MIDNIGHT; BERNIE; DAZED AND CONFUSED) shot the story of a boy's life from the age of 5 to 18 intermittently, over a period of 12 years, allowing his young lead (Ellar Coltrane) to grow up while playing the role. With Patricia Arquette and Ethan Hawke. "The film has that deadpan Linklater tone of slacker haphazardness, but you could also say that it's almost Joycean in its appreciation of the scruffy magic of everyday life." — Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly. (Not rated, 165 min.)
