Hell or High Water

Friday, 9/23 – Thursday, 10/6

Starring: Chris Pine, Ben Foster, Jeff Bridges

International award-winning Scottish film director David Mackenzie follows up his BAFTA Award-winning film Starred Up with his take on the contemporary American Western. Hell or High Water premiered at the Cannes Film Festival.

Two brothers—Toby (Chris Pine), a straight-living, divorced father trying to make a better life for his son; and Tanner (Ben Foster), a short-tempered ex-con with a loose trigger finger—come together to rob branch after branch of the bank that is foreclosing on their family land. The hold-ups are part of a last-ditch scheme to take back a future that powerful forces beyond their control have stolen from under their feet. Vengeance seems to be theirs until they find themselves in the crosshairs of a relentless, foul-mouthed Texas Ranger (Jeff Bridges) looking for one last triumph on the eve of his retirement. As the brothers plot a final bank heist to complete their plan, a showdown looms at the crossroads where the last honest law man and a pair of brothers with nothing to live for except family collide.

“Hell or High Water is a thrillingly good movie — a crackerjack drama of crime, fear, and brotherly love set in a sun-roasted, deceptively sleepy West Texas that feels completely exotic for being so authentic.”

London Road

Friday, 9/30 – Thursday, 10/6

Starring: Tom Hardy, Olivia Colman, Anita Dobson

Adapted from a successful National Theater stage production, London Road takes transcripts of interviews with the people of Ipswich and transforms them, verbatim, into innovative musical numbers.

London Road documents true events that occurred in 2006, when the town of Ipswich was shattered by the discovery of the bodies of five women. The residents of London Road had struggled for years with frequent soliciting and curb-crawling on their street. When a local resident was charged, and then convicted, of the murders, the community grappled with what it meant to be at the epicenter of this tragedy. Using their own words set to an innovative musical score, London Road tells a moving story of ordinary people coming together during the darkest of experiences.
