Opening to rave reviews at the Venice Film Festival last year, Schrader's latest film is a richly complex, beautifully acted and stunningly shot existential thriller which follows a priest who undergoes a crisis of faith after he fails to prevent a tragedy in his parish. Featuring a career-best performance from Ethan Hawke, Schrader's latest film is a moving, thoughtful and engaging cinematic experience on a par with his best work as a writer and director.
In sensitive and unshrinking style, Academy Award-winning director Kevin Macdonald shines new and piercing light on the rise and fall of one of the music industries’ most iconic superstars, Whitney Houston. His documentary deftly chronicles Whitney Houston’s stratospheric rise to stardom on the world stage, and pieces together previously unseen home video, exclusive demo recordings, rare performance footage and interviews with those closest to the ballad-belting diva. Underlying the starry story is the darker side of Whitney Houston's life: a turbulent marriage to American rapper Bobby Brown - a possible catalyst to the singer’s self-destructive battle with drug addiction - and some oppressive family secrets. We witness a brilliant career turn to chaos, scandal and the death of woman that moved millions. Revisiting one of the most tragic stories in pop-music history, Whitney is a salient testament to incandescent talent and tragic finales.

An animal rights group stages a daring infiltration into the New York Central Park Zoo, freeing four best friends (a giraffe, a hippopotamus, a lion, and a zebra) from captivation. When the ship capsizes, however, they end up in Madagascar, where they are free to live in the wild... but these New Yorkers, raised in captivity, have absolutely no clue about how to fend for themselves without human care (and even if they did, they"re not native to Madagascar anyway).
