Opening Night Event - Lean on Pete
Lean on Pete

Run Time: 120 minutes

Screening Time:
Thursday April 5th,  6:00 pm

Directed by: Andrew Haigh

Cast: Steve Buscemi, Chloë Sevigny, and Charlie Plummer

Synopsis:  From acclaimed filmmaker Andrew Haigh (Weekend; 45 Years), and based on the beloved novel by Willy Vlautin, comes Lean on Pete—a deeply moving story about love, loneliness, family, and friendship, told through the unique prism of one boy’s connection to a very special racehorse.

Fifteen-year-old Charley Thompson (Charlie Plummer) arrives in Portland, Oregon with his single father Ray (Travis Fimmel), both of them eager for a fresh start after a series of hard knocks. While Ray descends into personal turmoil, Charley finds acceptance and camaraderie at a local racetrack where he lands a job caring for an aging Quarter Horse named Lean On Pete. The horse’s gruff owner Del Montgomery (Steve Buscemi) and his seasoned jockey Bonnie (Chloë Sevigny) help Charley fill the void of his father’s absence—until he discovers that Pete is bound for slaughter, prompting him to take extreme measures to spare his new friend’s life. Charley and Pete head out into the great unknown, embarking on an odyssey across the new American frontier in search of a loving aunt Charley hasn’t seen in years. They experience adventure and heartbreak in equal measure, but never lose their irrepressible hope and resiliency as they pursue their dream of finding a place they can call home.

Featuring an incredible breakout turn by Charlie Plummer (The Dinner; King Jack; Ridley Scott’s forthcoming All The Money in the World) and memorable supporting work by indie stalwarts Buscemi, Sevigny and Steve Zahn, Lean on Pete is a compassionate and heartrending look at the desire for love, family, and acceptance that drives all of us.

Directed by: Adam Rifkin
Cast:   Burt Reynolds, Ariel Winter, Chevy Chase, Clark Duke, Ellar Coltrane

Synopsis: "Fact or fiction?" moments abound as an octogenarian movie star (Burt Reynolds) travels to Nashville to accept a film festival lifetime achievement award. Like the man who plays him, Vic Edwards was a college football star and sexy 1970s action hero. The echoes of that reality add a layer of emotional weight as Edwards revisits old haunts with his reluctant driver Lil (Ariel Winter). The trip down memory lane stirs Edwards' long-dormant heart while affording Lil a fresh perspective on this grumpy old man. Reynolds and Winter develop into an irresistible odd couple in this poignant, often funny evocation of fame's fleeting nature and the challenges of aging that doubles as a hilarious ode to DIY film festivals.
With plenty of clips from Reynolds' storied career, including digitally enhanced scenes where the elderly actor shares the screen with his young self, The Last Movie Star is also a valentine to its leading man, who responds with a graceful, resonant performance.

Directed by: Adam Rifkin
Cast:   Burt Reynolds, Ariel Winter, Chevy Chase, Clark Duke, Ellar Coltrane

Synopsis: "Fact or fiction?" moments abound as an octogenarian movie star (Burt Reynolds) travels to Nashville to accept a film festival lifetime achievement award. Like the man who plays him, Vic Edwards was a college football star and sexy 1970s action hero. The echoes of that reality add a layer of emotional weight as Edwards revisits old haunts with his reluctant driver Lil (Ariel Winter). The trip down memory lane stirs Edwards' long-dormant heart while affording Lil a fresh perspective on this grumpy old man. Reynolds and Winter develop into an irresistible odd couple in this poignant, often funny evocation of fame's fleeting nature and the challenges of aging that doubles as a hilarious ode to DIY film festivals.
With plenty of clips from Reynolds' storied career, including digitally enhanced scenes where the elderly actor shares the screen with his young self, The Last Movie Star is also a valentine to its leading man, who responds with a graceful, resonant performance.

And when the world is on edge waiting for a grand jury verdict on a high profile police case involving unarmed youth, you can bet all eyes are on you. For one black cop already struggling between duty and moral obligation, it only gets worse when he is profiled by his colleagues off-duty, nearly getting himself killed in the process – pushing him over the edge. Armed with the power of his badge, an antagonizing radio show for company, and some good old fashioned rage - the stage is set for a whirlwind day filled with vendetta and just desserts – as black cop targets the very community that justifies his colleagues –on a collision course with his own identity. Racial tension, law enforcement, and social media are the focus in this hyper active satire.

Synopsis: It’s not easy being a black cop. Your community doesn’t trust you, your colleagues are wary of you, and everyone assumes you hate NWA. And when the world is on edge waiting for a grand jury verdict on a high profile police case involving unarmed youth, you can bet all eyes are on you. For one black cop already struggling between duty and moral obligation, it only gets worse when he is profiled by his colleagues off-duty, nearly getting himself killed in the process – pushing him over the edge. Armed with the power of his badge, an antagonizing radio show for company, and some good old fashioned rage - the stage is set for a whirlwind day filled with vendetta and just desserts – as black cop targets the very community that justifies his colleagues –on a collision course with his own identity. Racial tension, law enforcement, and social media are the focus in this hyper active satire.

What happens when you throw together a fallen Mexican wrestler with serious rage issues, a just-out-of-prison ex-con with a regrettable face tattoo, and a recovering junkie motel owner in search of a kidney? That’s the premise of the berserk, blood-spattered, and wickedly entertaining feature debut from Ryan Prows. Set amidst the seedy underbelly of Los Angeles, Lowlife zigzags back and forth in time as it charts how fate—and a ruthless crime boss—connects three down-and-out reprobates mixed up in an organ harvesting scheme that goes from bad to worse to off-the-rails insane.

Written by: Rafael Casal & Daveed Diggs          :
Cast: Daveed Diggs, Rafael Casal, Janina Gavankar, Jasmine Cephas Jones, Ethan Embry, Tisha Campbell-Martin, Utkarsh Ambudkar, and Wayne Knight

Synopsis: Collin (Daveed Diggs) must make it through his final three days of probation for a chance at a new beginning.  He and his troublemaking childhood best friend, Miles (Rafael Casal), work as movers, and when Collin witnesses a police shooting, the two men’s friendship is tested as they grapple with identity and their changed realities in the rapidly-gentrifying neighborhood they grew up in.
 
Longtime friends and collaborators, Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal co-wrote and star in this timely and wildly entertaining story about friendship and the intersection of race and class set against the backdrop of Oakland.  Bursting with energy, style, and humor, and infused with the spirit of rap, hip hop, and spoken word, Blindspotting, boldly directed by Carlos López Estrada in his feature film debut, is a provocative hometown love letter that glistens with humanity.

Run Time: 90 minutes

Screening Times:

Directed by: Stanley Tucci

Cast: Armie Hammer, Clémence Poésy, Tony Shalhoub

Synopsis:  In 1964, while on a short trip to Paris, the American writer and art-lover James Lord (Armie Hammer) is asked by his friend, the world-renowned artist Alberto Giacometti (Geoffrey Rush), to sit for a portrait. The process, Giacometti assures Lord, will take only a few days. Flattered and intrigued, Lord agrees. So begins not only the story of an offbeat friendship, but, seen through the eyes of Lord, an insight into the beauty, frustration, profundity and, at times, downright chaos of the artistic process. FINAL PORTRAIT is a portrait of a genius, and of a friendship between two men who are utterly different, yet increasingly bonded through a single, ever-evolving act of creativity. It is a film which shines a light on the artistic process itself, by turns exhilarating, exasperating and bewildering, questioning whether the gift of a great artist is a blessing or a curse.

But when the teenage Anna is suddenly thrust into the real world under the protection of no-nonsense police officer Ellen (Liv Tyler), it soon becomes clear that the young woman is far from ordinary. Unable to adjust to a normal life, Anna finds herself drawn instead to the wild freedom of the forest while struggling to resist the growing bloodlust that has awakened inside her.
