R | 99 min | Drama, Mystery, Thriller

New York Times journalist Michael Finkel (Jonah Hill) loses his job when it’s revealed that he was not entirely truthful in a cover story he wrote on contemporary slave trading in Africa.

Based on actual events, Finkel’s relentless pursuit of Longo’s true story encompasses murder, love, deceit and redemption.

The former comedy co-stars are superbly cast in this fascinating, fact-based story. – TORONTO STAR

18:30 Elliot Smith HEAVEN ADORES YOU (new) @ The Flicks 2
 
event pic

By threading the music of Elliott Smith through the dense, yet often isolating landscapes of the three major cities he lived in — Portland, New York City, Los Angeles — Heaven Adores You presents a visual journey and an earnest review of the singer’s prolific songwriting and the impact it continues to have on fans, friends, and fellow musicians.

Evocative location photography gives a strong sense of the indie rock scenes he inhabited in Portland, Oregon, and New York City, and there are affecting interviews with friends and colleagues who struggle to make sense of it all. – CHICAGO READER

Heaven Adores You is the most complete, least icky attempt to date at telling the story of late singer-songwriter Elliott Smith. – WILLAMETTE WEEKLY

Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6dX47YOLyRs

103 min | Drama

From acclaimed director François Girard (The Red Violin) comes the inspirational story of a rebellious kid with a remarkable gift who is challenged by a demanding teacher to make the most unlikely of dreams come true.

Stet, a troubled and angry 11-year-old orphan from a small Texas town, ends up at a Boy Choir school back East after the death of his single mom. Completely out of his element, he finds himself in a battle of wills with a demanding Choir Master who recognizes a unique talent in this young boy as he pushes him to discover his creative heart and soul in music.

A stellar ensemble – including two-time Oscar-winner Dustin Hoffman, Oscar-winner Kathy Bates, two-time Emmy winner Eddie Izzard, three-time Oscar-nominee Debra Winger, Josh Lucas (A Beautiful Mind) and Kevin McHale (Glee) – headline a cast that also introduces an exciting group of newcomers as the young singers who battle each other as they take their boychoir to the competitive heights.

A hearty Dustin Hoffman plays the head of the American Boychoir School in a heart-felt, feel-good drama. – SYDNEY MORNING HERALD

*PG-13 | 119 min | Drama | 7.9 IMDB *

Based on the literary classic by Thomas Hardy, FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD is the story of independent, beautiful and headstrong Bathsheba Everdene (Carey Mulligan), who attracts three very different suitors: Gabriel Oak (Matthias Schoenaerts), a sheep farmer, captivated by her fetching willfulness; Frank Troy (Tom Sturridge), a handsome and reckless Sergeant; and William Boldwood (Michael Sheen), a prosperous and mature bachelor.

This timeless story of Bathsheba’s choices and passions explores the nature of relationships and love – as well as the human ability to overcome hardships through resilience and perseverance.

not to miss! 19:00 Straddling Two Worlds (2013) @ Meta House
 
event pic

As an artist and political activist, Ung Bun Heang was both an idealist and a passionate, unforgiving Cambodian nationalist.

Under the pen name ‘Sacrava’, he fired off a barrage of scurrilous cartoons attacking not only the Prime Minister and the Hun Sen regime but equally the royalists, the late King Father Sihanouk, America, China and all of Cambodia’s neighbors, especially Thailand and Vietnam. No one was spared, not even the opposition when he felt they needed a bite on the ankles – or, what he called, a poke with his pen. But he paid the price.

Heang knew he could never return to his beloved homeland from his adopted one, Australia. “I know exactly I am an ugly, black sheep in Cambodia,” he once said.

Above all, the artist longed for a new generation of Cambodians that would question, think critically and speak out with the sort of freedoms he had discovered abroad.

STRADDLING TWO WORLDS (2013, 21 min) profiles the late artist.

Sydney Schanberg is a New York Times journalist covering the civil war in Cambodia. Together with local representative Dith Pran, they cover some of the tragedy and madness of the war, in Phnom Penh.

When the American forces leave, Dith Pran sends his family with them, but stays behind himself to help Schanberg cover the event. As an American, Schanberg won't have any trouble leaving the country, but the situation is different for Pran; he's a local, and the Khmer Rouge are moving in.

The Killing Fields is a suspenseful and exhilarating experience, a journey through an apocalyptic landscape that features one shocking image after another. Watch, and you'll see why the film is so acclaimed and a must-see for everybody in Cambodia; locals as visitors.
