WINNER OF FOUR OSCARS: Best Actor (Rami Malek), Best Sound Editing, Best Film Editing, Best Sound Mixing
“Bohemian Rhapsody,” the highest-grossing musical biographical film of all time, is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury (Rami Malek), who defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band in the 1970s through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound, their near-implosion as Mercury's lifestyle spirals out of control, and their triumphant reunion on the eve of the Live Aid Concert in 1985,where Mercury, facing the life-threatening disease himself, leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. Freddie Mercury died at the age of 45 in 1991.

…giddily entertaining…and ultimately something far more meaningful and thrilling.

We humans are a force of nature. As human activities alter the basic elements of life - earth, air, water, and fire - those elements change human life in turn. In this riveting and visually rich drama, blending art and science, we follow renowned environmental photographer James Balog as he explores wildfires, hurricanes, sea level rise, a struggling coal mining community, and our changing air supply. With rare compassion and heart, “The Human Element” highlights Americans who are on the front lines of climate change, inspiring us to re-evaluate our relationship with the natural world.

OSCAR WINNER: Best Foreign Language Film, Best Director and Best Cinematography (Alfonso Cuarón).
In Spanish with English subtitles
ROMA immerses us in a year in the life of Cleo (Yalitza Aparicio), a young domestic worker for a family in the middle-class neighborhood of Roma in Mexico City. Director Alfonso Cuarón delivers an artful love letter to the nanny who raised him, and draws on his own childhood to create a vivid and emotional portrait of domestic strife and social hierarchy amidst political turmoil of the 1970s.

ROMA is one of the best movies I’ve ever seen, and one of the most moving.

Julianne Moore is GLORIA, a free-spirited divorcée who spends her days at a straight-laced office job and her nights on the dance floor, joyfully letting loose at clubs around Los Angeles. After meeting Arnold (John Turturro) on a night out, she finds herself thrust into an unexpected new romance, filled with both the joys of budding love and the complications of dating, identity, and family.

Julianne Moore shoots and scores – as well as laughs, cries, smokes, drinks, flies and sings – in the quirky Gloria Bell, which minds a fine line between in-depth character study and offbeat romantic comedy.
