MAIDEN, from director Alex Holmes, is a new documentary that tells the story of Tracy Edwards, a 24-year-old charter boat cook, who became the skipper of the first ever all-female crew to enter the Whitbread Round the World Yacht Race in 1989. Tracy's inspirational dream was opposed on all sides: her male competitors thought an all-women crew would never make it, the chauvinistic yachting press took bets on her failure, and potential sponsors rejected her, fearing they would die at sea and generate bad publicity. But Tracy refused to give up: she remortgaged her home and bought a secondhand boat, putting everything on the line to ensure the team made it to the starting line. With the help of her remarkable crew, she went on to shock the sport world and prove that women are very much the equal of men.

With stunning archival footage and interviews with the amazing Maiden crew, Holmes captures that high in this stirring documentary that recounts not just the feminist achievement, but [the] triumph of the human spirit.

From director Lulu Wang comes this funny, uplifting tale of Chinese-born, U.S.-raised Billi, who reluctantly returns to China to find that, although the whole family knows their matriarch, Nai Nai, has been given mere weeks to live, everyone has decided not to tell her of her illness. To assure her happiness, they gather under the joyful guise of an expedited wedding, uniting family members scattered among new homes abroad. As Billi navigates a minefield of family expectations and proprieties, she feels like a fish out of water in her home country, struggling with the family’s decision to hide the truth from her grandmother. Billi is played by Awkwafina, in her critically-acclaimed first dramatic role (best-known for her comedic portrayal in Crazy Rich Asians).

A universal story any audience will adore.

Inspired by the book ”We Were An Island: The Maine Life of Art and Nan Kellam” by Peter Blanchard III, the film brings to life the poignant, deeply romantic story of the couple’s life on Placentia, an uninhabited island near Mt. Desert, from their arrival in 1949 until just after Art’s death in 1985.ˇThe Kellams lived alone on the 522-acre island, with no electricity, no telephone, and only an oar-powered dory to bring groceries from Bass Island two miles away.

Both the director and screenwriter grew up on Mt. Desert Island, hearing stories of the couple who left Los Angeles to buy the isolated island. Whether in response to the horrors they witnessed in international news during World War II or from a desire to take on a life project that was utterly unique, Art and Nan Kellam experienced both independence from society and a connection with nature that seem nearly impossible today.

The cast includes Loudon Wainwright III (Knocked Up, Big Fish) and Becky Ann Baker (Freaks and Geeks, Girls- Emmy nominee) lead the cast as Art and Nan Kellam. Real-life married couple Jennifer Mudge (Dutchman - Drama Desk) and Chris Henry Coffey (Trust) plays the couple in earlier years. The cast is rounded out by Dylan Baker (The Good Wife - 3 time Emmy nominee) as Dr. Julian Kuffler, iconic boat builder Chummy Rich as his own grandfather, Cliff Rich, and Jason Hodgton (Animal Planet) as Eddie the stern man.

Echo In The Canyon celebrates the explosion of popular music that came out of LA's Laurel Canyon in the mid-60s as folk went electric and The Byrds, The Beach Boys, Buffalo Springfield and The Mamas and the Papas gave birth to the California Sound. Featuring Jakob Dylan (Bob Dylan’s son), the film explores the beginnings of the Laurel Canyon music scene. Dylan uncovers never-before-heard personal details behind the bands and their songs and how that music continues to inspire today. Echo in the Canyon contains candid conversations and performances with Brian Wilson, Ringo Starr, Michelle Phillips, Eric Clapton, Stephen Stills, David Crosby, Graham Nash, Roger McGuinn and Jackson Browne as well as contemporary musicians they influenced such as Tom Petty (in his very last film interview), Beck, Fiona Apple, Cat Power, Regina Spektor and Norah Jones.

For rock ‘n’ rollers of all ages, it’s mandatory viewing.

DOWNTOWN ABBEY, the beloved UK television series that dominated Sunday nights on PBS for six seasons and won 15 Emmys, becomes a motion picture event as the beloved Crawley family and their intrepid staff prepare for the most important moment of their lives. A royal visit from the King and Queen of England will unleash scandal, romance and intrigue that will leave the future of Downton hanging in the balance. Writer Julian Fellowes and the original cast return to tell the continuing story of the Crawley family, picking up the storyline in late 1927. Like the television series, the film was shot at Highclere Castle in Hampshire, England.

According to Julie Miller of Vanity Fair, “The film's story line was inspired by an actual royal visit that King George V and Queen Mary made to Wentworth Woodhouse, a country house in Yorkshire, in 1912—to “restate the importance of monarchy,” according to Fellowes. Like the real trip, Downton Abbey's royal extravaganza includes a spectacular parade—created with hundreds of extras in period-precise costumes, cannons, and horses—and white-tie wining and dining. The event is so large in scale that Carson, the family's beloved former butler played by Jim Carter, comes out of a palsy-induced retirement to return to Downton and ensure that nary a teaspoon is out of place.”
