FIRST MAN
2018, Universal, 141 min, USA/Japan, Dir: Damien Chazelle

Oscar-winning director Damien Chazelle reteams with LA LA LAND star Ryan Gosling for the riveting story behind the first manned mission to the moon, focusing on Neil Armstrong and the decade leading to the historic Apollo 11 flight. Based on the book by James R. Hansen, this visceral and intimate account is told from Armstrong’s perspective, exploring the triumphs and the cost - to the astronaut, his family, his colleagues and the nation itself - of one of the most dangerous missions in history. With Claire Foy. "Damien Chazelle’s sweeping and intimate new film ... takes the conquest of difficulty as both theme and inspiration." - A.O. Scott, New York Times


THE LOBSTER
2015, A24, 119 min, Dir: Yorgos Lanthimos

In this highly imaginative, delightfully absurdist comedy from visionary director Yorgos Lanthimos (DOGTOOTH), Colin Farrell stars as David, a man who has just been dumped by his wife. To make matters worse, David lives in a society where single people have 45 days to find true love, or else they are turned into the animal of their choice and released into the woods. After several romantic misadventures, David decides to make a daring escape to abandon this world and ultimately joins up with a rebel faction known as the Loners, a group founded on a complete rejection of romance. But once there David meets an enigmatic stranger (Rachel Weisz) who stirs up unexpected and strong feelings within him.


UNBREAKABLE
2000, Buena Vista Pictures, 106 min, Dir: M. Night Shyamalan

A cult favorite that has spawned two sequels, this mind-bending deconstruction of superhero films co-stars Robin Wright and features a suspenseful James Newton Howard score.
