STORIES WE TELL: In this inspired, genre-twisting new film, writer/director Sarah Polley discovers that the truth depends on who’s telling it. Polley is both filmmaker and detective as she investigates the secrets kept by a family of storytellers. She playfully interviews and interrogates a cast of characters of varying reliability, eliciting refreshingly candid, yet mostly contradictory, answers to the same questions. Polley unravels the paradoxes to reveal the essence of family: always complicated, warmly messy and fiercely loving. STORIES WE TELL explores the elusive nature of truth and memory, but at its core is a deeply personal film about how our narratives shape and define us as individuals and families, all interconnecting to paint a profound, funny and poignant picture of the larger human story.

THE EAST is the story of a young woman, Jane who has gone from working at the FBI to starting a career at a shadowy, chilly, and fancy private intelligence firm. Her boss, Sharon assigns Jane to embed herself within a collective called the East that’s been successfully harassing (and worse) some mega-corporations. The film’s arc is weirdly similar to Edward Snowden’s: a young professional with a promising future begins in government and moves into the private sector, only to discover secrets he can’t keep. Tense, thoughtful, and deftly paced, The East is a political thriller that never loses sight of the human element. trailer

In the castle he finds an odd hunchback Igor (Feldman), a pretty lab assistant named Inga (Teri Garr) and the old housekeeper, frau Blucher (Leachman) -iiiiihhh!-. Young Frankenstein believes that the work of his grandfather is only crap, but when he discovers the book where the mad doctor described his reanimation experiment, he suddenly changes his mind… trailer
