A sudden family crisis sends three siblings off on an adventure in this comedy-drama set in working-class England in 1987. Noel (Timmy Creed) is the oldest of three bothers living with their ailing father. Noel and his siblings -- eleven-year-old Paudie (Paul Courtney), who is quick with a joke and dreams of playing professional football some day, and seven-year-old Scwally (T.J. Griffin), who is shy and fascinated with Star Wars even though he hasn't actually seen the film -- are all having a hard time dealing with the knowledge that their father has only a short time to live. When Dad falls asleep, Noel takes off his watch for safekeeping, but when he gets in a fight the timepiece is broken beyond repair. Though the watch was just a cheap digital model, it was Dad's most prized possession, won at an amusement park in Ballybunion; Noel doesn't want Dad to know what happened, so he "borrows" a bread truck from a neighbor and sets off for Ballybunion to find a replacement. Since he hurt his hand in the fight, Noel brings Paudie along to help him work the gear shift, and Scwally is allowed to tag along so he won't tell on his brothers; the brothers see plenty of sights have some unexpected adventures along the way as they look for the watch and come to terms with their father's illness. My Brothers was the firs feature film from screenwriter Paul Fraser. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Having recently returned to her native Italy after living in Switzerland for 10 years, quiet but curious 13-year-old Marta is left to her own devices while her loving but worn-out mother toils away at an industrial bakery. Marta's only source of socialization is the local church, where she is told to attend preparatory classes for her confirmation. But the doctrines of Roman Catholicism offer little in terms of life lessons or consolation, and she quickly sees through the hypocrisy of the priest, who cares more about status than about his constituents. Eventually, Marta forges her very own way of the cross, which turns out to have much less to do with God than with her own climb towards adulthood.

Genre: Documentary
IMDB: IMDB Link

As the title suggests, Brother, Can You Spare a Dollar explores the socioeconomic realities of the Great Depression era and compares it to our current recession-ridden society. Through contemporary interviews and archival materials the film recreates the 1930's - a period when most people had low expectations regarding material comforts, but high expectations in terms of personal responsibility and community. We travel across the decades to site the growing influence of consumerism, technology, and mass media and illustrate how our higher standards of living were garnered at the expense of our sense of community, security and fellowship. We study the Occupy Movement and it's potential to transform the "Me" Generation, trace the development of the "virtual" society, and speculate on the future social impact of frivolous technologies. -- (C) Quad Cinema

Humanity's ascent is often measured by the speed of progress. But what if progress is actually spiraling us downwards, towards collapse? Ronald Wright, whose best-seller, A Short History Of Progress inspired Surviving Progress, shows how past civilizations were destroyed by "progress traps" - alluring technologies and belief systems that serve immediate needs, but ransom the future. As pressure on the world's resources accelerates and financial elites bankrupt nations, can our globally-entwined civilization escape a final, catastrophic progress trap? With potent images and illuminating insights from thinkers who have probed our genes, our brains, and our social behaviour, this requiem to progress-as-usual also poses a challenge: to prove that making apes smarter isn't an evolutionary dead-end. -- (C) First Run

Inspired by brilliant precious stones, George Balanchine exquisitely choreographed Jewels in 1967 as three disparate parts, each with its own composer and striking beauty. The ballet serves as a tribute to the three cities-Paris, New York, and St. Petersburg, all of which carved the elegance, aesthetic and style of Balanchine. Emeralds, honoring the French romantic school, reveals the most delicate of movements, while Rubies reflects the lightning-fast pace of New York in a jazzy, witty and sharp attack. Diamonds is an homage to the opulence and regality of Balanchine's native Russia. Recently added to the Bolshoi repertoire, the dancers bring "a fascinating life" (Financial Times) to this ballet that combines pure virtuosity, class, and elegance.

From legendary Academy Award (R)-winning writer/director Costa-Gavras (Missing, Z) comes CAPITAL, a fast-paced, darkly comic, suspenseful drama set in the high stakes world of global finance. When the CEO of France's Phenix Bank collapses on the golf course, Machiavellian young executive Marc Tourneuil (Gad Elmaleh, "Midnight in Paris") is crowned as his replacement. A whirlwind of ruthless ambition, power struggles, greed and deception ensues as Tourneuil's brutal ascent is jeopardized by a hostile takeover attempt from a large American hedge fund led by Dittmar Rigule (Gabriel Byrne, "Vikings," "In Treatment"), erotic distractions from international supermodel Nassim (Liya Kebede), and adversaries with an agenda for destruction. CAPITAL is a pointed commentary on how the Darwinian world of contemporary capitalism plays itself out across the global financial stage. (c) Cohen
