Millions know their voices, but no one knows their names. In his compelling new film 20 FEET FROM STARDOM, award-winning director Morgan Neville shines a spotlight on the untold true story of the backup singers behind some of the greatest musical legends of the 21st century. Triumphant and heartbreaking in equal measure, the film is both a tribute to the unsung voices who brought shape and style to popular music and a reflection on the conflicts, sacrifices and rewards of a career spent harmonizing with others. These gifted artists span a range of styles, genres and eras of popular music, but each has a uniquely fascinating and personal story to share of life spent in the shadows of superstardom. Along with rare archival footage and a peerless soundtrack, 20 FEET FROM STARDOM boasts intimate interviews with Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Wonder, Mick Jagger and Sting to name just a few. However, these world-famous figures take a backseat to the diverse array of backup singers whose lives and stories take center stage in the film. (c) TWC-Radius

IMDB: IMDB Link

In this inspired, genre-twisting new film, Oscar (R)-nominated 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. As each relates their version of the family mythology, present-day recollections shift into nostalgia-tinged glimpses of their mother, who departed too soon, leaving a trail of unanswered 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.

On the verge of a forced retirement, Don Celso, an elderly office worker begins to relive both real and imagined memories from his life - a trip to the movies as a young boy with Beethoven, listening to tall tales from Long John Silver, a brief stay in a haunted hotel. Stories hide within stories and the thin line between imagination and reality steadily erodes, opening up a marvelous new world of personal remembrance and fantastic melodrama. In this playfully elegiac film, loosely adapted from the fantastical short stories of Chilean writer Hernan del Solar, Raul Ruiz (MYSTERIES OF LISBON) has crafted a final masterwork on his favorite subjects: fiction, history and life itself.

The glamour of old Hollywood meets the glitz of contemporary Tinseltown in writer/director Bernard Rose's adaptation of Leo Tolstoy's short story Two Hussars. It seemed like a lifetime ago when celebrated movie director Jack Hussar (Danny Huston) swept the gorgeous Diana (Sienna Miller) off her feet during a whirlwind trip to Hollywood to raise financing for his latest film. From the wild industry parties to the tense poker game at sunrise, that night was the stuff of legends. Years later, Jack Hussar Jr. (Jack Huston) shows up in Hollywood eager to bankroll his feature debut. As the present begins to echo the past, an aging Diana (Jacqueline Bisset) watches sentimentally while Jack Jr. sweeps her daughter off her feet with the same charisma as his legendary father. Before this night is over, a whole new chapter in Hollywood history will be written. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Storytelling in all its forms is skewered in The Catechism Cataclysm. In this divinely bizarre and funny tale, wild characters infuse stories within stories until the lines between the Bible, Mark Twain, and campfire tales are hilariously blurred. Father Billy (Steve Little), an eccentric young priest, is forced to take asabbatical by his superiors when he is discovered telling inappropriate parables to his flock. Billy tracks down his high-school idol Robbie (Robert Longstreet), who begrudgingly agrees to a canoe trip. On the water, the two men reminisce about Billy's days as the keyboardist in a Christian band and Robbie's as a guitarist for a metal band. When night approaches, they realize they have lost their way--and that's when things get weird. -- (C) IFC Midnight

By turns romantic, harrowing and funny,the stories of Something Better Somewhere Else follow the odd adventures of people who step outside of their everyday lives to see if there really is something better.

A coming-of-age story set in a vast, cross-country landscape, Arcadia begins when twelve-year-old Greta's dad Tom (Academy Award nominated actor John Hawkes) wakes her up before dawn and crams her and her two siblings into a dented station wagon. They set off on a 3,000 mile journey from the New England woods to the California desert. On the way, Tom tells enchanting stories, paints pictures of a California paradise, and assures the kids that Mom will soon join them. Greta believes him at first, mesmerized by the strange new scenery and clinging to her stuffed bunny Harrison. Older sister Caroline nonchalantly accepts his stories, more focused on the boyfriend she's leaving behind. And nine-year-old Nat, too young to suspect a thing, is eager to see the epic Grand Canyon. But Tom's mood shifts as often as the landscape outside their window, and the kids soon find themselves in increasingly unpleasant and even dangerous situations. Mom's presence seems to recede further with every mile they travel. (c) Film Movement

Corvo, the smallest island in the archipelago of the Azores, is the westernmost point of Europe, a tiny speck of land in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, dominated by the immense crater of a volcano, and inhabited by a single village of 440 people. Accompanied only by his soundman/composer Didio Pestana, filmmaker Goncalo Tocha spent several years journeying back and forth between mainland Portugal and Corvo. Fueled by the impossible, quixotic desire to create an exhaustive record of the island and its inhabitants - their landscape, their daily lives, their industry, their pursuits, their stories, their memories - Tocha has created a poetic yet richly detailed portrait of a uniquely isolated community, one that has existed for 500 years but has rarely been documented. Combining anthropological records, literature, lost archives, and mythological and autobiographical stories, IT'S THE EARTH NOT THE MOON is a beautiful and astoundingly engrossing chronicle of a civilization stranded in the middle of the sea.

HERE COMES THE DEVIL combines modern indie filmmaking and storytelling with a hint of '70s-styled psychological horror that may not just be psychological. Francisco Barreiro and Laura Caro play parents Felix and Sol whose preteen son and daughter inexplicably reappear after being lost overnight on a desolate, cave-riddled mountainside after a casual hike became every parent's nightmare. The good luck and good fortune of their return soon changes, as the children's behavior suggests ominous and unspeakable events the night the children were lost that continue even now. As a loving couple - and loving parents - try to care for and protect their children, the ancient and half-whispered legends around the caves and the mountain and those who have gone there before become too strange to believe ... and too dangerous, no matter how insane, to ignore.
