2 Days In New York Trailer


French beauty Marion and radio presenter Mingus have a wonderfully healthy relationship at home with their children from former relationships. However, their happiness is tested on the arrival of her unconventional and mischievous family who bring with them vulgarity, casual racism and bold opinions. Among them are Rose, Marion's sexually obsessed sister; her crazy boyfriend; Marion's ex-boyfriend and her sausage loving father. Mingus starts to have second thoughts about his girlfriend who appears to have a completely different personality around her outrageous family; he even talks about his frustrations with a cardboard cut-out of his hero and US President Barack Obama. Is their relationship strong enough to survive this new and complicated situation?

Dream Of Light Review


OK
One is tempted during the opening of Dream of Light to proclaim it one of the most fascinating documentaries ever made. For 15 minutes, there is nearly no dialogue, as Antonio López García, a renowned Spanish painter, prepares a canvas for his next work: a painting of the sun as it dances across the leaves and fruit of a quince tree.

Our Song Review

A low-budget, low-income slice-of-life movie oozing with community atmosphere and authentic affinity, "Our Song" will likely come and go in a blip from your local art house theater. But it deserves better.

Simply but vividly portraying the largely uneventful dog days of summer for three project-dwelling teenage girls in Brooklyn's Crown Heights neighborhood, writer-director Jim McKay ("Girls Town") scores such supremely natural performances from his trio of unknown stars that you feel as if you're eavesdropping on their lives.

Kerry Washington plays Lanisha, a coy 15-year-old with enough little girl left in her to absentmindedly smile and rock her shoulders to and fro when she thinks about boys. But Lani is prematurely worldly as well, having been pregnant once already -- a secret she confides to her best friend Maria, who has just gotten knocked up herself.
