While we only open one new film at The Little this week, it is, by far, one of the most anticipated indie movies of the year. The Kids Are All Right was the most buzzed about film at Sundance this year and won the coveted Teddy Award for Best Feature Film at the Berlin Film Festival (fun fact: Rochester's own Michael Gamilla of ImageOut Film Festival was the only American chosen to serve on the judges' panel and was critical to the film's win there).

The film, directed and co-written by Lisa Cholodenko, is a superbly drawn portrait of what we call today's 'modern family'. It doesn't hurt that the film boasts a cast like Annette Bening, Julianne Moore and Mark Ruffalo- all doing some of the best work of their careers here, buoyed by the insanely funny and whip-smart screenplay. Every scene rings true, every ounce of dialogue is remarkable in its authenticity- this is how we all speak in our everyday lives, and it is a jolt to the system to finally hear that reflected onscreen. You would be hard-pressed to find a more universally praised film in the past year or two, with nearly every critic in the country in love with the film.

"Movies like it don't come along very often. Beautifully written, impeccably played, funny and randy and true." - Boston Globe

"A miracle. Boldly funny. A smart, cheerful, character-driven relationship comedy. An unabashed love letter to the idea of family."

"When Annette Bening, Julianne Moore, and Mark Ruffalo share the screen the film becomes a master class of delivery, timing and reaction."
-Roger Ebert

Gay, straight, black, white, single, married, parents or not- YOU MUST COME SEE THIS FILM!

"One of the best films of the year. Absolutely see it!"
-Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune

Nic and Jules (three-time Academy-Award nominee Annette Bening and four-time Academy-Award nominee Julianne Moore) are married and share a cozy suburban Southern California home with their teenage children, Joni and Laser (Mia Wasikowska and Josh Hutcherson).Nic and Jules - or, when referred to jointly by Joni, "Moms" - gave birth to and raised their children, and built a family life for the four of them. As Joni prepares to leave for college, 15-year-old Laser presses her for a big favor. He wants Joni, now 18, to help him find their biological father; the two teenagers were conceived by donor insemination.

Against her better judgment, Joni honors her brother's request and manages to make contact with "bio-dad" Paul (Mark Ruffalo), an easygoing restaurateur. The kids find themselves drawn to the confirmed bachelor's footloose style - especially in contrast to Nic, a principled doctor who has long established their house rules. Jules, who has been looking to start a new career in landscaping, also strikes up a rapport with Paul. As Paul comes into the lives of the forthright four, an unexpected new chapter begins for them as family ties are defined, re-defined, and then re-re-defined.

"Incredibly powerful! The year's most stirring film."
- New York Magazine

17 year-old Ree Dolly (Jennifer Lawrence) sets out to track down her father, who put their house up for his bail bond and then disappeared. If she fails, Ree and her family will be turned out into the Ozark woods. Challenging her outlaw kin's code of silence and risking her life, Ree hacks through the lies, evasions and threats offered up by her relatives and begins to piece together the truth.

Based on the novel by Daniel Woodrell, WINTER'S BONE was filmed entirely on location in the Ozarks of Southwestern Missouri on the RED CAMERA.

An official selection of the 2010 Sundance Film Festival's Dramatic Competition, the film was the recipient of the Grand Jury Prize: Dramatic and the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award.

I AM LOVE tells the story of the wealthy Recchi family, whose lives are undergoing sweeping changes. Eduardo Sr., the family patriarch, has decided to name a successor to the reigns of his massive industrial company, surprising everyone by splitting power between his son Tancredi, and grandson Edo. But Edo dreams of opening a restaurant with his friend Antonio, a handsome and talented chef.

At the heart of the family is Tancredi's wife Emma (Tilda Swinton), a Russian immigrant who has adopted the culture of Milan. An adoring and attentive mother, her existence is shocked to the core when she falls quickly and deeply in love with Edo's friend and partner Antonio, and embarks on a passionate love affair that will change her family forever.

Filmmakers Sebastian Junger and Tim Hetherington bring the reality of war to the big screen with Restrepo. What began as an assignment for Vanity Fair Magazine and later as reports for ABC News morphs into a feature-length documentary that films a year in the life of U.S. soldiers deployed to one of the most dangerous spots in Afghanistan. Moving and at times as riveting as any dramatic narrative, the doc recently screened at the San Francisco International Film Festival with Hetherington in attendance. He describes his and Junger's job as that of witnesses. Restrepo is their powerful testimony.

War films have been a hard sell at the box office in the near decade that the U.S. has spent in its separate battles in Afghanistan and Iraq, but the film will arrive in theaters with festival buzz and a Sundance Grand Jury documentary award. With an appeal to fans of human interest stories, as well as those interested in war and politics.

"A sumptuous recreation of 1920s France and the unbridled affair between two of the century's most iconic figures."
- Richard Mowe, Boxoffice Magazine

The brief love affair between two 20th century icons is dramatized in this period drama from director Jan Kounen. Igor Stravinsky (Mads Mikkelsen) was one of Europe's most promising new composers when in 1913 he premiered his ballet Le Sacre du Printemps (aka The Rite of Spring); the piece proved to be wildly controversial, and the audience at the Paris debut was vocal in their disgust, ruining Stravinsky's reputation for years. One patron who did like the performance was Coco Chanel (Anna Mouglalis), who was already among Europe's most celebrated fashion designers. Seven years later, Chanel encounters Stravinsky at a party, and learns that the composer is penniless and without a place to live.

Chanel befriends him, and allows him to move into her summer home in the country along with his wife, Catherine (Elena Morozova), and their four children. Chanel is nursing a broken heart after the recent death of her boyfriend, and what began as an act of compassion for a fellow artist turns into an affair of the heart as Chanel and Stravinsky become lovers, much to the chagrin of the sickly Catherine.

One of the best comedies of the year!

With John's social life at a standstill and his ex-wife about to get remarried, a down on his luck divorc�e finally meets the woman of his dreams, only to discover she has another man in her life - her son. Still single seven years after the breakup of his marriage, John (John C. Reilly) has all but given up on romance. But at the urging of his ex-wife and best friend Jamie (Catherine Keener), John grudgingly agrees to join her and her fianc� Tim at a party. To his and everyone else's surprise, he actually manages to meet someone: the gorgeous and spirited Molly (Marisa Tomei).

Their chemistry is immediate. The relationship takes off quickly but Molly is oddly reluctant to take the relationship beyond John's house. Perplexed, he follows her home and discovers the other man in Molly's life: her son, Cyrus (Jonah Hill). A 21-year-old new age musician, Cyrus is his mom's best friend and shares an unconventional relationship with her. Cyrus will go to any lengths to protect Molly and is definitely not ready to share her with anyone, especially John. Before long, the two are locked in a battle of wits for the woman they both love-and it appears only one man can be left standing when it's over.

Once upon a time, Ben Kalmen (Douglas) had everything a man could possibly want - a high-paying job, a beautiful wife, and a spacious Manhattan apartment - now all of that is a distant memory. The former owner of a successful auto dealership, Ben has recently lost everything thanks to his own inability to resist his impulses. But resilient Ben isn't the type of guy to stay down for the count, and lately things are starting to look up for him again.

Despite being divorced from his former college sweetheart Nancy (Susan Sarandon), Ben still manages to see his daughter Susan (Jenna Fischer) and his grandson on a regular basis, and his new girlfriend Jordan (Mary-Louise Parker) may have just the connections needed to help the floundering businessman get his career back on track. When Ben takes Jordan's college-bound daughter Allyson (Imogen Poots) on a tour of a prospective school, however, his steely new resolve is put to the ultimate test.
