In director Tony Kaye’s (American History X) DETACHMENT, Academy Award® winner Adrien Brody (The Pianist) stars as Henry Barthes, an educator with a true talent for connecting with his students. Yet Henry has chosen to bury his gift. By spending his days as a substitute teacher, he conveniently avoids any emotional connections by never staying anywhere long enough to form an attachment to either students or colleagues.
The film features a stellar ensemble cast, including Academy Award® winner Marcia Gay Harden, Christina Hendricks, William Petersen, Bryan Cranston, Tim Blake Nelson, Lucy Liu, Blythe Danner, James Caan, and newcomers Sami Gayle and Betty Kaye.
DETACHMENT premiered at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival and was the winner of several festival awards, including the International Critics Prize & Cartier Revelation Prize at the Deauville American Film Festival, the Grand Prize & Audience Award at the Festival de Cinema Valenciennes, the Best Artistic Contribution Award at the Tokyo International Film Festival and the Audience Award at the São Paulo International Film Festival. Tony Kaye received the Maverick Award at the Woodstock Film Festival.

Directed by Josh Stolberg (Piranha, Good Luck Chuck), CONCEPTION is a clever, romantic comedy that proves it takes more than sex to make a baby. From a couple fighting the odds of fertility to young teenagers losing their virginity, the film follows nine very different couples on the night they conceive, showing that sex can sometimes be more neurotic than erotic. The hilarious ensemble cast includes Emmy® winner Julie Bowen (Modern Family), Emmy® nominee Connie Britton (Friday Night Lights), Sarah Hyland (Modern Family), David Arquette (Never Been Kissed), Jason Mantzoukas (The League), and Alan Tudyk (Dodgeball).

After he and a colleague are recognized while stealing a massive bag of cocaine from drug dealers employed by local mob boss Marciano (Serge Riaboukine, Mondays in the Sun), Vincent quickly finds himself trapped in a situation that no parent would envy: His son has been kidnapped with the promise of execution if he doesn’t immediately deliver the bag back to its rightful owner.

388 ARLETTA AVENUE
On the surface, James Deakin (Nick Stahl, Sin City, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines) lives a quiet, routine, comfortable life with his wife Amy (Mia Kirshner, The Vampire Diaries) in their suburban home. Under the subtle manipulation of a faceless voyeur, however, cracks in their relationship begin to emerge. When Amy suddenly disappears, James is left to wonder if she’s been abducted or simply abandoned him, but their tormentor doesn’t stop there. As the manipulations become more twisted and violent, James desperately tries to identify just who’s doing this to him and why, but his adversary always seems to be one step ahead.
In this fresh, subversive take on the found-footage horror genre from the makers of Splice and Cube, filmmaker Randall Cole uses hidden cameras secretly placed throughout the house to illustrate the terror from the stalker’s point of view.
