“SOME KIND OF HEAVEN”; riding out the twilight years of our lives down in Sun City

Directed by Lance Oppenheim

"As far as my eyes can see There are shadows approaching me” These lines from The Alan Parsons Project’s song “Old and Wise” resonates with anyone over the age of sixty. The winter of our lives comes for us all. It is inevitable. We all get old. We can live our lives in preparation for our final years, but no one truly knows how we will handle our “final stretch.” But don’t we all deserve to ... more >

Our interview with the producer of “WHAT WOULD SOPHIA LOREN DO?” now available on Netflix

Distributed by Netflix
Directed by Ross Kauffman

Producer Regina K. Scully should have known better than to ask her Italian-American mother, Nancy, to try gluten-free pasta.

Noise, speed and brutality laced with the sweet, human touch of brotherhood; Liam Neeson stars in “THE MARKSMAN” | REVIEW

Jacob Perez, Harry Maldonado Teresa Ruiz and Liam Neeson
Directed by Robert Lorenz

Meryl Streep, Lucas Hedges and Diane Wiest
Directed by Steven Soderbergh

Regrets. The characters in Steven Soderbergh’s latest film have had a few. Writer Deborah Eisenberg’s first screenplay “Let Them All Talk” is smart and literate and a welcome cinematic character study of people behaving like human beings. Meryl Streep dives into one of her best roles in years playing Alice, an award-winning author who is up for yet another one to be presented to her in the ... more >
