Dir. Silas Howard - 2018 - 92m - No Matinees

SPECIAL THANKS TO THE TRANSGENDER RESOURCE CENTER OF NM AND SELF SERVE TOYS!

Brooklyn parents Alex (Claire Danes) and Greg (Jim Parsons) are lucky to have a kid like Jake. Their four-year-old is bright, precocious, creative—and just happens to prefer Disney princesses to toy cars and skirts to jeans. Jake’s “gender expansive” behavior—as local preschool director Judy (Octavia Spencer) dubs it—is no big deal to Alex and Greg. Or so it seems, until the process of navigating New York City’s hyper-competitive private school system opens up a parental quagmire: could Jake’s gender nonconformity be just the thing that gives their child an edge in the admissions game? How young is too young to put a label on a child’s identity? Is this just a phase, or is Jake truly transgender? Split in their opinions on how to handle the situation, Alex and Greg find themselves navigating an emotional and ethical minefield with one patch of common ground between them: their fierce desire to do what’s right for Jake. Transparent director Silas Howard helms this timely, honest, emotionally rich look at 21st-century parenting.

"A Kid Like Jake" tackles the tricky topic of gender dysphoria with sensitivity and grace.” - Christy Lemire, RogerEbert.com

“An authentic, conversational messiness we rarely see on screen.” - Alex Barasch, Slate

“This film is a cynical but spot-on take on the world we live in today, where even Lego-loving tykes become wrapped up in movements.” - Johnny Oleksinski, New York Post

Dir. David Zellner - 2018 - 113m

Samuel Alabaster (Robert Pattinson), an affluent pioneer, ventures across the American Frontier to marry the love of his life, Penelope (Mia Wasikowska). As Samuel traverses the Wild West with a drunkard named Parson Henry (David Zellner) and a miniature horse called Butterscotch, their once-simple journey grows treacherous, blurring the lines between hero, villain and damsel. A loving reinvention of the western genre from the Zellner brothers (Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter), DAMSEL showcases their trademark unpredictability, off-kilter sense of humor, and unique brand of humanism.

“The Zellners are certainly assembling an oeuvre that's distinctly their own, utterly unafraid to veer off the beaten path to their quirky characters' hearts' desire.” - Jacob Knight, Birth.Movies.Death.

“A good film, particularly because of its acting and originality.” - Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com

“Boy, does "Damsel" really blossom.” - Sara Stewart, New York Post

Complex sociological themes run through this science-fiction classic about three astronauts marooned on a futuristic planet where apes rule and humans are slaves. The stunned trio discovers that these highly intellectual simians can both walk upright and talk. They have even established a class system and a political structure. The astronauts suddenly find themselves part of a devalued species, trapped and imprisoned by the apes.

“By its appeal to both the imagination and the intellect within a context of action and elemental adventure, in its relevance to the consuming issues of its time...Planet of the Apes is that rare film which will transcend all age and social groupings.” - John Mahoney, Hollywood Reporter

“As illuminatingly bleak a statement on human hubris as a Hollywood superproduction has given us.”- Keith Uhlich, Time Out

“Planet of the Apes is an amazing film.” - Variety Staff
