Heart Like a Hand Grenade
heartlikeahandgrenade_tkt_thumb.jpg
Grab a guitar and a yellow legal padyou’re going into the studio with Green Day. More than 10 years after the release of American Idiot, the 2015 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees present this time capsule rock doc that takes us inside the songwriting and recording process of their Grammy Award®-winning punk rock opera. Now that the album has achieved multiplatinum status and become a hugely successful Broadway show, looking back on them in the studio is both nostalgic and insightfulthe band knew they had something good, but even they didn’t know how good. Filmmaker John Roecker adorns the behind-the-scenes clips with stylish touches including a massive gig poster collage and a Busby Berkeley meets swingin’ ‘60s choreographed set piece. Billboard, check. Broadway, check. Now Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt, and Tré Cool are poised to conquer the big screen.

The Danish Girl
thedanishgirl_tkt_thumb.jpg
Following his Oscar® winning crowd-pleaser The King’s Speech (MVFF 2010), director Tom Hooper explores another remarkable story from 20th-century European history with The Danish Girl, the story of renowned painter Lili Elbe, one of the first people to undergo gender reassignment surgery. Marvelously played by Academy Award®-winner Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything, MVFF Spotlight 2014), Lili, born Einar, is in a happy marriage with fellow painter Gerda (rising star Alicia Vikander, Ex Machina) in this drama set in 1920s Copenhagen. When Gerda’s model doesn't show up for one of her portrait sessions, Einar takes her place, dressing in women's clothes for the first time, discovering a brand-new identity as Lili, and subsequently creating a new, complex dimension to the marriage. Matthias Schoenaerts (Rust and Bone), Sebastian Koch (Black Book), and Ben Whishaw (Skyfall) also star in this beautifully lensed portrait of one of the pi

Spotlight
spotlight_tkt_thumb.jpg
Director Thomas McCarthy (The Station Agent, MVFF 2003) and an impeccable ensemble cast recreate the true events of 2001, when The Boston Globe broke open the massive child molestation scandal within the local Catholic Archdioceseand the shocking Church cover-up that kept it a dirty secret for decades. Spurred by the paper’s new (and first Jewish) editor, Marty Baron (Liev Schreiber), Walter “Robby” Robinson (Michael Keaton) leads a crack team of investigative journalists (Rachel McAdams, Mark Ruffalo, and Brian d’Arcy James), who uncover a story of corruption and betrayal beyond their wildest imaginations. In a Church-dominated town, where parishioners equate their priests with God, their investigation is tantamount to blasphemy, and the Church will do everything in its power (of which it has plenty) to stop it in its tracks. Spotlight is a riveting, heart-wrenching drama that reminds us how the pen truly can be mightier than the sword.

The Assassin (Nie Yinniang)
theassassin_tkt_thumb.jpg
Legendary Taiwanese filmmaker Hou Hsiao-hsien (Cannes 2015 Best Director winner) returns with his first feature in eight yearsan intimate, ninth century-set wuxia epic that blends period drama, political intrigue, and inter-generational storytelling elevated to dizzying heights. Yinniang (Millennium Mambo’s Shu Qi) excels in the art of killing. An act of mercy angers her handler, who punishes the beautiful assassin with a special assignment to dispatch a powerful governor (Chang Chen). But what exactly is the backstory between the killer and her target? And who’s that mysterious masked woman in the frame? Like his masterpiece Flowers of Shanghai, Hou’s latest is filled with stunning imagery, lush set design, and the sort of elegant tracking shots that sends cinephiles to the moonand beyond. While The Assassin has its share of lightning-fast fights, it prizes atmosphere as much as action in a way that transcends the genre. In a word

My Mother (Mia madre)
mymother_tkt_thumb.jpg
Award-winning director Nanni Moretti’s (Dear Diary, MVFF 1994) My Mother is a semi-autobiographical drama starring Moretti’s frequent muse Margherita Buy as a filmmaker beset by personal trials, most notably her mother’s failing health and a lead actor (John Turturro as Huggins) who can’t act or remember his lines. My Mother teases with perception as the narrative moves between memory, dream, movie, and life. As Margherita’s life unravels, she tells her actors, “Play the character but stand next to the character as you.” Though confusing, her directorial note functions as the underlying philosophy of My Mothera “film within a film” in which the storyline echoes aspects of Moretti’s life from his own profession, to his mother’s as a dying scholar of ancient languages. After flubbing a line in Margherita’s film, Huggins rails against being an actor and shouts, “I want out of here, man. I want to get back to reality.” The question is, which reality?
