MAGGIE_Press_1Set on a picturesque farm in the Midwest, Maggie is a moving and visually stunning film that takes a quietly observant yet thrilling approach to the zombie genre. Hobson examines the interpersonal relationships that exist amidst the gore, and both Schwarzenegger and Breslin give thoughtful performances as a father-daughter team refusing to give in to the chaos around them.

Wondrous Boccaccio Directed By: Paolo Taviani and Vittorio Taviani

Set against the backdrop of a 14th century, black plague-stricken Florence, ten young men and women escape to a country estate where they spend their days telling stories of love, fate, and resurrection. From legendary Italian filmmaking brothers Paolo and Vittorio Taviani, directors of the Palme d’Or winning Fiorile and Golden Bear award-winning Caesar Must Die, Wondrous Boccaccio is a visual and poetic tribute to the stories that emerged from one of the darkest periods in Italian history, and the imaginations that quietly fueled them.

(Dir. David Oelhoffen)  “Vigo Mortensen’s anchors this film with a fiercely understated French-language performance, the score by  masters Nick Cave and Warren Ellis, and the beautifully stark backdrop of Algeria’s mountain ranges, Far From Men transplants a classic western tale into an unstable war-zone to tell the story of one man’s sense of personal duty in light of the realities of the world around him.”
