The Art of Self-Defense (June 21, 2019)

JUMP BACK TO TOP



Director: Riley Stearns

Starring: Jesse Eisenberg, Alessandro Nivola, Imogen Poots, Leland Orser

Synopsis:


"A dark comedy set in the world of karate. The film centers on Casey (Jesse Eisenberg), who is attacked at random on the street and enlists in a local dojo led by a charismatic and mysterious Sensei (Alessandro Nivola), in an effort to learn how to defend himself. What he uncovers is a sinister world of fraternity, violence and hypermasculinity and a woman (Imogen Poots) fighting for her place in it. Casey undertakes a journey, both frightening and darkly funny, that will place him squarely in the sights of his enigmatic new mentor."






Wild Nights with Emily (April 12, 2019)

JUMP BACK TO TOP



Director: Madeleine Olnek

Starring: Molly Shannon, Susan Ziegler, Amy Seimetz, Brett Gelman, Jackie Monahan, Kevin Seal, Dana Melanie, Sasha Frolova, Lisa Haas, Al Sutton

Synopsis:


"In the late 1880s Emily Dickinson is writing prolifically, baking gingerbread, and enjoying a passionate, lifelong affair with her friend and sister-in-law Susan ... yes this is the iconic American poet, popularly thought to have been a reclusive spinster.

Beloved comic Molly Shannon leads in this humorous yet bold reappraisal of Dickinson, informed by her private letters. While seeking publication of some of the 1,775 poems written during her lifetime, Emily (Shannon) finds herself facing a troupe of male literary gatekeepers too confused by her genius to take her work seriously. Instead her work attracts the attention of an ambitious woman editor, who also sees Emily as a convenient cover for her own role in buttoned-up Amherst's most bizarre love triangle.

A timely critique of how women's history is rewritten, WILD NIGHTS WITH EMILY remains vibrant, irreverent and tender--a perhaps closer depiction of Emily Dickinson's real life than anything seen before."







The Rook: Season 1 (Summer 2019)

JUMP BACK TO TOP



Director: Kari Skogland, China Moo-Young, Sunu Gonera, Rebecca Johnson (various episodes)

Starring: Emma Greenwell, Joely Richardson, Olivia Munn, Adrian Lester

Synopsis:


"THE ROOK tells the story of Myfanwy Thomas (Emma Greenwell), a woman who wakes up in London with no memory of who she is and no explanation for the circle of dead bodies around her. When Myfanwy discovers she's a high ranking official in Britain's secret service for people with paranormal abilities, she'll have to navigate the dangerous and complex world of the agency to uncover who wiped her memory and why."






Hanna: Season 1 (March 29, 2019 - Amazon Prime)

JUMP BACK TO TOP



Director: Sarah Adina Smith (premiere episode)

Starring: Esme Creed-Miles, Joel Kinnaman, Mireille Enos

Synopsis:


"In equal parts high-concept thriller and coming-of-age drama, HANNA follows the journey of an extraordinary young girl raised in the forest, as she evades the relentless pursuit of an off-book CIA agent and tries to unearth the truth behind who she is."






Killing Eve: Season 2 (April 7, 2019 - BBC America and AMC)

JUMP BACK TO TOP



Starring: Sandra Oh, Jodie Comer, Fiona Shaw

Synopsis:


"Starring Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer, Killing Eve centers on two women: Eve (Oh) is a bored, whip-smart, pay-grade MI5 security officer whose desk-bound job doesn’t fulfill her fantasies of being a spy. Villanelle (Comer) is a mercurial, talented killer who clings to the luxuries her violent job affords her. Penned by Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag) and based on the novellas by Luke Jennings, Killing Eve will follow these two women, equally obsessed with each other, as they go head to head in an epic game of cat and mouse."
