Nominated for six Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Actor (Matthew McConaughey) and, and Best Supporting Actor (Jared Leto), Dallas Buyers Club tells the story of real-life Texan Ron Woodroof, whose free-wheeling life was overturned in 1985 when he was diagnosed as HIV-positive.
Millions know their voices, but no one knows their names. In his compelling new film Twenty Feet From Stardom, award-winning director Morgan Neville shines a spotlight on the untold true story of the backup singers behind some of the greatest musical legends of the 21st century. Triumphant and heartbreaking in equal measure, the film is both a tribute to the unsung voices who brought shape and style to popular music and a reflection on the conflicts, sacrifices and rewards of a career spent harmonizing with others.
Much Ado About Nothing is one of the season's most well received films, both critically and with audiences. Director Joss Whedon's (THE AVENGERS) sumptuously shot movie is a modern adaptation on Shakespeare's timeless classic, featuring a wonderful ensemble cast comprised largely of Whedon's regulars. In this rendition of one of Shakespeare's most beloved plays Claudio (Fran Kranz) and Benedick (Alexis Denisof ) have just returned to Messina after a successful campaign abroad.
