Today is the last day for our Spring Listener Survey. We’ll give away a Smooth Landing or Classical Guest DJ-ship to one respondent, drawn at random. See whqr.org for details. Here are some nuggets from the Survey so far. Anonymous wrote: “Coastline is unremarkable, needs some life breathed in. . .1A is a terrible successor to Dianne Rheem. Josh the host is ateurish, sometimes unnecessarily combative, and rudely uninformed. (Opinionated tone and insterted noise does not substitute for intelligence).” A different Anonymous wrote: “CoastLine has an excellent moderator.”

Cinematique will be taking a few weeks off while The Jewish Film Festival takes place at Thalian Hall. We’ll be back May 22 with new films. More information coming soon.

From the director of The Queen and Philomena comes the story of Florence Foster Jenkins (Meryl Streep), an inspiring true story of the American socialite and amateur operatic soprano who pursued her dream of becoming a singer.

When a member of a popular New York City improv troupe gets cast on a hit TV show, the rest of the group - all best friends - start to realize that not everyone is going to make it after all.

Appropriate for their big screen debut from a popular British sitcom, Edina and Patsy (Jennifer Saunders, writer, and Joanna Lumley) are still oozing glitz and glamour, living the high life they are accustomed to; shopping, drinking and clubbing their way around London's trendiest hotspots. Blamed for a major incident at an uber fashionable launch party, they become entangled in a media storm and are relentlessly pursued by the paparazzi.

Woody Allen's bittersweet romance Café Society follows Bronx-born Bobby Dorfman (Jesse Eisenberg) through the high society nightclub life in New York filled with the well-known names of Steve Carrel, Kristen Stewart and Blake Lively.

Centering on events in the lives of Bobby's colorful Bronx family, the film is a glittering valentine to the movie stars, socialites, playboys, debutantes, politicians, and gangsters who epitomized the excitement and glamour of the 1930’s.

Deep in the forests of the Pacific Northwest, isolated from society, a devoted father (Viggo Mortensen) dedicates his life to transforming his six young children into extraordinary adults. But when a tragedy strikes the family, they are forced to leave this self-created paradise and begin a journey into the outside world that challenges his idea of what it means to be a parent and brings into question everything he's taught them. Writer and director, Matt Ross delivers this family drama alongside of humor and sentiment.

(Rated R, Runtime 119 minutes)

A hilarious, touching crowd-pleaser, “Hunt For The Wilderpeople” from Taika Waititi reminds us about the journey that growing up is (at any age) and those who help us along the way.

Ewan McGregor and Naomie Harris star in this gripping adaptation of John le Carré's best-selling thriller about an ordinary English couple who find themselves caught up in international intrigue. While on vacation in Marrakech, an ordinary English couple befriend a flamboyant and charismatic Russian who, unbeknownst to them, is a kingpin money launderer for the Russian mafia.
