Filth

Opens Friday, May 30, 2014 Synopsis: James McAvoy stars in director Jon S.

Detective Sergeant Bruce Robertson (McAvoy) is unlike any cop on the force. A pervert, a drug addict, and an irredeemable jerk, he thinks he's in control, even as his life spirals into oblivion.

Meanwhile, the harder he tries to get a grip, the further his future seems to slip out of reach.

Closed Circuit

Now Playing Synopsis: Boy A director John Crowley teams with Dirty Pretty Things screenwriter Steven Knight for this topical thriller starring Eric Bana and Rebecca Hall star as two former lovers who encounter danger when they are both assigned to the same defense team in a high-profile terrorism trial. It was a typical morning in London when a powerful bomb exploded in the heart of the city. After the smoke cleared, sole surviving terrorist cell member Farroukh Erdogan (Denis Moschitto) was quickly taken into custody. As preparations for his trial begin, however, the government's plan to use classified evidence to prosecute the suspect leads the Attorney General (Jim Broadbent) to appoint Special Advocate Claudia Simmons-Howe (Hall) to the case. Claudia's unique position as a government-approved defense lawyer ensures that she can review the top-secret evidence, and advocate for full disclosure during the inevitable "closed" session portion of the trial. Once Claudia has reviewed the evidence, however, any communication with the defense team and the defendant himself is strictly forbidden. Later, When Erdogan's lawyer dies just before the trial begins, Claudia's driven ex-lover, attorney Martin Rose (Bana), takes his place. Realizing that their previous affair could jeopardize their involvement with the case, Claudia and Martin vow to keep the relationship a well-guarded secret. In time, however, Martin's exhaustive investigation reveals evidence of a shocking conspiracy that threatens to consume them both. Ciarán Hinds and Julia Stiles also star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Eric Bana, Rebecca Hall, Ciarán Hinds, Riz Ahmed, Anne-Marie Duff Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
