Now Playing Synopsis: Gia Coppola makes her feature directorial debut with this drama adapted from a series of short stories by James Franco, who stars as a soccer coach in the titular California town where bored teens begin to stir up trouble. April (Emma Roberts) is a virtuous soccer star whose impressive athleticism masks a deep-rooted timidity. Admired from afar by sensitive artist Teddy (Jack Kilmer), April earns some extra cash babysitting for her single coach Mr. B. (Franco), whose affection for his star player leads the pair into a risky affair. Meanwhile, Teddy continues to perform community service as the result of a DUI he received while stirring up trouble with his unpredictable friend Fred (Nat Wolff), whose seduction of promiscuous outsider Emile (Zoe Levin) begins to turn volatile as April gradually starts to respond to the affections of her not-so-secret admirer. Val Kilmer, Claudia Levy, and Chris Messina co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Emma Roberts, James Franco, Jack Kilmer, Nat Wolff Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review

First Position

Now Playing Synopsis: Six dance students follow the same dream against long odds in this documentary from filmmaker Bess Kargman. The Youth America Grand Prix is a competition for young ballet students between the ages of 9 and 19; it's one of the world's leading proving grounds for new talent, and most major dance companies and schools pay close attention to who fares well in the annual contest. Each year, thousands of dancers enter, but only three hundred make it into the finals, held in New York City. First Position follows six youngsters who've entered the Grand Prix, and their lives and backgrounds offer a glimpse into the wide range of competitors. Sixteen-year-old Joan Sebastian Zamora is from Colombia, and his parents have sent him to America to train with a top instructor; he has to deal with his family's high expectations as well as those of the judges. Miko Fogarty is a 12-year-old from Palo Alto, CA, who dreams of becoming a professional; her parents believe in her, but also want her younger brother to follow in her footsteps, whether he's willing or not. Fourteen-year-old Michaela DePrince was born in Sierra Leone, and is still haunted by memories of the bloody civil war there; she's since been adopted by a couple in Philadelphia, and dreams of becoming a star in a field where African-Americans are still not well-represented. Rebecca Houseknecht is a 17-year-old from Maryland who looks like a star, and she hopes to skip college and go directly into professional dance. Aran Bell is eleven and the son of a military doctor; he's determined to learn, and while his family is in Italy, he travels hours each day for lessons with a former star of the Ballet Marseilles. And Gaya Bommer Yemini, a close friend of Aran who is also eleven, is the daughter of Nadine Bommer, a well-respected Israeli choreographer, who hopes to follow her mother into the world of ballet. First Position received its world premiere at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi Cast: Miko, Jules Fogarty, Joan Sebastian Zamora, Aran Bell, Michaela DePrince Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
