Lucky Them

Opens Friday, May 30, 2014 Synopsis: Megan Griffiths's rueful comedy Lucky Them stars Toni Collette as Ellie Klug, a beloved rock journalist who has been covering the Seattle music scene for decades. When her boss (Oliver Platt) orders her to look into the mysterious disappearance of a onetime superstar on the scene, who also happened to be romantically involved with Ellie, the jaded writer joins forces with a wannabe documentary filmmaker (Thomas Haden Church) to hunt down the singer, who may or may not have killed himself. Complicating matters, Ellie finds herself falling in love with a young singer/songwriter who is looking for his big break. Lucky Them screened at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi Cast: Toni Collette, Thomas Haden Church, Ryan Eggold, Oliver Platt, Joanne Woodward, Ahna O'Reilly Movie Details Buy Tickets Movie Review

Inside Llewyn Davis

Now Playing Synopsis: Idealistic young folk singer Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac) struggles to make a name for himself in the Greenwich Village folk scene of the early 1960s in this fictional period drama from Joel and Ethan Coen. As the harsh winds of winter blow through the streets of New York City, the homeless singer/songwriter drifts from couch to couch in search of his big break. Feeling that he's finally burned his bridge with longtime friends and fellow folk singers Jim (Justin Timberlake) and Jean (Carey Mulligan), and convinced that his recent work on a novelty song will lead him nowhere, Llewyn hitches a ride to Chicago with the mysterious Roland Turner (John Goodman) and his taciturn valet Johnny Five (Garrett Hedlund) on a mission to audition for famed impresario Bud Grossman (F. Murray Abraham). Meanwhile, Llewyn discovers that he himself may be the biggest obstacle on his arduous road to success. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan, Justin Timberlake, John Goodman, Garrett Hedlund Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
