Very Good Girls

Now Playing Synopsis: Producer Naomi Foner (Running on Empty) takes the director's chair for this gentle and sensitive youth drama that follows two New York City teenagers and the events that put a strain on the bond between them, during one of the last summers of their adolescence. Lilly (Dakota Fanning) is quiet, thoughtful and introspective -- the product of two conservative parents (Ellen Barkin and Clark Gregg) who keep a tight rein on her. Gerri (Elizabeth Olsen), on the other hand, is free-spirited, uninhibited and slightly caustic -- the daughter of a left-of-center mom and dad (Demi Moore and Richard Dreyfuss) who let her do whatever, and go wherever, she pleases. Shortly before they each leave for college in the fall, the girls spend most of their time together, whiling away pleasant afternoons, but soon they both meet and fall for the same boy -- artist David (Boyd Holbrook), who sells novelty ice-cream bars at Far Rockaway Beach. He decides that he much prefers Lilly to Gerry, and Lilly loses her virginity to him. The affair grows more serious, but Lilly can't bring herself to divulge the news to Gerry for fear of breaking her heart. Not long after, an unexpected tragedy occurs in Gerry's family and forces Lilly to reach out in an attempt to console her best friend. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi Cast: Dakota Fanning, Elizabeth Olsen, Boyd Holbrook, Demi Moore, Richard Dreyfuss Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review

Love is Strange

Opens Friday, Aug 22, 2014 Synopsis: A committed gay couple finds their fledgling marriage challenged by a series of unexpected developments in this compassionate drama from writer/director Ira Sachs (Married Life, Keep the Lights On). Ben (John Lithgow) and George (Alfred Molina) have been together for nearly 40 years. When gay marriage becomes legal in New York, the happy couple decides that it's finally time to tie the knot, and declare their love for one another in front of family and friends. Though the ceremony is everything Ben and George ever could have hoped for, the happy couple's newlywed bliss is sadly short-lived when the diocese receives word of the wedding, and George is fired from his job as a music teacher at a local Catholic school. As a result, the pair is no longer able to afford the rent on the New York City apartment they've shared for two decades. In order at remain in the city while searching for a job, George moves in with his sympathetic neighbors, a pair of gay policemen (Manny Perez and Cheyenne Jackson). Meanwhile Ben attempts to make the best of the situation by moving in with his nephew's family in Brooklyn. Now, as the big event that should have brought Ben and George closer together leads only to loneliness and frustration, everyone involved find their once-comfortable lives in a hopeless state of flux. Marisa Tomei, Darren E. Burrows, and Charlie Tahan co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: John Lithgow, Alfred Molina, Marisa Tomei, Cheyenne Jackson Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
