Lady Bird. Trailer. Saoirse Ronan. Laurie Metcalf. Tracy Letts. Lucas Hedges. Lois Smith.

In LADY BIRD, writer and director Greta Gerwig reveals herself to be a bold new cinematic voice with her directorial debut, excavating both the humor and pathos in the turbulent bond between a mother and her teenage daughter. Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson [Saoirse Ronan] fights against but is exactly like her wildly loving, deeply opinionated and strong-willed mom [Laurie Metcalf], a nurse working tirelessly to keep her family afloat after Lady Bird’s father [Tracy Letts] loses his job. Set in Sacramento, California in 2002, amidst a rapidly shifting American economic landscape, Lady Bird is an affecting look at the relationships that shape us, the beliefs that define us, and the unmatched beauty of a place called home.

JACKIE is a searing and intimate portrait of one of the most important and tragic moments in American history, seen through the eyes of the iconic First Lady, then Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy [Natalie Portman]. JACKIE places us in her world during the days immediately following her husband’s assassination. Known for her extraordinary dignity and poise, here we see a psychological portrait of the First Lady as she struggles to maintain her husband’s legacy and the world of “Camelot” that they created and loved so well.

20th Century Women. Trailer. Annette Bening. Elle Fanning. Greta Gerwig. Lucas Jade Zumann. Billy Crudup.

Mike Mills’s texturally and behaviorally rich new comedy seems to keep redefining itself as it goes along, creating a moving group portrait of particular people in a particular place [Santa Barbara] at a particular moment in the 20th century [1979], one lovingly attended detail at a time. The great Annette Bening, in one of her very best performances, is Dorothea, a single mother raising her teenage son, Jamie [Lucas Jade Zumann], in a sprawling bohemian house, which is shared by an itinerant carpenter [Billy Crudup] and a punk artist with a Bowie haircut [Greta Gerwig] and frequented by Jamie’s rebellious friend Julie [Elle Fanning]. 20th Century Women is warm, funny, and a work of passionate artistry. An A24 release.

Wiener-Dog. Trailer. Ellen Burstyn. Kieran Culkin. Julie Delpy. Danny DeVito. Zosia Mamet.

tFrom director Todd Solondz, WIENER-DOG is a dark, starkly funny story of a single dog and the many different people she touches over her short lifetime. Man’s best friend starts out teaching a young boy some contorted life lessons before being taken in by a compassionate vet tech named Dawn Wiener. Dawn reunites with someone from her past and sets off on a road trip. After leaving Dawn, Wiener-Dog encounters a floundering film professor, as well as an embittered elderly woman and her needy granddaughter—all longing for something more. Solondz’s perversely dark comedy offers an appallingly honest look at the American experience, brought to life by its all-star cast.

Mistress America. Trailer. Noah Baumbach. Greta Gerwig. Lola Kirke.

Eden. Trailer. Mia Hansen-Løve.

Based on the experiences of Hansen-Løve’s brother [and co-writer] Sven, the film follows Paul [Félix de Givry], a teenager in the underground scene of early-nineties Paris. With a parallel storyline featuring Daft Punk, the film’s described as “an intoxicating cocktail of euphoria and melancholy as alive as any nightclub.”

In the 90’s, French electronic music is developing at a fast pace. In this exiting period, Paul is taking his first steps as a DJ. With his best friend, they create a duo, “Cheers” and quickly find their audience. They will soon be caught up in a euphoric and short-lived rise and decline. Blinded by his passion, Paul will forget to build his life.

Eden also tells the story of the “French touch” generation, from 1992 to nowadays.
