Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far On Foot.Trailer. Joaquin Phoenix. Jonah Hill. Rooney Mara. Jack Black.

After Portland slacker John Callahan [Joaquin Phoenix] nearly loses his life in a car accident, the last thing he intends to do is give up drinking. But when he reluctantly enters treatment – with encouragement from his girlfriend [Rooney Mara] and a charismatic sponsor [Jonah Hill] – Callahan discovers a gift for drawing edgy, irreverent newspaper cartoons that develop a national following and grant him a new lease on life. Based on a true story, this poignant, insightful and often funny drama about the healing power of art is adapted from Callahan’s autobiography and directed by Gus Van Sant. Jack Black, Carrie Brownstein, Beth Ditto and Kim Gordon also star.

Mary is searching for a new way of living, and an authenticity that is denied her by the rigid hierarchies of the day.

Una. Trailer. Rooney Mara. Ben Mendelsohn. Riz Ahmed. Ruby Stokes.

A psychological thriller with elements of a revenge plot, this intense character-driven film is rooted in its performances. Rooney Mara (also at the Festival in Lion and The Secret Scripture) is the titular Una, and Ben Mendelsohn is Ray, the neighbour who sexually assaulted her when she was 13. A decade later, Una tracks Ray down in search of answers — but she doesn’t find the ones she’s searching for. Uncomfortable with the path she’s set out on, but unable to change course, Una must face the fact that Ray is now, in many ways, a different person from the man who abused her. But he still refuses to accept responsibility, and her anger has not abated.
