The Sacrament

Opens Friday, Jun 6, 2014 Synopsis: Director Ti West (House of the Devil) teams with producers Eli Roth, Christopher Woodrow, and Molly Conners for this horror film starring A.J. Bowen, Amy Seimetz, Joe Swanberg, and Kentucker Audley. The plot centers on two VICE Media reporters (Bowen and Swanberg) who, along with their cameraman (Audley), venture to a Jonestown-like, Central American compound in search of the photographer's missing, drug-addicted sister (Seimetz). Upon entering the community and meeting its charismatic leader "Father" (Gene Jones), the mood quickly shifts from celebratory to terrifying. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Amy Seimetz, Joe Swanberg, A.J.

Million Dollar Arm

Opens Friday, May 16, 2014 Synopsis: Inspired by a true story, this sports drama from director Craig Gillespie and screenwriter Thomas McCarthy follows the journey of an aging American sports agent (Jon Hamm) who attempts to save his failing business by traveling to India and recruiting a cricket pitcher to play in the Major Leagues. Fearing that the recruitment agency he owns with partner Aash (Aasif Mandvi) is about to go bust, sports agent J.B. Bernstein (Hamm) has a flash of inspiration while watching a game of Indian cricket on television: Why search for the next pitching sensation in America, where everyone else is looking, when you can find one in India? Convinced that he's onto something big, J.B. travels to Mumbai with a sharp-eyed veteran scout (Alan Arkin) and announces a nationwide contest to find India's best bowler (the pitcher in cricket). Dubbed the "Million Dollar Arm" competition, it quickly draws in 40,000 hopeful athletes in search of their big break. When 18-year-old finalists Rinku (Suraj Sharma) and Dinesh (Madhur Mittal) come out on top, J.B. arranges for them to train under famed pitching coach Tom House (Bill Paxton) until they're ready to join the big leagues. Although at first the two talented pitchers experience a serious case of culture shock, in time they begin to adjust to American customs, and their growing relationship with J.B. takes on a familial tone, offering the self-absorbed agent an important life lesson in the power of commitment. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Jon Hamm, Aasif Mandvi, Bill Paxton, Madhur Mittal, Suraj Sharma Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
