Dear White People

Opens Friday, Oct 17, 2014 Synopsis: A satirical portrait of race relations in early 21st Century America, writer/director Justin Simien's playfully perceptive feature debut tells the story of a bi-racial Winchester University student whose controversial radio show sparks a media frenzy of epic proportions. When Samanta White begins her radio program by declaring that white people will now be required to have two black friends in order to avoid appearing racist (and that drug dealers don't count), she immediately catches the attention of the all-black residential hall that is being forced out of existence due to diversification. Subsequently elected president of the hall, Samantha subsequently becomes the subject of a reality show that deals with racial issues. Meanwhile, the Winchester University's all-white student newspaper staff mistakenly assumes that young black outcast Lionel Higgins is an expert on black culture, and recruits him to report on the brewing controversy. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Tyler James Williams, Tessa Thompson, Teyonah Parris, Brandon Bell, Kyle Gallner Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review

The Best of Me

Opens Friday, Oct 17, 2014 Synopsis: 20-once years after being torn apart by forces beyond their control, two lovers who have never forgotten one another get a second chance at happiness in this romantic drama from bestselling author Nicholas Sparks. Dawson (Luke Bracey) and Amanda (Liana Liberato) were just teenagers when they fell hopelessly and helplessly in love. Unfortunately for them, it just wasn't meant to be - at least not then. Two decades later, in the wake of a mutual friend's death, Dawson (James Marsden) and Amanda (Michelle Monaghan) are reunited as adults. Their passion still burns as bright as ever, too, though just when it seems as if their happy ever after is finally within reach, Dawson and Amanda discover that the very same threat that separated them in youth has returned stronger, and more determined to divide them than ever before. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Michelle Monaghan, James Marsden, Luke Bracey, Liana Liberato, Caroline Goodall, Sebastian Arcelus, Jon Tenney, Gerald McRaney Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
