A white author, Nerburn is summoned by Dan, a Lakota Elder who asks him to write a book about his life and his people’s history. Feeling unqualified, unworthy and reluctant he turns the offer down but events conspire to draw him back in. After a blundering false start, Nerburn is all but kidnapped and taken on a road trip around the contemporary Native American landscape. Stopping off at key landmarks, Dan and his companion, Grover, try to educate him in their ways, encouraging him to see and write the story in his own way without falling prey to white men’s guilt-ridden cliches of glorifying an indigenous race. The echoes of the great American genocide permeate throughout.
By the time the end credits arrive, the characters of this modest, crowdfunded feature are practically unforgettable.

Lee Hayden (Sam Elliott) is an aging Western icon with a golden voice, but his best performances are decades behind him. He spends his days reliving old glories and smoking too much weed with his former-co-star-turned-dealer, Jeremy (Nick Offerman), until a surprise cancer diagnosis brings his priorities into sharp focus. He soon strikes up an exciting, contentious relationship with stand-up comic Charlotte (Laura Prepon), and he attempts to reconnect with his estranged daughter, Lucy (Krysten Ritter), all while searching for one final role to cement his legacy.
With Elliott front and center of every scene, “The Hero” pulls off the kind of acting showcase that its fictional star can never achieve.

Join us for our third annual Big Lebowski Brew & View! The evening kicks off at 6:00 PM with a street party. We’ll have beer, wine, music and a our annual costume contest! Come as The Dude, Walter, Jesus, or whichever character strikes your fancy! Food vendors will also be available so bring your appetite. At 8:00 we’ll start the film that changed interior design forever!
Jeff Bridges plays Jeff Lebowski who insists on being called “the Dude,” a laid-back, easygoing burnout who happens to have the same name as a millionaire whose wife owes a lot of dangerous people a whole bunch of money — resulting in the Dude having his rug soiled, sending him spiraling into the Los Angeles underworld.
The Big Lebowski is a mess. But what a glorious, wonderfully-entertaining mess it is.

The Journey is the gripping account of how two men from opposite sides of the political spectrum came together to change the course of history. In 2006, amidst the ongoing, decades-long conflict in Northern Ireland, representatives from the two warring factions meet for negotiations. In one corner is Ian Paisley (Timothy Spall), the deeply conservative British loyalist; in the other is Martin McGuinness (Colm Meaney), a former Irish Republican Army leader who has devoted his life to the cause of Irish reunification. Opposites in every way, the two men at first seem to have little chance of ever finding common ground. But over the course of an impromptu, detour-filled car ride through the Scottish countryside, each begins to see the other less as an enemy, and more as an individual—a breakthrough that promises to at last bring peace to the troubled region.
Wonderfully acted, and just whimsical enough to make this fantasy riff on the Irish Peace Process go down easily.
