Men, Women and Children


Writer/director Jason Reitman:
“So under the deceptively inaccurate veil of secrecy, we use the internet to explore who we are. Are we afraid? Are we lonely? Do we want to be held or would we rather watch people be held? These are the questions that interest me. This is why I made this film.”

The Two Faces of January


Writer/director Hossein Amini:
"For [Patricia Highsmith], crime stories were a way of exploring human psychology and identity. Her plots kept us thrilled and entertained while all the time she was digging deep into our weaknesses, human frailties and the secret sides of ourselves we’d rather hide."

Art and Craft


Directors Sam Cullman & Jennifer Grausman:
"When The New York Times published an article about Mark Landis, one of the most prolific art forgers in U.S. history, we were hooked from the start by its unusual premise: a talented and seemingly inexhaustible art forger who isn't in it for the money."

The Skeleton Twins

"When we cut to a wide shot of Milo holding Maggie tightly as they slow dance like high school seniors in love, surrounded by light and magic and a weird dancing jellyfish extra, I thought 'I think we have a movie moment on our hands.'"

Jimi: All Is By My Side


Writer/director John Ridley:
“What I loved about the story was that it was self-contained rather than a sprawl. It focused on a finite aspect of an extraordinary life. Its internal narrative defined Jimi as a person rather than just as a rock icon.”

Hector and the Search for Happiness


Director/co-writer Peter Chelsom:
"Casting Hector was daunting: I needed a cross between the wisdom of an established psychiatrist and the naivety of Tintin. It came in the form of Simon Pegg. He has such a naturally child-like curiosity. He’s capable of looking at the world as if for the first time."

Last Days in Vietnam


Filmmaker Rory Kennedy:

"Our film really takes off in that last 24-hour period, so to me it’s very much a ticking clock, and I think it’s kind of a sitting-at-the-edge-of-your-seat film: What’s going to happen next?"

Take Me to the River


Director Martin Shore:
"Take Me to the River is that combination and balance of the uncomfortable comfort that allows performers the ability to go to their highest levels and push the boundaries. By mixing genres, generations, gender, race it is the ultimate and most potent combination for genius."

The Green Prince


Director Nadav Schirman:
“People say the film plays like a nail-biting thriller and reveals much about the tradecraft of espionage and handling sources. Yet for me it is mainly a story of a relationship, a relationship founded on great individual courage and trust."

Lilting


Writer/director Hong Khaou:

"Despite the subject matter, I think this is a very hopeful film. It’s difficult to convey this to people because to some it feels tonally wrong to have humor. It does work I feel, what you get is one enhances the other as if holding a magnifying glass to it."

Kill the Messenger


Director Michael Cuesta:
