Rich Hill, Missouri (population 1393). In what was once a thriving mining town, deep potholes line the gravel roads, and property tax is almost nonexistent. Andrew, 13, works on his bike, talks dreams with his dad, practices dance moves with his twin sister. He's just like a lot of American teenagers, except that his days are often also about survival. Harley, 15, lives with his grandma and eight other members of his extended family because his mom is in prison for attempted murder. Still, Harley is the first guy in the room to crack a joke and make you laugh when you least expect it. Appachey, 12, finds solace in skateboards and, despite his intelligence, has had to repeat the 6th grade, which doesn't come close to fixing what's broken in his life. Rich Hill is a documentary look inside the homes and lives of small-town, rural America, where isolated kids confront heart-breaking choices, marginalized parents struggle to survive, and, despite it all, families cling to the promise of equal opportunity and a better life some day.

Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Boyhood by writer/director Richard Linklater (director and co-writer of Before Midnight) is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (a breakthrough performance by Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason's parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha, Boyhood charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before. Snapshots of adolescence from road trips and family dinners to birthdays and graduations and all the moments in between become transcendent, set to a soundtrack spanning the years from Coldplay's "Yellow" to Arcade Fire's "Deep Blue." Boyhood is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting. It's impossible to watch Mason and his family without thinking about our own journey.

Hassan Kadam (Manish Dayal) is a culinary ingénue with the gastronomic equivalent of perfect pitch. Displaced from their native India, the Kadam family, led by Papa (Om Puri), settles in a picturesque village in the south of France to open an Indian restaurant, the Maison Mumbai. That is, until the chilly chef proprietress of Le Saule Pleureur, a Michelin-starred, classical French restaurant run by Madame Mallory (Helen Mirren), gets wind of it. Her icy protests against the new Indian restaurant a hundred feet from her own escalate to all-out war between the two establishments—until Hassan's passion for French haute cuisine and for Mme. Mallory's enchanting sous chef Marguerite (Charlotte Le Bon), combine with his mysteriously delicious talent to weave magic between their two cultures. A stimulating story of triumph over exile and blossoming with passion and heart, The Hundred-Foot Journey is a portrayal of two worlds colliding and one boy's drive to find the comfort of home, in every pot, wherever he may be.

Based on the bestselling novel by John le Carré and directed by Anton Corbijn (The American), this modern-day thriller begins when a mysterious man on the run (Grigoriy Dobrygin) arrives in Hamburg, Germany's Islamic community desperate for help. Nothing about this young man seems to add up; is he a victim or a thief or, worse still, an extremist intent on destruction? Drawn into this web of intrigue are a banker (Willem Dafoe) and a young lawyer (Rachel McAdams) determined to defend the defenseless. All the while, they are being watched by the brilliant, roguish chief of a covert German spy unit (Philip Seymour Hoffman), who fights to put the pieces together as the clock ticks. In an adrenaline-laced and heart-rending escalation of tension and collision, it's not long before he becomes everyone's most wanted man. A cerebral tale of intrigue in the vein of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, A Most Wanted Man is also deeply human, touching themes in love, rivalry and politics we live with every day. Official Web Site

Michael Winterbottom's largely improvised 2010 film The Trip took comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon—or semifictionalized versions thereof—on a restaurant tour around northern England. In this witty and incisive follow-up, Winterbottom reunites the pair for a new culinary road trip, retracing the steps of the Romantic poets' grand tour of Italy and indulging in some sparkling banter and impersonation-offs. Re-whetting our palates from the earlier film, the characters enjoy mouthwatering meals in gorgeous settings from Liguria to Capri while riffing on subjects as varied as Batman's vocal register, the artistic merits of "Jagged Little Pill," and, of course, the virtue of sequels. Winterbottom trains his camera to capture the idyllic Italian landscape and the gastronomic treasures being prepared and consumed while keeping the film centered on the crackling chemistry between the two leads. The Trip to Italy effortlessly melds the brilliant comic interplay between Coogan and Brydon into quieter moments of self-reflection, letting audiences into their insightful ruminations on the nuances of friendship and the juggling of family and career. The result is a biting portrait of modern-day masculinity. Official Web Site

Acclaimed Irish director Lenny Abrahamson creates a wildly quirky comedy about a naïve young wannabe musician, Jon (Domhnall Gleeson, About Time), who finds himself out of his depth when he joins an avant-garde rock band led by the mysterious Frank (Michael Fassbender, conquering the ultimate acting challenge), an unstable but charismatic musical savant who wears a large, round fake head with crudely painted-on features all the time—like Daniel Johnston hidden behind a cartoon smile. Frank's closest musical collaborator is the forbidding Clara (Maggie Gyllenhaal, Donnie Darko); part caretaker, part jailer, Clara is the antithesis of all things mainstream. For Jon, this is the break he's been waiting for, his chance to climb through the looking glass and into the world of artistic collaboration, real music-making, and rock 'n' roll adventure that he's always dreamed of. But does he have the talent to make it? Written by Jon Ronson (The Men Who Stare at Goats) and Peter Straughan (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), based on the memoir by Ronson.

The second film by Hiroyuki Okiura (director of Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade and animator on Ghost in the Shell and Akira) is a wonderfully expressive, beautifully hand-drawn tale that combines whimsy and kinetic humor with deeply felt emotion and drama. The last time teenager Momo saw her father before his sudden death they had a fight—and now all she has left to remember him by is an unfinished letter with only the words "Dear Momo." Moving with her mother to a remote but beautiful island, Momo at first suspects their house is haunted. She soon discovers three goblin spirits living in the attic, mischievous creatures that only she can see who, constantly hungry, create mayhem as she tries desperately to keep them hidden. But these funny monsters have a serious side and may hold the key to helping Momo discover what her father had been trying to tell her. Seven years in the making, A Letter to Momo builds to a bravura finale—a frantic chase featuring thousands of squirming, morphing ghosts and spirits that is the best cinematic flight of supernatural fancy in many years.

Ran is the twenty-seventh film from director Akira Kurosawa (Rashomon, The Seven Samurai). In its epic scale, stylistic grandeur and tragic contemplation of human destiny, it brings together the great themes and gorgeous images of the director's life work. A brilliantly conceived meditation on Shakespeare's King Lear, crossed with the history of Japan's 16th-century Civil Wars and the legend of Mori, a feudal warlord with three sons, the film's title translates as "chaos" or "turmoil." Tatsuya Nakadai stars the Great Lord Hidetora Ichimonji, an aging ruler who decides to abdicate and divide his land equally among his three sons, unleashing an intense power struggle as his sons and daughters-in-law scheme for power and revenge. A spectacular adventure punctuated by epic battle scenes, at the time of its original release Ran was the most expensive film ever made in Japan, with a visual splendor that's still breathtaking today.

Award-winning independent filmmaker Rory Kennedy (Ghosts of Abu Ghraib, Ethel) dares to reopen the books on a war that scarred our national psyche. Chronicling a story few of us know, Kennedy's potent documentary may both shock you and restore your faith in humanity. During the chaotic final days of the Vietnam War, the North Vietnamese Army closes in on Saigon as South Vietnamese resistance crumbles. The United States has only a skeleton crew of diplomats and military operatives still in the country. As Communist victory becomes inevitable and the U.S. readies to withdraw, some Americans begin to consider the certain imprisonment and possible death of their South Vietnamese allies, co-workers and friends. Meanwhile, the prospect of an official evacuation of South Vietnamese becomes terminally delayed by Congressional gridlock and the inexplicably optimistic U.S. Ambassador. With the clock ticking and the city under fire, a number of heroic Americans take matters into their own hands, engaging in unsanctioned and often makeshift operations in a desperate effort to save as many South Vietnamese lives as possible.
