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.

A budding novelist named Kelly (Melanie Lynskey), her film director husband Jeff (writer/director Joe Swanberg) and their two-year-old son live a peaceful existence in Chicago. But when Jeff's irresponsible younger sister, Jenny (Anna Kendrick, Up in the Air), comes to live with them after a breakup, things start to change. Jenny begins a rocky relationship with a baby sitter-cum-pot dealer (Mark Webber), and she and a friend, Carson (Lena Dunham, "Girls"), instigate an evolution in Kelly's life, as her career and her relationship with her husband begin to grow in new directions. But are they welcome ones? In Happy Christmas, filmmaker Swanberg (Drinking Buddies) explores both sibling relationships and the choices women face in young families. Using his unique improvisational technique, Swanberg creates a dramatic experience that results in a natural, relatable peek into his characters' lives, filled with an engaging warmth and the actors' own natural sense of humor.

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

Unforgiven is a beautifully made, modern classic that "summarizes everything I feel about the Western," director/star Clint Eastwood told the Los Angeles Times. Eastwood and Morgan Freeman play retired outlaws who pick up their guns one last time to collect a bounty put on the head of a violent outlaw and killer-for-hire (Richard Harris). And Gene Hackman is a lawman of sly charm... and chilling brutality. Unforgiven rode off with four Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Director, Supporting Actor (Hackman) and Editing (Joel Cox).

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. Directed by Lasse Hallström (Chocolat, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen). Official Web Site

Mood Indigo is a true return to form for filmmaker Michel Gondry (The Science of Sleep, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind), exploring the vast landscape of human emotion and imagination. Set in a charmingly surreal Paris, this tragicomic, visionary and romantic love story stars Romain Duris (Populaire, The Beat That My Heart Skipped) as wealthy bachelor Colin, whose hobbies include developing his pianocktail (a cocktail-making piano) and devouring otherworldly dishes prepared by his trusty chef Nicolas (Omar Sy, The Intouchables). When Colin learns that his best friend Chick (Gad Elmaleh, The Valet), a fellow acolyte of the philosopher Jean-Sol Partre, has a new American girlfriend, our lonely hero attends a friend's party in hopes of falling in love himself. He soon meets Chloé (Audrey Tautou, Amélie, Coco Before Chanel) and, before they know it, they're dancing to Duke Ellington and plunging headfirst into a romance that Gondry rapturously depicts as only he can. But their whirlwind courtship is tested when an unusual illness plagues Chloe and a flower begins to grow in her lungs. Official Web Site

"I'm going to kill you, Father." In Calvary, an inventive mystery-drama with a pitch-black heart, Father James (Brendan Gleeson, In Bruges) is a good priest who is threatened in the confessional by a mysterious member of his parish. Although he continues to comfort his own fragile daughter Fiona (Kelly Reilly) and reach out to help members of his church with their various scurrilous moral—and often comic—problems, he feels sinister and troubling forces closing in, and begins to wonder if he will have the courage to face his own personal Calvary. Also starring Chris O'Dowd. From John Michael McDonagh, the acclaimed writer and director of The Guard. Official Web Site

In the bawdy adventure comedy Land Ho!, Mitch (Earl Lynn Nelson) and Colin (Paul Eenhoorn) were close friends back when they were brothers-in-law married to two sisters, but they drifted apart as Mitch and his wife divorced and Colin's wife died. Now Mitch, a retired surgeon who can't quite admit to being retired, recruits a reluctant Colin on a holiday to Iceland—just the ticket to perk up a pair who have endured their share of disappointments but still have a spirit of adventure in them. As their rented SUV pilots them deeper into the Icelandic hinterlands, Colin and Mitch encounter fellow adventurers, get on each others' nerves, play movie trivia games, get lost on the moonless moors, grouse about their sons, smoke pot, speak of regrets, and marvel at Iceland's otherworldly beauty. For both men, aging, loneliness, and disenchantment are silent adversaries to be countered with gumption. Official Web Site

Bursting with the magnetic personality and irresistible Afrobeat music of Nigerian superstar Fela Kuti, Finding Fela tells the story of his remarkable music and life, social and political impact, and lasting legacy.

With revealing interviews and an abundance of exciting performance footage from the 1970s and 1980s, the film creates a vivid portrait of the man who became a worldwide phenomenon, a beacon of postcolonial resistance against repressive regimes, whose influence continues to spread today. Also featuring Bill T. Jones and scenes from the hit Broadway show Fela! Directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney (Taxi to the Dark Side, Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room, We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks, The Armstrong Lie).
