A gripping mix of friendship, violence and redemption erupts in the contemporary South in this adaptation of the novel by Larry Brown (Big Bad Love), celebrated at once for its grit and its deeply moving core. Joe brings Academy Award winner Nicolas Cage (Leaving Las Vegas) back to his indie roots in the title role as the hard-living, hot-tempered ex-con Joe Ransom, who is just trying to dodge his instincts for trouble—until he meets Gary (Tye Sheridan, Mud, The Tree of Life), a hard-luck kid who awakens in him a fierce and tender-hearted protector.

In the romantic drama The Lunchbox, middle-class housewife Ila (Nimrat Kaur) is trying once again to add some spice to her marriage, this time through her cooking. She desperately hopes that a new recipe will finally arouse some kind of reaction from her neglectful husband. She prepares a special lunchbox to be delivered to him at work, but, unbeknownst to her, it is mistakenly delivered to another office worker, Saajan (Irrfan Khan, Life of Pi), a lonely man on the verge of retirement. Curious about the lack of reaction from her husband, Ila puts a little note in the following day's lunchbox, in the hopes of getting to the bottom of the mystery. This begins a series of lunchbox notes between Saajan and Ila, and the mere comfort of communicating with a stranger anonymously soon evolves into an unexpected friendship. Gradually, their notes become little confessions about their loneliness, memories, regrets, fears, and even small joys. In the big city of Mumbai that so often crushes hopes and dreams, Ila and Saajan become lost in a virtual relationship that could jeopardize both their realities. Co-written and directed by Ritesh Batra. Official Web Site

Academy Award winner Jim Broadbent (Iris) and Lindsay Duncan (Mansfield Park) give exquisite performances as Nick and Meg, a long-married British couple revisiting Paris for the first time since their honeymoon in an attempt to rekindle their relationship. During a two-day escapade, diffident, wistful Nick and demanding, take-charge Meg careen from harmony to disharmony to resignation and back again as they take stock of half a lifetime of deep tenderness—and even deeper regret. A surprise invitation from Nick's old friend Morgan (Jeff Goldblum), an amusingly boorish American academic with a fancy Parisian address, soon leads them to an unexpectedly hopeful vision of what their love and marriage might still become. This magically buoyant, bittersweet comedy-drama is a new peak in the ongoing collaboration between Notting Hill director Roger Michell and screenwriter Hanif Kureishi (Venus, The Mother).

Who is Vivian Maier? Now considered one of the 20th century's greatest street photographers, Vivian Maier was a loner who worked as a nanny most of her life, and shot photos constantly everywhere she went, taking over 100,000 photographs that went unseen during her lifetime. Amateur historian John Maloof bought the contents of her storage locker by chance at an auction, and soon became obsessed with trying to learn more about the mysterious recluse. The first trace he was able to find of her was her recent obituary. Since then Maloof has organized many acclaimed exhibits of her work, and is crusading to put this prolific photographer into the history books. In Finding Vivian Maier, Maloof and co-director Charlie Siskel's captivating documentary, Maier's strange and riveting life and art are revealed through never-before-seen photographs, films, and interviews with dozens who thought they knew her.

Only Lovers Left Alive is the best film in years by writer/director Jim Jarmusch (Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai, Mystery Train, Down By Law). Stylish, hip and droll, it's the nocturnal tale of two vampires in love, and their quest for amusement and an untainted supply of blood. Tom Hiddleston (Loki in Marvel's The Avengers and the Thor films) and the ageless Tilda Swinton (I Am Love, Michael Clayton) play Adam and Eve, vampires who have been lovers for centuries. He's a reclusive underground musician hiding out in the ruins of Detroit; she's a lover of knowledge residing in Tangier—but they're soulmates. Adam's music is eagerly received by the zombies (i.e. humans) such as rock promoter Ian (Anton Yelchin, Star Trek), whose adulation threatens his need for solitude. Sensing Adam's growing angst and despair, Eve makes a transatlantic journey to see him, despite the difficulties of travelling by day. Their joyful reunion is interrupted by the uninvited arrival of Eve's carefree and uncontrollable little sister Ava (Mia Wasikowska, Alice in Wonderland, The Kids Are All Right), who brings trouble in her wake. Driven by sensual photography, trance-like music by Jarmusch's band Squrl, and sly humor, Only Lovers Left Alive is a hypnotic meditation on art, science, memory, and the mysteries of everlasting love. With John Hurt and Jeffrey Wright. Official Web Site

In the 1960s and '70s, grindhouses were theaters that played back-to-back movies exploiting sex, violence and other extreme subject matter. In their loving tribute to the heyday of exploitation films, directors Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez deliver a double feature of exciting thrillers: Tarantino's Death Proof stars Kurt Russell as a scarred, diabolical killer who stalks foxy women from behind the wheel of his muscle car; Rodriguez's Planet Terror stars Rose McGowan as a go-go dancer whose leg was ripped from her body during a roadside attack—and replaced with a machine gun which she uses to kill zombies!

A story of power and plotting, Richard II is the first of Shakespeare's four plays about the House of Lancaster. Richard (David Tennant) is King, ordained by God to lead his people. But he is also a man of very human weakness—a man whose vanity threatens to divide the great houses of England and drag his people into a dynastic civil war that will last 100 years. Recorded live from the stage of the Royal Shakespeare Company, the sellout production of Richard II is directed by RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran.

Writer-director John Turturro gives Woody Allen his best on-screen role in years, as an unlikely pimp. Turturro himself stars as the title character, in this hilarious yet heartfelt comedy about the endless quest for happiness through sex and love. Murray (Allen), a going-out-of-business New York bookseller, is pals with Fioranvante (Turturro), who runs a modest florist shop. When Murray's beautiful dermatologist Dr. Parker (Sharon Stone) mentions she's looking for a man to participate in a threesome with her and her equally gorgeous friend Selima (Sofia Vergara), Murray recognizes the financial potential of this proposal and sets about convincing Fioravante to consummate the deal. While Fioravante is at first understandably hesitant, he needs the cash and comes to believe that there are worse ways to make a living than by making two attention-starved women happy. Meanwhile Murray has come across an unusual second client for Fioravante: Avigal (Vanessa Paradis), the lonely widow of a revered Hasidic rabbi. Avigal's every move is watched by the suspicious and jealous Dovi (Liev Schreiber), which makes assignations with her hazardous. As Fioravante makes his rounds through the bedrooms of Dr. Parker and Selima, as well as his more chaste meetings with Avigal, Murray discovers it's not so easy to be a pimp and finds out that the clash between the secular and the Orthodox must be faced sooner or later.
