More Everyone knows that John Wilkes Booth assassinated President Lincoln but not many people know about the other co-conspirators involved. The Conspirator covers in detail the fascinating trial of the only female charged in the President’s murder. By the end of the movie you will wonder, did the murder of one of our most popular presidents overshadow the railroading of an innocent woman or was justice served?

Bring some tissues and some smiles for this moving piece of art.

More Before TWIN PEAKS there was this… a wonderfully bizarre and intense trip down the rabbit hole from legendary writer/director (and co-creator of Twin Peaks) David Lynch. The film is full of more twists and turns than a pretzel factory but it’s the late great Dennis Hopper who steals the show as Frank Booth, a psychopath like no other fueled by Pabst Blue Ribbon and amyl nitrite. Believe me; you have never seen a villain like this before. Hopper’s performance is one for the ages and worth the price of admission alone. Get ready! Ahhhahaaaaaa!!!!

More Rabbit Hole is one of my favorite plays by favorite playwright, David-Lindsay-Abaire. When I saw it was being adapted for the big screen, I was excited and somewhat skeptical. The story follows Becca (Nicole Kidman) and Howie Corbett (Aaron Eckhart) as they deal with the tragic death of their 4-year-old son, Danny. The play is full of intense emotions and relies on a stellar ensemble cast. The film relies on Kidman and Eckhart to bring their A-game, and boy do they deliver! This film will make you cry, but it leaves you with a glimmer of hope, that down some cosmic rabbit hole, there is life and love and hope after tragedy.

Pain & Gain

More Michael Bay takes a break from his billion dollar blockbusters to direct what's sure to be one of the most bizarre true stories to hit the silver screen, Pain & Gain. Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson star alongside an all-star cast of costars including Anthony Mackie, Ed Harris, Tony Shalhoub and newcomer Bar Paly. Part action, part comedy, part crime thriller, Pain & Gain will kidnap you and take you on a wild ride. But I promise it'll all be worth it in the end, because remember: no pain, no gain.

Escape From Alcatraz

More No one has ever escaped from Alcatraz... And no one ever will! This 1979 classic staring Clint Eastwood highlights the true story of one of the greatest prison escapes ever attempted. Escape From Alcatraz paved the way for movies like Shawshank Redemption and The Rock starring Sean Connery. The difference between Andy Dufresne and Frank Morris in Escape From Alctraz is instead of using a pick hammer to escape, they use spoons. What made this escape more difficult was the prison’s location on an island 1.5 miles from the San Francisco shore. Imagine putting in all that effort to break out of prison just to have a mile and a half swim to freedom. These three men defied all odds and pulled off the greatest prison escape in modern history. Now tune in to see how they made history.

More People forget that Cher won an Oscar for a fantastic performance as a widowed wife in this 80’s Romantic Comedy. Though the real acting credit should go to her one-handed love interest played by a young Nicolas change. As much a love letter to New York City (specifically Italian Brooklyn Heights) as it is to the opera “La bohème” – this movie is sure to make your mouth laugh and your heart burst.
