Fe de Etarras
Fe de Etarras takes place in the sweltering summer of 2010 in a small Spanish town. A peculiar, dysfunctional armed group, formed by a veteran eager to prove he is not a coward, a couple seemingly held together by ETA and a man from La Mancha who believes becoming a member of the organization or being Chuck Norris is one and the same, find themselves stuck in a flat awaiting an elusive phone call which would allow them to go into action.
The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)
From writer/director Noah Baumbach, The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) is the emotional, and comic intergenerational tale of adult siblings (Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller, and Elizabeth Marvel) contending with the long shadow their strong-willed father (Dustin Hoffman) has cast over their lives.
Frank Grillo (Kingdom, Captain America: Civil War) stars as the wheelman, a getaway driver thrust into a high stakes race-to-survive after a bank robbery goes terribly wrong. With a car full of money and his family on the line, the clock is ticking to figure out who double-crossed him and the only person he can trust... his thirteen-year-old daughter. All reasons to think fast and drive faster.
1922 is based on Stephen King's 131-page story telling of a man's confession of his wife's murder. The tale is told from from the perspective of Wilfred James, the story's unreliable narrator who admits to killing his wife, Arlette, with his son in Nebraska. But after he buries her body, he finds himself terrorized by rats and, as his life begins to unravel, becomes convinced his wife is haunting him.
