Rural Arkansas: along the Mississippi River. Two teenage boys (Tye Sheridan and Jacob Lofland) discover a fugitive (Matthew McConaughey) looking to elude bounty hunters and link-up with his girlfriend (Reese Witherspoon). Skeptical but intrigued, the kids agree to help him. With a Mark Twain influenced ambiance, writer/director Jeff Nichols pieces together a stunning mosaic–having elements of poverty, youth, loss of innocence, love and violence. McConaughey gives a marvelous, award-worthy performance.
[IN THE SIMCHIK CINEMA](R)[In French with English subtitles] A down-and-out middle aged man (Patrick Huard) learns he is the father of 533 children–from numerous sperm bank donations 20 years ago–and that 142 of them have filed a class action lawsuit to determine his identity. How will he face these paternal responsibilities–plus deal with a young girlfriend (Julie Breton) who is pregnant with his 534th child? Funny and poignant with a totally winning performance by Canadian actor Huard.
(PG-13) 1968 was the year that changed the world. And for four young Aboriginal sisters from a remote mission this is the year that would change their lives forever. Around the globe, there was protest and revolution in the streets. Indigenous Australians finally secured the right to vote. There were drugs and the shock of a brutal assassination. And there was Vietnam. The sisters, Cynthia, Gail, Julie and Kay are discovered by Dave, a talent scout with a kind heart, very little rhythm but a great knowledge of soul music. Billed as Australia's answer to 'The Supremes', Dave secures the sisters their first true gig, and flies them to Vietnam to sing for the American troops. Based on a true story, THE SAPPHIRES is a triumphant celebration of youthful emotion, family and music.
