  • The Babadook

    7:00pm

    The Babadook
    "The finest and most genuinely provocative horror movie to emerge in this still very-new century. "
    - Glenn Kenny, RogerEbert.com
    "One of the strongest, most effective horror films of recent years — with awards-quality lead work from Essie Davis, and a brilliantly designed new monster who could well become the break-out spook archetype of the decade. "
    - Kim Newman, Empire
    "In an age when horror movies have mostly become lazy and toothless, here’s one with ambition and bite. "
    - Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly
    "Jennifer Kent’s maternal nightmare The Babadook is the imperial stout of recent fright flicks — it’s the one that will have you walking funny and might rip into your sleep. It’s hard to say that you’ll enjoy this film, but it’s hard not to admire it, if maybe with your eyes half shut. "
    - Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice
    "The brilliance of The Babadook, beyond Ms. Kent’s skillful deployment of the tried-and-true visual and aural techniques of movie horror, lies in its interlocking ambiguities. "
    - A.O. Scott, NY Times
  • The Homesman

    4:30pm

    The Homesman
    "The Homesman doesn’t play things safe, and that’s a welcome change. "
    - Sheila O'Malley, RogerEbert.com
    "A grand, shocking saga of a movie, The Homesman is the kind they don’t make much anymore. "
    - Rex Reed, The New York Observer
    "Jones tells this story with care and a lack of hurry, a pace to fit an age when people traveled no faster than two mules pulling a wagon could carry them. It’s “True Grit” and “The African Queen” with a moment of “Lawrence of Arabia,” period-perfect and a total immersion in this world. "
    - Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service
    "The Homesman is both a captivating western and a meticulous, devastating feminist critique of the genre. "
    - A.O. Scott, NY Times
    "Jones’ riveting Western is bleak and very nearly misanthropic, but it’s also passionate, earthy, unpredictable, sensitive, and gloriously distinct. "
    - Inkoo Kang, TheWrap
    "Tommy Lee Jones shows some true storytelling grit in this superbly watchable frontier western; he has a muscular and confident command of narrative, driving the plot onward with a real whip-crack, and easily handles the tonal swings between brutal shock, black comedy and sentimentality. "
    - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
    "With The Homesman, Jones has produced an original and cantankerously offbeat western which becomes increasingly beguiling as the road stretches on. "
    - John Bleasdale, CineVue

  • The Theory of Everything

    5:00pm

    The Theory of Everything
    "This is the extraordinary biopic about the fascinating, complex and inspirational example set by genius cosmologist and physicist Stephen Hawking. "
    - Rex Reed, The New York Observer
    "Visually imaginative, The Theory of Everything is an unusually compelling true-life story about an extraordinary couple triumphing over adversity. It’s my favorite movie so far this year. "
    - Lou Lumenick, New York Post
    "The film is striking, at times even piercing, for the way it infiltrates some universal realities of marriage. "
    - Stephanie Zacharek, Village Voice
    "This delightful and inspiring drama succeeds the way Hawking has, even as he fails to deliver that “one theory” that explains “everything.” It’s reaching beyond your grasp, in life, in science and in film biographies, that achieves greatness. "
    - Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service
    "The Theory of Everything, referring to Hawking’s dream of finding an equation to explain all existence, is riveting science, emotional provocation and one-of-a-kind love story all rolled into one triumphant film. "
    - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
    "James Marsh’s movie, which co-stars Felicity Jones as Jane Hawking, the celebrated physicist’s wife, is a biographical love story that doesn’t depend on science to shape the plot — it’s rich in emotional intelligence. "
    - Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
    "Just in physical terms, Eddie Redmayne transformation’s into Stephen Hawking is something remarkable. "
    - Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
  • Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtues of Ignorance)

    7:30pm

    Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtues of Ignorance)
    "A triumph on every creative level, from casting to execution. "
    - Peter Debruge, Variety
    "It’s dazzling and rambling, intimate and sprawling, and it’s carried along by an infectious, off-the-cuff jazz score. As soon as it ends, you’ll be dying to fly with it again. "
    - Cath Clarke, Time Out London
    "The film’s exhilarating originality, black comedy and tone that is at once empathetic and acidic will surely strike a strong chord with audiences looking for something fresh that will take them somewhere they haven’t been before. "
    - Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter
    "It’s borderline miraculous. "
    - Jessica Kiang, The Playlist
    "Birdman is a rich, startlingly clever and multi-layered collage, with Iñárritu creating a meta-universe of mirrors and performances upon performances. "
    - John Bleasdale, CineVue
    "Spectacular, star-powered cinema that makes us ask anew what cinema is for. Call it a “Dark Knight” of the soul. "
    - Robbie Collin, The Telegraph

But the family is divided when Lena entrusts the balance of the money to her mercurial son Walter Lee (Poitier), against the wishes of her daughter (Diana Sands) and daughter-in-law (Ruby Dee).
