In The Heart Of The Sea:
Directed by Ron Howard, this Moby Dick adaptation is made for the big screen. In the winter of 1820, the New England whaling ship Essex was assaulted by something no one could believe: a whale of mammoth size and will, and an almost human sense of vengeance. The real-life maritime disaster would inspire Melville’s Moby-Dick. In The Heart Of The Sea reveals the encounter’s harrowing aftermath, as the ship’s surviving crew are pushed to their limits to stay alive. Braving storms, starvation, panic and despair, the men will call into question their deepest beliefs. Stars Chris Hemsworth, Cillian Murphy, Tom Holland, Ben Whishaw and Brendan Gleeson.

Truth is an independent feature film in the same vein as All The President’s Men and The Insider, telling the incredible true story of Mary Mapes (played by Cate Blanchett), an award-winning CBS News Journalist and Dan Rather’s (screen legend Robert Redford) producer, who broke the Abu-Ghraib prison abuse story, among others. The film chronicles the story uncovered that a sitting US president may have been AWOL from the United States National Guard for over a year during the Vietnam War. When the story blew up in their face, the ensuing scandal ruined Rather’s career, nearly changed a US Presidential election, and almost took down all of CBS News in the process.

End Of The Tour:
James Ponsoldt’s conversational drama is inspired by the five-day interview between Rolling Stone reporter David Lipsky (Jesse Eisenberg) and acclaimed novelist David Foster Wallace (Jason Segel), which took place right after the 1996 publication of Wallace’s groundbreaking epic novel, Infinite Jest. A tenuous yet intense relationship developed between journalist and subject, but ironically, the interview was never published and the audio tapes were packed away in Lipsky’s closet. The two men did not meet again. The film is based on Lipsky’s critically acclaimed memoir about this unforgettable encounter. Co-stars Joan Cusack, Anna Chlumsky and Mamie Gummer.
