      • Based on the 1952 Akira Kurosawa film Ikiru (To Live), LIVING has been exquisitely adapted by the Nobel Prize-winning novelist Kazuo Ishiguro. LIVING is the story of an ordinary man, reduced by years of oppressive office routine to a shadow existence, who at the eleventh hour makes a supreme effort to turn his dull life into something wonderful. This wise and moving drama is an existential journey that celebrates learning how to live life, in all its fleeting beauty. LIVING sets a high bar for itself in setting out to remake a Kurosawa classic and director Oliver Hermanus and star Bill Nighy clear it in triumphant fashion. Utterly gorgeous and emotionally gratifying.

      • From acclaimed legendary filmmaker Jerzy Skolimowski. EO, a grey donkey with melancholic eyes, meets good and bad people on his life's path, experiences joy and pain, endures the wheel of fortune randomly turn his luck into disaster and his despair into unexpected bliss. But not even for a moment does he lose his innocence. An affecting ode to empathy and nature, EO compels us to see the world differently and therefore helps us see it from a perspective outside our own. One of the greatest movies ever made about the spirit of animals, a thrillingly imaginative, strange and haunting epic that couldn't feel more of our moment.
