WINNER! BEST ACTRESS - GOLDEN GLOBES

WINNER! BEST FOREIGN FILM - GOLDEN GLOBES

Isabelle Huppert delivers a standout performance as a woman turning the tables on her attacker in the acclaimed black comedy thriller from controversial director Paul Verhoeven. Michèle seems indestructible. Head of a successful video game company, she brings the same ruthless attitude to her love life as to business. Being attacked in her home by an unknown assailant changes Michèle's life forever. When she resolutely tracks the man down, they are both drawn into a curious and thrilling game-a game that may, at any moment, spiral out of control.

A smart, sophisticated and riveting psychological thriller for adults. ELLE finds director Verhoeven operating at peak power with a typically outstanding awards worthy performance from Isabelle Huppert (a guaranteed Academy Awards nomination for Best Actress) in the central role. ELLE is transgressive and constantly defies expectations. It's a unique work, one that's very much a product of the current culture and a rebellion against it. ELLE is is a dangerous delight, uproarious, galvanic and guaranteed to spark debate.

WIINNER! BEST PICTURE - GOLDEN GLOBES

SPECIAL RETURN ENGAGEMENT! The Most Highly Acclaimed and Awarded Film of the Year!

A timeless story of human connection and self-discovery, MOONLIGHT chronicles the life of a young black man from childhood to adulthood as he struggles to find his place in the world while growing up in a rough neighborhood of Miami. At once a vital portrait of contemporary African American life and an intensely personal and poetic meditation on identity, family, friendship, and love, MOONLIGHT is a groundbreaking piece of cinema that reverberates with deep compassion and universal truths. Anchored by extraordinary performances from a tremendous ensemble cast, director Barry Jenkins’s staggering, singular vision is profoundly moving in its portrayal of the moments, people, and unknowable forces that shape our lives and make us who we are.

In its quietly radical grace, it's a cultural watershed - a work that dismantles all the ways our media view young black men and puts in their place a series of intimate truths. a tender, compassionate, restrained look at a life lived in the shadows. Basking in this MOONLIGHT is one of the cinematic joys of the year and this just might be the year's best movie.
