(Limited theatrical run) If you have ever watched a loved one struggle with dementia, you know how heartbreaking it is to see them lose their grip on reality. It is a brutal disease that takes the greatest among us and whittles them down to the equivalent of an unteachable child. Yet, you can see in their eyes that, somehow, they know there is a forgotten world in which they still live. Portraying dementia on screen to this point has been a very difficult task. Some films have done a decent job...

The prison set up at Guantanamo Bay after the 9/11 attacks became one of the most controversial parts of the decades-long war on terror. Thousands of people were detained there and only a handful of them were ever charged. During the years after 9/11 there were dozens of stories about prisoner abuse there. One of the most damning testimonies came in the form of the bestselling book, The Mauritanian.

Humans can find hope and joy in the darkest of times and situations. This film does a beautiful job of using a very dark moment to show the light. It is strange because there is nothing happy about this story, yet it feels good to have gone through it. The trio of actors are all superb. Dakota Johnson gives one of her best performances of her career. Casey Affleck proves once again that he is the superior actor in his family. And Jason Segel shows that he can be so much more than just the funny,...

Robert De Niro is the human equivalent of the Energizer Bunny. He's pushing 80 years old, but he works as much, if not more, than most Hollywood A-listers. In fact, he still has two films, other than this one, still to be released this year, and five other films in some stage of production. And the beast thing about his acting is that he makes every film he is in better. There is no way this film will ever be mistaken for cinematic brilliance, but it is one that the whole family can enjoy together. It's filled...

We all know that if you are going to chase after your dreams you are going to have to overcome a lot of obstacles. This film is all about doing just that. And it does it with beautiful music. Eva Noblezada gives a fantastic performance in a moving film that draws you in and gives light to the struggles faced by many people. She also sings several of the songs herself, which will come as no surprise when you realize she has played the lead in MISS SAIGON on Broadway and and...

Richard Jenkins is a fantastic actor, and his performance in this film is nothing short of a master class. Add to that the amazing performance by Shane Paul McGhie and you have a solid foundation for a very good film. The story is interesting if not exciting. Seeing the conflict that arises between a white man that made a career out of a fast food job and the young, black man that is hired to replace him, but couldn't care less about the job, is a fascinating slice of life in modern day America. ...
