Run, don't walk, to get tickets to Ira Sachs' tender portrait of two elderly lovers, Ben (John Lithgow) and George (Alfred Molina), who marry after 39 years together and suddenly have their lives take an unexpected bad turn. Sachs' film is heartbreaking without being maudlin and exceptionally beautiful. One of the best films this year.

Night Moves
A spellbinding, unbearably tense, film about eco-terrorism. Director Kelly Reichardt artfully unfolds this tale of tightly wound Josh (Jesse Eisenberg) and idealistic rich girl Dena (Dakota Fanning) meeting up with ex-military Harmon (Peter Sarsgaard) to pack a boat with explosives and blow up a dam.

 

Venus In Fur
Roman Polanski's latest is adapted from David Ives' 2010 Tony winner about a theater director (Matthieu Almaric) staging an adaptation of a play by the notorious Leopold von Sacher-Masoch, and a mysterious actress (Emmanuelle Seigner).
 

Dior and I
 
A documentary by Frederic Tcheng about the legendary House Of Christian Dior. The high behind-the scene drama of Raf Simon's first Dior Haute Couture collection is irresistible.
