A comedy thriller from Joel Coen and Ethan Coen. Osbourne Cox (John Malkovich) is a CIA analyst who quits his job at the CIA after being demoted because of his drinking problem.

His wife, Katie Cox (Tilda Swinton), wants to divorce Osbourne and, at the counsel of her divorce lawyer, she copies all his personal financial files off his computer along with his work-in-progress memoirs. This disk eventually finds its way to Hardbodies, a workout gym.

Preview Screening: Towelhead
Tribeca Cinemas 54 Varick Street
Jasira wants something she can’t define; attention, love, acceptance or a normal life. Unfortunately she doesn’t know the right way to find it. When Jasira’s mother exiles her to Houston to live with her strict, quick-to-anger Lebanese father, she quickly learns what aspects of herself to suppress in front of him. In private, however, she conducts her sexual awakening with all the false confidence that pop culture and her neighbor's magazines have provided. Based on the critically acclaimed novel by Alicia Erian and written for the screen and directed by Alan Ball, Towelhead stars Aaron Eckhart, Toni Collette, Maria Bello, Peter Macdissi, and newcomer Summer Bishil as Jasira. A Warner Independent Pictures release.
