RED CARPET PRESENTATIONS

 

Opening Night, November 12 (8pm), Buell Theatre

5 to 7 - (DIRECTOR Victor Levin PRODUCERS Bonnie Curtis, Sam Englebardt, David S. Greathouse, William D. Johnson, Julie Lynn WRITER Victor Levin CAST Anton Yelchin, Bérénice Marlohe, Jocelyn DeBoer, Glenn Close and Frank Langella) - Writer/director Victor Levin's debut is a complex look at a modern affair that offers insight into the unpredictable nature of life and the equally unexpected consequences of love. Outside the Manhattan St. Regis Hotel, Brian (Anton Yelchin), a young and single aspiring writer, inadvertently comes upon Arielle (Bérénice Marlohe), the elegant wife of a French diplomat and mother of two. Despite the brevity of their meeting and Arielle's marital status, Brian can't help but be drawn to her sophisticated allure, and the two become embroiled in a cinq-a-sept affair. But what begins as a casual encounter quickly develops into a deeper attraction, facing the couple with a complicated future and leaving them with the realization that love that cannot be contained between 5 and 7.

Matinee, November 15 (2pm), Buell Theatre

Touch the Wall - USA - (DIRECTOR Grant Barbeito, Christo Brock PRODUCERS Grant Barbeito, Christo Brock WRITER Christo Brock CAST Missy Franklin, Kara Lynn Joyce) - Touch the Wall is the story of two Olympic swimmers - Gold-Medalist Missy Franklin and Silver-Medalist Kara Lynn Joyce - and their journey to the 2012 London Olympics. When the veteran Joyce joins teenager Franklin and her age-group swim club, everything changes. The veteran Kara finds a new start and a world-class training partner; Missy finds a veteran and older sister to learn from. Together they train, compete, and support each other until the pool becomes too big for the two of them. Thrown apart by coach and circumstance, they reunite at Olympic Trials to redefine what it means to win.

 

Big Night, November 15 (8pm), Buell Theatre

The Imitation Game - USA - (DIRECTOR Morten Tyldum PRODUCERS Nora Grossman, Ido Ostrowsky, Teddy Schwarzman WRITERS Andrew Hodges (book), Graham Moore (screenplay) CAST Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode) - Benedict Cumberbatch (TV's Sherlock) dominates in this biopic of Alan Turing, the British mathematician who broke the Germans' Enigma code, playing a major role in ending World War II. Imagine The Social Network set in 1930s England: a team of geniuses headed by the savant Turing, who must race against the clock to curb Nazi power. Norwegian director Morten Tyldum (Headhunters) gets a boost in his English-language debut from a strong performance by Keira Knightley. The story is told through flashback. We meet Turing toward the end of his life, reflecting on his impact on the war effort. At 27, he lands a job at a top-secret agency that's in the early stages of breaking the code. Turing, obviously beyond brilliant for the job, begins butting heads with everyone up the chain of command, until ultimately cracking the code. But the inspired mathematician's personal life eventually becomes his demise, through no fault of his own. Courtesy of The Weinstein Company

 

Matinee, November 22 (2pm), Buell Theatre

Keep On Keepin' On - USA - (DIRECTOR Alan Hicks PRODUCERS Paula DuPré Pesmen, Quincy Jones WRITERS Davis Coombe, Alan Hicks CAST Clark Terry, Justin Kauflin, Quincy Jones) - From his impoverished childhood in St. Louis in the '20s and '30s to a career that crossed paths with nearly every great jazz musician of the last 70 years, Clark "CT" Terry has amazing stories to tell. Deemed by Dizzy Gillespie to have the "happiest sound in jazz," Terry is featured on over 900 recordings, and counts as his students Miles Davis and Quincy Jones. At 93, Terry still teaches, plays music, and tells great stories. The film's emotional core is the moving relationship between young pianist (Kauflin), who lost his sight at age eleven, and Terry, who is losing his own. Keep on Keepin' On is directed by first-time filmmaker Alan Hicks, a drummer who was a student of Terry's and played in his band. This inspiring documentary is written and edited by Colorado's leading editor, Davis Coombe, who will be participating in a one-on-one conversation during the festival. Courtesy of RADiUS-TWC

The tale of isolation-turned-doubtful-friendship across age and class stars Leighton Meester (TV's Gossip Girl), Debra Messing (TV's Will & Grace) in a serious role, and Green Day's Armstrong. Reggie (newcomer Julian Shatkin) is a 12-year-old musical prodigy who has a hard time forming bonds with kids his age. He thwarts his mothers' pressure to normalize him. Living in an Upper East Side mansion, he's isolated from most of the world with nothing but his music to occupy his time. Eleanor (Leighton Meester) finds herself jobless and homeless after a drastic breakup with her rocker boyfriend (Billie Joe Armstrong). By chance she becomes Reggie's au pair, and through a bond of music the duo form a close relationship, altering both their lives.
