In picturesque Montmarte, three children wearing a yellow star play in the streets, oblivious to the darkness spreading over
Nazi-occupied France. Their parents do not seem too concerned either, somehow putting their trust in the Vichy Government.
But beyond this view, much is going on. Hitler demands that the French government round up its Jews and put them on trains
for the extermination camps in the East. The collaborators start to put the plan into effect and within a short time, 13,000 of
Paris's Jews, among them 4,000 children, will be rounded up and sent on a road with no return. The fateful date: July 16th,
1942, 68 years ago.
the true story of an ordinary man who wins the queen's heart and starts a revolution. Centering on the intriguing love triangle
between the ever more insane Danish King Christian VII (Mikkel Boe Følsgaard), the man of enlightenment and idealism
Struensee (Mads Mikkelsen) and the young but strong Queen Caroline Mathilda (Alicia Vikander), A Royal Affair is the

passionate and forbidden romance that changed an entire nation.
In an era known for protests and sit-ins, the 1973 Grand Divertissement at Versailles, made a statement of its own - a fashion
statement. The legendary event pitting the five lions of French couture Givenchy, Dior, Ungaro, Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre
Cardin with five American designers Halston, Oscar de la Renta, Anne Klein, Stephen Burrows and Bill Blass created a
cross-stitch of change across fashion, race, business and catwalks. When African American models Bethann Hardison, Pat
Cleveland, Alva Chinn, Billie Blair, Norma Jean Darden, Barbara Jackson, Jennifer Brice, Romana Saunders and Amina
Warsuma boarded the plane to Paris, they had no idea they would help change the course of fashion and pull off its biggest
coup. Versailles '73: American Runway Revolution tells this story.
"Cloud Atlas" explores how the actions and consequences of individual lives impact one another throughout the past, the
present and the future. Action, mystery and romance weave dramatically through the story as one soul is shaped from a killer
into a hero and a single act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution in the distant future. Each member of
the ensemble appears in multiple roles as the stories move through time.
Bettina Goering is the great-niece of Nazi official Hermann Göring. Katrin Himmler is the great-niece of Heinrich Himmler,
second in command of the Nazi Party under Adolf Hitler. Rainer Hoess is the grandson of Rudolf Hoess, creator and
commandant of the Auschwitz Concentration Camp. Niklas Frank is the son of Hans Frank, Polish Governor-General during
WWII, he who was responsible for the ghettos and concentration camps in Nazi occupied Poland. Monika Goeth is the
daughter of Amon Goeth, commandant of the Plaszów Concentration Camp. None with Nazi leanings, the five talk
individually about what it is like to carry a name associated with the Nazi Party, being a blood relative to someone associated
with hate and murder, being German at a time when that in and of itself was seen as being associated with Naziism,
dealing with their family regardless of their allegiance to the Nazi Party...
An urgent expose of the culture wars being fought within America's public school system, The Revisionaries is a
behind-the-scenes look at the Texas State Board of Education's decade-defining conference on state textbook standards. As
Texas is the country's single largest textbook buyer--and publishers are forced to re-write content to comply with their
educational standards--the board's decisions have the ability to affect the future of American education.
A powerful documentary that exposes the direct connection between the long history of U.S. intervention in Latin America and
the immigration crisis we face today. From the territorial expansionist policies that decimated the young economies of
Mexico, Puerto Rico and Cuba, to the covert operations that imposed oppressive military regimes in the Dominican
Republic, Guatemala, Nicaragua and El Salvador, Harvest of Empire provides an unflinching look at the origins of the
growing Latino presence in the United States. Adapted from the landmark book written by journalist Juan Gonzalez, the film
tells the story of an epic human saga that is largely unknown to the great majority of citizens in the U.S., but must become
part of our national conversation about immigration.
Amid national chaos and fear for his life, tyrannical King Gwanghae orders his trusted councilor Heo Kyun to find a royal body
double. He hires Ha-seon, a peasant mimic who bears a perfect resemblance to the King. When King Gwanghae collapses
from a mysterious poison, Ha-seon reluctantly becomes a King. He must follow his conscience to save his country from
collapse, avoid assassination, and pull off the biggest masquerade in history. Korean star Lee Byung-hun (G.I. Joe: The Rise
of Cobra, upcoming sequels G.I. Joe: Retaliation and Red 2, Korean hits I Saw The Devil, and A Bittersweet Life) stars in the
dual role, playing against himself, and character actor Rru Seung-ryong (All About My Wife, War of the Arrows) and Han
Hyo-Joo (Always) co-star.
The story of the brave young men and women who successfully reversed the tide of an epidemic, demanded the attention of
a fearful nation and stopped AIDS from becoming a death sentence. This improbable group of activists bucked oppression
and, with no scientific training, infiltrated government agencies and the pharmaceutical industry, helping to identify
promising new medication and treatments and move them through trials and into drugstores in record time. In the process,
they saved their own lives and ended the darkest days of a veritable plague, while virtually emptying AIDS wards in American
hospitals in the process. The powerful story of their fight is a classic tale of empowerment and activism that has since
inspired movements for change in everything from breast cancer research to Occupy Wall Street. Their story stands as a
powerful inspiration to future generations, a road map, and a call to arms. This is how you change the world.
In 1945, Japan surrendered to the United States and the Second World War was over. Right? Wrong. For eighty percent of the
Japanese community in Brazil, Japan had won the war and defeat was nothing more than American propaganda. The few
immigrants that accepted the truth were persecuted. Some were hunted down and assassinated - by their own countrymen -
causing the start of a new, private war. Dirty Hearts is a thriller and love story told by the wife of one of the fanatics dedicated to
preach Japanese victory. Little by little, she watches her husband, a hard-working immigrant, become an assassin and their
love story fade away.

a nefarious minister, a doctor sacrifices his own son, and later becomes intent on seeking vengeance against the minister

A look at the relationship between Marie Antoinette and one of her readers during the final days of the French Revolution.
The film marks the return of acclaimed director Benoit Jacquot (A Single Girl, Seventh Heaven, Sade, Deep in the Woods,) and
brilliantly captures the passions, debauchery, occasional glimpses of nobility and ultimately the chaos that engulfed the court
of Marie Antoinette in the final days before the full-scale outbreak of the Revolution. Based on the best-selling novel by Chantal
Thomas, the film stars Lea Seydoux as one of Marie's ladies-in-waiting, seemingly an innocent but quietly working her way
into her mistress's special favors, until history tosses her fate onto a decidedly different path. With the action moving
effortlessly from the gilded drawing rooms of the nobles to the back quarters of those who serve them, this is a period film at
once accurate and sumptuous in its visual details and modern in its emotions. Diane Kruger's gives her best performance to
date as the ill-fated Queen and Virginie Ledoyen is the Queen's special friend Gabrielle de Polignac.
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter explores the secret life of our greatest president, and the untold story that shaped our

consciousness expanded, and art as we know it is reborn. She is, quite simply, one of the most compelling artists of our
Immersed in exotic locales across four continents, best selling author Dinesh D'Souza races against time to find answers to

radically misunderstood, and identifies new flashpoints for hot wars in mankind's greatest struggle. The journey moves

It’s Memorial Day 1993, when 13-year-old Kyle Vogel stumbles upon his grandfather Bud’s (James Cromwell, The Artist,
Babe) World War II footlocker. Though reluctant to discuss the war with his grandson, Bud strikes a deal with Kyle: He’ll tell
the stories of any three objects from the footlocker that Kyle chooses. As we flash back to see Bud’s WWII tales (the younger
Bud is played by John Cromwell, James Cromwell’s son) from Europe unfold through his souvenirs and memories, we also
flash forward to see how the present day SSgt. Kyle Vogel’s (Jonathan Bennett, Mean Girls) experiences in Iraq parallel
them—and how that day on the porch with his grandfather will affect how he ultimately deals with the losses, regrets and
moral dilemmas that unite all soldiers across all wars and generations.
