Repentance

From Lionsgate and Codeblack Films. Years after a drunken car crash that almost took his life, Tommy Carter (Anthony Mackie) has reinvented himself as a therapist/spiritual advisor who advocates a synthesis of world religions and positivity. He’s parlayed this vocation into a successful book release that one day draws the attention of Angel Sanchez (Forest Whitaker), a profoundly troubled man fixated on the “untimely” death of his mother. When Carter takes on Sanchez as a personal client in an effort to raise funds for his indebted brother Ben (Mike Epps), things quickly take a turn for the worse. Angel needs much more than a simple life coach. What may be simple to grasp for some is the idea that single actions in the past comprise tidal waves of reactions in the present. Director Philippe Caland’s REPENTANCE examines these issues against a backdrop of kidnapping and murder.

Director: Philippe Caland
Cast: Forest Whitaker, Anthony Mackie, Mike Epps, Sanaa Lathan, Nicole Ari Parker

Shaadi Ke Side Effects

Side effects are funny, sometimes they are a wonderful surprise… and sometimes they are a mixed bag. One can only imagine that marriage would come with side effects…. Pleasure being replaced by companionship.. Lovers becoming friends.. But not Sid (Farhan Akhtar) and Trisha (Vidya Balan). Theirs is a marriage where they are living out each other’s fantasies, turning them into reality peppered with love, lust & longing. Shaadi Ke Side Effects is a witty, comedy that re-defines happily ever after – if there really is one!!

Director: Saket Chowdhary
Cast: Farhan Akhtar, Vidya Balan, Vir Das
