Behaving Badly

In this fast-paced, outrageously funny, all-star romp, socially awkward high schooler Rick Stevens (Nat Wolff) is willing to do whatever it takes to win the heart of the girl of his dreams… and he does mean anything. But love’s a bitch! Particularly when your sights are set on the most beautiful and popular girl at school (teen queen and pop superstar Selena Gomez).

Calvary

Calvary’s Father James (Brendan Gleeson) is a good priest who is faced with sinister and troubling circumstances brought about by a mysterious member of his parish. Although he continues to comfort his own fragile daughter (Kely Reilly) and reach out to help members of his church with their various scurrilous moral—and often comic—problems, he feels sinister forces closing in, and begins to wonder if he will have the courage to face his own personal Calvary.

4 Minute Mile

4 MINUTE MILE is the inspirational story of Drew, a high school student struggling to overcome the inner-city surroundings that threaten to imprison him. After getting manipulated into running drug payments to a local dealer, Drew has nowhere to turn in a family with a deadbeat older brother and an overwhelmed single mom. His only outlet is track practice, but that is taken from him as he continues down the path of his sibling; even the affections of a girl at school can’t set him straight. Just as it seems hopeless, an ex-track coach with his own demons witnesses Drew’s speed and athleticism and decides to train him to reach for more than he ever imagined possible. Together they work towards finding solace in each other, but Drew’s resolve is threatened as tragedy strikes right before the biggest race of his life and forces him to confront everything that has been holding him back.

Rich Hill

Rich Hill, Missouri could be any of the countless small towns that blanket America’s heartland, but to teenagers Andrew, Harley and Appachey, it’s home. As they ride their skateboards and go to football practice, they are like millions of other boys coming of age the world over. But faced with difficult circumstances—isolation, instability, and parental unemployment—adolescence can be a daily struggle just to survive. With no road map and all evidence to the contrary, they cling to the hope that even they can live the American dream. Winner of the 2014 Sundance Grand Jury Prize, RICH HILL is an irresistibly moving and inspirational portrait of the challenges, hopes and dreams of rural America’s youth.
