"An unequivocal cause for celebration. Director Sara Driver pays him a proper and enthralling tribute." — New York Times Critics' Pick
"Driver does a great job of showing how Basquiat’s graffiti smears were more than just a subjective piece of art but also spoke candidly to social commentary on race, poverty, and oppression." — Black Girl Nerds

Against the explosive backdrop of the Iraq War, young soldiers Brandon Bartle (Alden Ehrenreich) and Daniel Murphy (Tye Sheridan) forge a deep bond of friendship. When tragedy strikes the platoon, one soldier must return home to face the hard truth behind the incident, and help his friend’s grieving mother (Jennifer Aniston) find peace.

"If John Waters and Karl Marx co-directed a remake of The Beguiled, the resulting feature would be very much like Bruce LaBruce's The Misandrists....a mental landscape that will have the Weinsteins of the world quaking in their Guccis." — CultureCatch
This campy comedy-drama, in which a male hidden in the basement is the least of the secrets at a militant all-girls boarding school, starts Friday, June 22.
Yellow Submarine has been restored and remixed for its 50th Anniversary! Due to the delicate nature of the hand-drawn original artwork, no automated software was used in the digital clean-up of the film’s restored photochemical elements. This was all done by hand, frame by frame. The film’s songs and score were remixed in 5.1 stereo surround sound at UMG’s Abbey Road Studios by music mix engineer Peter Cobbin.
An icon of psychedelic pop culture, Yellow Submarine is a colourful musical spectacle and an exhilaratingly joyful cinematic experience for all ages — filled with visual invention, optical illusions, word play, and glorious, glorious music.
