HENRY V – SHAKESPEARE’S GLOBE ON SCREEN

NR  |  2 hours 58 minutes 

Shakespeare’s masterpiece of the turbulence of war and the arts of peace tells the romantic story of Henry’s campaign to recapture the English possessions in France. But the ambitions of this charismatic king are challenged by a host of vivid characters caught up in the real horrors of war. HENRY V celebrates the power of language to summon into life courts, pubs, ships, and battlefields within the ‘wooden O’ – and beyond. Jamie Parker, much loved for his performance as Prince Hal in Henry IV Parts 1 & 2 (2010), returns to his journey as Henry V.

THE SKELETON TWINS

Sundance Film Festival Screenwriting Award winner, Grand Jury Prize nominee

R  |  1 hour 32 minutes 

Saturday Night Live veterans Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig give knockout performances in this fearless indie dramedy about thirty-something angst. As children, Maggie and Milo seemed inseparable. But their father’s death sent them on different paths, and ultimately led to a decade-long estrangement. Now in their thirties, another set of near-tragedies forces them to consider how their lives got so off track. As the siblings reconnect, they realize the key to fixing their lives may lie in repairing their relationship. Luke Wilson and Ty Burrell also star in Craig Johnson’s Sundance Film Festival award-winning sophomore feature.
