Synopsis (Fox Searchlight)
"In CAN YOU EVER FORGIVE ME?, Melissa McCarthy stars as Lee Israel, the best-selling celebrity biographer (and cat lover) who made her living in the 1970’s and 80’s profiling the likes of Katharine Hepburn, Tallulah Bankhead, Estee Lauder and journalist Dorothy Kilgallen. When Lee found herself unable to get published because she had fallen out of step with the marketplace, she turned her art form to deception, abetted by her loyal friend Jack (Richard E. Grant)."

Synopsis (Sony Classics)
All signs point to this being Rupert Everett's passion project about Oscar Wilde - he wrote it, starred in it and directed it. "In a cheap Parisian hotel room Oscar Wilde lies on his death bed and the past floods back, transporting him to other times and places. Was he once the most famous man in London? The artist crucified by a society that once worshiped him? The lover imprisoned and freed, yet still running towards ruin in the final chapter of his life? Under the microscope of death he reviews the failed attempt to reconcile with his long suffering wife Constance, the ensuing reprisal of his fatal love affair with Lord Alfred Douglas and the warmth and devotion of Robbie Ross who tried and failed to save him from himself. From Dieppe to Naples to Paris freedom is elusive and Oscar is a penniless vagabond, always moving on, shunned by his old acquaintances, but revered by a strange group of outlaws and urchins to whom he tells the old stories - his incomparable wit still sharp. THE HAPPY PRINCE is a portrait of the dark side of a genius who lived and died for love in the last days of the nineteenth century." CLOSED CAPTION DEVICES AVAILABLE FOR THIS FILM.

Synopsis (Homefull)
"In January 2011 Paul Crane (Director) discovered a tent city in downtown St. Louis, along the Mississippi River. He was curious as to who these people were, and their stories, so he started volunteering. He initially thought he would capture footage during the day, but quickly realized that if he wanted to truly capture how these people lived and the full reality of their collective and individual existence, he would have to move in with them. The viewing of this documentary is during National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week. Ticket sales will be donated to Homefull, a local nonprofit that provides services to nearly 5,000 homeless men, women and children each year in Dayton and Montgomery County. Following the screening, there will be a Q&A session to raise awareness and spark more dialogue surrounding the issues and homelessness and the importance of agencies such as Homefull in our community. Thank you Paul Crane for donating your film." Tickets are $10 each and available via the "official website" link above. Tickets can also be purchased on the night of the screening at THE NEON's box office pending availability.

REEL LAUGHS MOCKS TEMPLE OF DOOM

Synopsis (Reel Laughs)
"Human sacrifice. Child slavery. Demonic possession through evil blood rites. Plucky, slightly racist comic relief. This family adventure movie has something for everyone. Come see INDIANA JONES AND THE TEMPLE OF DOOM as you’ve never seen it before: lovingly mocked by local comedians who watch too many movies and completely overestimate how many people want to hear their opinions on those movies. Stitched together from deleted scenes from RAIDERS and failed Spielberg/Lucas concepts, TEMPLE deserves what’s coming to it on December 6 at 8:00 pm. Tickets $12." Tickets will be available in person at THE NEON's box office or via the "Tickets" link above starting Nov. 15.
