MR. TURNER
Given 100% reviews by The Wall Street Journal, NPR, Entertainment Weekly, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times and many more! "This film explores the last quarter century of the great if eccentric British painter J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851). Profoundly affected by the death of his father, loved by a housekeeper he takes for granted and occasionally exploits sexually, he forms a close relationship with a seaside landlady with whom he eventually lives incognito in Chelsea, where he dies. Throughout this, he travels, paints, stays with the country aristocracy, visits brothels, is a popular if anarchic member of the Royal Academy of Arts, has himself strapped to the mast of a ship so that he can paint a snowstorm, and is both celebrated and reviled by the public and by royalty."

Synopsis (Fox Searchlight)
"THE SECOND BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL is the expansionist dream of Sonny (Dev Patel), and he has his eye on a promising property now that his first venture, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel for the Elderly and Beautiful, has only a single remaining vacancy - posing a rooming predicament for fresh arrivals Guy (Richard Gere) and Lavinia (Tamsin Greig). Evelyn and Douglas (Judi Dench and Bill Nighy) have now joined the Jaipur workforce, and are wondering where their regular dates for Chilla pancakes will lead, while Norman and Carol (Ronald Pickup and Diana Hardcastle) are negotiating the tricky waters of an exclusive relationship. Perhaps the only one who may know the answers is newly installed co-manager of the hotel, Muriel (Maggie Smith), the keeper of everyone's secrets. As the demands of a traditional Indian wedding threaten to engulf them all, an unexpected way forward presents itself."

Synopsis (ReelAbilities Film Festival)
The ReelAbilities Film Festival is happening at numerous venues around Cincinnati, but one special screening is coming to Dayton. "Rick Guidotti, who after 15 years of working for clients such as Yves Saint Laurent, Elle, and Harper's Bazaar, grew tired of seeing the same ideal of beauty 'spit up at us constantly.' In a moment of serendipity, Rick walked by a young woman with Albinism at a New York City bus stop, and wondered why she wasn't considered beautiful in his other world. This exploration resulted in a show-stopping magazine spread for Life Magazine called 'Redefining Beauty.' The Cincinnati ReelAbilities Film Festival, organized by LADD and presented by Macy's, is our region's largest film festival celebrating the stories, lives and art of people who experience disability; all of the film screenings benefit local nonprofit organizations."

Synopsis (Turkish American Society Press Notes)
"On Sunday, March 15 at 3:00, The Turkish American Society is proud to present a special, one-time screening of director Hasan Kirac's TWO HEARTS AS ONE (Birlesen Goenuller). This powerful film - one of the most expensive productions in Turkish film history - is based on a true story. Starting in 1940's Soviet Russia, and continuing into 1990's, this is the story of four hearts which couldn't be stopped by distances and years. Newlyweds Niyaz and Cennet are forced to separate when war rears a violent and chaotic head. Niyaz is taken to Red Army to fight on the Soviet side, while Cennet is sent to a camp when the Nazis took over their village...Woven into the narrative is the story of Yunus and Dilek, a loving couple from Turkey who leave for Almaty, then the capital of Kazakhstan, in the 1990's. Ambitious Yunus is planning to build a school, but he has no resources at all. His wife Dilek sympathizes and supports him, but their enduring poverty wears her patience and resolve - until a chance encounter provides some much-needed perspective. Tickets for this special event are $10 and are now available at THE NEON's box office."
