STRONGER
"Stronger is the inspiring true story of Jeff Bauman, an ordinary man who captured the hearts of his city and the world to become the symbol of hope following the infamous 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Jeff, a 27-year-old, working-class Boston man who was at the marathon to try and win back his ex-girlfriend Erin (Tatiana Maslany). Waiting for her at the finish line when the blast occurs, he loses both his legs in the attack. After regaining consciousness in the hospital, Jeff is able to help law enforcement identify one of the bombers, but his own battle has just begun. He tackles months of physical and emotional rehabilitation with the unwavering support of Erin and his family. It is Jeff's deeply personal account of the heroic journey that tests a family's bond, defines a community's pride and inspires his inner courage to overcome devastating adversity...The film also stars Academy Award nominee Miranda Richardson and is directed by David Gordon Green."

"On the outskirts of Brooklyn, Frankie, an aimless teenager, suffocates under the oppressive glare cast by his family and a toxic group of delinquent friends. Struggling with his own identity, Frankie begins to scour hookup sites for older men. When his chatting and webcamming intensify, he begins meeting men at a nearby cruising beach while simultaneously entering into a cautious relationship with a young woman. As Frankie struggles to reconcile his competing desires, his decisions leave him hurtling toward irreparable consequences. Eliza Hittman's award-winning Sundance hit is a powerful character study that is as visually stunning as it is evocative." CLOSED CAPTION DEVICES AVAILABLE FOR THIS FILM.

Taking his place in the resplendent mansion known as the Viceroy's House, Mountbatten arrives hopeful for a peaceful transference of power. But ending centuries of colonial rule in a country divided by deep religious and cultural differences proves no easy undertaking, setting off a seismic struggle that threatens to tear India apart.

Synopsis (Fox Searchlight)
"In the wake of the sexual revolution and the rise of the women's movement, the 1973 tennis match between women's World #1 Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) and ex-men's-champ and serial hustler Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell) was billed as the BATTLE OF THE SEXES and became one of the most watched televised sports events of all time, reaching 90 million viewers around the world. As the rivalry between King and Riggs kicked into high gear, off-court each was fighting more personal and complex battles...Together, Billie and Bobby served up a cultural spectacle that resonated far beyond the tennis court, sparking discussions in bedrooms and boardrooms that continue to reverberate today." Manohla Dargis of THE NEW YORK TIMES wrote, "It was personal and it was political, which BATTLE OF THE SEXES gets. It was also entertainment, which is where the movie really excels." And many critics agree with Richard Roeper of THE CHICAGO SUN-TIMES - "Emma Stone does the best work of her career. Her Billie Jean King is a champion on multiple levels."

Synopsis (Press Notes)
Dayton's Women's Rights Alliance and Women's Resistance are sponsoring a one-time-only screening of LEFT ON PEARL on Sunday, Oct. 22 at 3:00. "LEFT ON PEARL is an award-winning documentary about a significant but little-known chapter in the history of the Women's Liberation Movement. On March 6, 1971, International Women's Day marchers turned left into a community fighting displacement by Harvard University. The marchers seized a university building and declared it a Women's Center. Hundreds of women, veterans of the antiwar and civil rights movements (among them some of the earliest out lesbian rights activists) participated in this effective action. Through television news from the time, newspaper headlines, found footage, and extensive interviews with participants and eyewitnesses of varied sexual orientations, racial, class and ethnic backgrounds (including both supporters and opponents of the takeover) LEFT ON PEARL provides a riveting and often humorous look at a fascinating historical moment." Tickets - $10 for general admission and $5 for students with valid IDs - go on sale Friday, Sept. 22 at THE NEON's box office.
