A true story of fame, abuse and betrayal set against the sexual revolution of the 1970's, LOVELACE stars Amanda Seyfried and Golden Globe® nominee Peter Sarsgaard opposite an all-star cast that includes Emmy Award winner Hank Azaria, Wes Bentley, Adam Brody, Emmy® winner Bobby Cannavale, Academy Award® nominee James Franco, Debi Mazar, Golden Globe nominee Chris Noth, Robert Patrick, Eric Roberts, Academy Award nominee Sharon Stone, Academy Award nominee Chloe Sevigny and Juno Temple.

In 1972—before the internet, before the porn explosion—Deep Throat was a phenomenon: the first scripted pornographic theatrical feature film, featuring a story, some jokes, and an unknown and unlikely star, Linda Lovelace. Escaping a strict religious family, Linda discovered freedom and the high-life when she fell for and married charismatic hustler Chuck Traynor. As Linda Lovelace she became an international sensation—less centerfold fantasy than a charming girl-next-door with an impressive capacity for fellatio. Fully inhabiting her new identity, Linda became an enthusiastic spokesperson for sexual freedom and uninhibited hedonism. Six years later she presented another, utterly contradictory, narrative to the world—and herself as the survivor of a far darker story.

American filmmaker David Gordon Green exhibits his mastery for infusing poignant character study with comedic insight through subtle shifts in tone, incisive dialogue, and a profound appreciation for place. Set to the haunting backdrop of a barren expanse of burnt-out Texas wilderness—whose melancholic beauty is accentuated with the music of the rock band Explosions in the Sky and collaborator David Wingo’s stunning score as well as Tim Orr's sweeping cinematography—PRINCE AVALANCHE bucks convention by exploring male bonding in a refreshingly genuine--and often absurdist--way.

An odd couple of sorts, Alvin (Paul Rudd), meditative and stern, and his girlfriend’s brother Lance (Emile Hirsch), dopey and insecure, leave the city behind to spend the summer in solitude repainting traffic lines down the center of a country highway ravaged by wildfire. As the two begin their gradual journey across the landscape, swapping stories and butting heads, what unfolds is an unexpectedly humorous yet moving examination of an unlikely friendship that reveals distinct approaches to finding one's way in life. Adapted from EITHER WAY, an Icelandic film, PRINCE AVALANCHE is driven by strong performances by the two male leads.

      One of Al Pacino's directory experiments, Salomé was filmed over 5 days in 2011, but has yet to be widely released. It is a part of a double feature on the Oscar Wilde short play "Salomé", together with the Venice-shown documentary "Wilde Salomé", that shows the making of this film. The synops shown on IMDb for the 1923 take on the play goes as following: "Salome, the daughter of Herodias, seduces her step-father/uncle Herod, governor of Judea, with a salacious dance. In return, he promises her the head of the prophet John the Baptist."
