The Screening Room

The Irishman is about the life of former mob hitman Frank Sheeran, played by Robert De Niro, as he recounts his life in organized crime and his role in the disappearance of Jimmy Hoffa, played by Al Pacino. This thriller also co-stars Harvey Keitel and Joe Pesci.
The Cave is a documentary about a group of female doctors who established a field hospital in a cave in the Syrian province of Ghouta. This film will highlight some of the good people are doing in Syria during the long drawn out civil war.
The Cinematica Classic for the month is Possession. This tale of betrayal and obsession is worth a look for Isabelle Adjani’s riveting portrayal of Anna who leaves her husband Mark, played by Sam Neil. Mark can’t let her go and soon learns that Anna has been hiding a much darker secret than an affair.
Frankie brings together a large family of three generations who spend their time at a seaside resort in Portugal trying to make sense of a life changing event that has struck the family.
The staff pic for the month is Unchained. Unchained is a surrealist look at love and what we perceive as acceptance as we watch the lead actress in the film attempt to connect with her disfigured co star.
