MY HAPPY ENDING
Directors: Sharon Maymo, Tal Granit
Cast: Andie MacDowell, Miriam Margolyes, Sally Phillips, Rakhee Thakrar, Tamsin Greg, David Walliams
Andie MacDowell (a 1990 Spirit Award winner for Sex, Lies, and Videotape) plays Julia, a former American actress in the final act of her career who finds herself in a British hospital after a surprise late-stage cancer diagnosis in this UK-Israel co-produced comedy, which is based on the play Sof Tov by the late Israeli playwright Anat Gov. Three women—Holocaust victim Judy (Margolyes), unwavering optimist Mikey (Phillips), and a young Muslim mother named Imaan—are in her chemotherapy support group (Thakrar). Together, they support one another as they travel the arduous but fruitful path to healing and recovery.
Director: Yoko Okumura
Cast: Midori Francis, Jolene Purdy, Missi Pyle, Michael Patrick Lane
Filmed mostly in New Orleans, this Blumhouse horror-thriller follows a completely blind Japanese-American woman, Emily (Francis), who is on the run from her murderous ex-boyfriend Charlie (Lane). Amid the confusion, she makes a chance video call to sad gas station employee Sam (Purdy). Sam must act as Emily's eyes from a distance to lead her out of her perilous situation if she is to have any hope of surviving this experience. The short film, which only lasts 76 minutes, is Okumura's first feature. Following its theatrical release, the movie will also be accessible on the streaming service MGM+ (formerly Epix).
Director: Bobby Farrelly
Cast: Woody Harrelson, Kaitlin Olson, Ernie Hudson, Casey Metcalfe, Bradley Edens, Matt Cook, Joshua Felder
This underdog sports dramedy, which was directed by Farrelly (There's Something About Mary, Shallow Hal), is a remake of the 2018 Spanish-language film Campeones, which was itself based on the true account of the Valencian Special Olympics team Aderes. Once Marcus ploughs his car into a stopped police car while intoxicated, Farrelly's reworking begins. He is given the option of completing 90 days of community service as the basketball coach for the Friends, a special needs basketball team in Iowa, or spending 18 months in jail, and he regretfully chooses the latter.
JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 4
Director: Chad Stahelski
Cast: Keanu Reeves, Donnie Yen, Bill Skarsgård, Laurence Fishburne, Hiroyuki Sanada, Lance Reddick, Ian McShane
After four long years, Keanu Reeves is back with John Wick: Chapter 4. This time, the three contract-killer cohorts will do whatever it takes to help Wick gain freedom from the criminal underworld’s most powerful organization, The High Table. In this globe-trotting saga, Wick takes his fight to the council of 12 crime lords, New York to Paris, Osaka, and Berlin, as the bounty on his head continues to rise.
