The Irishman, directed and produced by Martin Scorsese, is based on the 2004 book, I Heard You Paint Houses, by Charles Brandt, and stars Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci. It is an epic saga of organized crime in post-war America as told through the eyes of World War II veteran Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran (Robert De Niro), a hustler and hitman who worked alongside one of the most notorious figures of the 20th Century, Russell Bufalino (Joe Pesci). Spanning decades, the film chronicles one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in American history, the disappearance of legendary union boss Jimmy Hoffa (Al Pacino), and offers a monumental journey through the hidden corridors of organized crime: its inner workings, rivalries and connections to mainstream politics.
THE IRISHMAN has 5 wins and 2 additional nominations for excellence and is a Metacritic.com “MUST-SEE.”

THE CURRENT WAR: DIRECTOR’S CUT:
Three brilliant visionaries set off in a charged battle for the future in The Current War, the epic story of the cutthroat competition that literally lit up the modern world. Thomas Edison (Benedict Cumberbatch) is on the verge of bringing electricity to Manhattan with his radical new DC technology. On the eve of triumph, his plans are upended by charismatic businessman George Westinghouse (Michael Shannon), who believes he and his partner, the upstart genius Nikolai Tesla (Nicholas Hoult), have a superior idea for how to rapidly electrify America: with AC current. As Edison and Westinghouse grapple for who will power the nation, they spark one of the first and greatest corporate feuds in American history, establishing for future Titans of Industry the need to break all the rules.
THE GOOD LIAR:
Career con artist Roy Courtnay (Ian McKellen) can hardly believe his luck when he meets well-to-do widow Betty McLeish (Helen Mirren) online. As Betty opens her home and life to him, Roy is surprised to find himself caring about her, turning what should be a cut-and-dry swindle into the most treacherous tightrope walk of his life.
