From visionary director Tim Burton, this live-action adventure expands on the beloved classic story where differences are celebrated, family is cherished, and dreams take flight.
Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) enlists former star Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) and his children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) to care for a new-born elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus. But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an incredible comeback, attracting persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland. Dumbo soars to new heights alongside a charming and spectacular aerial artist, Colette Marchant (Eva Green), until Holt learns that beneath its shiny veneer, Dreamland is full of dark secrets.

In a picture-postcard suburban home just before Christmas, a mother (Julia Roberts) is shocked but happy to find that her son (Lucas Hedges) is home from the drug rehabilitation centre to which he has been sent.
19-year-old Ben Burns (Hedges) unexpectedly returns home to his family's suburban home on Christmas Eve morning. Ben's mother, Holly (Roberts), is relieved and welcoming but wary of her son staying clean. Over a turbulent 24 hours, new truths are revealed, and a mother's undying love for her son is tested as she does everything in her power to keep him safe. Refreshingly understated, ‘Ben Is Back’ subverts family drama stereotypes - and provides a forum for terrific performances from Hedges and Roberts. Also stars Courtney B. Vance (‘The People V. O.J. Simpson’) and Kathryn Newton (‘Lady Bird’).

Jafar Panahi (‘Crimson Gold’, ‘The Circle’) returns with a delightful road movie, Iranian style, full of delicate metaphors and at times laugh out loud funny.
Well-known actress Behnaz Jafari is distraught by a provincial girl's video plea for help - oppressed by her family to not pursue her studies at the Tehran drama conservatory. Behnaz abandons her shoot and turns to filmmaker Jafar Panahi to help solve the mystery of the young girl's troubles. They travel by car to the rural northwest where they have amusing encounters with the charming folk of the girl's mountain village. But the city visitors soon discover that the protection of age-old traditions is as generous as local hospitality. Observational, insightful, and ultimately powerful, 3 Faces adds another quietly thought-provoking chapter to writer-director Jafar Panahi's filmography. (Subtitles)

When a Detective is called to investigate the shooting of leading astrophysicist and black hole expert, she is affected in ways she struggles to comprehend.
Mike Hoolihan (Patricia Clarkson) is an unconventional New Orleans cop investigating the murder of renowned astrophysicist Jennifer Rockwell (Mamie Gummer), a black hole expert found shot to death in her observatory. As Mike tumbles down the rabbit hole of the disturbing, labyrinthine case, she finds herself grappling with increasingly existential questions of quantum mechanics, parallel universes, and exploding stars - cosmic secrets that may hold the key to unravelling the crime, while throwing into doubt her very understanding of reality. Awash in dreamlike, neo-noir atmosphere, this one-of-a-kind thriller is both a tantalizing whodunnit and a rich, metaphysical mind-bender. This stylish, psychological neo-noir co-stars James Caan, Jackie Weaver and Toby Jones.
