CALVARY starts Friday, August 29

Back in March, many of you enjoyed John Michael McDonagh’s The Guard. Now the writer/director has reunited with one of his leads in that film, Brendan Gleeson, for a new, rather different, film, Calvary. Gleeson plays Father James Lavelle, a good priest who is faced with troubling circumstances brought about by a mysterious member of his parish. This unseen person threatens to kill Father James in a week’s time. Although the priest continues to comfort his own fragile daughter (played by Kelly Reilly…Gleeson’s character became a priest after his wife died) and to help members of his church with their various problems, he feels a foreboding sinister force closing in, and begins to wonder if he will have the courage to face his own personal Calvary.

Also starring Chris O’Dowd, M. Emmet Walsh, and Marie-Josée Croze, Calvary is “an inventive whodunit with a pitch-black heart” (Indiewire).

THE CONGRESS starts Friday, August 29

More than two decades after catapulting to stardom with The Princess Bride, an aging actress (Robin Wright, playing a version of herself) decides to take her final job: preserving her digital likeness for a future Hollywood. Through a deal brokered by her loyal longtime agent (Harvey Keitel) and the head of Miramount Studios (Danny Huston), her alias will be controlled by the studio, and will star in any film they want with no restrictions. In return, she receives healthy compensation so she can care for her ailing son and her digitized character will stay forever young. Twenty years later, under the creative vision of the studio’s head animator (Jon Hamm), Wright’s digital double rises to immortal stardom. With her contract expiring, she is invited to take part in “The Congress” convention as she makes her comeback straight into the world of future fantasy cinema.

John Waters’ POLYESTER in Odorama starts Friday, September 5

We realized last fall when we showed I Am Divine how intense the love for John Waters and Divine really is, so we are pleased to screen John Waters’ 1981 classic Polyester in a new digital transfer, beginning Friday, September 5, complete with Odorama scratch-and-sniff cards.

Produced, written and directed by Waters, Polyester is a comic tale starring Divine as Francine, a housewife driven to the brink of insanity by her nightmarish husband, children, and mother. She finds true love with Todd Tomorrow (’60s heartthrob Tab Hunter), a handsome man driving a white Corvette. The film also stars many of the Dreamlanders, as Waters’ troupe of regular actors is known, including Mink Stole, Edith Massey, Mary Vivian Pearce, Cookie Mueller, and Pat Moran, among others.

Courtesy of Warner Brothers, Odorama cards, exactly the same as those circulated with the 1981 release, will be available. As in the original theatrical showings, scents are arranged by number, with audiences encouraged to scratch the card when the corresponding number flashes onscreen.

IFC Midnights: BENEATH starts Friday, August 15

30 Days of Night: Dark Days writer/director/producer and Bloomfield Hills native Ben Ketai is back with a new scary movie, this one inspired by actual events.

At a coal mine in a blue-collar town it’s the last day of work for veteran miner George Marsh (Jeff Fahey). His daughter Samantha (Kelly Noonan), a feisty environmental lawyer whose politics are bitterly opposed by her father, celebrates the occasion by accompanying him underground. She’s escorted by old flame Randy Bennings (Joey Kern); no sooner do they descend to the coal face, however, than a drilling machine malfunctions and punches through a supporting wall. A cave-in kills several workers and several others go missing. The crew foreman, Mundy (Brent Briscoe), is grievously injured.

The shocked survivors retreat to a claustrophobic rescue chamber. While they wait for surface workers to reach them they hear terrifying, almost-human sounds from the bowels of the mine. After arguing among themselves, they leave the chamber to discover the noises’ source. Their frenzied efforts find nothing—except evidence of a similar disaster more than 90 years ago.

Meanwhile: Samantha begins experiencing horrific visions. Several of the men panic, are separated from the group, and murdered– gruesomely—by unseen assailants. As the air runs out and the death count rises, those who remain fight to separate their worst fears from reality.
