Hairspray

Starring: Divine, Debbie Harry, Ricki Lake, Ruth Brown

Ricki Lake and Divine star in John Water's bubble-gum comedic musical masterpiece. When Tracy auditions for a spot on a popular teen dance show, she beats out the spiteful Amber von Tussle, winning over Amber's boyfriend in the process. After meeting some black students at her school, Tracy begins to push for more racial integration on the dance show. This gets her into trouble on many sides, especially with Amber's pushy parents, played by Sonny Bono and Deborah Harry.

  • Director: John Waters
  • Rating: PG
  • Runtime: 1 hour 36 minutes
  • Genre: Comedy, Musical

“It's light and airy, but it will stick around: the first aerosol movie.”

Black Panther

Starring: Chadwick Boseman, Danai Gurira, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Daniel Kaluuya, Forest Whitaker, Letitia Wright, Angela Bassett, Andy Serkis, Martin Freeman

After his father's death, King T’Challa returns home to the reclusive, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to serve as his country’s new leader. However, T’Challa soon finds that he is challenged for the throne from factions within his own country. When two foes conspire to destroy Wakanda, the hero known as Black Panther must team up with C.I.A. agent Everett K. Ross and members of the Dora Milaje, Wakanadan special forces, to prevent Wakanda from being dragged into a world war.

  • Director: Ryan Coogler
  • Rating: PG-13
  • Runtime: 2 hours 14 minutes
  • Genre: Adventure, Action

“One of the year's best films, and one that transcends the superhero genre to emerge as an epic of operatic proportions. The numerous battle sequences that are staples of the genre are present, but they float on the surface of a deep ocean of character development and attention to details both grandiose and minute.”

The Doctor From India

Starring: Dr. Vasant Lad, Deepak Chopra, Robert Svoboda, David Frawley, and Claudia Welch

The Doctor From India is a meditative and immersive portrait of the life and work of Dr. Vasant Lad, the holistic health pioneer who first brought the ancient medical practice of Ayurveda from India to the west in the late 1970s. Integrating his gifts as both a healer and a mystic, Dr. Lad has dedicated his life to sharing what is considered the oldest healthcare system on earth in the complex medical landscape of the United States. This is the beautiful and inspiring story of a man who has for decades been quietly at the center of a revolutionary movement to change the way we care for our bodies and our spirits.

  • Director: Jeremy Frindel
  • Runtime: 1 hour 29 minutes
  • Genre: Documentary

“The Doctor from India radiates effortlessly with a heartfelt earnestness... As we continue to re-incorporate our ancient health systems into contemporary medical sciences, there is much we need still must learn about what constitutes healthy living. While the debate still rages about the utility of Ayurveda, Lad continues to be a source of inspiration and healing to the communities he and his clinics serve. This film spotlights a niche of the human culture well worth exploring”

The Big Bad Fox & Other Tales

From the creators of the Academy Award-nominated Ernest & Celestine comes another hilarious, heartwarming tale of animal misfits destined to become a classic. The countryside isn’t always as calm and peaceful as it’s made out to be, and the animals on this farm are particularly agitated: a fox who mothers a family of chicks, a rabbit who plays the stork, and a duck who wants to be Santa Claus. If you think life in the country is a walk in the park, think again! Directors Benjamin Renner and Patrick Imbert adapt Renner’s own acclaimed graphic novel into a delirious, delightful triptych of interlocking stories, with a pacing and visual spontaneity that harkens back to classic Looney Tunes shorts and slapstick two-reelers. But underneath the gags (and there are plenty of them), the three stories offer a sensitive and beautiful portrayal of family and the anxieties of modern life.

  • Director: Benjamin Renner, Patrick Imbert
  • Runtime: 1 hour 23 minutes
  • Genre: Animation, Family

“A balance of absurdity and insight is crucial to each adventure, which hews close to Looney Tunes... offbeat gags, ample emotion and parallels with human nature all go hand-in-hand.”
