Two different worlds intersect in this engrossing drama, an Oscar winner for Best Foreign Language Film, about a doctor who travels between his home in Denmark and his difficult work at an African refugee camp.

Woody Allen's latest comedy is set during a family’s trip to Paris and features Rachel McAdams and Owen Wilson as a young couple struggling with the notion that a life different from their own may be a better one.

A thoughtful meditation on family, spirituality, and the meaning of life, this impressionistic drama from the director of Badlands follows the life journey of the eldest son of a Midwestern family in the 1950s and his struggle to reconcile with his father in his adult years.

Oliver (Ewan McGregor) reflects on the death of his father (Christopher Plummer), who came out of the closet at age 75 to live an unabashedly fabulous gay life. This uniquely funny film celebrates family and the unpredictable nature of love.
