Director: Emil Ben-Shimon
Stars: Evelin Hagoel, Igal Naor, Orna Banai Genre: A bar mitzvah mishap causes a major rift in a devout Orthodox community in Jerusalem.
'A huge box office hit in Israel, the film was written by Shlomit Nehama, and directed by Emil Ben-Shimon. "The Women's Balcony" is an eccentric portrait of an already devout community suddenly under pressure from a super Orthodox rabbi to observe their faith in a more rigid way. While the mood is that of a gentle and affectionate comedy, the film makes some extremely sharp points about fanaticism, sexism masked as holiness, and tolerance among the faithful.' - Roger Ebert

Director: Taylor Sheridan
Stars: Kelsey Asbille, Jeremy Renner, Julia Jones Genre: Crime, Drama, Mystery Western A veteran tracker with the Fish and Wildlife Service helps to investigate the murder of a young Native American woman, and uses the case as a means of seeking redemption for an earlier act of irresponsibility which ended in tragedy.
'“Wind River” is full of vast, scrubby expanses that give way to pristine blankets of white, interrupted only by a snowmobile slashing a solitary path. You can hear the crunch of snow and feel the bitter chill, which runs so deep that it can be deadly. Sheridan drops us in and we know this place immediately; his storytelling is meaty but efficient, and his pacing moves along at a steadily engrossing clip before ultimately exploding in a startling blast of violence.' - Roger Ebert
