You Were Never Really HereApril 6

A man, a hammer, and a girl he never imagined he’d have the heart to care for. Winner of Best Actor and Best Screenplay awards at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, Joaquin Phoenix’s performance promises a gut-punch to the psyche.

A Quiet PlaceApril 6

The louder the scream, the better the chance they’ll find you. John Krasinski and partner in crime, Emily Blunt, tackle the horror genre with a unique twist that could very well lead us all to a land of silent nightmares.

Indian HorseApril 13

An adaptation of the late Richard Wagamese’s great Canadian novel, Indian Horse follows a young Indigenous boy in 1970s Canada. From hopeful beginnings as a talented ice hockey player, the boy grows up to face the harsh realities of holding on to identity in a world that’s trying to rinse it out of you.

Super Troopers 2April 20

The Broken Lizard comedy group is back, 17 years after the unconventional state troopers first pranked, drank, and smoked their way into everyone’s hearts. With the return of the original cast, the sequel promises to be undeniably unwholesome in all the right ways.

DisobedienceApril 20

From Academy Award Winning Director Sebastián Lelio comes a passionate take on forbidden desire. A shunned woman returns home and reignites the relationship with a female childhood friend that cast her out in the first place. With sweltering friction, the film stars Rachel Weisz and Rachel McAdams.
