Running Time: 1 Hr 41 Min

Synopsis (IFC Films)
Shot in Southwestern Ohio with lots of Dayton and regional talent in front of and behind the camera! "Three desperate souls must fight their way out of a dead-end world in this bracing, gut-punching glimpse into America’s dark underbelly. Earl (Jamie Bell) is a struggling ex-marine and father determined to make a better life for his family—no matter what it takes. Angus (Frank Grillo) is a violent, unhinged drug dealer who leaves a trail of death and destruction in his wake. And Delia (Margaret Qualley) is a haunted woman who will do anything to escape a life of crime she can no longer bear. In their kill-or-be-killed world, all roads lead to the Donnybrook: an illicit backwoods cage match where bare-knuckled fighters brawl for a shot at a $100,000 prize. It’s either a last-ditch chance at redemption—or a death sentence. Blending unflinching brutality with dreamlike lyricism, director Tim Sutton conjures a mesmerizing, visceral vision of life on the extreme margins."

Synopsis (Focus Features)
"A sweet, naïve young woman trying to make it on her own in New York City, Frances (Chloë Grace Moretz) doesn’t think twice about returning the handbag she finds on the subway to its rightful owner. That owner is Greta (Isabelle Huppert), an eccentric French piano teacher with a love for classical music and an aching loneliness. Having recently lost her mother, Frances quickly grows closer to widowed Greta. The two become fast friends — but Greta’s maternal charms begin to dissolve and grow increasingly disturbing as Frances discovers that nothing in Greta’s life is what it seems in this suspense thriller from Academy Award-winning director Neil Jordan."

REEL LAUGHS MOCKS BACK TO THE FUTURE 2
Rating: Movie PG, Commentary NR
Running Time: 1 Hr 48 Min
» Click here to visit the official website

Synopsis (Reel Laughs)
"Rips in the time/space continuum. An unexplained, slightly inappropriate relationship between an old adult male hermit and his teenaged apprentice. Tossing women into the garbage when they complicate the plot. Awkward sexual tension between mother and son. A director who lied to millions of children, telling them that hoverboards were real. It must be BACK TO THE FUTURE 2, the mediocre sequel set in the future and an alternate present and then back to the past. It’s complicated and it deserves the Reel Laughs treatment. Come see comedians mock this Michael J. Fox classic live on February 28. Tickets $12." Tickets available on-line and in person at THE NEON starting Jan. 30.
