Synopsis (Focus Features)
From director Todd Haynes (director of CAROL and FAR FROM HEAVEN), comes his next film shot in Cincinnati - DARK WATERS. This film "tells the shocking and heroic story of an attorney who risks his career and family to uncover a dark secret hidden by one of the world’s largest corporations and to bring justice to a community dangerously exposed for decades to deadly chemicals. Corporate environmental defense attorney Rob Bilott (Academy Award®-nominee Mark Ruffalo) has just made partner at his prestigious Cincinnati law firm in large part due to his work defending Big Chem companies. He finds himself conflicted after he’s contacted by two West Virginia farmers who believe that the local DuPont plant is dumping toxic waste in the area landfill that is destroying their fields and killing their cattle. Hoping to learn the truth about just what is happening, Bilott, with help from his supervising partner in the firm, Tom Terp (Academy Award®-winner Tim Robbins), files a complaint that marks the beginning of an epic 15-year fight—one that will not only test his relationship with his wife, Sarah (Academy Award®-winner Anne Hathaway) but also his reputation, his health and his livelihood."

Synopsis (Neon Rated)
One of the absolute best films of the year...and currently at "99% Fresh" on rottentomatoes. "Meet the Park Family: the picture of aspirational wealth. And the Kim Family, rich in street smarts but not much else. Be it chance or fate, these two houses are brought together and the Kims sense a golden opportunity. Masterminded by college-aged Ki-woo, the Kim children expediently install themselves as tutor and art therapist, to the Parks. Soon, a symbiotic relationship forms between the two families. The Kims provide 'indispensable' luxury services while the Parks obliviously bankroll their entire household. When a parasitic interloper threatens the Kims’ newfound comfort, a savage, underhanded battle for dominance breaks out, threatening to destroy the fragile ecosystem between the Kims and the Parks. By turns darkly hilarious and heart-wrenching, PARASITE showcases a modern master at the top of his game." From Bong Joon Ho - director of THE HOST, MOTHER and SNOWPIERCER. SUBTITLED.

Synopsis (Fox Searchlight)
WINNER OF THE PEOPLE'S CHOICE AWARD at this year's Toronto International Film Festival! (Past winners include SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE, LA LA LAND, IMITATION GAME, THE KING'S SPEECH, SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK, THREE BILLBOARDS...all hits at THE NEON!) Here's a note from the director, "I have always been drawn to stories that see life through children’s eyes. In this case, it happens to be a kid that we might not normally invest in. My grandfather fought against the Nazis in World War II and I’ve always been fascinated by that time and those events. When my mother told me about Christine Leunen’s book Caging Skies, I was drawn in by the fact it was told through the eyes of a German child indoctrinated into hate by adults. Having children of my own, I have become even more aware that adults are supposed to guide children through life and raise them to be better versions of themselves, and yet in times of war, adults are often doing the opposite. In fact, from a child's point of view, during these times adults appear chaotic and absurd when all the world needs is guidance and balance. I experienced a certain level of prejudice growing up as a Māori Jew, so making JOJO RABBIT has been a reminder, especially now, that we need to educate our kids about tolerance and continue to remind ourselves that there’s no place in this world for hate. Children are not born with hate, they are trained to hate. I hope the humour in JOJO RABBIT helps engage a new generation; it's important to keep finding new and inventive ways of telling the horrific story of World War II again and again for new generations, so that our children can listen, learn, and move forward, unified into the future.Here’s to putting an end to ignorance and replacing it with love.” CLOSED CAPTION DEVICES AVAILABLE AVAILABLE FOR THIS FILM.

Synopsis (TIFF Catalog)
Nominated for 4 Golden Globes - including "Best Picture: Drama." "The Catholic Church's papacy is a singular institution, with unique demands placed on the men who would see themselves elevated to it. This decade saw one of the Church's most important moments of transition, but news reports can fail in the face of such enormous, complex change. THE TWO POPES takes us beyond TV images of smoke rising from the Vatican chimney into the hearts, minds, and actions of those charged with leading over a billion faithful. Directed by Brazil's Oscar-nominated Fernando Meirelles (CITY OF GOD) and starring two acting legends in Sir Anthony Hopkins and Jonathan Pryce, this insightful story ushers us behind gilded doors to watch the once and future Popes grapple with faith and religious leadership in a rapidly changing world."

Synopsis (Music Box Films)
Line produced by Dayton's own Karri O'Reilly, this wonderful new film just earned 4 Independent Spirit Award nominations! "Medical transport driver Vic is late, but it’s not his fault. Roads are closed for a protest, and no one else can shuttle his Russian grandfather and émigré friends to a funeral. The new route uproots his scheduled clients, particularly Tracy (Lauren “Lolo” Spencer in a breakout performance), a vibrant young woman with ALS. As the day goes from hectic to off-the-rails, their collective ride becomes a hilarious, compassionate, and intersectional portrait of American dreams and disenchantment."

Rating: PG
Running Time: 2 Hrs 20 Min

Synopsis (Sony)
"Writer-director Greta Gerwig (LADY BIRD) has crafted a LITTLE WOMEN that draws on both the classic novel and the writings of Louisa May Alcott, and unfolds as the author’s alter ego, Jo March, reflects back and forth on her fictional life. In Gerwig’s take, the beloved story of the March sisters – four young women each determined to live life on her own terms -- is both timeless and timely. Portraying Jo, Meg, Amy, and Beth March, the film stars Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, Eliza Scanlen, with Timothée Chalamet as their neighbor Laurie, Laura Dern as Marmee, and Meryl Streep as Aunt March."

Nominated for 6 Golden Globe nominations including "Best Picture: Drama." "Revisiting some of the themes that made his Oscar-nominated TIFF 2005 selection THE SQUID AND THE WHALE so resonant, writer-director Noah Baumbach digs deep into divorce with MARRIAGE STORY. Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson deliver some of their richest work as a couple whose once enviable union crumbles under the weight of mounting resentments and divergent needs."

Synopsis (NYFF Catalog)
See it the way it was meant to be seen - on the big screen! Nominated for 5 Golden Globes including "Best Picture: Drama." "THE IRISHMAN is a richly textured epic of American crime, a dense, complex story told with astonishing fluidity. Based on Charles Brandt’s nonfiction book I Heard You Paint Houses, it is a film about friendship and loyalty between men who commit unspeakable acts and turn on a dime against each other, and the possibility of redemption in a world where it seems as distant as the moon. The roster of talent behind and in front of the camera is astonishing, and at the core of THE IRISHMAN are four great artists collectively hitting a new peak: Joe Pesci as Pennsylvania mob boss Russell Bufalino, Al Pacino as Teamsters president Jimmy Hoffa, and Robert De Niro as their right-hand man, Frank Sheeran, each working in the closest harmony imaginable with the film’s incomparable creator, Martin Scorsese."

Synopsis (Dale Farmer)
Dale Farmer is bringing his award-winning film to THE NEON on Thursday, January 16. "Deeply infused with the traditional Appalachian musical genres of Old Time and Bluegrass, THE MOUNTAIN MINOR tells an overlooked story about the people and culture behind the resurgence of American Roots Music today and highlights artful responses to the difficult circumstances of human migration. In the 1920s-1950s, millions of Appalachians left their homes in the mountains and migrated to urban Midwestern centers in Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Michigan. The Mountain Minor is the story of a life-worn Charlie Abner, a generation later, as he struggles with leaving his present life and family in Cincinnati, Ohio to return to the Kentucky Mountain home and musical heritage that once defined him. The story is partially told in flashbacks to depression era Eastern Kentucky, when Charlie’s parents, Oza and Vestal Abner, face the difficult decision to leave the way of life they know and move to Ohio for employment and better opportunities. This is not only film director Dale Farmer’s family story, but the story of thousands of families that left their mountain homes to move to the Dayton, Ohio area to become the heart of the working middle class. This film is unique in that all of its principal actors are traditional musicians—such as Smithsonian Folkways artist Elizabeth LaPrelle and acclaimed banjoist and fiddler Dan Gellert—and they perform all of the music in the film. Pre-film music by The Corn Drinkers will start at 7:30, and the movie will play at 8:00. A Q&A will follow the film with the writer/director Dale Farmer and actors Ma Crow, Warren & Judy Waldron and Amy Cogan Clay." Tickets are $12 each and will go on sale Dec. 16.
