Helene, Lili and Rose met in Auschwitz, where the three twenty-year-old Jewish girls were deported. Thanks to German-speaking Dutch Lili, who was working in the camp kitchen, the two French girls survived. However, after the liberation of the camp, they lost touch. Lili went back to the Netherlands. Rose married a former deportee and settled down in Canada. Helene returned home to France, where she met an old childhood sweetheart, and married him, aware of his impotency caused by sinister doctors carrying out experiments on him in the concentration camp. Determined to find her old companions, Helene puts an ad in a deportees newspaper. Against all odds, the ad is answered and the women are reunited. The reunion takes place in Berck Plage in the north of France. The women rediscover each other, as well as help each other to overcome their Auschwitz demons.

STARRING

IAN HARDING (Pretty Little Liars) & EVANNA LYNCH (Harry Potter Series - Luna Lovegood)

NEW YORK CITY, 1968 Max Bornstein had the wit, looks and charm that would carry him beyond the typical man's troubles. He was untouchable... Yet the typical man's troubles were the least of Max's worries: He was a full-time dope fiend and a part-time father working within the underground, highly illegal pornography industry.

BASED ON THE TRUE LIFE EVENTS OF MAX BORNSTEIN

NOVEMBER 3rd

Based on a true story. Marathon is a tale of courage, endurance, and finally, the triumph of love.

Marathon explores the relationship between Richard Harteis and William Meredith, former US Poet Laureate and winner of every major American award for poetry including the 1988 Pulitzer Prize.

In the 17th year of their friendship, William sustains a debilitating stroke. Richard stands by his partner, fighting for the right to care for him, despite the inevitable restrictions on his own life, and against the wishes of William's family. Though the path they have chosen is not an easy one, their love and compassion see them through days of illness, therapy, and healing.

The power to overcome illness with dignity becomes a lesson in physical and spiritual endurance, hard won knowledge indeed. Marathon displays the resolve, discipline and courage of two human beings running for their lives, qualities that can sustain us all in life's marathon. In this moving account, we see how two fellow runners have joined the course, and just how far our dreams can take us before we cross the finish line.

Special Features: Television Interview with Producer Richard Harteis, Director Biju Viswanath & Screen writer Celia de Fréine; William Meredith reading at the Library of Congress; Interview with Marathon Runner John Kelly; Documentary about the William Meredith Foundation; Marathon Trailer

Giving possibly the best performance of his distinguished career, two-time Academy Award nominee John Hurt (Midnight Express, The Elephant Man) gives a bravura portrayal of British gay icon Quentin Crisp in An Englishman in New York, an exhilarating, funny and inspiring story focusing on Crisp’s emigration to the United States the final years of his life.

After the film version of his autobiography The Naked Civil Servant is released to great acclaim, author, artist and raconteur Crisp moves to New York City to star in a one-man off-Broadway show. What was supposed to be a month turns into decades as Crisp regales and captivates New York audiences with his wit and candor on a lifetime lived as an outsider. The film traces his theatrical successes, many friendships and controversies—but always living life on his own terms.

Featuring a renowned supporting cast including Tony Award-winning actors Denis O’Hare (Milk), Swoosie Kurtz (And the Band Played On, “Sisters”) and Cynthia Nixon (“Sex and the City”), An Englishman in New York gives stirring articulation to one of the most unique voices of the 20th century—a life befitting the beautiful evocative title song by Sting.
