2010 ACADEMY AWARDÂ® NOMINEE
2010 GOLDEN GLOBEÂ® NOMINEE
Grand Jury Prize winner and Golden Palm nominee this year at Cannes, writer/director Jacques Audiard (READ MY LIPS, THE BEAT THAT MY HEART SKIPPED) continues his specialty in the underground crime genre with his fifth feature: A PROPHET. A huge success at the French box office, the film represents France as the official submission at the Oscars this year, for which it received a nomination. This internationally critically acclaimed prison drama stars newcomer Tahar Rahim as Malik, a part Arab, part Corsican teen condemned to six years in prison. Confronted by the leader of the Corsican gang (Niels Arestrup â?? THE BEAT THAT MY HEART SKIPPED) currently ruling the prison, Malik is forced to carry out a number of missions to prove himself and, as he rises through the prison ranks, secretly devises his own criminal network.

OPENS TODAY: Dallas & Houston (advance tickets) THE IMAGINARIUM OF DR. PARNASSUS
Paying tribute to the late Academy Award winner Heath Ledger in his final role, THE IMAGINARIUM OF DOCTOR PARNASSUS is a fantastical morality tale set in the present-day. Blessed with the extraordinary gift of guiding othersâ?? imaginations, Dr. Parnassus (Christopher Plummer) heads up his â??Imaginariumâ??, a travelling show where audience members must choose between light and joy or darkness and gloom. Directed by Academy Award winner Terry Gilliam (MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL , LIFE OF BRIAN , FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS), THE IMAGINARIUM also features Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell and Jude Law.
OPENS 02/05 AT THE ANGELIKA NEW YORK
A festival favorite, pulling in an impressive 19 awards including seven Robert Awards (Danish OscarsÂ®), TERRIBLY HAPPY is Denmarkâ??s official entry for consideration in the Academy Awardsâ??Â® Foreign Language Film category. Reminiscent of the Coen Brothers BLOOD SIMPLE and NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN, TERRIBLY HAPPY displays a unique, often macabre vision of the darkest depths to which people will go to achieve security and belonging. Robert (Jakob Cedergren) is a Copenhagen police officer who, following a nervous breakdown, is transferred to a small provincial town to take on the mysteriously vacated Marshall position. Robertâ??s big city temperament makes it impossible for him to fit in and he quickly spirals downward in this darkly comedic tale.
