Basilicata Coast To Coast
Con Alessandro Gassman, Paolo Briguglia, Max Gazzè, Rocco Papaleo, Giovanna Mezzogiorno, Claudia Potenza, Michela Andreozzi, Antonio Gerardi, Augusto Fornari, Gaetano Amato.
Basilicata coast to coast è una commedia musicale, un viaggio denso di imprevisti e di incontri inaspettati che porta una combriccola di musicisti a mettersi in viaggio per partecipare al Festival del teatro-canzone di Scanzano Jonico, attraversando a piedi la Basilicata, dal Tirreno allo Ionio, lungo il tragitto che dà il titolo al film. Il viaggio avrà per tutti un valore terapeutico. Basilicata coast to coast è una commedia corale, picaresca e canterina, malinconica e stralunata, che tra gag esilaranti, sagaci dialoghi e amare constatazioni di vita, prende quota per crescere ininterrottamente fino all'epilogo a sorpresa.
Starring Julianne Moore, Liam Neeson, Amanda Seyfried and Max Thieriot.
When Catherine (Julianne Moore), a successful doctor, begins to question her husband David's (Liam Neeson) fidelity, she sets out to resolve her suspicions with the help of an alluring young woman, Chloe (Amanda Seyfried).

Starring Timothy Olyphant, Radha Mitchell, Danielle Panabaker and Joe Anderson.

But one night, one of them comes to a school baseball game with a loaded shotgun, ready to kill. Another man burns down his own house - after locking his wife and young son in a closet inside. Within days, the town has transformed into a sickening asylum; people who days ago lived quiet, unremarkable lives have now become depraved, blood-thirsty killers, hiding in the darkness with guns and knives. Sheriff Dutton tries to make sense of what’s happening as the horrific, nonsensical violence escalates. Something is infecting the citizens of Ogden Marsh... with insanity. Now complete anarchy reigns as one by one the townsfolk succumb to an unknown toxin and turn sadistically violent. In an effort to keep the madness contained, the government uses deadly force to close off all access and won't let anyone in or out - even those uninfected. The few still sane find themselves trapped: Sheriff Dutton; his pregnant wife, Judy (Radha Mitchell); Becca (Danielle Panabaker), an assistant at the medical center; and Russell (Joe Anderson), Dutton's deputy and right-hand man. Forced to band together, an ordinary night becomes a horrifying struggle for survival as they do their best to get out of town alive.

Starring Viggo Mortensen, Charlize Theron, Guy Pearce, Kodi Smit-McPhee and Robert Duvall.
It is more than ten years since the world was destroyed by what, nobody can say. Whatever it was, is that there is no energy, no power, no vegetation, no food. The Man (Viggo Mortensen) and The Boy (Kodi Smit-McPhee) are on the move with all their precious possessions - whatever food and clothing they can scrounge - on their backs and in a shopping cart outfitted with a bicycle mirror so they can see who's coming up behind them. Their desperate, improvised traveling gear and their scruffy unwashed bodies give them the look of the homeless. And that is what they are. That's what everybody is in this lifeless frontier. Even in this bleak universe, there are moments of happiness. The child's innate goodness, his compassion and his sense of wonder and curiosity remind the man of why he must keep on going no matter what, even when he has forgotten why he must do it.
