March 16 to March 23
Starring Rhys Ifans, Vanessa Redgrave, Joely Richardson, David Thewlis, Xavier Samuel, Sebastian Armesto, Rafe Spall, Edward Hogg, Jamie Campbell Bower and Derek Jacobi.
Set in the political snake-pit of Elizabethan England, ANONYMOUS speculates on an issue that has for centuries intrigued academics and brilliant minds such as Mark Twain, Charles Dickens, and Sigmund Freud, namely: who actually created the body of work credited to William Shakespeare? Experts have debated, books have been written, and scholars have devoted their lives to protecting or debunking theories surrounding the authorship of the most renowned works in English literature. ANONYMOUS poses one possible answer, focusing on a time when scandalous political intrigue, illicit romances in the Royal Court, and the schemes of greedy nobles lusting for the power of the throne were brought to light in the most unlikely of places: the London stage.

A grieving widow runs into a frustrating wall of silence while investigating the unexplained death of her husband during a rowdy New Year's Eve party. When Bob McIntosh (David Cubitt) politely told a group of hard-partying teens that a room in his friend's house was off-limits, he never anticipated the brutal violence that followed. Frightened and desperate to avoid spending the rest of their lives in prison, the high school kids responsible for killing Bob refuse to deviate from their carefully crafted alibi during repeated police interviews. When the investigation headed by Detective Paul Jackson (Greg Grunberg) stalls out as a direct result of that secret pact, Bob's desperate widow Katy (Kim Raver) takes the investigation into her own hands.

Tim Lippe (Ed Helms) lives in the sleepy little town of Brown Valley, Wisconsin. He was the guy people always thought would go places, but then, he just didn't. When he's sent to Cedar Rapids, Iowa to represent his company at an insurance convention, he has no idea what he's in for. He soon finds himself under the "guidance" of three convention veterans. From the minute he checks into his hotel with his ancient American Tourister and cummerbund money-belt, it's clear Tim has no idea how the modern world really works. He's soon smitten with seductive Nebraskan insurance agent Joan (Anne Heche) and awed by his experienced roommates, the straight-shooting Ronald Wilkes (Isiah Whitlock Jr.) and the suspicious Dean Zeigler (John C. Reilly).
The Extra Man (Un perfetto gentiluomo)
Starring Kevin Kline, Katie Holmes, John C. Reilly, Paul Dano and Alicia Goranson.
The Extra Man follows Louis Ives (Paul Dano), a lonely dreamer who fancies himself the hero of an F. Scott Fitzgerald novel. When a deeply embarrassing incident forces him to leave his job at an exclusive Princeton prep school, Louis heads to New York City to make a fresh start. He quickly finds a 9 to 5 job at an environmental magazine, where he encounters an entrancing, green-obsessed co-worker Mary (Katie Holmes). But, what really sparks Louis' imagination is his new home life. He rents a room in the ramshackle apartment of Henry Harrison (Kevin Kline), a penniless, wildly eccentric and brilliant playwright. When Henry's not dancing alone to obscure music or singing operettas, he's performing - with great panache - the duties of an "extra man," a social escort for the wealthy widows of Manhattan high society. The two men develop a volatile mentorship, which leads to a series of urban adventures - encountering everything from a leaping lion to a wildly jealous hirsute neighbor to drunken nonagenarians to a shady Swiss hunchback. Along his exploration into the heart of New York City, Henry and Louis have unexpected influences on each other and form a memorable bond that bridges their differences.
