ROSEWATER  (R)  
-Baxter Avenue Theatres

Jon Stewart, host and executive producer of "The Daily Show," makes a remarkable screenwriting and directing debut with Rosewater. It tells the story of Tehran-born Maziar Bahari (Gael García Bernal, The Motorcycle Diaries), a broadcast journalist with Canadian citizenship living in London, who left his pregnant wife (Claire Foy) in the UK and returned to Tehran to cover the controversial 2009 Presidential election. At great personal risk Bahari obtained and submitted camera footage to the BBC of the unfolding street riots that protested the election "results." Soon afterwards he was arrested by Revolutionary Guard police, led by a man identifying himself only as "Rosewater" (Kim Bodnia), who proceeded to torture and interrogate the journalist over the next 118 days. Meanwhile Bahari's wife led an international campaign from London to have her husband freed, and Western media outlets including "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" continued to keep the story alive. Based on Bahari's best-selling memoir Then They Came for Me: A Family's Story of Love, Captivity, and Survival.

LOUISVILLE EXCLUSIVE/NEW RELEASE
A critical favorite at this year's Cannes Film Festival, where it took the Jury Prize in Un Certain Regard, this wickedly funny and precisely observed psychodrama tells the story of a model Swedish family—handsome businessman Tomas, his willowy wife Ebba and their two blond children—on a skiing holiday in the French Alps. The sun is shining and the slopes are spectacular but, during a lunch at a mountainside restaurant, an avalanche suddenly bears down on the happy diners. With people fleeing in all directions and his wife and children in a state of panic, Tomas makes a decision that will shake his marriage to its core and leave him struggling to reclaim his role as family patriarch.

When the town's villain, Archibald Snatcher (Ben Kingsley), comes up with a plot to get rid of the Boxtrolls, Eggs decides to venture above ground, "into the light," where he meets and teams up with fabulously feisty Winnie (Elle Fanning). Together, they devise a daring plan to save Eggs' family. The Boxtrolls also features the voice talents of Tracy Morgan, Richard Ayoade, Nick Frost, Jared Harris, Simon Pegg and Toni Collette.
