Parallel Love
-the alt-rock indie band Luxury tries to make it big in a small town in Georgia. A life-altering accident on the road to a gig re-orders their priorities and some of the band members become Eastern Orthodox priests.

We’ll just come right out and say it. We’re Focus Features junkies.

It started with Far From Heaven and 18 years later we’re still trying to watch whatever they put in front of us.

A Tiny Ripple of Hope Online Poster

This past weekend one of our favorite film festivals kicked off its 27th installment: Slamdance.
