A tattoo artist and a banjo player meet cute, marry, and live happily ever after, only to have their lives shattered when their young daughter is diagnosed with a grave illness. An unlikely mash-up of old-fashioned melodrama and bluegrass musical, this newest film from the gifted Belgian director Felix van Grœningen (The Misfortunates) takes us on a one-of-a-kind emotional journey that will not leave a dry eye in the house.

109 minutes; Flemish with English subtitles

Casting off his Harry Potter robes, Daniel Radcliffe delivers a revelatory performance as poet Allen Ginsberg, who as a Columbia University student in the mid-1940s meets William Burroughs (Ben Foster) and Jack Kerouac (Jack Huston) and soon finds himself implicated in a shocking murder. An incisive portrait of literary ambition, sexual awakening, and emotional violence, Kill Your Darlings—the directorial debut of the gifted John Krokidas—reveals to us the giants of the Beat Generation as never before.

Over the course of five decades, in movies like China is Near (1962) and Vincere (2008), the great Marco Bellocchio has explored questions of faith, politics, and Italian history. His haunting new film may be his most fearless yet: a fact-based drama about the divisive case of Eluana Englaro, a comatose woman whose father campaigned to have her removed from life support, to the vigorous objections of the Vatican and the Italian Prime Minister. The extraordinary ensemble cast includes Isabelle Huppert, Toni Servillo, and Fabrizio Falco.
