“Ken Loach has taken a despicable episode of modern Irish history—the 1933 deportation without trial of one of its own citizens, James Gralton—and made a surprisingly lovely, heartfelt film from it with Jimmy's Hall.” Scott Foundas, Variety. In 1921, Jimmy Gralton's sin was to build a dance hall on a rural crossroads in Ireland, where young people could come to learn, argue, and dream, but above all to dance and have fun.

109 minutes; PG-13

The Diary of a Teenage Girl is based on Phoebe Gloeckner's novel of the same name, hailed by Salon as "one of the most brutally honest, shocking, tender and beautiful portrayals of growing up female in America." Writer/director Marielle Heller unlocks this diary with a richly comedic and deeply personal vision. In her feature film directorial debut, Heller brings Gloeckner's book to life with fearless performances, a stirring score, inventive graphic novel-like animation sequences, imagination, humor, and heart.
