Bad Teacher: Shut the Front Door

Some teachers just don't give an F. For example, there's Elizabeth. She's foul-mouthed, ruthless, and inappropriate. She drinks, she gets high, and she can't wait to marry her meal ticket and get out of her bogus day job. When she's dumped by her fiance, she sets her plan in motion to win over a rich, handsome substitute - competing for his affections with an overly energetic colleague, Amy. When Elizabeth also finds herself fighting off the advances of a sarcastic, irreverent gym teacher, the consequences of her wild and outrageous schemes give her students, her coworkers, and even herself an education like no other.

X-Men: First Class - Acceptance

X-MEN FIRST CLASS charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga, and reveals a secret history of famous global events. Before mutants had revealed themselves to the world, and before Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Not archenemies, they were instead at first the closest of friends, working together with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to prevent nuclear Armageddon. In the process, a grave rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto's Brotherhood and Professor X's X-Men. (Source)

The Help - Featurette

Based on one of the most talked about books in years and a #1 New York Times best-selling phenomenon, "The Help" stars Emma Stone ("Easy A") as Skeeter, Academy Award(R)-nominated Viola Davis ("Doubt") as Aibileen and Octavia Spencer as Minny--three very different, extraordinary women in Mississippi during the 1960s, who build an unlikely friendship around a secret writing project that breaks societal rules and puts them all at risk. From their improbable alliance a remarkable sisterhood emerges, instilling all of them with the courage to transcend the lines that define them, and the realization that sometimes those lines are made to be crossed--even if it means bringing everyone in town face-to-face with the changing times. Deeply moving, filled with poignancy, humor and hope, "The Help" is a timeless and universal story about the ability to create change. (Source)

A Love Affair of Sorts - Trailer

Blurring the edges between reality and fiction, and in an era where we all live in public to a certain extent, A LOVE AFFAIR OF SORTS is a modern twist on a love affair in the digital age. The first feature film to be shot entirely on a flip camera, its narrative follows two lonely strangers in modern day Los Angeles, during the holiday season. The film begins with David (Director David Guy Levy), a painter, and Enci (Lili Bordan), a Hungarian nanny, who meet in a bookstore when he catches her shoplifting on his ever-present flip camera. As they start a tentative relationship, he captures it all on his digital camera, though nothing about the situation is as straightforward as it seems. Things are complicated further with the addition of Enci's boyfriend, Boris (Ivan Kamaras), and David's brutally honest friend, Jonathan (Jonathan Beckerman as himself, and unaware until the end of the shoot that the film he was in was fictional). Chronicling the couple's desire to be constantly filmed, and their need to really connect in the lonely landscape of Los Angeles at Christmastime, A LOVE AFFAIR OF SORTS takes a wry look at the way technology brings us together while also keeping us at a distance, and how it may have changed what it is to love and be loved.
