Now that The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is full up with its long-term residents, co-managers Muriel Donnelly (Maggie Smith) and Sonny Kapoor (Dev Patel) have a dream of expansion, and they've found just the place: The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. With plans underway, Evelyn and Douglas (Judi Dench and Bill Nighy) venture into the Jaipur workforce, wondering where their regular breakfast dates will lead. As his marriage to Sunaina (Tina Desai), the love of his life, quickly approaches, Sonny finds his plans for the new hotel making more claims on his time than he has available. As the big day nears, family and guests alike find themselves swept up in the irresistible intoxication of an Indian wedding. -- (C) Fox Searchlight "...a sweet and often funny movie populated by likable actors who know their business." -Philip Marten, Arkansas Democrat Gazette

 Inequality, injustice and the demands of the world we live in cause stress and depression for many people. This is a movie about those people. Vulnerable in the face of a reality that shifts and suddenly turns unpredictable, the characters of Wild Tales cross the thin line that divides civilization and barbarism. A lover's betrayal, a return to the repressed past and the violence woven into everyday encounters drive the characters to madness as they cede to the undeniable pleasure of losing control. (C) Sony Classics  "It's an explosively funny film, made with great energy." -Paul Byrnes, Sydney Morning Herald

Red Army is a feature documentary about the Soviet Union and the most successful dynasty in sports history: the Red Army hockey team. Told from the perspective of its captain Slava Fetisov, the story portrays his transformation from national hero to political enemy. From the USSR to Russia, the film examines how sport mirrors social and cultural movements and parallels the rise and fall of the Red Army team with the Soviet Union. (C) Sony Classics  "Fascinating, funny, heroic, moving and may even make hockey fans out of nonbelievers." -John Anderson, Newsday
