May 7: Our Little Sister * (2014,
Japan, 128 min., PG) A bittersweet family drama from the director of Like
Father, Like Son, this is a tender and often very funny portrait of three
sisters who, after their father's death, take in the half-sister they never
knew they had until his funeral. This is a story of acceptance and
responsibility, an endearing reminder that families should always be ready to
make room for one more.
May 14: Concussion * (2015,
US, 135 min., PG-13) In Pittsburgh an accomplished pathologist, Dr. Bennet
Omalu (Will Smith), uncovers the truth about brain damage in football players
who suffer repeated concussions in the course of normal play. The film reveals
how shockingly dangerous American football is for its professional players,
twenty-eight percent of whom will suffer brain damage during their brief
playing careers. Dr. Omalu's research brought these tragic facts to the
attention of the world.
