 November 26: A Brilliant Young Mind (UK., 111 min., 2015, rated PG-13). In a world difficult to comprehend, Nathan struggles to connect with those around him - most of all his loving mother - but finds comfort in numbers. When Nathan is taken under the wing of unconventional and anarchic teacher, Mr. Humphreys, the pair forge an unusual friendship and Nathan's talents win him a place on the UK team at the International Mathematics Olympiad. From suburban England to bustling Taipei and back again, Nathan builds complex relationships as he is confronted by the irrational nature of love. This heart-warming and life-affirming story follows the unconventional and hilarious relationship between student and teacher - whose roles are often reversed - and the unfathomable experience of first love - even when you don't understand what love is.

 December 10: Rosewater (USA, 103 min., 2014, rated R) Directed by Jon Stewart, Rosewater is based on a true story about Maziar Bahari, a Canadian broadcast journalist who endured personal risk by sending footage of the street riots to the BBC and was subsequently arrested by police and brutally interrogated in prison for 118 days. An interview and sketch that Maziar did with a journalist on The Daily Show was used as evidence that Maziar was a spy and in communication with the American government and the CIA. The only distinguishable feature about his captor is the distinct smell of rosewater. With Bahari's wife leading an international campaign to have her husband freed, and Western media outlets keeping the story alive.
