Before she becomes Cruella de Vil, teenaged Estella has a dream. She wishes to become a fashion designer, having been gifted with talent, innovation, and ambition all in equal measures. But life seems intent on making sure her dreams never come true. Having wound up penniless and orphaned in London at 12, 4 years later Estella runs wild through the city streets with her best friends and partners-in-(petty)-crime, Horace and Jasper, two amateur thieves. When a chance encounter vaults Estella into the world of the young rich and famous, however, she begins to question the existence she's built for herself in London and wonders whether she might, indeed, be destined for more after all. When an up-and-coming rock star commissions Estella to design him a signature piece, she begins to feel as though she has truly arrived. But what is the cost of keeping up with the fast crowd- and is it a price Estella is willing to pay?

118 Min., Documentary

R: Dan Lindsay, T. J. Martin

D: Tina Turner

In the fall of 1981, Tina Turner sat for an interview with the music editor of People Magazine. Five years earlier, she had divorced Ike Turner, her husband and musical partner for 16 years, and almost no one knew why. The story she would tell was a harrowing account of the abuse and torture she had lived through and the literal escape she made one night after years of trauma. The article would be the first of many profiles that would cement Tina’s image as a heroine. Her personal narrative, along with her undeniable talent, would go on to fuel one of the most improbable comebacks in music history. As her fame grew, so did her identity as a cultural symbol. Tina projected strength and resilience to her millions of fans around the world and yet, concealed behind this public face, was a woman still struggling to be released from the past.

THE LAST SHIFT

USA, 2020

90 Min., Comedy, Drama

R: Andrew Cohn

D: Richard Jenkins, Holden Ochsenhirt, Da’Vine Joy Randolph

The Last Shift is an American story about two men struggling in the same town, while worlds apart. Stanley (Richard Jenkins), an aging fast-food worker, plans to call it quits after 38 years on the graveyard shift at Oscar's Chicken and Fish. His last weekend takes a turn while training his replacement, Jevon (Shane Paul McGhie), a talented but stalled young writer whose provocative politics keep landing him in trouble. These two who share little in common are brought together through circumstance. Stanley, a high school dropout who has watched life pass by his drive-through window, proudly details the nuances of the job. While Jevon, a columnist who's too smart to be flipping patties, contends their labor is being exploited. A flicker of comradery sparks during the long overnight hours in a quiet kitchen.
