A MOST WANTED MAN (R) 
 
-Baxter Avenue Theatres             
Based on the bestselling novel by John le Carré and directed by Anton Corbijn (The American), this modern-day thriller begins when a mysterious man on the run (Grigoriy Dobrygin) arrives in Hamburg, Germany's Islamic community desperate for help. Nothing about this young man seems to add up; is he a victim or a thief or, worse still, an extremist intent on destruction? Drawn into this web of intrigue are a banker (Willem Dafoe) and a young lawyer (Rachel McAdams) determined to defend the defenseless. All the while, they are being watched by the brilliant, roguish chief of a covert German spy unit (Philip Seymour Hoffman), who fights to put the pieces together as the clock ticks. In an adrenaline-laced and heart-rending escalation of tension and collision, it's not long before he becomes everyone's most wanted man. A cerebral tale of intrigue in the vein of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, A Most Wanted Man is also deeply human, touching themes in love, rivalry and politics we live with every day.

WISH I WAS HERE  (R) 
 
-Baxter Avenue Theatres
Filmmaker Zach Braff's follow-up to his indie breakout hit Garden State is a funny, touching, universal dramatic comedy about what it means to be at a major crossroads as a parent, spouse and child—all at once. Aidan Bloom (Braff) and his wife Sarah (Kate Hudson) live in Los Angeles with their two children, Grace (Joey King) and Tucker (Pierce Gagnon). Sarah supports the family with her public service job, while struggling actor Aidan auditions and escapes into fantasies about being the futuristic space knight of his childhood dreams. When Aidan’s ailing, widowed father Gabe (Mandy Patinkin, "Homeland") can no longer pay for his grandchildren’s schooling, Aidan eschews cultural traditions and embarks on a chaotic attempt to home-school his kids. Aidan’s curriculum for Grace and Tucker leads to some surprising self-discoveries for everyone, and causes him to reassess his life, his career and his family. Also starring Josh Gad.
