ST. VINCENT   (PG13) 
 
-Baxter Avenue Theatres             
The singular Bill Murray stars in the comical story of a young boy who develops an unusual friendship with the cantankerous old guy next door. Maggie (Melissa McCarthy), a single mother, moves into a new home in Brooklyn with her 12-year-old son, Oliver (Jaeden Lieberher). Forced to work long hours, she has no choice but to leave Oliver in the care of their new neighbor, Vincent (Murray), a retired curmudgeon with a penchant for alcohol and gambling. An odd friendship soon blossoms between the improbable pair. Together with a pregnant stripper named Daka (Naomi Watts), Vincent brings Oliver along on all the stops that make up his daily routine—the race track, a strip club and the local dive bar. Vincent helps Oliver grow to become a man, while Oliver begins to see in Vincent something that no one else is able to: a misunderstood man with a good heart. Written and directed by Theodore Melfi.

DEAR WHITE PEOPLE  (R)  
-Baxter Avenue Theatres

Dear White People is a sly, provocative satire of race relations in the age of Obama. Tction of activist Samantha White (Tessa Thompson) as head of a traditionally black residence hall sets up a college campus culture war that challenges conventional notions of what it means to be black. While Sam leverages her notoriety as host of the provocative and polarizing radio show "Dear White People" to try to prevent the college from diversifying Armstrong Parker House, outgoing head-of-houhe film follows four black students at Winchester University, where the unexpected elese Troy (Brandon P. Bell) defies his father's lofty expectations by applying to join the staff of Pastiche, the college's influential humor magazine. Lionel (Tyler James Williams), an Afro-sporting sci-fi geek, is recruited by the otherwise all-white student newspaper to go undercover and write about black culture—a subject he knows little about—while the aggressively assimilated Coco (Teyonah Parris) tries to use the controversy on campus to carve out a career in reality TV. With tongue planted firmly in cheek, Dear White People explores racial identity in "post-racial" America while weaving a universal story of forging one's unique path in the world. Winner of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival's Special Jury Award for Breakthrough Talent.

-Village 8 Theatres

LOUISVILLE EXCLUSIVE/NEW RELEASE
Screenwriter Hossein Amini (Drive, The Wings of the Dove) makes a stylish directing debut with this sleek thriller set in Greece and Istanbul in 1962. Intrigue begins at the Parthenon when a glamorous, wealthy American couple—the charismatic Chester MacFarland (Viggo Mortensen) and his alluring young wife Collete (Kirsten Dunst)—meet Rydal (Oscar Isaac, Inside Llewyn Davis), a Greek-speaking American who is working as a tour guide, scamming female tourists on the side. Instead of becoming his latest marks, the two befriend him, but a murder at the couple's hotel puts all three on the run together and creates a precarious bond between them as the trio's allegiance is put to the test. Their journey takes them from Greece to Turkey, and to a dramatic finale played out in the back alleys of Istanbul's Grand Bazaar. Adapted from the novel of the same name by Patricia Highsmith (The Talented Mr. Ripley, Strangers on a Train).
