By the Grace of God

“By the Grace of God” tells the story of three adult men — Alexandre (Melvil Poupaud), François (Denis Ménochet), and Emmanuel (Swann Arlaud) — who band together to expose the code of silence that continues to enable a priest who abused them as boys. Their experiences powerfully illustrate the varying effects that the trauma of abuse causes on individuals and their families for years. The true story upon which the film is based is an ongoing scandal in France, with Philippe Barbarin, Cardinal of Lyon, convicted in March 2019 for concealing the conduct of Father Preynat. Winner of the Silver Berlin Bear Award at the 2019 Berlin International Film Festival.

Eva

As a 10-year-old “Mengele Twin,” Eva Kor survived the experiments of the Nazis’ “Angel of Death.” At 50, she launched the biggest manhunt in history. At 84, she urgently circled the globe to promote the controversial lesson her jaw-dropping journey has taught: healing through forgiveness. Narrated by Hollywood icon Ed Asner and featuring spectacular new footage shot around the world, “Eva” tells the full, unvarnished story of this historic figure for the first time, bolstered by interviews with Holocaust experts, celebrities she’s moved (Elliott Gould, Wolf Blitzer), fellow survivors she’s enraged, and myriad young people whose lives she’s changed — and in many cases saved. Above all this diminutive woman stands as a triumph of the human spirit and an irrepressible voice for the voiceless — “she represents the best in humanity,” Blitzer says — and “Eva” will be her legacy piece.

Gods and Monsters

Once a powerful Hollywood director best known for “Frankenstein” and “The Bride of Frankenstein,” James Whale (Ian McKellen) is long since retired and in increasingly poor health. His stalwart housekeeper, Hanna (Lynn Redgrave), quietly disapproves of Whale’s faceless, nameless parade of young gay lovers, but when the director takes an interest in new gardener Clayton Boone (Brendan Fraser), a former Marine and Korean War veteran, it seems to be for something more than his usual casual conquest. This partially fictionalized account of Whale’s last days is based on Christopher Bram’s novel “Father of Frankenstein” and won an Academy Award® for Best Adapted Screenplay.
