The Art of the Steal

Now Playing Synopsis: An art thief-turned-motorcycle daredevil pulls his old crew back together for one last heist in this caper film from writer/director Jonathan Sobol (A Beginner's Guide to Endings). Crunch Calhoun (Kurt Russell) has a reputation for big stunts, and hard landings. Now that years of motorbike mishaps have taken their toll on the aging Crunch, he is tempted back into a life of crime in order to make a buck. Unfortunately, Crunch isn't the best when it comes to choosing his criminal cohorts, and he winds up in prison after being double-crossed by his scheming half-brother Nicky (Matt Dillon). His retirement fund depleted by the time he's released, Crunch sets his sights on one last score that will set him up for life. The mission: Assemble a team, steal the Guttenberg Bible, replace it with a counterfeit, and collect a cool $20 million. With his apprentice Francie (Jay Baruchel), the well-connected Paddy Kenneth Walsh, expert forger Guy (Chris Diamantopoulos), and idea man Nicky by his side, Crunch begins preparations for the job he'll be remembered for. The heist hits the skids, however, when untrustworthy Nicky resorts to his old tricks. But this time Crunch is ready, and as their partnership dissolves he prepares to pull out his ace in the hole. Terence Stamp and Katheryn Winnick co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Kurt Russell, Matt Dillon, Terence Stamp, Jay Baruchel Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review

Unfinished Song

Opens Friday, Feb 8, 2013 Synopsis: A cantankerous retiree discovers an untapped gift while wrestling with the impending death of his beloved wife in this inspirational musical drama from director Paul Andrew Williams. Arthur (Terence Stamp) has shared a fruitful and enduring marriage with his wife Marion (Vanessa Redgrave) when he receives the devastating news that their days together are numbered. But while Marion's condition might be terminal, she chooses to take the diagnosis in stride, doing her best to cherish what remaining time she has with her husband. Meanwhile, Arthur's already dour attitude grows increasingly grim with each passing day. When the senior's choir that Marion sings in shows up at their window one stormy morning to serenade them with Stevie Wonder's "You Are the Sunshine of My Life," Arthur completely loses his cool and snaps at the well-intentioned crooners. His outlook worsens right alongside Marion's health, but when she asks him to be her substitute in the choir, he agrees in an attempt to make her smile. Little does Arthur realize that choir director Elizabeth (Gemma Arterton) favors teaching the group such nontraditional tunes as Motörhead's "Ace of Spades" rather than the tired glee-club standards. In time, something remarkable happens -- Arthur finds his voice and remembers how it feels to truly be alive in the moment. Christopher Eccleston co-stars. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Terence Stamp, Vanessa Redgrave, Christopher Eccleston, Gemma Arterton Movie Details Buy Tickets Movie Review
