An unflinching look at conjugal rift … could seriously resonate with middle-aged moviegoers — especially women — starved for smart, personal stories.” –Variety

To most of the world, Howard Wakefield (Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston), a New York City lawyer, disappears one day, without a trace. But he is in hiding, in the attic of his home, spying on his lovely, devoted wife (Jennifer Garner) and ruminating on the meaning of life. Oscar-nominated screenwriter Robin Swicord adapts E.L. Doctorow’s short story into a tour-de-force exploration of suburban malaise and male ineptitude, anchored by a legendary performance by Cranston. (U.S., 2016, XXm)

New Mexico History Museum presents Radical Southwest: Long Strange Trip at The Lensic

longwaytrip550"The first two hours is a great rock doc. The next two are the most exuberant and heartbreaking profile of fame I've ever seen.” –Jordan Hoffman, Vanity Fair

Martin Scorsese presents this story of the Grateful Dead, the ultimate counterculture band, who emerged from the San Francisco scene with a blend of bluegrass, folk and improvisation. In an age of drug-fueled experimentation, the band cultivated a fan base willing to travel to new realms of experience. Director Amir Bar-Lev (MY KID COULD PAINT THAT) draws from an unbelievable treasure trove of largely unseen materials, including an interview with Jerry Garcia, to create a tapestry of the era’s most unlikely rock heroes. (U.S., 2017, 235m)
