With a new iPhone, an apartment near the Grove, and a comfortable bank account left to her by her beloved late husband, Marnie Minervini (Susan Sarandon) has happily relocated from New Jersey to Los Angeles to be near her daughter Lori (Rose Byrne), a successful (but still single) screenwriter, and smother her with motherly love. But when the dozens of texts, unexpected visits, and conversations dominated by unsolicited advice force Lori to draw strict personal boundaries, Marnie finds ways to channel her eternal optimism and forceful generosity to change the lives of others – as well as her own – and find a new purpose in life. Rated PG-13 for brief drug content. 100 Minutes.

In a secluded valley in Iceland, sheep farming brothers Gummi and Kiddi live side by side, but have not spoken to each other in four decades. Their ancestral sheep-stock is considered one of the country’s best. When a lethal disease suddenly infects Kiddi’s sheep, the authorities decide to cull all the animals in the area to contain the outbreak. This is a near death sentence for the farmers and many abandon their land. Gummi and Kiddi try to stave off the disaster in his own fashion: Kiddi with his rifle and Gummi with his wits. As the authorities close in, the brothers will need to come together to save their special breed and livelihood. In Icelandic with subtitles. Rated R for language and brief graphic nudity. 93 minutes.
