    KINDS OF KINDNESS is the darkly comic and unpredictable new film by the director of The Favourite and Poor Things. A triptych fable, following a man without choice who tries to take control of his own life; a policeman who is alarmed that his wife who was missing-at-sea has returned and seems a different person; and a woman determined to find a specific someone with a special ability, who is destined to become a prodigious spiritual leader. A work of audacious originality and vicious humor, this macabre, mischievous film is mind-bendingly brilliant and at no point can you pretend to anticipate what will happen next. Starring Emma Stone, who won the Best Actress Oscar for Poor Things, Willem Dafoe, Margaret Qualley, Jesse Plemons and Hong Chau.

GREEN BORDER

    In the treacherous and swampy forests that make up the so-called “green border” between Belarus and Poland, refugees from the Middle East and Africa are lured by government propaganda promising easy passage to the European Union. Unable to cross into Europe and unable to turn back, they find themselves trapped in a rapidly escalating geopolitical stand-off. An unflinching depiction of the migrant crisis captured in stark black-and-white, this riveting film explores the intractable issue from multiple perspectives: a Syrian family fleeing ISIS caught between cruel border guards in both countries; young guards instructed to brutalize and reject the migrants; and activists who aid the refugees at great personal risk.

    Three-time Oscar nominee Agnieszka Holland brings a masterful eye for realism and deep compassion to this blistering critique of a humanitarian calamity that continues to unfold. GREEN BORDER is a poignant and essential work of cinema that opens our eyes and speaks to the heart, challenging viewers to reflect on the moral choices that fall to ordinary people every day. A courageous, profoundly moving and flawlessly executed film that promises to be one of the best of the year.
