Hello, My Name Is Doris
Bill – Dir. Richard Bracewell
What really happened during Shakespeare’s ‘Lost Years’? What if it involved a hopeless lute player, Bill Shakespeare, leaving home to follow his dream?
The Invitation – Dir. Karyn Kusama (Girlfight, Jennifer’s Body)
In this taut psychological thriller, Will (Logan Marshall-Green, Prometheus) shows up to a dinner party hosted by his ex-wife Eden (Tammy Blanchard, Into the Woods) and her new husband David (Michiel Huisman, “Game of Thrones”). The estranged divorcees’ tragic past haunts an equally eerie present. Given Eden’s suspicious behavior and her mysterious houseguests, Will becomes convinced that his invitation was extended with a hidden agenda. Unfolding over one dark evening in the Hollywood Hills, The Invitation blurs layers of mounting paranoia, mystery, and horror until Will is unsure what threats are real or imagined.
Celebrate the 400th Anniversary of Shakespeare’s passing with BBC adaptations of A Midsummer Night’s Dream (1971) and The Taming of the Shrew (2005), plus a fascinating documentary about Shakespeare’s role in shaping Western culture, Shakespeare and Us.
