Louder Than Bombs
An upcoming exhibition celebrating photographer Isabelle Reed(Isabelle Huppert) three years after her untimely death brings her eldest son Jonah (Jesse Eisenberg) back to the family house - forcing him to spend more time with his father Gene (Gabriel Byrne) and withdrawn younger brother Conrad (Devin Druid) than he has in years. With the three of them under the same roof, Gene tries desperately to connect with his two sons, but they struggle to reconcile their feelings about the woman they remember so differently.
"There isn't a single scene that falls flat or feels false." - TheWrap.

"Louder Than Bombs is an artful and intensely literary (hello, internal monologues) melodrama that sits somewhere between The Squid and the Whale and Ordinary People." - Times UK.

City of Gold
In this richly penetrating documentary odyssey, Pulitzer Prize-winning food critic Jonathan Gold shows us a Los Angeles where ethnic cooking is a kaleidoscopic portal to the mysteries of an unwieldy city and the soul of America. Combing through colorful neighborhoods in his green pickup truck, Gold is sniffing out his next strip-mall discovery-whether Oaxacan grasshopper soup, hand-cut tonkotsu ramen, or a particularly unctuous pad see ew. As piping-hot platters are served up, so are stories of immigrants whose secret family recipes are like sacred offerings pledged for the opportunity to build their American Dream. With eternal curiosity, razor-sharp intellect, and existential longing, Gold is a culinary geographer taking us where no critic has gone before.
"Why make a film about this lucky guy? Gold is a philosopher and cultural critic as much as a gourmet." - Minneapolis Star Tribune.
"A tasty primer on the man, the eater, the critic and the city." - Chicago Tribune.
"A flavorsome documentary appreciation of the first Pulitzer-awarded food critic's culturally adventuresome palate." - Variety.
