After an ill-fated audition at a prestigious New York music conservatory, violinist Finley Sinclair (Rose Reid) travels to an Irish coastal village to begin her semester studying abroad. At the B&B run by her host family she encounters the gregarious and persistent heartthrob movie star Beckett Rush (Jedidiah Goodacre), who is there to film another installment of his medieval fantasy-adventure franchise. As romance sparks between the unlikely pair, Beckett ignites a journey of discovery for Finley that transforms her heart, her music, and her outlook on life.

We recently sat down, as a family, to watch Lena & Snowball. It was so adorable, and we couldn’t resist watching it a second time. Lena and her friend, Snowball, were an unlikely pair, but worked together so great. My 9 year old has watched it several times. And, my 23 year old watches it with him, almost every time.
Bullied at school and lonely at home, Lena keeps hoping she’ll have a true friend someday. One afternoon, her dreams come true – in the shape of a cuddly white lion cub! Lena tries to keep playful Snowball out of trouble, but the clumsy poachers who kidnapped the valuable cub, and the cruel trophy collector who paid for him, are desperate to get him back. As Lena races to rescue poor Snowball, her new friend Jake will do anything to help. Be careful, or Snowball will melt your family’s heart!
He did melt ours.
Parts played by Melissa Collazo, Wade Williams, Bransombe Richmond, and Robert Knepper.
Run Time: 90 minutes.
This film was just released on January 12, so get out and get your copy today. You’ll love watching it!

Lionsgate Joins Actiview & Nyle DiMarco to Make Its Critically Acclaimed Film WONDER the First Live Action US Film to Have American Sign Language Interpretation
SANTA MONICA, CA (February 12, 2019) – Lionsgate has teamed up with Actiview, a mobile application company that provides film accessibility solutions for blind, deaf, and foreign language speaking audiences, and Celebrity Deaf Advocate Nyle DiMarco to make the worldwide box office hitWONDER the first live action US film to have an American Sign Language interpretation available for viewing along with the film.
The Actiview app is designed as a “second-screen” experience, either through headphones or on the user’s phone screen, that allows users to playback audio descriptions, captions, multi-language dubs, and even sign language interpretations of films and shows while they watch on a TV, laptop, or in a theater.
“Lionsgate is committed to making our movies increasingly available and accessible,” said Brian Day, Lionsgate Senior Vice President of Strategic Partnerships. “We’re delighted to be working with Nyle and Actiview to make our incredibly moving and heartfelt movie WONDER the first live action film to ever have American Sign Language available alongside it.”
After winning America’s Next Top Model in 2015 and then becoming a champion on Dancing with the Stars, actor and model Nyle DiMarco has become a major advocate for the deaf community. His goal in teaming up with Actiview and Lionsgate is to ensure that everyone has equal access to entertainment.
“I am so excited about working with Lionsgate and Actiview to make the inspiring film WONDER accessible to everyone and offer them an ASL viewing option,” said DiMarco. “It allows me to take a huge step forward in my campaign to make increasing accessibility a priority in the TV and film industry.”
Lionsgate is also making the entire Hunger Games series (4 films) accessible via the Actiview app, providing Audio Description, Multi-language Dubs, Subtitles, Captions, and Amplified Audio to all audiences who use the Actiview app.
How it works:
Users can watch Wonder (and The Hunger Games) on any available platform and the app will automatically synchronize with their TV. The app “listens” to the movie (similarly to Shazam listening to songs) and figures out where in the movie the viewer is, matching the playback from their device.
Any user will be able to download the app (iOS only) at http://activiewapp.com/download or by searching “Actiview” in the App Store. They then select the movie they’re watching and the accessibility service they need (Sign Language, Audio Description, etc.).
Wonder follows the inspiring story of the Pullman family, whose youngest child, Auggie, is a boy born with facial differences. When Auggie enters mainstream elementary school for the first time, his extraordinary journey unites his family, his school, and his community, and proves that you can’t blend in when you were born to stand out.
Wonder is available now on 4K Ultra HD™, Blu-ray™, DVD, and Digital.

On a rainy night in Calcutta a group of desperate addicts chase brown sugar, but the permanent intoxication they seek proves elusive. Cat Sticks weaves their stories into a chiaroscuro, traverses with them through states high and low, spaces real and unreal. A relentless downpour plays backdrop to lives balanced on a precarious high. Some of them seek a release, while others do not seem to want the night to end.
Ronny Sen brings the bold style of his fine art photography to this story about an underground community of junkies who scrounge a living on the streets of Kolkata. Stunning compositions capture his characters emerging from and disappearing into inky blackness, intermittently drenched in rain. At the core of Sen’s feature debut are the human connections between these forgotten souls—the director has clearly immersed himself in this world, and captures its textures, language and mannerisms with great sensitivity and style. He masterfully weaves sequences of pure cinema, rendered with modern-dance informed movement, into his raw and gritty narrative. ‘Cat Sticks’ is one of the most gorgeous and affecting films Slamdance has presented in recent memory.
