In the wake of a shocking act of terror from within their own organization, the crew of The Enterprise is called back home to Earth.

And at The Flicks…
Renoir - Samuel Goldwyn Films - Rated R
Renoir is set on the French Riviera in the summer of 1915, and tells the story of the celebrated Impressionist painter in declining health at age 74, and his middle son Jean, who returns home after being wounded in World War I. The elder Renoir is filled with a new energy when a young girl enters his world. Blazing with life, and radiantly beautiful, she will become his last model, and the wellspring of a remarkable rejuvenation. At the same time, Jean also falls under the girl's spell. Both father and son become smitten with the enchanting and headstrong young muse. It's in French with English subtitles, and is rated R.

An American journalist interviews a man who, in 2000, was a promising Harvard educated business man with a quirky girlfriend living in New York. He loved America, but was treated like an outsider after the Twin Towers fell. Kiefer Sutherland, Liev Schreiber Kate Hudson, and Riz Ahmed star.
