Academy Award Nominee: Best Animated Feature
Magical, unique, wordless, and utterly eye-popping, this hand-made animated tale follows a young Brazilian boy as he ventures from his simple countryside home into a carnivalesque metropolis. Overflowing with delightful visuals and exploding with vibrant color and samba/hip hop rhythms, the boy’s journey depicts the differences between village and city, punctuated by the heart and soul of the people.

Deadpool

Hilarious, profane, and self-aware, Deadpool is Marvel Comics’ most unconventional superhero film. Ryan Reynolds stars as a mercenary who enlists in a rogue experiment to beat his cancer, which of course goes horribly wrong, leaving him hideously deformed and nigh-invulnerable. Now he’s on a quest for revenge that is a violently subversive antidote to the usual “men in tights” formula.
