A Year in Champagne

USA | 2014 | 82 min

Ah, the essence of champagne: a cork explodes, tiny bubbles float in the glass, and then, indulgence. Follow renowned wine importer Martine Saunier on a rare glimpse behind the scenes to meet the producers of this world renowned beverage.

Mr. Turner

United Kingdom | 2014 | 149 min

Acclaimed director Mike Leigh presents Timothy Spall in a masterful performance as the British landscape painter J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851), whose wealth of eccentricities – from frequent visits to brothels, to strapping himself to the mast of a ship so that he can paint a snowstorm – makes him both celebrated and reviled by the public and by royalty.
