The Salvation

Description: Estranged from his family, Jonathan (Garrett Hedlund) discovers his father has decided to take himself off life support in 48 hours' time. During this intensely condensed period, a lifetime of drama plays out. Robert (Richard Jenkins) fights a zero sum game to reclaim all that his illness stole from his family. A debate rages on patients, rights and what it truly means to be free. Jonathan reconciles with his father, reconnects with his mother (Anne Archer), sister (Jessica Brown-Findlay), and his love (Amy Adams) and reclaims his voice through two unlikely catalysts, a young, wise-beyond-her-years patient (Barden) and a no-nonsense nurse (Jennifer Hudson). Through this intensely life affirming prism, an unexpected and powerful journey of love, laughter, and forgiveness unfolds.

Half of a Yellow Sun
Description: Olanna (Thandie Newton) and Kainene (Anika Noni Rose) are glamorous twins from a wealthy Nigerian family. Upon returning to a privileged city life in newly independent 1960s Nigeria after their expensive English education, the two women make very different choices. Olanna shocks her family by going to live with her lover, the "revolutionary professor" Odenigbo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and his devoted houseboy Ugwu (John Boyega) in the dusty university town of Nsukka; Kainene turns out to be a fiercely successful businesswoman when she takes over the family interests, and surprises even herself when she falls in love with Richard (Joseph Mawle), an English writer. Preoccupied by their romantic entanglements,and a betrayal between the sisters, the events of their lives seem to loom larger than politics.
Director: Biyi Bandele
Starring: Chiwetel Ejiofor, Thandie Newton, Anika Noni Rose, John Boyega, Joseph Mawle, Hakeem Kae-Kazim, O.C. Ukeje, Rob David
Comment: Chiwetel Ejiofor has put himself on the map since "12 Years a Slave", so I'm excited to see him in this drama as well.
