The Better Angels

At an isolated log cabin in the harsh wilderness of Indiana circa 1817, the rhythms of love, tragedy, and the daily hardships of life on the developing frontier shaped one of our nation's greatest heroes: Abraham Lincoln. Using glorious black and white cinematogra- phy to conjure an America where the land was raw, The Better Angels sheds new light on the formative years of the future president and the two women who molded him into one of the most revered men in American history. Based on 19th-century interviews with Lincoln's family members, the film is a beautiful, insightful, and brilliantly composed feature debut from producer Terrence Malick's longtime protégé

A Tale of Winter

A young couple, Félicie and Charles, meet while on holiday and fall deeply in love. In a fatal slip, she gives him the wrong address, and, as a result, he disappears from her life. Five years later, at Christmas time, Félicie is a hairdresser in the Paris suburbs with a daughter and two lovers: the successful Max and the intellectual Loïc. She loves them both, but as she says, "There's love and love," and the love that counts is the one she still holds for the long-lost Charles. The plot centers on Félicie's shifting allegiances to the three men in her life, with an abortive move to another city, a strange experience in the cathedral at Nevers, and a performance of Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale among the stations on a roundabout journey that finally brings her face to face with the most basic issues of destiny and faith.

Awake- The Life of Yogananda

Awake is an unconventional biography about an Indian Swami who brought yoga and meditation to the West in the 1920s. Paramahansa Yogananda authored the spiritual classic Autobiography of a Yogi, which is a go-to-book for seekers, philosophers and yoga enthusiasts today. It was the only book that Steve Jobs had on his iPad and was also a point of entry into Eastern mysticism for George Harrison, Russell Simmons, and countless yogis. By personalizing his own quest for enlightenment and sharing his struggles along the path, Yogananda made ancient teachings accesible to a modern audience. Awake is ultimately the story of mankind itself: the universal struggle of all beings to free themselves from suffering and to seek lasting happiness.
