"An affecting drama. Deeply compelling....[Binoche's] transformation is as unsettling as the violence she's chronicling."
– John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter
"[A] gripping, emotionally resonant drama...starring French luminary Juliette Binoche."
– Ronnie Scheib, Variety
"Elegant and aesthetically pleasing! Binoche is particularly terrific."
– Jessica Kiang, The Playlist

Synopsis

Rebecca (Juliette Binoche) is one of the world's top war photojournalists, capturing dangerous and chilling images in the most dire landscapes, all in an effort to shed light on the real cost of modern war. But she's also a wife and mother, leaving behind a husband and two young daughters every time she travels to a new combat zone. After a near-death experience chronicling the ritual of a female suicide bomber, husband Marcus (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) levels an ultimatum: give up the dangerous profession or lose the family she counts on being there when she returns from each assignment. Yet the conviction that her photos can make a difference keeps pulling at Rebecca's resolve, making it difficult for her to walk away entirely. With an offer to photograph a refugee camp in Kenya, a place allegedly so safe that daughter Steph (Lauryn Canny) is allowed to join her, Rebecca comes face to face with just how much she risks each time she steps back into the fray.

ROOM 514
Directed by Sharon Bar-Ziv
Anna, an investigator in the Israeli military, is ordered to interrogate a senior officer who is alleged to have abused an Arab family. Her questioning is greeted with sarcasm by the accused commander, while her colleagues, including her lover, advise her to stop the case - it is too political, too complex and too notorious. Instead, she fastens her teeth into it, eschewing the approval of her male superiors in favor of morality and justice for the victims. Unfortunately, her idealism against the perceived abuse of power might have far-reaching consequences for everyone involved.

ARCADIA
Directed by Olivia Silver
A coming-of-age story set in a vast, cross-country landscape, Arcadia begins when twelve-year-old Greta's dad Tom (Academy Award nominated actor John Hawkes) wakes her up before dawn and crams her and her two siblings into a dented station wagon. They set off on a 3,000 mile journey from the New England woods to the California desert. On the way, Tom tells enchanting stories, paints pictures of a California paradise, and assures the kids that Mom will soon join them. Greta believes him at first, mesmerized by the strange new scenery and clinging to her stuffed bunny Harrison. Older sister Caroline nonchalantly accepts his stories, more focused on the boyfriend she's leaving behind. And nine-year-old Nat, too young to suspect a thing, is eager to see the epic Grand Canyon. But Tom's mood shifts as often as the landscape outside their window, and the kids soon find themselves in increasingly unpleasant and even dangerous situations. Mom's presence seems to recede further with every mile they travel.
