The Wall

The Wall

 

Inside everyone lies a truth only the wilderness can reveal. In The Wall, the unnamed lead character (Martina Gedeck) is exploring the beautiful Austrian mountain landscape when she suddenly finds herself cut off from civilization by an impossibly high and unreasonably strong invisible wall. Based upon Marlen Haushofer’s acclaimed feminist novel, the film explores the despair of isolation and the ultimate triumph of the human spirit.

The Wall

 

Surrounded by a gorgeous environment that most people want to escape to, she can only think of escaping from it. She finds that virtual imprisonment reverses priorities in an instant. Together with her faithful dog Lynx, she begins to explore her surroundings and come to terms with her new world. It is a difficult task indeed, to accept being cut off from all human contact. Forced to look inward, she begins a journey of spiritual awakening and transcendence. In a world untouched by civilization’s controlling hand, she realizes that the only way out is to venture deeper in.

Now You See Me

Now You See Me

 

“The more you think you see, the easier it will be to fool you.” In Now You See Me, a team of magicians calling themselves “The Four Horsemen” (Jesse Eisenberg, Woddy Harrelson, Isla Fisher, and Dave Franco) have begun staging a series of breathtaking shows that culminate in heists against corrupt business leaders—right before the audience’s eyes! After the quartet robs a bank on another continent and showers the audience with the stolen riches of a white-collar criminal (Elias Koteas), their antics catch the attention of an elite FBI team led by Dylan Hobbs (Mark Ruffalo). A dazzling cat-and-mouse chase ensues, and the Four Horseman must use all of their cunning if they hope to stay ahead of the law—and pull off their next heist!

However, Hobbs’ manhunt soon hits a snag. Since the Four Horsemen’s stunts span opposite sides of the globe, Hobbs is forced to team up with Interpol agent Alma Vargas (Melanie Laurent), and he’s instantly suspicious. Unable to figure out the Horsemen’s techniques, Hobbs and Vargas enlist the aid of Thaddeus Bradley (Morgan Freeman), a famed magic debunker, to help uncover the illusions. It soon becomes clear that the Horsemen must have a point man on the scene to help orchestrate their crimes. Could it be Vargas? Or Thaddeus? As the clock winds down, Hobbs’s team races to find an answer before the Horseman can pull off their greatest heist yet.
