    Different Drummers

    Rated: PG.

    Different Drummers is a deeply inspirational family film - a true story from 1965 - about an unusual spiritual journey and unlikely friendship. David, wheelchair-bound by muscular dystrophy, is growing progressively weaker, while his friend, Lyle, has a problem with an increasingly high energy level. David informs Lyle that their teacher is about to die and claims that God told him this. When their teacher does die, a confused and doubtful Lyle convinces David that he can teach him to run, secretly viewing this as a way to test the existence of God. When Lyle begins to twist the rules in a desperate attempt to give his friend some of his own excess energy, they come face to face with life's most transcendent and painful truths - and Lyle's question is ultimately answered, in a way he never could have imagined.

  • Tusk

    Tusk

    Rated: R.

    An irreverent American podcaster interviews a Canadian adventurer whose wild tale of survival at sea masks sinister intentions in this twisted horror comedy from writer/director Kevin Smith (Clerks, Kevin Smith). Wallace (Justin Long) and Teddy (Haley Joel Osment) are the wisecracking co-hosts of "The Not-See Party", a popular podcast focused on bizarre viral videos and humorous interviews with the internet-famous. The concept is simple - Wallace travels the country conducting outlandish videos, and returns to their make-shift studio to share his stories with Teddy and the listeners. When Wallace ventures to Canada for an interview that falls through at the last minute, he stops at a local bar for a drink and finds a flyer posted by an old adventurer (Michael Parks) who seeks to share his stories with anyone who will listen. Arriving at the old man's secluded estate under the shroud of darkness, Wallace is promptly treated to a hot cup of tea, and a strange tale of being rescued by a walrus following a shipwreck at sea. It all seems like the perfect fodder for an unforgettable podcast -- that is until Wallace blacks out and regains consciousness bound to a wheelchair. Meanwhile, as Teddy and Wallace's girlfriend venture north to investigate his sudden disappearance, the old man subjects his terrified guest to a bizarre medical procedure that will transform more than just his perception of one of the sea's most majestic creatures. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
