Imagine the end of the world. Now imagine something worse. Centering on a teenaged boy (Kelvin Harrison, Jr.) as he grapples with mounting terrors—external and otherwise—in the aftermath of an unnamed cataclysm.

Secure within a desolate home with his vigilant, protective and heavily armed parents (Joel Edgerton and Carmen Ejogo), 17-year-old Travis navigates fear, grief and paranoia amid scarce resources as a desperate young couple (Christopher Abbott and Riley Keough) seeks refuge in his family home with their young child.

Despite the best intentions of both families, panic and mistrust boil over as the horrors of the outside world creep ever closer. But they are nothing compared to the horrors within, where Travis discovers that his father’s commitment to protecting the family may cost him his soul.

Buster’s Mal Heart (2016)?

Title: Buster’s Mal Heart
Rating: NR
Directed by: Sarah Adina Smith

Starring: Rami Malek, DJ Qualls, and Kate Lyn Sheil
Release Date: 4/28/2017

What did you think of this film?
In this bold thriller peppered with dark humor and interlocking mystery, an eccentric mountain man is on the run from the authorities, surviving the winter by breaking into empty vacation homes in a remote community. Regularly calling into radio talk shows — where he has acquired the nickname “Buster” — to rant about the impending Inversion at the turn of the millennium, he is haunted by visions of being lost at sea, and memories of his former life as a family man.

Buster (Rami Malek) was once Jonah, a hard-working husband and father whose job as the night-shift concierge at a hotel took its toll on his psyche and, consequently, his marriage to the sensitive Marty (Kate Lyn Sheil) — until a chance encounter with a conspiracy-obsessed drifter (DJ Qualls) changed the course of their lives forever. As the solitary present-day Buster drifts from house to house, eluding the local sheriff at every turn, we gradually piece together the events that fractured his life and left him alone on top of a snowy mountain, or perhaps in a small rowboat in the middle of a vast ocean — or both, in this visceral mind bender that will provoke discussion long after it turns your world upside-down.

What did you think of this film?
An epic thriller set in the old west. A triumphant tale of powerful womanhood and resistance against a violent past that refuses to fade.

Liz (Dakota Fanning) is a mute young woman who lives together with her husband and two children. She is a midwife and communicates through sign language, sometimes assisted by her daughter. Her relationship with her 14 year old son could be better, but otherwise Liz’s life seems pretty good.

When the new reverend (Guy Pearce) climbs the pulpit in church, Liz freezes. She immediately knows she and her family are in danger.

In four chapters we see not only how the reverend tries to take everything Liz loves away from her, but also how her life has unfolded in the past.
