Spanking the Monkey

Director: David O. Russell

Cast Summary:

Jeremy Davies, Benjamin Hendrickson, Alberta Watson, Carla Gallo

One of America's most acclaimed contemporary screenwriters and directors, David O. Russell made his feature film debut in 1994 with the black comedy Spanking The Monkey, which won The Audience Award at the Sundance Film Festival and caused a stir with its incestuous subplot and portrayal of adolescent restlessness. The film also displays much of what has become Russell's trademark idiosyncratic, offbeat humour, later seen in Flirting With Disaster, the iconoclastic Three Kings and the existential comedy I Heart Huckabees, marking him as a special director with cult appeal.

Student Services

Director: Emmanuelle Bercot

Cast Summary:

Déborah François, Alain Cauchi, Mathiew Demy, Benjamin Siksou

From uncompromising writer-director Emmanuelle Bercot (Clement), and starring the stunning Deborah Francois (Populaire, The Page Turner), STUDENT SERVICES, based on the notorious memoir of a former student prostitute, is as compelling as it is shocking.


Director: Anna Boden, Ryan Fleck

Cast Summary:

Algenis Perez Soto, Rayniel Rufino, Andre Holland, Michael Gaston
