Forced upon the team, Trautmann soon surprises on and off the field. Prejudice subsides, friendships start to develop and Trautmann loses his heart not only to football, but also to his manager’s daughter, Margaret (Freya Mavor, The Lady in the Car with Glasses and a Gun). Trautmann is overjoyed when he gets signed by Manchester City FC, but thousands take to the streets against the engagement of the ‘Nazi’. However, Trautmann does not give up and, finally, his path to acceptance begins. It peaks at the 1956 FA Cup Final when he secures victory for his team by playing on, despite a broken neck."

A sit-in by patrons at a public library escalates into a police standoff in this David versus Goliath, feel-good drama from and starring Emilio Estevez. Co-stars Alec Baldwin, Christian Slater and Jena Malone.
"It begins quietly enough in a Cincinnati library on a winter's day. Stuart (Estevez) and Myra (Malone) do their best to manage the daily assortment of knowledge seekers, loiterers, and homeless people who frequent their branch. It's freezing outside. As closing time draws near, Jackson (The Wire's Michael K. Williams) sparks an act of civil disobedience among his fellow library patrons who have nowhere to sleep. They refuse to leave, defying first the entreaties of the library staff, then a local political operative (Slater), and soon a team of riot police led by Detective Ramstead (Baldwin), a hard-charging crisis negotiator. Outside, a TV reporter (Gabrielle Union) juices up the story for the wider world." (Toronto International Film Festival)

Drama illustrating the power of music, when a Pakistani teen living in grim Thatcher-era England discovers the working-class anthems of Bruce Springsteen. From the writer/director of Bend It Like Beckham.
"1987, Margaret Thatcher’s England. Javed, a 16-year-old British Pakistani boy, lives in the town of Luton. His father’s recent job termination and the neighborhood skinheads are a daily reminder of the difficult times he’s living in. What young Javed really wants is to be a writer—something his father doesn’t approve of or understand—and when a new friend loans him a few Bruce Springsteen cassettes, Javed is changed forever. The Boss’s working-class anthems and affirming lyrics seem to speak directly to Javed, emboldening him to find his own voice as a writer, stand up to the racism around him, and challenge his father’s rigid ideals."

The filmmaker behind art comedies Computer Chess and Results follows the tight-knit staff at boob-oriented bar/restaurant Double Whammies in this comedic drama that won critical praise, including a spot on Barack Obama's best of 2018 list.
"Lisa (Regina Hall) is the general manager at Double Whammies, a dodgy sports bar where the waitresses must dress in revealing clothing, and deal with the leering clientele. Despite the circumstances, Lisa loves her staff and the customers and has an infectious optimism. She is also fiercely protective of her employees, helping them deal with absent babysitters, money problems and abusive boyfriends. The film takes in one particularly awful day that cruelly tests Lisa’s optimism." (Sydney Film Festival)
