Burlesque opens on November 24th.
Ali is a small-town girl with a big voice who escapes hardship and an uncertain future to follow her dreams to LA. After stumbling upon The Burlesque Lounge, a majestic but ailing theater that is home to an inspired musical revue, Ali lands a job as a cocktail waitress from Tess, the club’s proprietor and headliner. Burlesque’s outrageous costumes and bold choreography enrapture the young ingenue, who vows to perform there one day. Soon enough, Ali builds a friendship with a featured dancer, finds an enemy in a troubled, jealous performer and garners the affection of Jack, a bartender and fellow musician. With the help of a sharp-witted stage manager and gender-bending host, Ali makes her way from the bar to the stage. Her spectacular voice restores The Burlesque Lounge to its former glory, though not before a charismatic entrepreneur arrives with an enticing proposal.
Life as We Know It opens on December 22nd.
Holly Berenson is an up-and-coming caterer and Eric Messer is a promising network sports director. After a disastrous first date, the only thing they have in common is their dislike for each other and their love for their goddaughter, Sophie. But when they suddenly become all Sophie has in the world, Holly and Eric are forced to put their differences aside. Juggling career ambitions and competing social calendars, they’ll have to find some common ground while living under one roof.
From Prada to Nada is slated for release in 2011.
A Latina version of Jane Austen’s classic novel set in modern-day Los Angeles. Two sisters, one a young beauty who chooses passion over logic, the other a law student whose fixed moral compass keeps her from following her desires, are uprooted from their luxurious home when their father suddenly passes away. Out of money and out of options, the women move into their Great Aunt Aurelia’s modest, but lively home in the Latino-centric Boyle Heights neighborhood where they find themselves thrown into a world that, despite their heritage, seems completely foreign. Over time, they discover the beauty of the culture they once fought so desperately to hide. And in the process they find the one thing that had eluded them: love.
NoNAMES is an exquisite story of the strength that comes from lifelong friends, and how a close-knit community can both support and suffocate. Kevin (James Badge Dale from HBO’s The Pacific) is navigating the responsibilities of becoming grown man, something that hasn’t come easy to him after his mother died. He’s got his buddies, a scruffy pack of fellow ne’er-do-wells in this central Wisconsin town, who become a new kind of family after his dad and sister move away. Broadening into one of the finest ensemble casts in recent Wisconsin-based films, these guys are forced to confront the consequences of a violent act against Kevin’s girlfriend CJ which slowly builds into a conflagration.
