On The Reel
Rated R, running time 100 minutes. Starts Friday, Oct. 30 at Sierra Cinemas. Chef Adam Jones had it all — and lost it. A two-star Michelin rockstar with the bad habits to match,
the former enfant terrible of the Paris restaurant scene did everything different every time out, and only ever cared about the thrill of creating explosions of taste. To land his own kitchen and that third elusive Michelin star though, he’ll need the best of the best on his side, including the beautiful Helene. This remarkably funny and emotional story is about the love of food, the love between two people, and the power of second chances.

Best of Enemies
Rated R, running time 87 minutes. Shows Sun, Nov. 1 at 7 p.m. at The Nevada Theatre.
In the summer of 1968, television news changed forever. Dead last in the ratings, ABC hired two towering public intellectuals to debate each other during the Democratic and Republican national conventions. William F. Buckley, Jr. was a leading light of the new conservative movement. A Democrat and cousin to Jackie Onassis, Gore Vidal was a leftist novelist and polemicist. Armed with deep-seated distrust and enmity, Vidal and Buckley believed each other’s political ideologies were dangerous for America. With explosive exchanges, they pummeled out policy with personal insults and vicious threats-cementing their opposing political positions. It was unlike anything TV had ever broadcast, and all the more shocking because it was live and unscripted. “There could scarcely be any documentary more enticing, scintillating and downright fascinating than Best of Enemies.” –Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter
