On the Reel
Rated PG-13, running time 96 minutes. Starts Friday, Sept. 9 at Del Oro Theatre. Tom Hanks stars in this thrilling portrait of heroic airline pilot Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, re-enacting his incredible successful emergency landing of an Airbus A320 full of passengers on the Hudson River.
The Wild Life
Rated PG, running time 91 minutes. Starts Friday, Sept. 9 at Sierra Cinemas. From the over-exuberant parrot Mak to the snack-obsessed tapir Rosie, from the persnickety echidna Epi to the acrobatic pangolin Pango, from the ditzy goat Scrubby to the commonsensical kingfisher Kiki and the always-cool chameleon Carmello, things are larger-than-life on a tropical isle that is pure wild animal paradise. Then Robinson Crusoe, a marooned human, arrives in the midst of a furious storm, and their lives are forever changed by this bewildering new “creature.” No matter their differences, castaway human and quirky animals embark on an hilarious new adventure, building the island’s first tree-house and surviving together. But when two conniving members of the animal kingdom – the savage cats Mal & May – pounce into a battle for control of the island, Crusoe and his animal posse must uncover the true power of friendship against all odds (even savage cats).
Not Rated, running time 105 minutes. Shows Sunday, Sept. 11 at 7 p.m at The Nevada Theatre. Seoul, 1986. A raucous gaggle of Korean teenagers spill out of the Gimpo airport and onto buses that transport them to a location just outside the city. There, these high schoolers sent from all over the world–the U.S., Mexico, London, and Hamburg–are participating in a government-sponsored summer program to help them connect with their heritage. With a summer of partying ahead of them, they’re on a crash course to bring shame to their families, their ancestors, and their hosts–but with any luck, they might just figure out how to make friends, fall in love, and absorb some of their roots along the way. “A buoyant, if undisciplined comedy about foreign-raised South Korean teenagers getting in touch with their ethnic roots.“ –Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times.
