In contemporary China, the once-celebrated art of poetry is no more than a relic of a bygone age. If you want to live the coveted “Chinese dream,” you simply have to work for it – and very hard. The exceptions to this rule are the migrant workers in this film, and the poems they write express feelings about the daily hardships they face. Through poetry they rediscover their own sense of dignity and offer subtle insight into their innermost thoughts.
A dramatic thriller based on the incredible true David vs. Goliath story of American immigrant Dr. Bennet Omalu, the brilliant forensic neuropathologist who made the first discovery of CTE, a football-related brain trauma, in a pro player and fought for the truth to be known.
Brooklyn mobster and prolific hit man Jimmy Conlon has seen better days. Longtime best friend of a mob boss, Jimmy is haunted by the sins of his past—as well as a dogged police detective who’s been one step behind Jimmy for 30 years.
