New Releases

The following are new releases opening in theaters in the next week.

Breaking Upwards
'Breaking Upwards' explores a young, real-life New York couple who, fours years in and battling codependency, decide to intricately strategize their own break up.

Based on an actual experiment devised by director/actor Daryl Wein and actress Zoe Lister-Jones, the film loosely interprets a year in their lives exploring alternatives to monogamy, and the madness that ensues.

An uncensored look at young love, lust, and the pangs of codependency, 'Breaking Upwards' follows its characters as they navigate each others' emotions across the city they love. It begs the question: is it ever possible to grow apart together?

Starring Daryl Wein, Zoe Lister Jones, Julie White, Andrea Martin, Peter Friedman, Olivia Thirlby

With nothing left to lose, Perseus volunteers to lead a dangerous mission to defeat Hades before he can seize power from Zeus (Liam Neeson) and unleash hell on earth.

Leading a daring band of warriors, Perseus sets off on a perilous journey deep into forbidden worlds. Battling unholy demons and fearsome beasts, he will only survive if he can accept his power as a god, defy his fate and create his own destiny.

The Human Experience
This is a true story of a band of brothers who travel the world in search of the answers to the burning questions: Who am I? What is the reason for living? Have we forgotten what it means to be human? Their journey begins in the "concrete jungle," where the brothers spend the coldest days of the year living among the homeless on the streets of New York City. As their story unfolds, they find themselves among people from the far corners of the world: from the orphans and disabled children of Peru, to the abandoned lepers in the forests of Ghana, Africa. What the young men discover impacts them forever. The brothers are awakened to the beauty of the human person and the resilience of the human spirit.

The others soon realize they too are not immune to the challenges of commitment and fidelity.

And, Patricia, a successful self-help psychologist, must finally reveal the deep flaws in her seemingly perfect marriage to Gavin.

With their relationships hanging in the balance when they return home, each couple must choose between blame and forgiveness, doubt and faith, with life-altering consequences.
