Fifteen-year-old Brandon longs for a pair of the freshest sneakers that money can buy, assuming that merely having them on his feet will help him escape the reality of being poor, neglected by the opposite sex and picked on by everyone - even his best friends. Working hard to get them, he soon finds that the titular shoes have instead made him a target after they are promptly snatched by Flaco, a local hood. Brandon goes on a mission to retrieve his stolen sneakers.

"Tipping, who also co-wrote the polished script, captures this unique mix of adolescent anxiety, urban decay and societal friction in a remarkably confident fashion." - Barry Hertz, Globe and Mail

"What Tipping masters perfectly in the film is the constant ebb and flow of humor, and darkness, that runs through the narrative that is inner city boyhood." - Aramide Tinubu, Shadow and Act

"A dangerous quest for a stolen pair of shoes becomes an odyssey through ravaged California minority neighborhoods where drugs are omnipresent and violence is never far away. It is a tale of lost innocence, absent fathers and rites of passage." - Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope

The florida project

There will be a double feature of Tangerine (the previous feature from Baker, director of The Florida Project) at 6 pm and then The Florida Project on Friday at 9 pm. It will then be The Florida Project throughout the weekend. 

"It doesn't just show what its characters go through, it observes. It notices. It studies. This is a film that pays attention to the little details that communicate huge feelings." - Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune

"You feel as if you've slipped inside of Moonee's enchanted world, while at the same time seeing the harsh reality of Halley's. That contrast is devastating, right up to a final sequence that's sure to break your heart in two." - Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times

"Compassionately told through the eyes of a child, [the film] is a captivating observational drama filled with moments of incredible sadness, wide-eyed innocence and pure joy." - Kiko Martinez, San Antonio Current

A young boy befriends a giant robot from outer space that a paranoid government agent wants to destroy.
"While youngsters will enjoy the film on one level, it reaches out to adults on a completely different plane. They will see an allegory about power and politics and the danger of allowing either to run roughshod over humanity." - Jeff Strickler, Minneapolis Star Tribune

"This is sharp, sophisticated stuff, appreciated on different levels by both parents and children, and even those who are neither. The film has impish humor, great adventure and more than a few thrills." - Matt Soergel, Florida Times-Union

"Imagine E.T. as a towering metal man, and you have some of the appeal of The Iron Giant, an enchanting animated feature about a boy who makes friends with a robot from outer space." - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

Coco poster

Aspiring musician Miguel, confronted with his family's ancestral ban on music, enters the Land of the Dead to find his great-great-grandfather, a legendary singer.

"Coco is a beautiful, heartwarming, and visually exceptional achievement. The story of Miguel Rivera, a young, ambitious musician who crosses over to the Land of the Dead to find his purpose in life by connecting with his ancestors, is a universal narrative about the appreciation of family, the acceptance of loss and the aspiration to become what you were born to be. From the vibrant and imaginative papel picado-inspired opening sequence to the extraordinarily moving final act (the song “Recuérdame” will likely melt you into a bowl of champurrado), Coco is a cinematic gift to Latinos worldwide and easily the best animated film of the year. " - Kiko Martinez, Remezcla

"A wonderful return to form for Pixar, who again deliver the emotional and creative goods while exploring other cultures with a genuine, tangible, love and respect." - Linda Marric, HeyUGuys

"Funny and heart-tugging with some knockout tunes, the movie glows with warmth. And how many kids' cartoons would include a running Frida Kahlo gag? One to treasure." - Larushka Ivan-Zadeh, Metro (UK)
