The Gatekeepers Genre: Documentary Director: Dror Moreh Rated: PG-13
Charged with overseeing Israel’s war on terror – both Palestinian and Jewish – the head of the Shin Bet, Israel’s secret service is present at the crossroad of every decision made.
For the first time ever, six former heads of the agency agreed to share their insights and reflect publicly on their actions and decisions. “The Gatekeepers” offers an exclusive account of the sum of their success and failures. It validates the reasons that each man individually and the six as a group came to reconsider their hardline positions and advocate a conciliatory approach toward their enemies based on a two-state solution.

A young family is tormented by the horrors of the past in “The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia,” a chilling new film based on a true story from Lionsgate and Gold Circle Films.
Building on the terror of The Haunting in Connecticut, this horrifying tale traces a young family’s nightmarish descent into a centuries-old Southern hell. When Andy Wyrick (Chad Michael Murray) moves his wife Lisa (Abigail Spencer) and daughter Heidi (Emily Alyn Lind) to a historic home in Georgia, they quickly discover they are not the house’s only inhabitants. Joined by Lisa’s free-spirited sister, Joyce (Katee Sackhoff), the family soon comes face-to-face with a bone-chilling mystery born of a deranged desire … a haunting secret rising from underground and threatening to bring down anyone in its path.
Stand Up Guys Genre: Action and comedy Cast: Al Pacino, Christopher Walken, Alan Arkin, Julianna Margulies, Vanessa Ferlito and Mark Margolis Director: Fisher Stevens Rated: R
“Stand Up Guys” stars Academy Award winners Al Pacino, Christopher Walken and Alan Arkin in a tough but touching action comedy as retired gangsters who reunite for one epic last night.
Val (Pacino) is released from prison after serving twenty-eight years for refusing to give up one of his close criminal associates. His best friend Doc (Walken) is there to pick him up, and the two soon reteam with another old pal, Hirsch (Arkin). Their bond is as strong as ever, and the three reflect on freedom lost and gained, loyalties ebbed and flowed, and days of glory gone by. And despite their age, their capacity for mayhem is still very much alive and well – bullets fly as they make a hilariously valiant effort to compensate for the decades of crime, drugs and sex they've missed.
But one of the friends is keeping a dangerous secret – he’s been put in an impossible quandary by a former mob boss, and his time to find an acceptable alternative is running out. As the sun rises on the guys' legendary reunion, their position becomes more and more desperate and they finally confront their past once and for all.
