Here Are the New Indies (Hopefully) Playing In a Theater Near You: 'Byzantium,' 'I'm So Excited,' 'Laurence Anyways' and More


"Museum Hours"
Opening In: New York
Synopsis: When a Vienna museum guard befriends an enigmatic visitor, the grand Kunsthistorisches Art Museum becomes a mysterious crossroads which sparks explorations of their lives, the city, and the ways art works reflect and shape the world.

"Petunia"
Opening In: New York
Synopsis: The story of a family whose growth is stunted... a family that learns how to love themselves while loving each other (a little too much). Brittany Snow and Thora Birch star in Ash Christian's must-see dark comedy about a family of New Yorkers coming to terms with the chaos and misgivings of life.  

From pregnancy to sex addiction to overbearing parents, "Petunia" is a film about the unpredictability of life that is sure to have you laughing the whole way through.


"Redemption"
Opening In: Limited Nationwide
Synopsis: 

A thriller centered on an war veteran who has reinvented himself as an upper-class Londoner has to embrace his violent past when his girlfriend is murdered.


"The Secret Disco Revoution"
Opening In: New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Berkley, Minneapolis, Seattle, Portland, Palm Springs, Columbus, Fort Lauderdale.
Synopsis: The disco era, long dismissed as a time of hedonistic excess, has been gravely misunderstood. Revisionist historians now argue the era was in fact an important time of protest: liberating gays, blacks and women. "The Secret Disco Revolution" juxtaposes disco revisionists against revealing new interviews with the era's biggest stars: The Village People, Gloria Gaynor, Kool and the Gang... A goldmine of rarely seen stock footage, and enough disco hits to shake your booty straight back to 1978. But the film's form is as revolutionary as its content:This quietly hilarious doc-satire also features an unreliable Nabokovian narrator; "reenactments" that are speculative to the point of complete fantasy; and a unique tone of sustained irony that both presents a fresh look at a well-known era, and compels audiences to question it, without ever allowing them off the dancefloor.

"Some Girl(s)"
Opening In: New York, Los Angeles
Synopsis: Based on his play by the same name, Neil LaBute's script follows a successful writer (Adam Brody) who, on the eve of his wedding, travels across the country to meet up with ex-lovers in an attempt to make amends for past relationship transgressions. Crisscrossing from Seattle to Boston, he reunites with high school sweetheart Sam (Jennifer Morrison), sexually free-spirited Tyler (Mia Maestro), married college professor Lindsay (Emily Watson), his best friend’s little sister Reggie (Zoe Kazan), and "the one that got away" Bobbi (Kristen Bell).  Daisy von Scherler Mayer 

("Party Girl") directs this journey of a modern-day Candide stumbling through a landscape familiar to most men—messy breakups.
