    Candid, vulnerable and sincere. Frédéric Tcheng delivers a compelling feature-length documentary powerfully merging the prominent French haute couture designer, the revolutionary Christian Dior, with the new to couture Raf Simons who is described by Tcheng as “an uncanny reincarnation of Dior himself.”

    Dior and I takes the viewer on an eight-week journey to the runway revealing the creative process, artistic direction and the unknowingly necessary attention to Dior’s heritage-filled atelier.

    Ego and narcissism mix into a fine cocktail for the setting of the latest bromance film from actors James Franco and Jonah Hill, though the seriousness of it’s premise is all too real.

    In 2002, an on the rise New York Times field reporter Michael Finkel (Hill) is fired from his prestigious journalism job for writing a composited story about a non-existent young African boy who is sold into bondage on a cocoa plantation.

    While an affair conducted between the hours of 5 and 7 p.m. may suggest trappings of a clichéd rom-com, 5 to 7 is much more unconventional than that. Written and directed by Victor Levin (Mad Men), the story looks at an extramarital affair through new eyes, to discover the intricacies that lurk in the places many people gloss over when making assumptions about someone’s love life.
