From time to time, extenuating circumstances bring together the unlikeliest of allies. That’s exactly where we find Don (Shea Whigham) and Phyllis (Carrie Coon). Tasked by mobsters with putting an end to Phyllis’ life, Don is unable to pull the trigger, and instead the two set off on a road trip that evolves into something much more. You see, Phyllis has designs of her own and proposes a little tag team action to Don: combine forces with the aim to steal all the money from the people who want her dead. And so their twisted story begins.

Lake George will be preceded by the short Officer Stanley

In the 1980s, Andrew McCarthy was part of a young generation of actors who were set to take over Hollywood after a string of successful teen movies. However, when one New York magazine cover story in 1985 dubs them the Brat Pack, these stars in the making suddenly find themselves losing control over the trajectory of their careers. Now, almost forty years later, McCarthy looks to reconnect with peers and co-stars, such as Emilio Estevez, Jon Cryer, Lea Thompson, Rob Lowe, Ally Sheedy, and Demi Moore, so that together they can reflect on their respective legacies. McCarthy also interviews fans and cultural critics to better understand the impact the Brat Pack movies have had over the decades.

After the Premiere Screening: Panel to follow featuring director Andrew McCarthy, other members of the cast, and surprise guests.

You know that the iconic track “Bam Bam” has left a mark on music since taking the industry by storm in 1982, but what do you know of the incredible artist who laid her passionate vocals down to give it life? Sister Nancy is one of the most legendary Dancehall artists to grace a mic, and yet the understanding of her impact and legacy suffers beyond diehards of the genre. It’s time to rectify that. The song that has become a sample darling and star-making vehicle for many artists now brings into focus the trials, tribulations and rousing success of its original songstress.

After the Premiere Screening: Special performance by Sister Nancy with DJ Gravy.

When two couples, Abby and Benjamin, and David and recently-converted-to-Judaism Meg, return home for Shabbat dinner, an unexpected shadow looms over their night — an accidental death (or is it murder?) threatens to unravel the whole evening. Over the course of one night during this anything-but-typical New York City shabbos, their family get-together takes a turn for the worse…
