  • Band Aid (NR)

    Zoe Lister-Jones wrote, coproduced, directed, stars in, and dominates nearly every scene of this hipster comedy about a feuding married couple, played by her and Adam Pally, who begin turning their frustrations into three-chord indie rock as a form of therapy and wind up fronting a popular band. more...
  • Dough (NR)

    The once-promising director Cédric Klapisch follows up Russian Dolls (2005) and Paris (2008) with another glossy coffee-table book of a film, presenting familiar content through handsome, instantly forgettable images. more...
