Karate Kid
Karate Kid
This is a great remake of the 1984 film. Dre, a 12-year-old, is forced to move to Beijing with his auto-worker mother as a job requirement. Adjusting to urban China, he falls for a cute violinist named Meiying and gets plenty of bullying from his classmate, Cheng. Jackie Chan plays the apartment superintendent, Mr. Han, who is a dormant Kung Fu master. Han takes Dre under his wing to teach the art of self-defense against Cheng and to ready him for a martial arts tournament. (Available in theatres everywhere; Genre: Action, Family, Sports, Cultural, Drama ; Running Time: 2 hrs., 20 min.)

Joan RiversJoan Rivers:
A Piece of Work

You'll get an intimate look into Joan Rivers' inner and outer life. At 76-years-old, she continues to work tirelessly in show business. After 43 years as an entertainer who is addicted to celebrity, she has become thick-skinned, surviving betrayals from Johnny Carson and those in the industry, harsh critics, even the suicide of her husband. She's proven over time to be a tough and funny lady. (Available in select theatres only; Genre: Documentary, Comedy; Running Time: 84 min.)

The Lottery
The documentary serves as a call to action for major reforms nationwide in the educational system. Traditional public schools are failing our children. As a startling statistic, about 58% of African American 4th graders are functionally illiterate. The real-life drama in the film follows four families for months, from Harlem and the Bronx, who have entered their children in a charter school lottery to get into the Harlem Success Academy, one of the most successful schools in New York. It's a battle between zones and charter schools in their area. (Available in select theatres nationwide; Genre: Documentary, Drama, News; Running Time: 81 min.)
