THIS WEEK’S FEATURE:

Academy Award-winner Tilda Swinton plays Julia, a manipulative, unreliable, compulsive liar, and an alcoholic. Between shots of vodka and one-night stands, Julia gets by on nickel-and-dime jobs. Increasingly lonely, the only consideration she receives comes from her friend Mitch, who tries to help her. After a chance encounter with Elena, a Mexican woman, Julia convinces herself – as much in panic and despair as for financial gain – to commit a violent act. As the story unfolds, her journey becomes a headlong flight on a collision course, but somehow she makes the choice of life over death.
“Riveting…an actress at the height of her expressive power.” – Manohla Dargis, The New York Times
“A messy, nervy, frequently exhilarating thriller.” – Scott Foundas, Village Voice/LA Weekly
