CAST
SING 2 (2021)
Starring Garth Jennings, Taron Egerton, Reese Witherspoon, Tori Kelly, Matthew McConaughey, Scarlett Johansson, Seth MacFarlane, Nick Kroll, John C. Reilly and Bobby Cannavale. Directed by Garth Jennings.

Buster has turned the New Moon Theater into a local hit, but Buster has his eyes on a bigger prize: Debuting a new show at the Crystal Tower Theater in glamorous Redshore City.

But with no connections, Buster and his cast - including harried mother pig Rosita, rocker porcupine Ash, earnest gorilla Johnny, shy elephant Meena and, of course, porcine provocateur Gunter - have to sneak their way into the world-famous Crystal Entertainment offices, run by ruthless mogul wolf Jimmy Crystal.

In a desperate attempt to get Mr. Crystal’s attention, Gunter spontaneously pitches an outrageous idea that Buster quickly runs with, promising that their new show will star lion rock legend Clay Calloway. Problem is, Buster has never met Clay, an artist who shut himself away from the world more than a decade ago after the loss of his wife. Even worse, Buster has failed to realize that Mr Crystal is an egocentric gangster who would rather drop somebody off the roof of a building than be lied to.

As Gunter helps Buster dream up an out-of-this-world theatrical masterpiece, and the pressure (and sinister threats) from Mr Crystal mount, Rosita’s leading role in the show gets ripped away and handed to Mr. Crystal’s spoiled daughter, Porsha, played by Grammy-nominated artist Halsey. Desperate to save the show, and his life, Buster embarks on a quest to find Clay and persuade him to return to the stage.

What begins as a dream of big-time success becomes an emotional reminder of the power of music to heal even the most broken heart.

Meg Murry is a typical middle school student struggling with issues of self-worth who just want to fit in. The daughter of two world-renowned physicists, she is intelligent and uniquely gifted, as is Meg’s younger brother, Charles Wallace, but she has yet to realize it for herself. Complicating matters is the mysterious disappearance of Mr. Murry, which has left Meg devastated and her mother broken-hearted. Charles Wallace introduces Meg and her fellow classmate Calvin to three celestial beings (Mrs. Which, Mrs. Whatsit and Mrs. Who) who have journeyed to Earth to help search for their father, and together they embark on their formidable quest. Travelling via a wrinkling of time and space known as tessering, they are transported to worlds beyond their imagination where they must confront a powerful evil force. To make it back home to Earth, Meg must face the darkness within herself in order to harness the strength necessary to defeat the darkness rapidly enveloping the Universe.

THE GOOD LIE
Starring Reese Witherspoon, Arnold Oceng, Ger Duany, Emmanuel Jal, Corey Stoll, Maria Howell and Sarah Baker. Directed by Philippe Falardeau.

An incredible story inspired by true events that follows the journey of four orphans who survive a vicious attack on their Sudanese village, only to face a harrowing trek to a U.N. refugee camp in Kenya. Close on a decade later, they win a "human" lottery to relocate to America where they face the unique and bittersweet challenges of adjusting to the foreign world.

In the U.S., Mamere and his sister Abital, now in their twenties, are thrilled to start their new lives. But immigration wrenches the small family apart demanding that Abital be placed with a family in Boston, sending Mamere and his friends Jeremiah and Paul to fend for themselves in Kansas City. There the boys meet Carrie (Academy Award® winner Reese Witherspoon), a sassy and brash employment agent who has reluctantly signed on to help them find jobs.

In spite of the vast and often amusing cultural differences, the three resourceful young men thrive. The adjustment to their new life is not always easy, but Carrie helps them navigate the strange landscape of America. As a fiercely independent single woman, Carrie finds herself drawn deeply into their lives and, slowly transformed by the young men’s strength, kindness and optimism, begins to understand the real gift of family.
