Directed by Mad Men star, John Slattery ‘God’s Pocket’ stars the late, great Philip Seymour Hoffman in one of his final roles.
When Mickey’s (Hoffman) crazy stepson Leon is killed in a construction ‘accident,’ nobody in the working class neighborhood of God’s Pocket is sorry he’s gone. Mickey tries to bury the bad news with the body, but when the boy’s mother demands the truth, and a local reporter starts sniffing around, Mickey finds himself stuck in a darkly comedic life and death struggle. A body he can’t bury, a wife he can’t please and a debt he can’t pay.

Half of a Yellow Sun
When civil war breaks out in Nigeria in the late 1960s, political lines are drawn and families are forced to scatter. Odenigbo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and Olanna (Thandie Newton) find themselves in the middle of an escalating conflict that drives them from their university-town home and threatens Olanna’s relationship with her sister, Kainene (Anika Noni Rose).
As the war escalates, and the situation in the newly established Biafra becomes increasingly hopeless, Odenigbo, Olanna and their family struggle in the face of hardships of every kind – yet still find a way to survive.
