WHIPLASH -- NOW PLAYING
RFC audiences are loving this Academy Award nominee for Best Picture, starring Miles Teller (The Spectacular Now) as a young drummer struggling under the tutelage of a sadistic jazz teacher played by J.K. Simmons (Juno), a performance that has garnered him several trophies and just may earn the Best Supporting Actor honor at the Academy Awards. Drama, 107 min., R.

BOYHOOD -- OPENS JANUARY 23
We loved this film so much, we're bringing it back for the RFC audience before the big awards night. This coming-of-age tale from director Richard Linklater (Bernie) was filmed with the same cast over 12 years, following Mason from age 6 to college. The acclaim for this film is overwhelming (check out just a few below). The Academy agrees, nominating the film for 6 Oscars. Drama, 165 min., R.
Critical acclaim for Boyhood
Time Out New York: Unshakable, witty and deeply felt, the film will be paying emotional dividends for a long, long time.
Washington Post: As a film that dares to honor small moments and the life they add up to, Boyhood isn’t just a masterpiece. It’s a miracle.
Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times: Once in a great while I see a movie I know I’ll be listing as one of my all-time favorites for the rest of my days. So it is with this remarkable, unforgettable, elegant epic that is about one family — and millions of families.
Rolling Stone: Want to know what it's like to be in on the discovery of a new American classic? Check out Boyhood. Richard Linklater's coming-of-age tale is the best movie of the year, a four-star game-changer that earns its place in the cultural time capsule.
indieWIRE: Epic in scope yet unassuming throughout, Linklater's incredibly involving chronicle marks an unprecedented achievement in fictional storytelling.
Empire: Linklater’s beautiful film is an extraordinary achievement — tender, funny, wise and wistful, full of warmth and humanity.
