          WALKAWAY JOE follows the lives of Joe Haley and Dallas McCarthy, a road weary loner and a fourteen year-old boy, thrown together in this story about fathers and sons. When Dallas pool-hustling father abandons his family, Dallas takes to his bicycle and goes on the road after him.... No stranger to the bar scene or the world of pool hustling himself, Dallas is determined to confront his father and bring him home. Enter Joe Haley, a drifter wrestling with a past hed rather forget. Feeling responsible for the boys safety, Joe reluctantly becomes the boys protector. From the pool halls of Louisiana, through fights with bar drunks, visits to ex-wives, and threats from loan sharks hot on his fathers trail, Dallas and Joe push each others buttons, but ultimately forge a sort of father-son relationship of their own. It all leads to a climactic nine-ball tournament where Dallas must face down his delinquent father, and a wedding where Joe is forced to confront the son he abandoned long ago. In the end, Dallas comes to understand what it means to be true to yourself and Joe becomes a mentor to the boy in a way neither father could ever be to their own sons.

          The first Spanish-language production in nearly 17 years from Oscar-winning writer/director Alejandro Amenbar (The Sea Inside, The Others, Agora), WHILE AT WAR is a powerful and hugely resonant historical drama set in the first months of the Spanish Civil War, depicting how the c...ountry inexorably slid into nearly four decades of fascism under dictator Francisco Franco. Its July, 1936. Nationalist forces take to the streets of Salamanca, challenging the authority of the democratically elected Second Spanish Republic, and arresting the citys mayor for the crime of being Republican. However, the esteemed Miguel de Unamuno (Karra Elejalde) author, professor, and rector, pays the uprising little mind: for all his wisdom and experience, this great man of letters doesnt believe that his country is under imminent threat. Initially defying his friends and family by publicly supporting the rebellion, its not until his colleagues are rounded up that Miguel begins to reconsider his principles, hoping he can exert his considerable influence to bring reason before its too late Nominated for 17 Spanish Academy (Goya) Awards in 2020, including Best Picture, Director and Actor, Amenbars deeply intelligent and spectacularly mounted drama depicts a nation split between those compelled by egalitarianism, and others driven by reactionary visions of how to make Spain great again. WHILE AT WAR sounds a powerful alarm about the complexity of patriotism, the perils of neutrality and how compassion and dialogue are too-often fragile virtues.
