During the US housing market meltdown, Dennis Nash (Andrew Garfield), a hard-working and honest man, can’t save his home
despite his best efforts. Thrown to the streets by real estate shark Rick Carver (Michael Shannon), Dennis is offered a deal with the devil – he can join Carver’s crew to earn back his home. Unable to resist, Dennis enters a world of shady transactions where the losses of the many are the gain of a few. A compassionate portrait of a man who has become ensnared within an all-too-relevant American
crisis, this provocative character study explores the ethical dilemma at the heart of man’s struggle to reach higher – by whatever means
necessary.

France/Belgium 2015
French with English subtitles / 85 minutes

Success is everything to Florence (Marina Foïs) and Vincent
(Laurent Lafitte) Leroy, be it in their careers, their marriage, or their
children. And it goes without saying that they’ll also be successful in
divorce. But when they both receive the promotions they’ve always dreamed of, everything changes. In their bid for success, each of the former model parents will stop at nothing to make sure that they will not be the one to end up with custody of their three children. A decidedly unconventional take on custody battles, Papa ou Maman is full of fun and mayhem.
