Pick of the Week

Skyfall Box Art

Skyfall

Bond is back. Daniel Craig returns in 007's newest adventure -- one of the biggest action flicks of the year, and arguably one of the best Bond films ever. Not bad for a 50-year-old film franchise. In 'Skyfall,' James Bond's loyalty to M is tested as her past returns to haunt her. With MI6 now compromised from both inside and out, M is left with one ally she can trust: Bond. 007 takes to the shadows -- aided only by a field agent, Eve -- following a trail to the mysterious Silva, whose lethal and hidden motives have yet to reveal themselves.

It's Time to Take a Stand

Bully Box Art

Bully

Award-winning filmmaker Lee Hirsch's character-driven documentary follows five kids and families over the course of a school year, offering insight into different facets of America's bullying crisis. The stories include families who have lost children to suicide and a mother awaiting the fate of her 14-year-old daughter, who has been incarcerated after bringing a gun on her school bus. The film is a powerful, provocative portrait of young lives affected by a serious problem, and a call to action against the violence, hate and intolerance that has gone unchecked for too long in our schools.
