“Lucky Grandma” is a rollicking, follow-the-money caper about a Chinese-American woman in New York City who is spurred into action after receiving good news. In the heart of Chinatown, an ornery, chain-smoking, newly widowed 80-year-old Grandma (Tsai Chin) is eager to live life as an independent woman, despite her family’s worries. When a local fortune teller predicts a most auspicious day in her future, Grandma decides to head to the casino and goes all in, only to land herself on the wrong side of luck, suddenly attracting the attention of some local gangsters. Desperate to protect herself, Grandma employs the services of a bodyguard from a rival gang and soon finds herself right in the middle of a Chinatown gang war.
“Military Wives” is a moving British comedy-drama that centers around a band of women who inspire each other through music while their partners are away serving in Afghanistan. Coming from different backgrounds and faced with their loved ones' absences, these women come together to form the very first military wives choir, helping each other through some of life's most difficult moments, and quickly find themselves on an international stage. Peter Cattaneo (“The Full Monty”) directs Kristin Scott Thomas and Sharon Horgan in this feel-good crowd-pleaser inspired by true events.
