Those Left Behind
Jamie was only 16 years old when he took an overdose of pills and stepped off the end of the dock at his family’s summer home. No explanation could explain the terrible choice he made. Like the path of a stone, fiercely thrown, his death damaged all that it touched. A family history forever shattered into before and after. Those left behind - his mother Peg, 40s, his father Robert, 40s and his sister Shelly, 19. Now, 25 years after Jamie’s death, Shelly, 45, a successful doctor and a good single mother to her 16-year-old son Noah, finally returns to the family’s summer home to help Peg recover from minor heart surgery. Although Peg has come to terms with her grief over her son, the years have not brought closure for Shelly or her father Robert. Both believe that they were to blame for Jamie’s death. Unable to witness the other’s grief, father and daughter, once close, became estranged. Peg hopes her daughter’s visit will bring Robert and Shelly finally back together again.

The Wedding Invitation
The Wedding Invitation is the story of three best friends and their plight to find dates to the wedding of a lifetime. They have one week to track down their crushes and turn them into plus-ones. Their mission, splattered with drunken-dry-heaving, walk-of-shame moments will require them to break all of the dating rules to make it happen. Why this week? This is the week that they stop waiting for men to choose them. This is the week they take back their control. This week... they make their own fate! It's awkward and embarrassing and cringe-worthy and slightly raunchy, but with a dose of courage, the support of their girlfriends, and a few shots of tequila… anything's possible.

Programmer's Note: Burt Bacharach, winner of eight Grammy Awards and three Oscars, composed the score for Po.
"The cause is close to Bacharach’s heart: His daughter Nikki has Asperger’s Syndrome. Bacharach met the film’s director, John Asher, by chance on a flight last year and agreed to let Asher use his classic, “Close to You,” made famous by the Carpenters. Upon seeing the film, he agreed to compose the music. I was so touched by the film that scoring it was a labor of love, he said in a statement." - Billboard, 12/18/15
