    FILM SYNOPSIS
    Raymond Shaw (Laurence Harvey) is a Staff Sergeant in the Korean war serving alongside Major Ben Marco (Frank Sinatra) when their patrol is ambushed by Communist soldiers. Having escaped, the squad returns to the US where Raymond is to receive the Medal of Honor for single-handedly saving the lives of his squad. Marco, however, becomes suspicious of Shaw after his recurring nightmares lead him to believe there is more to the rescue than meets the eye and launches himself into a world of corruption, politics, intrigue, and of course, brainwashing.

    "The true mark of an essential film is how well it stands the test of time. When it was re-released in 1988, The Manchurian Candidate caused as much, or more, of a sensation than on its initial theatrical run, finding an entirely new generation of admirers. Since that time, it has taken on an almost mythic importance due to the events that transpired in its wake. NOT to be missed" - Variety Magazine

    Regina Lambert returns to Paris from a ski holiday in Switzerland to find that her husband has been murdered. She is later told by CIA agent Hamilton Bartholemew that Charles Lambert was one of five men who stole $250,000 in gold from the U.S. government during World War II, and the government wants it back. The money was not found among his possessions, and Regina can shed no light on its whereabouts. Later that day she is visited by Peter Joshua, whom she had met briefly while on holiday. When her husband's former partners in crime, who were double-crossed by Charles, start calling her looking for the money, Peter offers to help find it. Thus begins an elaborate charade in which nothing is what it seems to be.

    "The one thing you can count on from Ruthie Foster anytime she steps onto a stage is being blown away by both her powerhouse voice and her familial warmth. ...the Texas singer-songwriter brought the standing room only crowd into her embrace, holding them gently in her grip like a long-lost cousin for almost two hours of song and story." – Atlanta Journal

    In the tight-knit musical community of Austin, Texas, it’s tough to get away with posturing. You either bring it, or you don’t. If you do, word gets around. And one day, you find yourself duetting with Bonnie Raitt, or standing onstage with the Allman Brothers at New York’s Beacon Theater and trading verses with Susan Tedeschi. You might even wind up getting nominated for a Best Blues Album Grammy — three times in a row. And those nominations would be in addition to your seven Blues Music Awards, three Austin Music Awards, the Grand Prix du Disque award from the Académie Charles-Cros in France, and a Living Blues Critics’ Award for Female Blues Artist of the Year. She also won the Koko Taylor Award, honoring notable female blues artists, in the Blues Music Awards in 2013 and 2015.

    On March 24, 2017, Ruthie released her new album Joy Comes Back with special guests Derek Trucks, bassist Willie Weeks (Bowie, Clapton, George Harrison) and drumming legend Joe Vitale (Crosby, Stills & Nash; the Eagles). In it are ten incredible tracks, which are by a diverse array of writers ranging from Mississippi John Hurt, Sean Staples and Grace Pettis (daughter of renowned folk singer Pierce Pettis), to Chris Stapleton and Black Sabbath. Yes, Black Sabbath: Foster reimagines “War Pigs” as a jam session with Son House. She also covers the Four Tops’ “Loving You Is Sweeter Than Ever,” written by Ivy Jo Hunter and Stevie Wonder.

    Her last three releases each received GRAMMY nominations and are critically acclaimed. Ruthie Foster also won the Koko Taylor Award, honoring notable female blues artists, in the Blues Music Awards in 2013 and 2015.

    Adam Ezra Group's songwriting is making waves around the country.

    The co-write, “Let Your Hair Down” with producers Shep Goodman and Aaron Accetta, (American Authors), just received "Song of the Year" at the New England Music Awards. A songwriting partnership with the legendary John Oates is taking Ezra back and forth between Nashville and tour. The theme song, "Grow Your Own Way," was central to Midwest insurance giant, Country Financial's 2014/15 marketing campaign. In addition, Adam Ezra's debut efforts in movie scoring have lead to an appearance at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival and the release of Adam Ezra Group's new album, aptly titled, Songs for a Movie.

    The Group is made up of lead singer, songwriter and guitarist, Adam Ezra, Alex Martin on drums, Turtle on percussion, Corinna Smith on fiddle, Francis Hickey on bass and Josh Gold on keys. Together they are creating a powerful, inclusive community around AEG shows that is beginning to be compared to a social-movement as much as a traditional music fan-base. It's this dedication to fans that inspired the 2016 "Get Folked Concert Tour" in which Ezra ventured solo/acoustic to the homes of 30 fans in as many days and almost as many states to play house concerts throughout the entire month of January.
