EXHILARATING. Stephen Holden, New York Times

In 1974, Philippe Petit stepped out on a wire illegally rigged between New York's twin towers, 1,350 Feet above the sidewalks of Manhattan. The testimonies of Petit and his co-conspirators, archival footage and reenactments bring to life the adventure and magnificent spectacle that became known as the artistic crime of the century.  In Theatres August 15.

Starring Oscar-nominee Penlope Cruz and Academy Award-winner Ben Kingsley, with extraordinary supporting performances from Dennis Hopper, Patricia Clarkson and Peter Sarsgaard, Elegy is based on Pulitzer Prize-winner Philip Roths short novel The Dying Animal.

Elegy charts the passionate relationship between a celebrated college professor and a young woman whose beauty both ravishes and destabilizes him. As their intimate connection transforms them more than either could imagine a charged sexual contest evolves into an indelible love story. With humanistic warmth, wry wit and erotic intensity, Elegy explores the power of beauty to blind, to reveal and to transform.  In theatres August 22.
