If the name "Hokusai" is unfamiliar, you will know the famous painting of a breaking wave which is his masterpiece. In this ravishing anime, we see that the artist may have had some unacknowledged help from his daughter. This gorgeous film is another example of the maturity and depth Japanese animators bring to the form.

At the age of 57, after years of blue collar jobs and another 20 years of small clubs and no breaks, Sharon Jones seemed finally to have hit the big time with her band the Dap-Kings. Then she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. But that wasn’t going to stop her. Directed by legendary documentarian Barbara Kopple (Harlan County, USA), Miss Sharon Jones! is part music film, part cancer survival story, and 100% soul.

Three twenty-something brothers are sent on a wilderness adventure designed as the last will and testament of their late and eccentric parents. In order to gain their inheritance, the three must all complete the trek together. Along the way, Daniel (the eldest, a father and business man), Tyler (the middle son, aimless and sensitive), and Jordan (the youngest brother, sweet and naive) encounter their eccentric stoner guide, Carter Cooper Jr., who seems to heighten the tension on an already tenuous trip.
