THE BREAD­WIN­NER

MPAA rat­ing: PG-13 for the­matic ma­te­rial in­clud­ing some vi­o­lent images

Movies at the TCA

From ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer An­gelina Jolie and the cre­ators of the Academy Award-nom­i­nated “The Se­cret of Kells” and “Song of the Sea,” comes the highly an­tic­i­pated an­i­mated fea­ture based on Deb­o­rah El­lis’ best­selling novel. Par­vana is an 11-year-old girl grow­ing up un­der the Taliban in Afghanistan in 2001. When her fa­ther is wrong­fully ar­rested, Par­vana cuts off her hair and dresses like a boy to sup­port her fam­ily.

Work­ing along­side her friend Shauzia, Par­vana dis­cov­ers a new world of free­dom and dan­ger. With un­daunted courage, Par­vana draws strength from the fan­tas­ti­cal sto­ries she in­vents as she em­barks on a quest to find her fa­ther and re­unite her fam­ily.

Equal parts thrilling and en­chant­ing, “The Bread­win­ner” is an in­spir­ing and lu­mi­nously an­i­mated tale about the power of sto­ries to sus­tain hope and carry us through dark times. This film will be screened at 2 p.m. Sun­day (April 1), and at 7 p.m. Mon­day through Wed­nes­day (April 2-4).

Movies at the TCA film se­ries, Taos Com­mu­nity Au­di­to­rium, 145 Paseo del Pue­blo Norte. For tick­ets and ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion, call the Taos Cen­ter for the Arts at (575) 758-2052 or visit tcataos.org.

I CAN ONLY IMAG­INE

MPAA rat­ing: PG for the­matic el­e­ments in­clud­ing some vi­o­lence Mitchell Sto­ry­teller 7

It’s the song that brings ul­ti­mate hope to so many of­ten in the midst of life’s most chal­leng­ing mo­ments. Amaz­ingly, the song was writ­ten in mere min­utes by Mer­cyMe lead singer Bart Mil­lard (played in the movie by J. Michael Fin­ley). In re­al­ity, those lyrics took a life­time to craft.

Although he found faith at a young age, life wasn’t easy for Bart. He leaned into an ac­tive imag­i­na­tion and his love of mu­sic as an es­cape from a trou­bled home life.

As he grew older, Bart turned to foot­ball in hopes of some­how con­nect­ing with his abu­sive fa­ther. But a ca­reer-end­ing in­jury, com­bined with the vi­sion of a teacher who saw un­lim­ited po­ten­tial, set Bart on a mu­si­cal path­way. Chas­ing a dream while run­ning from bro­ken re­la­tion­ships with his fa­ther and Shannon (Made­line Car­roll), his child­hood sweet­heart, Bart hits the road in an old, de­crepit tour bus with his new band Mer­cyMe, named for his grand­mother’s fa­vorite ex­pres­sion. With the guid­ance of a griz­zled mu­sic-in­dus­try insider, the band be­gins a jour­ney none of them could ever have imag­ined.

Di­rected by broth­ers Andrew and Jon Er­win, the film co-stars Trace Ad­kins, Priscilla Shirer, Cloris Leach­man and Den­nis Quaid.

A grip­ping re­minder of the power of for­give­ness, “I Can Only IMag­ine” beau­ti­fully il­lus­trates that no one is ever too far from God’s love or from an eter­nal home in Heaven. This film will be screened daily. Mitchell Sto­ry­teller 7 The­atres, 110 Old Talpa Cañón Road.

MID­NIGHT SUN

MPAA rat­ing: PG-13 for some teen par­ty­ing and sen­su­al­ity Mitchell Sto­ry­teller 7

This film from Di­rec­tor Scott Speer is de­scribed as a ro­man­tic tear­jerker about 17-year-old Katie Price (Bella Thorne),

shel­tered at home since child­hood with a rare ge­netic con­di­tion: a life-threat­en­ing sen­si­tiv­ity to sun­light.

Hav­ing only her fa­ther Jack (Rob Rig­gle) for com­pany, Katie’s world opens up af­ter dark when she ven­tures out­side to play her gui­tar. One night, her dreams come true when she’s no­ticed and asked out by her long­time crush Char­lie (Pa­trick Sch­warzeneg­ger), whom she’s se­cretly watched from her bed­room win­dow for years. As they em­bark on nightly sum­mer ex­cur­sions, Katie’s risk to sun­light grows, and she’s pre­sented with the gut-wrench­ing dilemma of whether she can live a nor­mal life with her new­found soul mate.

This film will be screened daily. Mitchell Sto­ry­teller 7 The­atres, 110 Old Talpa Cañón Road. For show times, tick­ets and ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion, call (575) 751-4245 or visit sto­ry­teller7.com.

SHER­LOCK GNOMES

MPAA rat­ing: PG for some rude and sug­ges­tive hu­mor

Mitchell Sto­ry­teller 7

When Gnomeo and Juliet (voiced by James McAvoy and Emily Blunt) first ar­rive in the city with their friends and fam­ily, their big­gest con­cern is get­ting their new gar­den ready for spring.

How­ever, they soon dis­cover that some­one is kid­nap­ping gar­den gnomes all over Lon­don. When Gnomeo and Juliet re­turn home to

find that ev­ery­one in their gar­den is miss­ing, there’s only one gnome to call: Sher­lock Gnomes (Johnny Depp).

The fa­mous de­tec­tive and sworn pro­tec­tor of Lon­don’s gar­den gnomes ar­rives with his side­kick Wat­son (Chi­we­tel Ejio­for) to in­ves­ti­gate the case. The mys­tery will lead our gnomes on a rol­lick­ing ad­ven­ture where they will meet all new or­na­ments and ex­plore an undis­cov­ered side of the city.

Di­rected by Jon Steven­son, this an­i­mated com­edy fea­tures the voice tal­ents of Michael Caine, Mary J. Blige, James Hong, Ozzy Os­bourne, Mag­gie Smith and Julie Wal­ters. This film will be screened daily. Mitchell Sto­ry­teller 7 The­atres, 110 Old Talpa Cañón Road.
