This documentary short finds Hilary Knight looking back on his life as an artist and his connection to the immensely popular Eloise books, written by Kay Thompson and illustrated by Knight. For 60 years, Eloise – the precocious six-year-old who lives in New York’s Plaza Hotel – has charmed her way into the hearts of young readers, one of them being actress/director/writer Lena Dunham, whose Eloise tattoo led to a friendship with Knight, a creative kindred spirit. Whimsical and personal, the film features revealing interviews with Lena and Hilary, as well as family members, friends and writers who have been inspired by Knight’s work and childlike personality. Showcasing Hilary’s own handheld video footage, as well as original Eloise drawings brought to life through delightful animation, It’s Me, Hilary: The Man Who Drew Eloise® shines a light on a talented and inspired artist, who has persevered through professional and personal obstacles – including his estrangement from Thompson – all while embracing the lighter side of life.

An official selection of the 2014 Los Angeles Film Festival®, this HBO Films® presentation is a fascinating portrait of one man’s descent into the delusions of a fractured mind. Told with incisive imagery, energy and humor, Nightingale is a compassionate depiction of isolation in the midst of a world ruled by social media. David Oyelowo gives a spellbinding, roller-coaster ride of a performance as Peter, the sole character in the film, a war veteran who lives in a nondescript ranch home with his mother, and shares an ongoing monologue with himself, and the audience, via his laptop computer’s video recorder.

Season 1 of The Knick® Now available on DVD and Blu-ray!
In this new scripted drama from director Steven Soderbergh (who directed all ten episodes), brilliant surgeon John Thackery (Oscar® nominee Clive Owen) pushes the boundaries of medicine, morality and race relations in 1900 at a downtown NYC hospital known as The Knick. While Dr.Thackery searches to solve a plethora of medical mysteries and develops an unhealthy addiction to cocaine, which was legal at the time, the fate of The Knick, short for The Knickerbocker Hospital, hangs in the balance.
Thanks to the influence of rich patrons like Cornelia Robertson (Juliet Rylance) Thackery is paired against his will with a young black doctor, Algernon Edwards (André Holland), whose intelligence and at-all-costs methods rivals Thackery’s, and is hired over Thackery’s protégé, Dr. Everett Gallinger (Eric Johnson). Other supporters of Thackery at the hospital include Dr. “Bertie” Chickering Jr. (Michael Angarano), a young surgeon secretly in love with nurse Lucy Elkins (Eve Hewson), who is drawn to Thackery; Sister Harriet (Cara Seymour), who runs the foundling hospital and maternity ward; Herman Barrow (Jeremy Bobb), the Knick’s crooked superintendent, awash in debt and willing to risk The Knick’s future to pay it off; and Tom Cleary (Chris Sullivan), the ambulance driver, who will stoop to the lowest depths to bring the right kind of patients to The Knick.
Ten years ago she was TV’s “”It”” girl. Now, it’s a different story. For Valerie Cherish, no price is too high to pay for clinging to the television spotlight. Lisa Kudrow stars as Valerie Cherish, a former B-list sitcom star so desperate to revive her career that she agrees to star in a reality television show called The Comeback.
The Comeback, which premiered in 2005, was a 13-episode half-hour comedy series starring Lisa Kudrow (Friends®), and created/executive produced by Michael Patrick King (Sex and the City®) and Kudrow, and executive produced by John Melfi (Sex and the City®) and Dan Bucatinsky (Scandal®). Kudrow starred as Valerie Cherish, a former B-list sitcom star so desperate to revive her career that she agrees to star in a reality television show called The Comeback, with cameras following her every move as she lands a part in a new network sitcom, Room and Bored.
Nine years after its debut, The Comeback returns as an 8-episode limited series, with Lisa Kudrow reprising her Emmy® – nominated role as Valerie Cherish! It’s now ten years later, and Valerie has hired a student film crew to shoot footage she hopes will get the attention of Bravo®, and put her back on the map. In addition to Kudrow, returning cast members include Lance Barber as Paulie G.; Dan Bucatinsky as Valerie’s high-strung publicist Billy; Robert Michael Morris as her devoted hairstylist Mickey; Damian Young as her husband Mark; Laura Silverman as Jane; and Malin Akerman as Juna (now a bona-fide movie star). Notable guests (playing versions of themselves) include Sean Hayes, Conan O’Brien, Andy Cohen, Aisha Tyler, and others.
The one-hour HBO® drama series created by Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network®) and executive produced by Sorkin, Scott Rudin and Alan Poul is back for a third and final season. Smart, topical, thought-provoking and highly entertaining, The Newsroom® takes a behind-the-scenes look at a high-rated cable-news program at the fictional Atlantis Cable News (ACN) Network, focusing on the on- and off-camera lives of its acerbic anchor (Jeff Daniels), executive producer (Emily Mortimer), their newsroom staff (John Gallagher, Jr., Alison Pill, Thomas Sadoski, Olivia Munn, Dev Patel and others), news-division boss (Sam Waterston) and parent-company CEO (Jane Fonda).
