First theatrical releases of the year!

In January, film distribution company The Searchers releases the first films of the impressive line-up for this year.

In ‘Colette’, starring Keira Knightley, we follow Gabrielle Colette, who is transplanted from her childhood home in rural France to the intellectual and artistic splendor of Paris. Soon after, her husband Willy convinces Colette to ghostwrite for him. Colette, in turn, pens a semi-autobiographical novel about a witty and brazen country girl named Claudine, sparking a bestseller and a cultural sensation. After it’s success, Colette and Willy become the talk of Paris and their adventures inspire additional Claudine novels. Colette’s fight over creative ownership and gender roles drives her to overcome societal constraints, revolutionizing literature, fashion and sexual expression.

Julia Roberts and Ben Hedges star in the compelling drama ‘Ben is Back’, where a drug addicted teenage boy shows up unexpectedly at his family’s home on Christmas Eve.
