Nicolas Cage plays an unremarkable biology professor who finds his life turned upside down when millions of strangers suddenly start seeing him in their dreams.

MAY 10 @ 1 PM: A DANGEROUS METHOD

In 1907, Sigmund Freud and Carl Gustav Jung began what promised to be both a momentous collaboration and the deepest friendship of each man’s life. Six years later they were bitter antagonists, locked in a savage struggle. In between them stood a young woman named Sabina Spielrein: a patient and lover to Jung, a colleague and confidante to Freud, and one of the greatest minds in modern psychiatry. The film through the fatal triangle of Freud, Jung and Spielrein encompasses clinical methods and politics, hysteria and anti-Semitism.

MAY 31 @ 1 PM: ONE LIFE

.

Based on the true story of British humanitarian Nicholas Winton, who helped groups of Jewish children in German-occupied Czechoslovakia to hide and flee in 1938–39, just before the beginning of WWII. Fifty years later, Nicky (Anthony Hopkins) is haunted by the fate of the children he wasn’t able to bring to safety in England. It’s not until the BBC show “That’s Life!” re-introduces him to some of those he helped rescue that he finally begins to come to terms with the guilt and grief he carried — all the while skyrocketing from anonymity to a national hero.
