As the Tribeca Film Festival nears its end, it’s time to look
back on the slate of films looking for distribution. The New York-based
festival is a time for many filmmakers to present work they hope is worthy of a
larger audience, going beyond the festival circuit. This year proved to be no
different with several standouts -- and for us, there are five particular films
we hope everyone gets a chance to see in theaters.
TRIBECA: Courtney Love Gets Emotional, Talks Sex Tape at Premiere of Kurt Cobain Doc
A Ballerina’s Tale
Starring: Misty Copeland (pictured above)
This Kickstarter-funded documentary directed by journalist
Nelson George goes inside the world of Misty Copeland, a teen prodigy who has
been dubbed “the Jackie Robinson of classical ballet.” The film defines inspiration
as it looks hardships and injuries Copeland has faced as she fights to be
ranked among the American Ballet Theatre’s best.
Starring: Mickey Rourke, Nat Wolff, and Emma Roberts
