During the Freedom Summer of 1964, hundreds of college students traveled to Mississippi to join the struggle for civil rights—eventually three activists would be murdered. At the same time, two smaller sets of friends, made up of musicians and record collectors, also headed South hoping to locate legendary blues musicians Skip James and Son House, neither of whom had recorded in decades. It was easy to mistake one group for the other.
Finally, on June 21, 1964, the TWO TRAINS RUNNIN' collided in memorable and tragic fashion.
The film was directed by Sam Pollard, narrated by Common, and features Gary Clark Jr., Buddy Guy, Jimbo Mathus, Alvin Youngblood Hart, Valerie June, Chris Thomas King, Jimbo Mathus, North Mississippi Allstars, and Lucinda Williams.
"A powerful meditation on the origins of an African-American musical genre and the painful reasons for its existence." — RogerEbert.com

Set in the glamour of 1950’s post-war London, Phantom Thread is the story of renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis, in his final performance) and his sister Cyril (Lesley Manville) are at the center of British fashion, dressing royalty, movie stars, heiresses, socialites, debutants and dames with the distinct style of The House of Woodcock. Women come and go through Woodcock’s life, providing the confirmed bachelor with inspiration and companionship, until he comes across a young, strong-willed woman, Alma (Vicky Krieps), who soon becomes a fixture in his life as his muse and lover.
Once controlled and planned, he finds his carefully tailored life disrupted by love.

After months have passed without a culprit in her daughter’s murder case, Mildred Hayes (Academy Award® winner Frances McDormand) makes a bold move, commissioning three signs leading into her town with a controversial message directed at William Willoughby (Academy Award® nominee Woody Harrelson), the town’s revered chief of police.
