Robert De Niro’s highly acclaimed film festival comes back April 13 with 58 films in its lineup. Here are some of the most anticipated screenings to check out.

 

The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea

Game of Thrones favorite Maisie Williams stars alongside Jason Sudeikis and Jessica Biel as a teen determined to build a raft and sail across the Atlantic.

 

 

Bad Rap

This documentary follows the lives and careers of Dumfounded, Awkwafina, Rekstizzy and Lyricks, four Asian-American rappers trying to make it in the world of hip-hop.

 

 

High-Rise

Think of it as a vertical version of Snowpiercer. Ben Wheatley’s latest film stars Tom Hiddleston as a young doctor named Robert Laing, the new tenant of a high-rise apartment. Although initially seduced by the luxurious lifestyle, he is quickly embroiled in rising class tensions from the lower floors.

 

 

A Hologram for a King

This comic adaptation of Dave Eggers’ novel of the same name tells the story of an American businessman (Tom Hanks) trying to make a difficult sale to the King of Saudi Arabia.

 

Youth in Oregon

Billy Crudup and Frank Langella star in this dramedy about a man driving his father-in-law to Oregon to fulfill his request for euthanization.

 

 

Equals

Silas (Nicholas Hoult of Mad Max) is an illustrator living in a futuristic society that eradicated emotion for the sake of peace, only to be infected by new disease. His coworker (Kristen Stewart) is also infected, leading them to plot their escape together.

 

 

The Banksy Job

This documentary sounds more like a mystery caper than art world documentary. After the success of Exit Through The Gift Shop, notorious street artist Banksy has enthralled the world. Everyone but AK47, the self-described “art terrorist” who has made headlines for his rocky relationship with the Bristol artist.

 

 

Elvis & Nixon

If you like Frank Underwood, you’ll love Kevin Spacey as Richard Nixon. Making its world premiere at Tribeca, Michael Shannon plays Elvis Presley making a bizarre request to be sworn into the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs by the president himself.

What is CBD?

Quietly on the rise is the cousin of tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, known as cannabidiol, or CBD. THC is the more well-known component of cannabis; however, it is illegal in many states, so CBD has risen in popularity as a legal option. Stores selling CBD continue to pop up in major cities and towns.

Take Me to Tahiti

Mana is the life force Tahitians believe connects all things. Feel the mana for yourself on a visit to the islands of Tahiti, and sample some of these activities as you connect with the breathtaking nature of the South Pacific. Fly Air France from the United States to Tahiti in the most convenient and comfortable way and let your holiday start on board.

Best Destinations to Visit with Young Kids

Picking a destination is perhaps the most important part of planning a trip with your family. If your group includes small children, there are some destinations better suited to your needs than others. Consider these spots for your next trip with the little ones.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
