Editor’s Pick: GROWING UP SMITH

In 1979 an Indian family moves to America in hopes of living the American Dream. While their 10-year-old boy Smith falls head-over-heels for the girl next door, his desire to become a “good old boy” propels him further away from his family’s ideals.

LEVERAGE: Season 1

A highly skilled team forms to settle scores against those who use power and wealth to victimize others.

MARINA ABRAMOVIC: THE ARTIST IS PRESENT

Seductive, fearless, and outrageous, Marina Abramovic has been redefining what art is for nearly forty years. Using her own body as a vehicle, pushing herself beyond her physical and mental limits––and at times risking her life in the process––she creates performances that challenge, shock, and move us. Through her and with her, boundaries are crossed, consciousness expanded, and art as we know it is reborn. She is, quite simply, one of the most compelling artists of our time.

WHAT GOT YOU HERE CAN GET YOU THERE: A LIT Videobooks Exclusive

Based on the New York Times Bestseller. America’s most sought-after executive coach shows how to climb the last few rungs of the ladder. The corporate world is filled with executives, men and women who have worked hard for years to reach the upper levels of management. They’re intelligent, skilled, and even charismatic. But only a handful of them will ever reach the pinnacle — and as executive coach Marshall Goldsmith shows in this book, subtle nuances make all the difference. These are small ‘transactional flaws’ performed by one person against another (as simple as not saying thank you enough), which lead to negative perceptions that can hold any executive back.

THINKING IN BETS: A LIT Videobooks Exclusive

Poker champion turned business consultant Annie Duke teaches you how to get comfortable with uncertainty and make better decisions as a result.

SCOTTY AND THE SECRET HISTORY OF HOLLYWOOD

A deliciously scandalous portrait of Scotty Bowers, who after decades of discretion wrote a best-selling memoir detailing his secret life during Hollywood’s Golden Age as a legendary escort and sexual procurer to closeted gay celebrities.

TEENAGE

Teenagers didn’t always exist. They had to be invented. As the cultural landscape around the world was thrown into turmoil during the industrial revolution, and with a chasm erupting between adults and youth, the concept of a new generation took shape. Whether in America, England, or Germany, whether party-crazed Flappers or hip Swing Kids, zealous Nazi Youth or frenzied Sub-Debs, it didn’t matter – this was a new idea of youth. They were all “Teenagers.”

BIRDERS: THE CENTRAL PARK EFFECT

Birders: The Central Park Effect reveals the extraordinary array of wild birds who grace Manhattan’s celebrated patch of green, and the equally colorful New Yorkers who schedule their lives around the rhythms of migration. Author Jonathan Franzen, an idiosyncratic trombone technician, and a septuagenarian bird-tour leader are among the lively cast of characters in this charming, lyrical documentary that transports the viewer to the dazzling, hidden world of America’s most famous park.

THE KEEPING ROOM

In this reimagined Western set towards the end of the Civil War, Augusta encounters two renegade soldiers who are on a mission of pillage and violence. When the pair of soldiers track her down intent on revenge, the trio of women are forced to take up arms to fend off their assailants, finding ways to defend their home and themselves as the attacks become more unpredictable and relentless.

DAVE MADE A MAZE

Dave, a frustrated artist who has yet to accomplish anything significant in his career, builds a fort out of cardboard boxes in his living room, only to wind up trapped by the fantastical pitfalls and critters of his own creation. Ignoring his warnings, Dave’s girlfriend Annie leads a band of oddball explorers on a rescue mission. Upon entry, they find themselves in an ever-changing supernatural world, threatened by booby traps and pursued by a bloodthirsty Minotaur.

ANY DAY NOW

Winner of 10 Audience Awards at film festivals around the country and starring the amazing Alan Cumming, Any Day Now is a powerful tale of love, acceptance and family. When a teenager with Down syndrome (Isaac Leyva) is abandoned by his mother, a gay couple (Alan Cumming and Garret Dillahunt) takes him in and becomes the loving family he’s never had. But when their unconventional living arrangement is discovered by authorities, the men are forced to fight a biased legal system to save the life of the child they have come to love as their own.
