Chris and his girlfriend Rose go upstate to visit her parents for the weekend.

Seymour Krelborn is a nerdy orphan working at Mushnik's flower shop in urban Skid Row. He harbors a crush on fellow co-worker Audrey and is berated daily by Mr. Mushnik, until one day he finds a very mysterious unidentified plant.  The plant seems to have a craving for blood and soon begins to sing for his supper, forcing Seymour to do increasingly horrific things in order to keep the plant happy.  Frank Oz’s take on Alan Menken and Howard Ashman’s musical is a cult classic!

In 1979, James Baldwin wrote a letter to his literary agent describing his next project, "Remember This House." The book was to be a revolutionary, personal account of the lives and assassinations of three of his close friends: Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. At the time of Baldwin's death in 1987, he left behind only 30 completed pages of this manuscript. Filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished and creates an important visual essay on race in America.
