Streaming Titles From 2012 & 2013 NHFF
With 20 years of films to reflect on, we decided to dive into our prior lineups to bring you two fantastic streaming options for this weekend. We wish you continued safety and we hope you enjoy the 2013 feature documentary film “Blackfish”, and the acclaimed 2012 independent feature film “Hello I Must Be Going”.
Hello I Must Be Going (2012) directed by Todd Louiso
Divorced and demoralized, Amy Minsky’s prospects look bleak when she is condemned to move back in with her parents at the age of 35. Everyone wants to help but, as her patience level with advice is plummeting, a bold 19-year-old boy enters her life, igniting her last bit of self-esteem. Melanie Lynskey delivers a phenomenal performance as Amy, bringing the struggles of adult life to an intimately relatable level. “Hello I Must Be Going” is a tender comedy-drama including great performances from it’s supporting cast (Blythe Danner, Christopher Abbott), as well as providing a career-making character study for Melanie Lynskey. “Hello I Must Be Going” is streaming for free on Hulu and Amazon, as well as for rent on both iTunes and Amazon for $3.99.
Blackfish (2013) directed by Gabriela Cowperthwaite
Notorious killer whale Tilikum is responsible for the deaths of three individuals, including a top killer whale trainer. “Blackfish” shows the oftentimes devastating consequences of keeping such intelligent and sentient creatures in captivity. Cowperthwaite’s documentary is sure to open your eyes a little wider and introduce you to some aspects of this industry that have gone hidden for too long. A striking and important documentary, “Blackfish” is available to stream on Netflix and Hulu, as well as for rent on Amazon and iTunes for $3.99.
With such a huge catalog of films to look back on, we’re happy to highlight some of the best for your viewing pleasure. Please enjoy this eye-opening documentary and endearing feature film from our 2013 and 2012 lineups.
