Included In This Bundle

  • Boston

    From $11.99
    Narrated by Academy Award® winner Matt Damon, the film chronicles the story of the iconic Boston Marathon--from its humble origins with only 15 runners to the present day. In addition to highlighting the event as the oldest annually contested marathon in the world, the film showcases many of the most important moments in more than a century of the race's history. Among these monumental moments are the tragic events of 2013 and the preparations for and eventual running of the 118th Boston Marathon one year later, when runners and community gathered together once again for what would be the most meaningful race of all.
  • Pavarotti

    From $14.99
    From Academy Award®-winning* director Ron Howard comes this wonderfully intimate portrait of Luciano Pavarotti, the most beloved opera singer of all time. Interweaving Pavarotti's genre-defining performances with revealing, never-before-seen footage, PAVAROTTI is a movie experience as singularly entertaining as its legendary subject. (*2001, Best Director, A BEAUTIFUL MIND)
  • The Hunting Ground

    From $7.99
    From the makers of The Invisible War comes a startling expose of sexual assault crimes on U.S. college campuses, their institutional cover-ups and the devastating toll they take on students and their families. Weaving together verite footage and first person testimonies, the film follows the lives of several undergraduate assault survivors as they attempt to pursue - despite incredible push back, harassment and traumatic aftermath - both their education and justice.
  • Citizenfour

    From $11.99
    2014's Academy Award® winning documentary CITIZENFOUR is a real life international thriller that unfolds by the minute. With unprecedented access, this gripping behind-the-scenes chronicle follows award winning director Laura Poitras (My Country, My Country) and journalist Glenn Greenwald's remarkable encounters with whistle-blower Edward Snowden in a hotel room in Hong Kong, as he hands over classified documents that provide evidence of mass indiscriminate and illegal invasions of privacy by the National Security Agency (NSA). The documentary not only shows the dangers of governmental surveillance, but makes audiences feel them. After seeing the film, viewers will never think the same way about their phone, e-mail, credit cards, web browser or digital footprint again.
  • Fed Up (2014)

    From $11.99
    Narrated by Katie Couric, Fed Up blows the lid off everything we thought we knew about food and exercise, revealing a 30-year campaign by the food industry—aided by the U.S. government—to mislead and confuse the American public. Exposing the hidden truths contributing to one of the largest health epidemics in history, the film follows a group of families battling to lead healthier lives—and reveals why the conventional wisdom of “exercise and eat right” is not ringing true for millions of people struggling with diabetes, childhood obesity and other serious conditions. Including captivating interviews with the country's leading experts, this vital information could change the way we eat forever.
