Stealing more than $37,000 a day in her more than 20 years in office as the comptroller and treasurer of Dixon, a town in the heart of Illinois with a population of just 16,000, Rita Crundwell used the funds to build one of the nation’s leading quarter horse breeding empires, and threw lavish parties, all while forcing staff cuts, police budget slashing, and neglect of public infrastructure. In 2012, she was finally arrested as the largest municipal fraud perpetrator in American history. This new documentary is the riveting story of how a pillar of the community could so callously execute a scam of such magnitude. NR / 70 min.

In LADY BIRD, Greta Gerwig reveals herself to be a bold new cinematic voice with her directorial debut (she also wrote the screenplay), excavating both the humor and pathos in the turbulent bond between a mother and her teenage daughter. Christine "Lady Bird" McPherson (Saoirse Ronan) fights against but is exactly like her wildly loving, deeply opinionated, and strong-willed mom (Laurie Metcalf), a nurse working tirelessly to keep her family afloat after Lady Bird's father (Tracy Letts) loses his job. Set in Sacramento, California in 2002, amidst a rapidly shifting American economic landscape, LADY BIRD is an affecting look at the relationships that shape us, the beliefs that define us, and the unmatched beauty of a place called home. R / 94 min.
