Desperate to help her ailing brother, a young woman agrees to compete in a deadly game of Would You Rather, hosted by a sadistic aristocrat…
WOULD YOU RATHER, now on HBO, is a psychological thriller that explores economic inequality, the potential consequences of Social Darwinism, and power games. The film has been compared by critics to a less controversial version of Pasolini’s SALO, or a current reality version of HUNGER GAMES. Other critics have described the movie as a “financial morality play with spirit and wit” — one that is “guaranteed to rile up even the most jaded viewer,” while presenting a “portrait of human nature as it is faced with a cold reality of choice and survival.”
“A bloody rare turn at classic murder mystery…”

GO FAR is a documentary about the life of Christopher Rush, an amazingly inspirational human being who was born with muscular dystrophy (http://mda.org/disease/sma1.html). Rather than give up, he defied every expectation and lived a life full of happiness, optimism, and endless accomplishments that most able-bodied people would be proud of. Despite having been diagnosed with a life expectancy of two years, he lived until shortly before his 31st birthday.
During his last few months Chris developed an inspirational program called GO FAR (Goals, Obstacles, Focus, Act, Review) that he planned to teach to others who were disabled, troubled youth, and anyone else who needed encouragement and a better path to reaching their goals, regardless of the obstacles. This documentary will serve as his legacy, a message of enduring optimism and hope.
GO FAR is available for instant streaming on www.GoFarMovie.com through YEKRA.
