A masterpiece from Turkish auteur Nuri Bilge Ceylan, the Palme d’Or winner at Cannes last year is a dense, Chekhovian drama about Aydin, a middle-aged hotel owner (a retired actor who fancies himself a man of learning and enlightenment), his considerably younger wife, his divorced sister, and several of his tenants – all of whom harbour resentments Aydin simply cannot comprehend.

"A richly engrossing and ravishingly beautiful magnum opus." – Justin Chang, Variety

“Intricate, monumental and mysterious. This is masterfully staged and performed.” – Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader

Like 50 Feet From Stardom this is the story of unsung heroes, the session musicians who made the 60s swing. Guaranteed, you will never hear pop from that era the same way again. Touching on everyone from the Beach Boys to Elvis, Sinatra to Sonny & Cher, this is an astonishing glimpse behind the scenes at the hey day of American pop. "Wonderful, touching and hilarious." — Elvis Costello

"A treasure trove of witness-at-creation anecdotes and enduringly potent ’60s pop classics, The Wrecking Crew is a well-nigh irresistible treat for aficionados of music from the era when acts like the Beach Boys, the Association and the Monkees were topping the charts. Pic celebrates a loose-knit group of largely unknown (except by industry insiders) session musicians, many of whom supplied the defining licks and backbeats — and in some cases, actually played instruments for band members — on legendary recordings." — Joe Leydon, Variety
