Tribeca Film Festival: 5 triumphant movies

The 11th annual Tribeca Film Festival came to a close on April 29 after 11 days and 149 films. Here are five you'll be hearing a lot more about

Searching for Sugar Man

A sensation at Sundance, this documentary unravels the extraordinary mystery of an American folksinger, Rodriguez, rumored to have killed himself on stage in the ’60s.

Your Sister’s Keeper

The League’s Mark Duplass plays a man in mourning who turns to his best pal (Emily Blunt) and her half sister (Rosemarie DeWitt) for help. Complications ensue — but not the ones you’d expect.

Don’t Stop Believin’: Everyman’s Journey

This impassioned story follows Arnel Pineda, a member of a Filipino Journey cover band who was tapped to be the real band’s lead singer.

Side by Side

Keanu Reeves interviewed many directors for this doc about the battle between traditional film and digital cameras. Worth watching, if just to see Reeves and David Lynch in the same room.

War Watch

Kim Nguyen’s harrowing drama about a teenage girl recruited to be a child soldier in Africa took home the festival’s top prize.
