Synopsis

For the uninitiated, Kumare is a wise guru from the East who indoctrinated a group of followers in the West. Kumare, however, is not real - he is the alter ego of American filmmaker Vikram Gandhi who inpersonated a spiritual leader for the sake of a social experiment designed to challenge one of the most widely accepted taboos: that only a tiny "1%" can connect the rest of the world to a higher power. Concealing his true identity from everyone he meets, Kumare forges profound and spiritual connections with people from all walks of life. At the same time, in the absurdity of living as an entirely different person, Vikram, the filmmaker, is forced to confront difficult questions about his own identity. At the height of his popularity, Kumare unveils his true identity to a core group of disciples who are knee-deep in personal transformation. Will they accept his final teaching? Can this illusion reveal a greater spiritual truth? Kumaré, at once playful and profound, is an insightful look at faith and belief.

Per Theater Chart: Woody Allen Feels the Love

June 26th, 2012

To Rome With Love topped the per theater chart with an outstanding average of $72,272 in five theaters. While this is an amazing start, there are some reasons to not get too excited. First of all, Moonrise Kingdom opened with more and did so in fewer theaters. Also, Sunday's estimates were a bit higher, so it fell faster than expected over the weekend. Finally, the reviews were split, so it likely won't have as strong legs as some of Woody Allen's films have in the past. The only other film to top the $10,000 mark on the per theater chart was Brave with an average of $15,928. Kumare came very close with $9,601 in one theater over the weekend, while it earned $19,972 from Wednesday through Sunday. More...

To Limited Releases With Love

June 22nd, 2012

There are quite a few interesting films on this week's list. Leading the way is To Rome With Love, which is earning the most buzz and will likely be the biggest hit, but its reviews are only mixed. On the other hand, The Invisible War is one of the most powerful films of the year, but might be too hard to stomach for a lot of people. Those looking for a more light-hearted documentary should check out Kumare. More...
