The Russian Five Red Carpet Charity Event

Fri., March 22, 6 p.m.

It took Michigan-based director and documentarian Joshua Riehl nearly six years to tell the harrowing behind-the-scenes journey of how Sergei Fedorov, Slava Fetisov, Vladimir Konstantinov, Slava Kozlov, and Igor Larionov escaped the clutches of the Iron Curtain to lead the Detroit Red Wings to back-to-back Stanley Cup victories in 1997-98. The Russian Five tells that story, and it’s kicking off its limited engagement return to theaters with a red carpet charity event with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the Vladimir Konstantinov Special Needs Trust. If the benefit event is a bit too swanky for your taste, The Russian Five is also playing in select theaters. $160

Visit any strip mall in the United States, and there’s bound to be a Vietnamese nail salon. But few Americans know the history behind the salons and the 20 Vietnamese refugee women who in 1975 sparked a multibillion-dollar industry that supports their community to this day. Weaving powerful personal stories with insightful interviews, “Nailed It!” captures an unforgettable and often hilarious saga charting the rise, struggle, stereotypes and steady hold Vietnamese Americans have on today’s multiethnic $8 billion dollar nail economy.

It takes a brazen personality to excel in the high-stress, hypercompetitive world of professional cooking — a male-dominated industry whose glass ceiling is famously impenetrable. But now with an influx of women at the helm of restaurants, and a younger generation unwilling to submit to the brutal conditions once considered the norm, the rules of “kitchen culture” as we know it are being rewritten. “The Heat” takes viewers behind the scenes to meet seven women chefs at the forefront of a revolution slowly reshaping the restaurant business, including stars such as Anne Sophie Pic, Angela Hartnett and Anita Lo. Unrated $10
