Michael Urie’s Thank You For Judging features the best of the best high-school students as they come to be judged at the mother of all Speech and Debate competitions, the Texas Forensic Association’s State Competition. Actor and forensics veteran Michael Urie’s award winning documentary captures the stories and enthusiasm of speech competitions familiar to students across the country.
These kids compete by playing all the characters from a madcap stage play, interpret aloud the autobiography of a ninety year old, speak from the heart about labels and stereotypes, or argue the rights and wrongs of the latest in politics in the process. They will tug at your heartstrings and tickle your funny bone as they learn not only about public speaking, but also confidence, adult relations, and self-presentation both in appearance and eloquence.
Thank You For Judging is a DigiNext exclusive only in Digiplex Theaters April 18 – 24 and stars Michael Urie, Sean Fornara and Travis Flourney.

“What Makes You Different Makes You Dangerous”
Set in a dystopian world, this gripping action-adventure film takes place in a society that is divided by the government into five distinct factions based on how people live their lives. People are organized by their innate skills and primary virtues: Amity (peaceful); Candor (honest); Dauntless (brave); Abnegation (selfless) and Erudite (intelligent).
Shaillene Woodley plays 16-year-old Tris Prior, who does not fit into any one of the five groups and is labeled Divergent. Since Tris is different from most people in the city and has strengths in more than one area, she is thought to be dangerous to those in power.

Based on the popular book series by Veronica Roth, Divergent stars Shailene Woodley with an eclectic cast including Theo James, Miles Teller, Ben Lamb, Zoe Kravitz, Ashley Judd, Tony Goldwyn and Kate Winslet.
