LITTLE MEN (USA 2016; PG)
Tuesday September 20, Thursday September 22, Saturday September 24 @ 7:30PM; Saturday September 25 @ 1, 2:50PM.
Direction: Ira Sachs; screenplay: Ira Sachs, Mauricio Zacharias
Teenage temperamental opposites Jake (Theo Taplitz) and Tony (Michael Barbieri) strike up a friendship when Jake’s father (Greg Kinnear) inherits the apartment building that includes Tony’s mother’s dress shop. Unfortunately he also becomes her landlord, and it’s been much too long since the rent was raised… “The performances are impeccable. Sachs is a master of expressive understatement, and that applies both to the young actors playing the boys – there’s not a false moment from either of them – and to the adults” – Hollywood Reporter. “The remarkable, magical thing about this film is that, at 85 minutes, it’s so whole. With its fully-formed people and changing places, Little Men is a film a viewer can live in, and think about while they’re there” – Screen International. “Funny, touching and vital. It’s truly an exhilarating gift”- Rolling Stone.
85 minutes.

Direction: Anne Fontaine; screenplay: Alice Vial, Anne Fontaine, Pascal Bonitzer, Philippe Maynial, Sabrina B. Karine
In the first winter following the end of World War II, a young French doctor (Lou de Laage, Breathe) with a Red Cross field hospital near Warsaw learns of a shocking human tragedy – several nuns at a local convent are far along in pregnancy, the aftermath of rampaging Red Army soldiers. “Fontaine and cinematographer Caroline Champetier create many subdued and unexpected moments of simple humanity, or of what a more generous Catholic than the Mother Superior might call grace” – Salon.com. “It proves, yet again, that though moral and spiritual questions may not sound spellbinding they often provide the most absorbing movie experiences” – LA Times. “A powerful, brave film that will stay with you for days”- Globe and Mail (Toronto).
115 minutes. Subtitles.

HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE (New Zealand 2016; PG-13)
Tuesday October 4, Thursday October 6, Saturday October 8 @ 7:30PM; Sunday October 9 @ 1, 3:05PM
Direction and screenplay: Takia Waititi
Adolescent street kid Ricky (Julian Dennison) gets the biggest break of his life when he’s placed with new foster parents in the New Zealand countryside. But when a combination of circumstances forces him to flee into the forest with his foster father (Sam Neill), he becomes the inadvertent focus of a national manhunt that is as funny as it is overblown. “Defies its convention through grounded characters, witty dialogue, compassionate filmmaking and inventive storytelling… Consistently clever and even moving”- RogerEbert.com . “One of the most sincere and funny portraits of family life to come along in a while”- Village Voice . “Long story short: Hunt for the Wilderpeople is a terrific movie and you should do whatever you can to see it”- Arizona Republic. Audience Award winner at the Boston Independent Film Festival, the San Francisco International Film Festival, and the Edinburgh International Film Festival .
101 minutes.

LO AND BEHOLD: REVERIES OF THE CONNECTED WORLD (USA 2016; NR)
Tuesday October 11, Thursday October 13, Saturday October 15 @ 7:30PM; Sunday October 16@ 1, 3:05PM.
Direction: Werner Herzog
Another mind-blowing documentary from one of the world’s master directors. Werner Herzog ponders the import and meaning of the internet, which has radically transformed the modern world – for both better and worse – in an instant of historical time. “An elegant survey of the origins of the information revolution and a shrewd analysis of how the internet has reshaped the world. It’s one of the director’s best docs” – Philadelphia Inquirer. “The virtual future may be now, but LO AND BEHOLD, with its stimulating volley of insights and ideas, always feels persistently, defiantly human” – Variety. “A modestly profound and consistently fascinating musing”- Screen International.
98 minutes.

TRAIN TO BUSAN (South Korea 2016; NR)
Tuesday October 25, Thursday October 27, Saturday October 29 @ 7:30PM; Sunday October 30 @ 1, 3:25PM
Direction and screenplay: Sang-Ho Yeon
Coming for Halloween, something you don’t see every day – a zombie film with subtitles and a political subtext! A self-centered hedge fund manager and his little daughter are swept up in national chaos aboard the last train to the port city of Busan, the final bastion of human survival against what is officially described as a lethal pandemic of “rabies.” “Yeon eschews gore for thrilling set pieces: his fleet, imaginative action scenes recall Brad Bird’s crisp transition to real people in peril when he made his “Mission Impossible” movie” – LA Times. “Pulses with relentless locomotive momentum. As an allegory of class rebellion and moral polarization, it proves just as biting as Snowpiercer, while delivering even more unpretentious fun” – Variety. “The story moves as fast as that bullet train, careening from one impossible predicament to the next while the characters jostle to survive”- Miami Herald. “A public-transportation horror movie with a side helping of class warfare”- NY Times. 118 minutes. Subtitles.

as-i-open-my-eyes-poster

AS I OPEN MY EYES (Tunisia 2016; NR)
Tuesday November 1, Friday November 4, Saturday November 5 @7:30PM; Sunday November 6 @ 1, 3:05PM. NOTE: No show Thursday November 3. Friday substitutes.
Direction: Layla Bouzid; screenplay: Layla Bouzid and Marie-Sophie Chambon
Rebellious Tunisian teenager Farah (Baya Medhaffer) samples love, resists her parents’ career plans for her, and sings protest songs in a political rock band, as the currents of revolution stir around her. The excitement of risk-taking seems remote from the dangers, but Farah’s mother Heyet knows better… “Sharply yet subtly capturing the atmosphere of fear fostered by the dictatorship of President Ben Ali, this skillfully made drama is especially attuned to the myriad forms of surveillance, from the prurient to the political”- Variety. “This debut feature earns its grown-up wisdom without selling out its youthful idealism”- Village Voice.
102 minutes. Subtitles.

The Measure of a Man poster.png

THE MEASURE OF A MAN (France 2016; NR)
Tuesday November 8, Thursday November 10, Saturday November 12 @ 7:30PM; Sunday November 13 @1, 2:50PM.
Direction: Stephane Brize; screenplay: Olivier Gorce, Stephane Brize
Vincent Lindon is superb as a middle-aged family man who takes a new job as a store detective after 20 months of unemployment. Though the paychecks are welcome, the work poses unfamiliar and disorienting ethical challenges he must resolve on his own. “Brize makes compelling drama out of the most ordinary of circumstances, and draws a lead performance from frequent collaborator Vincent Lindon that is a veritable master class in understated humanism” – Variety. “[Brize’s] modest but moving new film is a welcome reminder that – for someone who can’t afford to put food on the table or provide a proper education for their child – business is always personal”- indieWIRE. “Compassionate, engrossing from start to finish, and utterly relevant”- Time Out London. Best Actor Award, Cannes Film Festival.
91 minutes. Subtitles.
