Film Schedule    

 

Starbuck

May 3-5

Friday 6 and 8 pm; Saturday 5 pm; Sunday noon, 2 pm, and 4 pm

 

"A great big French-Canadian hug of a movie-a farce with heart." Roger Moore, Movie Nation. Starbuck stars Patrick Huard as a 42-year-old lovable screw-up who finally decides to take control of his life. A habitual sperm donor in his youth, he discovers that he's the biological father of 533 children, 142 of whom are trying to force the fertility clinic to reveal the true identity of the prolific donor code-named Starbuck.

109 minutes; R for sexual content, language, and some drug material; French with English subtitles

 

 

Blancanieves

May 10-12

Friday 6 and 8 pm; Saturday 5 pm; Sunday noon, 2 pm, and 4 pm

 

"Spanish writer-director Pablo Berger's inventive Andalusian reworking of Snow White is a love letter to 1920s European silent film, liberally mixing humor and melodrama." David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter. A thrilling flamenco sound track and brilliant cinematography make this stunning film speak eloquently without uttering a word.

104 minutes; PG-13; Spanish with English subtitles

 

 

From Up on Poppy Hill

May 17-19

Friday 6 and 8 pm; Saturday 5 pm; Sunday no noon showtime, 2 pm, and 4 pm

 

"From Up on Poppy Hill is frankly stunning, as beautiful a hand-drawn animated feature as you are likely to see. It's a time-machine dream of a not-so-distant past, a sweet and honestly sentimental story that also represents a collaboration between the greatest of Japanese animators and his up-and-coming son." Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times. The setting is Yokohama in 1963, and the filmmakers lovingly bring to life the bustling seaside town, with its misty harbor, sun-drenched gardens, shops and markets, and some of the most mouthwatering Japanese home-cooking on film. The story centers on an innocent romance beginning to bud between Umi and Shun, two high school kids caught up in the changing times.

91 minutes; PG; Japanese with English subtitles

 

 

At Any Price

May 24-26

Friday 6 and 8 pm; Saturday 5 pm; Sunday noon, 2 pm, and 4 pm

 

"A great film. Ramin Bahrani [is] the best new American director of recent years . . . and Dennis Quaid gives one of the performances of a lifetime." Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times. A farming family's business is threatened by an unexpected crisis, further testing the relationship between a father and his rebellious son.

105 minutes; R for sexual content, including a strong graphic image, and for language

 

 

In the House

May 31-June 2

Friday 6 and 8 pm; Saturday 5 pm; Sunday noon, 2 pm, and 4 pm

 

"French director François Ozon's latest, based on Juan Mayorga's play The Boy in the Back Row, is a riveting examination of the serpentine nature of storytelling and of the frequently blurry lines dividing fact and fiction." David O'Connell, 20/20 Filmsight. A sixteen-year-old boy insinuates himself into the house of a fellow student from his literature class and writes about it in essays for his French teacher.

105 minutes; R; French with English subtitles

 

 

Love Is All You Need

June 7-9

Friday 6 and 8:15 pm; Saturday 5 pm; Sunday 11:45 am, 2 pm, and 4:15 pm

 

"While virtually everything that happens in this grown-up rom-com can be seen coming a mile off, Danish director Susanne Bier's assured touch and warm regard for her characters make the film both pleasurable and satisfying." David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter. Ida (Trine Dyrholm) travels alone to her daughter's wedding and immediately makes a bad first impression when she meets the groom's father, Philip (Pierce Brosnan). At the seaside villa where Philip once lived with his wife, conflicts arise, not least between the soon-to-be newlyweds. But first impressions fade, and Ida finds her chance for another life.

116 minutes; R for brief sexuality, nudity, and some language; Danish with English subtitles
