Man of Iron
A masterful drama about the limitations of the press and the events leading to one of the most crucial events of the 20th century. Winner of the Palme d’Or at Cannes and nominated for an Academy Award, it captures the passion, tragedy, and anxiety of the tumultuous time around the formation of the Solidarity trade union and the rise of Lech Walesa.
Andrzej Wajda. 1981. 153 m. NR. Poland, Polish with subtitles. Milestone Films.
My Old Lady
"Mr. Kline's performance, in particular, infuses a story of father-son strife with emotional heat." (Stephen Holden, New York Times)
Mathias Gold (Kevin Kline) is a down-on-his-luck New Yorker who inherits a Parisian apartment from his estranged father. But when he arrives in France to sell the vast domicile, he's shocked to discover a live-in tenant, a fiesty Englishwoman Mathilde Girard (Maggie Smith) and her daughter (Kristin Scott Thomas) who are not prepared to budge.
Israel Horovitz. 2014. 107 m. PG-13. France/UK/USA. Cohen Media Group.3:00 PM 5:20 PM
The Skeleton Twins
“The Skeleton Twins is a well-written and acted movie about contemporary life that doesn’t strain for melodrama and is largely devoid of weepy soap opera theatrics." (Stephen Holden, NYTimes)
Craig Johnson. 2014. 93 m. R. USA. Roadside Attractions .3:05 PM 7:35 PM 9:40 PM
Kiss The Water
OPENING NIGHT! Sensual and haunting, the documentary Kiss the Water spins the simple life of Megan Boyd into a fairy tale. Living in isolation on the Scottish coast, Boyd tied flies—beautiful little works of art that drew salmon to the hook like no other. As word of her talent spread, she attained mythic status, and fishermen (even a prince, the Prince of Wales) appeared at her door. Seamlessly incorporating hand-painted animation, this enchanting film is an unforgettable evocation of Boyd’s passion and the mysterious Scottish landscape.
