“Campion’s wild vitality makes this movie romantic in every possible sense of the word.” (NY Times)
Directed by Jane Campion, the Academy Award–winning writer and director of The Piano, Bright Star was a hit at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. A film of exquisite poetry, both literary and visual, it’s the true story of the 19th-century love affair between 23-year-old English poet John Keats, and Fanny Brawn, the girl next door. Starring Ben Whishaw and Abbie Cornish, Bright Star has been called "one of the most deeply moving romantic films in memory” (LA Times).

Coco Before Chanel
"Spectacle, a love triangle, heritage settings, bravura acting, witty dialogue, a bittersweet finale: There's something for everyone in Anne Fontaine's Coco Before Chanel." (Hollywood Reporter)
Audrey Tautou (Amélie) plays Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel in this intelligent, carefully crafted biopic of her early life, from her childhood in a French orphanage to the love triangle that set her career in motion. Director and co-writer Anne Fontaine brings wit, style, and restraint to match Tautou's layered performance as the penniless young girl who came to embody the modern woman.
Anne Fontaine. 2009. 105 m. PG-13. France, French with subtitles. Sony Pictures Classics.5:05 PM 7:25 PM
Capitalism: A Love Story
"Capitalism: A Love Story is a searing outcry against the excesses of a cutthroat time." (Entertainment Weekly)
Academy Award–winning director Michael Moore (Bowling for Columbine, Fahrenheit 911, Sicko) is back. This time he’s using his provocative approach to examine the global economic meltdown and what he has described as “the biggest robbery in the history of this country”—the massive transfer of US taxpayer money to private financial institutions. “It will be the perfect date movie,” he says. “It’s got it all—lust, passion, romance, and 14,000 jobs being eliminated every day.” Opening nationally on Oct. 2—a year and a day after the Senate voted to approve the $700 billion bailout—it’s sure to generate more than its share of controversy.
