Gone with the Wind
Janet Maslin and Molly Haskell present Gone with the Wind to celebrate our series of screenings and discussions about movies that grew from books. We’ll show Victor Fleming’s epic version of Margaret Mitchell’s epic novel in a glorious four-hour print—and we’ll serve lunch during the intermission. The screening includes a conversation with longtime film critics Molly Haskell and Janet Maslin.
Molly Haskell will sign copies of her latest work, Frankly, My Dear: Gone with the Wind Revisited. It’s “a slim, unfailingly intelligent, fact-filled book that sets out to explain why Gone With the Wind (both book and movie) exercises such a potent and enduring hold on our imagination” (New York Observer).
Victor Fleming. 1939. 238 m. G. US. Warner Bros.11:30 AM
Jason and the Argonauts
As if the storyline for Jason’s epic quest for the Golden Fleece weren’t exciting enough on its own, legendary special effects pioneer Ray Harryhausen embellished it with a series of fantastic stop-motion mythic monsters for the hero to conquer. And conquer he does. Who needs Luke Skywalker and his lightsaber when you’ve got Jason and his sword? A great time for the whole family.
Don Chaffey. 1963. 104 m. G. UK/US. Sony Pictures Entertainment.12:00 PM
"Few American actors over the past 35 years have flickered and smoldered with such craft and resilience." (New York Times)
Bad Blake (Jeff Bridges) is a hard-living, fading country star reduced to playing bowling alleys and hoping for complimentary drinks to get him through the night. Overshadowed by a former protégé (Colin Farrell), Blake eventually seeks redemption from a sympathetic and lovely young journalist (Maggie Gyllenhall).Crazy Heart features nuanced, understated performances by Farrell, Gyllenhall, and Robert Duvall—but the real story here is Jeff Bridges. In a career filled with “career performances,” Bridges manages to top himself. Oozing authenticity and gutter charm, Bridges sings and strums his way through a set of original songs and embodies this beat-up country sage with incredible ease. A remarkable turn, it’s no surprise Bridges has been nominated for the Academy Award (Best Actor), alongside fellow Academy Award nominee Maggie Gyllenhaal (Best Supporting Actress).
Scott Cooper. 2009. 111 m. R. US. Fox Searchlight.12:05 PM 2:30 PM 5:05 PM 7:25 PM
A Single Man
"The film belongs to Firth. Uncanny at showing the heart crumbling under George's elegant exterior, he gives the performance of his career." (Rolling Stone)
Famed fashion designer Tom Ford offers a stunning and stylish directorial debut with his elegant A Single Man. Colin Firth gives a mesmerizing performance (nominated for an Academy Award) as the college professor caught between sweet reverie and mournful reality, as he navigates a single day in 1962 Los Angeles. Julianne Moore is his best friend and Matthew Goode his former lover in this adaptation of the celebrated novel by Christopher Isherwood. With Ford's meticulous attention to detail and a luscious musical score, A Single Man is an exquisite aesthetic experience of deep emotional power.
Tom Ford. 2009. 99 m. NR. US. The Weinstein Company.2:15 PM 5:00 PM 7:10 PM
A Place Out of Time: The Bordentown School
Narrated by legendary actress Ruby Dee and directed by Dave Davidson, A Place Out of Time chronicles the birth, growth, and decline of the last all-black, publicly funded boarding school north of the Mason Dixon line. With an intimate, profound attention to the social and historical anatomy of the Bordentown School—from the backlash against post–Civil War Reconstruction to the Harlem Renaissance and the Civil Rights Movement—this critical, inspiring film recounts an educational experiment that succeeded in the face of institutionalized racism, limited resources, and political interference.
Q&A with panel guests, followed by a reception in honor of actress Ruby Dee.
Dave Davidson, Director, Coproducer
Presented in partnership with the Ossining Children's Center.
