"This unassuming but quietly winning comedy-drama delivers on the promise of its title." (David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter)
Tom McCarthy (The Visitor, The Station Agent) returns with this new comedic drama, one of the big audience hits of this year's Sundance Film Festival. The film follows Mike Flaherty (Paul Giamatti), an attorney and high school wrestling coach who takes on the guardianship of an elderly client in a last ditch effort to save his legal practice. What appears to be a win-win proposition for him and his client quickly reveals itself to be much more complicated than anticipated, when the client's teenage grandson shows up at his door in need of a guardian himself.
Thomas McCarthy. 2011. 106 m. R. US.2:30 PM 5:05 PM 7:25 PM 9:40 PM
The Double Hour
"The Double Hour is the best movie of its kind since the French director Guillaume Canet's hit from 2006, Tell No One." (Stephen Holden, NY Times)
Guido (Timi), a former cop, is a luckless single until he meets Slovenian immigrant Sonia (Rappoport), a chambermaid at a high-end hotel. Their passionate romance quickly takes a dark turn as Sonia's murky past resurfaces. The Double Hour was selected for the Venice, Toronto, Rome, London and Tokyo Film Festivals and was one of the five European Film Award Discovery nominees.
Giuseppe Capotondi. 2009. 95 m. Italy, Italian/Spanish.2:40 PM 5:30 PM 7:40 PM 9:45 PM
Bill Cunningham New York
"Obsessive artists often create exceptional bodies of work." (Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times)
The downtown smash hit, breaking the all-time Film Forum box office record! One week only!
“We all get dressed for Bill,” says Vogue editor Anna Wintour. The “Bill” in question is 80+ New York Times photographer Bill Cunningham. For decades, this Schwinn-riding cultural anthropologist has been obsessively and inventively chronicling fashion trends and high society charity soirées for the Times Style section in his columns “On the Street” and “Evening Hours.” Documenting uptown fixtures (Wintour, Tom Wolfe, Brooke Astor—who all appear in the film out of their love for Bill), downtown eccentrics and everyone in between, Cunningham’s enormous body of work is more reliable than any catwalk as an expression of time, place and individual flair. A delicate, funny and often poignant portrait of a dedicated artist whose only wealth is his own humanity and unassuming grace.
Richard Press. 2010. 84 m. NR. France/USA.2:45 PM 5:15 PM 7:15 PM 9:15 PM
