The Salt of Life
"The movie’s sensuous appreciation of ripeness and abundance extends to food, clothing and foliage; the lushness of a city in bloom virtually bursts from the screen." (Stephen Holden, NY Times)
In his warm and witty follow-up to the 2010 hit Mid-August Lunch, writer/director/actor Gianni Di Gregorio has created another comedy, this time with a bittersweet edge. He plays a kind man contending with the demands of his wife, daughter, and aristocratic mother (Lunch’s great nonagenarian Valeria de Franciscis) who decides what he really wants is an extracurricular love life—with both hilarious and poignant results.
Gianni Di Gregorio. 2011. 90 m. NR. Italy, Italian. Zeitgeist Films.2:30 PM 5:00 PM
Friends with Kids
"The film’s revelation is Adam Scott, a second-banana comic best known for obnoxious squirts. Easing back on caricature but taking nothing off his fastball, he recalls the young Alan Alda, coming on glib and finishing vulnerable—much like this marvelous film." (David Edelstein, New York Magazine)
A poignant comedy from writer/director Jennifer Westfeldt (Ira and Abby, Kissing Jessica Stein) about the last two singles in a group of married friends who believe that kids and marriage don't mix, but kids and friendship do. Jon Hamm (AMC's Mad Men), Adam Scott (NBC's Parks and Recreation), Edward Burns (Newlyweds) and Bridesmaids’ stars, Chris O'Dowd, Maya Rudolph and Kristen Wiig, round out the ensemble cast.
Jennifer Westfeldt. 2011. 100 m. R. USA. Roadside Attractions .2:45 PM 5:10 PM 7:25 PM
David Hockney: A Bigger Picture
“An unqualified, life-enhancing joy from start to finish.” (Sunday Times, London)
After residing in California for more than 25 years David Hockney returned to England, trading in his sun-bleached palette for the rich hues of his native Yorkshire. Chatting about art with wit and passion, Hockney drives through the countryside in good weather and bad, stopping to set up his easel and create a series of stunning landscapes—including the largest painting ever executed outdoors.
Bruno Wollheim. 2009. 60 m. NR. UK. Coluga Pictures.7:15 PM
