The Kid With a Bike
“A wholly gripping, emotionally acute work of humanistic cinema.” (Telegraph, London)
Belgian brothers Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne (Rosetta, L’Enfant) are acclaimed for their intense portrayals of people at the gritty fringes of society. They reveal a more hopeful face in this new drama about a sensitive but uncontrollable 11-year-old and a woman who believes in him. Winner of a raft of festival honors, including the Grand Jury Prize at Cannes and the European Film Award for best screenplay.
Jean-Pierre Dardenne/Luc Dardenne. 2011. 87 m. NR. France/Italy/Belgium, French with subtitles. IFC/Sundance Selects.2:00 PM 3:55 PM 5:50 PM 7:50 PM 9:50 PM
Salmon Fishing in the Yemen
“A very clever tale of modern ecoissues intertwined with old-style political intrigues and New Age romance.” (LA Times)
The latest from director Lasse Hallström (Chocolat, My Life as a Dog) and screenwriter Simon Beaufoy (Slumdog Millionaire) has been producing standing ovations at festivals. It’s a quick-witted comedy about a wealthy sheik who wants to bring sport fishing to his desert country—and he just may be able to pull it off, with the help of a beautiful consultant (Emily Blunt) and a stuffy but adorable scientist (Ewan McGregor).
Lasse Hallström. 2011. 112 m. PG-13. UK. CBS Films.2:25 PM 5:10 PM 7:30 PM

Life Without Principle
“A dark projection of what happens when the cash runs low in an already wild and desperate world.” (Toronto Film Festival)
The latest from Hong Kong veteran Johnnie To (Triad Election, Vengeance) this tense, darkly funny thriller is about three wildly different characters whose lives intersect over a bag of stolen money. Free of martial arts and heroic gunplay, Life Without Principle is an astute, sharply directed exploration of greed.
Johnnie To. 2011. 107 m. NR. Hong Kong, Cantonese. Indomina.10:00 PM
