She Stoops to Conquer
Hardcastle, a man of substance, looks forward to acquainting his daughter with his old pal’s son with a view to marriage. But thanks to playboy Lumpkin, he’s mistaken by his prospective son-in-law Marlow for an innkeeper, his daughter for the local barmaid. The good news is, while Marlow can barely speak to a woman of quality he’s a charmer with those of a different stamp. And so, as Hardcastle’s indignation intensifies, Miss
One of the great, generous-hearted and ingenious comedies of the English language, Goldsmith’s She Stoops to Conquer offers a celebration of chaos, courtship and the dysfunctional family.

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.

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.5:00 PM 7:30 PM
Journey of the Universe
Yale University’s Mary Evelyn Tucker and John Grim have created this stunning new film about the deep mysteries of the universe and the interconnectedness that confronts us at the edge of science, often to researchers’ surprise. It dazzled us when we first played it back in October as part of our Focus on Nature series—and it sparked a vibrant conversation with the audience about the role of spirituality as science confronts a cosmos that often works more like an organism than a machine. We’ve decided to reprise the evening with Tucker and Grim, this time inviting area clergy to view the film as well, so they can contribute their perspective to the postscreening discussion. Please join us for a wide-ranging program about biology, physics, theology, mythology, consciousness, and spirituality.
Focus on Nature is presented in partnership with Scenic Hudson and Teatown Lake Reservation and made possible through generous support from the Hoch family and the van Hengel Family Fund.
Patsy Northcutt and David Kennard. 2011. 60 m. NR. . N/A.7:15 PM
