Beasts of the Southern Wild
"A stunning debut that finds its dandelion-haired heroine fighting rising tides and fantastic creatures in a mythic battle against modernity." (Peter Debruge, Variety)
4 Academy Award Nominations, including Best Picture, Best Director, Actress in a Leading Role
Winner of the Caméra d'Or award at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, Beasts of the Southern Wild was one of the most anticipated indie films of 2012. From first-time filmmaker Benh Zeitlin, the film tells the story of an extraordinarily imaginative six-year-old girl who when faced with unstoppable catastrophes of epic proportions must learn to survive on her own.
Benh Zeitlin. 2012. 91 m. PG-13. US. Fox Searchlight.2:25 PM 5:10 PM 7:20 PM 9:30 PM
To Rome with Love
"One of the most delightful things about To Rome With Love is how casually it blends the plausible and the surreal, and how unabashedly it revels in pure silliness." (A.O. Scott, NY Times)
With a sumptuously photographed Rome as the backdrop, this charming comedic omnibus starring Alec Baldwin, Roberto Benigni, Jesse Eisenberg, Ellen Page, and Penelope Cruz is sure to please.
Woody Allen. 2012. 102 m. R. US/Spain/Italy, English/Italian. Sony Pictures Classics.2:35 PM 5:00 PM 7:25 PM
A phenomenon in France, where it shattered box-office records to become the second most successful French film of all time, Intouchables tells the true story of the unlikely friendship between a quadriplegic aristocrat (François Cluzet) and his unconventional Senegalese caretaker from the projects (Omar Sy). Critics are applauding breakout star Omar Sy, who received the Cesar Award for Best Actor for his performance.
Olivier Nakache/Eric Toledano. 2012. 112 m. R. France, French. The Weinstein Company.2:40 PM 5:05 PM
Searching for Sugar Man
"Searching for Sugar Man is a winning musical detective story about a failed, forgotten early '70s rocker who became a huge success halfway across the world." (Dennis Harvey, Variety)
** Special Preview screening!** The greatest '70s rock icon that you've never heard of, Rodriguez's albums were critically well-received, but bombed on the U.S. charts. While he faded into obscurity in the States, his legend grew in South Africa, where a bootleg copy of his album made it to the airwaves and quickly became a phenomenal success. The film follows two of Rodriguez's biggest fans, who travel to the U.S. in hopes of finding out what happened to the singer who's anti-establishment message connected with them during the dark days of apartheid. Searching for Sugar Man is a story of hope, inspiration, and the resonating power of music.
