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.2:30 PM 5:00 PM 7:25 PM 9:50 PM
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.2:35 PM 5:05 PM 7:10 PM
The Queen of Versailles
Opulence and ignorance are centerstage in The Queen of Versailles, when a billionaire business man and his trophy wife, in the process of building their 90,000 sq.ft. home are hit by the financial crisis of 2008. Lauren Greenfield's documentary reveals a lifestyle of astounding excess and overweening entitlement in this terrific documentary that the NY Times says, "captures the tone of the times with a clear, surprisingly compassionate eye."
Lauren Greenfield. 2012. 100 m. PG. USA. Magnolia Pictures.2:40 PM 5:10 PM 9:15 PM
Johnny Cash: The Man, His World, His Music
This classic 1969 documentary captures the Man in Black fresh on the heels of his Folsom Prison album. He’s performing with his new bride June Carter Cash, singing a heartfelt duet with a gum-chewing Bob Dylan, and hanging out behind the scenes with friends, family, and aspiring young musicians. All the dark intensity and raw talent that made him a star is revealed in this fly-on-the-wall account.
Q&A 7:30: with WFUV Music Director Rita Houston
