My Neighbor Totoro
The giant, furry title character in this sweet movie doesn’t ever speak. He just turns up unexpectedly in the lives of two sisters who are adapting to a new home in rural Japan. And he brings a little magic—along with elusive soot sprites and a grinning cat bus—with him wherever he goes. A gentle classic about the mysteries of nature and discoveries of childhood.
Hayao Miyazaki. 1988. 86 m. G. Japan, dubbed in English. GKids.12:00 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.12:05 PM 2:30 PM 5:10 PM 7:20 PM 9:30 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.12:10 PM 2:40 PM 5:00 PM 7:10 PM 9:20 PM
My Neighbor Totoro
The giant, grinning, furry title character doesn’t sing cute songs or dance around—he never even speaks. He turns up unexpectedly in the lives of two sisters adapting to a new home in rural Japan, lazily going about his business. He and everything around him—elusive soot sprites, a scampering grinning cat bus, tiny Totoros—are enchanting emblems for all the wonderful mysteries of nature and discoveries of childhood. Miyazaki has said, “Totoro is where my consciousness begins.”
This film is also available dubbed in English during our Movies For Kids (and their Families) series this summer!
