With their woodland home being paved over and transformed into roads and cheap housing developments, a clan of magical tanuki (mischievous shape-shifting raccoons) transform themselves into all sorts of specters to scare off the human invaders. The animation style seamlessly changing with every form the tanuki take, this honest appraisal of environmental concerns and rousing comedy-adventure is unlike any children’s movie ever made.
Isao Takahata. 1994. 119 m. PG. Japan, Japanese with subtitles. GKids.2:25 PM 5:00 PM 7:30 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.2:30 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.2:40 PM 5:05 PM 7:15 PM 9:25 PM
