Plants spring to life beneath a roaming forest god’s hooves as they touch the ground. Thousands of glowing tree spirits look on with curious, morphing expressions from the treetops. Howling beasts covered in clouds of disease menace innocent peasants. Something epic is happening in the woods—a showdown between a destructive human army and the ancient guardians of the forest. This thrilling and frightening fantasy brought Miyazaki international acclaim.
Hayao Miyazaki. 1997. 134 m. PG-13. Japan, Japanese with subtitles. GKids.2:00 PM 4:45 PM 7:30 PM 10:15 PM
2 Days in New York
"The screenplay...has a jittery kind of honesty about it, which Rock and Delpy sometimes push to its limits." (Stephanie Zacharek, NPR)
This follow-up to 2 Days in Paris finds Marion (Julie Delpy) living in New York with her young son and new boyfriend, Mingus (Chris Rock). Marion's new life is chaotic, funny, and insightful, proving that filmmaker/ actress Delpy still has a knack for realistically portraying familial and cultural clashes on the big screen.
Julie Delpy. 2012. 91 m. R. France/Germany/Belgium, English/French/Italian. Magnolia Pictures.2:30 PM 5:00 PM 7:05 PM 9:10 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.2:45 PM 5:05 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)

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.
