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.2:00 PM
My Neighbors the Yamadas
The messy, exhausting, and madcap nature of modern existence is captured by the innovatively offbeat animation of this unique little film. As if illustrated by the unseen narrator—a perceptive child next door—the hilariously eccentric Yamada family is depicted via a series of vignettes separated by thoughtful haikus. The family’s fantasies and frustrations come to life in an appealing rough, sketchy animation style that resembles crude comic strips more than the usual polished Studio Ghibli fare.
Isao Takahata. 1999. 104 m. PG. Japan, Japanese with subtitles. GKids.2:30 PM 5:05 PM 7:20 PM 9:35 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.2:35 PM 5:10 PM 7:15 PM 9:20 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.9:55 PM
