A Late Quartet
"Centered around four outstanding performances, Yaron Zilberman's fiction-feature debut feels like the work of a filmmaker who knows and appreciates the art form under scrutiny, laying a credible foundation for a story that lays bare the often melodramatic passions of the artistic soul." (Justin Chang, Variety)
When the beloved cellist of a world-renowned string quartet receives a life changing diagnosis, the group's future suddenly hangs in the balance. Inspired by and structured around Beethoven's Opus 131 String Quartet in C-sharp minor, the film pays homage to chamber music and the cultural world of New York and stars Philip Seymour Hoffman, Catherine Keener and Christopher Walken.
Yaron Zilberman. 2012. 105 m. R. US. Entertainment One.12:15 PM 2:40 PM 5:05 PM 7:20 PM 9:35 PM
"Don't expect to look at a catwalk in quite the same fashion again." (Daily News)
A wrenching but deeply humane portrait of a dark, little-known corner of the modeling world. Complex, conflicted former model Ashley Arbaugh serves as a "talent scout," locating barely pubescent Russian girls and sending them to Japan in an arrangement that more closely resembles human trafficking than anything else. Nadya, the 13-year-old Siberian girl who is the focus of Arbaugh's efforts, stands in for thousands of other girls seeking fame, fortune, and a better life- and finding something far different.
David Redmon/Ashley Sabin. 2011. 78 m. NR. France/Japan/Russia/USA. First Run Features.2:45 PM
"The achievement of this simply told, exceptionally fine film is the clarity with which it portrays the drama of a good soul in an inert body." (Ty Burr, Boston Globe)

"For anyone eager to understand Russia's depressing 20-year slide from one version of cynical totalitarianism into another...Putin's Kiss is required viewing." (Salon)
Putin’s Kiss portrays life in Russia through the story of Masha, a magnetic, patriotic teenager who soars to the top of Nashi, a pro-government youth organization. When she gets to know a group of liberal journalists, her eyes are opened—and this courageous young woman confronts chilling possibilities she’d never dreamed of. Winner of a cinematography award at Sundance, the film beautifully conveys the evolution of Masha’s political consciousness.
Lise Birk Pedersen. 2012. 82 m. NR. Denmark/Russia, Russian. Kino Lorber Films.5:15 PM 9:30 PM
Love Free or Die
"A thoughtful reflection of the divisiveness of homosexuality in organized religion." (Hollywood Reporter)
When the Episcopal Church elevated Gene Robinson to Bishop of the Diocese of New Hampshire in 2003- the first gay person to attain such a rank in the history of Christendom- he wore a bulletproof vest to his consecration, and he has lived with death threats ever since. This award-winning portrait evokes a brave man in love with both God and his partner, a hero to many around the world, whose church has led the way to real institutional change.
Macky Alston. 2012. 82 m. NR. USA. Wolfe Releasing.7:30 PM
