A Christmas Story
All young Ralphie wants for Christmas is a Red Ryder BB gun—but how to convince his parents that it's an appropriate gift? This warm-hearted, nostalgic comedy (based on a novel by humorist Jean Shepherd, who also worked on the script) has become a perennial holiday classic for good reason. It's a gift worth opening again and again.
Bob Clark. 1983. 94 m. PG. US. Warner Bros.12:00 PM
"If you love movies, Hitchcock is hard to resist. It paints an evocative picture of Hollywood and the methodology of filmmaking, circa 1960, while offering juicy roles to Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren, two of the finest actors on the planet." (Leonard Maltin)
1 Academy Award Nomination for Makeup and Hairstyling
Sacha Gervasi's (Anvil! The Story of Anvil) biopic of the legendary director portrays the gentler side of a man mostly associated with intrigue, suspense, and thrills. The making of Hitchcock's seminal movie, Psycho, serves as the backdrop to the film's main focus—the love story of Alfred Hitchcock (Anthony Hopkins) and his wife and partner, Alma Reville (Helen Mirren).
Sacha Gervasi. 2012. 98 m. PG-13. US. Fox Searchlight.12:30 PM 2:40 PM 5:00 PM 7:10 PM
"...Knightley embodies Anna as a girlish woman who has never felt erotic love; once smitten, she is raised to heavenly ecstasy before tumbling into the abyss of shame. It’s a nervy performance, acutely attuned to the volcanic changes a naive creature must enjoy and endure on her first leap into mad passion. She helps make Anna Karenina an operatic romance worth singing about." (Richard Corliss, Time)
4 Academy Award Nominations, including Costume Design, Cinematography, and Music.
Tom Stoppard's adaptation of the classic Leo Tolstoy novel of love and tragedy is "intelligently ecstatic" (Time). Directed by Joe Wright (Pride & Prejudice, Atonement), Anna Karenina marks the third time the acclaimed director has worked with Keira Knightley, whose performance in the title role is already generating Oscar buzz.
Joe Wright. 2012. 130 m. R. UK. Focus Features.1:00 PM 4:20 PM 7:00 PM
"Pinto's performance leaves us not just stirred but thoroughly shaken." (Elle)
Taking on Thomas Hardy for the third time in his unpredictable career, Michael Winterbottom (Jude, The Trip) transposes Tess of the D'Urbervilles to modern India's destitute countrysides and bustling cities. Freida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire) stars as the beautiful, naive Trishna, who falls under the spell of a charming businessman who lures her away from her innocent life.
Michael Winterbottom. 2011. 117 m. R. UK. IFC Films.2:15 PM
Damsels in Distress
"Innocence deserted teen movies ages ago, but it makes a comeback, revived and romanticized, in this joyous anachronism." (Time)
Since his 1990 debut, Metropolitan, writer-director Stillman has explored the "urban haute bourgeoisie" with clear-eyed, amused sympathy. In Damsels in Distress, which features rising star Greta Gerwig (To Rome with Love), he explores life at a small college with "grace, wit, and humor." (The New Yorker).
Whit Stillman. 2011. 99 m. PG-13. US. Sony Pictures Classics.5:05 PM 7:55 PM
