The Imitation Game

New Releases

"One of the year's finest films; I could happily watch The Imitation Game again." (Leonard Maltin)

During the winter of 1952, British authorities entered the home of mathematician, cryptanalyst, and war hero Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch) to investigate a reported burglary. They instead ended up arresting Turing himself on charges of 'gross indecency,' little did officials know, they were actually incriminating the pioneer of modern-day computing. An intense and haunting portrayal of a brilliant, complicated man, The Imitation Game follows a genius who, under nail-biting pressure, helped to shorten the war and, in turn, save thousands of lives.

Jan. 6, 7:15 Q&A Science on Screen event w/computer scientist and Turing Award recipient Leslie Valiant. His work has ranged over several areas of theoretical computer science, particularly complexity theory, learning, and parallel computation. He also has interests in computational neuroscience, evolution and artificial intelligence. Copies of his latest book, Probably Approximately Correct, will be available for purchase courtesy The Village Bookstore. 

Jan. 7, 7:15 Q&A screenwriter Graham Moore and JBFC Board President Janet Maslin.  A graduate of Columbia University, Moore is also the author of the New York Times best-seller The Sherlockian.

"...[A]n altogether extraordinary film about the psychopathology of the ties that bind..." (Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor)

A psychological drama directed by Bennett Miller and starring Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo, Vanessa Redgrave, and Sienna Miller. Based on actual events, the film tells the story of Olympic Gold Medal-winning wrestler Mark Schultz (Tatum), who sees a way out from the shadow of his more celebrated wrestling brother Dave (Ruffalo) when he is invited by eccentric multi-millionaire John du Pont (Carell) to move onto his estate and train. This gripping tale is sure to be an awards season favorite.

Local Element identifies filmmakers connected to Westchester,  provides a public showcase for new work, highlights emerging and established talent, and helps build a stronger community among area filmmakers.

A Most Violent Year

Special Events

"...Chandor’s absorbing no-bull NYC drama further clarifies what might be the most promising career in American movies: an urban-headed filmmaker attuned to economies of place and time, with an eye on the vacant throne of Sidney Lumet.." (Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York)

A Critical Favorite! Set during the winter of 1981 -- statistically one of the most crime-ridden in New York City's history -- A Most Violent Year follows the lives of an immigrant and his family as they attempt to capitalize on the American Dream, while the rampant violence, decay, and corruption of the day drag them in and threaten to destroy all they have built. This provocative film stars Jessica Chastain, Oscar Isaac, David Oyelowo (Selma), and Albert Brooks. 

Q&A filmmaker J.C. Chandor (Margin Call, All Is Lost) and JBFC Board President Janet Maslin

The Imitation Game

New Releases

"One of the year's finest films; I could happily watch The Imitation Game again." (Leonard Maltin)

During the winter of 1952, British authorities entered the home of mathematician, cryptanalyst, and war hero Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch) to investigate a reported burglary. They instead ended up arresting Turing himself on charges of 'gross indecency,' little did officials know, they were actually incriminating the pioneer of modern-day computing. An intense and haunting portrayal of a brilliant, complicated man, The Imitation Game follows a genius who, under nail-biting pressure, helped to shorten the war and, in turn, save thousands of lives.

Jan. 6, 7:15 Q&A Science on Screen event w/computer scientist and Turing Award recipient Leslie Valiant. His work has ranged over several areas of theoretical computer science, particularly complexity theory, learning, and parallel computation. He also has interests in computational neuroscience, evolution and artificial intelligence. Copies of his latest book, Probably Approximately Correct, will be available for purchase courtesy The Village Bookstore. 

Jan. 7, 7:15 Q&A screenwriter Graham Moore and JBFC Board President Janet Maslin.  A graduate of Columbia University, Moore is also the author of the New York Times best-seller The Sherlockian.
