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 on charges of 'gross indecency,' unwittingly incriminating the pioneer of modern-day computing. An intense and haunting portrayal of a brilliant and complicated man.

Jan. 6, 7:15 Q&A Science on Screen event w/computer scientist and Turing Award recipient Leslie Valiant, MacArthur Fellow Craig Gentry, a research scientist in the Cryptography Research Group at the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center and 
Glen Whitney, the co-executive director of the National Museum of Mathematics (MoMath) will moderate.

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

“...Vallée has taken a contemplative book where, frankly, very little happens and transformed it into a gut-punching drama.." (Tina Jordan, Entertainment Weekly)


With the dissolution of her marriage and the death of her mother, Cheryl Strayed makes the rash decision to hike more than a thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail alone. Wild powerfully captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddens, strengthens, and ultimately heals her.

"...[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.

A Most Violent Year

"...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

"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 on charges of 'gross indecency,' unwittingly incriminating the pioneer of modern-day computing. An intense and haunting portrayal of a brilliant and complicated man.

Jan. 6, 7:15 Q&A Science on Screen event w/computer scientist and Turing Award recipient Leslie Valiant, MacArthur Fellow Craig Gentry, a research scientist in the Cryptography Research Group at the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center and 
Glen Whitney, the co-executive director of the National Museum of Mathematics (MoMath) will moderate.

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

Pump

Special Events

Today, oil-based fuel is our only option at the pump, and our reliance on it has drained our wallets, increased air pollution, and sent Americans to war in faraway lands. How did we get to this point? Narrated by Jason Bateman, Pump is an inspiring, eye-opening documentary about America’s addiction to oil, from its corporate conspiracy beginnings to today’s monopoly. And it clearly explains how we can finally have a choice at the pump.

Q&A producer Yossie Hollander, cofounder of the Fuel Freedom Foundation

Sidewalk Stories

Local Element: Works from Westchester

“With a wild spontaneity that can morph from riveting to fun to tense and alien in the space of a half-block, Sidewalk Stories is as emblematic a New York film as there is.” (Slant)

Winner of the Prix du Public at Cannes, where the 12-minute ovation broke a record, Sidewalk Stories is a moving and funny homage to Chaplin’s The Kid. This gorgeous black-and-white film is an important work of the New African-American cinema of the 1980s, along with Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing and John Singleton’s Boyz N the Hood. It’s finally been restored and is now back to its former beauty. 2k digital restoration.

Q&A filmmaker Charles Lane and JBFC Faculty Sean Weiner. Dobbs Ferry resident Charles Lane attended Purchase College, where his short A Place in Time won a Student Academy Award. Lane later earned a Rockefeller Foundation Grant, NAACP Award and mulitple festival honors for Sidewalk Stories.

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.

Althea

We Got Game: Sports on Film

“Althea’s self-confidence came through loud and clear. She took no prisoners.” (Billie Jean King)

Opening Night! Althea Gibson was a sharecropper’s daughter and a truant from the rough streets of Harlem who emerged in the 1950s as a most unlikely queen of the highly segregated tennis world. Bringing a fierce athleticism to the game, she was the first African-American to play— and win—at Wimbledon and Forest Hills, a decade before Arthur Ashe. This long-awaited documentary also reveals Gibson’s important role off the court.

Q&A Mayor David Dinkins, New York Times sportswriter/author William C. Rhoden, and JBFC Board Chair Hugh B. Price. Join us for a RECEPTION at the Media Arts Lab after the screening. Copies of Rhoden's book, 40 Million Dollar Slaves will be available for purchase courtesy of The Village Bookstore.

Why Don't You Play in Hell?

After Dark

"From sudden zooms and abrupt freeze frames to lengthy tracking shots, slow-motion, and CG-enhanced fantasy interludes, Why Don't You Play In Hell? boasts an aesthetic insanity to match its uninhibited narrative." (Nick Schager, AV Club)


Sion Sono
(Love Exposure, Cold Fish) combines his trademark excess and outrageous- ness with his passion for old 35 mm films in his latest feature, his 31st. The plot involves a group of wannabe filmmakers and a yakuza boss who wants his daughter to be a movie star—and it’s endlessly irreverent and wildly over the top.
