Wild Tales

Wild Tales


"Deserves to become a serious art-house hit in the U.S. thanks to its skill in deftly overcoming the form’s usual deficits, for a result that feels as amazingly cohesive as it is relentlessly clever and entertaining." (Godfrey Cheshire, RogerEbert.com)

Academy Award Nominee for Best Foreign Language Film. Six wickedly funny stories about ordinary people pushed over the thin line that divides civilization and barbarism. 

Damián Szifrón. 2015. 122 m. R. Spain/Argentina, Spanish with subtitles. Sony Pictures Classics.

La Sapienza

La Sapienza


"The movie is an unapologetically rarefied undertaking and at the same time a gracious and inviting film. And it embodies an elegant and melancholy paradox: What looks like tourism is really the pursuit of truth and beauty, and vice versa." (A.O. Scott, NY Times)

La Sapienza echoes Rossellini's Viaggio in Italia in its tale of Alexandre Schmidt (Fabrizio Rongione), a brilliant architect who, plagued by doubts and loss of inspiration, embarks on a quest of artistic and spiritual renewal guided by his study of Borromini. His wife Aliénor (Christelle Prot), similarly troubled by the crassness of contemporary society, decides to accompany him. In Stresa, a chance encounter upends the couple's plans with a series of life-altering revelations.

Eugčne Green. 2015. 100 m. NR. France/Italy, French/Italian with subtitles. Kino Lorber Films.

3 Hearts

3 Hearts


“A touching, impeccably controlled drama.” (Manohla Dargis, New York Times)

One night in provincial France, Marc (Benoît Poelvoorde) meets Sylvie (Charlotte Gainsbourg) after missing his train back to Paris. Instantly drawn to one another, they wander through the streets until morning. But when Sylvie reunites with her ex and leaves France, Marc falls in love and marries. What neither knows is that Marc’s new bride is Sylvie’s sister. Upon Sylvie’s return to France, the spark between her and Marc is reignited in ways that will forever alter the relationships between sister to sister and husband to wife. 

Benoit Jacquot. 2014. 106 m. PG-13. France, French. Cohen Media Group.

Seymour: An Introduction

Seymour: An Introduction


"In his calm defense of beauty, craftsmanship, intellectual curiosity and emotional connection as vital human needs, this is one artist who knows he doesn't have to raise his voice to speak volumes.: (Justin Chang, Variety)

Ethan Hawke's gentle, meditative film is a love letter to the study of music and the patience, concentration, and devotion that are fundamental to the practice of art. The film allows us to spend time with a generous human being who has found balance and harmony through his love of music.

Ethan Hawke. 2015. 84 m. PG. USA. IFC Films.

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel


Now that the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel for the Elderly and Beautiful has only a single remaining vacancy, Sonny (Dev Patel) must figure out how to accommodate guests (including Richard Gere) as they arrive. His own imminent wedding and the blossom- ing relationships all around also raise a host of questions—and perhaps the only one who may know the answers is the new co-manager of the hotel, Muriel (Maggie Smith), the keeper of everyone's secrets.

John Madden. 2015. 122 m. PG. UK/USA. Fox Searchlight.

While We're Young

While We're Young


Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts are achingly funny as a childless New York City couple who gravitate toward
a pair of disarming younger hipsters (Adam Driver and Amanda Seyfried) when their own friends start becoming parents. This sharp comedy is the latest from writer/director Noah Baumbach
(Frances Ha, Greenberg), who again finds a way to make us laugh about the agony of growing up.

Noah Baumbach. 2015. 94 m. NR. USA. A24 Films.

Effie Gray

Effie Gray


"It spins the narrative of one of the Victorian art world's most mysterious marriages into a study of life lived and life merely examined, a fecund fairy tale in reverse." (Matt Brennan, Slant Magazine)

In her original screenplay Effie Gray, Emma Thompson takes a bold look at the real life story of the Effie Gray-John Ruskin marriage, while courageously exposing what was truly hiding behind the veil of their public life. Set in a time when neither divorce, nor gay marriage were an option, the film explores the roots of sexual intolerance, while shedding light on the marital politics of the Victorian Era.

Richard Laxton. 2015. 108 m. PG-13. UK. Adopt Films.
