A Master Builder

A Master Builder


"Jonathan Demme makes loving sport of the trust his actors have clearly placed in him, erecting for them a monument to the joys and terrors of walking an emotional high wire." (Slant Magazine)

Jonathan Demme’s brilliant A Master Builder was adapted from Ibsen's play by Andre Gregory and written by Wallace Shawn (My Dinner with AndreVanya on 42nd Street), who both also star in the film. Halvard Solness (Shawn), is a very successful architect, who exercises tight control over his wife, his employees, and his mistress. When Hilde (Lisa Joyce), a mysterious young woman comes to visit, the once dominating, controlling and narcissistic Solness finds himself apparently revived in every possible way.

Jonathan Demme. 2014. 110 m. NR. USA. Abramorama.

Calvary

Calvary


Father James (Brendan Gleeson) is a good priest who is faced with sinister and troubling circumstances.

Also starring: Kelly Reilly and Chris O'Dowd.

John Michael McDonagh. 2014. 100 m. R. Ireland/UK. Fox Searchlight.

The Trip to Italy

The Trip to Italy


"Coogan, Brydon and Winterbottom journey to the Mediterranean in this warmly enjoyable continuation of their improvised cultural and culinary adventures." (Scott Foundas, Variety)

In this witty follow-up to the 2010 film, The Trip, Michael Winterbottom reunites Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon (playing semi-fictionalized versions of themselves) for a new culinary road trip, this time a grand tour of Italy. Enjoy the idyllic Italian landscape, from Liguria to Capri, gastronomic treasures and the crackling chemistry between two of Britain's top comedians. The Trip to Italy is a biting portrait of modern-day masculinity that will make your mouth water. 

Michael Winterbottom. 2014. 108 m. R. UK. IFC Films.

Boyhood

Boyhood


"... [I]t's almost Joycean in its appreciation of the scruffy magic of everyday life." (Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly)


Filmed over 12 years, Richard Linklater's latest is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of Mason (a breakthrough performance by Ellar Coltrane). Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason's parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha, Boyhood is a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and impossible to watch without thinking about one's own journey through life.

Richard Linklater. 2014. 165 m. R. USA. IFC Films.

My Old Lady

My Old Lady


"Mr. Kline's performance, in particular, infuses a story of father-son strife with emotional heat." (Stephen Holden, New York Times)

Mathias Gold (Kevin Kline) is a down-on-his-luck New Yorker who inherits a Parisian apartment from his estranged father. But when he arrives in France to sell the vast domicile, he's shocked to discover a live-in tenant, a fiesty Englishwoman Mathilde Girard (Maggie Smith) and her daughter (Kristin Scott Thomas) who are not prepared to budge.

Israel Horovitz. 2014. 107 m. PG-13. France/UK/USA. Cohen Media Group.
