Wild

Wild


“...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.

Jean Marc Vallee. 2014. 115 m. R. USA. Fox Searchlight.

The Imitation Game

The Imitation Game


"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.

Morten Tyldum. 2014. 114 m. PG-13. UK/USA. The Weinstein Company.

Foxcatcher

Foxcatcher


"...[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: Filmmaker Bennett Miller and screenwriter Dan Futterman grew up in Mamaroneck and Larchmont. 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. 

 

Bennett Miller. 2014. 130 m. R. USA. Sony Pictures Classics.
