In the Name of My Daughter"The true story of a late-seventies murder case, which is well-known in France, is a ready-made classic melodrama." (Richard Brody, New Yorker)
A gripping thriller starring Catherine Deneuve as a mother who will not rest until her daughter's killer is put behind bars.
André Téchiné. 2015. 116 m. R. France, French with subtitles. Cohen Media Group.12:00 PM 2:20 PM 5:10 PM 7:40 PM 10:00 PM
The Apu Trilogy: Pather Panchali
“[The Apu Trilogy] swept the top prizes at Cannes, Venice and London, and created a new cinema for India – whose prolific film industry had traditionally stayed within the narrow confines of swashbuckling musical romances. Never before had one man had such a decisive impact on the films of his culture... ” (Roger Ebert)
Satyajit Ray’s debut, Pather Panchali, in a style inspired by Italian neorealism, introduces us to both little Apu and the women who will help shape him. With resplendent photography informed by its young protagonist’s perpetual sense of discovery, Pather Panchali is an immersive cinematic experience and a film of elemental power.
The Apu Trilogy follows a free-spirited child in rural Bengal who matures into an adolescent urban student and finally a sensitive man of the world. Two decades after its original negatives were burned in a fire, Satyajit Ray’s breathtaking milestone of world cinema rises from the ashes in a meticulously reconstructed new 4K restoration.
Satyajit Ray. 1955. 125 m. NR. India, Bengali with subtitles. Janus Films.12:05 PM 7:15 PM
Far from the Madding Crowd
Based on the literary classic by Thomas Hardy, Far From the Madding Crowd is the story of Bathsheba Everdene (Carey Mulligan), who attracts three very different suitors: Gabriel Oak (Matthias Schoenaerts), a sheep farmer, captivated by her fetching willfulness; Frank Troy (Tom Sturridge), a handsome and reckless Sergeant; and William Boldwood (Michael Sheen), a prosperous and mature bachelor. This timeless story of Bathsheba's choices and passions explores the nature of relationships and love - as well as the human ability to overcome hardships through resilience and perseverance.
Thomas Vinterberg. 2015. 119 m. PG-13. . Fox Searchlight.12:10 PM 2:35 PM 5:00 PM 7:30 PM 10:05 PM
Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem
In this powerhouse courtroom drama, an Israeli woman seeking to finalize a divorce from her estranged husband finds herself effectively put on trial by the country’s religious marriage laws. Exposing the inequality and dysfunction enshrined by the archaic practice of the gett, and with a powerful performance by codirector Ronit Elkabetz (The Band’s Visit, The Flood), this was the official Israeli submission for this year’s Oscars.
Ronit Elkabetz/ Shlomi Elkabetz. 2014. 115 m. NR. France/Germany/Israel, Arabic/French/Hebrew with subtitles. Music Box Films.12:15 PM 2:40 PM 8:30 PM
I'll See You in My Dreams
"It's hopeful and realistic in equal measure, and it's anchored by a quietly resplendent performance from Danner, who brings a feather duster touch to everything she does." (Stephanie Zacharek, Village Voice)
In this vibrant, funny, and heartfelt film, a widow and former songstress (Blythe Danner) discovers that life can begin anew at any age. With the support of her three loyal girlfriends (June Squibb, Rhea Perlman, and Mary Kay Place), Carol decides to embrace the world, embarking on an unlikely friendship with her pool maintenance man (Martin Starr), pursuing a new love interest (Sam Elliott), and reconnecting with her daughter (Malin Akerman).
Brett Haley. 2015. 92 m. PG-13. USA. Bleecker Street.12:20 PM 2:45 PM 5:20 PM 6:00 PM 7:50 PM 9:55 PM
The Apu Trilogy: Aparajito
“IF THESE AREN’T THE MOST BEAUTIFUL MOVIES EVER MADE, THEY’RE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL ONES I KNOW. The beauty of this restoration may be enough to move you to tears.” (Stephanie Zacharek, The Village Voice)
Aparajito picks up where the first film (Pather Panchali) leaves off, with Apu and his family having moved away from the country to live in the bustling holy city of Varanasi. As Apu progresses from wide-eyed child to intellectually curious teenager, we witness his academic and moral education, as well as the growing complexity of his relationship with his mother. This tenderly expressive, often heart-wrenching film, which won three top prizes at the Venice Film Festival, including the Golden Lion, not only extends but also spiritually deepens the tale of Apu.
Satyajit Ray. 1956. 109 m. NR. India, Bengali with subtitles. Janus Films.2:30 PM
The Apu Trilogy: Apur Sansar
“The most important revival of the year! Go to worship the near-religious restoration and lose yourself in three very different masterpieces.” (David Edelstein, New York Magazine) By the time Apur Sansar was released, Satyajit Ray had directed not only the first two Apu films but also the masterpiece The Music Room, and was well on his way to becoming a legend. This extraordinary final chapter brings our protagonist’s journey full circle. Apu is now in his early twenties, out of college, and hoping to live as a writer. Alongside his professional ambitions, the film charts his romantic awakening. Featuring soon-to-be Ray regulars Soumitra Chatterjee and Sharmila Tagore in star-making performances, and demonstrating Ray’s ever-more-impressive skills as a crafter of pure cinematic imagery, Apur Sansar is a breathtaking conclusion to this monumental trilogy.

What We Do in the Shadows"I'm so sick of vampires I'd have pounded a stake into my own heart not to have to watch this, but it turns out to be a pitch-perfect spoof of MTV's The Real World and a sly satire on millennial slackerdom." (J.R. Jones, Chicago Reader)
The adventures of four vampire roommates trying to get by in a modern world that's not always hospitable to the undead. Clement and Waititi, creators of the HBO hit series "Flight of the Conchords," co-wrote, co-directed, and co-star in this hilarious send-up in which an endearingly unhip quartet of friends reveal to us or, rather, to the documentary crew that's filming them, the details of their daily–make that nightly–routine.
Taika Waititi/Jemaine Clement. 2015. 86 m. NR. New Zealand/USA, English/German with subtitles. Paladin.9:45 PM
