A Separation

New Releases

"A thrilling domestic drama that offers acute insights into human motivations and behavior" (Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times)

Academy Award Winner: Best Foreign Language Film
Winner of the Golden Globe for Best Foreign Language film, A Separation, from writer-director Asghar Farhadi, is easily the most critically acclaimed drama of the year, a riveting tale of a troubled marriage caught in the gears of everyday life in modern day Tehran.

The Salt of Life

New Releases

"The movie’s sensuous appreciation of ripeness and abundance extends to food, clothing and foliage; the lushness of a city in bloom virtually bursts from the screen." (Stephen Holden, NY Times)

In his warm and witty follow-up to the 2010 hit Mid-August Lunch, writer/director/actor Gianni Di Gregorio has created another comedy, this time with a bittersweet edge. He plays a kind man contending with the demands of his wife, daughter, and aristocratic mother (Lunch’s great nonagenarian Valeria de Franciscis) who decides what he really wants is an extracurricular love life—with both hilarious and poignant results.

Gianni Di Gregorio. 2011. 90 m. NR. Italy, Italian. Zeitgeist Films.

2:30 PM 5:00 PM


Friends with Kids

New Releases

"The film’s revelation is Adam Scott, a second-banana comic best known for obnoxious squirts. Easing back on caricature but taking nothing off his fastball, he recalls the young Alan Alda, coming on glib and finishing vulnerable—much like this marvelous film." (David Edelstein, New York Magazine)

A poignant comedy from writer/director Jennifer Westfeldt (Ira and Abby, Kissing Jessica Stein) about the last two singles in a group of married friends who believe that kids and marriage don't mix, but kids and friendship do. Jon Hamm (AMC's Mad Men), Adam Scott (NBC's Parks and Recreation),  Edward Burns (Newlyweds) and Bridesmaids’ stars, Chris O'Dowd, Maya Rudolph and Kristen Wiig, round out the ensemble cast.

David Hockney: A Bigger Picture

FrameWorks: Art on Film 2012

“An unqualified, life-enhancing joy from start to finish.” (Sunday Times, London)

After residing in California for more than 25 years David Hockney returned to England, trading in his sun-bleached palette for the rich hues of his native Yorkshire. Chatting about art with wit and passion, Hockney drives through the countryside in good weather and bad, stopping to set up his easel and create a series of stunning landscapes—including the largest painting ever executed outdoors.

Q&A filmmaker Bruno Wollheim (David Hockney: Double Portrait) was given exclusive access to film Hockney as he painted the Yorkshire series, on view through April 9 at the Royal Academy in London. FrameWorks curator Kathryn Bonomi will interview.

RECEPTION & EXHIBITION Join us upstairs in the Jane Peck Gallery for light refreshments and an exhibition of the work of local artist Alex Masket. Masket’s work, noted for its bold use of color and unconventional media, will be on view before and after FrameWorks events. Breaking Boundaries, a short documentary about Masket, will also be shown in the gallery.

Bruno Wollheim. 2009. 60 m. NR. UK. Coluga Pictures.
