Film 007 "Skyfall" 007 2013-02-22 15:00:00




Director: Sam Mendes   UK/USA, 2012, 143 min;  PG   Cast: Daniel Craig, Judi Dench, Javier Bardem, Ralph Fiennes

"Skyfall" triumphantly reinvents 007 in one of the best Bonds ever made. This is a full-blooded, joyous, intelligent celebration of a beloved cultural icon, with Daniel Craig taking full possession of a role. The film at last provides a role worthy of Judi Dench, returning as M, who is one of the best actors of her generation. If you haven't seen a 007 for years, this is the time to jump back in. FOUR STARS!  Roger Ebert

Film Reel Spirituality: A Film Series 2013-02-22 14:30:00

Reel Spirituality: A Film Series

The films in this series explore questions of morality, culture, the search for meaning and other themes arising from the human journey.

About Schmidt 
(Alexander Payne, USA, 2002, 125 min.) Warren Schmidt (Jack Nicholson) has worked for an insurance company in Omaha, Nebraska, for his whole career. At a party celebrating his retirement, his best friend Ray characterizes him as a very rich man who has reaped the internal rewards of a meaningful life and a job well done. The sixty-six year old doesn't see it that way and sneaks out of his party for a drink at the bar alone. Writer and director Alexander Payne (Citizen Ruth, Election) has created an American masterpiece with this bittersweet portrait of a Midwesterner whose disappointments in life have made him into an angry man. This character's negative feelings about himself and the ways he has failed to live up to his youthful dreams are something many people will identify with. In dealing with his feelings towards his wife and family Warren comes to the honest realizations about the direction of his own life and what is of ultimate importance.

Screenings will be followed by a brief moderated discussion with CSRS Associate Fellow and Friends’ Chair Terence Marner.

Theatre PHOENIX THEATRE: Reasons to be Pretty @8pm 2013-02-22 20:00:00


Reasons to Be Pretty
By Neil LaBute

Directed by Christine Willes

Why do we care about being pretty when "Love is blind, sh#*!head. It is." Reasons to be Pretty takes us up close and personal with four friends and two relationships in this Tony Award-nominated, blue-collar, black comedy. A master of contemporary, realistic, in-your-face and four-letter-friendly dialogue, Neil LaBute mines the humour and painful truths that lay between self-image and self-esteem in our beauty-obsessed society.

"…Some of the freshest and most illuminating American dialogue to be heard anywhere these days.” New York Times
