Film LOVE & FRIENDSHIP 2016-07-24 17:00:00
Description

LOVE & FRIENDSHIP

Director: Whit Stillman; USA/Ireland, 2016, 92 minutes

99% ON ROTTEN TOMATOES!

The first time I saw Whit Stillman's Love & Friendship I fell head over heels. And like anything you love at first sight, you want to see it again. I can't think of a more wickedly modern romantic comedy, even though the film is based on Lady Susan, an unfinished epistolary novella that Jane Austen wrote in 1794 when she was about 20.

Whit Stillman is known for writing and directing his own elegantly witty films: Metropolitan, Barcelona, The Last Days of Disco. Happily, Austen and Stillman prove to be soulmates.

A sublime Kate Beckinsale digs into the role of her career as Lady Susan Vernon, a widow with impeccable taste and scheming ambitions. Lady Susan's ally in finding financial and sexual satisfaction is Alicia Johnson (Chloe Sevigny), the American wife of a wealthy Brit (a terrific Stephen Fry). The language, a lyrical blend of Austen and Stillman, is a kind of music, the kind that bewitches even as it stings. It’s pure pleasure and ONE OF THE BEST MOVIES OF THE YEAR. –Rolling Stone

Film SONG OF LAHORE 2016-07-25 19:10:00
Description

SONG OF LAHORE

Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy & Andy Schocken, Pakistan/USA, 2015, 82 min; English & Urdu with subtitles

This excellent documentary follows a group of Pakistani classical musicians who found themselves invited to perform at Lincoln Center.  They must travel to New York to gain some measure of the respect and acclaim their ancestors enjoyed as inheritors of a centuries-long tradition of artistic excellence. With the imposition of sharia law in the late 1970s, Pakistani orchestras were disbanded and musicians vilified, even killed. But when an amazing recording of Dave Brubeck’s “Take Five” on traditional Pakistani instruments goes viral, East meets West in improvisational harmony. A fascinating study in cross-cultural pollination, “Song of Lahore” positively sings. --Variety

“A JOYOUS AND RIVETING FILM. WILL HAVE AUDIENCES GRINNING FROM EAR TO EAR!” –The Wrap

Film AMELIE 2016-07-26 19:00:00
Description

FRENCH FAVOURITE!

AMELIE

Jean-Pierre Jeunet; France, 2001, 123 min; French with subtitles; 14A

This utterly beguiling fable is the charming tale of a French girl who helps strangers find love and happiness. A waitress in a Parisian café, Amélie (Audrey Tautou) sees it as her mission to right wrongs and improve the lives of her customers. But she proves rather less successful at bettering her own lot, despite falling for a handsome loner (Mathieu Kassovitz) with his own bizarre quest. ---BBCi

Film THE JUNGLE BOOK 2016-07-29 19:00:00
Description

THE JUNGLE BOOK

Director: Jon Favreau, USA, 2016, 106 minutes; PG – may frighten young children.   Voices of: Bill Murray, Idris Elba, Scarlett Johansson, Ben Kingley, Lupita Nyong’o, Christopher Walken

The new Disney version of Rudyard Kipling’s Jungle Book is what this factory does best. The film is a triumph of technology. It’s dazzling — almost no one will dislike it. The gimmick is that the movie uses a real actor, Neel Sethi as Mowgli, the boy raised by wolves. But Sethi is surrounded by brilliantly computer-animated wolves, panthers, tigers, and bears. At times, they look more real than the actor. The journey is thrillingly kinetic. –New York Magazine     “WOW. JUST, WOW.” –Arizona Republic

“VISUALLY STUNNING AND HIGHLY DRAMATIC!” –Globe and Mail

“Fills us with something rare in movies today - a sense of wonder.”Rolling Stone
