  • Menashe

    7:45pm

    Menashe
    • Starring: Menashe Lustig, Meyer Schwartz, Ruben Niborsk
    • Director: Joshua Z. Weinstein
    • Language(s): English, Yiddish
    • Genre(s): Drama
    • Rating: PG
    • Running Time: 82 min.
    "Funny, heartbreaking, impeccably observed, and nearly flawless drama. "
    - Peter Keough, Boston Globe
    "The result is an act of partial, tenderly observed guerrilla filmmaking. It works; it takes you somewhere, quietly but evocatively, and it’s affecting without pulling at your heartstrings with both hands. "
    - Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
    "Menashe is a warm, relatable and tender tale about parental love, religion and belonging, told humanely and with vivid authenticity. "
    - Claudia Puig, TheWrap
    "Menashe Lustig brings warmth and a lumpen charisma to Menashe’s lead role, giving life to a film based in part on his own experiences. "
    - Noel Murray, The A.V. Club
    "Joshua Z. Weinstein’s charming Menashe immerses us in an authentic environment of ultra-Orthodox Judaism and makes it relatable by weaving a sweet story familiar in its general contours, of a single father struggling to hold on to the son he loves. "
    - David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter
    "With a deep understanding of the connective power of cinema, Weinstein manages to present this little Hasidic community upon relatable grounds by giving us Menashe, a resonant human being full of relatable pains in the face of a lifestyle kept secret. "
    - tKyle Kohner, The Playlist
    "Striking throughout are the seemingly caught-on-the-wing moments that subtly enrichen the film’s characterizations. "
    - Kenji Fujishima, Slant Magazine
    "Menashe works as both a rare introduction to a way of life largely unseen (or exaggerated by those outside of it) as well as a touching depiction of fighting for what’s most important in life. "
    - Jordan Raup, The Film Stage
    "The subtle on-screen chemistry between father and son gives this sweet and poignant drama a solid emotional base. "
    - Bruce Demara, Toronto Star
  • Professor Marston & the Wonder Women

    5:30pm

    Professor Marston & the Wonder Women
    • Starring: Luke Evans, Rebecca Hall, Bella Heathcote
    • Director: Angela Robinson
    • Genre(s): Biography
    • Rating: R
    • Running Time: 108 min.
    "[Professor] Marston [& the Wonder Women] is simply a love letter to the amazing people who inhabit it. "
    - Jada Yuan, New York Magazine/Vulture
    "Professor Marston & the Wonder Women is the true, stranger-than-fiction story of how the world-famous superheroine came into being. "
    - Deborah Young, Hollywood Reporter
    "Hall, a terrific actress, completely captures the impatience and outrage of a superior woman kept constantly in a second-class position, all raw nerves and sharp edges. "
    - Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
    "Robinson’s film strips away the superhero flash and cuts deep into the social psyche of the creation of Wonder Woman by a controversial man who worked out his relationship issues by creating the iconic comic book character. "
    - Dino-Ray Ramos, Deadline
    "In the end, it’s a nice tribute not only to one of the comics’ greatest characters (and this year’s favorite movie hero) but the sort of truly unhindered, uncensored imagination that makes all fiction possible — and all love real. "
    - Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
    "Evans, Hall, and Heathcote exhibit major chemistry (in every permutation) possible, but they also don’t wink at the storyline, playing a provocative story totally straight. It’s hard to ignore the power of a story that can package unorthodox concepts in such readymade trappings. "
    - Kate Erbland, indieWire
    "Angela Robinson, who wrote and directed the film, has managed to take what could have been a tawdry or salacious look into Wonder Woman’s naughty roots and give her real-life characters – and their genuine love for each other – the same amount of respect that any vanilla, monogamous heterosexual historical figure would receive. "
    - Consequence of Sound
  • Victoria and Abdul

    5:00pm, 7:15pm

    Victoria and Abdul
    • Starring: Judi Dench, Ali Fazal, Adeel Akhtar, Eddie Izzard
    • Director: Stephen Frears
    • Genre(s): Biography, Drama, History
    • Rating: PG-13
    • Running Time: 112 min.
    "Judi Dench can do no wrong, and playing Queen Victoria for the second time in the richly satisfying Victoria and Abdul is an acting lesson par excellence that proves how rapturous it is to watch this great artist do everything right. "
    - Rex Reed, The New York Observer
    "Start to finish, it’s a bloody delightful romp. "
    - Roger Moore, Movie Nation
    "A film of solid craftsmanship led by another royally magnificent performance by Judi Dench. "
    - Peter Howell, Toronto Star
    "It’s up to historians to assess how accurate this funny, charming film is to the details of Queen Victoria’s last years, but its use of poetic license is impeccable. "
    - Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
    "The story told in Victoria and Abdul is so far-fetched that it really helps to know that it is, in its broad outlines, true. "
    - Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
    "This funny, touching adap of Shrabani Basu’s 2010 biography has its own chemistry, withering wit and unsentimental message of acceptance. A royal treat. "
    - Jamie Graham, Total Film
    "Frears hasn’t just made an historical recreation; he has made a movie containing a message with universal implications for all places and times when racism rears its head. "
    - James Berardinelli, ReelViews
    "The two leads are superb. And the idea that two people — separated by class, a creed, a continent and half a century - could still share such a perfect bond of innocent friendship seems like an awfully important one. "
    - Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
    "The sizable constituency that turns out for glossy period drama of this kind will embrace the sumptuously appointed Victoria & Abdul as a moving account of an isolated old woman finding joy and lightness in her final years. "
    - David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter

Resilience: The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope
Researchers have recently discovered a dangerous biological syndrome caused by abuse and neglect during childhood. As the new documentary Resilience reveals, toxic stress can trigger hormones that wreak havoc on the brains and bodies of children, putting them at a greater risk for disease, homelessness, prison time, and early death. While the broader impacts of poverty worsen the risk, no segment of society is immune. Resilience, however, also chronicles the dawn of a movement that is determined to fight back. Trailblazers in pediatrics, education, and social welfare are using cutting-edge science and field-tested therapies to protect children from the insidious effects of toxic stress—and the dark legacy of a childhood that no child would choose.

Red River (1948)

starts November 5

Essential Western Films
This new quarterly series showcases the “essential” films everyone should see on the big screen. For each month-long program, we’ll screen five films organized by one of the following themes: directors, actors, genres, and eras/movements.
Essential tickets are $9 for Adults, $8 for Students/Seniors and Members get in Free!

Red River (1948) is a classic and complex western (and considered by many critics to be one of the ten best westerns ever made). It is a sweeping, epic story about a cattle drive (historically based on the opening of the Chisholm Trail in 1867) and a film of rivalry and rebellion, spanning a time period of fifteen years. Red River was Howard Hawks’ first western, a story often compared to its parallel epic on the high seas, Mutiny on the Bounty (1935). [Filmsite.org]

Summary: Dunson leads a cattle drive, the culmination of over 14 years of work, to its destination in Missouri. But his tyrannical behavior along the way causes a mutiny, led by his adopted son.

The Kid (1921)

starts November 10

These FREE screenings are part of MOXIE FLIX, a monthly series focusing on essential films for kids to see before they turn 13.

Film Synopsis: Charlie Chaplin was already an international star when he decided to break out of the short-film format and make his first full-length feature. The Kid doesn’t merely show Chaplin at a turning point, when he proved that he was a serious film director—it remains an expressive masterwork of silent cinema. In it, he stars as his lovable Tramp character, this time raising an orphan (a remarkable young Jackie Coogan) he has rescued from the streets. Chaplin and Coogan make a miraculous pair in this nimble marriage of sentiment and slapstick, a film that is, as its opening title card states, “a picture with a smile—and perhaps, a tear.” [Criterion]

Jane

starts November 10

Jane is the story of how Jane Goodall became Jane Goodall – using footage shot by future husband Hugo van Lawick of her first experiences in Gombe, Tanzinia in the 1960’s. Previously thought to be lost forever, the footage was only recently discovered in a storage unit, and has been now masterfully intercut with interviews of present day Jane Goodall to provide an in-depth portrait of her life. With an enchanting score by Phillip Glass, JANE is a captivating and immersive look into how one woman can change the world through passion, dedication, and perseverance.

Lurking at the margins of his idyllic suburban existence is Martin (Barry Keoghan), a fatherless teen who Steven has covertly taken under his wing. As Martin begins insinuating himself into the family’s life in ever-more unsettling displays, the full scope of his intent becomes menacingly clear when he confronts Steven with a long-forgotten transgression that will shatter the Murphy family’s domestic bliss.

High Noon (1952)

starts November 13

Essential Western Films
This new quarterly series showcases the “essential” films everyone should see on the big screen. For each month-long program, we’ll screen five films organized by one of the following themes: directors, actors, genres, and eras/movements.
Essential tickets are $9 for Adults, $8 for Students/Seniors and Members get in Free!

High Noon (1952) is possibly the all-time best Western film ever made - a successful box-office production by Stanley Kramer and director Fred Zinnemann (who also directed From Here to Eternity (1953) and A Man For All Seasons (1966)). The Western genre was employed to tell an uncharacteristic social problem tale about civic responsibility, without much of the typical frontier violence, panoramic landscapes, or tribes of marauding Indians.

Summary: In this classic western, a marshal prepares to retire from law enforcement because of his marriage to a Quaker. But upon learning that four outlaws will converge on the town at noon to kill him, he is torn between his sense of duty and his love for his pacifist bride.

A Fistful of Dollars (1964)

starts November 19

Essential Western Films
This new quarterly series showcases the “essential” films everyone should see on the big screen. For each month-long program, we’ll screen five films organized by one of the following themes: directors, actors, genres, and eras/movements.
Essential tickets are $9 for Adults, $8 for Students/Seniors and Members get in Free!

By the time Sergio Leone made this film, Italians had already produced about 20 films ironically labelled “spaghetti westerns.” Leone approached the genre with great love and humor. Although the plot was admittedly borrowed from Akira Kurosawa’s Yojimbo (1961), Leone managed to create a work of his own that would serve as a model for many films to come. Clint Eastwood plays a cynical gunfighter who comes to a small border town and offers his services to two rivaling gangs. Neither gang is aware of his double play, and each thinks it is using him, but the stranger will outwit them both. The picture was the first installment in a cycle commonly known as the “Dollars” trilogy. Later, United Artists, who distributed it in the U.S., coined another term for it: the “Man With No Name” trilogy. While not as impressive as its follow-ups For a Few Dollars More (1965) and The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly (1966), A Fistful of Dollars contains all of Leone’s eventual trademarks: taciturn characters, precise framing, extreme close-ups, and the haunting music of Ennio Morricone. Not released in the U.S. until 1967 due to copyright problems, the film was decisive in both Clint Eastwood’s career and the recognition of the Italian western. ~ Yuri German, Rovi

Summary: A wandering gunfighter plays two rival families against each other in a town torn apart by greed, pride, and revenge.

Lady Bird

starts November 22

Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson (Saoirse Ronan) fights against but is exactly like her wildly loving, deeply opinionated and strong-willed mom (Laurie Metcalf), a nurse working tirelessly to keep her family afloat after Lady Bird’s father (Tracy Letts) loses his job. Set in Sacramento, California in 2002, amidst a rapidly shifting American economic landscape, Lady Bird is an affecting look at the relationships that shape us, the beliefs that define us, and the unmatched beauty of a place called home. [A24]

The Wild Bunch (1969)

starts November 26

Essential Western Films This new quarterly series showcases the “essential” films everyone should see on the big screen. For each month-long program, we’ll screen five films organized by one of the following themes: directors, actors, genres, and eras/movements.
Essential tickets are $9 for Adults, $8 for Students/Seniors and Members get in Free!

The Wild Bunch (1969) is director/co-writer Sam Peckinpah’s provocative, brilliant yet controversial Western, shocking for its graphic and elevated portrayal of violence and savagely-explicit carnage, yet hailed for its truly realistic and reinterpreted vision of the dying West in the early 20th century. Peckinpah had earlier directed another classic western about the West’s passing, Ride the High Country (1962) and the epic western film Major Dundee (1965). Many of the film’s major stars, including William Holden, Edmond O’Brien, Robert Ryan and Ben Johnson, were veterans of westerns with a more romantic view of the West in the 40s and 50s. This hard-edged, landmark masterpiece of the Western film genre was beautifully shot in wide-screen by cinematographer Lucien Ballard.

Summary: An aging group of outlaws look for one last big score as the “traditional” American West is disappearing around them.

Unforgiven (1992) is producer/director/star Clint Eastwood’s own tribute to his legendary legacy in Sergio Leone’s low-budget ‘spaghetti’ westerns, and a return to his most successful film genre - after seven years (following his Pale Rider (1985)).

With disarming wit and hilarious visuals, A Town Called Panic: Double Fun revels in the simple setup of three plasticine toys sent on increasingly surreal and freewheeling adventures. Cowboy and Indian are always up to some harebrained scheme, with Horse left to clean up the mess. In Christmas Panic, their out-of-control antics lead Horse to call Santa and cancel the presents. But the boys figure they can still save Christmas… if they break into their neighbor’s house to steal his yule log! In Back to School Panic, a class assignment yields a special prize, but only Pig knows the answer. Cowboy and Indian use a special shrinking potion to sneak into Pig’s brain, where they discover a sodium-packed world of pig cops riding in bacon cars and sausage cycles.
