  • Weiner

    5:30pm

    Weiner
    • Directors: Josh Kriegman, Elyse Steinberg
    • Genre: Documentary
    • Rating: R
    • Running Time: 96 min.
    "Running a taut 97 minutes, it’s the must-see nonfiction film of the year. "
    - Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
    "Easily escapes the fading headlines about a botched campaign to become an enduring portrait of a political animal caught in a technological trap. "
    - Matthew Lickona, San Diego Reader
    "Weiner is a thorough examination of modern politics, the 24-hour news cycle and the grind of the campaign trail. "
    - Adam Graham, Detroit News
    "The movie goes from being interesting to riveting, from “Yes, this is quite good” to you-cannot-leave-your-seat-and-don’t-even-want-to-blink. "
    - Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
    "Absolutely fascinating, with nearly unlimited and almost unbearably close access. This is the political documentary you never thought you’d actually see. "
    - Rafer Guzman, Newsday
    "Weiner, an extraordinary documentary feature about the disgraced New York politician Anthony Weiner, has it all — the surreal spectacle of contemporary retail politics, the sizzle of media madness and the mysteries of psychodrama. "
    - Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
    "This film doesn’t lionize Weiner or justify anything he did. What it does is capture the frenzy of politics, the iron-clad egos of politicians, and the failure of the media to cover the parts of campaigning and government that actually matter. "
    - Noel Murray, AV Club
  • Maggie's Plan

    5:00pm

    Maggie's Plan
    • Starring: Greta Gerwig, Ethan Hawke, Julianne Moore, Bill Hader, Maya Rudolph
    • Director: Rebecca Miller
    • Genre(s): Comedy
    • Rating: R
    • Running Time: 98 min.
    "Greta Gerwig, Ethan Hawke and Julianne Moore make a pleasing triangle in Rebecca Miller’s offbeat romantic comedy. "
    - Dennis Harvey, Variety
    "True to its title, “Maggie’s Plan” is so crazy that it just might work - and it does. "
    - Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
    "I love movies like this. Movies where we eavesdrop on smart, self-involved, deeply flawed and consistently interesting people. "
    - Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times
    "Miller offers a vivid snapshot of a niche segment of New York. … She truly gets the city’s rhythms and idiosyncrasies, and her dialogue frequently sparkles. "
    - Christy Lemire, RogerEbert.com
    "Buoyed by faultless actors who mesh beautifully, Miller’s film tickles you with laughs that can - suddenly or even days later - choke you up with emotion. "
    - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
  • Love & Friendship

    7:30pm

    Love & Friendship
    • Starring: Kate Beckinsale, Chloë Sevigny, Xavier Samuel, Stephen Fry
    • Director: Whit Stillman
    • Genre(s): Drama, Romance
    • Rating: NR
    • Running Time: 92 min.
    "Finally, a Jane Austen movie that’s fresh and deliciously rotten at the same time. "
    - Peter Howell, Toronto Star
    "A supremely elegant and delicately filigreed adaptation of Jane Austen’s epistolary novella “Lady Susan.” "
    - Justin Chang, Variety
    "Love & Friendship is quick, clever and delightful, very funny and hugely entertaining. "
    - Liz Braun, Toronto Sun
    "A delightful comic romp that fans of the classic English author will love. "
    - Calvin Wilson, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
    "Love & Friendship is a comedy of manners, and manors, and more. It’s a comedy of empowerment and sexual politics, dressed up in the best Austen finery. "
    - Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
    "The language, a lyrical blend of Jane Austen and Whit Stillman, bewitches even as it stings. A sublime Kate Beckinsale digs into the role of her career. Pure pleasure. "
    - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
    "Beckinsale is a hoot to watch as a character with no redeemable qualities, except for her cunning ability to get what she wants. You can’t help but love Lady Susan because of the evident joy she takes in being so duplicitous. Her energy is infectious. "
    - Nigel M Smith, The Guardian
    "It’s flat-out hilarious – find me a funnier screen stab at Austen, and I’m tempted to offer your money back personally. Gliding through its compact 92 minutes with alert photography and not a single scene wasted, it’s also Stillman on the form of his life. "
    - Tim Robey, The Telegraph
  • The Clan (IN TRANSLATION SERIES)

    7:00pm

    The Clan (IN TRANSLATION SERIES)
    • Director: Pablo Trapero
    • Genre(s): Biography, Drama, Thriller, Crime
    • Rating: R
    • Running Time: 110 min.
    "Unsettling and bizarrely humorous, The Clan is the sort of film that ups the ante of any movie that dares open with those dreaded five words: Based on a true story. "
    - Alonso Duralde, TheWrap
    "Francella and Lanzani are excellent, not only in their charged moments together, but throughout this nervy and provocative picture. "
    - Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
    "Trapero reveals the ways in which truth can be much stranger, more tragic and confused, than fiction. "
    - Julia Cooper, The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
    "Argentine powerhouse Pablo Trapero (“Carancho,” “White Elephant”) takes a case so upsetting many refused to believe it was possible and retells it in ghastly detail from the p.o.v. of the perpetrators in The Clan, a muscular, Hollywood-style account of the Puccio fiasco. "
    - Peter Debruge, Variety

ON STAGE: L'Histoire de Manon

starts October 8

The Moxie: On Stage is a new series showcasing world class performances from stages across the globe.

Inspired by L’Abbé Prévost’s legendary heroes, Kenneth MacMillan expresses his fascination for offbeat characters and dramatic subjects. The choreographer faithfully follows the novel’s plot and reconstructs the tragic story of the sensual yet naïve creature who is more victim than architect of her own fate.

In Regency Paris, bourgeois society gorges itself on luxury and easy pleasures. Carried off in this whirlwind, Manon is unable to resist temptation and she drags down the faithful Des Grieux with her in her fall. The choreographer constructs his ballet on a mosaic of extracts from Massenet finding in the music all the drama, freshness and romanticism necessary for this grand fresco in dance. The crowd and ball scenes follow on from spirited pas de deux right up to the ballet’s sublime yet tragic conclusion.

ON STAGE: Anastasia

starts November 19

The Moxie: On Stage is a new series showcasing world class performances from stages across the globe.

An identity in crisis; a country in revolution. ‘The Royal Ballet: Anastasia’ is a ballet about one of the great historical mysteries of the 20th century, only recently solved. At the height of the Russian Revolution the royal family were executed, but afterwards a young woman appeared - apparently a surviving royal princess, the Grand Duchess Anastasia.

One of Kenneth MacMillan’s first creations on becoming Director of The Royal Ballet in 1970, ‘Anastasia’ is a dramatic and haunting exploration of Anna’s nightmare of memory and identity to music by Tchaikovsky and Martin?.

A powerful, psychological challenge for the principal ballerina, this is a rare opportunity to see a landmark ballet by a major choreographer.

One of MacMillan’s first creative acts on becoming Director of The Royal Ballet was to adapt Anastasia into a three-act, full-length work, his first for the Company since Romeo and Juliet. He created two preceding acts to the Berlin act, using music by Tchaikovsky to explore Anna’s ‘memory’ of events in the Imperial family leading up to the Russian Revolution – providing a powerful context for the disturbed Anna’s nightmares of the final act. The full ballet, first performed in 1971, was a declaration of intent: it showcased MacMillan’s dual influences, of classical, Royal Ballet tradition in the first two acts, and of German expressionism – a style then entirely new to British audiences – in the final. The ballet remains one of MacMillan’s most experimental and poignant works
