    "Being in the presence of Plummer these days is always time well spent. "

    6:30pm, 8:30pm

    Three Identical Strangers
    • Director: Tim Wardle
    • Genre(s): Documentary
    • Rating: PG-13
    • Running Time: 96 min.
    "It’s best to go in as cold as possible, to try (and likely fail) to guess what comes next, and to prepare for a wild, twisting nonfiction ride. "
    - Brent McKnight, Seattle Times
    "A gripping, stranger-than-fiction account of a real-world medical conspiracy, the film begins as a human-interest story and builds to an impressive work of investigative journalism into how and why they were placed with the families who raised them. "
    - Peter Debruge, Variety
    "Wardle deserves credit for journalistic doggedness and also for making a documentary that plays like a nerve-jangling thriller. "
    - Dan Callahan, TheWrap
    "Three Identical Strangers may be non-fiction but it’s structured and composed like the best short story you’ve never heard. And it’s one that definitely proves the dictum that life is stranger than fiction. "
    - Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com
    "This is a strange, ultimately quite distressing story touched by tragedy, told by Wardle with great skill and compassion in a brisk, consistently absorbing package. "

  • American Animals

    8:15pm

    American Animals
    • Starring: Evan Peters, Barry Keoghan, Blake Jenner, Jared Abrahamson
    • Director: Bart Layton
    • Genre(s): Drama, Crime
    • Rating: R
    • Running Time: 116 min.
    "American Animals is ultimately a fairly straightforward heist movie, albeit a stylish and engaging one. "
    - A.A. Dowd, AV Club
    "A riveting college-boy crime caper that tiggers along on pure movie-movie adrenalin, before U-turning into a sobering reflection on young male privilege and entitlement. "
    - Guy Lodge, Variety
    "Both as a writer and director, Layton delivers the dramatic goods here with the skill of a pro at the top of his game while adding the rueful perspective of time’s reassessment of youthful indiscretions; this has to rate among the most accomplished and fully realized big-screen debuts of recent times. "
    - Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter
    "American Animals is a legitimately exciting, funny, suspenseful, and at one point deeply upsetting crime film, ably demonstrating a command of genre trappings in service of a narrative about people warped by those very clichés. "
    - Daniel Schindel, The Film Stage
    "‘American Animals’ is fascinating, funny and, in the end, deep. "
    - Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
    "‘American Animals’ evokes the feeling of an anxiety dream, specifically the common one in which you know you’ve done something bad and irrevocable and now must live with the consequences. "
    - Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
    "Thanks to Layton’s filmmaking choices, ‘American Animals’ ends up being not so much a crime movie as an examination of truth and memory, as well as blame and responsibility. "
    - Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
    "Confusing? Not a bit. Writer/director Bart Layton employs all the tricks in the docufiction playbook…[to] create a uniquely tricky heist flick and he makes sure the audience can keep up. "
    - Bob Mondello, NPR's All Things Considered
    "American Animals requires many cuts and perspectives which are second-nature to an accomplished documentarian, yet the drama here also seems effortless and seamlessly integrated. "
    - Fionnuala Halligan, Screen International
    "Vivid is a good word at large, here. There’s a freshness and energy to American Animals. "
    - Allison Shoemaker, Consequence of Sound
    "American Animals is not like other criminal stories and the differences make it one of the summer’s freshest, most entertaining films. "
    - Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
    "American Animals is a high-style caper that touches a deeper chord of youthful indiscretion and moral imbalance. You won’t be able to stop talking about it. "

  • Won't You Be My Neighbor?

    4:00pm

    Won't You Be My Neighbor?
    • Director: Morgan Neville
    • Genre(s): Biography, Documentary
    • Rating: PG-13
    • Running Time: 94 min.
    "A film that so deeply embodies its subject that it almost transcends it. "
    - Oliver Jones, New York Observer
    "On paper, all that low-key positivity ought to be tricky material for a documentary filmmaker. But watching “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” was a profoundly emotional experience. "
    - Steve Pond, TheWrap
    "Neville’s fantastic archival footage reveals the man through his work — or at least, it reveals his philosophies, if not the childhood memories that gave Rogers the ability to understand a four-year-old’s brain, almost as if he still carried his in his cardigan pocket. "
    - Amy Nicholson, Variety
    "This beautiful film celebrates a deeply good man with a great gift for repairing. "
    - Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
    "The documentary is ultimately bittersweet, because it highlights just how alien Fred Rogers’ philosophy of television has become today. But the film also functions as a gentle rallying cry. "
    - Lara Zarum, Village Voice
    "Mister Rogers made it his mission to give kids self-esteem. His neighborhood made the world a better place, and Won’t You Be My Neighbor provides us a rewarding return visit. "
    - Chris Vognar, Dallas Morning News
    "It’s a zenlike break from ugly divisions and social-media posturing. It’s an hour-and-a-half of peace, a movie that exists beyond cynicism and irony. "
    - Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
    "This movie is at once unapologetically admiring and intellectually rigorous. "
    - A.O. Scott, New York Times
    "We tend to develop a thick, cold skin of cynicism over the years. Won’t You Be My Neighbor? skillfully peels that away, so viewers can remember one of Mister Rogers’ most important lessons: that it’s okay to feel. "
    - Noel Murray, AV Club
    "Soothing TV host Fred Rogers was quietly radical at shaping generations of American children. And this funny, touching and vital doc from Oscar winner Morgan Neville shows why the late Mr. Rogers remains timely and timeless. "
    - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
    "In Won’t You Be My Neighbor, the touching and insightful survey of Rogers’ decades-spanning career from Oscar-winning director Morgan Neville (“Twenty Feet From Stardom”), the filmmaker highlights Rogers’ capacity to explore complex themes through the lens of a kid’s program that took a dead-serious approach to his young viewers’ needs. "
    - Eric Kohn, Indiewire

    • Genre(s): Animation, Adventure, Comedy
    • Language(s): English, Japanese
    • Rating: PG
    • Running Time: 93 min.
    "Animator/fabulist Hayao Miyazaki pays homage to Hollywood’s wartime adventure films in this masterwork built around the adventures of a high-flying pig. "
    - Robert Pardi, TV Guide
    "Not only does this rank among Miyazaki’s finest achievements, it reflects his personal love of aviation, his political concerns and his fullest expression to date of a non-fantasy world resembling our own. "
    - Robert Koehler, Variety
    "As usual with Miyazaki, the plot fits, starts and digresses at will, taking in the textures of pre-fascist Italy, details on the history of aviation and a lucid discussion on gender equality and physical beauty. Oh, and the kids will love it too. "
    - David Jenkins, Time Out
    "This homage to vintage Howard Hawks-style aerial thrills is as beautifully drawn and colored as anything he’s done. And it’s tremendous fun. "
    - Mike Hale, The New York
    "It’s in this view of the military life, and competition in general, that Porco Rosso reveals itself to be one of Miyazaki’s most personal works. "
    - Chris Cabin, Slant Magazine

On Stage: The Royal Ballet's Swan Lake

starts July 24

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

Tickets: $20/adults; $15/members & students.

This series is made possible thanks to a grant from the Springfield Regional Arts Council.

Swan Lake has had a special role in the repertory of The Royal Ballet since 1934.
This Season The Royal Ballet creates a new production with additional choreography by Artist in Residence Liam Scarlett. While remaining faithful to the Petipa-Ivanov text, Scarlett will bring fresh eyes to the staging of this classic ballet, in collaboration with his long-term designer John Macfarlane. Prince Siegfried chances upon a flock of swans while out hunting. When one of the swans turns into a beautiful woman, Odette, he is enraptured. But she is under a spell that holds her captive, allowing her to regain her human form only at night. Swan Lake was Tchaikovsky’s first ballet score. Given its status today as arguably the best loved and most admired of all classical ballets, it is perhaps surprising that at its premiere in 1877 Swan Lake was poorly received. It is thanks to the 1895 production by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov that Swan Lake has become part of not only ballet consciousness but also wider popular culture. That success is secured not only by the sublime, symphonic sweep of Tchaikovsky’s score, but also by the striking choreographic contrasts between Petipa’s royal palace scenes and the lyric lakeside scenes created by Ivanov.

They Shoot Horses, Don't They? (1969)

starts July 27

Staff Picks Series Every month a member of the Moxie staff picks a film that impacted their lives and we put it up on the big screen. July’s pick was made by Shay Rainey. “I wanted to screen this for the Moxie crowd because I think it’s one of the best and least well known movies to come out on the cusp of the 70s cinema revolution, and it’s definitely something for film lovers. Other films like The Last Picture Show, The Godfather, and The Deer Hunter are great examples of American stories being told during the same period that have all the idealism of the 50s juxtaposed with the contemporary reality of war and greed. They Shoot Horses is tough, brilliantly shot, and hosts iconic performances from an ensemble cast. It runs the gamut of emotions, making it a true cinematic treasure. In college I had a class with Dr. Pat Elliot that introduced me to seventies film. Her instruction had a profound influence on me. I’ve been in love with the decade ever since. She had an immeasurable knowledge of film that helped shape her students. This screening is dedicated to her.”

As the marathon winds into a staggering second month, suspicion, doubt and insecurity rages among the competitors and even the decaying and increasingly manipulative Rocky, leading to a shocking crime.

Summer 1993

starts July 27

Estiu 1993 is part of our In Translation series of recent foreign language films of note.

In the summer 1993, following the death of her parents, six years old Frida moves from Barcelona to the Catalan province to live with her aunt and uncle, who are now her new legal guardians. The country life is a challenge for Frida – time passes differently in her new home and the nature that surrounds her is mysterious and estranging. She now has a little sister for whom she has to take care of and has to deal with new feelings, such as jealousy. Often, Frida is naively convinced that running away would be the best solution to her problems. Yet, the family does what it can to achieve a fragile new balance and bring normality to their life. Occasional family outings to a local fiesta or a swimming pool, cooking or listening to jazz in the garden bring them moments of happiness. Slowly, Frida realizes that she is there to stay and has to adapt to the new environment. Before the season is over, she has to cope with her emotions and her parents have to learn to love her as their own daughter.

The Essentials: Meet Me in St. Louis (1944)

starts August 5

The Essentials: Musicals
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!

Summary: Sally Benson’s short stories about the turn-of-the-century Smith family of St. Louis were tackled by a battalion of MGM screenwriters, who hoped to find a throughline to connect the anecdotal tales. After several false starts (one of which proposed that the eldest Smith daughter be kidnapped and held for ransom), the result was the charming valentine-card musical Meet Me in St. Louis. The plot hinges on the possibility that Alonzo Smith (Leon Ames), the family’s banker father, might uproot the Smiths to New York, scuttling his daughter Esther (Judy Garland)’s romance with boy-next-door John Truett (Tom Drake) and causing similar emotional trauma for the rest of the household. In a cast that includes Mary Astor as Ames’ wife, Lucille Bremer as another Ames daughter, and Marjorie Main as the housekeeper, the most fascinating character is played by 6-year-old Margaret O’Brien. As kid sister Tootie, O’Brien seems morbidly obsessed with death and murder, burying her dolls, “killing” a neighbor at Halloween (she throws flour in the flustered man’s face on a dare), and maniacally bludgeoning her snowmen when Papa announces his plans to move to New York. Margaret O’Brien won a special Oscar for her remarkable performance, prompting Lionel Barrymore to grumble “Two hundred years ago, she would have been burned at the stake!” The songs are a heady combination of period tunes and newly minted numbers by Ralph Blane and Hugh Martin, the best of which are The Boy Next Door, The Trolley Song, and Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas. As a bonus, Meet Me in St. Louis is lensed in rich Technicolor, shown to best advantage in the climactic scenes at the St. Louis World’s Fair of 1904. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Yellow Submarine

starts August 10

An icon of psychedelic pop culture, Yellow Submarine is a colourful musical spectacle and an exhilaratingly joyful cinematic experience for all ages – filled with visual invention, optical illusions, word play, and glorious, glorious music. Once upon a time….or maybe twice….there was an unearthly paradise called Pepperland, 80,000 leagues under the sea it lay, a place where beauty, happiness, and music reign supreme. But this peaceful harmony is shattered when the Blue Meanies invade with their army of storm bloopers, apple bonkers, snapping turtle turks, and the menacing flying glove in an attempt to stop the music and drain Pepperland of all colour and hope. So it’s The Beatles to the rescue, as our animated heroes team up with Young Fred and the Nowhere Man and journey across seven seas to free Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, make peace with the Meanies, and restore music, colour, and love to the world. But beyond all the glorious music, Yellow Submarine is a landmark in animation, with Heinz Edelmann’s inspired art direction conjuring up a non-stop parade of wildly different styles and techniques. From the paper-doll residents of Pepperland, to the tinted photography of the soot covered roofs and smokestacks Liverpool, the menagerie of fanciful characters in the Sea of Monsters, the kaleidoscopic colour-splashed rotoscoping of Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, the vertigo inducing op-art of the Sea of Holes, and the triumphant euphony of the It’s All Too Much finale, the film is simply a joy.

Summary:
A young woman separated from her lover by war faces a life-altering decision.

Summary: Among the most important documentaries ever made, The Thin Blue Line, by Errol Morris, erases the border between art and activism. A work of meticulous journalism and gripping drama, it recounts the disturbing tale of Randall Dale Adams, a drifter who was charged with the murder of a Dallas police officer and sent to death row, despite evidence that he did not commit the crime. Incorporating stylized reenactments, penetrating interviews, and haunting original music by Philip Glass, Morris uses cinema to build a case forensically while effortlessly entertaining his viewers. The Thin Blue Line effected real-world change, proving film’s power beyond the shadow of a doubt.

Summary: A female girlie club entertainer in Weimar Republic era Berlin romances two men while the Nazi Party rises to power around them.

Cabaret (1972) is director/choreographer Bob Fosse’s defining, decadent, award-winning musical which popularized the phrase: “Life is a Cabaret.” It was only Fosse’s second film, but won numerous accolades (and was a financial and artistic hit), and has been viewed in retrospect as the only truly great musical of the 1970s.

The boundary-pushing film, with themes of corruption, sexual ambiguity and false dreams, was adapted from the grim 1966 Tony-winning Broadway stage production, which was in turn inspired by gay author Christopher Isherwood’s 1945 Berlin Stories (including 1939’s short story Goodbye to Berlin) and John Van Druten’s 1951 play and movie I Am a Camera (1955, UK).
