PAIN & GLORY

Spain. 2019. Directed by Pedro Almodovar. (113 mins.) Rated R. in Spanish with English subtitles

A potent, evocative and emotional experience, Pedro Almodovar's PAIN & GLORY is an achingly beautiful and mesmerizing dance between the past and the present!

Academy Awards Nominee! Best Actor - Antonio Banderas, Best International Feature Film

"Pain and Glory, all about healing rifts and rejoining life, is personal and universal. It's also simple in a way that's incandescent - suffused by a strange and beautiful gentleness of spirit." - Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle


Combining the intricate, maze-like memory shifts of his recent films with the endlessly inventive, mixed-media craftsmanship of his earlier creations, this monumental work from auteur Pedro Almodóvar is a powerfully personal, autobiographical homage. Reuniting with the man who first put him on the map, Antonio Banderas gives the most tender performance of his career, playing Salvador Mallo, a fading director who, amid bouts of crippling chronic pain, looks back at his life – at a falling-out with his favorite star, at his adolescent sexual awakening, at a love affair gone awry, and at the struggles of his devout, impoverished mother (Penélope Cruz). PAIN AND GLORY is a vibrant, provocative, nostalgic drama and yet another dazzling showcase from the undisputed master of Spanish cinema.

A HIDDEN LIFE

United States/Germany. 2019. Directed by Terrence Malick. (173 mins.) Rated PG-13. [CC,AD]

Passionate, powerful and visually sumptuous, A HIDDEN LIFE is a timely meditation on faith and conscience from acclaimed director Terrence Malick!

"It quietly demands viewers wind down to become in sync with Jägerstätter's rural life, a world of planting and harvesting, back-breaking labor and joyous celebration, community and kinship." - Cary Darling, Houston Chronicle

Film Independent Spirit Awards Nominee! Best Feature


Interweaving vibrant cinematography with haunting orchestration, Terrence Malick’s triumphant, cinematic return is a poignant rumination on faith, humanity and compassion. This historical drama features the true story of Franz Jägerstätter (August Diehl), an Austrian farmer and devout Catholic whose idyllic life is shattered when he becomes a conscientious objector during World War II. Ripped from his family and faced with the threat of execution, he undergoes a crisis of despair and devotion, embarking on a tumultuous, soul-searching journey. A searing exploration of the consequences of upholding one's convictions in a time of terrifying upheaval, A HIDDEN LIFE relays a little-known tale of quiet heroism.

LITTLE WOMEN

United States. 2019. Directed by Greta Gerwig. (135 mins.) Rated PG. [CC,AD]


When deciding where to watch Little Women, we sincerely hope you'll choose your favorite, locally-owned independent movie theater where you know that you and movies always matter!

With a stellar cast and a smart, sensitive retelling of its classic source material, Greta Gerwig's LITTLE WOMEN proves some stories truly are timeless.

"Fresh, sparkling, natural and full of soul." - Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune

Academy Awards Nominee! Best Picture, Best Actress - Saoirse Ronan, Best Supporting Actress - Florence Pugh, Best Costume Design, Best Original Score, Best Adapted Screenplay

Critics' Choice Awards Winner! Best Adapted Screenplay


Writer-director Greta Gerwig (LADY BIRD) has crafted a LITTLE WOMEN that draws on both the classic novel and the writings of Louisa May Alcott, and unfolds as the author's alter ego, Jo March, reflects back and forth on her fictional life. In Gerwig's rendering, the adored story of the March sisters – four young women each determined to live life on her own terms – is both timeless and timely. Portraying Jo, Meg, Amy and Beth March, the film stars Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh and Eliza Scanlen, with Timothée Chalamet as their neighbor Laurie, Laura Dern as Marmee and Meryl Streep as Aunt March. It is a lively, tremendously resonant take on the beloved tale that stays true to its old-fashioned beliefs and joyously reminds us that the virtues of kindness and selflessness will never grow old.

PARASITE

South Korean. 2019. Directed by Bong Joon-ho. (132 mins.) Rated R. in Korean with English subtitles

If you can, go in not knowing too many details! However, PARASITE, the best reviewed movie of the year, is a sarcastic, clever, brilliant and unabashedly frenzied thriller!

"Let's just say it: the South Korean auteur Bong Joon Ho is some kind of genius and he tops himself with 'Parasite' – it's explosive filmmaking on every level and one of the cinema high points of 2019. You won't know what hit you." - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

Academy Awards Nominee!Best Picture, Best International Feature Film, Best Director, Best Film Editing, Best Production Design, Best Original Screenplay

Golden Globe Winner! Best Foreign Language Film

New York Film Critics Online Winner! Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay

Los Angeles Film Critics Award Winner! Best Picture, Best Director, Best Supporting Actor - Song Kang Ho

Critics' Choice Awards Winner! Best Director (tie), Best Foreign Language Film

Film Independent Spirit Awards Nominee! Best International Film

Screen Actors Guild Awards Nominee! Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture

Hollywood Critics Association Winner! Best Original Screenplay, Best Foreign Language Film


South Korean master filmmaker Bong Joon-ho’s fiendishly clever Palme d’Or winner is an unpredictable comic suspense thriller for this age of class division and income inequality. The Kims, a poverty-stricken family of four, reside in a cramped basement apartment where they struggle to make ends meet. They craftily set their sights on manipulating their way into the good graces of the Park family, a wealthy but sometimes clueless clan of yuppies. But simmering class tensions are not so easily suppressed and an unstoppable string of mishaps lies in wait. Casting an elegant, pitiless gaze on the complacent rich and the resentful poor alike, PARASITE is a dark, funny and palpably urgent tale of economic disparity, social polarization and human desperation. Watch for multiple award nominations... Oscar's already got his eye on this one!

JOJO RABBIT

United States/Germany. 2019. Directed by Taika Waititi. (108 mins.) Rated PG-13. [CC,AD]

One of the best films of the year, JOJO RABBIT nimbly zips through the full gamut of emotions, by turns uproarious, warm, heart-rending, horrifying, silly, surreal, scary and joyous!

"A sprightly, attractively composed coming-of-age comedy set in World War II Germany, "Jojo Rabbit" is an audacious high-wire act." - Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

"A smart, accessible, inclusive film that opens doors at a time when many are slamming them shut. It's a celebration of the gift of life that's inviting you to dance with it. So dance with it." - Adam Graham, Detroit News

Academy Awards Nominee! Best Picture, Best Actress in a Supporting Role - Scarlett Johansson, Best Costume Design, Best Film Editing, Best Production Design, Best Adapted Screenplay

Critics' Choice Awards Winner! Best Young Actor or Actress - Roman Griffin Davis

Screen Actors Guild Awards Nominee! Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role - Scarlett Johansson, Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture

Hollywood Critics Association Winner! Best Adapted Screenplay


A dazzling takedown of fascist thinking and the violence it fuels, this riotous comedic satire from director Taika Waititi (HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE, WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS) delivers surprising emotional impact. Jojo Betzler (Roman Griffin Davis) is a precocious, socially awkward kid in World War II Germany. A proud member of the Hitler Youth, Jojo passes much of his time with his imaginary friend Adolf (Waititi), a cuddly, energetic, pep-talking version of the Führer. Having completely given his blind allegiance to Nazi propaganda, Jojo is incensed when he discovers that his mother (Scarlett Johansson) has been working for the resistance, helping to keep safe the Jewish people he's been taught to hate. With Germany on the brink of collapse, the young boy is faced with the choice of clinging to his misguided beliefs or embracing his humanity. A wild and irreverent comedy infused with an abundance of heart and charm, JOJO RABBIT is a deeply funny and surprisingly touching depiction of our capacity for loathing and loving. This is a movie for the ages and is not to be missed!
