THE FAREWELL United States. 2019. Directed by Lulu Wang. (98 mins.) Rated PG. [CC,AD] in English and in Mandarin with English subtitles
Beautiful, touching and extremely funny, THE FAREWELL is a sparkling, sentimental story of love and respect for family!
"Extraordinary on every level, Lulu Wang's The Farewell starring an award-caliber Awkwafina builds a funny, touching and vital film about what makes a family in any culture, leaving you with cathartic tears." - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"With impeccable craft, Wang has created a funny, heartfelt and bittersweet film that will ring riotously true for anyone who knows the joys and agonies of a large, complicated family, regardless of culture, ethnicity or nationality" - Katie Walsh, Tribune News Service
When deciding where to watch THE FAREWELL, we hope you'll choose to see it at your favorite independently-owned movie theater where you know that you and movies always matter!
Imbued with warmth and wit, THE FAREWELL is a heartfelt celebration of family bonds and the cultural traditions that tie us to one another. After learning their beloved matriarch has inoperable lung cancer, the family opts to not tell her and instead plans an impromptu wedding in China that allows the whole family to return home, under the guise of a festive shindig, to surreptitiously say their goodbyes. Billi (a knockout breakout performance from Awkwafina), a headstrong New York writer, seems to be the only family member struggling with whether they should reveal the news to her adored grandmother. Once the whole clan gathers, the grief and heartache give way to an overwhelmingly joyous wave of light and love in this incredible crowd-pleasing gem.
WHERE'D YOU GO, BERNADETTE United States. 2019. Directed by Richard Linklater. (109 mins.) Rated PG-13. [CC,AD]
Based on the runaway best selling book, WHERE'D YOU GO, BERNADETTE from director Richard Linklater and starring Cate Blanchett is the adventurous tale of a woman on the road to self-discovery!
"Where’d You Go, Bernadette is about love, but for an American film, it’s something even rarer—a film about the rekindling of a woman’s brilliant career." - Michael Koresky, Film Comment
When deciding where to watch BERNADETTE, we hope you'll choose to see it at your favorite independently-owned movie theater where you know that you and movies always matter!
The psychological portrait of a complicated, intelligent and hilarious woman, this inspiring new comedy from director Richard Linklater (BOYHOOD, BEFORE SUNRISE) takes us on an epic journey to both the outskirts of the world and to the emotional brim of motherhood. Bernadette Fox (a crackling performance from Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett), after a few career disappointments as a widely-renowned architect, shifted her priorities to family life. When things start getting desperately domestic, however, she quietly slips away, compelled to reconnect with her creative passions. WHERE'D YOU GO, BERNADETTE is a warm, whimsical, witty and heartfelt meditation on living your best life.
MAIDEN UK. 2019. Directed by Alex Holmes. (97 mins.) Rated PG. [CC,AD]
The powerful tribute to a true pioneer, MAIDEN is the emotionally exhilarating tale which celebrates the tenacity of female sailors against a tsunami of sexism!
"Maiden celebrates the defiant spirit of all the female athletes who have challenged the sporting world's entrenched sexism." - Kerry Lengel, Arizona Republic
A remarkable story of empowerment and perseverance, this stunning documentary pieces together a suspenseful, poignant and ultimately uplifting journey that speaks to the abiding tenacity of the human spirit. In 1989, despite facing ridicule and skepticism from her male peers, 24-year-old Tracy Edwards became the skipper of the first all-female crew to compete in yachting's most esteemed and dangerous race. Captured with thrilling immediacy by on-board cameras and crew members, MAIDEN is an engrossing, inspiring account and a riveting odyssey of underdog team spirit and sportsmanship.
PHOENIX, OREGON United States. 2019. Directed by Gary Lundgren. (109 mins.) Rated R.
The crowd-pleasing, feel-good film of the summer, PHOENIX, OREGON wowed our Salem audience when it was here back in June for its single premiere showing, so we're bringing it back for a theatrical run!
"Deserves to be seen by as many people as possible. The film walks a gorgeous line between pathos and comedy, proving Lundgren to be a master of tone and discovering the grace notes that make up even the most mundane moments of our lives." - Jared Rasic, The Source Weekly
FROM THE WRITER/DIRECTOR WHO BROUGHT US SALEM CINEMA HIT REDWOOD HIGHWAY!
FILMED IN OREGON! A charming and delightful tale filled with moments of startling clarity, PHOENIX, OREGON takes a comedic look at the existential crisis many face when trying to find meaning and relevance at midlife. Despite controlling bosses, dead-end jobs and broken relationships, Bobby and Carlos (veteran character actors James Le Gros and Jesse Borrego in the best roles of their careers) must awaken their hibernating courage and resilience in order to take new risks and keep their dream alive of restoring an old bowling alley and serving the world's greatest pizza. Radiating warmth and joy, this Oregon-based gem is the kind of movie that makes us remember exactly why we go to the movies.
