Denial

drama, 110 minutes, PG-13

Weekend of January 20 | FRI 5:30 | SAT 1 & 7:30 | SUN 12 & 6

Based on the acclaimed book Denial: Holocaust History on Trial, DENIAL recounts Deborah E. Lipstadt’s (Academy Award® winner Rachel Weisz) legal battle for historical truth against David Irving (BAFTA nominee Timothy Spall), who accused her of libel when she declared him a Holocaust denier. In the English legal system, in cases of libel, the burden of proof is on the defendant, therefore it was up to Lipstadt and her legal team, led by Richard Rampton (Academy Award® nominee Tom Wilkinson), to prove the essential truth that the Holocaust occurred.

DENIAL is directed by Emmy Award® winner Mick Jackson (“Temple Grandin”) and adapted for the screen by BAFTA and Academy Award® nominated writer David Hare (The Reader).

 

Things to Come

arthouse, drama, 102 minutes, French, German, & English, PG-13

Weekend of January 20 | FRI 2 & 8:30 | SAT 4 | SUN 3

What happens when the life you’ve worked so hard to build falls apart all at once? Nathalie (Isabelle Huppert, in a radiant performance) is a philosophy teacher with a seemingly settled existence, juggling a rich life of the mind with the day-to-day demands of career and family (including frequent visits to her drama queen mother, played by the legendary Édith Scob). But beginning with the bombshell revelation that her husband of twenty-five years is leaving her, one by one the pillars of Nathalie’s life start to crumble. For the first time in ages, she finds herself adrift, but also with a newfound sense of liberation. With nothing to hold her back, Nathalie sets out to define this new phase of her life and to rediscover herself.

Winner of the Best Director award at the 2016 Berlin International Film Festival, the new film from Mia Hansen-Løve (Eden) is an uncommonly intelligent, soul-searching look at what it means to create a life of one’s own.

They Call Us Monsters

Documentary, 82 minutes, NR

Weekend of January 27 | FRI 2 | SAT 1 | SUN 3

In California, violent juveniles between 14-17 years old can be tried as adults. Typically, they are accused of heinous crimes—murders and attempted murders—that leave their victims’ families shattered. And yet, they are still kids, with a greater capacity to change and one day return to society. What is our responsibility to these kids? And to their victims? Do they deserve a second chance? These are the questions legislators are grappling with across the country as they attempt to reform our juvenile justice system. Meanwhile, behind the walls of the Compound, three violent juvenile offenders are writing a movie as they await their trials. It’s the story of their childhoods with the ending rewritten.

The Sunday 3 pm show is being sponsored by The Delaware Center for Justice, who will host an after-film discussion.

When the unlikelihood of their expectations set in, the two friends are left with little choice than to test their own fate.

I Am Not Your Negro

Documentary, 95 minutes, PG-13

Weekend of February 17 | FRI 5:30 | SAT 1 & 7:30 | SUN 3

In 1979, James Baldwin wrote a letter to his literary agent describing his next project, Remember This House. The book was to be a revolutionary, personal account of the lives and successive assassinations of three of his close friends—Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. At the time of Baldwin’s death in 1987, he left behind only thirty completed pages of his manuscript.

Now, in his incendiary new documentary, master filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished. The result is a radical, up-to-the-minute examination of race in America, using Baldwin’s original words and flood of rich archival material. I Am Not Your Negro is a journey into black history that connects the past of the Civil Rights movement to the present of #BlackLivesMatter. It is a film that questions black representation in Hollywood and beyond. And, ultimately, by confronting the deeper connections between the lives and assassination of these three leaders, Baldwin and Peck have produced a work that challenges the very definition of what America stands for.

Sing Street

106 minutes, Rated PG-13

Weekend of February 24 | FRI 5:30 | SAT 1| SUN 3

From director John Carney (Once, Begin Again), Sing Street takes us back to 1980s Dublin seen through the eyes of a 14-year-old boy named Conor (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo) who is looking for a break from a home strained by his parents’ relationship and money troubles, while trying to adjust to his new inner-city public school where the kids are rough and the teachers are rougher.

He finds a glimmer of hope in the mysterious, über-cool and beautiful Raphina (Lucy Boynton), and with the aim of winning her heart he invites her to star in his band’s music videos. There’s only one problem: he’s not part of a band…yet. She agrees, and now Conor must deliver what he’s promised - calling himself “Cosmo” and immersing himself in the vibrant rock music trends of the decade, he forms a band with a few lads, and the group pours their heart into writing lyrics and shooting videos.

Inspired by writer/director John Carney’s life and love for music, Sing Street shows us a world where music has the power to take us away from the turmoil of everyday life and transform us into something greater.

Nominations

Golden Globes, USA, 2017- Nominated for Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy

Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

“The Eagle Huntress” is all at once an inspiring story for children of all ages to believe that they can do anything, a reflection of the unfairness of gender roles and a rare and unique look at a remote part of the world.

You're Killing Me Susana

Comedy, Drama, Romance, 100 minutes, NR

Weekend of March 3 | FRI 5:30 | SAT 1| SUN 3

“You’re Killing Me Susana” is based on the novel “Deserted Cities” by Jose Agustin.

Gael García Bernal is effortlessly charming in this hilarious culture-shock comedy about a womanizing Mexican actor whose wife abandons him in the dead of night. Lovesick and a bit bullheaded, he tracks her down to a writer’s conference in Iowa, provoking one international incident after another as he pursues her across the border. Soon, this couple will test the limits of their patience—and their love.

Kedi

Documentary, 80 minutes, NR

Weekend of March 10 | FRI 5:30 | SAT 1 | SUN 3

KEDi is not a documentary about house cats or the strays you occasionally see in your back yard. KEDi is a film about the hundreds of thousands of cats who have roamed the metropolis of Istanbul freely for thousands of years, wandering in and out of people’s lives, impacting them in ways only an animal who lives between the worlds of the wild and the tamed can. Cats and their kittens bring joy and purpose to those they choose, giving people an opportunity to reflect on life and their place in it. In Istanbul, cats are the mirrors to ourselves.

Reset

Documentary, 110 minutes, NR

Weekend of March 10 | FRI 2 | SAT 7:30 | SUN 3

Stunningly gorgeous and delicate in both subject and treatment, RESET depicts renowned choreographer and dancer Benjamin Millepied (best known for choreographing the dance sequences in Darren Aronofsky’s BLACK SWAN) as he attempts to rejuvenate the Paris Opera Ballet in his new position as director.

It’s an illustrious, nerve-wracking job, and on the basis of Demaizière and Teurlai’s profile, it’s one for which Millepied is immediately up to the task.

From the film’s initial moments, the 38-year-old seems completely energized by the opportunity to re imagine the famed institution’s work for the modern era. As he repeatedly declares, gone are the days of all-Caucasian casts, lousy stage facilities, and instructional brow-beating. For Millepied, modernization is vital in order to keep the establishment relevant, both with audiences and with dancers who, in his opinion, are too often taught to be robotic clones by abusive teachers.

With appearances by composer Nico Muhly, Opera alumna Aurélie Dupont, and designer Iris van Herpen, RESET is a delightfully aesthetic affair from filmmakers Thierry Demaizière and Alban Teurlai, a moving portrait of a landmark moment for one of the ballet’s oldest institutions and one of its brightest new stars, both on the cusp of great transition.
