SYNOPSES OF UPCOMING FILMS
*BLACKHAT (2015 – R) 133 min. Director: Michael Mann. With Chris Hemsworth, Viola Davis, Wei Tang, Leehom Wang. "Blackhat isn't a failed action movie – it's a big-budget avant-garde film" ran the headline of a Chicago Reader review last January. Don't let either part of that statement (neither is true) keep you from your chance to catch Michael Mann (Manhunter 1986) transforming brick and mortar cities into circuitry, and glossy magazines into body armor, in this 21st century meditation on presence vs. remote access. A BU Film/Media Studies course screening – Free
*NT LIVE: EVERYMAN (15+) 100 min. BAFTA winner and Academy Award® nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave) takes the title role in this dynamic new production of one of English drama’s oldest plays, directed by the National Theatre’s new Director Rufus Norris (Broken, London Road). Everyman is successful, popular and riding high when Death comes calling. He is forced to abandon the life he has built and embark on a last, frantic search to recruit a friend, anyone, to speak in his defence. But Death is close behind, and time is running out. One of the great primal, spiritual myths, Everyman asks whether it is only in death that we can understand our lives. A cornerstone of English drama since the 15th century, it now explodes onto the stage in a startling production with words by Carol Ann Duffy, Poet Laureate, and movement by Javier De Frutos.

*DOUBLE SUICIDE (1969 – NR) 142 min. Drama. Director Masahiro Shinoda. In 18th Century in Japan, the paper merchant Jihei (Kichiemon Nakamura) falls in love for the courtesan Koharu (Shima Iwashita), but he can not afford to redeem her from her master and owner of the brothel, since he spent all his money in the place with Koharu. Jihei's wife Osan tries to keep her husband with his two children and asks Koharu to leave him. The two lovers make a pact of double suicide to escape from the rigid rules of the Japanese society of 1720 and stay together after death. Part of the BU Film/Media Series - $2
FIELD OF DREAMS (1989 – PG) 107 min. Family/Fantasy/Drama. Oscar Nominee. Director: Phil Alden Robinson. Stars: Kevin Costner, James Earl Jones, Ray Liotta. Field of Dreams is sentimental, but in the best way; it's a mix of fairy tale, baseball, and family togetherness. An Iowa corn farmer, hearing voices, interprets them as a command to build a baseball diamond in his fields; he does, and the Chicago Black Sox come. Introduction Speaker: Lance Van Auken, Executive Director, Little League Museum; Vice President of Little League Baseball, Inc. Topic: How and why Baseball is America’s favorite pastime. Funded in part by The Woodcock Foundation for the Appreciation of the Arts
*FURY (1936) 92 min. Director: Fritz Lang. With Spencer Tracy, Sylvia Sidney, Walter Brennan. Paranoia and violence permeate Lang's American debut. After fleeing Germany, the extraordinary director applied his Expressionistic, proto-noir visual style to a waking nightmare: Spencer Tracy, a stranger in a small town, is charged with a crime and hunted by a mob to his presumed death – a hidden vantage point from which he follows the trial of the town's citizens for his murder. A BU Film/Media Studies course screening – Free
*GOLD DIGGERS OF 1935 (1935) 98 min. Director: Busby Berkeley. With Dick Powell, Adolphe Menjou, Gloria Stuart. The third in a series of four Gold Diggers musicals, 1935 is a Busby Berkeley affair. In his first solo outing as director, the famed choreographer crafted one of his most masterful numbers, “The Lullaby of Broadway,” in which an astonishingly endless parade of synchronized tap dancers showcases Berkeley’s visual artistry. He also proved adept at handling romantic comedy, here set at a swanky New England resort where a hotel clerk (Powell) falls for the daughter (Stuart) of a parsimonious millionairess (Alice Brady). A BU Film/Media Studies course screening - Free
*HER (2013 – R) 126 min. Director: Spike Jonze. With Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams, Scarlett Johansson. In the Los Angeles of the slight future, the soulful Theodore Twombly (Phoenix), heartbroken after the end of a long relationship, meets Samantha (voiced by Johansson), a new, advanced operating system. Their friendship deepens into a unique love story in Jones’ first original screenplay, described in The Atlantic as “a work of sincere and forceful humanism [that] uses the tools of lightly scienced fiction to pose questions of genuine emotional and philosophical weight.” A BU Film/Media Studies course screening - Free
INSIDE OUT (PG) 94 min. Animation/Adventure/Comedy. Directors: Pete Docter, Ronaldo Del Carmen. Stars: Amy Poehler, Bill Hader. Inventive, gorgeously animated, and powerfully moving. After young Riley is uprooted from her Midwest life and moved to San Francisco, her emotions - Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness - conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house, and school.
*LE JOLI MAI (1963 – UR) 180 min. In this non-traditional documentary about Paris, instead of covering the usual sights and sounds of the city, writer/director Chris Marker takes his film crew to the street and interviews people on the spot and in their homes. Comments range from the French-Algerian conflict and the stock market to everyday problems of housing, homelessness, working conditions and moral and religious observations. Although the classic art and culture that made Paris famous worldwide is discussed, the primary focus is on how Parisians look at themselves and their everyday lives
LOVE & MERCY (PG-13) 121 min. Biography/Drama/Music. Director: Bill Pohlad. Stars: John Cusack, Paul Dano, Elizabeth Banks. Easily takes a seat not only amongst the very best music biopics, but amongst those rare films that are able to dramatize the creative process. In the 1960s, Beach Boys leader Brian Wilson struggles with emerging psychosis as he attempts to craft his avant-garde pop masterpiece. In the 1980s, he is a broken, confused man under the 24-hour watch of shady therapist Dr. Eugene Landy.
ME AND EARL AND THE DYING GIRL (PG-13) 105 min. Comedy/Drama. Director: Alfonso Gomez-Rejon. Stars: Thomas Mann, RJ Cyler, Olivia Cooke. A coming-of-age movie with uncommon charm and insight. 2015 Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize winner!

MR. HOLMES (PG) 104 min. Drama/Suspense. Director: Bill Condon. Stars Ian McKellan & Laura Linney. A new twist on the world's most famous detective. 1947, an aging Sherlock Holmes returns from a journey to Japan, where he has witnessed the devastation of nuclear warfare. Now, in his remote farmhouse, he faces the end of his days with only the company of his housekeeper and her young son, Roger. Grappling with the diminishing powers of his mind, Holmes comes to rely upon the boy as he revisits unsolved case that forced him into retirement, and searches for answers to the mysteries of life and love - before it's too late.
RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK (1981 – PG) 115 min. Action/Adventure. Director: Steven Spielberg. Stars: Harrison Ford and Karen Allen. One of the most consummately entertaining adventure pictures of all time. Archaeologist and adventurer Indiana Jones is hired by the US government to find the Ark of the Covenant before the Nazis. Admission is $5 for the general public and free for current Campus Theatre Members.
SPY (R) 120 min. Comedy/Action/Crime. Director: Paul Feig. Stars: Melissa McCarthy, Rose Byrne, Jude Law. A raucous action comedy, which simultaneously spoofs the espionage genre and provides some genuine thrills. A desk-bound CIA analyst volunteers to go undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent diabolical global disaster.
*SHADOW OF A DOUBT (1943 – NR) 108 min. Drama. Director: Alfred Hitchcock. Stars: Joseph Cotten, Teresa Wright, Macdonald Carey. Set in a small all-American town Shadow engages one of Hitch’s most disturbing proposals: evil lurks close-by, veiled by the familiar. Cotten’s Uncle Charlie is the perfect foil for his adoring niece, a young woman whose yearning for adventure meets its match when she suspects her charming uncle may be a hunted serial killer. Hitchcock called the film his personal favorite. Bucknell Univ. Film/Media Studies Course Screenings - Free & Open to the Public.
TESTAMENT OF YOUTH (PG-13) 129 min. Biography/Drama/History. Director: James Kent. Stars: Alicia Vikander, Kit Harington, Taron Egerton. Striking an elegantly sustained balance between intimacy and historical scope, Testament of Youth encompasses nearly all of the virtues of classical British period drama and nearly none of the vices. Testament of Youth is a powerful story of love, war and remembrance, based on the First World War memoir by Vera Brittain, which has become the classic testimony of that war from a woman's point of view. A searing journey from youthful hopes and dreams to the edge of despair and back again, it's a film about young love, the futility of war and how to make sense of the darkest times.
*THE THIRD MAN (UK 1949) 92 min. Director: Carol Reed. With Joseph Cotten, Alida Valli, Orson Welles. In this centenary year of the birth of Orson Welles, arguably the greatest American film artist of the 20th century, the BU Film/Media Series kicks off with the presentation of the first major restoration of The Third Man. Carol Reed’s triumph of atmosphere features one of Welles’ iconic roles: Harry Lime. In rubble-strewn postwar Vienna, Joseph Cotten’s pulp writer Holly Martins arrives to meet up with Lime, his old friend, only to find that he’s dead — or is he? As the supremely naïve Cotten descends through levels of deception, moral choices loom both beneath Vienna, in its dripping sewers, and above, on the gigantic Riesenrad ferris wheel. Part of the BU Film/Media Series - $2
WIZARD OF OZ (1939 – NR) 102 min. Adventure/Family/Fantasy. Oscar Award Winner. Director: Victor Fleming. Stars: Judy Garland, Frank Morgan, Ray Bolger. An absolute masterpiece whose groundbreaking visuals and deft storytelling are still every bit as resonant, The Wizard of Oz is a must-see film for young and old. Dorothy, an innocent farm girl is whisked out of her mundane earthbound existence into a land of pure imagination. Dorothy's journey in Oz will take her through emerald forests, yellow brick roads, and creepy castles, all with the help of some unusual but earnest song-happy friends Introduction Speaker: Rebecca Willoughby, Visiting Assistant Professor of Communications, Susquehanna University Topic: The use of color in the film.
