SYNOPSIS OF UPCOMING FILMS
ERNEST & CELESTINE (PG) 80 min - Animation | Comedy | Drama . Directors: Stéphane Aubier, Vincent Patar. Stars: Forest Whitaker, Lambert Wilson, Pauline Brunner. The story of an unlikely friendship between a bear, Ernest, and a young mouse named Celestine. A 2013 Oscar Nominee for Best Animated Feature!
FRENZY (1972) (R) 116 min. 35mm Drama. Director: Alfred Hitchcock, U.S. Stars: Jon Finch, Barry Foster, Alec McCowen. A bartender is mistaken for the strangler in a London murder spree in this revisiting of one Hitchcock’s favored themes, the wrongfully accused man. Hearkening back to The Lodger, Frenzy contains notable diversions from the silent classic: the killer is revealed early, the innocent man is coldly unlikable and the violence is seamy–particularly a controversially prolonged murder-rape sequence. Bucknell Univ. Film/Media Studies Course Screenings - Free & Open to the Public.
LE JOLI MAI (1963) (NR) 145 min. Documentary. Directors: Chris Marker & Pierre Lhomme.. An early film from the prolific, poetic and revered cinematic essayist Chris Marker. Le Joli Mai is “a far-reaching meditation on the relationship between individual and society” (Film Comment), a portrait of Paris with several thousand actors – including a poet, a student, an owl, a housewife, a stockbroker, a dancer, two lovers, General de Gaulle and several cats. Filming just after the ceasefire between France and Algeria, Marker and Lhomme documented Paris during a turning point in French history. Presented on a 50th anniversary digital restoration. Introduced by John Hunter, Professor of Comparative Humanities. Co-sponsored by the Bucknell University Comparative Humanities Program. Bucknell University Film/Media Studies Series - $2 admission
MARNIE (1964) (NR) 130 min. Drama. Director: Alfred Hitchcock, U.S. Stars: Tippi Hedren, Sean Connery, Diane Baker. Marnie was largely dismissed upon its initial release, but has since been reappraised as a disquieting, Vertigo-like study of perverse romantic obsession–and a masterpiece in its own right. Hedren has the title role as a beautiful but pathologically frigid kleptomaniac blackmailed by her wealthy employer (Connery). Bucknell Univ. Film/Media Studies Course Screenings - Free & Open to the Public.
MODERN TIMES (1936) (NR) 87 min. 35mm. Comedy. Director: Charlie Chaplin, U.S. Stars: Charlie Chaplin, Paulette Goddard Chaplin’s last outing as the Little Tramp puts the iconic character to work as a giddily inept factory employee who becomes smitten with a gorgeous gamine (Goddard). With its barrage of unforgettable gags and sly commentary on class struggle during the Great Depression, Modern Times – though made almost a decade into the talkie era and containing moments of sound – is a timeless showcase of Chaplin’s untouchable genius as a director of silent comedy. Introduced by BU Professor of Russian and Comparative Humanities Nick Kupensky. Co-sponsored by the Bucknell University Comparative Humanities Program. Bucknell University Film/Media Studies Series - $2 admission
MR. PEABODY & SHERMAN (PG) - 92 min - Animation | Adventure | Comedy. Director: Rob Minkoff. Stars: Ty Burrell, Max Charles, Stephen Colbert. The time-travelling adventures of an advanced canine and his adopted son, as they endeavor to fix a time rift they created.
PAISAN (1946) (NR) 124 min. Drama. Director: Roberto Rossellini, Italy. Stars: Carmela Sazio, Robert Van Loon, Dots M. Johnson. Rossellini’s follow-up to Rome Open City (1945) consists of six episodes set during the liberation of Italy at the end of WWII and takes place across the country. With its documentary-like visuals and intermingled cast of actors and non-professionals, Italians and their American liberators, this moving look at the struggles of different cultures to communicate, and of people to live their everyday lives in extreme circumstances, is a treasure of Italian cinema, available only recently in its full original release version. English and Italian with English subtitles. Bucknell Univ. Film/Media Studies Course Screenings - Free & Open to the Public.
THE RULES OF THE GAME (1939) (NR) 106 min. 35mm Drama. Director: Jean Renoir, France. Stars: Marcel Dalio, Nora Gregor, Jean Renoir. One of the greatest films ever made, a scathing critique of corrupt French society cloaked in a comedy of manners set at a marquis’ country château – where ugly truths about a group of haut bourgeois acquaintances are laid bare. The film had a tumultuous history: it was subjected to cuts after the violent response at the premiere, the original negative was destroyed during World War II and it wasn’t reconstructed until 1959. The original version is presented here. French with English subtitles. Bucknell Univ. Film/Media Studies Course Screenings - Free & Open to the Public.
SWITCH (2012) (NR) 98 min. Documentary. Director: Harry Lynch, U.S. Join Dr. Scott Tinker on a global journey to find out how we’ve begun the shift to energy alter-natives that will shape our future. Exploring the world’s leading energy sites, from coal to solar, oil to biofuels – many highly restricted and never before filmed – Dr. Tinker gets straight answers from international leaders of government, industry and academia, unraveling complex problems to offer a path that is both surprising and remarkably pragmatic. Introduced by Dina El-Mogazi, Director of the BUEC’s Campus Greening Initiative. Co-sponsored by the Bucknell University Environmental Center. Bucknell University Film/Media Studies Series - $2 admission
THE WIND RISES (PG-13) 126 min - Animation | Biography | Drama . Director: Hayao Miyazaki. Stars: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, John Krasinski, Emily Blunt. A look at the life of Jiro Horikoshi, the man who designed Japanese fighter planes during World War II. A 2013 Oscar Nominee for Best Animated Feature!
