SYNOPSES OF UPCOMING FILMS

 

*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.  For more information on the program and productions, see htt;://ntlive.nationaltheatre.org.uk/  No advanced ticket purchases.  Doors open at 12:30.  Admission:  Adults, $15; Seniors, $12; Students $10, with student ID $5.

 

*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

 

*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

 

*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

 

ME AND EARL AND THE DYING GIRL (PG-13)  105 min.  Comedy/Drama.  Director: Alfonso Gomez-Rejon.  Stars: Thomas MannRJ CylerOlivia Cooke.  A coming-of-age movie with uncommon charm and insight.  2015 Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize winner!  High schooler Greg, who spends most of his time making parodies of classic movies with his co-worker Earl, finds his outlook forever altered after befriending a classmate who has just been diagnosed with cancer.

*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.

Wednesday, September 16,  7:30pm (Box Office Opens at 6:30pm) – Cimarrón (World Music from Colombia) - From the cattle rearing Llanos Orientales region of Colombia, Cimarrón performs the festive joropo, a fiercely virtuoso display of rippling melodies and powerful rhythms, combining Andalusian, Indigenous Indian and African roots. Led by harpist Carlos Rojas, the musicians explore and experiment with their rich heritage while retaining the essence of the tradition, and the musical fireworks created by harp, bandola, cuatro, bass, cajon, maracas and high-pitched voices are simply breathtaking. Adults: $10, Seniors 62+ and Subscribers: $8, Youth 18 and Under: $5, Bucknell Employees and Retirees (limit 2) $5, Bucknell Students: FREE!, Non-Bucknell College Students (limit 2): $5.

Wednesday, September 30,  7:30pm (Box Office Opens at 6:30pm; Doors Open at 7:00pm) – TANYA TAGAQ in Concert with Nanook of the North (Inuit World Music/Film) – Inuit throat singer, improviser and 2014 Polaris Music Prize winner Tanya Tagaq reclaims the controversial 1922 silent film classic Nanook of the North. Nanook of the North is considered the world's first major work of non-fiction filmmaking, yet it is rife with contradictions. The film portrays the lives of an Inuk family in Arctic Canada. Its director, Robert Flaherty, lived and worked with Inuit for years, but still included staged scenes of buffoonery and feigned Inuit ignorance of modern accoutrements. Tagaq, along with percussionist Jean Martin and violinist Jesse Zubot, performs a live accompaniment to the film's silent images of life in an early 20th-century Inuit community in Northern Quebec. Adults: $10, Seniors 62+ and Subscribers: $8, Youth 18 and Under: $5, Bucknell Employees and Retirees (limit 2) $5, Bucknell Students: FREE!, Non-Bucknell College Students (limit 2): $5. http://www.Bucknell.edu/BoxOffice or 570-577-1000.

SYNOPSES OF UPCOMING FILMS

AMY (R)  128 min.   As riveting as it is sad, Amy is a powerfully honest look at the twisted relationship between art and celebrity -- and the lethal spiral of addiction.  Documentary,BiographyMusic.  Director: Asif Kapadia.   Stars: Amy Winehouse.  The story of Amy Winehouse in her own words, featuring unseen archival footage and unheard tracks.

THE BIG LEBOWSKI (1998 – R) 118 min. Comedy. Directors: Ethan and Joel Coen. Stars: Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, Julianne Moore.  “The Dude abides.” "The Dude," Jeffrey Lebowski, mistaken for a millionaire Lebowski, seeks restitution for his ruined rug and enlists his bowling buddies to help get it and finds himself in the middle of an intricate story of ransom, fraud, White Russians and nihilists. Part of the BIG LEBOWSKI DUDEFEST Saturday, September 19th.  Tickets are $10 for the general public and $7 for CT Members. LIMITED TICKETS AVAILABLE! Buy them online while they last at CampusTheatre.org. All proceeds benefit the Campus Theatre. For information and inquiries, email [email protected]

BUTCH CASSIDY & THE SUNDANCE KID (1969 – PG)  110 min. Very funny in a strictly contemporary way-the last exuberant word on movies about the men of the mythic American West who have outlived their day. Western/Action/Adventure.  Director: George Roy Hill.   Stars: Paul Newman and Robert Redford.  Two Western bank/train robbers flee to Bolivia when the law gets too close. General Admission $5; Free for Campus Theatre Members. (Members please show your Membership card at the check-in table and sign in.)

*CREMASTER 2 (1999 – NR) 79 min. 35MM. Director: Matthew Barney. Cast: Matthew Barney and Norman Mailer. A gothic Western that introduces conflict into the system. On the biological level, this stage in Barney's epic cycle corresponds to the phase of fetal development during which sexual division begins. Cremaster 2's looping narrative shifts from 1977, the year of Gary Gilmore's execution, to 1893 when Harry Houdini, who may have been Gilmore's grandfather, performed at the World's Columbian Exposition   FREE

*LE JOLI MAI (1963 - NR)  145 min. Documentary. Directors: Chris Marker and Pierre Lhomme. Translated as The Lovely Month of May, Chris Marker and Pierre Lhomme take to the streets in their sardonic survey of Paris circa 1962. Emboldened by the technological possibilities of lightweight, synchronized sound filmmaking, Marker and Lhomme fix their verité eyes and ears on Parisians as they muse on, pontificate about and blissfully ignore the politics of the day. If the early 20th century gave birth to the city symphony, a cycle of films celebrating the marvels of the modern metropolis, Le Joli Mai ups the ante—giving viewers a pointed portrait of the quotidian details and pre-’68 tensions of everyday life. Be prepared for some cacophonous music.

ME AND EARL AND THE DYING GIRL (PG-13)  105 min.   A coming-of-age movie with uncommon charm and insight.  2015 Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize winner!  Comedy, Drama.  Director: Alfonso Gomez-Rejon.  Stars: Thomas MannRJ CylerOlivia Cooke.  High schooler Greg, who spends most of his time making parodies of classic movies with his co-worker Earl, finds his outlook forever altered after befriending a classmate who has just been diagnosed with cancer.

MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE ROGUE NATION (PG-13)  131 min.   Has the snap, shock, and verve to rival modern blockbusters while giving a nod to the retro-cool original series.  Action, AdventureThriller.  Director: Christopher McQuarrie.  Stars: Tom CruiseRebecca FergusonJeremy Renner.  Ethan and team take on their most impossible mission yet, eradicating the Syndicate - an International rogue organization as highly skilled as they are, committed to destroying the IMF.

MR. HOLMES (PG) 104 min.   What Ian McKellen does with Arthur Conan Doyle's fictional detective in Mr. Holmes is nothing short of magnificent.  CrimeDramaMystery.  Director: Bill Condon.  Stars: Ian McKellenLaura Linney.  An aged, retired Sherlock Holmes looks back on his life, and grapples with an unsolved case involving a beautiful woman.

*NT LIVE: EVERYMAN (PG) 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.

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. 

RICKI AND THE FLASH (PG-13) 101 min.  One of the greatest actresses on the planet letting her hair down and having a good time - Streep is pitch-perfect!   ComedyDramaMusic.  Director: Jonathan Demme.  Stars: Meryl StreepKevin Kline.  A musician who gave up everything for her dream of rock-and-roll stardom returns home, looking to make things right with her family.

SHAUN THE SHEEP (PG) 85 min.   Warm, funny, and brilliantly animated, Shaun the Sheep is yet another stop-motion jewel of a movie!  AnimationAdventureComedy. Directors: Mark BurtonRichard Starzak.

A mix up with the Farmer, a caravan and a very steep hill lead them all to the Big City and it's up to Shaun and the flock to return everyone safely to the green grass of home.

TRAINWRECK (R)  125 min.  Fresh and funny, Trainwreck steams into the station, bringing with it high energy, wit, all shades of humour and an endearing brashness common to the Judd Apatow brand of romcom.  ComedyRomance.  Director: Judd Apatow.  Stars: Amy SchumerBill Hader.  Having thought that monogamy was never possible, a commitment-phobic career woman may have to face her fears when she meets a good guy.
