SYNOPSES OF UPCOMING FILMS

BERBERIAN SOUND STUDIO (2012) (NR) 90min. Drama/Horror. Director: Peter Strickland Stars: Toby Jones, Cosimo Fusco. A mild-mannered sound engineer arrives in Rome to supervise the soundtrack for a 1970s exploitation horror film called The Equestrian Vortex. But the film-within-the-film is never seen; instead it is left to our imaginations to supply visual analogues for the bloodcurdling screams, squishes, sizzles and splatters that we hear. The suggestive power of sound and an increasingly unhinged protagonist become ever more unsettling as the story’s line between cinema and reality blur Strickland’s meta-horror film, which established the director as an important new voice in British cinema. In English and Italian with English subtitles.  A BU Film Media Studies course screening - Free

THE MAGNIFICENT AMBERSONS (1942) (NR) 88min. 35mm. Drama. Director: Orson Welles. Stars: Joseph Cotten, Dolores Costello, Anne Baxter. Welles’ portrait of a midwestern town’s transformation amidst the onslaught of the industrial age “uses the full weight [of the director’s] Gothic style” to transform Booth Tarkington’s Pulitzer Prize winning novel into a “dark, almost nervous film” (James Naremore). As time inexorably passes, the aristocratic Ambersons remain stuck in a decaying past while Eugene Morgan (Cotten) invents the automobile and finds fortune. His frustrated love for Isabel Amberson (Costello) is mirrored in the next generation when his daughter meets Isabel’s bratty son at the grand Amberson ball.  A BU Film Media Studies course screening - Free

THE MAN FROM LARAMIE (1955) (NR) 104min. DCP. Drama. Director: Anthony Mann Stars: James Stewart, Arthur Kennedy, Donald Crisp.This emotionally intense Technicolor Western was shot on location in New Mexico, and was one of the first in the genre to be shot in CinemaScope. Stewart, in the last of his five collaborations with director Anthony Mann, plays a stranger investigating the circumstances around the death of his brother, who runs afoul of a cattle baron, his miscreant son and his foreman. A Sony Pictures release.  DCP – 4K Restoration!   Part of the BU Tuesday evening Film Series - $2

ST.  VINCENT (PG-13) 102 min, Comedy, Director: Theodore Melfi; Stars: Bill MurrayMelissa McCarthy & Naomi Watts.  Maggie, a single mother, moves into a new home in Brooklyn with her 12-year old son, Oliver. Forced to work long hours, she has no choice but to leave Oliver in the care of their new neighbor, Vincent, a retired curmudgeon with a penchant for alcohol and gambling. An odd friendship soon blossoms between the improbable pair.

SYNOPSES OF UPCOMING FILMS

ACTRESS  Director Robert Greene and Actress Brandy Burre in Person! (2014) (NR) 86min. DCP. Documentary. Director: Robert Greene Stars: Brandy Burre. Brandy Burre had a recurring role on HBO’s The Wire when she gave up her career to start a family. Director Robert Greene observes Burre as she decides to reclaim her life as an actor – and the domestic world she’s carefully created crumbles around her. Actress is at once the portrait of a complicated woman, performing the role of herself, and an at times unsettling fusion of the melodrama and cinema verité genres.  The film was regularly singled out as a highlight among the new films selected for the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s celebrated “Art of the Real” series last April.  Part of the BU Tuesday evening Film Series - $2

BIG HERO 6 (PG) 102 min, Animation/Family.  Directors: Don Hall, Chris Williams. Stars: Ryan Potter, Scott Adsit & Jamie Chung. "Big Hero 6" is an action-packed comedy-adventure about robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who learns to harness his genius-thanks to his brilliant brother Tadashi and their like-minded friends: adrenaline junkie Go Go Tamago, neatnik Wasabi, chemistry whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred. When a devastating turn of events catapults them into the midst of a dangerous plot unfolding in the streets of San Fransokyo, Hiro turns to his closest companion-a robot named Baymax-and transforms the group into a band of high-tech heroes determined to solve the mystery. (C) Disney

BIRDMAN (R) 119 min, Comedy/Drama.  Director: Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu. Stars: Michael Keaton, Edward Norton and Emma Stone.  BIRDMAN or The Unexpected Virtue Of Ignorance is a black comedy that tells the story of an actor (Michael Keaton) - famous for portraying an iconic superhero - as he struggles to mount a Broadway play. In the days leading up to opening night, he battles his ego and attempts to recover his family, his career, and himself. (c) Fox Searchlight 

THE BISHOP’S WIFE (1948) (NR) 109 min, Comedy/Drama.  Director: Henry Koster; Stars: Cary Grant and Loretta Young.  When Episcopalian bishop Henry Brougham  prays for divine guidance in his efforts to raise the necessary funds for a new cathedral, his prayers are answered in the form of a handsome, personable guardian angel named Dudley. Establishing himself as a Yuletide guest in the Brougham home, Dudley arouses the ire of Henry, who, unaware that his visitor is from Up Above, assumes that Dudley has designs on the bishop's wife Julia. Eventually, the lives of both Henry and Julia are agreeably altered by the presence of the affable angel.  Free w/can food donation - Sponsored by the Marinaccio’s

CHRISTMAS IN JULY (1940) (NR) 67min. 35mm. Comedy/Satire. Director: Preston Sturges Stars: Dick Powell, Ellen Drew, Raymond Walburn, William Demarest. Film critic Manny Farber called writer-director Preston Sturges "the most spectacular manipulator of sheer humor since Mark Twain." Christmas in July is an effervescent,  timelessly witty and satirical fable about a coffee company's advertising jingle contest that sharply debunks the American dream of overnight success; it is also one of the director’s emotionally richest and sweetest films, packed with the inevitable Sturgian wallop of compassion and emotion that will leave few viewers unaffected. Part of the BU Film Media Series - $2

ELF (2003) (PG) 97 min.  Comedy/Family/Fantasy.  Director: Jon Favreau.  Stars: Will Ferrell, James Caan, Bob Newhart.   After inadvertently wreaking havoc on the elf community due to his ungainly size, a man raised as an elf at the North Pole  is sent to the U.S. in search of his true identity.  Free w/Can food donation - Sponsored by Coldwell Banker Penn One Real Estate   

GERMANY YEAR ZERO (1948) (NR) 78min. Drama. Director: Roberto Rossellini Stars: Edmund Meschke, Franz Gruger, Ingetraude Hinze. German with English subtitles. The concluding chapter of Rossellini’s “War Trilogy” is the most devastating, a portrait of an obliterated Berlin seen through the eyes of a twelve-year-old boy. Living in a bombed-out apartment building with his sick father and two older siblings, young Edmund is mostly left to wander unsupervised, getting ensnared in the black-market schemes of a group of teenagers and coming under the nefarious influence of a Nazi-sympathizing ex-teacher.  A BU Film Media Studies course screening – Free

GOD’S STEP CHILDREN (1938) (NR) 105min. Drama. Director Oscar Micheaux Stars: Jacqueline Lewis, Ethel Moses, Alice B. Russell. A light-skinned woman rebels against her foster parents, bribes her way into the local white school, and–years later–finds herself living between two worlds and belonging to neither. A BU Film Media Studies course screening – Free

GRAND ILLUSION (1937) (NR) 114min. 35mm. Drama. Director Jean Renoir Stars: Jean Gabin, Pierre Fresnay, Erich von Stroheim, Marcel Dalio. One of the very first prison escape movies, Renoir’s anti-war masterpiece was partly inspired by stories of the air ace who saved the director’s life during the Great War.. A celebration of the brotherhood of man, across class and frontiers, as well a kind of elegy for an international aristocracy, the film stars Gabin and Fresnay as French soldiers held in a World War I German prison camp, and Erich von Stroheim as the unforgettable Captain von Rauffenstein. French with English subtitles. A BU Film Media Studies course screening – Free

HOME ALONE (1990) (PG) 103 min.  Comedy/Family .  Director: Chris Columbus; Stars: Macaulay Culkin, Joe Pesci & Daniel Stern.  An 8-year-old boy who is accidentally left behind while his family flies to France for Christmas must defend his home against idiotic burglars.  Free w/can food donation - Sponsored by RiverWoods Senior Living Community

INTERSTELLAR – in 35mm (PG-13), 169 min,  Adventure/Sci Fi.  Director: Christopher Nolan; Stars: Matthew McConaugheyAnne HathawayJessica Chastain.  A team of explorers travel through a wormhole in an attempt to find a potentially habitable planet that will sustain humanity.

KILLER OF SHEEP (1977) (NR) 82min. 35mm. Drama. Director: Charles Burnett Stars: Gayle Sanders, Kaycee Moore, Charles Bracy, Angela Burnett. Writer-director Charles Burnett examined the black Los Angeles ghetto of mid-70s Watts through the eyes of Stan, a sensitive dreamer growing detached from the psychic toll of working at a slaughterhouse yet finding moments of respite slow dancing with his wife in the living room and holding his daughter.  Compared by film critics to Italian neorealist films like Vittorio De Sica's The Bicycle Thief, Killer of Sheep was shot on location near Burnett’s family home with a mostly amateur cast of friends and acquaintances and documentary-style cinematography.  In 1990, the Library of Congress selected it as one of the first fifty films on the National Film Registry, and in 2002 the National Society of Film Critics named it one of the 100 Essential Films of all time – essential accolades for a film that had never been shown theatrically or made available on video due to the expense of music rights. Thanks to a UCLA Film and Television Archive restoration and Milestone Films, the film finally received an international release in 2007. Co-sponsored by Bucknell’s Center for the Study of Race, Ethnicity and Gender (CSREG).  A BU Film Media Studies course screening - Free

THE POLAR EXPRESS (2004) (PG ) 100 min   Animation; Director: Robert Zemeckis; Stars: Tom Hanks, Chris Coppola, Michael Jeter. On Christmas Eve, a doubting boy boards a magical train that's headed to the North Pole and Santa Claus' home.  Free w/Canned food donation -  Sponsored by Evangelical Community Hospital

ROSEWATER (R) 103 min Bio/Drama, Director: Jon Stewart; Stars:  Gael García BernalKim Bodnia & Dimitri Leonidas.  Rosewater follows the Tehran-born Bahari, a broadcast journalist with Canadian citizenship. In June 2009, Bahari returned to Iran to interview Mir-Hossein Mousavi, who was the prime challenger to president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. As Mousavi's supporters rose up to protest Ahmadinejad's victory declaration hours before the polls closed, Bahari endured personal risk by sending footage of the street riots to the BBC. Bahari was arrested by police, led by a man identifying himself only as "Rosewater," who tortured and interrogated him over the next 118 days. An interview and sketch that Maziar did on The Daily show was used as evidence that Maziar was a spy and in communication with the American government and the CIA. The film marks the directorial debut of "The Daily Show" host Jon Stewart

SKYLIGHT (Suitable for 15+)  2 hr 40 min    Bill Nighy (Love Actually, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel) and Carey Mulligan (Inside Llewyn Davis, The Great Gatsby) feature in the highly anticipated production of David Hare’s Skylight, directed by Stephen Daldry (The Audience), broadcast live from the West End by National Theatre Live.   On a bitterly cold London evening, schoolteacher Kyra Hollis (Carey Mulligan) receives an unexpected visit from her former lover, Tom Sergeant (Bill Nighy), a successful and charismatic restaurateur whose wife has recently died.  As the evening progresses, the two attempt to rekindle their once passionate relationship only to find themselves locked in a dangerous battle of opposing ideologies and mutual desires. Sponsored by Bucknell University’s Departments of Art and Art History, Classics, English, Theatre and Dance, the Bucknell Arts Council, the Bucknell Innovation Group and the Office of the Provost.  

ST.  VINCENT (PG-13) 102 min, Comedy, Director: Theodore Melfi; Stars: Bill MurrayMelissa McCarthy & Naomi Watts.  Maggie, a single mother, moves into a new home in Brooklyn with her 12-year old son, Oliver. Forced to work long hours, she has no choice but to leave Oliver in the care of their new neighbor, Vincent, a retired curmudgeon with a penchant for alcohol and gambling. An odd friendship soon blossoms between the improbable pair.

TOY STORY (1995) (G) 81min. Family. Director: John Lasseter Voices: Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Don Rickles, Jim Varney, Wallace Shawn. Pixar’s first feature, and the first feature created solely with computer-generated imagery, Toy Story proved a sensation, inspiring two sequels, two live stage adaptations and six theme park attractions. In a young boy’s bedroom, toys come to life when noone is looking; Pixar’s emotionally honest, exuberantly animated work delineates the now-iconic characters of Woody and Buzz Lightyear in a fable about friendship.  A BU Film Media Studies course screening – Free

Y TU MAMA TAMBIEN (2001) (NR) 106min. Drama. Director: Alfonso Cuarón Stars: Maribel Verdú, Gael García Bernal, Daniel Giménez Cacho. A decade before his Hollywood blockbuster Gravity, Cuarón made this provocative road movie, which follows the exploits of two teenage boys and an older, flirtatious female companion as they set off in search of a mythical beach but end up on a journey of self-discovery. The drama broke box-office records in Mexico and was a huge crossover hit in the U.S. Spanish with English subtitles. A BU Film Media Studies course screening – Free
