Roberto Minervini (Italy/US/France 2018) 123 min. DCP.

Billy Wilder (U.S. 1942) 101 min. 35MM. With Ginger Rogers, Ray Milland, Rita Johnson, Robert Benchley.

Wilder’s first film as a director brilliantly posits Rogers as a disillusioned New York career woman “who masquerades as a pigtailed l2-year-old innocent in order to avoid paying full adult fare on the train home to Iowa. Very funny stuff as she meets [Ray] Milland’s protective major, and finds ambiguous refuge in his sleeping compartment… she is forced to accompany him to the military academy where he instructs, and becomes mascot to a horde of hopefully lecherous cadets. Pretty irresistible… with Rogers doing a beautiful job of dovetailing sexual provocation and demure innocence.” – Time Out (London)

Tom Hanks portrays Mister Rogers in A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD, a timely story of kindness triumphing over cynicism, based on the true story of a real-life friendship between Fred Rogers and journalist Tom Junod. After a jaded magazine writer (Emmy winner Matthew Rhys) is assigned a profile of Fred Rogers, he overcomes his skepticism, learning about empathy, kindness, and decency from America's most beloved neighbor.

Pain and Glory tells of a series of reencounters experienced by Salvador Mallo, a film director in his physical decline. Some of them in the flesh, others remembered: his childhood in the 60s, when he emigrated with his parents to a village in Valencia in search of prosperity, the first desire, his first adult love in the Madrid of the 80s, the pain of the breakup of that love while it was still alive and intense, writing as the only therapy to forget the unforgettable, the early discovery of cinema, and the void, the infinite void that creates the incapacity to keep on making films. Pain and Glory talks about creation, about the difficulty of separating it from one's own life and about the passions that give it meaning and hope. In recovering his past, Salvador finds the urgent need to recount it, and in that need he also finds his salvation.

Geisinger ADMI* presents: Abominable (PG) 97 min.

ADMISSION IS FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!

When teenage Yi (Chloe Bennet, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) encounters a young Yeti on the roof of her apartment building in Shanghai, she and her mischievous friends, Jin (Tenzing Norgay Trainor) and Peng (Albert Tsai), name him "Everest" and embark on an epic quest to reunite the magical creature with his family at the highest point on Earth. But the trio of friends will have to stay one-step ahead of Burnish (Eddie Izzard), a wealthy man intent on capturing a Yeti, and zoologist Dr. Zara (Sarah Paulson) to help Everest get home.

Bucknell University Film Series: Touch Of Evil

Monday, 1/27

7:00 PM

Admission is FREE & open to the public!

Orson Welles (U.S. 1958) 111 min. 35MM. With Charlton
Heston, Janet Leigh, Orson Welles.

A bomb rolls into a small, seedy border town in one of cinema’s most astounding opening shots. The ensuing thriller – Welles’ monstrously corrupt detective investigates, with the help of a Mexican narc (Heston) recently wed to Janet Leigh – is the stuff of a deliriously grotesque noir nightmare. “The tallest tree in the wilderness of Welles’ post-Kane career! The dialogue is as intricately overlapped as the lighting is cross-hatched; the cameos are as vivid as possible in a black-and-white movie; the camera work and blocking have the coordination of an Olympic pole vaulter” (J. Hoberman).

Bucknell University Film Series: MÄDCHEN IN UNIFORM

Tuesday, 1/28

7:00 PM

Admission is FREE & open to the public!

Leontine Sagan (Germany 1931) 88 min. DCP. With Dorothea Wieck, Hertha Thiele, Emilia Unda. With German with English subtitles. 

 

Starring an all-female cast, Mädchen in Uniform is an enduring classic of lesbian cinema. A sensitive new arrival at a school for the daughters of military officers becomes hopelessly smitten with a charismatic teacher, eliciting the wrath of the headmistress. Made on the eve of Nazi ascendance, the film stands as a nuanced parable of authoritarianism, yet it’s also a moving portrait of burgeoning sapphic desire, rendered with great technical skill. “With this work the pre-war German sound film reached its highest level,” the film historian Lotte Eisner observed. “Leontine Sagan, a stage-actress… brings out the unselfconscious naïvety of the boarders’ confidences whispered across the dormitory, and the flush of love trembling in the cracked voice of the adolescent” (Adapted from Film at Lincoln Center notes). Co-presented with Bucknell’s Womens and Gender Studies program. Introduced by Literary Studies graduate student Emma Downey.
