Can You Ever Forgive Me?

View Screenings

Film Description:

Can You Ever Forgive Me? is a low-stakes crime and affectionate drama, based on a true story, about a writer’s audacious hustle to stay afloat in the literary circles of 90’s New York City. Melissa McCarthy and Richard E. Grant were both nominated for Golden Globe® awards for their performances in the film.

In Can You Ever Forgive Me?, Melissa McCarthy stars as Lee Israel, the best-selling celebrity biographer (and cat lover) who made her living in the 1970’s and 80’s profiling the likes of Katharine Hepburn, Tallulah Bankhead, Estée Lauder and journalist Dorothy Kilgallen. When Lee found herself unable to get published because she had fallen out of step with the marketplace, she turned her art form to deception, abetted by her loyal friend Jack (Richard E. Grant). [2018, US, 107 minutes, Rated: PG-13].

“A beautifully nuanced drama of human comedy,” writes Ty Burr of The Boston Globe. Ann Hornaday of The Washington Post singles McCarthy out for praise, writing, “the actress brings her dowdiest, most disagreeable A-game to a caustically funny, improbably affecting enterprise.” When awards season comes, Can You Ever Forgive Me? will surely be one of the films everyone is talking about, so don’t miss your chance to catch it at the Cinema Art Theater!

Ben is Back

View Screenings

Film Description:

Ben Is Back is a timely and powerful drama, featuring a star-studded cast (including Julia Roberts), that delves into a family’s struggle with their son’s addiction.  19-year-old Ben Burns (Lucas Hedges) unexpectedly returns to his family’s suburban home on Christmas Eve morning. Ben’s mother, Holly (Roberts), is relieved and welcoming but wary of her son staying clean. Over a day, new truths are revealed, and a mother’s undying love for her son is tested, as she does everything in her power to keep him safe. Ben is Back also stars Courtney B. Vance (The People V. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story) and Kathryn Newton (Lady Bird). [2018, US, 103 minutes, Rated: R].

“Through it all, though, there’s the magnificence of Julia Roberts, and the fine performances from Hedges, Vance and the rest of the cast. They do great justice to this finely constructed slice of fractured family life,” writes Richard Roeper of The Chicago Sun-Times. Michael Phillips of The Chicago Tribune praises Hedges’ performance, writing, “nobody in American movies today can get at the beating heart of a conflicted, hurting post-adolescent the way Lucas Hedges can.”

Please note that tickets are non-refundable and may not be exchanged for other screening dates/times or film title.

The Wife

View Screenings

Film Description:

The Wife is the complex and unflinching story of a woman growing out of the shadow of her husband’s success, anchored by fine performances from Jonathan Pryce and Glenn Close, for which Close won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture. After nearly forty years of marriage, Joan and Joe Castleman (Close and Pryce) are complements. Where Joe is casual, Joan is elegant. Where Joe is vain, Joan is self-effacing. And where Joe enjoys his very public role as Great American Novelist, Joan pours her considerable intellect, grace, charm, and diplomacy into the private role of a great man’s wife. Joe is about to be awarded the Nobel Prize for his acclaimed and prolific body of work. Joe's literary star has blazed since he and Joan first met in the late 1950s. The Wife interweaves the story of the couple's youthful passion and ambition with a portrait of a marriage, thirty-plus years later—a lifetime's shared compromises, secrets, betrayals, and mutual love. [2018, US/UK/Sweden, 100 minutes, Rated: R].

“The movie features a terrific performance by Jonathan Pryce and a flat-out brilliant one from Glenn Close, who dials up a slow burn for the ages,” writes Bill Goodykoontz of The Arizona Republic. "The Wife pulls off the not inconsiderable feat of spinning a fundamentally literary premise into an intelligent screen drama that unfolds with real juice and suspense,” writes Ben Kenigsberg of The New York Times.

Please note that tickets are non-refundable and may not be exchanged for other screening dates/times or film title.

Roma

View Screenings

Film Description:

The Golden Globe®-winner for Best Foreign Language Motion Picture Roma, is a remarkable autobiographical drama about the life of a young woman caring for a well-to-do family in 1970s Mexico. Director Alfonso Cuaron won the Golden Globe for Best Director for this film. 

The most personal project to date from Cuarón (Gravity, Children of Men, Y Tu Mama Tambien), Roma follows Cleo (Yalitza Aparicio), a young domestic worker for a family in the neighborhood of Roma in Mexico City. Delivering an artful love letter to the women who raised him, Cuarón draws on his own childhood to create a vivid and emotional portrait of domestic strife and social hierarchy amidst political turmoil of the 1970s. [2018, Mexico/US, in Spanish with English subtitles, 135 minutes, Rated: R].

“One of the year’s very finest achievements…Roma casts a spell and re-creates a specific time, place and collection of personal memories in ways that will connect with millions,” writes Michael Phillips of The Chicago Tribune. “Roma is one of the best movies I’ve ever seen, and one of the most moving,” writes Joe Morgenstern of The Wall Street Journal.

Please note that tickets are non-refundable and may not be exchanged for other screening dates/times or film title.
