Cinema Art Theater: THIS WEEK

Film at CAT - Ottolenghi and the Cakes of Versailles

View Screenings

“Ottolenghi and the Cakes of Versailles” is a mouth-watering documentary that follows a famous chef who is tasked with the one of the biggest challenges of his career.

Join the journey of celebrity chef Yotam Ottolenghi on his quest to bring the sumptuous art and decadence of Versailles to life in cake form at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s “Visitors to Versailles” exhibit. He assembles a team - a veritable who's who of the dessert world, including Dominique Ansel and Dinara Kasko - to help bring his vision to life. The pastry chefs create a true feast of Versailles complete with a cocktail whirlpool and posh jello shots, architectural mousse cakes, chocolate sculptures, swan pastries, and an edible garden. The film perfectly captures the heights of human achievement and the frailty of decadence, adding taste as one more sense with which to experience the Met. [2020, US, 75 min, Rated: NR].

Cameron Meier of “Orlando Weekly” remarks “The desserts - and the stories behind them - are delectable.”

Film at CAT - The Nest

View Screenings

“The Nest,” is a stunning drama about a family whose lives take a twisted turn after they move to a new country.

Rory (played by Jude Law), an ambitious entrepreneur and former commodities broker, persuades his American wife, Allison (played by Carrie Coon), and their children to leave the comforts of suburban America and return to his native England during the 1980s. Sensing opportunity, Rory rejoins his former firm and leases a centuries-old country manor, with grounds for Allison’s horses and plans to build a stable. Soon, as the promise of a lucrative new beginning starts to unravel, the couple have to face the unwelcome truths lying beneath the surface of their marriage. [2020, UK/Canada, 107 min, Rated: NR].

Brian Tallerico of “RogerEbert.com” pens “Director-Writer Sean Durkin's script gives Coon and Law the best characters of their careers and both actors completely deliver.” Jordan Ruimy of “World of Reel” says, "An artfully rendered take about the disintegration of a privileged family.”

Film at CAT - Blackbird

View Screenings

“Blackbird,” is a beautifully filmed drama that is the story of hope, humor, love and a celebration of life.

Lily (played by Susan Sarandon) and Paul (played by Sam Neill) summon their loved ones to their beach house for one final gathering after Lily decides to end her long battle with ALS on her own terms. The couple is planning a loving weekend complete with holiday traditions, but the mood becomes strained when unresolved issues surface between Lily and her daughters Jennifer (Kate Winslet) and Anna (Mia Wasikowska). Joining the collective farewell are Lily's son in law (played by Rainn Wilson), her lifelong friend, daughter's partner and grandson.  [2020, USA, 98 min, Rated: R].

Robbie Collin of the “Daily Telegraph (UK)” remarks “For all the narrowness of its brief, it may be the most beautifully complete film you will see all year.” Dwight Brown of “The National Newspaper Publishers Association” writes, "Considering the gravity of the subject matter, what's on view is surprisingly touching and disarming in the best ways.”

The story of a terminally ill woman (Susan Sarandon) summoning her family for one last weekend together treads familiar dramatic ground — but with a cast that boasts 12 Oscar, 13 Golden Globe and 5 Emmy nominations among them, it’s one first-class ride. Sarandon and Sam Neill, as her already-grieving husband, nearly burn holes in the screen with their mournful, piercing eyes. Add in Kate Winslet as the couple's "good" daughter and Mia Wasikowska as their less conventional one, plus The Office's Rainn Wilson as a nebbish son-in-law, and you have a cast that can't help but keep you riveted to a story you feel like you already know. Director Roger Michell (Notting Hill, Hyde Park on the Hudson) is just the guy to channel all this star power into an evocative family drama.

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