RBG

View Screenings

Film Description:

RBG is an inspiring documentary about the trail-blazing life of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.  At the age of 85, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has developed a lengthy legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. But the unique personal journey of her rise to the nation's highest court has been largely unknown, even to some of her biggest fans – until now. RBG explores Ginsburg's life and career. [2018, US, Runtime: 96 minutes, Rated: PG].

"An unforgettable film. No matter your political leanings, RBG tells a heartwarming tale of determination, resilience, and in the spotlight is the most unlikely rockstar," writes Zachary Kaplan of Parade. Robert Sullivan of Vogue adds, “What's surprising to a casual follower of the judicial branch is that you'll be reaching not for your legal pad while watching the film, but the tissues, given that what actually underpins RBG is a love story.”

Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot

View Screenings

Film Description:

Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot is a life-affirming dramatic comedy based upon the memoir of the same name by John Callahan. John Callahan (Joaquin Phoenix) has a lust for life, a talent for off-color jokes, and a drinking problem. When an all-night bender ends in a catastrophic car accident, the last thing he intends to do is give up drinking. But when he reluctantly enters treatment—with encouragement from his girlfriend (Rooney Mara) and a charismatic sponsor (Jonah Hill)—Callahan discovers a gift for drawing edgy, irreverent newspaper cartoons that develop an international following and grant him a new lease on life. Based on a true story, this poignant, insightful and often funny drama about the healing power of art is adapted from Callahan's autobiography and directed by two-time Oscar® nominee Gus Van Sant. Jack Black, Carrie Brownstein, Beth Ditto and Kim Gordon also star. [2018, US, Runtime: 113 minutes, Rated: R].

Justin Chang of The Los Angeles Times praises the film for its, “warmth, humor…and a rich vein of personal feeling”. David Rooney of The Hollywood Reporter calls the film, “consistently enjoyable… notable for its generosity of spirit and gentleness.”

Eighth Grade

View Screenings

Film Description:

Eighth Grade is a touching and hilarious examination of a shy, awkward girl looking for connection—online and in real life—as she confronts the realities of growing up. 

Thirteen-year-old Kayla endures the tidal wave of contemporary suburban adolescence as she makes her way through the last week of middle school—the end of her thus far disastrous eighth grade year—before she begins high school. [2018, US, Runtime: 94 minutes, Rated: R].

“Brave, striking, spectacular,” writes Adam Graham of The Detroit News. Ann Hornaday in her four-star review calls Eighth Grade, “note-perfect… a film that ultimately rejects dwelling on cruelty, choosing instead to reward the character and the audience with moments of genuine kindness”.

Puzzle

View Screenings

Film Description:

Puzzle is a heart-warming drama about a woman who finds new meaning in her life in an unexpected hobby: jigsaw puzzles.  Puzzle is a closely observed portrait of Agnes, who has reached her early 40s without ever venturing far from home, family or the tight-knit immigrant community in which she was raised by her widowed father. That begins to change in a quietly dramatic fashion when Agnes receives a jigsaw puzzle as a birthday gift and experiences the heady thrill of not only doing something she enjoys, but being very, very good at it.

Stepping out of her domestic bubble to pursue her new hobby, Agnes meets Robert, a wealthy, reclusive inventor who immediately recognizes her talent and recruits her as his partner for an upcoming world jigsaw tournament. Each day she spends out in the world, puzzling and conversing with Robert, takes Agnes further along on the road to a new understanding of herself and her strengths. With that understanding come new insights and an assertiveness that finds her speaking out on her own behalf and pushing back against the assumptions and routines that have until now defined her role in her family. Ultimately, Agnes will decide for herself what comes next. [2018, US, Runtime: 103 minutes, Rated: R].

“A lovely surprise,” writes Christy Lemire of RogerEbert.com, a million tiny revelations make up one massive arc, and Kelly Macdonald positively radiates hope and joy throughout that process”. Alan Scherstuhl of TheVillageVoice.com calls Puzzle an, “earnest, compassionate character study…likely to charm and move audiences”.

Sorry to Bother You

View Screenings

Film Description:

Sorry to Bother You is a surreal, zany, visually engrossing and scintillating comedic outburst about one man’s climb up the corporate ladder.  In an alternate present-day version of Oakland, black telemarketer Cassius Green (Lakeith Stanfield) discovers a magical key to professional success, which propels him into a macabre universe of "powercalling" that leads to material glory. But the upswing in Cassius' career raises serious red flags with his girlfriend Detroit (Tessa Thompson), a performance artist and minimum-wage striver who's secretly part of a Banksy-style activist collective. As his friends and co-workers organize in protest of corporate oppression, Cassius falls under the spell of his company's cocaine-snorting CEO Steve Lift (Armie Hammer), who offers him a salary beyond his wildest dreams. [2018, US, Runtime: 105 minutes, Rated: R].

“An outrageous satire that swings for the fences,” writes Alonso Duralde of TheWrap.com, “provocative, funny, impolite, meaningful and aimed squarely at the 2018 zeitgeist”. Richard Brody of The New Yorker calls Sorry to Bother You, “a scintillating comedic outburst of political imagination and visionary fury”.

Starts Friday, August 31.  (The full schedule of screenings will be posted Tuesday, August 28.)
