Cinema Art Theater: THIS WEEK

Film at CAT - The Father

View Screenings

“The Father,” is an extraordinary drama about a family coming to terms with the father’s Alzheimer’s symptoms.

Anthony (played by Anthony Hopkins) is 80, mischievous, living defiantly alone and rejecting the caretakers that his daughter, Anne (played by Olivia Coleman), encouragingly introduces. Yet help is also becoming a necessity for Anne; she can’t make daily visits anymore and Anthony's grip on reality is unravelling. As we experience the ebb and flow of his memory, how much of his own identity and past can Anthony cling to? How does Anne cope as she grieves the loss of her father, while he still lives and breathes before her? “The Father” warmly embraces real life, through loving reflection upon the vibrant human condition; heart-breaking and uncompromisingly poignant – a movie that nestles in the truth of our own lives. The film has earned six Oscar® nominations including Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Supporting Actress. It is also a 2021 BAFTA award winner for Best Leading Actor and Best Screenplay. [2020, UK, 97 min, Rated: PG-13].

Owen Fleiberman of “Variety” notes, “Anthony Hopkins is stunning. Florian Zeller makes his auspicious debut as a feature-film director.” David Ehrlich of “Indiewire” says, “Entrancingly different – brought to life by a handful of brilliant performances and some very impressive sleight-of-hand.”

Film at Cat - Nomadland

View Screenings

“Nomadland,” is a breathtaking drama about a widow in her sixties who embarks on a life-altering journey.

Following the economic collapse of a small town industry in rural Nevada, Fern (Frances McDormand) packs her van and sets off on the road exploring a life outside of conventional society as a modern-day nomad. The third feature film from director Chloé Zhao, the film features real nomads Linda May, Swankie and Bob Wells as Fern’s mentors and comrades in her exploration through the vast and beautiful landscape of the American West. The film is a Golden Globe winner for Best Picture and Best Director. It has six Oscar nominations including Best Picture and Best Director. [2020, US, 108 min, Rated: R].

Lidija Haas of “The New Republic” says, “’Nomadland’ treats its subjects with respect and curiosity. Their misfortunes are not used to objectify or other them, as often happens in movies about an impoverished subculture.” Nandini Ramnath of “Scroll.in” writes “A piercing portrayal of displacement and self-discovery.”

Film at CAT - Six Minutes to Midnight

View Screenings

“Six Minutes to Midnight” is a gripping pre-World War II drama based on a true story about a teacher secretly trying to find out about the demise of his predecessor.

In the Summer of 1939, influential families in Nazi Germany are sending their daughters to a finishing school in an English seaside town to learn the language and become ambassadors for a future looking National Socialist program. A teacher at the school senses what is coming and tries to raise the alarm. But the authorities believe he is the problem. The film offers incredible cinematography and riveting performances by Judy Dench and Eddie Izzard. [2020, UK, 102 min, Rated: NR].

Cate Marquis of “St. Louis Jewish Light” writes, “’Six Minutes to Midnight” offers fine historical spy thriller entertainment, solid performances and a glimpse into a little-known, unsettling bit of British history.”
