Join the French Consulate Los Angeles in celebrating two 2016 Oscar nominees: live-action short “Ave Maria” and foreign-language feature MUSTANG, whose director Deniz Gamze Ergüven appears in person for a post-film discussion.
Our tribute to the Oscars features two fantasies adapted from the work of Oscar Wilde. In THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY, the title character's portrait ages instead of him. Then Charles Laughton stars as THE CANTERVILLE GHOST, who haunts an English castle during WWII.
Two classic romances for Valentine's Day, both shot in glorious B&W by cinematographer Henri Alekan. First, a newly restored DCP of Jean Cocteau's BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, one of the most enchanting films ever made. Then, Wim Wenders’ WINGS OF DESIRE, which follows an angel having pangs of longing as he observes the lives of mortals in Berlin - specifically a beautiful trapeze artist.
A Valentine's Day double feature of romantic comedies by Woody Allen. First, his Oscar-winning ANNIE HALL, in which he stars as a neurotic comedian opposite Diane Keaton. Then,
THE PURPLE ROSE OF CAIRO, in which 1930s matinee idol Jeff Daniels walks down off the movie screen into sweet, adoring fan Mia Farrow’s life.
Enjoy one of the movies' greatest romances on Valentine's Day! Adapted from Truman Capote’s bestselling romance by director Blake Edwards. When Audrey Hepburn’s girl-about-town Holly Golightly meets handsome nice guy George Peppard, she begins to gradually rethink her anything-goes, high-living lifestyle.
FAST TIMES AND WILD WESTS: A SALUTE TO JENNIFER JASON LEIGH
Our tribute to Jennifer Jason Leigh includes two of her best performances in this double feature. In GEORGIA, she stars as a desperately untalented singer struggling in the shadows of her sister, a much-loved folk musician. Then she plays the title role in MRS. PARKER & THE VICIOUS CIRCLE, writer-director Alan Rudolph’s wonderful, sardonic portrait of the legendary Algonquin Round Table of the 1920s.
