ALICE DOESN'T LIVE HERE ANYMORE
1974, Warner Bros., 112 min, USA, Dir: Martin Scorsese

Ellen Burstyn won an Oscar for her performance as a widow and mother starting a new life in the American Southwest. This early Scorsese gem is a richly detailed character study in which Burstyn gets terrific support from Kris Kristofferson, Diane Ladd, Harvey Keitel and Jodie Foster.

2019, Amazon Studios, 110 min, Germany/India/USA, Dir: Ritesh Batra

Two lives intersect in Mumbai and go along together. A struggling street photographer (Nawazuddin Siddiqui), pressured to marry by his grandmother, convinces a shy stranger (Sanya Malhotra) to pose as his fiancée. The pair develops a connection that transforms them in ways that they could not expect. “Writer-director Ritesh Batra’s first Indian film since his debut feature has the same quiet streak of wistful sentimentality that made THE LUNCHBOX so globally beloved … Batra’s filmmaking has remained markedly consistent in tone and texture: You’d be hard pressed to find anyone making nicer films in world cinema right now.” – Guy Lodge, Variety.


BARCELONA
1994, Warner Bros., 101 min, USA, Dir: Whit Stillman

When two blithely self-absorbed young American cousins - stuffy salesman Ted (Taylor Nichols) and military officer Fred (Chris Eigeman) - meet in Barcelona, Spain, both are completely oblivious to their lack of cultural awareness as they discover romance in Whit Stillman’s literate comedy of manners.
