CRACKS IN THE SHELL
DIE UNSICHTBARE
2012, 113 min, Germany, Dir: Christian Schwochow

Drama student Fine (Stine Fischer Christensen, AFTER THE WEDDING) is callously told by a coach that she's "invisible" - and then, in a miraculous turn of events, she's cast by a renowned director in the demanding role of Camille. As Fine transforms into a leading lady, the alarming consequences of fast fame set in - the role begins to absorb her, to the point that Fine's self-identity becomes horrifically fractured. A must-see for fans of Darren Aronofsky's BLACK SWAN, Christian Schwochow's psychological thriller was a festival favorite of 2011, garnering a Best Actress prize for Christensen at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival. In German with English subtitles.


THE BAD AND THE BEAUTIFUL
1952, Warner Bros., 118 min, USA, Dir: Vincente Minnelli

Hugely entertaining - and still on-target - drama of the relentless scramble to succeed in Hollywood, starring Kirk Douglas as producer Jonathan Shields, a born hustler who creates great movies while he alienates everyone who loves him – including Lana Turner as the alcoholic daughter of a Barrymore-like matinee idol, Barry Sullivan as a trusting young director and Dick Powell as a sharp-tongued screenwriter.
