MR. AND MRS. BRIDGE
1990, Park Circus/Miramax, 126 min, UK/USA/Canada, Dir: James Ivory

In Merchant Ivory’s MR. AND MRS. BRIDGE, change sweeps into the traditionalist world of an aging, well-to-do American couple. Besieged by a progressive cultural climate and by his adult children’s attempts at autonomy in 1940s Missouri, patriarch Walter (Paul Newman) struggles to retain a rapidly eroding sense of order. His only ally in this battle, submissive wife India (Joanne Woodward), is no less subject to his domestic tyranny, however. In this adaptation of two Evan S. Connell novels, screenwriter Ruth Prawer Jhabvala delivers her customary restraint, brought to the screen with a quiet authenticity by real-life couple Newman and Woodward.

THE CITY OF YOUR FINAL DESTINATION
2009, Screen Media Films, 117 min, USA, Dir: James Ivory

After winning a grant to write a biography of Hispanic author Jules Gund, Iranian-American student Omar (Omar Metwally) must travel to Uruguay and convince the family to give him permission. Omar finds more than expected as he tries to persuade the late writer's brother (Anthony Hopkins), wife (Laura Linney) and mistress (Charlotte Gainsbourg). A complex look at loss, THE CITY OF YOUR FINAL DESTINATION is a moving drama from director James Ivory.
