PAIN AND GLORY

(DOLOR Y GLORIA)

2019, Spain, Sony Pictures Classics, 113 min. Dir. Pedro Almodóvar.

There is no shortage of comparisons between Fellini’s 8 ½ and Pedro Almodóvar’s latest work, PAIN AND GLORY. Like Fellini, Almodóvar draws upon his own life to construct the story of a director in decline. As Salvador Mallo, Antonio Banderas is a man caught between past and present, reliving the experiences that have shaped him while he grapples with addiction and a state of creative stasis. Yet Almodóvar’s portrait of the artist in limbo is characterized by the particular blend of sexuality, nostalgia and familial attachment that the Spanish auteur has made his signature.

A competitor for the Palme d’Or at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival - where Banderas received the Best Actor Award for his performance - PAIN AND GLORY is a confessional exploration of the toll that human relationships take and of the restorative power of creation.

In Spanish with English subtitles.

PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE

2019, France, Neon, 121 min. Dir. Céline Sciamma.

Winner of the Queer Palm and the Best Screenwriting Award at Cannes, PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE unfolds on a remote island off the coast of 18th-century Brittany. There, young painter Marianne is commissioned to create a portrait of reluctant bride-to-be Héloïse. She must do so in secret, however, posing as a lady’s companion because Héloïse refuses to sit for a portrait. As their hours together lengthen, Héloïse kindles a new flame in Marianne - one that time and circumstance will conspire to extinguish. This vividly shot and quietly turbulent film finds new possibilities in the age-old vein of forbidden love.

In French and Italian with English subtitles.

LES MISÉRABLES

2019, France, Amazon Studios, 102 min. Dir. Ladj Ly.

FREE screening with RSVP.

Discussion following the screening with director Ladj Ly.

In the Paris suburb where Victor Hugo set part of his 19th-century magnum opus, French filmmaker Ladj Ly tells an all-too-contemporary tale of crime and community. Inspired by the 2005 riots that set cars ablaze across France, Ly focuses his lens on a trio of police officers whose unorthodox tactics bring them into conflict with local youth. Heightening the tension are a drone’s probing eye and the threat that at any moment racial tensions will flare too high to be contained.

Winner of the Prix du Jury at 2019’s Cannes Film Festival, LES MISÉRABLES leverages documentary-style rawness and pulse-quickening momentum to stake its claim as an accomplished thriller concerned with social inequity and its corrosive effect on the rule of law.

In French with English subtitles.

PARASITE

(GISAENGCHUNG)

2019, South Korea, Neon, 132 min. Dir. Bong Joon Ho.

When Kim Ki-woo (Woo-sik Choi) agrees to take over from his friend as English tutor for the daughter of a wealthy family, the stage is set for an epic showdown as class warfare meets black comedy, with the stakes deadlier than you could ever imagine. Working with some of the most outstanding actors in South Korea, writer-director Bong Joon Ho (SNOWPIERCER, OKJA) crafts a brilliantly layered world filled with outstanding gasp-out-loud moments. An intricate blend of bravura sequences, stellar character work and narrative twists, PARASITE was the Palme d'Or winner at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival.

In Korean with English subtitles.

THE FAREWELL

2019, USA, A24, 100 min. Dir. Lulu Wang. 

Discussion following the screening with director Lulu Wang.

In this funny, uplifting tale based on an actual lie, Chinese-born, U.S.-raised Billi (Awkwafina) reluctantly returns to Changchun when she learns that her beloved grandmother, Nai Nai (Zhao Shuzhen), has been given mere weeks to live. While Billi’s family knows this, they have decided not to tell Nai Nai herself; to assure her happiness, they gather under the joyful guise of an expedited wedding, uniting family members scattered among new homes abroad. As Billi navigates a minefield of family expectations and proprieties, she finds there’s a lot to celebrate: a chance to rediscover the country she left as a child, her grandmother’s wondrous spirit, and the ties that keep on binding even when so much goes unspoken.
