A QUIET PASSION

Terence Davies

  • 126 minutes
  • Starts Friday May 26

    Reviews

    Cynthia Nixon delivers a triumphant performance as Emily Dickinson as she personifies the wit, intellectual independence and pathos of the poet whose genius only came to be recognized after her death. Acclaimed British director Terence Davies (House of Mirth, The Deep Blue Sea) exquisitely evokes Dickinson's deep attachment to her close knit family along with the manners, mores and spiritual convictions of her time that she struggled with and transcended in her poetry. A delicate and measured drama that plumbs the depths of the poet's strange heart and the agony of her intelligence.

ZABRISKIE POINT (1970)

Michelangelo Antonioni

  • 112 minutes
  • One Night Only!

    SUNDAY MAY 28 - 7pm

    Antonioni’s first American film is a bold and beautiful under-appreciated masterpiece. Mark is an armed student radical on the run. Daria is a restless young woman. Their meeting sparks a deep passion and haunting tragedy in this visually stunning docu-surrealist fantasia on the 60s counterculture. A hallucinatory dream-capsule of the revolutionary hippie movement in California. The grand and beautiful apocalyptic finale is one of cinema’s most extraordinary moments. Music by Pink Floyd.

CHUCK

Philippe Falardeau

  • 101 minutes
  • Starts Friday June 2

    He was the pride of Bayonne, New Jersey, a man who went fifteen rounds in the ring with Muhammad Ali, and the real life inspiration for Rocky Balboa. But before all that, Chuck Wepner (Liev Schreiber) was a liquor salesman and father with a modest prizefighting career whose life changed overnight when, in 1975, he was chosen to take on The Greatest in a highly publicized title match. It's the beginning of a wild ride through the exhilarating highs and humbling lows of sudden fame-but what happens when your fifteen minutes in the spotlight are up? Driven by a committed performance from Liev Schreiber, Chuck is a refreshingly human tale of resilience and redemption. Elisabeth Moss and Naomi Watts costar.
