Brigsby Bear
Oct 18 @ 7:30 pm

(US, 2017) Director: Dave McCary. Screenplay by Kevin Costello and Kyle Mooney. Cast: Kyle Mooney, Greg Kinnear, Matt Walsh, Michaela Watkins, Mark Hamill, Claire Danes, Jane Adams.

25-year-old James is not so different from his peers, living in his parents’ basement, and spending his time watching and commenting online on his favorite TV show: Brigsby Bear, featuring a fuzzy bear who doles out advice like ‘curiosity is bad.’ What James (Kyle Mooney of SNL) doesn’t know is that his favorite show is made by his kidnappers, who keep him in an underground bunker – until the FBI breaks in and sets him free. It’s a brave new world for James, as he meets his bio-family, and tries to make his own movie about Brigsby Bear that, in spite of everything, he still misses. A completely original dark comedy by the Good Neighbor Troupe of Dave McCary, Kevin Costello and Kyle Mooney. 100 min
“It might feel outlandish if it weren’t a mere exaggeration of how almost all of us have grown up in front of the screen…” – Emily Yoshida, New York magazine.

Wind River
Oct 19 @ 7:30 pm

(US, 2017) Written and directed by Taylor Sheridan. Cast: Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Gil Birmingham, Jon Bernthal, Julia Jones, Kelsey Asbille.

On a snow-blinding tundra in Wyoming, a young Native American woman runs away from her attacker, only to collapse from breathing in the sub-zero air. This haunting opening scene gives writer/director Taylor Sheridan (writer of Hell or High Water) a hard act to follow. The fact that he does is thanks to his neo-70s style of filmmaking, one that takes time away from the action to observe its characters and the (damaged) world they live in. When the FBI sends in a rookie agent from Las Vegas (Elizabeth Olsen) to investigate, she teams up with the wildlife control officer who found the body – played with a wary intensity by Jeremy Renner. Taylor Sheridan won the Cannes Film Festival’s Un Certain Regard Prize that recognizes new voices in cinema. 107 min.

“An impressive effort and result that opens up a world that most of us have never thought about, and renders it with sorrow and vividness.” – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle.

Bolshoi Ballet: Le Corsaire (Live)
Oct 22 @ 12:55 pm

(Russia, 2014) Choreography by Alexei Ratmansky, Yuri Burlaka, based on the ballet by Marius Petipa. Original libretto: Jules Henri Vernoy de Saint-Georges. With the music of Leo Delibes, Cesare Pugni, Pyotr von Oldenburg, and more. The cast includes the stars and corps de ballet of the Bolshoi Ballet.

Pirates! True love! Exotic harem girls (and boys)! A shipwreck! It’s no wonder that Le Corsaire, based on a poem by Lord Byron and created in Paris in 1856, has remained popular through its many revivals, including the classic 1899 version by the Maryinsky’s Marius Petipa – and today, The Bolshoi’s Alexei Ratmansky. Even so, few balletomanes have seen all of Le Corsaire, having only caught its famous pas de deux, which has been performed by great partners, including Fontaine and Nureyev, Kirkland and Baryshnikov, and Zakharova and Zelensky. Indulge yourself in a full-length ballet with glorious music, costumes, thrills, and of course, the Bolshoi’s exquisite dancers. “I can say with absolute confidence that The Bolshoi Ballet are nothing short of magnificent!” – Belinda Williamson, Dance Magazine. 3 hours 33 min.

Diary of a Chambermaid
Oct 22 @ 5:00 pm

(France, 1964) Director: Luis Buñuel. Screenplay: Claude Carrière and Buñuel, based on the novel by Octave Mirbeau.
Cast: Jeanne Moreau, Michel Piccoli, Georges Géret.

July brought the death of Jeanne Moreau, one of France’s most iconic and loved stars. Born in Paris, she triumphed in films by just about every great director: François Truffaut (Jules and Jim), Michelangelo Antonioni (La Notte), Louis Malle (The Lovers), Wim Wenders (Until the End of the World) Rainer Werner Fassbinder (Querelle), Orson Welles (Chimes At Midnight) and of course, Luis Buñuel, with whom she shared a subversive sense of humor. See her in this restoration of a gorgeous, widescreen film that skewers three of Buñuel’s favorite targets: class, hypocrisy & religion. Sent to work as a chambermaid at a country estate, Moreau is shocked by her employers, from the foot-fetishist patriarch to the overly curious priest…until she learns to manipulate her ‘betters’ to her own advantage.
“A new kind of heroine, whose glamour had no gloss, whose elegance had no airs, who burst constraints with every word she spoke, every glance she shot, every step she took.” -. Richard Brody, the New Yorker.

The Architects with director Peter Kahane
Oct 26 @ 7:30 pm

(East Germany, 1990) Director: Peter Kahane. Screenplay by Peter Kahane, based on a story by Thomas Knauf. Cast: Kurt Naumann, Rita Feldmeier, Uta Eisold, Jürgen Watzke.

Acclaimed German director Peter Kahane will attend the special screening of his illuminating portrait of life in East Berlin in the 1980s, when Communist dogma still held a strangle hold on the population. One of the first movies to deal with the experience of both East Germany and unification, it stars as a young architect whose life and goals are strangled by brutal limitations of the older generation. Obsessed by his new vision for a cultural center, he battles the authorities, even as his wife and young daughter concentrate on escaping to West Germany. As a witness to history, The Architects is remarkable: made just before and after the Berlin Wall fell, the crew had to rebuild parts of the Wall to shoot the final scenes. 107 min. Sponsored by Trinity College German Studies Program.
“MORE THAN ANY FILM IN RECENT MEMORY, IT PORTRAYS THE DESTRUCTIVE IMPACT THAT A SPIRITUALLY COLD ENVIRONMENT CAN HAVE ON THE HUMAN SPIRIT.” — THE NEW YORK TIMES.

Logan Lucky
Oct 27 @ 7:30 pm

(US, 2017) Director: Steven Soderbergh. Cast: Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Farrah Mackenzie, Riley Keough, Daniel Craig, Katie Holmes, Charles Halford, Katherine Waterston, Dwight Yoakam, Hilary Swank.

Master of the heist Steven Soderbergh (the Ocean’s franchise) is back with his first film in four years, but this time his thieves are down-at-heel, down home denizens of small town West Virginia. Ringleader Channing Tatum is an out of work former jock who cooks up a whacked-out scheme to rob a NASCAR racetrack in North Carolina (it involves underground tunnels and Gummy Bears.) His accomplices are his younger brother (Adam Driver), an Iraq vet who lost an arm but makes a mean martini; his spark plug of a sister (Riley Keough), and an amusing Daniel Craig as the brains of the posse (who first has to be busted out of prison). Funny, smart, with a touch of political satire, Logan Lucky is a nod to red state desperados, looking for any way up and out. 119 min.
“Logan Lucky is a magnificent movie that comes disguised as a modest one.” – Stephanie Zacharek , Time Magazine.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show
Oct 27 @ 10:30 pm

If you find yourself stranded with a flat tire on a cold & rainy night, walk to a nearby castle – or a movie theater that looks like one – for a celebration of all things Transylvanian and/or transsexual! Starting back in 1976, Cinestudio began screening late shows of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, as growing audiences shouted out favorite lines, dressed in character, and even flung pieces of bread. Join Brad (Barry Bostwick) and Janet (Susan Sarandon) as they undergo all manner of horrors and delights, hosted by the irresistible Dr. Frank N. Furter (Tim Curry). 100 min.
This year, we welcome back the Boston-based TESERACTE PLAYERS in a shadow-cast performance in full costume!
Presented by Moonlight Movies at Trinity College. Remember, “Don’t dream it – be it.”
