DARK HORSE
Sep 27 @ 7:30 pm

(UK, 2016) Written and directed by Louise Osmond. With: Brian Vokes, Janet Vokes, Dream Alliance.

Dark Horse has taken the famously animal loving British public by storm, with its true story of a depressed, former coal-mining village in Wales that puts its faith in a winner. It begins as bartender and cleaner Jan Vokes, ignoring the fact that horse racing is ‘the sport of kings,’ makes up her mind to breed a champion steeplechaser. She convinces her husband Brian and 23 friends in a workingmen’s club to join in her impossible quest. Soon the entire village gets behind the purchase and training of Dream Alliance, a foal who was bred from ‘a crazy brood mare,’ and raised on a ‘slag heap allotment,’ but who they hope will run just as fast as thoroughbreds owned by the upper crust.

“This British documentary is a delightful story well told – and, like so many good stories, it begins with a dream.” – Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times.

FLORENCE FOSTER JENKINS
Sep 28 @ 7:30 pm

(UK, 2016) Directed by Stephen Frears. Screenplay by Nicholas Martin. Cast: Meryl Streep, Hugh Grant, Simon Helberg, Rebecca Ferguson, Nina Arianda, Brid Brennan.

Don’t be surprised if Meryl Streep wins a (well-deserved) 20th Oscar nomination for her hilarious star turn as the real-life 1940s entertainer, Florence Foster Jenkins. In her first collaboration with director Stephen Frears (Dangerous Liaisons, The Queen, and Philomena.), Streep walks a tricky tightrope, mixing campy glee with human dignity, as a deluded diva who believes she is a talented singer, while she is anything but. Her fusty husband (Hugh Grant) bribes critics, accompanists and even high class audiences to sing her praise, as she murders arias from private salons to her single public performance – at Carnegie Hall. Perhaps Jenkins’ most interesting relationship is with her pianist (Simon Helberg of Big Bang Theory), who cares for the vulnerable woman even as he giggles at her singing. 110 min

“Florence is a beautiful dreamer, an artist by virtue of her sheer passion for creative vision…feathered fans, clanking beads, piercing shriek and all.” Dana Stevens, Slate.com

Oct 2 @ 2:30 pm

(US, 2016) Written and directed by Anna Rose Holmer. Music by Danny Bensi, Saunder Jurriaans. Cast: Royalty Hightower, Makyla Burnam, Inayah Rodgers, Alexis Neblett, DaíSean Minor, Antonio A.B. Grant Jr.

A local recreation center in Cincinnati’s West End is the unlikely setting for one of year’s most captivating films, about the mysterious inner life of an 11-year-old black girl. Toni (Royalty Hightower) comes to the center to box with her older brother, but she becomes fascinated by the dance moves of The Lionesses, an all-girl troupe that trains in the adjacent gym. A shy outsider, Toni practices until she is accepted into the troupe. But soon after, something strange happens: the rest of the girls begin to faint and have inexplicable convulsive attacks whenever they dance. Is it poisoned water, demons, hormones, or girls just looking for attention. 75 min.

“Like its lead Royalty Hightower, who gives a spectacular performance, The Fits is impossible to look away from. It’s gorgeous, poetic, and opaque, and I’ve never seen any other movie like it.” – Molly Eichel, Philadelphia Inquirer.

INDIGNATION
Oct 6 @ 7:30 pm

(US, 2016) Directed and written by James Schamus, based on the novel by Philip Roth.
Cast: Logan Lerman, Sarah Gadon, Tracy Letts, Linda Edmond, Danny Burstein.

In INDIGNATION, Philip Roth’s semi-autobiographical novel, college life in 1951 Middle America was a place where anti-Semitism was mainstream, sex was forbidden, and rock and roll was still a dream. Into that world enters Marcus (Logan Lerman), an intellectual Jew from New Jersey with a rebellious streak, who alienates his roommates – and falls in love with a beautiful, troubled Christian girl (Sarah Gordon). Indignation is the first film directed by James Schamus, who has produced a string of provocative movies (Brokeback Mountain, Milk, Safe, and Ice Storm). His debut creates an atmosphere of such specificity and restrained eroticism, that New York Times critic Stephen Holden raved “it is easily the best film made of a Roth novel.” 110 min.
