THE KINDERGARTEN TEACHER
Sep 1 @ 7:30 pm

(Israel. 2015). Written and directed by Nadav Lapid. Cast: Sarit Larry, Avi Shnaidman, Lior Raz, Hamuchtar Ester Rada, Yehezkel Lazarov, Avishag Kahalani.

From Whiplash to Dreamgirls to Nijinsky, the relationships of mentors and their proteges can be stormy as well as mutually beneficial. The brilliant new movie by Israeli writer/director Nadav Lapid teeters on the fine line between rescuing a remarkable gift from obscurity, and obsession. Sarit Larry plays a kindergarten teacher who discovers that one of her students, 5 year old Yoav (Avi Schnaidman) seems to have a rare facility for poetry. She encourages his creativity in and out of the classroom, but the boy’s family, is not so sure that poetry has any meaning in the world, or if his talent is merely the delusion of an unhappy woman.

“an intriguing and unconventional take on genius and madness” – Bruce DeMara, Toronto Globe and Mail. 119 min.

Sep 2 @ 7:30 pm

(UK, 2015) Directed by Asif Kapadia. With: Amy Winehouse, Mark Ronson, Tony Bennett, Pete Doherty, Mitch Winehouse, Salaam Remi, Mos Def.

It is still hard to think that singer Amy Winehouse – loved by such disparate musicians as Tony Bennett, Keith Richards and Mos Def – will not be performing into her 60s. Asif Kapadia’s documentary eases the loss with new scenes of Amy at her best – especially the clips of a young “classic North London Jewish girl with lots of attitude,” finding joy in her blend of jazz, pop, hip hop and soul. The film’s powerful sense of outrage comes from exposing how everyone – from tabloids to record companies to lovers and family – prized her fame over her fragile mental health.

“The really respectful thing about the movie is you are reminded why she was famous in the first place—she was a genius.” – Mark Ronson, producer of Back to Black.

A LITTLE CHAOS
Sep 6 @ 2:30 pm

(UK, 2015) Directed by Alan Rickman. Screenplay by Alan Rickman, Alison Deegan, and Jeremy Brock. Cast: Kate Winslet, Alan Rickman, Matthias Schoenaerts, Stanley Tucci, Jennifer Ehle.

There is said to be an unbreachable divide between those who thrill to the order and precision of the gardens at Versailles, and those who prefer the wild abandon of the English cottage garden. In a wholly enjoyable new film directed by the great Alan Rickman (Professor Snape and so much more), an unconventional landscape designer (Kate Winslet) appears at the royal chateau, wanting to insert ‘a little chaos’ into a new water feature. Rickman, who also stars as the clever and manipulative King Louis IV, is intrigued by this woman whose disdain for court life and for gardening as a means to ‘tame nature’ is bound to inspire her dangerous enemies. 112 min.

“Alan Rickman has found in the Sun King a character worthy of his imperious, reptilian charisma!” – Stephen Holden, a New York Times Critics Pick
