(US, 2015) Director: Simon Curtis. Screenwriter: Alexi Kaye Campbell. Cast: Helen Mirren, Ryan Reynolds, Charles Dance, Moritz Bleibtreu, Antje Traue.

Sly. Brainy. Sexy. Regal. Helen Mirren has been called all of the above during her extraordinary career, in films as varied as The Long Good Friday, The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover, and The Queen. Her newest film finds Mirren in a stirring true story playing Maria Altmann, an elderly Austrian-Jewish woman with a steely core, who is driven to track down the priceless works of art that the Nazis stole from her family during World War II. With the help of an inexperienced young American lawyer (Ryan Reynolds), she takes on the Austrian government to retrieve Gustav Klimt’s masterful painting known as The Woman in Gold, which also happens to be a portrait of her Aunt, Adele Bloch-Bauer. 109 min.

“Extraordinarily moving … Mirren, as you might expect, takes hold of the movie and steers it home.” – Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times.

TAB HUNTER CONFIDENTIAL
Jul 9 @ 7:30 pm – 7:30 pm

(US, 2015) Directed by Jeffrey Schwarz. Based on the book by Tab Hunter and Eddie Muller. With: Tab Hunter, John Waters, George Takei, Connie Stevens, Robert Wagner, Debbie Reynolds, Terry Moore, Mother Dolores Hart.

No actor in the 1950s fit the wholesome, blond and buff boy next door better than Tab Hunter! As revealed in a new movie based on his autobiography, the teen heartthrob may not have slept with his leading ladies (including Debbie Reynolds, Connie Stevens, Terry Moore, and Dolores Hart), but they all have fond memories of his sunny nature, even as he lived under the threat of losing his career to homophobia. A sassy mix of new interviews and old clips of movies, from Operation Bikini to Tab’s groundbreaking role in John Water’s Polyester. 90 min.

“Even if you’ve never heard of Tab Hunter – especially if you haven’t – in the 1950s, there was no more beautiful man on the planet.” The Dallas Voice.

(Mexico, 2015) Directed by Alonso Ruizpalacios. Screenplay by Alonso Ruizpalacios and Gibrn Portela. Cast: Tenoch Huerta, Sebastin Aguirre, Ilse Salas, Leonardo Ortizgris.

Set during Mexico’s heady, dangerous student unrest in 1999, Alonso Ruizpalacios’ first movie is a showcase of the new retro trend in filmmaking. Shot in black in white in the classic, more square picture ratio, Geros is a fresh take on the 1960’s New Wave. Toms (Sebastin Aguirre) is a restless teenager who drives his mother to distraction. She sends him to live with his brother Sombra (Tenoch Huerta), a student at Mexico City’s National University, without knowing that it has been shut down by strikes. The two brothers, a slacker roommate, and Ana, a radical classmate, go on a funny and poignant road trip to find Epigmenio Cruz, a reclusive singer whose songs are so beautiful that they once ‘made Bob Dylan cry.’
“In a time of year when theatres are awash with blockbusters… Güeros is just what this summer needed!” – Rebecca Pahle, Film Journal International. 102 min.

“A gorgeous slice of deadbeat Mexico City slacker poetry…a work of genius…witty, delicate and often magical. GUEROS is the foreign-language discovery of 2015 so far, and pretty close to the best film I’ve seen all year.”
– Andrew O’Hehir, Salon

“Both sweetly nostalgic and exuberantly now… An unabashed homage not only to the Nouvelle Vague but also to a more general international new wave-ism. The story pops and swerves; the images are by turns comical, banal and ravishing: and the result is a briskly shaken cocktail made of equal parts provocation and comfort. You come away with a buzz that is invigorating and pleasantly familiar… In the Godardian spirit of MASCULINE FEMININE and BAND OF OUTSIDERS…”
– A.O. Scott, The New York Times

“FASCINATING. JOYOUS. Ruizpalacios shoots and stages… with great inventive power, his fleet, roving camera inspired by the deceptive looseness of the New Wave – the film is always in motion but always composed with rigor.”
– Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice

“CATCH THE EMERGENCE OF A MAJOR NEW MEXICAN DIRECTOR.”
– Time Out New York

“Best debut feature I’ve seen in the last year, best Mexican film in recent memory, and best (black and white) cinematography since (the) equally stunning but very different IDA. A sly, insouciant masterpiece, it marks Alonso Ruizpalacios as a talent to watch.”
– Godfrey Cheshire, Rogerebert.com

“This bouncy and effervescent film often has the kind of timeless charms that can also be found in the early New Wave films.”
– Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter

“A good story – full of life and related with intelligence and a sense of humor.”
– Elise Nakhnikian, Slant

“Alive with personality and humor to spare…one of the more successful homages to the French New Wave. It’s playful in the spirit of Truffaut’s SHOOT THE PIANO PLAYER.”
– Kent Turner, Film-Forward.com
