ROOM tells the extraordinary story of Jack (Jacob Tremblay in a breakout performance), a spirited 5 year-old who is looked after by his loving and devoted Ma (Brie Larson, SHORT TERM 12, TRAINWRECK). Like any good mother, Ma dedicates herself to keeping Jack happy and safe, nurturing him with warmth and love and doing typical things like playing games and telling stories. Their life, however, is anything but typical — they are trapped — confined to a windowless, 10-by-10-foot space, which Ma has euphemistically named “Room.” Ma has created a whole universe for Jack within Room, and she will stop at nothing to ensure that, even in this treacherous environment, Jack is able to live a complete and fulfilling life.

Lisa Immordino Vreeland follows up her acclaimed debut “Diana Vreeland: The Eye has to Travel” with PEGGY GUGGENHEIM: ART ADDICT. A colorful character who was not only ahead of her time but helped to define it, Peggy Guggenheim was an heiress to her family fortune who became a cen- tral figure in the modern art movement. As she moved through the cultural upheaval of the 20th century, she collected not only art, but artists. Her colourful personal history included such figures as Samuel Beckett, Max Ernst, Jackson Pollock, Alexander Calder, Marcel Duchamp as well as count- less others. While fighting through personal tragedy, she maintained her vision to build one of the most important collections of modern art, now enshrined in her Venetian palazzo.

December 17, 2015

Hitchcock/Truffaut offers fascinating insights from such luminaries as Martin Scorsese (who dissects Hitchcock’s shot selection in The Wrong Man), Kiyoshi Kurosawa (who analyzes the famous Cary Grant-Ingrid Bergman kiss in Notorious) and David Fincher (who reflects on the perversions of Vertigo). Director Kent Jones — a multi-hyphenated talent who serves as Director of Programming for the New York Film Festival, works on film preservation with the World Cinema Project, and writes for Film Comment and other publications — skilfully blends these observations with the original audio recordings of Hitchcock and Truffaut’s interviews, along with a generous helping of film clips, to create a dialogue across generations.
