March 7, 2017

Ove_Final_Poster

Ove is the quintessential angry old man next door. An isolated retiree with strict principles and a short fuse, who spends his days enforcing block association rules that only he cares about, and visiting his wife’s grave, Ove has given up on life.

Enter a boisterous young family next door who accidentally flattens Ove’s mailbox while moving in and earning his special brand of ire. Yet from this inauspicious beginning an unlikely friendship forms and we come to understand Ove’s past happiness and heartbreaks.

What emerges is a heartwarming tale of unreliable first impressions and the gentle reminder that life is sweeter when its shared.

HITCHCOCK/TRUFFAUT (PG) DEC 18 – 24

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.

Wendy is a fiery Manhattan author whose husband has just left her for a younger woman; Darwan is a soft-spoken taxi driver from India on the verge of an arranged marriage. As Wendy sets out to reclaim her independence, she runs into a barrier common to many lifelong New Yorkers: she’s never learned to drive. When Wendy hires Darwan to teach her, her unraveling life and his calm restraint seem like an awkward fit. But as he shows her how to take control of the wheel, and she coaches him on how to impress a woman, their unlikely friendship awakens them to the joy, humor, and love in starting life anew.
