Dir. Bruno Dumont - 2017 - 115m - France - In French with English subtitles - No Matinees

France, 1425. In the midst of the Hundred Years’ War, the young Jeannette, at the still tender age of 8, looks after her sheep in the small village of Domremy.

One day, she tells her friend Hauviette how she cannot bear to see the suffering caused by the English. Madame Gervaise, a nun, tries to reason with the young girl, but Jeannette is ready to take up arms for the salvation of souls and the liberation of the Kingdom of France. Carried by her faith, she will become Joan of Arc.

"(Dumont) once again displays a true mastery of his craft." — The Hollywood Reporter

"[The film] marks an unexpected and near-perfect synthesis of the French iconoclast’s many disparate interests and obsessions."— Cinema Scope

"One of the true UFOs I have encountered in my ten years of Cannes attendance." — Filmmaker

"One can never quite tell with Dumont if he’s deadly serious about all this or laughing up his sleeve." — The Guardian

Dir. Xavier Beauvois - 2018 - 135m - France - In French with English subtitles - No Matinees

An affecting human drama of love, loss, and resilience unfolds against the backdrop of World War I. The women of the Paridier farm, under the deft hand of Hortense, the family's matriarch (Nathalie Baye,) must grapple with the workload while the men, including two sons, are off at the front. Hortense reluctantly brings on an outsider, the hard-scrabble teenage orphan, Francine (Iris Bry), to help her daughter Solange (Laura Smet). New tools allow the women to triumph over the land, newfound independence is acquired, yet emotions are stirred especially when the men return from the front on short leaves. Acclaimed filmmaker Xavier Beauvois (Of Gods and Men) revels in the mysteries and beauties of the French countryside, here unravaged by war, with painterly images bathed in natural light, yet keeps his focus on the intricate drama that plays out against the upheaval of the Great War. 

“With narrative restraint and a lapidary visual style, Mr. Beauvois opens up this isolated world with stirring emotional force.” - Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

“A serious-minded and...rather powerful portrait of women getting by in a world where all the men are either gone or gone mad.” - Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter

The Turnblads' (Divine, Jerry Stiller) plus-size daughter (Ricki Lake) rocks a segregated TV dance show in 1960s Baltimore.  Funny as heck and a good message to boot, (!) this is the original 1988 one that includes Sonny Bono and Debra Harry as parents of a rival young girl plus Ric Ocasek and Pia Zadora as pot-smoking beatniks.  

"Not only Waters's best movie, but a crossover gesture that expands his appeal without compromising his vision one iota" - Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
