ANAIS IN LOVE

May 13 to May 17
Friday thru Tuesday 3:45, 8pm

Dir. Charline Bourgeois-Tacquet - 2022 - 98m - France - in French with English Subtitles

A buoyant French comedy from director Charline Bourgeois-Tacquet, follows spirited and romantic thirtysomething Anaïs (Anaïs Demoustier) in her manic search for stability. Behind on her rent, contemplating breaking up with her boyfriend, and struggling to complete her thesis, Anaïs searches for inspiration while hurtling through lovers with abandon. When her affair with an older book publisher Daniel (Denis Podalydès) leads to her falling for his live-in partner Emilie (Valeria Bruni Tedeschi), a brilliant and luminescent novelist, things get especially messy. This effervescent, cliché-shattering feature debut weaves a tale of self-discovery as literate and delightful as it is unexpected, keeping both Anaïs and viewers off-balance until the very last moment.

"Both Demoustier and Tedeschi deliver such authentic and graceful performances that we are left feeling enchanted." - Frank J. Avella, Edge Media Network

"A love story as warm and refreshing as the Parisian summer its set against, writer-director Charline Bourgeois-Tacquets feature debut iAnas in Love/i is a dizzyingly euphoric delight." - Andrew Murray, The Upcoming

"A warm, sandy romance harking back to simpler times ... revels in a simplicity uncommon for (increasingly competitive) debut films." - Sarah Williams, In Review Online

"There"s nary a foot put wrong ... its simple story is beautifully told and avoids the obvious pitfalls." - Kevin Wight, The Wee Review

"A polished, slightly old-fashioned exploration of romance, desire and the longings of an inconstant heart..." - Allan Hunter, Screen International

HIT THE ROAD

May 13 to May 17
Friday thru Tuesday 6pm ONLY!

Dir. Panah Panah - 2021 - 93m - Iran - In Persian with English Subtitles

Panah Panahi, son and collaborator of embattled Iranian master Jafar Panahi, makes a striking feature debut with this charming, sharp-witted, and deeply moving comic drama. Hit the Road takes the tradition of the Iranian road-trip movie and adds unexpected twists and turns. It follows a family of four – two middle-aged parents and their sons, one a taciturn adult, the other an ebullient six-year-old – as they drive across the Iranian countryside. Over the course of the trip, they bond over memories of the past, grapple with fears of the unknown, and fuss over their sick dog. Unspoken tensions arise and the film builds emotional momentum as it slowly reveals the furtive purpose for their journey. The result is a humanist drama that offers an authentic, raw, and deeply sincere observation of an Iranian family preparing to part with one of their own.

"Its 93 minutes whip by so airily, it's possible not to realize how much you've learned to love the family whose road trip you've shared in, until the credits roll and you immediately start to miss them." - Jessica Kiang, Variety

"The acting is note perfect across the board: six-year-old Rayan Sarlak is an effervescent explosion of rascally energy, while Madjooni is funny, laconic and pissed-off -- often all at once." - Philip De Semlyen, Time Out

"The son of Iranian filmmaker Jafar Panahi delivers a lean but affecting drama with a winning humorous streak." - Anna Smith. Deadline Hollywood Daily

"Demonstrates a skill and control of the medium that's rare for a first film." - Jordan Mintzer, Hollywood Reporter

"A road comedy with a bittersweet aftertaste, letting us laugh out loud at the travel companion from Hell or at least The Ransom of Red Chief while wistfully reminding us of loss and leave-takings...the very foundations of heartbreak." - Roger Moore, Movie Nation
