Film showing of Maleficent, directed by Robert Stromberg and starring Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning. A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army threatens the harmony of the land. Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces a battle with the invading king's successor and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Maleficent realizes that Aurora holds the key to peace in the kingdom, and perhaps to Maleficent's true happiness as well.
"Maleficent feels classical in nature. The characters are boiled down to their essentials, the humor is timelessly broad, and Jolie's at her best when she's curling her claws and elongating her vowels like a black-sabbath Tallulah Bankhead." --Entertainment Weekly
"An exquisitely designed, emotionally absorbing work of dark enchantment." --Hollywood Reporter
Film showing of A Most Wanted Man, directed by Anton Corbijn and starring Philip Seymour Hoffman (in his final leading role), Rachel McAdams, Robin Wright, and Willem Dafoe. When a half-Chechen, half-Russian, brutally tortured immigrant turns up in Hamburg's Islamic community, laying claim to his father's ill gotten fortune, both German and US security agencies take a close interest: as the clock ticks down and the stakes rise, the race is on to establish this most wanted man's true identity--oppressed victim or destruction-bent extremist? Based on John le Carré's novel, A Most Wanted Man is a contemporary, cerebral tale of intrigue, love, rivalry, and politics that prickles with tension right through to its last heart-stopping scene.
"One of the best spy thrillers in recent years." --Richard Roeper
"Hoffman leaves us with a quality film that showcases his tremendous depth and range as an actor." --Toronto Star
Film showing of The Hundred-Foot Journey, directed by Lasse Hallstrom and starring Helen Mirren, Om Puri, Manish Dayal, and Charlotte Le Bon. Hassan is a culinary ingenue with the gastronomic equivalent of perfect pitch. Displaced from their native India, his family settles in a quaint village in the south of France. They plan to open an Indian restaurant, that is, until Madame Mallory, the owner of a classical French restaurant, gets wind of it. Her icy protests against the new Indian restaurant so near her own escalate to all out war; until Hassan's cooking talent and love for Mme. Mallory's assistant, Marguerite cannot be ignored.
"A mouth-watering and charming ... romantic comedy-drama about an immigrant family opening an Indian restaurant in a most unlikely location: the South of France." --New York Post
