OPENS DEC 20th:
 

The Two Popes, from director Fernando Meirelles (City of God, The Constant Gardener) and screenwriter Anthony McCarten (The Theory of Everything, Darkest Hour), is inspired by true events around one of the most dramatic transitions of power in the last 2,000 years. Frustrated with the direction of the church, Cardinal Bergoglio (Jonathan Pryce) requests permission to retire in 2012 from Pope Benedict (Anthony Hopkins). Instead, facing scandal and self-doubt, the introspective Pope Benedict summons his harshest critic and future successor to Rome to reveal a secret that would shake the foundations of the Catholic Church. Behind Vatican walls, a struggle commences between both tradition and progress, guilt and forgiveness, as these two very different men confront elements from their pasts in order to find common ground and forge a future for a billion followers around the world. (Partially subtitled)

RETRUNS DEC 20th
for limited screenings:
 
Bong Joon Ho (Okja, Snowpiercer, The Host, Mother) brings his singular mastery home to Korea in this pitch-black modern fairytale. Meet the Park Family: the picture of aspirational wealth. And the Kim Family, rich in street smarts but not much else. Be it chance or fate, these two houses are brought together and the Kims sense a golden opportunity. Masterminded by college-aged Ki-woo, the Kim children expediently install themselves as tutor and art therapist to the Parks. Soon, a symbiotic relationship forms between the two families. The Kims provide “indispensable” luxury services while the Parks obliviously bankroll their entire household. When a parasitic interloper threatens the Kims’ newfound comfort, a savage, underhanded battle for dominance breaks out, threatening to destroy the fragile ecosystem between the Kims and the Parks. By turns darkly hilarious and heart-wrenching, Parasite showcases a modern master at the top of his game. Winner of the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival. (Fully subtitled)

COMING IN JANUARY:
 
Visionary writer/director Terrence Malick (The Tree of Life, The New World, The Thin Red Line, Days of Heaven) makes a triumphant return with A Hidden Life. Based on real events, the deeply-felt biographical drama is the story of an unsung hero, Franz Jägerstätter (August Diehl, Inglourious Basterds), who refused to fight for the Nazis in World War II. An ordinary Austrian farmer in a remote, idyllic mountain village, Franz lives happily with his wife and children, seemingly far from the fray, amid breathtaking vistas of natural splendor. But when he is required to take an oath of allegiance to Hitler, Franz refuses, holding fast to what he believes is right, when all around him comply. Faced with the threat of execution for treason, it is his unwavering faith and his love for his wife Fani (Valerie Pachner, The Ground Beneath My Feet) and children that keeps his spirit alive.
