Get On Up
“Thrillingly captures the frenzy of Brown’s music, and the forces driving that frenzy, both musical and personal.” Steven Holden, New York Times
In his follow-up to the four-time Academy Award (R)-nominated blockbuster The Help, Tate Taylor directs 42’s Chadwick Boseman as James Brown in Get on Up. Based on the incredible life story of the Godfather of Soul, the film will give a fearless look inside the music, moves and moods of Brown, taking audiences on the journey from his impoverished childhood to his evolution into one of the most influential figures of the 20th century. Boseman is joined in the drama by Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer, Nelsan Ellis, Lennie James, Tika Sumpter, Jill Scott and Dan Aykroyd.
“To play James Brown, the Godfather of Soul, in Get On Up, cautious just won’t cut it. No worries. Boseman tears into the role like a man possessed. You can’t take your eyes off him.” —Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
Directed By: Tate Taylor; Cast: Chadwick Boseman, Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer; PG-13, 2 hr. 18 min.
Oct. 24 & 26–29
“You’re in for something funny, touching and vital. Director Lenny Abrahamson knows his way around eccentrics.” —Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
Acclaimed Irish director Lenny Abrahamson follows up his award-winning films Adam & Paul, Garage, and What Richard Did with an offbeat comedy about a young wannabe musician, Jon (Domhnall Gleeson), who finds himself out of his depth when he joins an avant-garde pop band led by the mysterious and enigmatic Frank (Michael Fassbender), a musical genius who hides himself inside a large fake head, and his terrifying bandmate Clara (Maggie Gyllenhaal).
“A delightful, oddball surprise.” —Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
Directed By: Lenny Abrahamson; Cast: Michael Fassbender, Domhnall Gleeson, Maggie Gyllenhall; R, 1 hr. 35 min.
