“This delicious satire about aging hipsters and their discontents is everything we’ve come to expect from the best of Noah Baumbach, as well as several things more.” —Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
Noah Boaumbach’s comedy While We’re Young stars Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts as Josh and Cornelia, a childless New York married couple in their mid-forties. As their other friends all start having children, the couple gravitates toward a young hipster couple named Jamie (Adam Driver) and Darby (Amanda Seyfried). He’s an aspiring documentary filmmaker, a vocation Josh already has. Soon the older couple begins enjoying the energy they feel hanging out with the younger generation.
“Baumbach may be the sharpest social satirist of his generation –in some ways, he’s a Woody Allen with clearer vision and fewer nervous tics…” —Ty Burr, Boston Globe

“A redemption story doesn’t always need to show the blood. Danny Collins gets the point across without pretention. Its closing scene, alone, is worth the price of admission.” —Lindsey Bahr, Associated Press
Al Pacino stars as aging 1970s rocker Danny Collins, who can’t give up his hard-living ways. But when his manager (Christopher Plummer) uncovers a 40 year-old undelivered letter written to him by John Lennon, he decides to change course and embarks on a heartfelt journey to rediscover his family, find true love and begin a second act.
“Al Pacino as a jaded, aging rocker re-juiced by a road trip to settle accounts with himself and his long-lost family? By all means roll your eyes – the star has one brow goofily raised himself – but don’t give up on Danny Collins.” —Ela Taylor, NPR

Directed by Simon Curtis; Cast: Helen Mirren Daniel Brühl, Katie Holmes, Ryan Reynolds; PG-13, 1 hr. 50 min.
WOMAN IN GOLD is the remarkable true story of one woman’s journey to reclaim her heritage and seek justice for what happened to her family. Sixty years after she fled Vienna during World War II, an elderly Jewish woman, Maria Altmann (Mirren), starts her journey to retrieve family possessions seized by the Nazis, among them Klimt’s famous painting ‘Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I’. Together with her inexperienced but plucky young lawyer Randy Schoenberg (Reynolds), she embarks upon a major battle which takes them all the way to the heart of the Austrian establishment and the U.S. Supreme Court, and forces her to confront difficult truths about the past along the way.

“Argentina’s nominee for the foreign-film Oscar is a farce about revenge that is feral, ferocious and gut-bustingly funny. You’ll laugh till it hurts.” —Peter Travers, Rolling Stone. Inequality, injustice and the demands of the world we live in cause stress and depression for many people. Some of them, however, explode. This is a movie about those people. Vulnerable in the face of a reality that shifts and suddenly turns unpredictable, the characters of Wild Tales cross the thin line that divides civilization and barbarism. A lover’s betrayal, a return to the repressed past and the violence woven into everyday encounters drive the characters to madness as they cede to the undeniable pleasure of losing control. “In between its shocker start and equally startling windup, this Argentine anthology offers up a scabrous, often unsettlingly funny look at human behavior in extremis.” —Manhola Dargis, New York Times
WOMAN IN GOLD: Friday & Saturday 9:15, Sunday 2:30
JUNE 19 & 21–24, 26–28
Written & Directed by Oliver Assayas; Cast: Juliette Binoche, Kristen Stewart, Chloë Grace Moretz; 2 hr. 4 min, R (language and brief graphic nudity)
Maria Enders (Juliette Binoche) is an actress at the peak of her international career who is asked to perform in a revival of the play that made her famous twenty years earlier. Back then she played the role of Sigrid, an alluring young woman who disarms and eventually drives her boss Helena to suicide. Now she is being asked to step into the other role, that of the older Helena. She departs with her assistant (Kristen Stewart) to rehearse in Sils Maria, a remote region of the Alps. A young Hollywood starlet with a penchant for scandal (Chloë Grace Moretz) is to take on the role of Sigrid, and Maria finds herself on the other side of the mirror, face to face with an ambiguously charming woman who is, in essence, an unsettling reflection of herself. “A film of countless earthly pleasures, chief among them the faces of three very different but fascinating actresses: Juliette Binoche, Kristen Stewart, and Chloë Grace Moretz.” —David Edelstein, New York Magazine
WILD TALES: Friday 9:15, Sunday 2:30
JUNE 26–JULY 1, 4–5
Written & Directed By: Alex Garland; Cast: Domhnall Gleeson, Alicia Vikander, Oscar Isaac; 1 hr. 48 min, R (graphic nudity, language, sexual references and some violence)
Alex Garland, writer of 28 Days Later and Sunshine, makes his directorial debut with the stylish and cerebral thriller, Ex Machina. Caleb Smith (Domhnall Gleeson), a programmer at an internet-search giant, wins a competition to spend a week at the private mountain estate of the company’s brilliant and reclusive CEO, Nathan Bateman (Oscar Isaac). Upon his arrival, Caleb learns that Nathan has chosen him to be the human component in a Turing Test—charging him with evaluating the capabilities, and ultimately the consciousness, of Nathan’s latest experiment in artificial intelligence. That experiment is Ava (Alicia Vikander), a breathtaking A.I. whose emotional intelligence proves more sophisticated—and more deceptive—than the two men could have imagined.
