Dir. Arnaud Desplechin - 2018 - 135m - France - In French with English subtitles - No Matinees

Ismael Vuillard makes films. He is in the middle of one about Ivan, an atypical diplomat inspired by his brother. Along with Bloom, his master and father-in-law, Ismaël still mourns the death of Carlotta, twenty years earlier. Yet he has started his life over again with Sylvia. Sylvia is his light. Then Carlotta returns from the dead. Sylvia runs away. Ismaël rejects Carlotta. Driven mad by these ordeals, he abandons the shoot for his family home in Roubaix. There, he lives as a recluse, besieged by his ghosts.

“The story of Ismael's Ghosts was bewitching, a puzzle of stories and characters that each unlocked the true reality of Ismael's world and life.” - Stephanie Archer, Film Inquiry

“Flush with stylistic elegance and brio.” - Scout Tafoya, RogerEbert.com

“A freewheeling gambit, hurtling in multiple directions at once, and it's thrilling to watch Desplechin try juggle them all.” - Eric Kohn, indieWire

Keep The Change - LAST DAY!

Apr 20 to Apr 23
Friday to Monday 4:00, 8:30

Dir. Rachel Israel - 2018 - 93m

Best U.S. Narrative Feature & Best New Narrative Director – Tribeca Film Festival

“Keep the Change does something unusual, casting actors on the autism spectrum to play autistic roles. It’s sweet and honest, funny and poignant. The story is intensely personal and wholly universal.” – Claire Baiz, Bright Lights Film Journal

When aspiring filmmaker David (Brandon Polansky) is mandated by a judge to attend a social program at the Jewish Community Center, he is sure of one thing: he doesn’t belong there. But when he’s assigned to visit the Brooklyn Bridge with the vivacious Sarah (Samantha Elisofon), sparks fly and his convictions are tested. Their budding relationship must weather Sarah’s romantic past, David’s judgmental mother (Jessica Walter), and their own pre-conceptions of what love is supposed to look like. Under the guise of an off-kilter New York romantic comedy, Keep the Change does something quite radical in offering a refreshingly honest portrait of a community seldom depicted on the big screen. Rarely has a romcom felt so deep and poignant. Thoroughly charming and quite funny, the film's warmth and candor brings growth and transformation to the characters, and ultimately, to us.

“A tart and touching love story.” – Thelma Adams, New York Observer

“Positions itself to join the pantheon of New York rom-coms. Refreshingly uncynical. We’ve seen the Brooklyn Bridge up there on the big screen plenty of times, but rarely have we seen it crossed by characters quite like these.” – Michael Nordine, Indiewire

“Charming, romantic. An ode to self-discovery and acceptance that’s as funny as it is sweet.” – Nick Schager, Variety

"An intricate love story, featuring people we rarely get to see on the big screen.” – Anne-Katrin Titze, Eye for Film
