Movies on the Big Screen as They Were Meant To Be Seen.
Universal Pictures International,
Dir: Roman Prigounov
Maks (Golden Eagle award winner Danila Kozlovsky) is a wealthy young manager in a big company; penthouses, 5-star restaurants and BMWs are routine for him. But that routine is shaken up completely when he meets a student named Yulya (Mariya Andreeva) and he realizes how inconsistent his life is. In Russian with English subtitles.
Dir: Paolo Sorrentino
Director Paolo Sorrentino (IL DIVO) returns with a dazzling elegy to Rome’s past glories - and those of Jep Gambardella (Toni Servillo), a once-promising writer who fritters away his time with Roman high society. There are echoes of LA DOLCE VITA in this portrait of a man adrift in the Eternal City, not the least of which is the sense that we are witnessing a master filmmaker at work. Official selection of the 2013 Cannes International Film Festival, and Italy’s official entry for the 2014 Foreign-Language Film Oscar. “THE GREAT BEAUTY will surprise, perplex and bewitch highbrow audiences yearning for cinematic feasts.” – Jay Weissberg, Variety. In Italian with English subtitles.
John Candy plays the irrepressible title character in this comedy from writer-director John Hughes. When Bob and Cindy Russell need to leave their new home in Chicago to deal with a family emergency, they reluctantly turn to Bob’s brother Buck to watch the children for a few days. While Uncle Buck is hardly a role model - he makes his living betting on rigged horse races - he proves remarkably adept with kids. Costarring Amy Madigan, Gaby Hoffmann and Macaulay Culkin, whom Hughes would leave HOME ALONE a year later.
