What’s showing today:
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society
Lily James plays free-spirited writer Juliet Ashton, who forms a life-changing bond with the delightful and eccentric Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, when she decides to write about the book club they formed during the occupation of Guernsey in WWII.
In 1960’s Paris, Jean-Luc Godard (Louis Garrel, The Dreamers) is the leading filmmaker of his generation. He’s shooting La Chinoise with the woman he loves, Anne Wiazemsky (Stacy Martin, Nymphomaniac Vols I and II), 20 years his junior. They are happy, attractive, in love. They marry. But the film’s reception unleashes a profound self-examination in Jean-Luc. The events of May ’68 will amplify this process, and the crisis that shakes the filmmaker.
That Good Night
That Good Night stars award winner, John Hurt (The Elephant Man, Midnight Express) in his last leading role as Ralph, a once-famous film director in his seventies who has two missions in life. Ralph wishes to be reconciled with his son, Michael (Max Brown, Spooks), and, to ensure that he is not a burden to his devoted wife, Anna (Sofia Helin, The Bridge), as he goes “into that good night”. Ralph hires the services of the mysterious “Visitor” (Charles Dance, Game of Thrones) who unexpectedly guides him to find new meaning in his life.
