Monday April 21: Dallas Buyers Club (U.S. 2013) (2013) There’s a reason Matthew McConaughey won the 2014 Oscar for the best actor award. His performance of the real life Ron Woodroof is totally compelling from beginning to the end. A rodeo cowboy and playboy has been diagnosed as H.I.V.- positive – with 30 days to live. Ron takes on the government, the doctors , FDA, and all groups who are blocking aids patients from receiving the “cocktails” they so desperately require.
Thursday April 24: Fruitvale Station (U.S. 2013) A young black man uses the start of a new year to try to turn his life around. His resolutions to be a better son, husband and father aren’t as easy to realize as he hopes and his day ends unexpectedly at the Fruitvale BART station. Based on the true story of Oakland resident Oscar Grant (played by Michael B. Jordan) this Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize-winner follows Grant’s footsteps that day to explore the story behind the news that shocked the nation that night.
Monday April 28: The Broken Circle Breakdown ( Belgium,2012) Tattoo artist and groupie Elise and bluegrass banjo player Didier are drawn together by music. Despite their differences, their sexy romance blossoms into singing together, marriage and parenthood. But their musical collaboration and family are threatened when their child becomes sick. “Foot-stomping” music and steamy sex mark this stylish film.
Thursday May 1: All is Lost (U.S.2013) Robert Redford stars in this gripping and powerfully moving tribute to ingenuity and resilience. Deep into a solo voyage in the Indian ocean, an unnamed man wakes to find his yacht taking on water after a collision with a wayward shipping container. While resourceful and well-equipped for disaster, a perfect storm of problems puts him in mortal danger. The film has almost no words, relying on sight, sound and music to convey information and mood and Redford’s extraordinary portrayal of a man staring at his own mortality.
Saturday May 3: El Toque Gitano/The Gypsy Touch 4:00 and 6:00 p.m. El Toque Gitano is a live flamenco guitar concert, intended to show the audience a different world—that of deep, passionate, vigorous, strong and indomitable flamenco music. Accompanied by the rhythm of percussion and a lady’s elegant palms, you will be transported by the flamenco art from its purest form to its most impassioned melody. Featured guitarist – Aldo Bonilla. Invited guitarists – Bernardo Lizárraga and David Páez . Percussion- Ricardo Montes; Citlali Iglesias- palms and castanets. E mail your reservation (please indicate the 4 or 6 p.m. show) to: firstname.lastname@example.org, $100.
Monday May 5: Inequality for All (U.S. 2013) According to Robert Reich, former Labor Secretary in the Clinton administration, “Of all the developed nations, the United States has the most unequal distribution of income and we’re surging toward even greater inequality.” This non-partisan documentary, a Special Jury Prize winner at the Sundance Film Festival in 2013, examines why that should matter to all Americans, regardless of their politics.
Thursday May 8: Inside Llewyn Davis (U.S.2013) This film, written and directed by the Coen Brothers, follows a week in the life of Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac), an aspiring folk singer struggling for recognition in 1960s Greenwich Village. As usual for a Coen film, the visuals neatly evoke the place and time, the music is catchy, the dialogue is wry and the characters are quirky but appealing. Includes meaty roles for favorites Carey Mulligan, John Goodman, Justin Timberlake and F. Murray Abrahamson.
Monday May 12: Populaire (France 2012) with English subtitles. Speed-typing is a spectator sport in this delightfully fun French romcom in the vein of the 1930s and 40s “Girl Friday” movies. Rose is a terrible secretary but a demon typist. Her handsome boss resolves to turn her into the fastest typist in the world. It gets complicated in a French kind of way.
Thursday May 15: American Hustle (U.S.2013) (Note – the second show starts at 6:00 p.m. not the usual 5:30 p.m. as it runs longer) Nominated for ten Oscars, including Best Picture, American Hustle is an actor’s dream. Christian Bale is almost unrecognizable as pot-bellied con man Irving Rosenfeld, pressured into fronting for the FBI by ambitious agent Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper). Fellow con Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams) and wife Rosalyn (Jennifer Lawrence) alternately fondle and skewer him as the sting operation spirals out of control. Worth seeing for the amazing clothes and 1970s hairdos alone. Directed by David O. Russell of Silver Linings Playbook.
Monday May 19: Shadow Dancer (U.K. Irish 2012) This fast-paced thriller is a twist on the usual when an amateur gets dragged into the world of professional spies. Irish independence true believer Collette (Andrea Riseborough) runs afoul of British spy agency MI-5 when she plants a bomb in the London tube. To protect her son and avoid prison she agrees to watch her colleagues in the IRA after agent Mac (Clive Owen) promises to protect her. But can he keep that promise when his boss (Gillian Anderson) betrays him?
Thursday May 22: Her (U.S. 2013) This Oscar-winning script explores just how close humans could be with their computers. A lonely and complex Theodore Twombly (Joaquin Phoenix) decides to invest in the latest accessory—an intelligent computer operating system. His version of OS1, named Samantha, (a sexy-voiced Scarlett Johansson), is programmed to learn all about him and support him in ways no human woman ever did. And Samantha becomes intrigued with human sensations and emotions. They fall in love. But how can they consummate their feelings? And what future can they have?
Monday May 26 : This is the End (U.S. 2013) All Jay Baruchel wanted to do in L.A. was party like there was no tomorrow with Seth Rogen at James Franco’s housewarming (all play themselves). Then the Biblical Apocalypse begins and they realize there may not be a tomorrow. While good Christians are “raptured” into heaven, the remaining either fall victim to the bottomless pit or try to manage hell on earth. This is a comedy? Yes. They are too clueless to fully realize the trouble they’re in and too much themselves to avoid the mess as they try to survive. Great cameo roles dot the film, like a manic, sledgehammer wielding Emma Thompson. Will the not-so-bright inherit the earth?
Thursday May 29: Carole King and James Taylor Live at the Troubadour. A live concert special starring Carole King and James Taylor filmed at their 2007 performance at the 50th anniversary party for Los Angeles’ famed Troubadour nightclub. Established in 1957 in West Hollywood, the Troubadour introduced almost every key musical figure in folk music, singer-songwriters , and punk and New Wave rock. King and Taylor sing all their most beloved hits such as King’s “So Far Away,” and “Will You Love Me Tomorrow” and Taylor’s “Carolina in My Mind,” and “Fire and Rain.” An album of this concert was released in 2010.
