Neruda
 Neruda
In addition to his acclaimed film Jackie, prolific Chilean filmmaker Pablo Larrain made this film about the beloved poet Pablo Neruda (Luis Gnecco) set during post-WWII Chile. Forced underground by the government for his communist writings, Neruda goes into hiding with a perseverant police inspector (Gael García Bernal) hot on his trail. Meanwhile, in Europe, the legend of the poet hounded by the policeman grows, and artists led by Pablo Picasso clamor for Neruda’s freedom. Neruda cunningly plays with the inspector, leaving clues designed to make their game of cat-and-mouse ever more perilous. In this story of a persecuted poet and his obsessive adversary, Neruda recognizes his own heroic possibilities: a chance to become a symbol for liberty, as well as a literary legend. (107 mins)

"Mr. Larraín invites us to believe that history is on the side of the poets and the humanists, and that art will make fools of politicians and policemen. But he is also aware, as Pablo Neruda was, that history sometimes has other plans." – A.O. Scott, The New York Times

"It is often very funny, unsettling and yet still proves illuminating on the character of Neruda and the battle for Chile in the 1940s." – Allan Hunter, Screen International

In Spanish with subtitles. (99 mins)

Elle
 Elle
Golden Globe Winner for Best Foreign Film and Best Dramatic Performance. Michèle seems indestructible. Played by Isabelle Huppert, she is the head of a leading video game company and brings the same ruthless attitude to her love life and her business. After being violently assaulted in her home by an unknown attacker, Michèle`s life changes forever. When she resolutely tracks the man down, they are both drawn into a curious and thrilling game—a game that may, at any moment, spiral out of control. Director Paul Verhoeven (Basic Instinct) premiered the film in competition for the Palme d`Or at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival. In French with subtitles.(131 mins)

"Elle, is a thing to behold. Part thriller, part obsidian-black comedy, part cerebral firebomb, it’s confrontational, terrible and glorious. You almost can’t believe such a picture exists." – Stepanie Zachareck, Time Magazine

"Verhoeven creates an elegant frame for his lead actress and lets her fill it, and what we end up with is Huppert’s best collaboration with a director since the death of Claude Chabrol." – Mick Lasalle, San Francisco Chronicle

"Villeneuve has crafted a movie akin to `Close Encounters of the Third Kind`: an imaginative, escapist what-if scenario overlaid with semi-profound questions about fate, loss and the meaning of love." - Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

"This is precisely the kind of science-fiction movie, at once epic and intimate, that Interstellar tried (and failed) to be." - Christopher Orr, The Atlantic

20th Century Women
 20th Century Women
Set in Santa Barbara in the seventies, 20th Century Women follows Dorothea Fields (Annette Bening), a determined single mother in her mid-50s who is raising her adolescent son, Jamie (Lucas Jade Zumann) at a moment brimming with cultural change and rebellion. Dorothea enlists the help of two younger women in Jamie’s upbringing — via Abbie (Greta Gerwig), a free-spirited punk artist living as a boarder in the Fields’ home, and Julie (Elle Fanning), a savvy and provocative teenage neighbor. 20th Century Women is a poignant love letter by filmmaker Mike Mills (Beginners) to his mom and family. (R, 118 mins)

"The movie belongs wholeheartedly to Bening, and to the age, come and gone, that she enshrines." – Anthony Lane, The New Yorker

"20th Century Women is irreducible, too, although certain adjectives and adverbs do leap to mind: generous, reflective, absolutely delightful." – David Edelstein, New York Magazine

Seasons
 Seasons
Wed, Feb 1 at 7:15pm – Presented with Wildlife Refuge

After traveling the world alongside migrating birds (Winged Migration), Jacques Perrin and Jacques Cluzaud return to more familiar ground: the lush green forests and megafauna that emerged across Europe following the last Ice Age. The ice retreated, the landscape metamorphosed, the cycle of seasons was established, and the beasts occupied their new kingdom. It was only later that man arrived to share this habitat, first tentatively as migratory hunter/gatherers, then making inroads in the forest as settled agriculturalists, and later more dramatically via industry and warfare.(96 mins)

“Features some of the most breathtaking nature photography this side of BBC’s “Planet Earth” miniseries” - Peter Debruge, Variety

“Truly beautiful. Captures the poetry, humor and drama of wildlife.” - Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter
