Magic in the Moonlight
 Magic in the Moonlight
Set in the 1920s on the opulent Riviera in the south of France, Woody Allen's Magic in the Moonlight is a romantic comedy starring Colin Firth (The King's Speech) as Stanley Crawford, a master magician who tries to expose psychic medium Sophie Baker (Emma Stone) as a fake. Persuaded by his life-long friend (Simon McBurney), Stanley goes undercover on a mission to a Côte d'Azur mansion in order to debunk the alluring young clairvoyant, who is staying there with her mother (Marcia Gay Harden). From his very first meeting with Sophie, Stanley dismisses her as an insignificant pip-squeak who he can unmask in no time. To his great surprise and discomfort, however, Sophie accomplishes numerous feats of mind-reading and other supernatural deeds that defy all rational explanation, leaving him dumbfounded—and wondering whether Sophie's powers could actually be real. (PG13, 98 mins)

Boyhood
 Boyhood
Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, the latest from writer/director Richard Linklater (whose last two films, Bernie and Before Midnight, were terrific) is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (a breakthrough performance by Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason's parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha, Boyhood charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before. Snapshots of adolescence, from road trips and family dinners to birthdays and graduations and all the moments in between, become transcendent, set to a soundtrack spanning the years, from Coldplay's “Yellow” to Arcade Fire's “Deep Blue.” Boyhood has been garnering some of the best reviews of the year; it’s both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting. It's impossible not to watch Mason and his family without thinking about our own journeys. (R, 166 mins)

Ivory Tower
 Ivory Tower
As tuition rates spiral beyond reach and student loan debt passes $1 trillion (2nd only to mortgage debt), this popular new documentary asks: Is college worth the cost? From the halls of Harvard to public colleges in financial crisis to Silicon Valley, filmmaker Andrew Rossi (Page One: Inside the New York Times) assembles an urgent portrait of a dysfunctional system at the breaking point. Through profiles at Arizona State, Cooper Union and San Jose State—among several others—Ivory Tower reveals how colleges came to embrace a business model that promotes expansion over quality learning. The film also reports on some successful programs, from Stanford to the free desert school Deep Springs to the historically black all women's college Spelman, where the potential for life-changing college experiences endure. Ultimately, Ivory Tower asks: can we revolutionize higher academics and evolve a sustainable economic model? (108 mins)

Post-film discussion:
Steve Rosenthal is a sociologist, now retired after some forty years of college teaching, with a focus on race, class and inequality.
Tom Ellis is an English professor who envisions a reality-based economic system that could sustain a healthy biosphere.
