I Will See You In My Dreams
 I Will See You In My Dreams
In this vibrant, funny, and heartfelt film, a widow and former songstress discovers that life can begin anew at any age. After the death of her beloved dog, Carol (Blythe Danner) loses interest in the everyday activities that have given her life structure for so long – her regular bridge game, gardening, a glass of wine or two. With the support of three loyal girlfriends (June Squibb, Rhea Perlman, and Mary Kay Place), Carol decides to embrace the world, embarking on an unlikely friendship with her pool maintenance man (Martin Starr), pursuing a new love interest (Sam Elliott), and reconnecting with her daughter (Malin Akerman). Blythe Danner makes an elegant, warmly sympathetic heroine in director Brett Haley’s buoyant second feature. (PG-13, 92 mins)

"Now after 43 years in feature films, Danner has gotten the opportunity to show what she can do, and in I’ll See You in My Dreams, she is simply jaw-dropping, just wonderful."
– Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle

Clouds of Sils Maria
 Clouds of Sils Maria
At the peak of her international career, Maria Enders (Juliette Binoche) is asked to perform in a revival of the play that made her famous twenty years ago. But back then she played the role of Sigrid, an alluring young girl who disarms and eventually drives her boss Helena to suicide. Now she is being asked to step into the other role, that of the older Helena. She departs with her assistant (Kristen Stewart) to rehearse in Sils Maria; a remote region of the Alps. A young Hollywood starlet with a penchant for scandal (Chloë Grace Moretz) is to take on the role of Sigrid, and Maria finds herself on the other side of the mirror, face to face with an ambiguously charming woman who is, in essence, an unsettling reflection of herself.

Faith in Film: Strange Cargo
 Faith in Film: Strange Cargo
Sunday, June 21 at 7:15pm – 'Faith In Film'

Here is a rare and neglected treasure in the canon of director Frank Borzage, in which Clark Gable and Joan Crawford seek to escape a penal colony, a sort of Devil's Island. The allegorical melodrama, spiced with the witty sexual tension of its stars reading the Song of Solomon, raised controversies when it was released, and remains a strange but fascinating poem on mystery and grace. (1940, 113 mins)

Our Faith in Film Series is hosted this summer by Prof. Terry Lindvall of Va Wesleyan College, who will introduce the film and lead a discussion.

Woman In Gold
 Woman In Gold
Note: WOMAN IN GOLD will have to be pushed back to June.

Sixty years after fleeing Vienna, Maria Altmann (Helen Mirren), an elderly Jewish woman, attempts to reclaim family possessions that were seized by the Nazis. Among them is a famous portrait of Maria's beloved Aunt Adele: Gustave Klimt's "Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I." With the help of young lawyer Randy Schoeberg (Ryan Reynolds), Maria embarks upon a lengthy legal battle to recover this painting and several others, but it will not be easy, for Austria considers them national treasures. And along the way, she must face difficult truths about the past.

"It’s a touching film that entertains with warmth and humor while teaching us something about history, law and justice with enormous heart, subtlety and compassion, brilliantly acted and skillfully written. Is there anything Helen Mirren cannot do?"
– Rex Reed, New York Observer
