    Oh Lucy!

    May 25, 2018

    Comedy / 2018 / 95 minutes

    Japanese writer/director Atsuko Hirayanagi brings her wonderfully oddball sensibility stateside with the 2018 charmer Oh Lucy! Shinobu Terajima plays a lonely middle-aged Tokyo office worker who, after enrolling in an unconventional English language class and adopting a wig-wearing alternate identity, becomes infatuated with her handsome, emotionally open American instructor (Josh Hartnett, in a career-redeeming performance), ultimately following him to suburban California when he leaves suddenly with her niece. A soulful dramedy of identity, longing and miscommunication, Oh Lucy! is the sort of idiosyncratic, open-ended rumination that feels refreshing next to formulaic Hollywood fare and heralds the emergence of a strong cinematic voice. With Kaho Minami, Shiori Kutsuna and Megan Mullallay.

    Grace Jones: Bloodlight And Bami

    May 25, 2018

    Documentary / 2018 / 115 minutes

    Sophie Fiennes’s remarkable new documentary Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami offers rare insight into one of the most enigmatic public figures of the last four decades – the incomparable singer/actor/performance artist/fashion icon Grace Jones. Centered by footage from Jones’ visually arresting stage shows, Fiennes’ film follows the diva through her life as an artist, performer, business woman, mother, crafting a portrait as stylish and unpredictable as the subject herself, both intimate and exalting. Interviews with bandmates, friends and loved ones give definition to a creative force that refuses to be defined or categorized, but in the end it is Jones’ fearlessness and unique, uncompromised charisma that leaves the viewer awed and electrified. Featuring eye-popping performances of some of Jones’ most notable repertoire, including “Slave to the Rhythm”, “Love is the Drug” and “Pull Up to the Bumper”.

    Lean On Pete

    May 25, 2018

    Adventure / 2018 / 121 minutes

    The fourth feature film from director Andrew Haigh, 2018’s Lean on Pete is a top-tier coming of age drama that sits comfortably among celebrated works like Francois Truffaut’s 400 Blows and Nicolas Roeg’s Walkabout. Based on a novel by Willy Vlautin, the story concerns a 15-year old boy (Charlie Plummer) who, after moving to rural Oregon with his largely absentee father (Travis Fimmel), finds work at a stable where he bonds with a soon to be sold off racehorse, prompting him to escape with the animal on a cross-country odyssey. Plummer is a wonder as the soulful, naive lead, matched perfectly with Steve Buscemi’s world-weary owner/mentor and Chloe Sevigny’s hardened jockey, marvelous performances that are given space to live and breathe under Haigh’s confident directorial hand. A film that speaks honestly and with big emotion without ever descending into maudlin sentimentality. With Steve Zahn and Amy Seimetz.

    Hook (35mm)

    May 26, 2018

    Fantasy / 1991 / 141 minutes

    Often compared to Peter Pan himself, it only made sense for Steven Spielberg to tackle the classic children’s fairy tale, which he did in style with 1991’s Hook. A sequel to the J.M. Barrie novel, Spielberg’s take finds Peter – played to perfection by master of mercurial Robin Williams – grown up with dreams of Neverland far behind him, at least until his own kids are kidnapped to the ageless magical realm by villainous pirate Captain Hook, played with scene-chewing gusto by Dustin Hoffman. Spielberg brings his filmmaking A-game as well as his mastery of cinematic wonder to the proceedings, taking full advantage of his magnificent cast of characters – Dante Basco as Lost Boy leader Rufio has emerged as something of a fan favorite over the years – and the splendid fantasy world production design of Norman Garwood. With Maggie Smith, Bob Hoskins, Gwyneth Paltrow and Julia Roberts as a delightfully flighty Tinkerbell.
