November 2015: Films of the West

 

Friday, November 6               My Darling Clementine                              (1946 / 97 min. / Approved)

Wyatt Earp (Henry Fonda) takes the job of marshal in Tombstone, aiming to avenge his younger brother, who’s been killed there. Earp and Doc Holliday (Victor Mature) hook up to find the killer just as Doc’s paramour, Clementine Carter, arrives from the east. Breathtaking cinematography, a classic story and great performances by Fonda and Mature make this one of director John Ford’s finest films. “Poetry,” said one critic.

 

Friday, November 13             Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid      (1969 / 110 min. / M—mature audiences)

Butch Cassidy (Paul Newman) and the Sundance Kid (Robert Redford) were outlaws on a disappearing American frontier at the turn of the 19th century. William Goldman studied the Cassidy story for years before turning it into an Oscar-winning screenplay in which characters and dialogue gently parody the western genre. The film is funny, at times almost whimsical. Butch Cassidy breaks the “cowboy movie” mold, helped quite a bit by comic chemistry between Newman and Redford. The cracking wise generation of the late 60s, when the film was made, got what this was about. 

 

Friday, November 20            Smoke Signals                                             (1998 / 89 min. / PG-13)

Victor and Thomas are childhood friends, but wildly different—Victor knowing and stoic, Thomas inquisitive and sunny. This is the story of their trip from the Coeur D’Alene Reservation to Phoenix to collect the ashes of Victor’s father, who had loomed large for each of them. Made using all Native American personnel, the film is in the best indie tradition and critically acclaimed for its humor, poignancy, writing and acting. Don’t miss it. We’re showing it in honor of Native American Heritage Month.

 

Friday, November 27             Library Closed / Day After Thanksgiving                    No Screening—Happy Thanksgiving!

 

December 2015

Comedy Drama Around the World

 

 

Friday, December 4            Sweet and Lowdown   (1999 / 95 min. PG-13)

It’s the 1930s in America. A talented but unhinged jazz guitarist, Emmet Ray (Sean Penn), falls for a mute laundress (Samantha Morton).They form a sweet but troubled relationship. As usual, director Woody Allen serves up a tantalizing mix of period music along with his engaging script. Both Penn and Morton were nominated for Academy Awards.

 

Friday, December 11 Good Bye, Lenin!   (2003 / 121 min. / R)

In the late 1980s a devout East German Communist sees her son, Alex, being arrested in an anti-government demonstration, has a heart attack and falls into a coma. When she wakes a year later, her doctor warns that sudden shocks could kill her, leading Alex to go to extreme lengths to hide from her that the Berlin Wall has fallen and East Germany is kaput.

 

Friday, December 18 The History Boys (2006 / 109 min. / R)

Adapted by Alan Bennett from his own award-winning play of the same name, The History Boys is set in an English boys’ high school in 1983. A few charming boys are studying like crazy for Oxford and Cambridge, but especially relish the teaching methods of their literature instructor, Hector, for whom they act out what they’re reading. Witty dialogue and fine performances make this a pure joy.

 

Friday, December 25 No Screening—Happy Christmas!
