Films Based on Foreign Novels

 

Friday, July 7 The English Patient (1996 / 162 min. / R / CC)

Berkeley’s Saul Zaentz produced this winner of 9 Academy Awards (including Best Picture), adapted from a novel by Michael Ondaatje. The film begins at the end of WWII’s Italian campaign in a monastery where a French-Canadian nurse (Juliette Binoche) is caring for a badly burned man (Ralph Fiennes) who speaks English but cannot remember who he is. She draws memories from him of a love affair that brought him to his present circumstances.

Note: Because of the length, this movie will begin promptly at 3:00

 

Friday, July 14 Like Water for Chocolate (1992 / 105 min. / R / CC)

Adapted from a novel that employs magical realism by Mexican author Laura Esquivel. In a Mexican border town, Tita has a passionate love for Pedro, and he for her, but Tita’s widowed mother persuades Pedro to marry Tita’s sister Rosaura instead. For years, Tita expresses her thwarted love in food she prepares for the family— with supernatural results.  The winner of 10 Mexican Academy Awards, this broke box office  records for Mexican films in the United States.

 

Friday, July 21 Remains of the Day (1993 / 134 min. / PG / CC)

It is the 50’s, and Stevens (Anthony Hopkins), an English butler, reaches out to Sally Kenton (Emma Thompson), who had been the housekeeper under his supervision twenty years before. Flashbacks to their time “in service” in the 30’s, with fascism ascendant, reveal the human connection between them but also the contrast in their ways of seeing. Adapted from a novel by Kazuo Ishiguro and directed by James Ivory. Nominated for 8 Academy Awards.

 

Friday, July 28 Sense and Sensibility (1995 / 132 min. / PG / CC)

When landed gentleman Mr. Dashwood dies, his son by his first marriage inherits, leaving Dashwood’s second wife without resources and their three daughters without marital prospects. Emma Thompson plays Dashwood’s eldest daughter, and also won an Oscar for writing the screenplay based on Jane Austen’s novel. Finally, this was director Ang Lee’s first feature film outside Taiwan; he received high praise for cultural sensitivity and went on to become one of the most versatile directors of our time.  PLEASE NOTE; previously Zorba the Greek was scheduled for this date and time. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Going the Distance

 

Note:  These are all great films, entertaining for adults and young people alike (ages 9 and up).

 

Friday, August 4 The Black Stallion (1979 / 118 min. / G / CC)

Alec, a boy (Kelly Reno) traveling on an ocean liner, discovers an Arabian horse restrained with ropes in a small compartment. Later awakened when the ship begins to capsize, he goes to the horse and releases him. Swept overboard, the boy grabs hold of the horse--a very good swimmer--and wakes up on an uninhabited island. There horse and boy become inseparable. Some of the most gorgeous film footage ever recorded is devoted to their bonding experience. After they’re rescued, a first-rate horse racing story begins.

 

Friday, August 11   Strictly Ballroom (1992 / 94 min. / PG / CC)

When Australian ballroom dancer Scott Hastings (Paul Mercurio) loses his dancing partner just weeks before the Pan-Pacific Grand Prix Dancing Championship, he starts dancing with Fran (Tara Morice), a determined beginner. She brings in a Spanish style, pasodoble, which mimics the sound and intensity of the bullfight. Scott’s dance teacher mother tries to break them up in the interest of ballroom traditions. Scott’s coming of age choice does not disappoint.

 

Friday, August 18   Hoosiers (1986 / 114 min. / PG / CC)

The principal of a down-on-its-luck Indiana high school hires his old friend Dale Norman (Gene Hackman) to coach the school’s demoralized basketball team, glossing over Norman’s checkered past. First, Norman brings on the town drunk (Dennis Hopper) as his assistant. Beyond that, the new coach’s no-nonsense methods don’t please the players or the town, but the much-diminished team starts to improve. Roger Ebert writes, “What makes Hoosiers special is not its story, but its details and characters. It’s a movie that’s all heart.”

 

Friday, August 25     Searching for Bobby Fischer    (1986 / 115 min. / PG / CC)

The parents of a New York City kid, Josh Waitzkin (Max Pomeranc), discover that he’s a talented chess player. Josh has been mentored by a chess hustler named Vinnie (Laurence Fishburne) in Washington Square Park, but his parents hire Bruce Pandolfini (Ben Kingsley), an admirer of Bobby Fischer’s aggressive style, to teach him. The two masters vie for Josh’s head and heart. Roger Ebert says the film possesses “remarkable sensitivity and insight.”
