We are planning a Winter Film Series on Tuesday nights at 5 p.m.
Hope Springs Tuesday, January 15th, 2013
Meryl Streep, Tommy Lee Jones, Steve Carell
Columbia Pictures; Directed by David Frankel
Rated PG-13; 100 minutes; 2012
Kay and Arnold are a devoted couple, but decades of marriage have left Kay wanting to spice things up and reconnect with her husband. When she hears of a renowned couple’s specialist in the small town of Great Hope Springs, she attempts to persuade her skeptical husband, a steadfast man of routine, to get on a plane for a week of marriage therapy. Just convincing the stubborn Arnold to go on the retreat is hard enough – the real challenge for both of them comes as they shed their bedroom hang-ups and try to re-ignite the spark that caused them to fall for each other in the first place.
Bully Tuesday, February 19th, 2013
The Weinstein Company; Directed by Lee Hirsch
Rated PG-13; 98 minutes; 2012
This year, over 5 million American kids will be bullied at school, online, on the bus, at home, through their cell phones and on the streets of their towns, making it the most common form of violence young people in this country experience. The Bully Project is the first feature documentary film to show how we’ve all been affected by bullying, whether we’ve been victims, perpetrators or stood silent witness. The world we inhabit as adults begins on the playground.
Robot and Frank Tuesday, March 19th, 2013
Frank Langella, James Marsden, Susan Sarandon
Sony Pictures; Directed by Jake Schreier
Rated PG-13; 89 minutes; 2012
Set in the near future, Frank, a retired cat burglar, has two grown kids who are concerned he can no longer live alone. They are tempted to place him in a nursing home until Frank’s son chooses a different option: against the old man’s wishes, he buys Frank a walking, talking humanoid robot programmed to improve his physical and mental health. What follows is an often hilarious and heartwarming story about finding friends and family in the most unexpected places.
