FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD - 2015-08-29

Description:

FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD

Director: Thomas Vinterberg   UK, 2015, 119 min; PG

Cast: Carey Mulligan, Matthias Schoenaerts, Michael Sheen, Tom Sturridge

“CAREY MULLIGAN IS MAGNIFICENT!” – Salon

Thomas Hardy’s classic Victorian tale about one woman’s dueling desires for feminist independence and fiery passion. Danish director Thomas Vinterberg’s latest film version is the best yet. With a steely resilience burning beneath her delicate, creamy complexion, Carey Mulligan brings remarkable nuance to the role of Bathsheba Everdene, an English country girl who inherits her late uncle’s farm, leading to a trio of romantic suitors: the earthy shepherd (Matthias Schoenaerts), the rich landowner next door (Michael Sheen), and the rakish bad boy in uniform (Tom Sturridge). Mulligan refuses to play the helpless, hapless victim. She’s strong and smart and sensual. – Entertainment Weekly

THE WOLFPACK - 2015-08-31

Description:

THE WOLFPACK

Director: Crystal Moselle   USA, 2015, 90 min; PG

 

WINNER! GRAND JURY PRIZE –Sundance Film Festival

 

“A RARE, TRANSCENDENT WORK OF ART!” – New York Magazine

 

“FIVE STARS!” –The Guardian

 

“EXTRAORDINARY!” – Time Magazine

 

"UNLIKE ANY DOCUMENTARY YOU’VE EVER SEEN.” -- Indiwire

 

"ONCE YOU’VE MET THESE KIDS YOU WON’T FORGET THEM!” -- Rolling Stone

 

“ONE OF THE MOST INCREDIBLE DOCS I’VE SEEN ANYWHERE. HAS TO BE SEEN TO BE BELIEVED!” – Toronto Star

Movies can change your life, but can they save it? For most people that probably sounds foolish, but the six brothers featured in the astonishing documentary “The Wolfpack” aren’t most people. For much of their lives, these six ingenious young men used the movies to imaginatively if not physically break out of their Lower Manhattan apartment. Even as their father all but imprisoned them, they made great metaphoric escapes by immersing themselves in the fictional realms created by directors like Francis Ford Coppola and Quentin Tarantino.

The Angulo brothers — now ages 23 to 16 — made their escapes the way many people do, by watching movies at home on VHS and DVD. But they also recreated favorites like “The Dark Knight” using handmade costumes. For them, movies were a form of self-expression as well as a kind of survival.

That makes this warm, disarmingly optimistic documentary sound desperately sad when it’s anything but. Sometimes, all you need is a great subject to make a great documentary. A gifted editor helped in shaping a streamlined chronicle of love and resilience.  -- The New York Times
