Sneak Peek - opening film for Fall 2011

We haven't completed the season for the fall yet, but here is the first film we will screen:

35 Shots of Rum, 2007
: Claire Denis

This heartfelt slice-of-life drama by filmmaker Claire Denis tells the story of widower Lionel (Alex Descas), a train driver, and his grown daughter, Sophie (Mati Diop). The two spend most of their time together, but change is in the cards. A neighbor (Grégoire Colin) becomes attracted to Sophie, a family friend retires and Lionel tries to maintain a friendship with his ex-girlfriend (Nicole Dogue).(from

This will be the first of two films directed by Claire Denis.

The season will also feature Susanne Bier's (After the Wedding, Brothers) Oscar-winning latest, and films starring Kristen Scott Thomas and Tilda Swinton.

We're excited to share the Fall 2011 season with you . . . the official season list will be posted soon.
