    Miami Beach Premiere Engagement!

    FIRST REFORMED

    Directed by Paul Schrader/2018/1hr, 48mins.

    Starring Ethan Hawke, Amanda Seyfried, and Cedric Kyles


    Reverend Ernst Toller (Ethan Hawke) is a solitary, middle-aged parish pastor at a small Dutch Reform church in upstate New York on the cusp of celebrating its 250th anniversary. Once a stop on the Underground Railroad, the church is now a tourist attraction catering to a dwindling congregation, eclipsed by its nearby parent church, Abundant Life, with its sraedtate-of-the-art facilities and 5,000-strong flock. When a pregnant parishioner (Amanda Seyfried) asks Reverend Toller to counsel her husband, a radical environmentalist, the clerergyman finds himself plunged into his own tormented past, and equally despairing future, until he finds redemption in an act of grandiose violence. From writer-director Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver; American Gigolo; Affliction) comes a gripping thriller about a crisis of faith that is at once personal, political, and planetary.

    The Real Life Story of the author of FRANKENSTEIN

    MARY SHELLEY

    Directed by HAIFAA AL-MANSOUR/2018/IRELAND/UK/121mins.

    With Elle Fanning, Maisie Williams, Bel Powley, Douglas Booth,

    Joanne Froggatt, Stephan Dillane


    She will forever be remembered as the writer who gave the world Frankenstein. But the real life story of Mary Shelley—and the creation of her immortal monster—is nearly as fantastical as her fiction. Raised by a renowned philosopher father (Stephen Dillane) in 18th-century London, Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin (Elle Fanning) is a teenage dreamer determined to make her mark on the world when she meets the dashing and brilliant poet Percy Shelley (Douglas Booth). So begins a torrid, bohemian love affair marked by both passion and personal tragedy that will transform Mary and fuel the writing of her Gothic masterwork. Imbued with the imaginative spirit of its heroine, Mary Shelley brings to life the world of a trailblazing woman who defied convention and channeled her innermost demons into a legend for the ages.

    MARY SHELLEY IS A LUSCIOUS LOOKING SPECTACLE, DRENCHED IN THE COLORS AND VISCERAL SENSATIONS OF NATURE, the sensuality of young lovers, the passionate disappointment of loss and betrayal. But above all it is a film about ideas that breaks out of the well-worn mold of period drama (partly, anyway) by reaching deeply into the mind of the extraordinary woman who wrote the Gothic evergreen Frankenstein”-Deborah Young, Hollywood Reporter

    Highlights of World Cinema

    THE AUTEURS INSPIRED BY GERMAN EXPRESSIONISM

    THE LAST LAUGH

    (Der letzte Mann)

    Directed by F. W. MURNAU/1924/Germany/90mins.

    With Emil Jannings


    One of the crowning achievements of the German expressionist movement, Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau’s The Last Laugh (Der letzte Mann) stars Emil Jannings stars as an aging doorman whose happiness crumbles when he is relieved of the duties and uniform which had for years been the foundation of his happiness and pride. Through Jannings’s colossal performance, The Last Laugh becomes more than the plight of a single doorman, but a mournful dramatization of the frustration and anguish of the universal working class. Featuring a new musical score by the Berklee College of Music, as well as the original score by Giuseppe Becca, this is the definitive edition of the landmark classic, mastered from a 2K restoration by the Friedrich-Wilhelm-Murnau-Stiftung.

    "A MASTERPIECE OF THE GERMAN SILENT CINEMA, F. W. Murnau's 1924 film has never looked as dazzling as it does in this new edition from Kino International." -Dave Kehr, The New York Times
    "F. W. Murnau's 1924 drama 'The Last Laugh' may well be the apogee of silent-film production....The visual clarity of the new release reveals the extraordinary means by which Murnau united the emotional, political, psychological, and moral domains in his quasi-Biblical yet modern and naturalistic fable."-Richard Brody, The New Yorker
    A RATING -"Rightly praised by Alfred Hitchcock as 'almost the perfect film.'" -Tim Purtell, Entertainment Weekly

    Miami Beach Premiere Engagement!

    FIRST REFORMED

    Directed by Paul Schrader/2018/1hr, 48mins.

    Starring Ethan Hawke, Amanda Seyfried, and Cedric Kyles


    Reverend Ernst Toller (Ethan Hawke) is a solitary, middle-aged parish pastor at a small Dutch Reform church in upstate New York on the cusp of celebrating its 250th anniversary. Once a stop on the Underground Railroad, the church is now a tourist attraction catering to a dwindling congregation, eclipsed by its nearby parent church, Abundant Life, with its sraedtate-of-the-art facilities and 5,000-strong flock. When a pregnant parishioner (Amanda Seyfried) asks Reverend Toller to counsel her husband, a radical environmentalist, the clerergyman finds himself plunged into his own tormented past, and equally despairing future, until he finds redemption in an act of grandiose violence. From writer-director Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver; American Gigolo; Affliction) comes a gripping thriller about a crisis of faith that is at once personal, political, and planetary.

    The Real Life Story of the author of FRANKENSTEIN

    MARY SHELLEY

    Directed by HAIFAA AL-MANSOUR/2018/IRELAND/UK/121mins.

    With Elle Fanning, Maisie Williams, Bel Powley, Douglas Booth,

    Joanne Froggatt, Stephan Dillane


    She will forever be remembered as the writer who gave the world Frankenstein. But the real life story of Mary Shelley—and the creation of her immortal monster—is nearly as fantastical as her fiction. Raised by a renowned philosopher father (Stephen Dillane) in 18th-century London, Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin (Elle Fanning) is a teenage dreamer determined to make her mark on the world when she meets the dashing and brilliant poet Percy Shelley (Douglas Booth). So begins a torrid, bohemian love affair marked by both passion and personal tragedy that will transform Mary and fuel the writing of her Gothic masterwork. Imbued with the imaginative spirit of its heroine, Mary Shelley brings to life the world of a trailblazing woman who defied convention and channeled her innermost demons into a legend for the ages.

    MARY SHELLEY IS A LUSCIOUS LOOKING SPECTACLE, DRENCHED IN THE COLORS AND VISCERAL SENSATIONS OF NATURE, the sensuality of young lovers, the passionate disappointment of loss and betrayal. But above all it is a film about ideas that breaks out of the well-worn mold of period drama (partly, anyway) by reaching deeply into the mind of the extraordinary woman who wrote the Gothic evergreen Frankenstein”-Deborah Young, Hollywood Reporter

    Highlights of World Cinema

    1930s

    THE GOLDEN AGE OF HOLLYWOOD

    THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN

    Directed by JAMES WHALE/1935/1hr, 15mins.

    With Boris Karloff, Colin Clive, Elsa Lanchester


    Austrian Film Kurier, THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN, 1935. #MBCarchive

    Based on the characters in the Mary Shelley novel Frankenstein, in fact generally considered closer to their spirit than in the original 1931 film, Dr. Frankenstein creates a mate for his monster in this wildly successful and at times hilarious sequel. Elsa Lanchester plays the double role of Shelley herself, relating the story of her own creation, as well as the Bride, one of the most famous and emulated roles in the history of cinema.  

    “WHALE’S MOST PERFECTLY REALIZED MOVIE, A DELIGHT FROM START TO FINISH”-Time Out

    “Whale added an element of playful sexuality to this version, casting the proceedings in a bizarre visual framework that makes this film a good deal more surreal than the original.”-Chicago Reader

    AVA

    Directed by SADAF FOROUGHI/Canada/Iran/2018/1hr, 44mins.

    With Mahour Jabbari, Bahar Nouhian, Leili Rashidi, Vahid Aghapour


    Based on her own adolescent experiences, Sadaf Foroughi’s Ava is a gripping debut about a young girl’s coming-of-age in a strict, traditional society. Living with her well-to-do parents in Tehran, Ava is a bright and focused teen whose concerns — friendships, music, social status, academic performance — resemble that of nearly any teenager. When Ava’s mistrustful and overprotective mother questions her relationship with a boy — going so far as to visit a gynecologist — Ava is overwhelmed by a newfound rage. Formerly a model student, Ava begins to rebel against the strictures imposed by her parents, her school, and the society at large.
