Not Rated; 117 minutes, in French with English subtitles.

Two of French cinema's biggest stars shine in this bittersweet drama about the unlikely friendship that develops between Claire (Catherine Frot), a talented but tightly wound midwife, and Béatrice (Catherine Deneuve), the estranged, free-spirited mistress of Claire's late father.

Though polar opposites in almost every way, the two come to rely on each other as they cope with the unusual circumstance that brought them together in this sharp character study from the César-award winning director Martin Provost (Séraphine).

Not Rated, 86 minutes. Playing Friday at 5:30 pm, Saturday 1 & 7:30 pm & Sunday at 3 pm.

In a small New Jersey town on the night of Orson Welles’s legendary 1938 “War of the Worlds” radio broadcast, the hoax that terrified millions into believing Martians were invading America, citizens face what they think is their last night on Earth.

The over-worked town’s mayor Clark (Tony Hale, “Veep”) will take a chance on love. The neglected housewife, Lorraine (Heather Burns, “Manchester By The Sea”) will break free from her big-cheese husband (Sam Jaeger, “Parenthood”). The demure schoolteacher Peg (Anna Camp, “Pitch Perfect”) will become a warrior. The aimless reverend (Dan Bakkedahl, “Life in Pieces”) will rediscover his faith. The scared Sheriff (Mel Rodriguez, “The Last Man on Earth”) will find his courage. And the reclusive war veteran (Raymond J. Barry, “Training Day”) will become a hero as he convinces the town to fight the aliens. All these characters join forces for a final “battle” that leads to a surprising and hilarious outcome.

Rated R; 100 minutes, in Danish, German and English.

As World War Two comes to an end, a group of German POWs, boys rather than men, are captured by the Danish army and forced to engage in a deadly task – to defuse and clear land mines from the Danish coastline. With little or no training, the boys soon discover that the war is far from over.

Inspired by real events, Land of Mine exposes the untold story of one tragic moment in post-war history, and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.

The Trip to Spain

Film

Not Rated; 115 minutes.

Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon reunite with director Michael Winterbottom for another chapter in their hilarious road trip series.

This time taking their wit and appetites on a tour through picturesque Spain’s finest fine dining, Coogan and Brydon trade celebrity impressions and witty banter over paella and gazpacho, their comic observations on fame and friendship as dry as the finest Spanish wine. Older and maybe wiser, the pair's conversation roams over many topics, but always seems to come back to fame, family, and getting older.

Brydon is now a father, while Coogan is basking in the critical response to a lauded film performance (which he is happy to remind Brydon of at every opportunity), even as his agent seems to be losing interest in his career. The Trip to Spain is a delightful road trip comedy that feels like a vacation with old friends.

Film

Not Rated; 100 minutes, in French, German, English & Polish.

In 1903 the scientist Marie Curie (Karolina Gruszka) was the first woman to receive the Nobel Prize for Physics together with her husband Pierre (Charles Berling). But only a short time later, with just mid-thirties and as a young mother of two children, she loses Pierre by accident. In a world dominated by men, she makes her way steadfastly, continues her research alone, and is the first woman to receive a chair at the Sorbonne in Paris.
 
When she falls in love with the married scientist Paul Langevin (Arieh Worthalter) after years of mourning and engages in an affair with him, she is however a violent scandal. Just as soon as it becomes known that she is receiving her second Nobel Prize - now for chemistry - the Paris press publishes correspondence between Marie and Paul, who passed on his vindictive wife.
 
In the full glow of her professional fame, the brilliant scientist Marie Curie is thus the target of bad defamation. To the banal adulteress, she must bitterly learn that reason and passion are not compatible.

Released in 1968, the White Album’s thirty songs span almost every style of music—from hard rock to country to chamber music to avant garde.

In this multimedia presentation, Mr. Freiman transports his audience into Abbey Road Studio for a look at the revolutionary techniques used during the production of “Revolution,” “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” “Blackbird,” and other songs from the White Album. It will be an educational journey into the creative process of The Beatles performances and recording sessions, allowing the audience to see and hear the evolution of these groundbreaking songs and their lasting influence on popular music.

Not Rated, 96 minutes, in Hebrew with English subtitles. Playing Friday 5:30 pm, Saturday 1 & 7:30 pm & Sunday 3 & 6 pm

 
On the day of Osher's bar mitzvah, the men look up adoringly at the women's balcony where their wives, daughters, sisters, cousins, and grandmothers are gathered. Then disaster strikes: the floor under the balcony gives way, leaving several people injured and one comatose.

When Rabbi David arrives, the congregation gathers around him now that their elderly rabbi is distraught and confused in the wake of the accident. Taking advantage of his new-found authority, he insists that the men have not done enough to ensure their women's modesty, and that the balcony tragedy is a divine warning to that effect.

This leads to a clash with Osher's grandmother Ettie, a pious woman who cannot accept the notion that God demands blind subjugation. Ettie and her friends raise money to restore the women's balcony, but Rabbi David decides to distribute those funds elsewhere. A feud breaks out, driving a wedge between husbands and wives — one that they can only repair by coming together in faith and harmony.

Not Rated, 82 minutes. Playing Friday at 5:30 pm, Saturday at 1 & 7:30 pm & Sunday at 3 pm.

In 1991, Mickey Lemle first introduced the wider world to the Dalai Lama through his documentary “Compassion in Exile: The Story of the 14th Dalai Lama.” Now, as Tenzin Gyatso enters his 8th decade, Mickey revisits his friend to examine the then and now for the Tibetan people and how the science of brain-mind-consciousness fits well within Buddhist psychology.

Will he be the last Dalai Lama? As a refugee in Dharamsala, India, he has stated if and when Tibet is free, he would step down as a leader to become a simple Buddhist monk. His Holiness has also said publicly that he will not reincarnate, given that the Chinese government wants to have a say in finding the “unmistaken child” who would become the 15th Dalai Lama.

“The Last Dalai Lama?” gives a rare and intimate look at one of the most beloved sentient beings the world has ever known, with appearances by Philip Glass, former President George W. Bush, and many more. –Cynthia Kane
