Chlotrudis Movie of the Week + Indie Film Round-Up, July 16 - 22

Hello Chlotrudis Members!

The Kids Are All RightThere are a lot of great movie possibilities for Chlotrudis members to indulge in this week, so get out of the heat and head for a nice air conditioned theatre! The Brattle Theatre has a couple of exclusive area premiere's you can check out over the weekend. The charming, engaging and frequently hilarious BREAKING UPWARDS was an Independent Film Festival of Boston pick for 2009, while the Spanish film [•REC]2 is the sequel to [REC], which has been called "one of the scariest films of all time." But don't worry if you haven't seen the original; this one is totally and cleverly self-contained. The Coolidge Corner has the much-anticipated and critically acclaimed film by Lisa Cholodenko, THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT Ipictured left) which takes a light and entertaining look at a modern family and makes it ground-breakingly accessible to the mainstream. Fans of mysteries won't want to miss the Swedish film THE GIRL WHO PLAYED WITH FIRE, the much anticipated sequel to the highly-acclaimed THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, both adapted from the internationally best-selling novels of the same names. It opens all over, including the Kendall Square Cinema, the Capitol Theatre in Arlington, the Somerville Theatre, and the West Newton Theater. Finally, it's not Chlotrudis-eligible, but you will probably want to try to catch Christopher Nolan's new dreamscape of a film, INCEPTION. Sure, it stars Leonardo DiCaprio, but it also features Chlotrudis favorites Ellen Page and Joseph Gordon-Levitt... and it looks pretty amazing! | Read more »

Chlotrudis Monday Night at the Movies + Indie Film Round-Up, January 29 - February 4

Hello Chlotrudis Members!

While we are spending Saturday afternoon putting the ballot together for the 16th Annual Chlotrudis Awards, we still have to keep watching films for 2010 as well! This week Gil and Amanda host the Chlotrudis Monday Night at the Movies. Join them at the Brattle Theatre for the 7:30 p.m. screening of MYSTERY TEAM. This indie comedy features a trio of Hardy Boys styles detectives who struggle to handle a case beyond their experience.

Mystery Team
(2009) dir Dan Eckman, w/Donald Glover, D.C. Pierson, Dominic Dierkes, Aubrey Plaza, Matt Walsh [109 min]
The MYSTERY TEAM was once a spunky band of Hardy Boys-style, gee-whiz kid detectives – in fact, they still are, only they’re eighteen and the real world is waiting just around the corner. Formerly beloved by their hometown, they’re still storming the playground to bust little kids and their shtick is wearing thin. The members of the team have even outgrown their special talents – when they were seven they might have been the “Master Of Disguise,” the “Strongest Kid In Town,” and the “Boy Genius” but as teenagers, well, they’re kind of pathetic. When a little girl asks the gang if they could find out who murdered her parents – a crime that is a little beyond the Team’s jurisdiction – Jason, the erstwhile leader, accepts the challenge readily, over objections from his teammates who worry that the case is too dangerous. Jason makes the point that in this very real crime, the Team has an opportunity to prove they are real detectives to the town and to themselves. The Team embarks on a mystery that will take them deep into a violent conspiracy of druggies, strippers and corporate operatives. They will see their lives threatened, their friendships strained, and their claim that they are “real detectives” put to the ultimate test.

The comedic hit of last year’s Sundance Film Festival, MYSTERY TEAM is the first feature film by Internet sensations Derrick Comedy. A broad but clever comedy that is hilariously inappropriate and sublimely ridiculous.

Check out the trailer:

Another film opening this week that is a must see is Andrea Arnold's latest hit, FISH TANK. Arnold made a Chlotrudis splash with her debut film RED ROAD, and she returns wth a film that showcases a terrific performance by first-time actress Katie Jarvis. Add to that HUNGER's smokin' Michael Fassbender, and you've got a recipe for a real winner. Don't miss it. It opens this weekend at the Kendall.

Don't miss The Boston Jewish Film Festival’s sneak preview of one of the funniest Israeli films ever. In A MATTER OF SIZE, directed by Sharon Maymon and Erez Tadmor (co-director of the 2008 Festival hit, STRANGERS), four overweight friends from the Israeli city of Ramle are fed up with dieting. Head over to thge Stuart Street Playhouse Movie Theatre, 200 Stuart St. on Tuesday, February 2, 7pm. Tickets are $15 general admission; $12 discounted for students, seniors, members of the BJFF and WGBH members. Purchase tickets onlin by credit cards by clicking here, or in person one hour before showtime at the Stuart Street playhouse.

When 341-pound Herzl loses his job as a cook and starts working as a dishwasher in a Japanese restaurant, he falls in love with the world of Sumo, which honors and appreciates people as large as he is.
You'll fall in love with A Matter of Size. Click here to watch the trailer. Co-presented by the Consulate General of Israel to New England.

Chlotrudis Tuesday Night at the Movies + Indie Film Round-Up, November 6 - 12

Hello, Chlotrudis Members!

It's all about the Boston Jewish Film Festival this week so please join us on Tuesday evening for the 8:30pm screening of HE'S MY GIRL at the Kendall Square Cinema. This delightful French farce receives it's North American debut at the festival. The late starting time of this short, 90 minute film will allow us for a nice, leisurely dinner beforehand, so hopefully we'll see you there!

HE'S MY GIRL
Director Jean-Jacques Zilbermann checks in on Simon and Rosalie, the stars of his MAN IS A WOMAN (1998 Festival) ten years after their marriage breaks up. Simon’s Ashkenazi mother accepts that he’s gay, but doesn’t realize that her pretty nurse is the Arab cross-dresser who steals her son’s heart. In the midst of this farce, Rosalie returns to Paris to star in “Fiddler on the Roof,” with her new family in tow: a husband and the precocious son whom Simon hasn’t seen in a decade. It’s a bit of a tzimmes, of the tastiest sort. It also features Elsa Zylberstein, a Chlotrudis nominee from last year's I'VE LOVED YOU SO LONG.
Director: Jean-Jacques Zilbermann
Cast: Antoine de Caunes; Mehdi Dehbi; Elsa Zylberstein

Check out the original French language trailer:

THE WOLBERG FAMILY (LA FAMILLE
WOLBERG)
If you missed this week's screening of THE WOLBERG FAMILY, for which Chlotrudis is a Community Partner, don't worry, so did I! But you have another chance to join me on Thursday, November 12, 9:00 pm, Museum of Fine Arts. This East Coast premiere was a highlight of this year’s Directors’ Fortnight at the Cannes Film Festival. THE WOLBERG FAMILY is actress and screenwriter Axelle Ropert’s first feature film. She labels it a “family melodrama.” Simon Wolberg is mayor of a French provincial town, crazy in love with his wife, a nosy father to his lovely young daughter and dorky son and a bit of an annoyance to his own father. Will his obsession with family cause him to unravel? When is it time to let go – or to leave?

I plan on catching a few other films at the Festival if I can squeeze them into my schedule, but I really want to urge you to try to catch JAFFA, Saturday, November 7, 9:30pm at the Coolidge Corner Theatre. Directed by Keren Yedaya, who was responsible for one of my favorite films of 2005, OR (MY TREASURE), JAFFA again stars the magnificent Dana Ivgy and the multiple Chlotrudis-nominee Ronit Elkabetz, this time in an Israeli/Palestinian Romeo & Juliet. I caught this film in Toronto, and it's pretty powerful stuff. You should also consider the animated Australian film MARY AND MAX, featuring the voices of Toni Collette and Philip Seymour Hoffman. It's a comical claymation feature film that spans 20 years and 2 continents. Look for MARY AND MAX on Thursday, November 12 at the Coolidge Corner Theatre. It's a great line-up... do yourself a favor and check it out!

After weeks of admittedly fascinating documentaries, I'm pleased to report that this week's Sunday Eye Opener is a narrative feature! Join us on Sunday, November 8, at the Brattle Theatre for an 11am screening of WELCOME TO ACADEMIA. Director Kirk Davis assembles a hip indie cast including James LeGros (THE LAST WINTER, LOVELY & AMAZING, SAFE), Jess Weixler (TEETH), and Callie Thorne (HYSTERICAL BLINDNESS, NEXT STOP, WONDERLAND) to explore the dark, comedic twists of academia. Sex and power games go hand in hand in WELCOME TO ACADEMIA, a dark satire that uses the university as a metaphor for personal and professional relationships. In this dark comedy that takes place at fictional Victorian University, faculty and administrators jockey for power in the classroom, the boardroom, and the bedroom. Amidst all their petty intrigues, a young graduate student is forced to experience a life lesson not offered on the regular curriculum.

For this week's film, the Sunday Eye-Opener group is going to be a test audience! Like COLMA, THE MUSICAL! a couple of years ago, this week's Eye Opener screening is being provided directly by the filmmaker so that they can get our feedback on their film. They are very excited to hear what you all think. We will be distributing a survey after the screening to capture your thoughts. Come be a part of the making of a film!

If you're a fan of "The Office" (and who isn't?) you'll want to check out the evening screenings of BRIEF INTERVIEWS WITH HIDEOUS MEN, Friday and Saturday, November 6 & 7 at the Kendall Square Cinema because director John Krasinski will be in attendance to introduce the film and answer questions. Adapted and directed by Krasinski (THE OFFICE, AWAY WE GO), BRIEF INTERVIEWS WITH HIDEOUS MEN is a darkly funny and disturbing exploration of men and their complex relationships with women. Based on the book by David Foster Wallace, the film features an all-star cast that includes Timothy Hutton, Ben Shenkman, Christopher Meloni, Ben Gibbard, Will Arnett, Chris Messina, Bobby Cannavale, Will Forte, Dennis O'Hare, Lou Taylor Pucci, Max Minghella,
and Julianne Nicholson.

Below is the schedule for John Krasinski's in person appearances:
Friday:
7PM Intro & Q&A Following the show
9PM Intro

Saturday:
7PM Intro & Q&A Following the show
9PM Intro

See you at the Movies!

Chlotrudis Monday Night at the Movies + Indie Film Round-Up, October 23 - 29

Hello, Chlotrudis Members!

Brace youselves... Chris has selected Lars von Trier's ANTICHRIST as next week's Chlotrudis Monday Movie of the Week. The controversial director of DOGVILLE, DANCER IN THE DARK and BREAKING THE WAVES has done it again in this psychosexual fable starring Willem Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg. Join Chris on Monday for the 7pm screening of ANTICHRIST at the Kendall Square Cinema for this challening and controversial film.

A grieving couple retreat to 'Eden,' their isolated cabin in the woods, where they hope to repair their broken hearts and troubled marriage. But nature takes its course and things go from bad to worse… Willem Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg (winner of the Best Actress Award at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival) give brave, outstanding performances in the new provocation from writer/director Lars von Trier. ANTICHRIST is a totally uncompromising psychological horror film conceived and made while the director was experiencing emotional challenges in his own life. Reviewing the intense and controversial film at its Cannes premiere, Roger Ebert called it "powerfully made" and continued: "The performances by Willem Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg are heroic and fearless…Von Trier's visual command is striking…And if you can think beyond what he shows to what he implies, its depths are frightening…Von Trier has reached me and shaken me."
Director: Lars von Trier
Cast: Willem Dafoe, Charlotte Gainsbourg

Check out the trailer:

The Sunday Eye-Opener, a co-presentation of Chlotrudis and the Brattle Film Foundation is back in swing and we're this week features another strong documentary. THE GOOD SOLDIER is a powerful documentary follows the journeys of five combat veterans from different generations of American wars. In extensive and emotional interviews these soldiers recount their experiences as they sign up, go into battle, and eventually change their minds about what it means to be a "good soldier." THE GOOD SOLDIER is an extraordinary film that transcends political lines and speaks to all sides. The Sunday Eye-Opner is one of the most popular of the local Chlotrudis programs, runs during the Spring, Fall, and Winter and features either a special sneak preview or an undistributed independent film, followed by a moderated audience discussion. To insure that you know what films will ne playing you'll need to join the Sunday Eye Opener email list to find out what's playing. Visit the Sunday Eye Opener page to learn more about the program, join the email list, or purchase a subscription. Complimentary coffee, tea, and pastries included. Admission is $10 or you can purchase an 8-week subscription: $50 general public; $30 for Brattle or Chlotrudis members; $20 for members of both organizations. This week's Sunday Eye Opener starts at 11 a.m. on Sunday, October 25.

Transportation: the “B” Boston College Green Line, the first stop outward bound after Kenmore Square.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 29-AN EVENING WITH MICHAEL PAUL STEPHENSON
Who could have imagined that the execrable 1990 horror flick, Troll 2, would
not disappear but become an obsessive cult movie shown around the world, celebrated for being abominably bad? Stephenson, the once-child star, tracks down the original cast—some genial, some goony, some certifiably crazy—for his good-natured autobiographical documentary, BEST WORST MOVIE, a super hit at the 2009 SXSW Film Festival. And let’s not forget Troll 2’s ill-natured Italian director, Claudio Fragasso, who, alone in the world , believes he made a little masterpiece. A Boston premiere.

See you at the Movies!
