Farmland
(NR)   100  minutes
Thursday, May 1st at 7pm



Premiere Fundraising Event To Benefit the Root Center!

Most Americans have never stepped foot on a farm or ranch or even talked to the people who grow and raise the food we eat. Farmland takes an intimate look at the lives of farmers and ranchers in their twenties, all of whom are now responsible for running their farming businesses. Academy Award-winning director James Moll (The Last Days) traveled across the country meeting young farmers and ranchers, giving audiences a rare opportunity to step inside the world of farming for a first-hand glimpse into their lives. Learn about their high-risk/high reward jobs and passion for a way of life that has been passed down from generation to generation, yet continues to evolve.

MPAA Rating: NR

 

Le Week-End
(R)   150  minutes
1:15  3:15  5:15  7:10  9:05



Academy Award winner Jim Broadbent (Iris) and Lindsay Duncan (Mansfield Park) give exquisite performances as Nick and Meg, a long-married British couple revisiting Paris for the first time since their honeymoon in an attempt to rekindle their relationship. During a two-day escapade, diffident, wistful Nick and demanding, take-charge Meg careen from harmony to disharmony to resignation and back again as they take stock of half a lifetime of deep tenderness—and even deeper regret. A surprise invitation from Nick's old friend Morgan (Jeff Goldblum), an amusingly boorish American academic with a fancy Parisian address, soon leads them to an unexpectedly hopeful vision of what their love and marriage might still become. This magically buoyant, bittersweet comedy-drama is a new peak in the ongoing collaboration between Notting Hill director Roger Michell and screenwriter Hanif Kureishi (Venus, The Mother).

MPAA Rating: R for language and some sexual content

 

Under the Skin

From visionary director Jonathan Glazer (Sexy Beast, Birth) comes a stunning career transformation, a masterpiece of existential science fiction that journeys to the heart of what it means to be human, extraterrestrial—or somewhere in between. A voluptuous woman of unknown origin (Scarlett Johansson) combs the highway in search of isolated or forsaken men, luring a succession of lost souls into an otherworldly lair. They are seduced, stripped of their humanity, and never heard from again. Based on the novel by Michael Faber, Under the Skin examines human experience from the perspective of an unforgettable heroine who grows too comfortable in her borrowed skin, until she is abducted into humanity with devastating results.

MPAA Rating: R for graphic nudity, sexual content, some violence and language

In the fascinating sci-fi thriller Transcendence, Dr. Will Caster (Johnny Depp), the foremost researcher in the field of Artificial Intelligence, is working to create a sentient machine that combines the collective intelligence of everything ever known with the full range of human emotions. His highly controversial experiments have made him famous, but they have also made him the prime target of anti-technology extremists who will do whatever it takes to stop him. Terminally ill, Will finds a way to download his brain into a computer, creating his own transcendence. For his wife Evelyn (Rebecca Hall) and best friend Max Waters (Paul Bettany), both fellow researchers, the question is not if this can be done...but if it should be. Their worst fears are realized as Will's thirst for knowledge evolves into a seemingly infinite quest for power, to what end is unknown. The only thing that is becoming terrifyingly clear is that there may be no way to stop him. Also starring Morgan Freeman.

MPAA Rating: PG13 for sci-fi action and violence, some bloody images, brief strong language and sensuality

He returns in The Raid 2 with even more incredible action stunts than before. After fighting his way out of a building filled with gangsters and madmen, rookie Jakarta cop Rama (Uwais) thought it was done and he could resume a normal life. He couldn't have been more wrong. His triumph attracted the attention of predators farther up the food chain. His family at risk, Rama has only one choice to protect his wife and infant son: he must go undercover to enter the criminal underworld himself and climb through the hierarchy of competing forces until it leads him to the corrupt politicians and police pulling the strings at the top of the heap. Getting himself thrown into prison, Rama saves the boss gangster's son in a giant melee involving all the prisoners and all the guards in a muddy exercise yard. Upon his release, Rama joins the gang and becomes a trusted insider, laying his life on the line in a desperate all-or-nothing gamble to bring the whole rotten enterprise to an end.

In the romantic drama The Lunchbox, middle-class housewife Ila (Nimrat Kaur) is trying once again to add some spice to her marriage, this time through her cooking. She desperately hopes that a new recipe will finally arouse some kind of reaction from her neglectful husband. She prepares a special lunchbox to be delivered to him at work, but, unbeknownst to her, it is mistakenly delivered to another office worker, Saajan (Irrfan Khan, Life of Pi), a lonely man on the verge of retirement. Curious about the lack of reaction from her husband, Ila puts a little note in the following day's lunchbox, in the hopes of getting to the bottom of the mystery. This begins a series of lunchbox notes between Saajan and Ila, and the mere comfort of communicating with a stranger anonymously soon evolves into an unexpected friendship. Gradually, their notes become little confessions about their loneliness, memories, regrets, fears, and even small joys. In the big city of Mumbai that so often crushes hopes and dreams, Ila and Saajan become lost in a virtual relationship that could jeopardize both their realities. Co-written and directed by Ritesh Batra. (Partially subtitled)
