AFTER THE STORM (Umi Yori Mo Mada Fukaku)

 

Directed by Hirokazu Kore-eda

Rated NR 117 minutes

Dwelling on his past glory as a prize-winning author, Ryota wastes the money he makes as a private detective on gambling and can barely pay child support. Renewing contact with his initially distrusting family, Ryota struggles to take back control of his existence and to find a lasting place in the life of his young son – until a stormy summer night offers them a chance to truly bond again. This lovely film offers timeless and cross cultural observations about parental responsibilities, personal bonds, and the capacity for forgiveness. In Japanese with English subtitles.

FRANTZ
Directed by François Ozon
Rated PG-13 114 minutes

A mysterious French World War I veteran suddenly appears in a small German town, placing flowers on Frantz’s grave. His bereft fiancée, Anna, gradually gets closer to the handsome and melancholy young man, as she learns of his deep friendship with Frantz. Director Ozon explores the characters’ conflicting feelings – survivor’s guilt, anger at one’s losses, the overriding desire for happiness despite everything that has come before, and the longing for sexual, romantic and familial attachments. A provocative, beautiful period piece. In French and German with English subtitles.

KEDI
Directed by Ceyda Torun
Rated NR (suitable for children) 98 minutes
An open, tender-hearted meditation on the relationship between felines and humans, Kedi offers a (literal) cat’s-eye view of Istanbul. Director Ceyda Torun’s roaming camera follows stray cats as they crawl, bound, lounge, sneak, peek, beg, and steal their way through the streets of the Turkish metropolis. Unlike in Europe and America, where strays are rounded up and placed in pounds, Istanbul allows cats to make their homes where they please, relying on the city’s denizens to communally care for them. In Turkish with English subtitles.

MY ENTIRE HIGH SCHOOL SINKING INTO THE SEA
Directed by Dash Shaw
Rated PG-13 75 minutes

From acclaimed graphic novelist Dash Shaw comes an audacious debut that is equal parts disaster cinema, high school comedy and blockbuster satire, told through a dream-like mixed media animation style that incorporates drawings, paintings and collage. Hailed as “the most original animated film of the year” and “John Hughes for the Adult Swim generation” (Indiewire), the film’s everyday concerns of friendships, cliques and young love remind us how the high school experience continues to shape who we become, even in the most unusual of circumstances.
Voices by Jason Schwartzman, Susan Sarandon,Lena Dunham, Maya Rudolph, Reggie Watts.
