Hardcastle, a man of substance, looks forward to acquainting his
daughter with his old pal's son with a view to marriage. But thanks to
playboy Lumpkin, he's mistaken by his prospective son-in-law Marlow for
an innkeeper, his daughter for the local barmaid. The good news is,
while Marlow can barely speak to a woman of quality he's a charmer with
those of a different stamp. And so, as Hardcastle's indignation
intensifies, Miss Hardcastle's appreciation for her misguided suitor
soars. Misdemeanours multiply, love blossoms, mayhem ensues.

One of the great, generous-hearted and ingenious comedies of the English
language, Goldsmith's She Stoops to Conquer offers a celebration of
chaos, courtship and the dysfunctional family.


*Coriolanus <>
Starting Fri 4/27: *12:20, 4:00, 7:05, 9:30*
*Ralph Fiennes stars in his directorial debut and an adaptation of
Shakespeare. Caius Martius 'Coriolanus' (Ralph Fiennes), a revered and
feared Roman General is at odds with the city of Rome and his fellow
citizens. Pushed by his controlling and ambitious mother Volumnia
(Vanessa Redgrave) to seek the exalted and powerful position of Consul,
he is loath to ingratiate himself with the masses whose votes he needs
in order to secure the office. When the public refuses to support him,
Coriolanus's anger prompts a riot that culminates in his expulsion from
Rome. The banished hero then allies himself with his sworn enemy Tullus
Aufidius (Gerard Butler) to take his revenge on the city. (122 mins, R)

**** St Louis Post-Dispatch "That action is bloody, but Fiennes' choices
as director are unassailably apt and artful. Coriolanus is a triumph."

We conclude April's Tower Through Time heavyweight bout, Buster vs
Keaton, with a classic from Keaton, Steamboat Bill Jr. Keaton stars as
the effete son of a cantankerous riverboat captain who comes to join his
father's crew. (70 mins, Not Rated)

**** Slant "Against the wind and the death throes of silent comedy,
Keaton stands tall."

Directed by Sundance and Emmy-award winning filmmaker, Lee Hirsch, Bully
is a beautifully cinematic, character-driven documentary. At its heart
are those with huge stakes in this issue whose stories each represent a
different facet of America's bullying crisis. Bully follows five kids
and families over the course of a school year. Stories include two
families who have lost children to suicide and a mother awaiting the
fate of her 14-year-old daughter who has been incarcerated after
bringing a gun on her school bus. With an intimate glimpse into homes,
classrooms, cafeterias and principals' offices, the film offers insight
into the often cruel world of the lives of bullied children. (99 mins,

**** Time "A documentary as vivid as any horror film, as heartbreaking
as any Oscar-worthy drama."

Master chronicler of post-War England, Terence Davies directs Rachel
Weisz as a woman whose overpowering love threatens her well-being and
alienates the men in her life. In a deeply vulnerable performance,
Rachel Weisz plays Hester Collyer, the wife of an upper-class judge and
a free spirit trapped in a passionless marriage. Her encounter with
Freddie Page (Tom Hiddleston), a troubled former Royal Air Force pilot,
throws her life in turmoil, as their erotic relationship leaves her
emotionally stranded and physically isolated. The film is an adaptation
of British playwright Terence Rattigan's 1952 play, featuring one of the
greatest roles for an actress in modern theatre. (98 mins, R)

**** Los Angeles Times "Exceptionally well-made and completely fearless
in its depiction of the widest range of romantic emotions, this is a
film as fiercely committed to passion as its heroine, and that's saying
a lot."

Eliezer and Uriel Shkolnik are both eccentric professors, who have
dedicated their lives to their work in Talmudic Studies. The father,
Eliezer, is a stubborn purist who fears the establishment and has never
been recognized for his work. While his son, Uriel, is an up-and-coming
star in the field, who appears to feed on accolades, endlessly seeking
recognition. Then one day, the tables turn. A darkly funny film from
Israel that was nominate for Best Foreign Film at this year's Academy
Awards. (103 mins, PG, Hebrew w/ subtitles)

**** Roger Ebert "It's one of the smartest and most merciless comedies
to come along in a while. It centers on an area of fairly narrow
interest, but in its study of human nature, it is deep and takes no

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at this year's Cannes Film Festival and a
Golden Globe nominee for Best Foreign Language Film, the deeply moving
new film by the Dardenne brothers delves into the emotional life of
troubled 11-year-old Cyril. When his father abandons him, Cyril
obsessively searches for his bicycle - placing his last bit of hope in
this symbol of their relationship. Almost by accident, he becomes the
ward of a kind hairdresser, who seems surprised to find herself so
determined to help him. With his wild, unpredictable behavior and his
disastrous search for father figures, Cyril risks losing her - though
she refuses to give up without a fight. (87 mins, Not Rated, French w/

When Britain's leading fisheries expert (Ewan McGregor) is approached by
a consultant (Emily Blunt) to help realize a sheikh's vision of bringing
the sport of fly-fishing to the desert, he immediately thinks the
project is both absurd and unachievable. But when the Prime Minister's
overzealous press secretary (Kristin Scott Thomas) latches on to it as a
"good will" story, this unlikely team will put it all on the line and
embark on an upstream journey of faith and fish to prove the impossible,
possible. (107 mins, PG-13)

bittersweet, treat."

Fri 4/27 - Thurs 5/3: *2:00, 9:00* /(*no 9:00 screening on Wed 5/2)/
A new comedy from the Duplass brothers (Cyrus, Baghead) starring Jason
Segel, Ed Helms and Susan Sarandon. On his way to the store to buy wood
glue, Jeff looks for signs from the universe to determine his path.
However, a series of comedic and unexpected events leads him to cross
paths with his family in the strangest of locations and circumstances.
Jeff just may find the meaning of his life...and if he's lucky, pick up
the wood glue as well. (83 mins, R)

*** Variety "The Duplass brothers take another step toward conventional
Hollywood storytelling without sacrificing the sincere, true-to-life
quality that got studios interested in the first place."
