The Duke

October 7–9

(U.K., 2020) Directed by Roger Mitchell, 95 min., rated R. Jim Broadbent and Helen Mirren star in this comedy-drama based on the true story of the 1961 theft of Francisco de Goya’s portrait of the Duke of Wellington from the National Gallery of London.

Hit the Road

October 14–16

(Iran, 2021) Directed by Panah Panahi, 93 min., not rated. Cannes nominee Hit the Road follows in the tradition of Iranian road-trip movies with a few unexpected twists. A family of four drive across the Iranian countryside, bonding over memories and wrestle with the uncertainty of what lies ahead.


October 21–23

(Columbia, 2021) Directed by Apichatpong Weerasethakul, 136 min., rated PG. Described as haunting, transcendent and unforgettable, Memoria is the latest film by Palm d’Or recipient Apichatpong Weerasethakul. The sense of displacement in the film, enhanced by “the sound” create a sensory experience that is amplified by Academy award winner Tilda Swinton’s performance. This award-winning film is to be experienced rather than simply viewed.

Never Gonna Snow Again

October 28–30

(Poland, 2020) Directed by Malgorzata Szumowska & Michal Englert, 116 min., not rated. In this cryptic satire of Poland’s upper-class Zhenia, a “gifted” Ukrainian masseur, makes house calls to a gated community, providing his discontented clients with physiotherapy and hypnotherapy. With the ability to snap his clients in and out of unconscious dream states, Zhenia holds more power over his clients than they realize.
