Rose Theatre

5 New Movies

Greetings Movie Lovers: Love is in the air, or at least seriously represented on screen at the Rose and Starlight beginning this Friday (6/10). Director Whit Stillman's adaptation of Jane Austen's LOVE & FRIENDSHIP is the first art house hit of the year and is receiving glowing reviews equal to Austen's SENSE AND SENSIBILITY ('95). This sparkling comedy stars Kate Beckinsale, Chloë Sevigny, and Stephen Fry, in a story about Lady Susan, a dubious heroine who does not confine herself to honest flirtation, but aspires to the more delicious gratification of making a whole family miserable. LOVE & FRIENDSHIP opens in the Rose auditorium. Opening in the Rosebud is a story of first love that is not to be missed. Like his earlier films, ONCE and BEGIN AGAIN, SING STREET is inspired by writer-director John Carney's life and love for music. It's a feel-good musical with huge a heart and irresistible optimism, featuring the music of Motorhead, Duran Duran, Adam Levine, Daryl Hall & John Oates, The Cure and The Jam. I guarantee that you'll be smiling when the houselights come up.

And you'll find love of a very different sort in THE LOBSTER, Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos's dystopian satire about single people who are taken to The Hotel where they are obliged to find a romantic partner in forty-five days, or risk being transformed into an animal of their choice. Yes, you read correctly. Peter Travers, writing in Rolling Stone said, "Lanthimos's terrifically twisted satire takes us places most films fear to tread.  The symbolism is humanized by a top-flight cast - Colin Ferrell and Rachel Weisz - and an ending that manages to be brutal and rapturously romantic at the same time."

The brilliant German-Jewish philosopher Hannah Arendt is the subject of VITA ACTIVA: THE SPIRIT OF HANNAH ARENDT, Ada Ushpiz's stirring profile of this remarkable woman.  Arendt caused an uproar in the 1960s by coining the subversive concept of the "Banality of Evil," when referring to the trial of Adolph Eichmann, which she covered for The New Yorker magazine.  This thought-provoking and spirited documentary offers an intimate portrait of the whole of Arendt's life.

TIME TO CHOOSE, our special event next Wednesday, June 15th explores the comprehensive scope of the climate change crisis and examines the power of solutions already available. Please join us, as people all over the country participate in this one-time screening. A moderated discussion will follow the movie. $8 Members / $10 Non-Members.

COOL NEWS: We're now serving delicious Elevated Ice Cream and Italian Ice in compostable cups with tiny compostable spoons. Yum.
