    THURSDAY, DECEMBER 08, 2016 @ 7:15 PM

    Directed by Paolo VIRZÌ; Italy/France, 2016, color, 118 min. NOT RATED.

    Beatrice is a strong-willed though undeniably delusional mental patient at a facility in Tuscany. Villa Biondi used to belong to Beatrice's aristocratic family, but now it's a psychiatric hospital for women. Beatrice tells herself that she's just there for a rest and treats the staff and fellow patients as if they are servants. When busybody Beatrice takes an interest in troubled young newcomer Donatella (Micaela Rammazzoti), who has had her child taken away, Beatrice decides the two need to escape the villa to right these wrongs. Valeria Bruni Tedeschi gives a powerhouse performance as Beatrice in Paolo Virzì's (HUMAN CAPITAL) winning, wacky comedy about female friendship.

    FRIDAY, DECEMBER 02, 2016 @ 2:45 PM

    WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 07, 2016 @ 7:15 PM

    Directed by Gianfranco ROSI;  Italy/France, 2016, color, 108 min.

    Documentarian Gianfranco ROSI (SACRO GRA) won the Golden Bear at the 2016 Berlin Film Festival for this poetic, atmospheric exploration of the ISLAND OF LAMPEDUSA, SICILY home to a small population of fishing families, an overworked coast guard station and thousands of newly arrived immigrants from Africa and the Middle East who survive the perilous crossing of the Mediterranean Sea. Rosi spent a year among the island's families, recording their reactions to the international crisis on their doorstep. He followed the Italian Coast Guard on several rescue missions, capturing powerful images of the deadly consequences of the migrants' desperate situation.

    PERICLE (2015) > [PERICLE IL NERO]

    TUESDAY, DECEMBER 13, 2016 @ 9:15 PM

    FRIDAY, DECEMBER 16, 2016 @ 9:20 PM

    Directed by Stefano MORDINI; Italy/Belgium/France, 2015, color, 104 min.

    PERICLE (Riccardo SCAMARCIO) has served his low-level Belgian mob boss Don Luigi (Gigio Morra) faithfully for years, beginning in his youth as a luckless orphan in the Belgian Neapolitan community. A sometime performer in pornographic films, Pericle's specialty is not assassination, but degradation: if Don Luigi believes a business associate is screwing him over, he sends Pericle to bluntly return that particular favor. When Pericle causes the accidental death of a member of a rival clan, he flees to France where, ironically, he discovers a truer sense of his own identity, with the help of waitress Anastasia (Marina FOÏS). Official Selection, 2016 Cannes Film Festival.

    SWEET DREAMS (2016) > [FAI BEI SOGNI]

    SUNDAY, DECEMBER 11, 2016 @ 4:20 PM

    MONDAY, DECEMBER 12, 2016 @ 2:45 PM

    Directed by Marco BELLOCCHIO; Italy, 2016, color, 134 min.

    Journalist Massimo (Valerio MASTANDREA) writes a high-profile advice column, having paid his dues covering professional sports and the war in Bosnia. Ironically, this perennial moper would seem a good candidate for professional help himself, having never gotten over the loss of his beloved mother at a young age, as seen in a series of vivid flashbacks of dreamlike intensity. Bérénice Bejo and Emmanuelle Devos highlight the exquisite supporting cast in the latest film from maestro Marco Bellocchio (GOOD MORNING, NIGHT; VINCERE). Official Selection, 2016 Cannes, Karlovy Vary, Busan, Chicago and Toronto film festivals.
