THE DEATH OF STALIN
Jul 24 @ 7:30 pm

The one-liners fly as fast as political fortunes fall in this uproarious, wickedly irreverent satire from Armando Iannucci (Veep, In the Loop). Moscow, 1953: when tyrannical dictator Joseph Stalin drops dead, his parasitic cronies square off in a frantic power struggle to be the next Soviet leader. Among the contenders are the dweeby Georgy Malenkov (Jeffrey Tambor), the wily Nikita Khrushchev (Steve Buscemi), and the sadistic secret police chief Lavrentiy Beria (Simon Russell Beale). But as they bumble, brawl, and backstab their way to the top, just who is running the government? Combining palace intrigue with rapid-fire farce, this audacious comedy is a bitingly funny takedown of bureaucratic dysfunction performed to the hilt by a sparkling ensemble cast.

“The Death Of Stalin is superbly cast, and acted with icy and ruthless force by an A-list lineup. There are no weak links. Each has a plum role; each squeezes every gorgeous horrible drop.” ––– The Guardian

ON CHESIL BEACH
Aug 7 @ 7:30 pm

A KING’S FILM SOCIETY PRESENTATION

Adapted by Ian McEwan from his bestselling novel, the drama centers on a young couple of drastically different backgrounds in the summer of 1962. Following the pair through their idyllic courtship, the film explores sex and the societal pressure that can accompany physical intimacy, leading to an awkward and fateful wedding night. The film stars Saoirse Ronan, Billy Howle, Anne-Marie Duff, Adrian Scarborough, Emily Watson, and Samuel West.

From Bleecker Street Films: Ian McEwan’s Novels to Film

After writing his novel On Chesil Beach in 2007, Ian McEwan did something he rarely does—he wrote the screenplay. Even before the novel hit bookstores, film companies were interested in turning this story into a movie. Traditionally McEwan has left the job of adaptation to others, joking, “In the time it takes me to write two screenplays that do not get made, I could have written two new novels.” But the elegant way the book tells how an eventful wedding night in 1962 utterly changed the destinies of a newly married couple seem to translate perfectly into a screenplay. Director Dominic Cooke was so impressed with McEwan’s adaptation that there was very little to do before filming. “He is so specific about character and place,” Cooke explained. Saoirse Ronan, who stars alongside Billy Howle, was thrilled to reunite with McEwan after having helped bring his novel Atonement to the screen a decade before. “Ian is someone who writes women incredibly skillfully,” notes Ronan. In the last forty years, Ian McEwan has written some of Britain’s most acclaimed novels. Both he and his work have won nearly every literary award, including the Man Booker Prize.

THE LEISURE SEEKER
Aug 21 @ 7:30 pm


The film stars Academy Award-winner Helen Mirren and two-time Golden Globe-winner Donald Sutherland as a runaway couple going on an unforgettable journey in the faithful old RV they call The Leisure Seeker, traveling from Boston to The Ernest Hemingway Home in Key West. They recapture their passion for life and their love for each other on a road trip that provides revelation and surprise right up to the very end.

“This first English-language film from the Italian director Paolo Virza is an impeccably acted, teary-funny comedy about an ageing couple coming to terms with the fact that their days of living independently are numbered.”

VAN GOGH: Of Wheat Fields & Clouded Skies
Sep 22 @ 7:00 pm

Van Gogh: Of Wheat Fields and Clouded Skies Masterpieces from the Kröller-Müller Museum

A new look at Van Gogh, through the legacy of the largest private collector of artworks by the Dutch painter: Helene Kröller-Müller (1869-1939), who, in the early 20th Century, ended up buying nearly 300 of his works, paintings and drawings included.

The story unfolds of a woman who, in Van Gogh’s spiritual torment could recognize her own, showing priceless artistic treasures and the rare, naturalistic and architectural beauty of the Kröller-Müller Museum set in the vast De Hoge Weluge park, as well as visual extracts of the Milanese, Florentine, Roman and Palladian Renaissance. It tells the tormented, existential parable of a painter, seen through passages from his brother Theo’s letters, which set the pace of the exhibition, and it shows images of the places he lived and stayed in, from Paris to Provence.

The opportunity to tell the story of this collection and of the burning passion for art that led to it, is an outstanding exhibition on Van Gogh. ‘Amid wheat fields and clouded skies’ at the Basilica Palladiana in Vicenza, brings together 40 paintings and 85 drawings from the Kröller-Müller Museum in Otterlo, Holland, now home to Helene’s heritage.
This is an exhibition that will not only tell us about Van Gogh’s art and his genius, but it will also allow us to understand the importance of drawing as part of his artistic technique. His seemingly instinctive, ‘au premier coup’ canvases were the result of long, preparatory studies, not sketches but complete works of art in themselves, where the broken flow of lines that characterizes the style of his paintings, can already be found.
