THE SENSE OF AN ENDING

Based on the bestselling, Man Booker Prize-winning novel by Julian Barnes and directed by Ritesh Batra (The Lunchbox), The Sense of an Ending is an introspective, cross-generational story that considers how we edit our memories and construct our identities, much like a piece of storytelling. Tony Webster, divorced and retired, leads a reclusive and relatively quiet life. One day, he learns that the mother of his university girlfriend, Veronica, left in her will a diary kept by his best friend who dated Veronica after she and Tony parted ways. Tony’s quest to recover the diary, now in Veronica’s possession, forces him to revisit his flawed recollections of his friends and of his younger self. As he digs deeper into his past, it all starts to come back; the first love, the broken heart, the deceit, the regrets, the guilt… Can Tony bear to face the truth and take responsibility for the devastating consequences of actions he took so long ago?

Mystery/Drama/110 min.
Rated PG

Director: Ritesh Batra
Cast: Jim Broadbent, Charlotte Rampling, Emily Mortimer and Michelle Dockery

“The Sense of an Ending looks terrific, suffused as it is with British manners and everything-in-its-placeness. It’s a cozy movie with a decidedly un-cozy message — about the perils of resuscitating our pasts, and the even bigger risk of leaving them be.“

– The Washington Post

PARIS CAN WAIT

Eleanor Coppola makes her directorial and screening debut at the age of 81 with Paris Can Wait. Anne (Diane Lane) and her high-powered film producer Michael (Alec Baldwin) are in France and plan to spend some much needed alone time in Paris. In typical fashion, Michael suddenly gets called away to Budapest on business. Enter Jacques (Arnaud Viard), Michael’s associate, a light-hearted Frenchman, who offers to drive Anne directly to Paris to await her husband’s arrival. What begins as an innocent favor quickly turns into an unexpectedly wandering road trip filled with mouth-watering cuisine, breathtaking scenery, intimate conversation and looming romance. Paris Can Wait proves as much a feast for the eyes and stomach as it does the heart. Coppola takes the audience on an elegant journey, both through the French countryside and through the mind of a woman surprised to find long-buried memories resurface and unforeseen attractions arise.

Drama/Comedy/Romance  92 min.
Rated: PG

Director: Eleanor Coppola
Cast: Diane Lane, Alec Baldwin, Arnaud Viard

“If you’re longing for a delicious romantic romp to take your mind off the world going to hell in hand basket, Paris Can Wait is it

TOMMY’S HONOUR – Golf Tournie Special Film
Sep 5 @ 7:30 pm

King’s Film Society Special Presentation

A powerful historic drama about the world’s oldest golf tournament

Tommy’s Honour

Tuesday, Sept. 5, 7:30 pm

Set against the early days of the sport and stunning landscape of Scotland, Tommy’s Honour is based on the intimate and powerfully moving true story of the relationship between “Old” Tom Morris and “Young” Tommy Morris, the dynamic father-son team who ushered in the modern game of golf.

As their fame grew, Tom and Tommy, Scotland’s Golf Royalty, were touched by drama and personal tragedy. At first matching his father’s success, Tommy’s talent and fame grew to outshine his father’s accomplishments as founder of the Open Championship in 1860, his stellar playing record, and his reputation as the local caddie master, greenskeeper and club & ball maker.  In contrast to his public persona, Tommy’s inner turmoil ultimately led him to rebel against the aristocracy led by The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews, and the parents who shunned his passionate relationship with his girlfriend-then-wife Meg Drinnen.

Historic Drama/102 min.

Rated PG

Director: Jason Connery

Cast: Peter Mullan, Jack Lowden, Ophelia Lovibond, Sam Neill

“Tommy’s Honour is a beautiful tribute to the game. I felt like we were dropped out of a time machine and given the chance ‘to feel’ what golf was like over a century and an half ago. It’s a film that takes you into the soul of the game. Remarkably well done and enjoyable on every level!”

— Bill Macatee, CBS Sports

“An engrossing and accessible celebration of the game’s modern origins, enhanced by striking locations and a standout cast, led by Scottish actors Peter Mullan and Jack Lowden.”

–The Hollywood Reporter
