King’s Film Society Presentation

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
Aug 8 @ 7:30 pm

King’s Film Society Presentation

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
– Rolling Stone

LISA BROKOP: Legendary Ladies of Country
Aug 13 @ 7:30 pm

As a follow-up to her hit show Lisa Brokop: The Patsy Cline Project, Lisa has developed a new concert experience that country music fans will NOT want to miss!

Through hit songs and heartfelt stories, Lisa Brokop: Legendary Ladies of Country will celebrate several of the female pioneers in country music who inspired and influenced Lisa’s own career. Featuring hits from Tammy Wynette, Loretta Lynn, Barbara Mandrell, Emmylou Harris and more. Lisa Brokop’s own favorites from her award-winning albums such as Better Off Broken, Wildflower, and Take That will also be included. This musical tour tips its hat to the talented women of country.

 

It’s not often – in fact, some might say very rare – for an artist to have an enduring musical career.  In a day and age when most artists barely flicker for a moment before fading out of the spotlight, Lisa Brokop is set to celebrate 20 remarkable years of singing, songwriting and performing.

What’s the secret to her success?  “I love what I do,” says Brokop.  “Every note I sing, whether in the studio or from the stage, is true.  It hasn’t always been an easy road. There have been many curves, bumps and detours.  But really, it is the love of the music that motivates each step I take in the business. It keeps me moving forward.  And I think fans feel and appreciate that love.”

Lisa’s love affair with performing began in suburban Vancouver, British Columbia. As a baby, it was clear to her parents that she was special – She was singing before she could talk! By the age of 7, she was on stage with her musical mother and brother, performing everything from polkas to Kenny Rogers’ classics. 
By age 12, she was sitting in with other Vancouver bands, and went professional at age 15 when she joined a touring band. A year later she began a solo career and released “Daddy Sing To Me”, the first of a string of successful singles from her independent debut album My Love.

At the age of 19, Lisa landed the lead female role in the feature film Harmony Cats. The movie, in which Lisa plays a country singer who leaves home in search of a big break in Nashville, proved to be prophetic. Shortly after filming wrapped, and on the strength of her very first Nashville showcase, Lisa was signed to Capitol Records. Over the next three years, she released two critically acclaimed albums, the Canadian-certified Gold record Every Little Girls Dream and the self-titled Lisa Brokop, which garnered hits such as “Give Me a Ring Sometime,” “Take That,” “Before He Kissed Me,” and “She Can’t Save Him.” In 1995, the prestigious Academy of Country Music recognized Lisa with an award nomination for Top New Female Vocalist.

In 1998, Lisa signed with Sony Nashville/Columbia Records and released When You Get To Be You featuring the hit singles “What’s Not To Love,” “How Do I Let Go” and the top-10 smash hit “Better Off Broken.”

Now comfortably established in her adopted home of Nashville, Tennessee, she took some time away from the rigors of the road and discovered a hidden wellspring of songwriting talent, which gave her renewed self-respect, strength and determination.  The result was Undeniable, a Canadian independent album that saw Lisa recognized with a series of Canadian Country Music Awards, including two nods for Independent Song of the Year for the hits “Something Undeniable” and “I’d Like to See You Try,” and three consecutive trophy wins for Independent Female Artist of the Year.

It was during this time that Lisa really began to get noticed for her songwriting abilities. All ten songs on Undeniable were co-written by Lisa and before long other stars were recording tracks she penned, including Reba McEntire, Terri Clark and Pam Tillis.

In 2004, Lisa signed with Curb/Asylum Records and released a breathtaking collection of songs entitled Hey, Do You Know Me. From the poignant title track to classic ballads like “Just a Girl” and “Try Me Again Around Midnight,” Lisa crafted an album that she was truly proud of – a perfect combination of compelling music and gripping lyrics.

Brokop’s seventh album, Beautiful Tragedy was released in August 2008 on the independent Ellbea Records label and featured the top-20 hit “Break It”. Eleven of the album’s twelve tracks were co-written by Brokop and all tracks were produced by Brokop and her husband Paul Jefferson.  Lisa and Paul welcomed baby Ivy into their lives in August 2009.  The couple released a duo project The Jeffersons in 2011.

In 2013, Lisa returned to commercial country radio and had success with songs “Let It Burn” and “Love Me If  You Can” both of which were produced by fellow Canadian superstar Carolyn Dawn Johnson.

Ready to begin a yet another new chapter, Brokop is in the process of putting together the new musical venture, “Lisa Brokop: The Patsy Cline Project”. Lisa will be paying homage to one of country music’s greatest ladies with some of Cline’s classic hits like “Sweet Dreams” and “Walkin After Midnight” as well as some of her own material specifically written for the project.
“I’ll be coming full circle with this project”, Brokop says. ” When I first started singing, I would sing some of Patsy’s song because I didn’t have my own. They are still among some of my favorites today and I am so excited to have the opportunity to honor this amazing lady and the incredible music she gave us!”
