Palme d’Or–winning documentarian Michael Moore (Fahrenheit 9/11) turns his attention to another significant date, examining the legacy of Trump’s ascension to the US presidency on November 9, 2016.

In July 2016, Michael Moore was treated like a crackpot doomsayer for writing the essay “5 Reasons Why Trump Will Win.” His prediction was the opposite of most pollsters and pundits but it came true in the wee hours of November 9, 2016 when the electoral college votes were tallied.

Now Moore brings his sharp satire to analyze the legacy of 11/9 and to raise questions about what lies ahead. Trump is a master distractor with his incendiary tweets, staff firings, and outright lies. But within the chaos, his administration has delivered on a right-wing agenda with tax cuts for the wealthy, environmental deregulation, court appointments, and treaty withdrawals that will be felt long into the future.

2 hr 8 min
Director: Michael Moore

“If you’ve grown desensitized to how profoundly Donald Trump has changed everything, it’ll wake you right back up.”

COLETTE
Nov 20 @ 7:30 pm

Based on the life of Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette, the film follows the writer through her marriage to Henry Gauthier-Villars, who whisks her away from her quiet and humble life in the countryside to live in the bustling and lively Paris. Henry, better known as “Willy,” is a successful Parisian writer who, while relying on an army of ghostwriters to produce his work, uses his time to engage in other self-indulgent activities — including numerous affairs with other women. He soon enlists his wife as one of his ghostwriters. He initially dismisses her contributions, but soon decides to re-work and publish Colette’s writing under his own name in order to save their family from financial ruin. Throughout their tumultuous marriage, Colette remains honest, consulting with Willy about her confusion over her newly discovered attraction to other women. While she seeks permission for her explorations, Willy does not offer the same courtesy, consistently betraying Colette’s trust and continuing to exploit her talents in order to publish her wildly successful work as his own. As their marriage begins to deteriorate, Colette finds a place for herself within her writing and begins to explore her creativity through a variety of artistic avenues. Keira Knightley quietly simmers as Colette, a trailblazing figure committed to breaking through stereotypes and conventions.

THE WIFE
Dec 4 @ 7:30 pm

Jonathan Pryce, Glenn Close, and Christian Slater star in Björn Runge’s adaptation of Meg Wolitzer’s bestselling novel about Joan Castleman (Close), who begins to re-evaluate her marriage to her author husband, Joe (Pryce), on the eve of his Nobel Prize presentation, and starts to grapple with her own long-dormant literary aspirations. An incisive study of celebrity, marriage, and the creative process — as well as a showcase for the talents of acclaimed actors Close and Pryce — The Wife explodes the old notion that behind every great man stands a great woman. Joe Castleman is being given the Nobel Prize for Literature, and he and wife Joan couldn’t be happier. But from the moment the couple arrives in Stockholm, tensions rise. A nosy, insistent would-be biographer (Slater) is loitering in the hotel lobby, an attractive young photographer opens old wounds regarding past indiscretions, and Joe and Joan’s son David (Max Irons), eternally irked at living in his father’s shadow, sulks through the celebrations.

The Wife is a procession of perfectly pitched scenes from a seemingly perfect marriage. Runge calibrates each for maximum impact, focusing on unspoken agreements and long-simmering resentments. His greatest allies in the endeavour are, of course, his stars. Pryce exudes pathos as a literary icon still suffering from insecurities, while Close smoulders in an intricately textured, quietly devastating performance.

    “This is an unmissable movie for Glenn Close fans. Actually, you can’t watch it without becoming a fan — if you weren’t one already.” – Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
