SESSION THEME:  IT'S ALL IN THE FAMILY

Leo Tolstoy wrote that "Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way." Put the story of a family - immediate or otherwise - on film, and you can be sure there will be conflicts, rivalries, redemption, love, and fireworks. Come join us to discover four very different films that explore the meaning of family, and what makes each one unique yet in many ways similar, to our own experience.

 

NOVEMBER 16     THE LAST SUPPER (Germany, 2018)

January, 1933. On the day Hitler assumes power, an affluent German-Jewish family comes together for dinner. Most of them-like many Germans do at the time-do not take the Nazis seriously. When the older children announce their plans, the family realizes they may be on the brink of being torn apart in this deeply personal and intimate film.

 

NOVEMBER 30    CHERRY BLOSSOMS (Germany/Japan, 2008)

In this touching and bittersweet story about love, family, dreams fulfilled in a unique way, and crossing physical and emotional borders, a retired couple embark on a journey that takes them from a small town in Germany to Berlin and Tokyo.

 

DECEMBER 14     SUMMER HOURS (France, 2008)

Universally acclaimed by critics, the multiple award-winning Summer Hours is a contemporary story of three siblings, who must decide what to do with the country estate and objects they've inherited from their mother. From this simple story comes an exquisitely nuanced drama about the coming to terms with globalized modern living. Naturalistic and unsentimental, Summer Hours is that rare film that pays respect to family by treating it with honesty. 

 

NOVEMBER 9    SHOPLIFTERS (Japan, 2018)

On the margins of Toyko, a dysfunctional band of outsiders are united by fierce loyalty, a penchant for petty theft and playful grifting. When they bring a young girl into their fold, their below-the-radar existence is put to the test, as is their radical belief of what defines a family.
