Mood Indigo
Directed by Michel Gondry
Starring Romain Duris, Audrey Tautou, Gad Elmaleh
France - NR - 94 minutes
Drafthouse Films Website

Set in a charmingly surreal Paris, wealthy bachelor Colin spends his time developing his pianocktail (a cocktail-making piano) and devouring otherworldly dishes prepared by his trusty chef Nicolas. When Colin learns that his best friend Chick, a fellow acolyte of the philosopher Jean-Sol Partre, has a new American girlfriend, our lonely hero attends a friend's party in hopes of falling in love himself. He soon meets Chloe and, before they know it, they're dancing to Duke Ellington and plunging headfirst into a romance. Their whirlwind courtship is tested when an unusual illness plagues Chloe; a flower begins to grow in her lungs. To save her, Colin discovers the only cure is to surround Chloe with a never-ending supply of fresh flowers.

Pump
Directed by Joshua Tickell, Rebecca Harrell Tickell
Starring Elon Musk, Luiz 'Lula' da Silva, Ashley Elisabeth Cox
USA - Rated PG - minutes
Submarine Deluxe Website

PUMP is an inspiring, eye-opening documentary that tells the story of America's addiction to oil, from its corporate conspiracy beginnings to its current monopoly today, and explains clearly and simply how we can end it - and finally win choice at the pump. Today oil is our only option of transportation fuel at the pump. Our exclusive use of it has drained our wallets, increased air pollution and sent our sons and daughters to war in faraway lands. PUMP shows us how through the use of a variety of replacement fuels, we will be able to fill up our cars - cheaper, cleaner and American made - and in the process, create more jobs for a stronger, healthier economy. The film features notable experts such as John Hofmeister, former President of Shell Oil US; Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla Motors; Peter Goldmark, former president of the Rockefeller Foundation; and other noteworthy figures who share their passionate views and knowledge. Right now we have the ability to change our country's future, but we never knew it. Aren't we tired of being taken for a ride? PUMP is the movie that could change that.

"A car's high beams trace slow-motion lightning across the highway. An auto worker in suspenders strides the factory floor. These seductive images of the American automotive industry act as dreamy parentheses to Josh and Rebecca Tickell's compelling and cogent documentary." - Village Voice




November 5-9 at 5:30pm
White Bird in a Blizzard
Directed by Gregg Araki
Starring Shailene Woodley, Eva Green, Christopher Meloni
USA - Rated R - 91 minutes
Magnolia Pictures Website

Kat Connors (Shailene Woodley) is 17 years old when her perfect homemaker mother, Eve (Eva Green), a beautiful, enigmatic, and haunted woman, disappears - just as Kat is discovering and relishing her newfound sexuality. Having lived for so long in a stifled, emotionally repressed household, she barely registers her mother's absence and certainly doesn't blame her doormat of a father, Brock (Christopher Meloni), for the loss. In fact, it's almost a relief. But as time passes, Kat begins to come to grips with how deeply Eve's disappearance has affected her. Returning home on a break from college, she finds herself confronted with the truth about her mother's departure, and her own denial about the events surrounding it...

"Intriguing and haunting.” – Anthony Kaufman, Screen International

"Sexy, hilarious, brutal, and haunting all at once.” - Indiewire

"Heady, intoxicating... "Eva Green melts the screen.” - The Playlist

"Eva Green goes deliciously unhinged.” – Peter Debruge, Variety

Last Days in Vietnam
A documentary film directed Rory Kennedy
USA - NR - 98 minutes
American Experience Films / PBS Website

During the chaotic final days of the Vietnam War, the North Vietnamese Army closes in on Saigon as South Vietnamese resistance crumbles. The United States has only a skeleton crew of diplomats and military operatives still in the country. As Communist victory becomes inevitable and the U.S. readies to withdraw, some Americans begin to consider the certain imprisonment and possible death of their South Vietnamese allies, co-workers, and friends. Meanwhile, the prospect of an official evacuation of South Vietnamese becomes terminally delayed by Congressional gridlock and the inexplicably optimistic U.S. Ambassador. With the clock ticking and the city under fire, a number of heroic Americans take matters into their own hands, engaging in unsanctioned and often makeshift operations in a desperate effort to save as many South Vietnamese lives as possible.
