From a working-class kid busting out his best street-corner Michael Jackson moves to an almost-two-decade run as Lead Principal for London’s Royal Ballet, legendary dancer and choreographer Carlos Acosta has never shied from turning his often troubled life into the kind of transcendent art that would catapult him to stardom—and he plays himself as an adult in this biopic full of stunning dance sequences…

Piazzolla, The Years of the Shark

Friday, May 31, 2019 9:00PM

Born with a malformed right foot to a newly immigrated and deeply impoverished Italian couple, young Astor Piazzolla did not have a beginning that would portend greatness. Yet growing up in Mar del Plata with parents who fanatically believed in their only child’s brilliance, they would soon place a 22-pound bandoneon in the boy’s arms, beginning a life’s journey that would take the young musician from…

Law professor Jacques Viguier (Laurent Lucas, Raw) is on trial for his wife’s murder. It’s been nine years since her disappearance and, though public opinion isn’t on his side, he is acquitted due to lack of evidence. But when the prosecution appeals and declares that another trial will commence, it seems like the entire legal system is out to get him. That is, not if Nora (Marina…

Sune vs. Sune

Saturday, June 1, 2019 1:00PM

Fourth grade is not starting well for Sune Andersson. He arrives late on the first day (because their family car is ancient, because of Dad’s bottom-of-the-ladder job with a Swedish tax company) to find another boy named Sune—and now he has to be known as Sune Two. The injustice! Worse, the new kid is American, talented, popular, and catching the eye of Sune’s friend…

Official Secrets

Saturday, June 1, 2019 6:00PM

In the UK, the Official Secrets Act is the one that governs the protection of, and thus criminalizes the leakage of, national security information, and this film recounts the real-life story of one whistleblower who ran afoul of it. In 2003, as the U.S. is trying to drum up support for the Iraq War and getting Tony Blair’s Britain involved, Katharine Gun (Keira Knightley), an intelligence-agency…

Metal Heart

Saturday, June 1, 2019 8:30PM

Despite being twins, there’s nothing identical between Emma and Chantal, or so they think. Brooding Emma dreams of forming a goth-metal band with her best mate, Gary, before they leave for college in the fall. Sunny-blonde Chantal knows exactly where her life is headed, with plans to turn her lifestyle blog into a lucrative business while regularly indulging in the finer pleasures with her lunkheaded boyfriend, Alan…

Le Chocolat de H

Saturday, June 1, 2019 3:30PM

When you think of artisanal chocolate-making, you might not think of Japan, but Hironobu Tsujiguchi could be the greatest living exponent of the art. And he does consider it an art—as much a vehicle for personal expression as a poem or a song, as Takashi Watanabe’s doc demonstrates. (The film takes its title from the name of Tsujiguchi’s shop in Tokyo’s Ginza district.) We follow…

The Days to Come

Sunday, June 2, 2019 6:00PM

Though they’ve been together only a year, journalist Vir and upstart attorney Lluís (real-life couple Maria Rodriguez Soto and David Verdaguer) have the kind of relationship that thrives on blunt honesty and emotional forthrightness in all matters. After finding out they’re unexpectedly pregnant, the couple approaches the issue with the same sense of openness and candor, opting not to become parents for the time being. But…


Sunday, June 2, 2019 8:30PM

With his tender, socially conscious film Distinction, director Jevons Au follows three characters and illuminates an unhealthy educational system that provides little sympathy for students with mental and physical disabilities: Ms. Tsu (Jo Koo), a music teacher at a school for students with disabilities, is assigned the task of supervising an extracurricular musical production; Zoey (Jennifer Ku) is an underachiever at a high-achieving school who volunteers to help with…

Wine Calling

Sunday, June 2, 2019 3:30PM

For the French, winemaking is an obsessive and unpredictable love affair. After harvesting fresh grapes from the vine, squeezing the juice by foot or machine, then fermenting it in vats, each irreplicable bottle tells a unique story. Fueled by a punk-rock soundtrack, Wine Calling takes us through the terroirs of southern France near the border of the Iberian peninsula, where a countercultural wine movement is underway. As viticulturist of…

The Footballest

Sunday, June 2, 2019 1:00PM

Sweet and scrawny Pakete just can’t catch a break. The 11-year-old Soto Alto Soccer Club player has just become the all-time penalty kick loser, playing so badly that videos of his many, many blunders have made him a YouTube sensation and have threatened to have his team knocked down to a lower division—and possibly having it replaced by a choir! With only three games left…
