Things to ComeUptown Theatre
Young French director Mia Hansen-Løve directs Isabelle Huppert (who experiences a career resurgence between this and Elle) as a philosophy professor who separates from her husband late in life. It won Best Director at the Berlin International Festival. Huppert easily inhabits the role of an enormously intelligent woman without making her too sympathetic.

Miss Sloane | Lagoon Cinema
Jessica Chastain gives yet another intense performance as “the most sought after and formidable lobbyist in D.C.” But she breaks ranks and finds herself up against an even more powerful enemy: the gun lobby. John Madden of Shakespeare in Love directed it.

Granito | St. Anthony Main
Subtitled How to Nail a Dictator, this dark documentary interviews five people who survived the 1982 genocide campaign in Guatemala where 200,000 people were murdered by the military government and another 45,000 went missing. Like the recent documentary The Act of Killing, it uses the incomplete memories of its subjects to create reenactments of disturbing intensity. The Film Society is showing this movie only once, at 4:30 on Saturday.

From Here to Eternity | AMC Rosedale 14
To commemorate the anniversary of Pearl Harbor, TCM is broadcasting one of the quintessential films that dramatized the attack. It gave Burt Lancaster and Deborah Kerr perhaps their most iconic roles and ushered Frank Sinatra to movie stardom at a time when his music career was tanking. The film won eight Academy Awards, including one for Sinatra.

La Bête Humaine | Trylon Microcinema
The Trylon’s Jean Renoir revue continues with another film from the 1930s, based on the novel by Emile Zola. The book has been adapted since, by Fritz Lang among others, but this one stands out as containing many elements of the film noir genre long before American films of the kind were being made.
