“Everybody is going to die. The Times is becoming the last place in American journalism where acknowledgements of worthy lives and newsworthy lives can be acknowledged.” So says Bruce Weber (Van Syckle, Variety), one of the "obituarists" featured in the insightful and surprisingly uplifting documentary, Obit. Directed by Vanessa Gould, Obit explores the team behind the New York Times' obituary department, where the art of honoring death is far more centered on the celebration of life than perhaps we all may have thought. Obit provides a glimpse into a profession punctuated by death, but with humor and compassion helps illuminate that--even in death--it is the happiest memories of life that prevail.

Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer

Fri. 6/2 - Wed. 6/7

(R) 1 Hr. 58 Min. (Digital) In English (Drama)

Persistent wheeler-dealer Norman (Richard Gere) falls in with an Israeli politician (Lior Ashkenazi) on the rise. When the politician is elected prime minister, Norman rises in esteem with the New York Jewish community, even though his social connections might only be a sham. Norman's elegantly told story is brought brilliantly to life by a quietly powerful performance from Gere.
