Beatriz at Dinner

Fri. 8/11 - Thurs. 8/24

(R) 1 Hr. 23 Min. (Digital) In English (Comedy, Drama)

Beatriz (Salma Hayek), an immigrant from a poor town in Mexico, has drawn on her innate kindness to build a career as a health practitioner in Los Angeles. Doug Strutt (John Lithgow) is a cutthroat, self-satisfied billionaire. When these two opposites meet at a dinner party, their worlds collide and neither will ever be the same. Beatriz at Dinner offers timely social commentary enlivened by powerful, layered performances from Hayek and Lithgow.

The Little Hours

Opens Fri. Aug. 11

(R) 1 Hr. 30 Min. (Digital) In English (Comedy)

Medieval nuns Alessandra (Alison Brie), Fernanda (Aubrey Plaza), and Ginevra (Kate Micucci) lead a simple life in their convent. Their days are spent chafing at monastic routine, spying on one another, and berating the estate's day laborer. After a particularly vicious insult session drives the peasant away, Father Tommasso (John C. Reilly) brings on new hired hand Massetto (Dave Franco), a virile young servant forced into hiding by his angry lord. Introduced to the sisters as a deaf-mute to discourage temptation, Massetto struggles to maintain his cover as the repressed nunnery erupts in a hilarious whirlwind of horniness. The Little Hours gets plenty of goofy mileage out of its gifted ensemble, anchoring its ribald laughs in a period comedy with some surprisingly timely subtext.

I Dream In Another Language

Fri. 8/11 - Thurs. 8/17

(NR) 1 Hr. 41 Min. (Digital) In Spanish with English subtitles (Art House & International, Drama)

A young linguist travels to the jungle of Mexico to research and save a mysterious indigenous language. A language, as he discovers, at the point of disappearing since the last two speakers had a fight 50 years ago and refuse to speak a word with each other. Trying to bring the two old friends back together, he discovers that hidden in the past, in the heart of the jungle, lies a secret concealed by the language that makes it difficult to believe that the heart of Zikril will beat once again.
