In Lady Bird, Greta Gerwig reveals herself to be a bold new cinematic voice with her directorial debut, excavating both the humor and pathos in the turbulent bond between a mother and her teenage daughter. Christine "Lady Bird" McPherson fights against but is exactly like her wildly loving, deeply opinionated and strong-willed mom, a nurse working tirelessly to keep her family afloat after Lady Bird's father loses his job. Set in Sacramento, California in 2002, amidst a rapidly shifting American economic landscape, Lady Bird is an affecting look at the relationships that shape us, the beliefs that define us, and the unmatched beauty of a place called home.

Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story

Saturday, February 3, 7:30 pm

Location:
Catamount Arts Center
115 Eastern Ave.
St. Johnsbury, VT

Tickets: $12 each (by a ticket for both Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival and save)

Documentary. Directed by Alexandra Dean. 90 minutes. USA.

MNFF Audience Award and Clio Visualizing History Prize for the Advancement of Women in Film.

What do the most ravishingly beautiful actress of the 1930s and 40s — and the brainy inventor whose concepts led to cell phone and bluetooth technology have in common? They are both Hedy Lamarr, the glamorous Hollywood star who was widely heralded as “the most beautiful woman in the world” — and was the inspiration for Snow White and Cat Woman. But Lamarr also had a secret identity—as a technological trailblazer who perfected a radio system to throw Nazi torpedoes off course during WWII.

This riveting film weaves interviews and clips with never-before-heard audio tapes of Hedy speaking on the record about her incredible life. We get an up-close look at her beginnings as an Austrian Jewish emigre whose scandalous nude scene in the 1933 film, Ecstasy, caused such an enormous international uproar that even the Pope was moved to denounce it. After capturing Lamarr's glittering Hollywood life and her ground-breaking but completely uncredited inventions, director Dean follows the actress/inventor’s retreat, during her later years, when she became a recluse, impoverished and almost forgotten.

BOMBSHELL: THE HEDY LAMARR STORY brings to light the story of an extraordinary, unusual and accomplished woman, spurned as too beautiful to be smart, but still a role model to this day.

"Very enjoyable—one of the best movies of 2017. Ms. Dean relates Lamarr’s ventures, those onscreen and off, with savvy and narrative snap, fluidly marshaling a mix of original interviews and archival material that includes film clips, home movies and other footage.” — Manohla Dargis, New York Times.

“Yet what what makes "Bombshell" intriguing is not just Lamarr's gift for invention, it's also what a fiery individualist she was, someone who had no regrets about her eventful life ("You learn from everything"), not even its racy, tabloid elements.” — Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

An American In Paris

Tuesday, February 6, 1:30 pm

Admission: Free

Gene Kelly does his patented Pal Joey bit as Jerry Mulligan, an opportunistic American painter living in Paris' "starving artists" colony. He is discovered by wealthy Milo Roberts (Nina Foch), who becomes Jerry's patroness in more ways than one. Meanwhile, Jerry plays hookey on this setup by romancing waif-like Lise Bouvier (Leslie Caron) -- who, unbeknownst to him, is the object of the affections of his close friend Henri (Georges Guetary), a popular nightclub performer. (The film was supposed to make Guetary into "the New Chevalier." It didn't.) The thinnish plot is held together by the superlative production numbers and by the recycling of several vintage George Gershwin tunes, including "I Got Rhythm," "'S Wonderful," and "Our Love Is Here to Stay." Highlights include Guetary's rendition of "Stairway to Paradise"; Oscar Levant's fantasy of conducting and performing Gershwin's "Concerto in F" (Levant also appears as every member of the orchestra); and the closing 17-minute "American in Paris" ballet, in which Kelly and Caron dance before lavish backgrounds based on the works of famed French artists.

Driving Miss Daisy

Thursday, February 8, 7:00 pm

Admission: Free

Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Alfred Uhry, Driving Miss Daisy affectionately covers the 25-year relationship between a wealthy, strong-willed Southern matron (Jessica Tandy) and her equally indomitable Black chauffeur, Hoke (Morgan Freeman). Both employer and employee are outsiders, Hoke because of the color of his skin, Miss Daisy because she is Jewish in a WASP-dominated society. At the same time, Hoke cannot fathom Miss Daisy's cloistered inability to grasp the social changes that are sweeping the South in the 1960s. Nor can Miss Daisy understand why Hoke's "people" are so indignant. It is only when Hoke is retired and Miss Daisy is confined to a home for the elderly that the two fully realize that they've been friends and kindred spirits all along. The supporting cast includes Esther Rolle as Miss Daisy's housekeeper and Dan Aykroyd as Miss Daisy's son, Boolie (reportedly, playwright Uhry based the character upon himself). Driving Miss Daisy won Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Actress (Jessica Tandy), Best Screenplay (Uhry), and Best Makeup (Manlio Rochetti).
