Les Cowboys (France, 2015)
Apr 5, 2019 at 7:00 PM

Room C105

A teenaged girl disappears; a Father vows to find her when the law cannot; his quest leads him deeply into a foreign culture; his wife and son become casualties of his obsession. Thomas Bidegain, writer of our previous films A Prophet, Rust and Bone, and Dheepan, takes elements from classic Westerns (The Searchers in particular) and updates them for the 9/11 era. Now, France is the frontier, torn between American imperialism and Islamic migration through Europe.

“Powerfully original and unexpectedly classical at the same time,”

“[The film is] tough to watch, yet continues to haunt in the weeks that follow.”


- Variety





The Square (Sweden, 2017)
May 3, 2019 at 7:00 PM

Room C105

Ruben Ostlund, writer-director of our previous film Force Majeure, once again satirizes the fragile male ego, but with a more ambitious scope: the world of modern art. On the verge of announcing a new installation meant to foster urban empathy, a director becomes over-invested in personally catching the thieves who stole his wallet. A disastrous marketing campaign launches in his absence, while other exhibits fail in spectacular fashion.
Palme d’Or winner at the Cannes Film Festival.

“Withering insights … impeccable farce … can execute a gag with steel-trap precision. The museum itself is an absurdist goldmine, facilitating jokes worthy of Jacques Tati.”

- The AV Club
