(Ireland / 2014 / Directed by John Michael McDonagh)
R / 101 mins
Following the international success of The Guard, director John Michael McDonagh and a brilliant Brendan Gleeson reunite in this blackly comic drama about a good priest tormented by his community in a small and picturesque Irish town.
Gleeson is Father James who, in the film’s gripping first scene, is threatened with death during confession. A man tells of how he was sexually abused by a priest from the age of seven, and has decided that the only way to rectify matters is to kill an innocent clergyman. He calmly gives Father James a week to get his matters in order. Father James knows the man who made the threat (though he’s kept hidden from the viewer), and Calvary then takes us on a twisted journey through a motley crew of villager suspects. A fantastic supporting cast including Chris O’Dowd (The Sapphires), Kelly Reilly (Sherlock Holmes) and Aidan Gillen (Game of Thrones), people the village with a range of richly drawn characters who exasperate Father James as he prepares to face his own personal Calvary.

(USA / 2014 / Directed by Woody Allen)
PG-13 / 100 mins. 
Fresh off of an Oscar nomination for Blue Jasmine, Woody Allen returns with a sun-soaked romance set in 1920s France, about a beguiling spiritualist and the man hired to debunk her.
Against a backdrop of wealthy mansions, gorgeous Mediterranean vistas, and fashionable jazz joints, Sophie (Emma Stone) works as a medium for a rich family. When an Englishman (Colin Firth) is brought in to convince her employers of her fraudulent nature, he becomes increasingly puzzled by the accuracy of her soothsaying and impressed by her trickery. As his cynicism is challenged, he gradually falls for the young woman and a series of personal and professional complications ensue. With a stellar cast including Eileen Atkins, Marcia Gay Harden, Hamish Linklater, and Jacki Weaver, Magic in the Moonlight is a terrific ensemble comedy from one of the true masters of cinema.

Night Train

In Rhinebeck 
Aug 31
Sunday 8:30
(Poland / 1959 / Directed by Jerzy Kawalerowicz)
Unrated / 99 mins.
An intimate psychological study and a poetic tale of loneliness, Night Train brings two voyagers together accidentally in a train compartment.
The subtle game of emotions — changing from mutual aversion to closeness without hope — is played out against the background of a microcosm of the human experience. A coquette, bored with her husband, attempts to seduce every available man; a former prisoner of a concentration camp fights his insomnia; old women go on a pilgrimage; and a skirt-chaser seeks his prey. With the arrival of police searching for a murderer, everything changes. It soon turns out that this seemingly average community is able to behave in a most unforeseen manner. An artistic work of great subtlety, Night Train offers itself open to various interpretations.
