  • Mr. Holmes

    6:30pm, 8:45pm

    Mr. Holmes
    • Starring: Ian McKellen, Hattie Morahan, Hiroyuki Sanada, Laura Linney
    • Director: Bill Condon
    • Genre(s): Drama, Mystery, Crime
    • Rating: PG
    • Running Time: 104 min.
    "Don’t think you can take another Hollywood version of Sherlock Holmes? Snap out of it. Apologies to Robert Downey Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch, but what Ian McKellen does with Arthur Conan Doyle’s fictional detective in Mr. Holmes is nothing short of magnificent. "
    - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
    "McKellen is brilliant throughout, his piercing blue eyes revealing the gallantry of youth and the sadness of a life’s worth of memories slipping further away. His understated and charming approach to the role makes it all the more potent and engaging. "
    - Miriam Di Nunzio, Chicago Sun-Times
    "Mr. Holmes is not so much the story of Holmes’ last case, as the story of his last choice: whether to go gentle, or whether to rage against the dying of the light. "
    - Jessica Kiang, The Playlist
    "In an age of flashier adaptations of Conan Doyle’s classic literary character, Condon’s film might be appreciated as a refreshingly old-fashioned outing, even with its own variations on the character in mind. "
    - Michael Pattison, indieWIRE,
    "The film represents an agreeably old-fashioned alternative to all the modernized reinventions of Arthur Conan Doyle’s venerable detective in recent years. "
    - David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter
    "There will always be plenty of fictional geniuses solving impossible crimes, but Holmes, it turns out, it where the heart is. "
    - Marc Mohan, Portland Oregonian
    "Maneuvering shrewdly within the boundaries of the traditional canon and aided by the impeccable performance of Ian McKellen, Bill Condon directs an elegant puzzler that presents the sage of Baker Street dealing with the one thing he’s never had to contend with before: his own emotions. "
    - Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
  • Amy

    6:00pm

    Amy
    • Starring: Amy Winehouse, Mark Ronson, Mos Def
    • Director: Asif Kapadia
    • Genre(s): Biography, Music, Documentary
    • Rating: NR
    • Running Time: 128 min.
    "It’s a gripping and thoroughly effective, perhaps even brilliant piece of biographical documentary filmmaking. "
    - Jessica Kiang, The Playlist
    "Even if the last third of Amy is painful to watch, Kapadia takes care not to lose sight of the human being behind the mythology. "
    - Stephanie Zacharek, Village Voice
    "Anyone with a beating heart will be forgiven for allowing it to break during this unflinching and thoughtful account of the life and death of the soul singer Amy Winehouse. "
    - Dave Calhoun, Time Out London
    "Kapadia’s film is many things: a Sherlockian reconstruction of Winehouse’s arcing path across the skies of superstardom, a commemoration of her colossal talent, and a moving tribute to a brilliant, witty, vivacious young woman gone far too soon. But above all, it’s a perceptive examination of the singer’s need for love – from her friends, family, colleagues, husband and public – and the ways in which that need went unmet, or was exploited, at the times it ached in her the most. "
    - Robbie Collin, The Telegraph
    "It is an overwhelming story, and despite everyone knowing the ending, it is as gripping as a thriller: Kapadia has fashioned and shaped it with masterly flair. "
    - The Guardian, Peter Bradshaw
  • Testament of Youth

    8:30pm

    Testament of Youth
    • Starring:Dominic West , Kit Harington, Hayley Atwell, Emily Watson, Miranda Richardson
    • Director: James Kent
    • Genre(s): Biography, Drama, History, War
    • Rating: PG-13
    • Running Time: 129 min.
    "Unapologetically emotional and impeccably made in the classic manner, it tells the kind of potent, many-sided story whose unforeseen complexities can come only courtesy of a life that lived them all. "
    - Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
    "Testament of Youth, James Kent’s stately screen adaptation of the British author Vera Brittain’s 1933 World War I memoir, evokes the march of history with a balance and restraint exhibited by few movies with such grand ambitions. "
    - Stephen Holden, New York Times
    "Striking an elegantly sustained balance between intimacy and historical scope, director James Kent’s WWI-set epic Testament of Youth encompasses nearly all of the virtues of classical British period drama and nearly none of the vices. "
    - Leslie Felperin, The Hollywood Reporter
    "Kent, who gathers a cast of extremely bright young things, creates a drama that glides with sorrowful grace, pitching at a respectful and tear-inducing tone. "
    - Joe Walsh, CineVue
    "There are familiar moments in Vera Brittain’s stirring story, though the Kent’s craft and Vikander’s exquisite talent will ensure that the author’s memories live in the minds of a fresh generation… "
    - Will Lawrence, Empire
    "An intimate epic, Testament of Youth has great historical sweep yet remains focused on the human vicissitudes experienced by Vera and her circle. "
    - Godfrey Cheshire, RogerEbert.com

The End of the Tour

starts August 21

The End of the Tour tells the story of the five-day interview between Rolling Stone reporter (and novelist) David Lipsky (Jesse Eisenberg) and acclaimed novelist David Foster Wallace (Jason Segel), which took place right after the 1996 publication of Wallace’s groundbreaking epic novel, Infinite Jest. As the days go on, a tenuous yet intense relationship seems to develop between journalist and subject. The two men bob and weave around each other, sharing laughs and also possibly revealing hidden frailties – but it’s never clear how truthful they are being with each other. Ironically, the interview was never published, and five days of audio tapes were packed away in Lipsky’s closet. The two men did not meet again. The film is based on Lipsky’s critically acclaimed memoir about this unforgettable encounter, written following Wallace’s 2008 suicide. [A24]

SUMMARY: In 1975, director Steven Spielberg brought Peter Benchley’s best-selling novel to the screen with stunning power and unbearable suspense.

starts September 11

The Pearse-Connolly Hall was a place where young people could come to learn, to argue, to dream, but above all, to dance and have fun. As the hall grew in popularity its socialist and free-spirited reputation brought it to the attention of the church and politicians who forced Jimmy to flee and the hall to close. A decade later, at the height of the Depression, Jimmy returns to Co. Leitrim from the US to look after his mother and vows to live the quiet life. The hall stands abandoned and empty, and despite the pleas of the local youngsters, remains shut. However as Jimmy reintegrates into the community and sees the poverty, and growing cultural oppression, the leader and activist within him is stirred. He makes the decision to reopen the hall in the face of what they may bring. [Sony Pictures Classics]
