This Week at the JCC

We have a couple of interesting new films showing this week at the Jean Cocteau. They don't have the benefit of huge Hollywood advertising campaigns behind them, so let me give a small tease for them here.

WHITE LIES


THE WAVE


We have a few more showings of MAD MAX:FURY ROAD and BRIDGE OF SPIES on the schedule this week as well. Two amazing films.

See you at the movies!

The story behind White Lies is fascinating, too. I can't remember it all off the top of my head, but as I recall it started its life as a script for a project that was canned, after which Ihimaera (also the author of Whale Rider, btw) wrote it as a story which was adapted to film by Dana Rotberg, a Mexican director, after which Ihimaera expanded the story to a novella that was released as an ebook. Or something like that. It's covered in the story notes in Asks the Posts of the House. Anyway. A powerful story and a powerful and painful film.

I don't remember, but did your theater do a screening of this brilliant film? Have you seen it? It's worth watching just to see the Oscar Isaac dance scene...
