Weston Film Club: Secrets & Lies

January 17 | 7:00pm at Walker Farm

Winner of the Golden Palm for best picture and Best Actress at Cannes, the Golden Globe for 1997, 3 BAFTA awards, nominated for five Oscars, Secrets and Lies is the story of Hortense, a young optometrist whose adoptive parents have died. She sets out to find her birth mother and discovers she is alive, as are her birth brother and sister. Roger Ebert wrote: "Moment by moment, scene after scene, Secrets and Lies unfolds with the fascination of eavesdropping. We are waiting to see what these people will do next. caught up in the fear and the hope they will bring the whole fragile network of their lives crashing down in ruin. When they prevail - when good common sense and good hearts win over ssecrets and lies - we feel almost as relieved as if it had happened to ourselves."

Weston Film Club: Transit

February 14 | 7:00pm at Walker Farm

From the award winning German director of Barbara (Christian Petzold), comes Transit, a film that is "A brilliant allegory that imagines the world in the grip of fascism and as throngs of desperate people deek asylum - becomes a fightening all too real vision of our world." (Manohla Vargis placing Transit her NY Times top ten list for 2019)

The time is the present, unnamed and unlabeled fascist troops descend on Paris. German political refugee Georg flees to Marseille where he assumes the identity of a dead writer and obtains two transit tickets to North America. Awaiting his escape, Georg's life intertwines with a widowed refugee mother and a beautiful mysterious woman in search of her own missing husband.

" An existential thriller about loss, statelessness and historical amnesia, Transit is the latest from German director Christian Petzel, an electrifying, original film maker... By turns intimate and expansive, Transit is a thrilling, at times harrowing labrynth of a movie." (New York Times).

Weston Film Club: A Man Escaped

March 27 | 7:00pm at Walker Farm

With the simplest of concepts and sparest of technique, director Robert Bresson made one of the most suspenseful jailbreaks of all time in A Man Escaped. Based on a true story of an imprisoned French Resistence leader, this taut and methodical thriller is also a work of intense humanity and spirituality, of trust in the group and trust in one's own basic morality in a life and death situation.

"The best of all prison escape movies, it reconstructs the very notion of freedom through off screen sounds and defines salvation in terms of patient and painstakingly patience and meticulous effort." Jonathan Rosenbaum in the Chicago Reader.

"Watching a film like A Man Escaped is a lesson in the cinema. It teaches by demonstration all the sorts of things that are not necessary in a movie. By implication, it suggest most of the things we're accustomed to are superfluous."

"Without a doubt one of the greatest films ever made, a film both thrilling and meditative, that should serve as a textbook for modern filmmakers on how to create and sustain suspense."
