On November 20 at the Royal and Christmas Day at the Playhouse and Town Center we'll be opening one of the best films we've screened all year, the Turkish/French production MUSTANG. It begins in a village in Northern Turkey in early summer. Five free-spirited teenaged sisters splash about on the beach with their male classmates. Though their games are innocent fun, a neighbor passes by and reports to the girls’ family what she considers illicit behavior. The family overreacts, removing all “instruments of corruption,” like cell phones and computers, essentially imprisoning the girls, subjecting them to endless lessons in housework in preparat [...]

WHAT OUR FATHERS DID and WELCOME TO LEITH: Two superb docs about Nazis, long ago and far away, but also here and now.
Next month we'll be opening two acclaimed documentaries about that notorious and virulent ideology, Nazism, one that deals with its incarnation in Germany during World War II and another about its presence here and now. A poignant, thought-provoking account of friendship and the toll of inherited guilt, WHAT OUR FATHERS DID: A NAZI LEGACY explores the relationship between two men, each of whom are the children of very high-ranking Nazi officials and possess starkly contrasting attitudes toward their fathers. Eminent human rights lawyer Philippe Sands investigates the complicated connection between the two, and even delves into the story of [...]
"Riotously funny" sleeper MEET THE PATELS is "a lively and engaging universal story made with an unmistakable sense of fun."
Every year there are at least one or two films that come out of left field and delight audiences enough to generate that most ineffable and valuable kind of publicity, word of mouth publicity. Such is the case with the new comedic documentary MEET THE PATELS, which has shown great legs and made its way from a humble start in just one of our theaters to six of them: by this Friday we'll be showing it at the NoHo, Royal, Claremont, Town Center and Playhouse. PATELS is a laugh-out-loud real life romantic comedy about Ravi Patel, an almost-30-year-old Indian-American who enters a love triangle between the woman of his dreams...and his parents. Th [...]
