When American military analyst, Daniel Ellsberg, realizes to his disgust the depths of the US government’s deceptions about teh futility of the Vietnam War, he takes action by copying top-secret documents that would become the Pentagon Papers. Later, Washing Post owner, Kay Graham, is still adjusting to taking over her late husband’s business when editor Ben Bradlee discovers the New York Times has scooped them with an explosive expose on those papers. Determined to compete, Post reporters find Ellsberg himself and a complete copy of those papers. However, the Post’s plans to publish their findings are put in jeopardy with a Federal restraining order that could get them all indicted for Contempt. Now, Kay Graham must decide whether to back down for the safety of her paper or publish and fight for the Freedom of the Press. In doing so, Graham and her staff join a fight that would have America’s democratic ideals in the balance. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (

Based on the unbelievable, but true events, I, TONYA is a darkly comedic tale of American figure skater, Tonya Harding, and one of the most sensational scandals in sports history. Though Harding was the first American woman to complete the triple axel in competition, her legacy was forever defined by her association with an infamous, ill-conceived, and even more poorly executed attack on fellow Olympic competitor Nancy Kerrigan. Featuring an iconic turn by Margot Robbie as the fiery Harding, a mustachioed Sebastian Stan as her impetuous ex-husband Jeff Gillooly, a tour-de-force performance from Allison Janney as her acid-tongued mother, LaVona Golden, and an original screenplay by Steven Rogers, Craig Gillespie’s I, TONYA is an absurd, irreverent, and piercing portrayal of Harding’s life and career in all of its unchecked — and checkered — glory.


A Fantastic Woman

Oscar Winner! (Foreign Language Film)
Not Rated
Runtime: 1 Hour, 44 Mins
[In Spanish with English subtitles]
Sponsored by: The Departments of Spanish & Portuguese; Latin-American, Latino & Caribbean Studies; Women’s, Gender & Sexuality Studies; and LGBTQ Services at Dickinson College

Directed by Sebastián Lelio, this Chilean drama tells the story of Marina (Daniela Vega), a transgender waitress and singer, and Orlando, an older man, who are in love and planning for the future.  After Orlando suddenly falls ill and dies, Marina is forced to confront his family and society, and to fight again to show them who she is: complex, strong, forthright, fantastic.

A Fantastic Woman was just awarded the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film, and has won such other awards as the Goya for the Best Iberoamerican Film and the Indie Spirit Award for Best International Film.

A.O. Scott of the New York Times writes, “It would be absurd to minimize the political impulse and import of A Fantastic Woman, or to universalize its specific, precisely observed depiction of injustice.  Marina is, to some degree, a representative woman, whose experiences reveal a deeply held prejudice hardly limited to Chile.  But Mr. Lelio and Ms. Vega are less invested in her symbolic status than in her living presence.  She has a charisma that defies pity and a sense of poise that can be both intimidating and heartbreaking.”



Oscar Nominee! (Foreign Language Film)
Not Rated
Runtime: 2 Hours, 7 Mins
[In Russian with English subtitles]
Sponsored by: The Department of Russian at Dickinson College
7:30 p.m. showtimes:
4/13 (Fri.), 4/14 (Sat.), 4/18 (Wed.), 4/19 (Thurs.)

Zhenya and Boris are going through a vicious divorce marked by resentment, frustration and recriminations.  Already embarking on new lives, each with a new partner, they are impatient to start again, to turn the page – even if it means threatening to abandon their 12-year-old son Alyosha.  Until, after witnessing one of their fights, Alyosha disappears.

Directed by Andrei Zvyagintsev (who brought us Leviathan in 2014), Loveless was Russia’s entry into the Oscar sweepstakes for Best Foreign Language Film.  Among the many awards it has won, Loveless took home the Jury Prize at Cannes last year, and a Golden Eagle (Russia’s equivalent of a Golden Globe) for Zvyagintsev’s direction.

Peter Bradshaw in The Guardian says that “Loveless is a stark, mysterious and terrifying story of spiritual catastrophe: a drama with the ostensible form of a procedural crime thriller.  It has a hypnotic intensity and unbearable ambiguity which is maintained until the very end.”



Not Rated
Runtime: 1 Hour, 48 Mins
[In Hebrew with English subtitles]
Sponsored by: The Departments of Middle East Studies; Film & Media Studies; and Judaic Studies at Dickinson College
7:30 p.m. showtimes:
4/20 (Fri.), 4/25 (Wed.), 4/26 (Thurs.)
2:00 p.m. showtime:
4/22 (Sun.)

Michael and Dafna experience gut-wrenching grief when army officials show up at their home to announce the death of their soldier son Jonathan.  Michael becomes increasingly frustrated by overzealous mourning relatives and well-meaning army bureaucrats.  While his sedated wife rests, Michael spirals into a whirlwind of anger only to experience one of life’s unfathomable twists – a twist that can only be rivaled by the surreal military experiences of his son.

Director Samuel Maoz’s last feature, Lebanon (2009), was a briliant antiwar statement filmed entirely inside an Israeli tank.  Foxtrot again looks at the state of mind of the state of Israel, and offers a new perspective on the toll of constant war.  The film won the Grand Jury Prize at the Venice Film Festival as well as an Ophir (the Israeli Oscar) for Best Film, but has been denounced by Israel’s Minister of Culture as being “anti-Israel.”

Kenneth Turan of the Los Angeles Times remarks that as “An intricate, dazzling cinematic dance, Foxtrot goes both deeper in and further out than standard-issue cinema.  It’s profound and moving and wild and crazy at the same time, simultane-ously telling a specific story and offering an emotional snapshot of a country whose very soul seems to be at risk.”
