Yaron, an elite special operations squad leader, is the spiritual leader and alpha male among his peers, a small, highly trained team that is part of the Israeli Defense Ministry's Anti-Terrorism unit. These men work, play, laugh, and cry together. They are true patriots. Yaron's wife is expecting their first child, and the failing health of a team member weighs on his soul, and the price that must be paid as a result of this. As the story shifts, the antagonists are introduced: a small group of politically extreme individuals with their own vision of how Israeli society should be. They use terrorism to make their misguided vision a reality. Yaron faces the prospect of the very evil he works to eliminate taking on the form of his beloved Israeli countrymen. For the sake of his team, his expectant wife, and himself, he must hold himself together and perform his duties.

In the spring of 2005, acclaimed environmental photographer James Balog headed to the Arctic on a tricky assignment for National Geographic: to capture images to help tell the story of the Earthís changing climate. Even with a scientific upbringing, Balog had been a skeptic about climate change. But that first trip north opened his eyes to the biggest story in human history and sparked a challenge within him that would put his career and his very well-being at risk.  Chasing Ice is the story of one manís mission to change the tide of history by gathering undeniable evidence of our changing planet.

Chasing Ice has won numerous awards at film festivals around the world.  The film's protagonist and recipient of the Dickinson College 2014 Sam Rose and Julie Walters Prize for Global Environmental Activism, James Balog, will be on the Dickinson campus for a residency on September 23-24, and will give a public lecture on Tuesday, September 23.  Details are available on the Dickinson College website.  Please note that the Saturday, September 20 showing of Chasing Ice is free to the entire Carlisle community, and will be followed by a discussion at the Theatre.  All other showings are sponsored by Dickinson College; ticket price for students with ID is $3.00.

Michael Winterbottom's largely improvised 2010 film, The Trip, took comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon-or semificitonlized versions thereof-on a restaurant tour around northern England.  In this witty and incisive follow-up, Winterbottom retunites the pair for a new culinary road trip, retracing the steps of the Romantic poets' grand tour of Italy and indulging in some sparkling banter and impersonation-offs.  Rewetting our palates from the earlier film, the characters enjoy mouthwatering meals in gorgeous settinsg from Liguaria to Capri while riffing on subjects as varied as Batman's vocal register, the artistic merits of "Jagged Little Pill," and of course, the virtue of sequels.  Winterbottom trains his camera to capture the idyllic Italian landscape and the gastronomic treasures being prepared and consumed while keeping the film centered on the crackling chemistry between the two leads.  The Trip to Italy effortlessly melds the brilliant comic interplay between Coogan and Brydon into quieter moments of self-reflection, letting audiences into their insightful ruminations on the nuances of friendship and the juggling of family and career.  The result is a biting portrait of modern-day masculinity.
