Widely disparaged by reviewers on its release (it rates just 39% on the aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes) and a box office failure, Birth is a sorely misunderstood film, and more than that, a surrealist masterpiece. Nicole Kidman plays a young Manhattan widow who is bemused, angered, appalled, and finally captivated and enraptured by the strange courtship of a ten-year-old boy (Vancouver’s Cameron Bright) who claims to be Sean, her late husband.

Copresented by the Lacan Salon and the APW Conference On Love, this screening will include remarks and discussion led by Christine Evans and Ona Nierenberg, PhD.

The late Andrzej Zulawski’s final film is an ominous and manic exploration of desire. Witold who has just failed the bar, and his companion Fuchs, who has recently quit his fashion job, are staying at a guesthouse run by the intermittently paralytic Madame Woytis. Upon discovering a sparrow hanged in the woods near the house, Witold’s reality mutates into a whirlwind of tension, histrionics, foreboding omens, and surrealistic logic as he becomes obsessed with Madame Woytis’s daughter Lena. Best Director, Locarno Film Festival 2015

In this elegant, witty courtroom drama, the outcome of the trial gradually slips into the background as Christian Vincent instead focuses on the courtship between the presiding judge (Fabrice Luchini, from Gemma Bovery and Cycling with Moliere) and one of the reserve jurists (Sidse Babett Knudsen from The Duke of Burgundy and TV’s Borgen). Witty, subtle and ultimately poignant, this is like an especially polished episode of The Good Wife, augmented with a certain savoir faire.

Movies for Mommies screenings are modified for the enjoyment of moms and their infants. Screenings take place in low light with lower volume levels.
