  • LOVE CRIME directed by Alain Corneau

  • Sep 1, 2011 to Sep 30, 2011
  • Location: Lincoln Plaza and Landmark Sunshine Theatres
  • Description: LOVE CRIME is a remorseless tale of extreme office politics, played brilliantly by Kristin Scott Thomas and Ludivine Sagnier. Isabelle (Sagnier) is the young ingénue assistant, while Christine (Scott Thomas) is the older woman, a senior executive in a multinational company doing deals around the world. At first they are friendly. Christine, the able executive, is happy to pass the grunt work along to the up-and-coming Isabelle as she learns the ropes. But when Christine starts to take credit for Isabelle's ideas, and a fellow worker bee begins to fuel Isabelle's growing doubts about Christine's duplicitous "all-for-one" attitude, the ground is prepared for all out war. LOVE CRIME is a complex, mischievous, surprising and ultimately devastating look on the corporate world, a last magical effort from one of the world's most loved directors.

  • Location: Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center
  • Description: Inspired by true events, I’M GLAD MY MOTHER IS ALIVE was written and directed by father and son filmmaking team Claude (“A Secret”) and Nathan Miller. Given up for adoption as a toddler, troubled teenager Thomas (César nominee for Best Male Newcomer Vincent Rottiers in a powerful performance) becomes obsessed with tracking down his birth mother. After years of searching, Thomas finds her (a riveting Sophie Cattani) single, with a small child, living in a nearby suburb, and introduces himself. Traumatized by years of emptiness and longing for his mother, he starts an ambiguous relationship with her - part courtship, part obsession, which slowly drives him to an act of madness.
