Once, 'Teenagers' didn't exist. But then, they were invented. With a changing tide the world over and a struggle erupting between adults and youth, the concept of a new generation took shape. Whether in America, England, or Germany, whether party-crazed Flappers or hip Swing Kids, zealous Nazi Youth or frenzied Sub-Debs, it didn't matter - they were all a new idea of youth. They were all 'Teenagers.' This film is a living collage of rare archival material, filmed portraits, and voices (provided by Jena Malone, Ben Whishaw, Julia Hummer, Jessie Usher) lifted from early 20th century diary entries.
"This rich historical documentary chronicles the emergence of the teenager as a distinct social and cultural group."-Hollywood Reporter.
"4/5 Stars. The film makes its point ingeniously."-Time Out New York.
"Director Matt Wolf uses startling archival footage to capture the rise of pre-Elvis youth culture as the defining surge of the 20th century."-Entertainment Weekly.
78 min., Unrated.
Nymphomaniac: Volume 2 - Last Shows!
The continuation of Joe's (Charlotte Gainsbourg) sexually dictated life delves into the darker aspects of her adulthood, obsessions and what led to her being in Seligman's (Stellan Skarsgård) care.
"Newcomer Stacy Martin and old-hand Charlotte Gainsbourg anchor these two films with performances you can't take your eyes off. They're the calm eyes of Von Trier's storm."-Time Out.
"Misery loves company, and no one loves both more than this director."-Boston Globe.
"Nymphomaniac is a jigsaw opus, an extended and exquisitely crafted riff."-Village Voice.
123 min., Unrated.
The Grand Budapest Hotel
This film recounts the adventures of Gustave H (Ralph Fiennes), a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa (Tony Revolori), the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. The story involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting and the battle for an enormous family fortune - all against the back-drop of a suddenly and dramatically changing Continent.
"3.5/4 Stars. I would call 'The Grand Budapest Hotel' major whimsy. It's a confection with bite, featuring an ensemble led by the invaluable Ralph Fiennes, here allowed to exercise his farceur's wiles."-Chicago Tribune.
"3.5/4 Stars. It's a filigreed toy box of a movie, so delicious-looking you may want to lick the screen. It is also, in the Anderson manner, shot through with humor, heartbreak and a bruised romantic's view of the past."-Peter Travers, Rolling Stone Magazine.
"3.5/4 Stars. It's a mature, intricately layered visual delight."-USA Today.
100 min., Rated R.
