Wakefield
Wakefield

Fri. 6/9 - Fri. 6/15

(R) 1 Hr. 46 Min. (Digital) In English (Drama)

What would your life look like without you in it? Outwardly, Howard Wakefield (Bryan Cranston) is the picture of success. He has a loving wife (Jennifer Garner) and two daughters, a prestigious job as a Manhattan lawyer, and a comfortable home in the suburbs. Inwardly, though, he’s suffocating. One day, something snaps and Howard goes into hiding in his garage attic. Leaving his family to wonder what happened to him, he observes them from the attic window—an outsider spying in on his own life. As the days of self-imposed isolation stretches longer than he planned, Howard begins to wonder: is it even possible to go back to the way things were? Driven by a tour de force, darkly comic performance from Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston, Wakefield is a provocative look at what it means to walk away from it all.
“Beautifully cinematic.  A moody meditation on modern living and surveillance. Cranston is simply remarkable.” ~ Associated Press
“A tour de force of touching gravity and aching humanism. It’s astounding to watch, and an award-caliber performance from Bryan Cranston.” ~ Rolling Stone

Hermia & Helena

Fri. 6/9 - Thurs. 6/15

(NR) 1 Hr. 27 Min. (Digital) In English and Spanish with subtitles (Comedy, Drama)

Camila (Agustina Muñoz, The Princess of France), a young Argentine theater director, travels from Buenos Aires to New York for an artist residency to work on a new Spanish translation of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Upon her arrival, she quickly realizes that her work isn't compensating for the loss of her friends and the lover she left behind. When she begins to receive a series of mysterious postcards from Danièle (Mati Diop, Claire Denis’s 35 Shots of Rum), a former participant in the same residency, Camila second-guesses her artistic endeavors and begins to seek answers about her past. Hermia & Helena mingles actors from Matías Piñeiro’s Buenos Aires repertory with stalwarts of New York’s independent film scene (Keith Poulson, Dustin Guy Defa, Dan Sallitt). It is a film of dead ends and new beginnings, navigating amorous detours across hemispheres and languages, in which the words of Shakespeare clash with the entanglements of modern, digital life.
