A Memoir of War

Sunday, April 29 at 7:00 PM • UA Tara Cinemas

Marguerite Duras’s autobiographical memoir receives a haunting and hypnotic adaptation in director Emmanuel Finkiel’s A Memoir of War.

Mélanie Thierry gives an intensely powerful performance as the seminal writer, a member of the Resistance living in Nazi-occupied Paris. Desperate for news of her husband, who has been arrested by the Germans, she enters into a high-risk game of psychological cat and mouse with a Nazi collaborator (Benoît Magimel). But as the agonized wait for the man she loves wears on, Marguerite must begin the process of confronting the unimaginable.

Through impressionistic images and voiceover passages of Duras’s semi-autobiographical texts, A Memoir of War evokes the inner world of one of the 20th century’s most revolutionary writers.

RBG

Thursday, May 10 at 7:30 PM • UA Tara Cinemas

A favorite at this year's Sundance Film Festival, RBG celebrates the breathtaking legacy and personal life of a feminist hero, quiet warrior and one of the most influential jurists in American history.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg became a force for social change and champion of equal rights during her rise to the U.S. Supreme Court. This intimate, moving portrait charts the spry octogenarian's extraordinary journey, from her humble beginnings growing up poor in Brooklyn, to the romance of her enduring marriage, the landmark cases that defined her career, and her unlikely status as a pop culture superhero.

This energetic, fist-pumping, crowd-pleasing documentary is a loving tribute to a brilliant legal mind who continues to fight the good fight, while inspiring those who wish to follow in her footsteps.
