Schedule of Events

2:30 pm–4:15 pm: A Man in a Hurry

Directed by Hervé Mimran (France, 2018, 100 min.). Digital. French with English subtitles.

In this bright comedy based on a memoir by the former head of Peugeot, Alain (Fabrice Luchini, of Courted and Cycling with Molière) is a high-profile businessman who has neglected his personal life in favor of corporate success. When he suffers a major stroke and wakes up in a hospital room, Alain must rebuild his life and his relationships with the help of a speech therapist, Jeanne (Leïla Bekhti). This may sound like the makings of a serious drama, but director Hervé Mimran tackles the subject with a feather-light touch, deftly weaving in moments of hilarity and razor-sharp wit.

Cost: Member $10.00, Nonmember $13.00

Location: Harry and Mildred Remis Auditorium (Auditorium 161)

5:00 pm–6:20 pm: A Faithful Man

Directed by Louis Garrel (France, 2018, 75 min.). Digital. French with English subtitles.

Talented heartthrob Louis Garrel (director of Two Friends and star of The Dreamers and Godard Mon Amour) directs and acts in this romantic comedy about a diffident young man caught between two women (Lily-Rose Depp and Laetitia Casta). A beguiling bedroom farce and a slippery inquiry into truth, subjectivity, and the elusive nature of romantic attraction.

Cost: Member $10.00, Nonmember $13.00

Location: Harry and Mildred Remis Auditorium (Auditorium 161)

7:00 pm–10:35 pm: Coincoin and the Extra-Humans

Directed by Bruno Dumont (France, 2018, 208 min.). Digital. French with English subtitles.

In Bruno Dumont's follow-up to his absurdist caper Li'l Quinquin, a pugnacious farm boy (the titular Coincoin, played by Alane Delhaye) discovers a gelatinous blue puddle in a field. Two eccentric police officers, Captain Van der Weyden (Bernard Pruvost) and Officer Carpentier (Philippe Jore), are assigned to the case. As they dig deeper into the origin of the puddle, they begin to notice that the residents of their seaside town are acting strangely. Soon the officers are joined by hazmat-suited government officials, who theorize that the puddle is from outer space–and aliens have invaded the idyllic seaside town.

Cost: Member $10.00, Nonmember $13.00
