Maybe there are some people you are meant to love, and some you are meant to marry—this idea, and the French “cinq à sept” affair (liaisons scheduled during that hazy time between leaving work and arriving home) are explored in this gloriously romantic, Audrey Hepburn-esque love story. After Bérénice Marlohe (“Skyfall”) and aspiring writer Anton Yelchin (“Star Trek”) fall in love at first sight, it takes time for him to accept the open relationship she has with her husband, but soon he’s attending the married couple’s dinner parties with the husband’s mistress in attendance, too. His parents (Glenn Close and Frank Langella) are memorably slower to accept the concept, and eventually, he has to decide if the 5 to 7 window is enough. A funny and earnestly sentimental crowd pleaser, “5 to 7” has the power to change the way we think about relationships.

In the not-so-distant future, failed efforts to halt global warming have left the Earth frozen in a second ice age. Thanks to the vision of a benevolent billionaire, the last surviving members of the human race are confined to a state-of-the-art train that acts as a sort of Noah’s Ark, kept on a perpetually speeding journey around the globe. The train’s first class passengers enjoy all the luxuries of a lavish life; for the lower-class workers trapped in the rear of the train, things aren’t quite so rosy. Tired of being confined to the bottom caste, Curtis (Chris Evans) rallies his ragtag comrades to rebel against the ruling class, which is led by an evil prime minister tasked with maintaining the status quo (Tilda Swinton, in a scene-stealing role). One of the best sci-fi films in years, the first English-language film from Korean director Bong Joon-ho (“The Host,” TCFF ‘07) is a thrilling, action-packed dystopian vision.

Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon
Milliken at the Dennos MuseumSat, Aug 2, 2014 3:00 PM
Sponsored by: Mary & Stephen Tuttle
Mike Myers’ directorial debut is a fascinating portrait of one of the most well-known managers in Hollywood, yet a man few outside show business know- the legendary Shep Gordon. He’s managed great bands, produced movies, and even invented the “celebrity chef.” Myers’ documentary is a fascinating look at both the wheeling and dealing of the entertainment industry and the concept of what constitutes a friend or mentor in show business. You’ll especially like the part covering his time in Detroit, including the story of how Detroit made Alice Cooper famous. Told by his friends Michael Douglas, Sylvester Stallone, Willie Nelson, Anne Murray, Emeril Lagasse, and Steven Tyler, Gordon’s storied career is by turns funny, revealing, shocking, and, when covering his recent years in Hawaii, moving and profound.
