PEARL movie poster button to buy tickets
PEARL
Rated R (1h 42m)
Horror

button to watch trailer
Trapped on her family's isolated farm, Pearl must tend to her ailing father under the bitter and overbearing watch of her devout mother. Hoping for a more glamorous life, Pearl's ambitions, temptations and repressions all collide to horrific effect. Starring Mia Goth. Directed by Ti West.

Review by Caitlin Stow:
Heralded by Martin Scorsese as evoking a "pure, undiluted love for cinema" and featuring an Oscar-worthy turn by star Mia Goth, PEARL breaks from the horror genre's love for doom and gloom, instead dazzling with a retro, Golden-Age-of-Hollywood color palette and imaginative scope to match. Goth's performance is deceptively tricky, as we are forced to empathize with the burgeoning psychopath even as she descends deeper into madness. As beautiful as it is disturbing; as bright as it is bloody; PEARL is a truly one-of-a-kind experience made for the big screen.

Face masks are optional.

THREE THOUSAND YEARS OF LONGING movie poster button to buy tickets
THREE THOUSAND YEARS OF LONGING
Rated R (1h 48m)
Fantasy/Romance

button to watch trailer
While attending a conference in Istanbul, Dr. Alithea Binnie (Tilda Swinton) encounters a djinn (Idris Elba) who offers her three wishes. As a scholar of smythology, she knows the cautionary tales of wishes gone wrong. The djinn pleads his case, telling her fantastical stories of his past. Eventually, she makes a wish that surprises them both. Directed by George Miller.

Review by Caitlin Stow:
During the Great Depression audiences rejected hard-hitting dramas in favor of pure escapism, and in response Hollywood perfected its screwball comedies, movie musicals, and fantasy films. Ninety years later, the strains of our world are again turning our desires away from the bleak cynicism of 2010s' ripped-from-the-headlines melodramas and we’re seeking relief: a 2020s trend I’ve been calling the Cinema of Unbridled Joy. Three Thousand Years of Longing is the epitome of unbridled joy. This is not to say it is without weight or sorrow; in its fantastical imagination it feels as real, if not more real and relatable, than any “true story” I’ve seen this year. Held up by a smart, thoughtful screenplay and a creative, painterly use of effects and design, Swinton and Elba dance through myth and history in a quirky, funny, heart-wrenching romance which reminds us of the importance of storytelling, and how wishing makes us human.

LOVE SONG movie poster button to buy tickets
A LOVE SONG
Rated PG (1h 21m)
Drama

button to watch trailer
Faye (Dale Dickey) is a lone traveler who bides her time fishing, birding and stargazing at a rural Colorado campground as she awaits the arrival of Lito (Wes Studi), a figure from her past who is navigating his own tentative and nomadic journey across the rugged West. Directed by Max Walker-Silverman.

Review by Caitlin Stow
I found this to be a much needed reminder of what makes a great film. It doesn’t have to save the world or tackle every problem all at once; it can be small, and gentle; quiet, and focused; and as long as it does whatever it’s doing exceptionally well, it’s a great film. A poem on grief, loneliness, love, and beauty, with stunning landscapes and heart-wrenching performances, this funny, soft, raindrop of a film celebrates humanity and joy in the little things.
