THE MENU movie poster button to buy tickets
THE MENU - Rated R (1h 47m)
Horror/Comedy

button to watch trailer
A couple travels to a coastal island to eat at an exclusive restaurant where the chef has prepared a lavish menu, with some shocking surprises. Starring Anya Taylor-Joy, Ralph Fiennes, and Nicholas Hoult. Directed by Mark Mylod.

Review by our own Caitlin Stow:
What could have been a simple, silly thriller about the ridiculousness of gourmet food, actually achieves something far greater. A story about class which refuses to pull its punches, boldly and humorously advocating for eating the rich. All of them. No exceptions. (Not literally though, it's not THAT kind of food movie.) A witty and pacey screenplay accompanies sleek camera work, sharp performances, and a modern, biting atmosphere, all culminating in a raucously fun time with just enough to say.


Face masks are optional.

AFTERSUN movie poster button to buy tickets
AFTERSUN - Rated R (1h 36m)
Drama

button to watch trailer
Twenty years after their last holiday at a fading vacation resort, Sophie reflects on the rare time spent with her loving and idealistic father Calum. At 11-years-old, as the world of adolescence creeps into Sophie's view, Calum struggles under the weight of life outside of fatherhood. Sophie's recollections become a powerful and heartrending portrait of their relationship, as she tries to reconcile the father she knew with the man she didn't. Starring Paul Mescal, Frankie Corio, and Celia Rowlson Hall. Directed by Charlotte Wells.

Review by our own Caitlin Stow:
Director Charlotte Wells describes the process of making Aftersun as an exercise in discovering the film as it was being made, oscillating between moments of open potential and moments of inevitability. I found my experience of watching Aftersun to be much the same. As each scene spread out in front of me like warm honey, I could see every other father-daughter film inside its structure, and yet could also see endless emotional possibilities for these rich, nuanced characters. A textbook example of restraint and trust in one's audience, eighty minutes of the ninety minute runtime are spent slowly building a sunkissed collage of yearning, love, and contemplation, and in those last ten minutes these fragments crash together into one of the most satisfying and devastating conclusions I've ever experienced.

Face masks are optional.

TRIANGLE OF SADNESS movie poster button to buy tickets TRIANGLE OF SADNESS - Rated R (2h 27m)
Drama/Comedy

button to watch trailer
Models Carl and Yaya are invited for a luxury cruise with a rogues’ gallery of super-rich passengers. At first, all appears Instagrammable, but the cruise ends catastrophically and the group find themselves marooned on a desert island. Winner of the Palme d'Or. Directed by Ruben Östlund.

Review by our own Caitlin Stow:
This has garnered quite the reputation as a provocative "eat the rich" movie, and while this is technically correct, it's an unfair simplification of the difficult and nuanced themes director Ruben Östlund is exploring while depicting class, hierarchy, and our current descent into global catastrophe. What makes this film especially brilliant is its ability to explore all those themes to the highest possible level, while also making me laugh so hard I cried. A whip-smart, no-holds-barred satire with impeccable performances, stellar pacing, and an explosive second act which will go down in film history; I never knew what was around the corner and I relished every single soggy second of discovery.

All of these things—except toys—are available at the Vina Moses Center on Garfield Ave for people without children, too.
