THE SQUID AND THE WHALE
MARCH 9 • 6:30
Based on the true childhood experiences of Noah Baumbach and his brother, The Squid and the Whale tells the touching story of two young boys dealing with their parents’ divorce in Brooklyn in the 1980s.
KICKING AND SCREAMING
MARCH 16 • 6:30
Baumbach’s first film is a movie about a group of smart, articulate college students who have just graduated, and are hanging around the campus before the icy blast of real life begins. They have few plans or prospects, but they trust they’re clever enough to land on their feet. – AT RUSH
MARCH 23 • 6:30
Greta Gerwig shines in this breezy but poignant comedy, inspired by the French New Wave (not to mention Woody Allen) set in contemporary New York. Frances is an apprentice dancer who, at 27, has yet to negotiate her post-college identity crisis and transition into full-blown adulthood. – AT RUSH
WHILE WE’RE YOUNG
MARCH 30 • 7:00
Starring Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts, WHIEL WE’RE YOUNG is an openly funny cross-generational comedy of manners about aging, ambition and success, as well as a moving portrait of a marriage tested by the invading forces of youth. No film has better captured the weird, upended logic of urban sophisticates: the older ones embracing their iPads and Netflix, the younger ones craving vinyl records and vintage VHS tapes.
WHILE WE’RE YOUNG opens in San Francisco on April 3.
We are not accepting RSVPs for WHILE WE’RE YOUNG film right now, but…
