    Ballybeg, County Donegal, Ireland, 1936. The five Mundy sisters welcome their mentally and physically frail elder brother home from a life as a missionary in Africa – a small act of family charity that signals a sea change in life for the five women. Love blooms briefly for some sisters, and opportunity looms for others, but as summer fades to fall, dreams fade to reality – and the sisters gather to celebrate the harvest festival of Lughnasa together one last time. Elegant, rueful, heartwarming and honest, Dancing at Lughnasa is Brian Friel's masterpiece – a lyrical tribute to the spirit and valor of the past.

  • Bright Lights: Mood Indigo sponsored by the French Cultural Center

    11/20/14
    7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    Based on the beloved novel Mood Indigo by Boris Vian.

     

    Eminently inventive auteur Michel Gondry finds inspiration from french novelist Boris Vian's cult novel to provide the foundation for this visionary and romantic love story starring Audrey Tautou (Amélie, Coco Before Chanel) and Romain Duris (The Beat My Heart Skipped).

    Set in a charmingly surreal Paris, Duris plays wealthy bachelor Colin, whose hobbies include developing his pianocktail (a cocktail-making piano) and devouring otherworldly dishes prepared by his trusty chef Nicolas (Omar Sy, The Untouchables, X-Men: Days Of The Future Past). When Colin learns that his best friend Chick (Gad Elmaleh, The Valet), a fellow acolyte of the philosopher Jean-Sol Partre, has a new American girlfriend, our lonely hero attends a friend's party in hopes of falling in love himself. He soon meets Chloé (Tautou) and, before they know it, they're dancing to Duke Ellington and plunging headfirst into a romance that Gondry rapturously depicts as only he can. Their whirlwind courtship is tested when an unusual illness plagues Chloe; a flower begins to grow in her lungs. To save her, Colin discovers the only cure is to surround Chloe with a never-ending supply of fresh flowers.

    Mood Indigo was Nominated for three 2014 César Awards: Étienne Charry (Best Original Music), Florence Fontaine (Best Costume) and Stéphane Rozenbaum (Best Production Design) and also stars Charlotte Le Bon (Yves Saint Laurent, To Reach the Clouds) and Aïssa Maïga.
