  • Tomboy

    1/26/13
    1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents Tomboy. A family moves into a new neighborhood on the outskirts of Paris. One of the daughters, 10-year-old Laure, goes to play with the other kids and is immediately mistaken for a boy. Rather than correcting them, she decides to present herself as the male Mikael. With her short hair and plain exterior, the community immediately accepts that Laure is a boy, even prompting one of the young girls to fall in love with "him," and soon she cannot turn back from the identity she has presented. Director Céline Sciamma, in her second feature film, presents a fascinating look at gender performance in those too young to comprehend it.

  • XXY

    1/26/13
    6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents XXY. Things get complicated for 15 year-old Alex, who was born as an inter-sexed child—something her parents never really dealt with. When a friend of the family comes to visit with a doctor and his son, it is revealed that Alex's father intended for the doctor to operate on her. Instead, Alex begins to fall in love with the doctor's son…but what will happen when he discovers she is a hermaphrodite? Acclaimed Argentinean director Lucia Puenzo makes a brilliant feature film debut in this multi-layered, raw, and tender coming-of-age tale, complicated by gender confusion. Winner of the Grand Prix at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival and nominated for an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.

  • Family Happiness

    1/26/13
    7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
    Cutler Majestic Theatre
    See artsemerson.org for ticket pricing information

     ArtsEmerson: The World on Stage presents Family Happiness. After sensational multiple appearances at the Lincoln Center Festival in New York, the acclaimed international theatre group "Theatre-Atelier Piotr Fomenko" is debuting in Boston with Family Happiness, a story about the evolution of love, based on the eponymous novel by Leo Tolstoy and adapted for the stage by Piotr Fomenko. Told from the viewpoint of the main heroine, Masha, the play abandons the novel's straightforward storytelling to recall the quiet affair between Masha and her father's friend, Sergey, the first months of happiness, her thirst for social status and the disappointment with society, the return and attempt to build a new, calm kind of family happiness. Passionless, dry and, at times, cynical, Masha rips away the cover of time to reveal the sweet happiness of young love that can never be recaptured.

  • Transamerica

    1/26/13
    9:00 pm - 10:30 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents Transamerica. Felicity Huffman delivers a Golden Globe-winning performance as Bree Osbourne, a conservative transsexual woman who has been scheduled for the official male-to-female surgery. Before she can get there, however, she receives a call from Toby, a 17-year-old boy looking for his father. Bree disguises herself as a Christian social worker and goes to bail Toby out of jail in New York and take him back to Los Angeles. Along the way, however, Bree must decide what information to divulge to her son, and what situation would be the best for both of them. This twist on the traditional family drama looks at the expectations we place on each other and the bonds that extend beyond gender.
