Were especially grateful to our Advisory Board 30 movie buffs from Elizabethtown, Essex, Keene, Keene Valley, Keeseville, Peru, Wadhams, Westport, and Willsboro who help us choose the films we show, CVFS president Bruce Stephan said. Jan. 5 Au Revoir, les Enfants: This powerful film by award-winning director Louie Malle follows the friendship of two boys in a French Catholic boarding school during WWII. Jan. 19 The Darjeeling Limited: An offbeat comedy by acclaimed director Wes Anderson about three estranged brothers who travel to India to find themselves and bond with each other. Feb. 2 Away From Her: Julie Christie won the Best Actress award from the National Film Board for this deeply moving love story about a couple coming to grips with the onset of memory loss. Feb. 16 In the Shadow of the Moon: A thrilling documentary about Americas moon voyages, featuring digitally remastered NASA footage, much of it never seen before. In addition, the Film Society will show the following movies in March and April at dates to be announced: No Country for Old Men The Coen brothers filmed this bestselling Cormac McCarthy novel, starring Tommy Lee Jones and Javier Bardem. Many reviewers think this is a likely Oscar winner for both Best Picture and Best Supporting Actor. Into the Wild Sean Penn directed this beautiful, heartfelt drama about young Chris McCandless, who walks out of a privileged life and into the Alaskan wilderness. Based on Jon Krakauers bestseller. Death at a Funeral Frank Oz directed this British comedy about a dysfunctional family that encounters mayhem at every turn as it tries to bury dear old Dad. Juno The indie hit of the year, a family comedy compared by many to Little Miss Sunshine. The Diving Bell and the Butterfly Artist Julian Schnabel directed this remarkable true story about a man who suffers a stroke and discovers that his imagination helps him achieve a life without boundaries. Film Society treasurer Kathryn Reinhardt said, We deeply appreciate the financial support from the Adirondack Community Trust Essex Community Foundation and the Honeybee Community Foundation. We were also very fortunate to receive a Developing Community Arts grant administered by the Arts Council for the Northern Adirondacks. These allow us to show over 20 high-quality movies per year at ticket prices people can afford.
