The Newton Theatre To Screen "1945" and "Lady Bird" In December
(NEWTON, NJ) -- The Newton Theatre will be screening two new movies this month, 1945 and Lady Bird. 1945 is an award-winning film (San Francisco Film Critics Circle Award, San Francisco Jewish Film Festival, Miami Jewish Film Festival), based on the acclaimed short story "Homecoming" by Gábor T. Szántó. In Lady Bird, Greta Gerwig reveals herself to be a bold new cinematic voice with her directorial debut, excavating both the humor and pathos in the turbulent bond between a mother and her teenage daughter. Tickets are $10.00 for each.
In 1945, director Ferenc Török paints a complex picture of a society trying to come to terms with the recent horrors they’ve experienced, perpetrated, or tolerated for personal gain. A superb ensemble cast, lustrous black and white cinematography, and historically detailed art direction contribute to an eloquent drama that reiterates Thomas Wolfe’s famed sentiment: you can’t go home again. 1945 will be shown at The Newton Theatre Monday and Tuesday, December 11th and 12th at 7:00pm.
In Lady Bird, Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson (Saoirse Ronan) fights against but is exactly like her wildly loving, deeply opinionated and strong-willed mom (Laurie Metcalfe), a nurse working tirelessly to keep her family afloat after Lady Bird’s father (Tracy Letts) loses his job. Set in Sacramento, California in 2002, amidst a rapidly shifting American economic landscape, Lady Bird is an affecting look at the relationships that shape us, the beliefs that define us, and the unmatched beauty of a place called home. Lady Bird will be shown at The Newton Theatre Monday and Tuesday, December 18th and 19th at 7:00pm.
The historic Newton Theatre is located at 234 Spring Street in Newton, NJ. Additional information may be found at www.TheNewtonTheatre.com or by calling 973-940-NEWT.
