Boston French Film Festival at MFA in JULY
Allons au cinéma! The Boston French Film Festival returns next month with a three-week showcase of new films, including Benoît Jacquot’s touching and tense love triangle 3 Hearts, featuring star-studded performances by Benoît Poelvoorde, Catherine Deneuve, Charlotte Gainsbourg, and Chiara Mastroianni. Also screening is the hit politically incorrect comedy about stereotypes and marriage, Serial (Bad) Weddings. In the thrilling Next Time I’ll Aim for the Heart, police track a French serial killer—with astonishing results. Flaubert’s classic Madame Bovary receives a cheeky retelling in the rom-com Gemma Bovery. And stay up-to-date on all our screenings—follow @MFABostonFilm on Twitter.
22 years after the events of Jurassic Park, Isla Nublar now features a dinosaur adventure park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond. This new park is owned by the Patel Corporation. Owen (Chris Pratt), a member of Jurassic World's on-site staff, conducts behavioral research on the Velociraptors. Jurassic World's attendance rates begin to decline and a new attraction, created to re-spark visitor interest, backfires.
Love and Mercy
Brian Wilson, the leader of the Beach Boys, writes more than 15 Top 40 hit singles including the groundbreaking 1966 "Pet Sounds" album before suffering a nervous breakdown during the making of its follow-up album "Smile." He struggles with mental illness, but Brian manages to persevere as an artist with the love and support of his wife Melinda.
Movie star Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier), together with his boys, Eric (Kevin Connolly), Turtle (Jerry Ferrara) and Johnny (Kevin Dillon), are back…and back in business with super agent-turned-studio head Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven). Some of their ambitions have changed, but the bond between them remains strong as they navigate the capricious and often cutthroat world of Hollywood.
Infinitely Polar Bear
While most fathers spend their days at work, CAM STUART (Mark Ruffalo) is more likely to be found mushroom-hunting, cooking elaborate meals, or working on one of his many half-completed projects. His family's wealth keeps his family just barely afloat, while Cam struggles to live with manic depression. When Cam has a manic breakdown that lands him in a mental hospital, his wife MAGGIE (Zoe Saldana) and their two young daughters, AMELIA and FAITH, are forced to leave their house in the country and move into a cramped apartment in Cambridge, where Maggie tries to find a decent job, with no luck.
