CA Weekly Film Club Update

Film Club Members!
Laced with black humor, the unexpectedly heartwarming crime comedy A SOMEWHAT GENTLE MAN starts Friday, January 28 at the Nuart Theatre for an exclusive one week engagement. Stellan Skarsgård stars as Ulrik, a somewhat gentle man. Just released from 12 years of prison, Ulrik has no plans. He'd like to go straight, but the only contact he has, his former boss the crime lord Jensen (Bjørn Floberg), is strangely determined that Ulrik should revenge himself on the snitch who sent him to prison. Ulrik would rather not. He takes the job Jensen gets him fixing cars, where the lovely but surly Merete catches his eye; he takes the room arranged for him, a grim basement in the house of Jensen's battleaxe of a sister, who welcomes recreational sex. Gradually, approaching his hostile ex-wife and his stranger son, Ulrik comes more alive and starts to take charge of his new life with surprising results. Features a great performance by Skarsgård (Good Will Hunting, Insomnia). Directed by Hans Petter Moland (The Beautiful Country, Aberdeen, Zero Kelvin).

ALSO NEW THIS WEEK: THE RITE, a psychological thriller starring Anthony Hopkins that uncovers the devil's reach to even one of the holiest places on earth, opens at The Landmark. 127 HOURS, nominated for 6 Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Actor (James Franco), is the true story of mountain climber Aron Ralston's (Franco) remarkable adventure to save himself after a fallen boulder crashes on his arm and traps him in an isolated canyon in Utah. The acclaimed drama returns to The Landmark on Friday, January 28. Read Landmark Theatres' exclusive interview with director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire), who discusses the film's survival theme, the character's emotional journey, and the challenges posed by the film's setting.
