Sept. 20/17 – The Wedding Plan – FilmsWeLike (110 minutes, PG) * subtitles Tomatometer 84%

The Wedding Plan The second film from American-Israeli writer and director Rama Burshtein (Fill the Void), The Wedding Plan is a poignant and funny romantic comedy about love, marriage and faith in life’s infinite possibilities.

At 32, Michal is finally looking forward to the comfort and security of marriage, when she is blindsided by her fiancé’s decision to call off the wedding with only a month’s notice. Unwilling to return to lonely single life, Michal decides to put her trust in fate and continue with her wedding plans, believing Mr. Right will appear by her chosen date. Confident she will find a match made in heaven, she books a venue, sends out invitations and buys a wedding dress, as her skeptical mother and sister look on with trepidation.

During Michal’s month-long search for a spouse, she enlists the help of two different matchmakers, goes on a series of disastrous blind dates and finds an unexpected connection with a charming but utterly unsuitable pop star – all while dismissing pleas by concerned friends and family members that she reconsider her risky plan. As the day of the ceremony grows closer and no suitor appears, Michal puts everything on the line to find happiness.

Oct. 11/17 – Lady Macbeth – D Films – Tomatometer 88% (90 minutes R)

Lady MacbethBritish stage director William Oldroyd makes his cinematic debut with this striking adaptation of Nikolai Leskov's famous play Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk District, relocated to Victorian England. Trapped in a marriage to a much older man and marooned on an estate amidst the bleak northern heaths, Lady Katherine (Florence Pugh) paces her constrictive world like a wild animal looking for escape. She soon finds an outlet for her stifled desires in an affair with a young groom — but the couple's passion could prove to be their undoing.

Oct. 25/17 – From The Land Of The Moon – Pacific Northwest Pictures – (120 minutes, R)

From The Land Of The MoonA sensual, independent-minded woman is considered a danger to herself and the natural order of society in From The Land Of The Moon, a languid, handsomely crafted adaptation of the Milena Agus novel. The film is a period piece with a third-act twist. Marion Cotillard is a rural woman in an unhappy arranged marriage. The film unfolds almost entirely in flashback during WW2. Nicole Garcia’s film is a well-crafted and subdued.
