Movie Club Screenings
Living Room® Theaters is proud to continue offering our unique MOVIE CLUB hosted once a week every Wednesday night at 7:00pm. There is no membership fee to be a part of the club. You only need to buy tickets to the movie(s)/day(s) you wish to attend. Each week we'll gather a small group in an auditorium with a hosted movie introduction followed by a screening of a selected movie title. These titles will usually be advance screenings of upcoming movies at Living Room Theaters. That means the MOVIE CLUB gets a chance to see these movies first!
Following the movie, a post-screening discussion will be led by MOVIE CLUB artistic director Larry Ferber. Larry is known in Palm Beach County for his work as the Director of The Palm Beach Jewish Film Festival as well as being a multi-Emmy nominated television producer. His spirited introductions and conversations will bring you back each week.
Wednesday March 29: FRANTZ
Set in Germany and France in the immediate aftermath of the First World War, (1914-1918), FRANTZ recalls the mourning period that follows great national tragedies as seen through the eyes of the war’s “lost generation”: Anna (21 year-old Paula Beer in a breakthrough performance), a bereft young German woman whose fiancé, Frantz, was killed during trench warfare, and Adrien (Pierre Niney, "Yves Saint Laurent"), a French veteran of the war who shows up mysteriously in her town, placing flowers on Frantz’s grave. Adrien's presence is met with resistance by the small community still reeling from Germany’s defeat, yet Anna gradually gets closer to the handsome and melancholy young man, as she learns of his deep friendship with Frantz, conjured up in evocative flashbacks. What follows is a surprising exploration of how Ozon's characters’ wrestle with their conflicting feelings - survivor’s guilt, anger at one’s losses, the overriding desire for happiness despite everything that has come before, and the longing for sexual, romantic and familial attachments. Ozon drew his inspiration from Ernst Lubitsch’s 1932 drama "Broken Lullaby," with stunning visual references to painter Caspar David Friedrich.7:00pm
