Academy Award nominee Isabelle Huppert stars in THINGS TO COME, coming to The Frida Cinema for just four days this weekend!
What happens when the life you’ve worked so hard to build falls apart all at once? Nathalie (Huppert, in a radiant, award-winning performance) is a philosophy teacher with a seemingly settled existence, juggling a rich life of the mind with the day-to-day demands of career and family (including frequent visits to her drama queen mother, played by the legendary Édith Scob). But beginning with the bombshell revelation that her husband of twenty-five years is leaving her, one by one the pillars of Nathalie’s life start to crumble. For the first time in ages, she finds herself adrift, but also with a newfound sense of liberation. With nothing to hold her back, Nathalie sets out to define this new phase of her life and to rediscover herself.Find out more »
Director Stephen Daldry's THE HOURS was adapted from Michael Cunningham's novel of the same title. The film features three women of different generations living vastly different lives, all connected by Virginia Woolf's novel Mrs. Dalloway: a struggling 1950s housewife (Julianne Moore), Woolf herself (Nicole Kidman, in her Oscar-winning performacne), and a contemporary New Yorker living a life oddly similar to that of Dalloway herself, thus earning the nickname of "Mrs. Dalloway" (Meryl Streep). The film, with brief exception, follows each of these women through the events of a single day, twisting their stories into an elegant and powerful braid.Find out more »
