December 12: Bird People (2014)
Filmworks presents the French experimental drama “Bird People,” an official selection Un Certain Regard at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival. The movie takes place inside a hotel at the Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris, a sometimes dreary site of travel slowdowns and inconvenience that transforms into a place of promise and hope as it serves to bring two lost souls, Gary and Audrey, together. Fed up with the stresses of his work and home life, Gary, an American businessman en route to Dubai, views his overnight layover as an opportunity to start fresh in Europe. For Audrey, a Parisian chambermaid, the hotel is her ticket through college and an opportunity to move on from a humdrum life. As their paths cross nearer in the halls of the hotel, their lives change in an unimaginable way. Directed by French filmmaker Pascale Ferran, who previously directed the 2006 adaptation of D.H. Lawrence’s “Lady Chatterly.” Starring Josh Charles, Anais Demoustier, and Radha Mitchell. In French, English, and Japanese, with English subtitles. 128 minutes. Not rated.
Tickets cost $10 general and $8 for students and seniors. Tickets can be purchased by check or cash at the Tower Theatre box office, 815 E. Olive Ave. For more information: http://fresnofilmworks.org/film/bird-people/
