Leading Lady

South Africa | 2014 | 96 minutes | Henk Pretorius

From the director of Fanie Fourie's Lobola, winner of the SIFF 2013 Golden Space Needle Award for Best Film, comes this laugh-out-loud comedy about a  struggling actress who enlists a South African sheep farmer to help her prepare for a make-or-break film role.

Love and Lemons

Mood Indigo

France | 2013 | 95 minutes | Michel Gondry

Michel Gondry’s surreal visual feast is the wildly imaginative tale of Colin, a posh Parisian bachelor who invents gadgets that delight his friends. But love eludes him until he meets Chloe (Audrey Tautou), whose strange medical condition—a flower grows inside her lungs—adds a bittersweet frisson to their true romance.

Mr. Deeds Goes to Town

USA | 1936 | 115 minutes | Frank Capra

Capra’s screwball classic features Gary Cooper as a small-town greeting card poet who inherits a fortune, and falls prey to a scheming crop of opportunistic characters. A brand-new restoration from the original negative.

Not My Type

France | 2014 | 111 minutes | Lucas Belvaux

Can love be sustained between opposite types? This across-the-tracks romance between a Parisian philosophy teacher sent to a small-town university and a local karaoke-obsessed hairdresser is punctuated by music that expresses the characters’ yearnings.

Obvious Child

USA | 2014 | 83 minutes | Gillian Robespierre

27-year-old Brooklynite Donna is dumped, fired, and impregnated in quick succession. Truth-telling works in her comedy, but can she do the same in her personal life? Hilarious turns from an ensemble cast meet Slate’s own in a swirl of biting wit, raw honesty, and sweet romance.

The One I Love - Encore Screening

USA | 2014 | 91 minutes | Charlie McDowell

June 8 | Closing Night Gala | Party at MOHAI follows the screening.

On the recommendation of their therapist, a married couple spends a weekend away at a vacation home, where their romantic rekindling takes a turn for the surreal.

They Came Together

USA | 2014 | 83 minutes | David Wain

June 7 | Saturday Night Film and Party

Comedy titans Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler lampoon rom-com conventions in this snappy sendup of boy-meets-girl, also starring New York City. Overly sincere and saccharine clichés are spoofed with gut-busting gags and irreverent laughs.

To Fool a Thief

Argentina | 2013 | 105 minutes | Ariel Winograd

Who can scam a scammer? In this clever nod to Hitchcock’s To Catch a Thief, Sebastian and Natalia meet, and clash, while attempting to pilfer the same artwork from a museum. Then, they team up—with sights set on a coveted bottle of Malbec.
