“Director Ira Sachs (Keep the Lights On) humanizes a hot-button social issue but, more importantly, turns this autumnal love story into something heartfelt and, ultimately, tragic. Bring tissues. Lots of them.” David Fear, Rolling Stone. After Ben (John Lithgow) and George (Alfred Molina ) get married, George is fired from his teaching post, forcing them to stay with friends separately while they sell their place and look for cheaper housing—a situation that weighs heavily on all involved

The idea of “slow art” has its origins in the “slow food” movement centered on the enjoyment and appreciation of food that began in Italy in the late 1980s. The aim of the slow art movement is to break from the frenetic pace of modern life to simply enjoy works of art in a deliberate and unhurried fashion. Led by a Modern docent the third Friday of each month, Slow Art at the Modern features a 30-minute tour beginning at 5:30 pm that focuses on one work of art.

The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth presents URBAN THEATER: NEW YORK ART IN THE 1980s. Vibrant, vital, and discordant, the New York art scene of the 1980s gave rise to some of the contemporary art world’s most recognizable features. As the artists who emerged in that decade now set records at auction, the era is ripe to be reexamined. Representing in turns a cool irony, reflections on media culture, consumerism, cartoons, and street art, the work collected here re-creates the tense energy of a grittier New York.
