"Tower allies itself with the heroes on the ground and the immeasurable courage they displayed, risking everything for the sake of strangers. That's a story worth telling, one worth remembering, and what makes Tower a must-see." Kevin P. Sullivan, Entertainment Weekly. Nearly fifty years ago, a gunman rode the elevator to the twenty-seventh floor of the University of Texas Tower and opened fire. Tower, an animated and action-packed documentary, shares the untold story of that day - when the worst in one man brought out the best in so many others.

"At the center of this emotional maelstrom is the 65-year-old Braga, herself a living legend and bridge to the past. In a long film of many turns, her performance - weathered, proud, sensuous, fragile - captivates and brings us into her world." Bilge Ebiri, The Village Voice. Sonia Braga plays a 65-year-old widow and retired music critic who vows to live in her apartment until she dies after a developer buys all of the units around her.
142 minutes; Portuguese with English subtitles

Friday 6 and 8 pm; Saturday 5 pm; Sunday noon, 2 pm, and 4 pm
"Four years in the making and 15,000 in the telling, French co-directors Jacques Perrin and Jacques Cluzaud's millennia-spanning Seasons does for beasts of the land what the duo's Winged Migration and Oceans did for those of the air and sea." Peter Debruge, Variety.

"Isabelle Huppert delivers a standout performance as a woman turning the tables on her attacker in the controversial director's electrifying and provocative comeback. . . . An outrageous black comedy, volatile and deadly." Xan Brooks, The Guardian.
"Knowingly incendiary but remarkably cool-headed, and built around yet another of Isabelle Huppert's staggering psychological dissections, Paul Verhoeven's long-awaited return to notional genre filmmaking pulls off a breathtaking bait-and-switch: Audiences arriving for a lurid slab of arthouse exploitation will be taken off-guard by the complex, compassionate, often corrosively funny examination of unconventional desires that awaits them." Guy Lodge, Variety.
Michèle (Isabelle Huppert) seems indestructible. Head of a successful video game company, she brings the same ruthless attitude to her love life as to business. Being attacked in her home by an unknown assailant changes Michèle's life forever. When she resolutely tracks the man down, they are both drawn into a curious and thrilling game - a game that may, at any moment, spiral out of control.
R (for violence involving sexual assault, disturbing sexual content, some grisly images, brief graphic nudity, and language); 130 minutes; French with English subtitles
