  • Far From Heaven

    4/12/13
    6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents Far From Heaven. In a tribute to the "women's films" of the 1950s, writer/director Todd Haynes produces a visually tantalizing and emotionally involved look at the life of one '50s housewife in abnormal circumstances. When she finds out her husband (Dennis Quaid) is having a homosexual affair, Cathy Whitaker (Julianne Moore) realizes that, although she has the perfect veneer of a happy life, she wants more. She seeks solace in the company of a black gardener (Dennis Haysburt), and soon rumors about the two of them begin spreading like wildfire. Providing a personal look at the racial and sexual prejudices of the era, this modern reinterpretation of Douglas Sirk's classic film All That Heaven Allows stands out with tight writing and manicured visuals. Add in the acting talents of Viola Davis and Patricia Clarkson, and Far From Heaven becomes an irresistible, tenderly wrought tale of suppressed love and desire.

  • Medicine For Melancholy

    4/12/13
    9:00 pm - 10:30 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents Medicine For Melancholy. In this internationally acclaimed and award-winning debut feature film by director Barry Jenkins, 24 hours in the life of two African-American twenty-somethings are shown with distinct humanity, vibrancy and heart. What begins as a one-night stand neither truly remember bleeds into a day neither of them will forget. Set against the monotone background of San Francisco, the couple deals with the racism, gentrification and prejudice the city can frequently offer, while experiencing the thrill of new love in this modern urban romance. With as much heart as it has substance, this independent film was a hit during the 2008 festival circuit and became one of the most successful indie-flicks of the year.
