International Film Festival Begins in July

The Clarence Dillon Public Library will be hosting its Fourth Annual International Film Festival beginning on Tuesday, July 6, 2010. The film festival will screen current and classic films every Tuesday evening during July and August. All screenings begin at 6:45 pm. The beautiful and talented Audrey Tautou (a CDPL favorite) begins the festival with COCO BEFORE CHANEL (7/6), a look at the early life of Coco Chanel. RUDO AND CURSI (7/13) is a comedy about a couple of soccer playing brothers. It is a perfect film for all of the World Cup fans. We are next screening a powerful and passionate Dutch film, THE BLACK BOOK (7/20)about a young Jewish woman working for the resistance during World War II. The dark English comedy DEATH AT A FUNERAL (7/27)winds up July. Penelope Cruz teams up again with Pedro Almodovar for the complex drama BROKEN EMBRACES (8/3)in August. For those Charles Boyer fans we are screening the 1936 MAYERLING (8/10) about the tragedy surrounding Crown Prince Rudolf of Austria. Monica Ali's best-selling book, BRICK LANE (8/17), comes to life on the screen and portrays a Bangladeshi woman living in London. Our next film, PARIS, (8/24) is a love letter to the City of Lights and stars Juliette Binoche. Our final film of the festival is a gritty drama SIN NOMBRE. (8/31) This film is concerns a young Honduran woman trying to come to the United States. It is considered one of the best foreign films of 2009. The ratings and a synopsis of each film can be found on our website at Come to the library and beat the heat with a great lineup of films!
