Mar 12: MARIE’S STORY

Presented in partnership with

Directed by Jean-Pierre Améris. France, 2014, 95 min.

Based on real-life events that took place in the late nineteenth century, Marie’s Story follows the story of a deaf and blind fourteen-year-old girl who can’t communicate with the outside world. Despite the advice of a doctor who believes she is “dumb,” Marie’s father, a humble artisan, cannot bring himself to commit her to an asylum. Out of despair, he takes her to the Larnay Institute near Poitiers where nuns take care of young deaf women. Her Mother Superior’s skepticism notwithstanding, Sister Marguerite, a young nun, takes Marie under her wing and does everything she can to bring her to open up to her surroundings.

Mar 26: 5 TO 7

Directed by Victor Levin. USA, 2014, 95 min.

Outside the Manhattan St. Regis Hotel, aspiring young writer Brian (Anton Yelchin) first meets Arielle (Bérénice Marlohe), the sophisticated wife of a French Diplomat. Though she’s older, married, and the mother of two, Brian can’t help but be drawn to her and the two begin a cinq-a-sept affair. It’s a clash with his traditional values and his parents (Frank Langella and Glenn Close) can barely handle the news, but Brian couldn’t be more smitten. As the two fall deeper in love, Brian begins to wish for more than just the hours of five to seven and soon the two must face the most significant decision of their lives. An emotionally powerful debut from writer and director Victor Levin, who shows how hard you will fight for love when the odds are stacked against you. – Tribeca Film Festival
