Clouds of Sils Maria

WhereLandmark Theatres - La Jolla Village Cinemas
When: April 25 - April 30

Juliette Binoche, Kristen Stewart and Chloë Grace Moretz light up this scintillating showbiz drama from acclaimed writer/director Olivier Assayas (Late August, Early September, Clean).  At the peak of her international career, Maria Enders (Binoche) is asked to perform in a revival of the play that made her famous twenty years ago. But back then she played the role of Sigrid, an alluring young girl who disarms and eventually drives her boss Helena to suicide. Now she is being asked to step into the other role, that of the older Helena. She departs with her assistant (Stewart, winner of the César Award for Best Supporting Actress) to rehearse in Sils Maria, a remote region of the Alps. A young Hollywood starlet with a penchant for scandal (Moretz) is to take on the role of Sigrid, and Maria finds herself on the other side of the mirror, face to face with an ambiguously charming woman who is, in essence, an unsettling reflection of herself. A bewitching tale of backstage rivalry, Clouds of Sils Maria is propelled by tour-de-force performances from three actresses at the top of their game.

Dior and I

WhereLandmark Theatres - Ken Cinema in Kensington
When: April 25 - April 30

In 2012, legendary French fashion house Christian Dior Couture announced the appointment of designer Raf Simons as its head Creative Director. Dior and I takes a privileged, behind-the-scenes look at the high stakes, high tension makings of Simons’ debut haute couture collection and how it returned to the origins of the house of Dior. The film also takes an intimate, cinema vérité-style glimpse at the inner workings of the Dior atelier, capturing the entire eight-week process up until the premiere of Simons’ collection. Some of the atelier workers—the heart and soul of the fashion industry—have sewed for Dior for decades and do so with an unbridled passion. Together, they form a support system for Simons and help to create his masterpiece collection, with every line they sketch and bead they sew. A whirlwind of creativity, stress, determination and triumph, Dior and I marks the third fashion film for writer/director Frédéric Tcheng, who previously co-wrote and co-directed Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel and co-produced Valentino: The Last Emperor. (Partially subtitled)

La fille mal gardée
ballet presented by Fathom Events

Where: Screened at Horton Plaza

When: May 5, 2015 at 7:00pm ($25 per ticket)

Fathom Events invites you to experience a joyous tale when La Fille mal gardée is screened in select cinemas nationwide on Tuesday, May 5.

Based on an 1828 French ballet of the same name and inspired by choreographer Frederick Ashton’s love of the Suffolk countryside, La Fille mal gardée is one of the choreographer’s most joyous creations. Laced with good humor as a whirl of dancing chickens, grouchy guardians and halfwit suitors take to the stage, Ashton’s final full-length ballet incorporates some of his most virtuosic choreography to depict a charming, simple tale of boy meets girl. With elements of national folk dance incorporated throughout, from a Lancashire clog dance to a traditional maypole dance, this emphatically English work has remained a celebrated classic in The Royal Ballet's repertory since its successful premiere in 1960.

This brilliant work features music adapted by John Lanchbery from Ferdinand Hérold's original score and colorful designs by Osbert Lancaster that reinforce the robust wit of the lively production.
