Mon oncle d’Amérique


With Gérard Depardieu, Nicole Garcia, Roger Pierre. Scenes from the intersecting lives of three characters—a farm boy turned factory worker, a failed actress, and a self-centered intellectual—are intercut with commentary by the real behavioral scientist Henri Laborit. Fluid, witty, and engaging, this was one of the biggest commercial successes of Resnais’s career.

Tickets to Friday evening screenings are $10 ($7.50 for students and senior citizens).
