Hard, Fast and Beautiful

The Private Lives of Pippa Lee

See Rebecca Miller’s adaptation of her own novel about Pippa Lee (Wright), a loving mother of two grown children, and the wife of successful publisher Herb (Arkin), who’s 30 years her senior. Stay for a conversation with Miller.


House Party

A memorable snapshot of the era’s social and fashion trends, House Party is a jubilant celebration that also speaks to the importance of appreciating Black culture without ignoring widespread societal problems. The 9/16 screening will be copresented by Afrikan Poetry Theatre and followed by a panel discussion.

She Came to Me

A composer suffering from writer’s block rediscovers his passion after an adventurous one-night stand. A couple of gifted teenagers fight to prove to the parents that their young love is something that can last forever. A woman’s love arrives in the most unexpected places. 



Jalali’s Sundance standout, about a newly immigrated twentysomething from Afghanistan in the San Francisco Bay Area, has an exquisitely modulated tone all its own: somewhere between deadpan comedy and offhand sorrow. Screening 9/15–9/24.

The Shattered Mind

Written, directed, and produced by deaf Black American filmmaker Jade Bryan, The Shattered Mind is about Zhane Rain, a teenager who struggles to find herself, questioning whether she was born deaf, and seeking to understand her recurring nightmares. Free screening on 9/22 supported by the NYC Mayor's Office for People with Disabilities, with director in person!


Elementary Triptych of Spain

The films that comprise José Val del Omar’s Elementary Triptych of Spain (1953–1995) are audiovisual poems of the senses; these encore screenings will take place in the Bartos Screening Room on DCP. 



Endlessly regenerative auteur Oliviers Assayas's prescient fable about desire, vision, control.


Just Wright

In this romantic comedy from director Sanaa Hamri and writer Michael Elliot, physical therapist Leslie Wright (Queen Latifah) helps Scott McKnight (Common) find a second chance at love, compassion, and confidence, on and off the court.


Sylvia Scarlett

On 9/23 and 9/30, see George Cukor and Katharine Hepburn’s screwball passion project. Made soon after the industry-transforming enforcement of Hollywood’s Production Code, it was considered scandalous in its day.
