HIDDEN GEMS WEEK AT THE STATE

With the year rapidly wrapping up we wanted to assemble a small collection of the best films of 2016 that you may have missed:

LOVE & FRIENDSHIP - Playing Sunday, November 13 at 1:00 and 5:45 pm
We showed this charming adaptation of a lesser-known Jane Austen book a few months ago, and it was a big hit. It's a story about a clever, conniving woman who knows how to manipulate the people in her life to get what she needs. And while that descriptor sounds sort of mean, once you meet Lady Susan Vernon (Kate Beckinsale) you'll see her charm knows no bounds.

SING STREET - Playing Monday, November 14 at 3:30 and 8:30 pm
This film was a fit at the TCFF this year, and we're pleased to bring it back for one more encore. It's an uplifting tale of a shy young man in 1980's England who forms a New Wave rock band to win over the girl of his dreams. And the music infused throughout makes it even more enjoyable

SWISS ARMY MAN - Playing Tuesday, November 15 at 9:00 pm 
Now this one is sort of a tough sell, but trust us: A movie where Harry Potter's farting corpse helps a shipwrecked man (Paul Dano) escape from a deserted island? It sounds gross and immature but we assure it's not. It's sweet, funny, clever, eye-opening, and totally worth your time.

CHEVALIER - Playing Wednesday, November 16 at 1:00 and 6:00 pm
In this goofy farce of the male ego, a group of friends on a fishing trip aboard a luxury yacht in the Aegean Sea, agree to a series of contests that escalate into absurdity (who has the lowest cholesteral, who can build IKEA furniture the fastest, that sort of thing) all in the name of deciding who is the "chevalier!"

KNIGHT OF CUPS - Playing Thursday, November 17 at 3:15 and 8:30 pm 
From master director Terrance Malick comes a story of one man's tormented search for meaning across the vivid landscapes of Los Angeles and Las Vegas as he grapples with his relationships with his family and six very different women from his past. And since it's Malick you know it's gonna be halla vivid.

THE CHILDHOOD OF A LEADER - Playing all week long
This stunning directoral debut from actor-turned-director Brady Corbet tells the story of a sociopathic little boy who learns how to manipulate the adults around him, setting the table for a frightening, ascent to power as an adult. Sound familiar?
