TONI MORRISON: THE PIECES I AM
Directed by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, 2019 [PG-13]
As with Morrison’s books, The Pieces I Am invites multiple, maybe even piecemeal, encores, because few writers wield the capacity to leave their readers with an evolving parting message with each subsequent reread.
– Melissa Vincent, Globe and Mail
This artful and intimate meditation on the legendary storyteller examines her life, her works and the powerful themes she has confronted throughout her literary career.

THE LAST BLACK MAN IN SAN FRANCISCO
Directed by Joe Talbot, 2019 [R]
The Last Black Man in San Francisco is a poetic and picturesque ode to the title city, to friendship and to the universal urge to find a place to call home.
– Peter Howell, Toronto Star
Jimmie and his best friend Mont try to reclaim the house built by Jimmie’s grandfather, launching them on a poignant odyssey that connects them to their past, even as it tests their friendship and sense of belonging in the place they call home.
Friday, October 18
Directed by Olivia Wilde, 2019 [R]
Booksmart feels innovative, inclusive, and progressive. Without a doubt, it is one of the best debut films by an actor-turned-director.

WOMAN AT WAR
Directed by Benedikt Erlingsson, 2018 [Not Rated] Icelandic w/English Subtitles
What can one person do to combat the forces of climate change and globalized industry? Quite a bit, as Benedikt Erlingsson would have us believe in Woman at War.
– Lisa Trifone, Third Coast Review
Halla, a woman in her forties, declares war on the local aluminum industry to prevent it from disfiguring her country. She risks all she has to protect the highlands of Iceland-but the situation could change with the unexpected arrival of a small orphan in her life.
Friday, November 1st
Directed by Jordan Peele, 2019 [R]
With Us, Peele has solidified himself as one of the most original voices within the horror genre.
– Jay Krieger, Cultured Vultures
Haunted by an unexplainable and unresolved trauma from her past and compounded by a string of eerie coincidences, Adelaide feels her paranoia elevate to high-alert as she grows increasingly certain that something bad is going to befall her family. After spending a tense beach day with their friends, the Tylers (Emmy winner Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker, Cali Sheldon, Noelle Sheldon), Adelaide and her family return to their vacation home. When darkness falls, the Wilsons discover the silhouette of four figures holding hands as they stand in the driveway. Us pits an endearing American family against a terrifying and uncanny opponent: doppelgängers of themselves.
Let’s watch movies outside together.
