Wild Grass (Les herbes folles)

Part of Alain Resnais
Friday, March 18, 2011, 7:30 p.m.

35mm print from Sony Pictures Classics

Dir. Alain Resnais. 2009, 104 mins. With André Dussollier, Sabine Azéma, Emmanuelle Devos, Mathieu Amalric. A lost wallet opens an adventure of romance and imagination between an elderly househusband and a single dentist who flies airplanes as a hobby. The tone may be whimsical, but the film brilliantly captures the freewheeling, jazzlike inventiveness of the novella by Christian Gailly.

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