Juliet, Naked

Director: Jesse Peretz

Cast: Rose Byrne, Ethan Hawke, Chris O'Dowd

Annie is stuck in a long-term relationship with Duncan - an obsessive fan of obscure rocker Tucker Crowe. Duncan is far more devoted to his music idol than to Annie. When the acoustic demo of Tucker's hit record from 25 years ago surfaces, it leads to a life-changing encounter between Annie and the elusive rocker himself.

All screenings are at the Harkins Scottsdale 101.

The Miseducation of
Cameron Post

 

Director: Desiree Akhavan

Cast: Chloë Grace Moretz, Jennifer Ehle, Quinn Shephard, Sasha Lane, John Gallagher Jr.

Synopsis:  Cameron Post (Chloë Grace Moretz) looks the part of a perfect high school girl. But after she's caught with another girl in the back seat of a car on prom night, Cameron is quickly shipped off to a conversion therapy center that treats teens struggling with same-sex attraction. At the facility, Cameron is subjected to outlandish discipline, dubious de-gaying methods, and earnest Christian rock songs but this unusual setting also provides her with an unlikely gay community. For the first time, Cameron connects with peers, and she's able to find her place among fellow outcasts.

All screenings are at the Harkins Scottsdale 101.

 

Wednesday, August 8th at 7pm

The Wife

Director: Björn Runge

Cast: Glenn Close, Jonathan Pryce, Christian Slater, Max Irons, Harry Lloyd, Annie Stark, Elizabeth McGovern

Synopsis:  After nearly forty years of marriage, JOAN and JOE CASTLEMAN (Glenn Close and Jonathan Pryce) are complements. Where Joe is casual, Joan is elegant. Where Joe is vain, Joan is self-effacing. And where Joe enjoys his very public role as Great American Novelist, Joan pours her considerable intellect, grace, charm, and diplomacy into the private role of Great Man's Wife. Joe is about to be awarded the Nobel Prize for his acclaimed and prolific body of work. Joe's literary star has blazed since he and Joan first met in the late 1950. THE WIFE interweaves the story of the couple's youthful passion and ambition with a portrait of a marriage, thirty-plus years later?a lifetime's shared compromises, secrets, betrayals, and mutual love.

All screenings are at the Harkins Scottsdale 101 and start at 7pm.
