Il Divo
Paolo Sorrentino
Hard on the heels of the acclaimed Gomorrah, Italian corruption gets a much quieter but equally vigorous workout in Paolo Sorrentino's highly stylized portrait of the country's most enduring political leader, Prime Minister Giulio Andreotti. Teflon doesn't begin to describe the Christian Democrat who...survived a major bribery and corruption investigation, while opponents and former allies mysteriously dropped dead around him. Il Divo plays like an elegantly ritualized black comedy, with Sorrentino deploying every formal tool in his arsenal to disrupt facile interpretations of Andreotti's strategically opaque character. Toni Servillo plays Andreotti with brilliant restraint" (Ella Taylor, Village Voice). Winner of the Jury Prize at Cannes. Includes making-of featurette, deleted scenes, and director interview. In Italian with English subtitles. Italy, 2008, 110 mins.

Summer Hours
Olivier Assayas
In Olivier Assayas' critically acclaimed family drama, three siblings (Juliette Binoche, Charles Berling and Jeremie Renier) inherit their late mother's (Edith Scob) beautiful country estate and must decide what to do with a lifetime of objects and memories. "...almost Ozu-like in its evocation of a parent's death and the dissolving bond between the surviving children. It's also an essay on the nature of sentimental and real value--as well as the need to protect French culture in a homogenizing world" (J. Hoberman, Village Voice). With subtle, admirable cinematography by Eric Gautier (A Christmas Tale). In French with English subtitles. France, 2008, 99 mins.
