(Thurs) July 5 | IN THE HEART OF THE SEA - THE STORY OF THE ESSEX (“Moby Dick”)
In the winter of 1820, the New England whaling ship, Essex, was assaulted by something no one could believe - a whale of mammoth size and will, and an almost human sense of vengeance. The real-life maritime disaster would inspire Herman Melville’s Moby Dick . But that told only half the story. “In the Heart of the Sea” reveals the encounter’s harrowing aftermath, as the ship’s surviving crew is pushed to their limits and forced to do the unthinkable to stay alive. Braving storms, starvation, panic and despair, the men will call into question their deepest beliefs, from the value of their lives to the morality of their trade, as their captain searches for direction on the open sea and his first mate still seeks to bring the great whale down.
(Wed) July 11 | ENCOUNTERS AT THE END OF THE WORLD - This is a charming documentary about the wondrous beauty of Antarctica and the quirky people who do research and other work there. Of the several other documentary films of Werner Herzog's I've enjoyed (The White Diamond, Grizzly Man, and Cave of Forgotten Dreams), this is my favorite - consistently entertaining, humorous, poignant, and starkly and pristinely beautiful, along with an interesting soundtrack by Henry Kaiser and David Lindley.
(Wed) July 18 | FOOL’S GOLD - Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey re-team on the big screen for this adventurous tale about a treasure-hunting couple whose eight-year quest for the ultimate prize has left them flat broke and fresh out of gas. Finn has sadly neglected his marriage to his loving wife, Tess (Hudson). Tess has grown tired of the hunt, and now she's looking to start her life anew by going to work on the massive yacht of globetrotting billionaire Nigel Honeycutt (Donald Sutherland).
(Wed) July 25 | THE MAN WHO SUED GOD - Australian comedy film starring Billy Connolly and Judy Davis and directed by Mark Joffe . Billy Connolly plays Steve Myers, a lawyer who became a fisherman from frustration. When his one piece of property, his boat, is struck by lightning and destroyed, he is denied insurance because it’s an “Act of God”. Frustrated that his claim is repeatedly declined, Steve files a claim against God, naming church officials as representatives of God and thereby the respondents. The church leaders, their respective lawyers and their insurance company get together to find a way to settle this dilemma, which catches the fancy of the media. It is in court that God's representatives will have to admit that the destruction of Steve's fishing boat was actually God's Act, accept and compensate him, or deny it altogether thereby denying God's existence, leaving the onus on Steve to prove his claim.
