Cold War

Sunday, February 17 and Thursday, February 21

From the director of IDA, winner of the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film (2014), comes a passionate drama of Wiktor and Zula, star-crossed lovers (based on the filmmaker’s parents), who move from Soviet-dominated Poland to the jazz clubs of Paris and back again over a 15-year period, beginning in 1949. With vastly different backgrounds and temperaments, they are fatefully mismatched and yet condemned to each other. Set against the background of the Cold War in 1950s Poland, Berlin, Yugoslavia and Paris, it's the tale of a couple separated by politics, character flaws and unfortunate twists of fate - an impossible love story in impossible times.

Directed by Pawel Pawlikowski.
Runtime: 89 mins
Rated: R

“One of the best pictures of the year.” – A.O. Scott, The New York Times

“Critic’s Pick... Thomasz Kot, a genius of slow-burning longing... a terrifically vivid Joanna Kulig… Throughout, their longing for each other — as well as the music they make, together and apart — expresses searching ideas about art and authenticity, national identity and cultural nostalgia… [Filmmaker PaweĊ‚ Pawlikowski’s] two impossible, irresistible lovers are so beguiling that you would like to linger longer, learn more, see more. The movie is filled with ordinary and surprising beauty, with gleaming and richly textured surfaces, and the kind of velvety black chiaroscuro you can get lost in. Its greatest strengths, though, are its two knockout leads, who give the story its heat, its flesh and its heartbreak.” – Manohla Dargis, The New York Times
