Irish Film Institutue (IFI) Open captioned screenings September 2016.

CAFÉ SOCIETY– Opens Friday, September 2nd   (12A)

Jesse Eisenberg is the latest in a continuum of leading men who have essayed versions of Woody Allen’s unique persona in the director’s later years, and he fills the shoes better than most as Bobby, a typically neurotic New Yorker who moves to Los Angeles to work for his uncle Phil (Steve Carrell), a suave Hollywood agent to the stars. Complications arise when Phil assigns his PA (Kirsten Stewart) to look after the nervous Bobby, whom he swiftly falls for, even though she is having an affair with a married man. Bathed in amber hues by the great cinematographer Vittorio Storaro, Café Society, with its gorgeously realized, if romanticized recreation of 30’s Hollywood glamour is that most unexpected of Woody Allen films, a love letter to LA, a city he has more often lampooned.

There will be Open Captioned (OC) screenings on Friday, September 9th (13.45) and Tuesday, September 13th (18.20).

CAPTAIN FANTASTIC Opens September 9th  (15A)

Ben Cash (Viggo Mortensen) and his wife have raised their six children in a self-sufficient environment almost completely cut off from the larger world. When she commits suicide, the children are determined to attend their mother’s funeral in New Mexico despite their father’s reluctance to engage with social norms, or the father–in–law (Frank Langella) who despises him. As the children are both fascinated and repelled by what they see and who they encounter on the journey, they begin to realise how different they are from their peers, and Ben’s parenting choices are questioned.

There will be Open Captioned (OC) screenings on September 12th (13.10) and 15th (18.10).


HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE Opens September 16th (12A)

From director Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows) comes this good–natured and very funny story of rebellious city kid Ricky (Julian Dennison), who is placed on an isolated farm with kind-hearted Bella and gruff Hec (Sam Neill), his new foster parents. When Bella suddenly dies, Ricky runs into the forest rather than return to state care. When an accident strands him and the pursuing Hec in the wilderness, the outside world believes that Hec has abducted the boy, and a massive manhunt begins. Filled with humour and warmth, it’s an irresistibly charming film.

There will be Open Captioned (OC) screenings on September 20th (18.30) and 21st (16.00).
