The Footcandle Film Society is pleased to be partnering with the Hickory International Council to screen the French film "The Intouchables" on December 13th at 7pm at the Carolina Theater in downtown Hickory.
All film society members will be admitted for free to the film. Any additional tickets will be sold at the door for $5.00 each (space depending).
About the film:
Based on a true story of friendship between a handicap millionaire (Francois Cluzet) and his street smart ex-con caretaker (Omar Sy), The Intouchables depicts an unlikely camaraderie rooted in honesty and humor between two individuals who, on the surface, would seem to have nothing in common.
The hype for 'Skyfall' started at the opening ceremonies of this summer's olympics with everyone's favorite secret agent skydiving with the Queen. After screening the latest installment in the Bond franchise Alan ( a self proclaimed Bond fanboy) tells whether or not 'Skyfall' deserves to be in the 007 canon.
Sprawling storylines, a star-studded cast, a trio of directors, and a three hour running time. Does 'Cloud Atlas' work as a film or is it an ambitious mess? Chris gives Alan his notes on the latest from the Wachowskis on this Spotlight episode.
Joaquin Phoenix is back - slurring his speech and exhibiting troubling behavior. This time it is not in a faux documentary format but as Freddie Quell in Paul Thomas Anderson's latest film "The Master". Alan and Chris settle in for a discussion or should I say "processing session" on the film in addition to giving their review of the latest animated Disney offering "Wreck It Ralph". Rounding out this episode are some movie news items and recommendations of two movies you may have missed worth checking out.
