Get ready to jetset! You might even want to try on an accent just for fun because the Footcandle fellows are talking foreign films starting with France's entry for Best Foreign Language Film in the upcoming Academy Awards. In keeping with the theme they also discuss Pedro Almodovar's upcoming film and give you some recommendations on movies you might have missed that are worth seeing.
On this flashback Footcandle Spotlight episode Alan & Chris revisit the classic Alfred Hitchcock film "Psycho" and discuss whether a film that made audiences jump out of their seats in 1960 holds up today.
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.
