FilmCentral: 'Cleo From 5 to 7'
Welcome to FilmCentral! Our talented staff, Cullen and James, will announce a movie to discuss at the beginning of each month. You’ll have a few weeks to watch the movie, selected from titles streaming on either Kanopy or Hoopla. Then, on the third Wednesday of each month from 6-7 p.m., we will meet on Zoom and discuss. You can pop your own popcorn, wear your fuzzy slippers (or your dinner jacket) and talk cinema. See you at the movies! Please RSVP to receive a link to this online event.
This month's film is Cleo From 5 to 7 by Agnes Varda, who captures Paris in the sixties by following a singer (Corinne Marchand) set adrift in the city as she awaits test results of a biopsy. The breakdown of a small snapshot in a single woman's life, Cleo From 5 to 7 mixes heartbreakingly realistic depictions of daily life with melodrama to make a gripping viewing experience not found in many more conventional films.
