May 5  20th Century Women

During the summer of 1979, a Santa Barbara single mom and boardinghouse landlord (Annette Bening) decides the best way she can parent her teenage son (Lucas Jade Zumann) is to enlist her young tenants – a quirky punk photographer (Greta Gerwig), a mellow handyman (Billy Crudup) and her son’s shrewd best friend (Elle Fanning) – to serve as role models in a changing world..  Rating: R (for sexual material, language, some nudity and brief drug use) Runtime: 2 hours.

 

May 12   Paterson

Paterson is a bus driver in the city of Paterson, New Jersey–they share the name. Every day, Paterson adheres to a simple routine: he drives his daily route, observing the city as it drifts across his windshield and overhearing fragments of conversation swirling around him; he writes poetry into a notebook; he walks his dog; he stops in a bar and drinks exactly one beer; he goes home to his wife, Laura. By contrast, Laura’s world is ever changing. New dreams come to her almost daily. Paterson loves Laura and she loves him. He supports her newfound ambitions; she champions his gift for poetry. The film quietly observes the triumphs and defeats of daily life, along with the poetry evident in its smallest details. Rating: R (for some language) Runtime: 2 hours.

 

May 19   Silver Skies

A group of retirees (George Hamilton, Valerie Perrine, Barbara Bain, Mariette Hartley, Jack McGee and Alex Rocco) enjoy a leisurely lifestyle of golf and free breakfasts in the Los Angeles retirement complex they call home. But when it’s announced that their building will be turned into pricey condos that not all of them can afford, they must band together to find a solution. No Rating. Runtime: 1 hour and a half.

 

May 26   La La Land

Sick of serving coffee to movie stars, Mia is an aspiring actress rushing around Los Angeles to audition for the big break that will finally let her quit her day job; Sebastian plays jazz piano at dive bars while waiting to be discovered. These two fall head-over-heels in love with each other but when their careers start to take off, their new found success puts their romance to the test. They will have to decide whether living their dreams of fame is worth the heartbreak. Stars: Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, John Legend. Rating: PG13. Runtime: 2 hours.
