OPENING NIGHT A graphic artist (Ewan McGregor) who has always been unlucky in love embarks on a new relationship and gradually absorbs the lessons imparted by his father (Christopher Plummer), who emerges from a long, passionless marriage at 75 and comes out of the closet, refusing to let even a cancer diagnosis blunt his eagerness to let love into his life.
CLOSING NIGHT French actor Mathieu Amalric directs and stars in this sexy yet wistful comedy about a disgraced French TV producer making a comeback with a troupe of buxom, brassy American burlesque performers touring the French countryside. Their manager may be seeking redemption, but these ladies are pros, so regardless of the outcome the show must go on.
CENTERPIECE Terri is a heavy, shambling, pajama-wearing junior high student, the physical incarnation of all the insecurity and awkwardness that accompanies emerging adolescence. When vice principal Fitzgerald (John C. Reilly) tags Terri as an at-risk student, an unexpected friendship blooms between two misfits in this hilariously touching tale of youth in transition.
