Farewell My Queen

Marking the return of acclaimed director Benoît Jacquot (*A Single Girl*), FAREWELL, MY QUEEN brilliantly captures the passions, debauchery, occasional glimpses of nobility and ultimately the chaos that engulfed the court of Marie Antoinette in the final days before the full-scale outbreak of the Revolution. Based on the best-selling novel by Chantal Thomas, this film stars Léa Seydoux (*The Lobster*) as one of Marie’s ladies-in-waiting, quietly working her way into her mistress’s special favors, until history tosses her fate onto a decidedly different path. With the action moving effortlessly from the gilded drawing rooms of the nobles to the back quarters of those who serve them, this is a period film at once accurate and sumptuous in its visual details and modern in its emotions.

Nominated for a **BAFTA Award** for Best Film not in the English Language. Nominated for a **César Award** for Best Film. Official Selection at the **Cannes Film Festival**. "*To Be and to Have is a movie every teacher should see, and every parent, too.*" - Steven Rea, ***The Philadelphia Inquirer***

The Great Silence

On an unforgiving, snow swept frontier, a group of bloodthirsty bounty hunters, led by the vicious Loco (Klaus Kinski) prey on a band of persecuted outlaws who have taken to the hills. As the price on each head is collected one-by-one, only a mute gunslinger named Silence (Jean-Louis Trintignant, The Conformist) stands between the innocent refuges and the greed and corruption that the bounty hunters represent. But, in this harsh, brutal world, the lines between right and wrong aren't always clear and good doesn't always triumph. Featuring superb photography and a haunting score from maestro Ennio Morricone, director Sergio Corbucci's bleak, brilliant and violent vision of an immoral, honorless west is widely considered to be among the very best and most influential Euro-Westerns ever [...]
