Held Over: THE ICEMAN Starring Lexington Native Michael Shannon; RENOIR Opens June 7; THE LORAX-Free Show; This Week’s Classic: THE SHINING

renoirSet on the French Riviera in the summer of 1915, Gilles Bourdos’ lushly atmospheric drama RENOIR tells the story of celebrated Impressionist painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir, in declining health at age 74, and his middle son Jean, who returns home to convalesce after being wounded in World War I.

RENOIR locates a fascinating moment of change, one century’s way of thinking giving way to the next, and the passing of the torch from a great painter to the great filmmaker of such classics as Grand Illusion and Rules of the Game. trailer
