FIGS FOR ITALO
I
n this magnific drama, award-winning director Bob Celli draws from his own family's stories to paint a delicate portrait of Dora, a woman who's present-day memories of 1943 Italy remain barely suppressed. As American bombers pound the hills around a picturesque Italian village, one can feel the tremors rumbling today through the elderly survivor, whose fear is immediate and shared.

Celli achieves this effect through masterful art direction and cinematography, most notably in the flashback sequences, and through the intimacy he employs in his modern-day scenes. Although the emphasis is on what is felt as opposed to the spoken word, little is left unsaid in this highly touted, award-winning piece.

EASY WAY OUT
Martin and Kaitlin are playing out their relationship endgame in the re-imagined turn-of-the-century loft they once called home. While it appears Kaitlin is just leaving her husband of twelve years for a much younger lover, we learn her reasons have more to do with honesty and bravery than easy lust and sexual adventure. Starring John Savage.
