She risked everything to stop an unjust war. Her government called her a traitor. Based on world-shaking true events, Official Secrets tells the gripping story of Katharine Gun (Keira Knightley), a British intelligence specialist whose job involves routine handling of classified information. One day in 2003, in the lead up to the Iraq War, Gun receives a memo from the NSA with a shocking directive: the United States is enlisting Britain's help in collecting compromising information on United Nations Security Council members in order to blackmail them into voting in favor of an invasion of Iraq. Unable to stand by and watch the world be rushed into an illegal war, Gun makes the gut-wrenching decision to defy her government and leak the memo to the press. So begins an explosive chain of events that will ignite an international firestorm, expose a vast political conspiracy, and put Gun and her family directly in harm's way.

Official Secrets” scratches the surface of a deep and dark universe of things we’re not supposed to know but should.

Free popcorn before the show. Wine and cheese reception afterwards.
Tickets: $10 ($8 for members).

The film, which was nominated for 11 Academy Awards and won 7, including Best Picture, is an epic romance directed by Sydney Pollack. It is breathtakingly filmed on location in East Africa, with sweeping landscapes and music to match.

Based on the life and writings of Baroness Karen Blixen (Meryl Streep), it tells the story of a Danish woman who, despairing that she would be single forever, married her lover's brother, moved out to Kenya to run a coffee plantation on the slopes of Kilimanjaro and later, after she discovered her husband was unfaithful, fell in love with a wild game hunter (Robert Redford) who was willing to take her on, but never wanted to marry. After the farm went bankrupt, Blixen returned to Denmark and wrote of her experiences in Africa under the pen name Isac Dinesan.

Meryl Streep’s performance in Out of Africa is at the highest level of acting in film today…she has realized a character utterly different.

Rupert Goold’s film focuses on Judy Garland’s last London concerts in the weeks before the crooner’s tragic death in 1969 at age 47. The movie rides Garland’s emotional swells as she struggles with her lifelong addictions, being separated from her two youngest children, and her turbulent final marriage to younger man Mickey Deans (Finn Wittrock). Renée Zellweger channels the fragile, rail-thin, bewigged Garland, whose voice has weakened while its emotional intensity has grown. Featuring some of her best-known songs, the film celebrates the voice, the capacity for love, and the sheer pizzazz of "the world's greatest entertainer." Zellweger is already being touted as an Oscar contender for her portrayal of Garland.

It’s all about Reneé Zellweger in a dazzling portrayal of Judy Garland…tough, vulnerable, resilient and wrecked…an utterly transfixing glimpse of the art of screen performance writ gloriously, glamorously large.

SPECIAL EVENT: THE WEIGHT OF WATER

NR01 hours 19 minutesCC
5:00PM
Tickets $10 ($8 for members and youth under 18)
Wine and Cheese Reception starts at 5 p.m.
Filmmaker, mountain climber and expert kayaker Rob Raker, featured in the documentary, The Weight of Water, will introduce the film and stay after for Q & A. Raker was the vocal guide for the star, Eric Weihenmayer, a blind kayaker attempting to paddle the length of the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon. Boothbay resident Henry Barber, an expert free solo mountain climber himself, will introduce his friend Rob Raker and join him afterwards at the Q & A.

After becoming the first blind climber to reach the summit of Mt. Everest, Erik Weihenmayer turned his focus to an entirely different kind of challenge. He learned to kayak, and decided to try to paddle the length of the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. Director Michael Brown, filming amidst the glorious sheer cliffs of the Canyon, chronicles the trip as much more than an adventurous athlete notching another accomplishment in his belt. He captures the emotionally weighted journey, the teamwork and courage of Erik and his kayaking compatriots. Weihenmayer found that "whitewater kayaking is different from any other sport." The current moves unpredictably, the rocks that make up the canyon walls are unforgiving, the roar cuts him off from his guide's voice and violent waves threaten his kayak. As he and his friends paddle, they confront loss, fear and anxiety. They exemplify what people can achieve - and overcome - by working together. And they let the river unlock its priceless lessons. The result is a triumph of the human spirit.
