They saved a stranger from the sea and in return he stole their hearts. Starring two great “Dames” of the British Cinema, Judy Dench and Maggie Smith, “Ladies in Lavender” takes place in pre-war England where ag-ing sisters Ursula (Dench) and Janet (Smith) live peace-fully in their cottage on the Cornwall coast. One morn-ing following a violent storm, the sisters spot from their garden a nearly-drowned man lying on the beach. They nurse him back to health, and discover that he is Polish. Communicating in broken German while they teach him English, they learn his name is Andrea and that he is a particularly gifted violinist. His boat was on its way to America, where he is headed to look for a better life. It doesn't take long for them to become attached to An-drea, and they dote on him. Other townspeople, how-ever, have their suspicions, especially when he be-friends a Russian woman, Olga, who is vacationing in the area. This is a charming movie with wonderful act-ing and beautiful cinematography. Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times called the film "perfectly sweet and civilized... It's a pleasure to watch Smith and Dench together; their acting is so natural it could be breathing."

Video: How Food Shapes Our Cities

Inspired by discoveries made during cutting-edge research by top biochemists and surgeons, Forks Over Knives examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based products and processed foods. Cameras follow patients who have chronic conditions from heart disease to diabetes and even several forms of cancer and show how adopting a whole-food, plant-based diet as the primary approach to treating their ailments has remarkable results. Written and directed by Lee Fulkerson, this documentary could save your life!

In the video How Food Shapes our Cities Architect Carolyn Steel discusses the daily miracle of feeding a city and shows how ancient food routes shaped the modern world. Every day, in a city the size of London, 30 million meals are served. But where does all the food come from? Food is not just a shared necessity, but also a shared way of thinking. Looking at food networks offers a fascinating and illuminating way to explore how cities evolved.

Please sign up in advance and when possible provide 48 hours notice of cancellation. See you at the movies!
