Cinema Club Presents: Certified Copy

Monday, June 11th at 6:00 p.m. in the Community Room

Certified Copy movie posterThe great Iranian director Abbas Kiarostami (Close-up) brings us to Tuscany for a luminous and provocative romance in which nothing is as it appears. What seems at first to be a straightforward tale of two people getting to know each other over the course of an afternoon (played by Oscar-winning actress Juliette Binoche and opera singer William Shimell), gradually reveals itself as something richer, stranger, and trickier resulting in a mind-bending reflection on authenticity, in art as well as in relationships. Both cerebrally and emotionally engaging, Certified Copy (Copie conforme) reminds us that love itself is an enigma. This film is unrated.

Join us to view the film and share in the discussion. Refreshments are served.
