The Barbarian Invasions

Denys Arcand's Academy Award winning film is actually a sequel to his previous hit The Decline of the American Empire. That 1986 drama/comedy was basically the French-Canadian version of The Big Chill. So here we have The Big Chill 20 years later. An aged, womanizing college professor (Rémy Girard) finds out he's dying, so all his intellectual, dope-smoking college pals get back together for one last big rap session. It's sharply written and elegantly acted, but will only seem relevant to a small sliver of the population. In French with English subtitles. 99 minutes
Times and listings are for Friday 8/10 through Thursday 8/16
