Join the Boston Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Jun 22nd at 7:15pm for Alexandra at the Kendall Square Cinema . Look for Sean wearing a nametag in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
“Alexandra, played by opera legend Galina Vishnevskaya, is an elderly woman who has come to see her beloved grandson Denis (Vasily Shevtsov), a young officer at a remote military outpost. In oppressive heat, with the enemy just beyond the compound, she acquaints herself with the routines of military life and makes a revealing trip into the outlying countryside. An official Selection at the Cannes, Toronto and New York Film Festivals, Alexandra is a powerful new film from the great Alexander Sokurov, director of Russian Ark and Father and Son. (Fully subtitled)”
