THE OTHERS– Alejandro Amenabar (2001)
Tuesday, January 29 from 5:30- 8pm
The film maker sends his camera down shadowy corridors and into cavernous rooms to
create a mood of elegant dread. It is persuasively spooky, and even manages to be
poignant, thanks to a fierce performance by Nicole Kidman. She plays a woman living
with her two children and three peculiar servants in a fog-shrouded house on the island
of Jersey, in the English Channel. USA 104 min.
REPULSION- Roman Polanski (1965)
Tuesday, February 5 from 5:30 - 8pm
In Roman Polanski's first English-language film, beautiful young manicurist Carole
(Catherine Deneuve) suffers from fear of men. When her sister and roommate, Helen ,
leaves their London flat to go on an Italian holiday with her married boyfriend, Carole
withdraws into her apartment. She begins to experience frightful hallucinations, her fear
gradually mutating into madness. Great Britain 95min.
THE CONVERSATION-Francis Ford Coppola (1974)
Tuesday, February 12 from 5:30 - 8pm
A paranoid and secretive surveillance expert has a crisis of conscience when he
suspects that a couple he is spying on will be murdered. Outstanding performance
by Gene Hackman. USA 113min.
The OTHER-Robert Mulligan (1972)
Tuesday, February 19 from 5:30– 8pm
In the summer of 1935, 12-year-old twins Niles and Holland Perry live with their family on a
