Event Details

This month’s film is “Moliere”, France, 2007.

Moliere is a down-and-out actor and playwright who is up to his ears in debt. The wealthy Jourdain offers to cover that debt so that Molière’s theatrical talents might help Jourdain win the heart of a certain widowed marquise. Disguised as a priest, Molière becomes a guest in Jourdain’s palace on the subtext of teaching Jourdain the craft of the stage, all this to the annoyance of Jourdain’s wife, Elmire. But, soon after, the confrontation between Elmire and Molière turns seductive. Jourdain enlists the aid of a well-connected and scheming acquaintance to help him pursue the widowed marquise. Join us for screenings of a variety of films from around the world. All movies have English subtitles. Screenings will begin at 2:00 p.m.
