In French with English subtitles
Switzerland's official entry for this year's foreign language film Oscar is one of the most acclaimed movies of 2012, with an overall metacritic.com rating of 81 (out of 100). It's a haunting "up-mountain, down-mountain" drama about a 12-year-old boy who steals from wealthy guests at an Alpine ski resort in order to support his desperate, down-and-out older sister (Léa Seydoux of Midnight in Paris, Farewell, My Queen) who lives in a decrepit apartment in the valley below. With Gillian Anderson. Cleveland premiere. www.adoptfilms.com
The film will show at 4:30pm on Sunday, February 24, and is open to both partygoers and the general public. Regular Cinematheque admission prices will apply for those who want to see only the film: $9; Cinematheque members $7; age 25 & under $6.
