PROMISE AT DAWN film still

Charlotte Gainsbourg and Pierre Niney (Frantz) star in this rousing, opulent adaptation of French writer Romain Gary’s autobiographical novel. Gary (1914-80) lived an extraordinary life. He was a decorated military officer and two time winner of the Prix Goncourt (France’s highest literary award) as well as the director of two movies starring his wife Jean Seberg. Eric Barbier’s sweeping film, which encompasses Gary’s childhood in Poland, his years as a student in Paris, and his training as a pilot during WWII, depicts a man driven to greatness while also seeking maternal approval. Cleveland premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 131 min.

Special event pricing $12; members, CIA & CSU I.D. holders, and those age 25 & under $9. No passes, twofers, or radio winners.
