I, Tonya

  • 250 West Preston Street Mount Pleasant, MI, 48858 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Director: Craig Gillespie

Starring: Margot Robbie, Allison Janney, Sebastian Stan

Rating: R Runtime: 119 min

Based on the unbelievable, but true events, I, TONYA is a darkly comedic tale of American figure skater, Tonya Harding, and one of the most sensational scandals in sports history. Though Harding was the first American woman to complete a triple axel in competition, her legacy was forever defined by her association with an infamous, ill-conceived, and even more poorly executed attack on fellow Olympic competitor Nancy Kerrigan. Featuring an iconic turn by Margot Robbie as the fiery Harding, a mustachioed Sebastian Stan as her impetuous ex-husband Jeff Gillooly, and a tour-de-force performance from Allison Janney as her acid-tongued mother, LaVona Golden, Craig Gillespie’s I, TONYA is an absurd, irreverent, and piercing portrayal of Harding’s life and career in all of its unchecked––and checkered––glory. Allison Janney won the Best Supporting Actress Golden Globe, SAG Award and Critic’s Choice Award, and she is nominated for an Oscar in the same category. Margot Robbie is also nominated for the Best Actress Oscar for her turn as the title character.

Nor Any Drop To Drink

Director: Cedric Taylor

Rating: NR Runtime: 124 minutes

The documentary Nor Any Drop to Drink focuses on the ongoing water crisis in Flint, Michigan. In 2014, in order to save money, the state switched Flint’s water supply to the heavily polluted Flint River as a cost saving measure. Almost immediately, residents complained of rashes, hair and tooth loss and expressed concerns about Legionnaire’s disease, miscarriage and childhood development. Belatedly, officials admitted that the water was contaminated. Both Michigan and the federal government declared a state of emergency. In 2016, the public was inundated with images of children being tested for lead, protests, and crowded water distribution sites. Today, Flint has largely dropped out of national headlines. However, the horrors faced by many residents still remain. Punctuated by the experiences of ordinary residents, Nor Any Drop to Drink sheds light on how failure of government, declining infrastructure, economic policy and structural racism created the Flint water crisis. The continuing struggles of residents are also highlighted. Nor Any Drop to Drink seeks to better understand why today, in Flint, a city in the Great Lakes State, there is neither trust in governmental institutions…nor any drop to drink.

A question and answer session with the filmmakers will follow the film.

  • Google Calendar ICS

Director: Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman

Starring: Robert Gulaczyk, Douglas Booth, Helen McCrory, Saoirse Ronan, Chris O’Dowd

Rating: PG-13 Runtime: 95 min

Loving Vincent brings the paintings of Vincent Van Gogh to life to tell his remarkable story. Every one of the 65,000 frames of the film is an oil painting, hand-painted by 125 professional oil painters who traveled across the world to the Loving Vincent studios in Poland and Greece to be a part of the production. As remarkable as Vincent's brilliant paintings are his passionate and ill-fated life, and mysterious death. Loving Vincent was first shot as a live action film with actors, and then hand-painted over frame-by-frame in oils. The final effect is the interaction of the performance of the actors playing Vincent's famous portraits, and the performance of the painting animators, bringing these characters into the medium of paint. Loving Vincent is nominated for an Oscar for Best Animated Feature.
