  ONEGIN  11/8   7PM     11/18   12pm

Timofey Kulyabin’s Golden Mask Award winning Onegin removes all expectations of Pushkin’s novel in verse and places you not in some historical epoch, but in today’s world, immersed in the inner thoughts, hopes, despairs, passions and disappointments
that drift in, through and around the 4 central figures, Onegin, Tatiana, Olga and Lensky. There are no grand balls, no fans, no lorgnettes, no Encyclopedia of Russian life. Just a quiet love story that perfectly conveys the attitude of the great poet and how very much his masterwork still resonates with our 21st century reality.  Presented in Russian w/ English subtitles.  2hrs 40 mins

SMILE UPON US, LORD   2/7  7pm  2/17  12pm

Rimas Tuminas’ adaptation of two novels by fellow Lithuanian, Grigory Kanovich, is a dreamy, ruminative, comedic road trip, centering around the parlous fortunes of Eastern European Jews at the start of the 20th century. A period piece that carries a modern conscious, Smile Upon Us, is a Becket-like “Waiting for Jehovah” that has garneredrave reviews during its recent runs in both London and New York, and promises to be just as memorable on the big screen. Featuring three towering figures from the Russian stage, Viktor Sukhorukov, Aleksei Guskov and Vladimir Simonov.  Presented in Russian w/ English subtitles.  3hrs
