EAMES: THE ARCHITECT & THE PAINTER

Trailer:  http://www.metacritic.com/movie/eames-the-architect-the-painter

The husband-and-wife team of Charles and Ray Eames are widely regarded as one of America’s most important designers. Perhaps best remembered for their mid-century plywood and fiberglass furniture, the Eames Office also created a mind-bending variety of other products, from splints for wounded military during World War II, to photography, interiors, multi-media exhibits, graphics, games, films and toys. Their personal lives and influence on significant events in American life – from the development of modernism, to the rise of the computer age – is explored further in this documentary narrated by James Franco.

105 minutes / Rated R for language

Trailer:  http://www.metacritic.com/movie/billy-elliot

Coming of age dance/drama of 11-year-old Billy Elliot, who lives in a rough coal-mining village in Britain during the 1980’s when Margaret Thatcher was shutting down the mines, who trades his boxing lessons for ballet lessons unbeknownst to his father and older brother.  Will they allow Billy to pursue his dream?  As howlingly funny as it is touching, this one may well have us dancing during the post-film discussion.  Directed by Stephen Daldry and co-starring Julie Walters, this was actor Jamie Bell’s cinematic debut.
