Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Jan 13th at 6:50 pm for Youth Without Youth at the Landmark E Street Cinema . Look for Brian wearing a Green Bay Packers t-shirt in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
Master filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola’s first feature in a decade is a poignant love story, political thriller and lively philosophical quest, filled with stunning images. Tim Roth plays an aging professor of linguistics who finds his youth miraculously restored after surviving a cataclysmic event. Pursued by Nazi scientists he goes on the run, reunites with his lost love (Alexandra Maria Lara), and struggles to complete his lifework of research. The screenplay, which Coppola adapted from a novella by Mircea Eliade, deals with perception and consciousness, time and memory. Says the director: “[It’s] the kind of movie I like to make: one that gives more as people give more of themselves to it.”
