POLINA OPENING AT THE CINEMA ART THEATER
Starting on October 13th, the Rehoboth Beach Film Society’s Cinema Art Theater will present POLINA, a drama about a young woman’s search for meaning through her art.
Rigorously trained from an early age by a perfectionist instructor, Polina is a promising classical ballet dancer. She is just about to join the prestigious Bolshoi Ballet when she discovers contemporary dance, a revelation that throws everything into question on a profound level. Diverting from her plan, she leaves all her exacting preparation behind and moves to France to work with famous choreographer Liria Elsaj (played by Academy Award-winner Juliette Binoche). But once there she is quickly forced to grapple with the realization that determination and hard work don't always lead to success. [2017, France, Runtime: 108 minutes, Rated: NR].
“Stirringly cinematic”, Sheri Linden of “The Los Angeles Times” calls the film. Claudia Bauer of “The San Francisco Chronicle” says the filmmakers, “show how a feature film can depict a dancer’s — a human’s — journey toward authenticity with sophistication, artistry and love for the art form.”
Screening times are 4:00 pm and 7:00 pm on Friday (Oct 13), 7:00 pm on Saturday (Oct 14), 4:00 pm on Sunday (Oct 15), 7:00 pm on Monday (Oct 16) 4:00 pm and 7:00 pm on Wednesday (Oct 18), and 4:00 pm on Thursday (Oct 19).
