DuVernay’s powerful film, fueled by a gripping performance by David Oyelowo, is a deeply moving reminder of what Dr. King and his allies did for this country… and how much is left to be done.
SELMA is the story of a movement. The film focusses on the tumultuous three-month period in 1965, when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. led a dangerous campaign to secure equal voting rights in the face of violent opposition. The epic march from Selma to Montgomery culminated in President Johnson (Tom Wilkinson) signing the Voting Rights Act of 1965, one of the most significant victories for the civil rights movement. Director Ava DuVernay’s SELMA tells the real story of how the revered leader and visionary Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (David Oyelowo) and his brothers and sisters in the movement prompted change that forever altered history.(C) Paramount

“I have rarely seen a historical film that felt so populous and full of life, so alert to the tendrils of narrative that spread beyond the frame.”

Based on a best-seller by Lisa Genova and featuring a Golden Globe-winning performance from Julianne Moore, STILL ALICE is a searing, unsparing, portrayal of a professor brought down in mid-career by Early Onset Alzheimer’s.
Alice Howland, happily married to her husband John (Alec Baldwin) and mother to three grown children (Kristen Stewart, Kate Bosworth, and Hunter Parrish), is a renowned linguistics professor who starts to forget words. When she receives a diagnosis of Early-Onset Alzheimer’s Disease, Alice and her family find their bonds thoroughly tested as she struggles to stay connected to who she once was. A tough-minded look at a difficult disease, STILL ALICE is at once heartbreaking and inspiring, as powerful as it is crushing.

At Saturday’s 4:30 screening, representatives from the Alzheimer’s Association – Hudson Valley Chapter will speak about Alzheimer’s disease and the organization, which provides support and assistance to our communities. Its mission is to eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.
