We kick our Cambridge opening night off with Emerson College alum Eldar Rapaport’s stunning drama AUGUST. Rapaport’s first feature film has been acclaimed by festivals all over the world. We are proud to celebrate our fourth year in Harvard Square with the area premiere of this beautiful film.
Join us after the screening next door at Casablanca’s restaurant for the opening reception.
Directed by Eldar Rappaport. 2011, USA, 105 min.
When Troy (Murray Bartlett) returns to Los Angeles after a multiyear foray in Barcelona, he contacts Jonathan (Daniel Dugan), the object of his desire during a short-lived, intense summer fling five years earlier. Their still-smoldering connection is obvious from the first, but Jonathan tries to fight his desires, while his live-in boyfriend Raoul (Adrian Gonzalez) considers the situation with a hands-off approach. Meanwhile, Troy’s inability to make a commitment one way or the other complicates matters.
Lovingly shot and languidly told, AUGUST uses the perspectives of all three men and a muddled timeline to tell their stories, successfully mixing Rashomon with a dash of Memento to give a unique twist to the romantic-triangle genre. (Description courtesy of Seattle International Film Festival.)
