We are planning on showing "THE WILD PEAR TREE" on Wed., Feb. 13 at 7pm.
We will update this space if anything changes.
FIVE STARS!  A gentle, humane, beautifully made and magnificently acted movie from the Turkish film-maker Nuri Bilge Ceylan. It’s an unhurried, elegiac address to the idea of childhood and your home town – and how returning to both has a bittersweet savour. As in his previous film, “Winter Sleep,” he draws on the spirit of Chekhov. But his style is all his own.

Sinan, an ambitious, malcontent young graduate and would-be writer (Aydın Doğu Demirkol), comes back to his rural village with a diploma but no job. Now he has to decide whether to take the exams to be a teacher like his old man. He senses defeat and disappointment with life in some of those local friends and family he has left behind – or is it that he has projected on to them his own dread of a failure yet to come? Has he misread their humility and acceptance and miscalculated the price he will have to pay for his yearned-for differentness from them, and for all that glamorous big-city success?

His father is Idris, tremendously played by Murat Cemcir, a man whose youthful charm and romanticism has curdled with age into a bluster and cajoling….

It is another deeply satisfying, intelligent piece of film-making from Ceylan. The indulgent Idris tells his son that he often has a wild pear for breakfast and it is delicious. This film is, too. --The Guardian
“The staggering emotional payoff — a transcendental moment so beautiful in its simplicity that the previous three hours of seriousness appear to melt away — is worth every last minute.”  The Film Stage
“Beautifully filmed in the golden glow of warm sunshine, ‘Wild Pear Tree’ is impeccably acted, and crammed with haunting images.” The List
Cast Dogu Demirkol, Murat Cemcir, Bennu Yildirimlar
