Sunset Boulevard

Thursday, June 8
English spoken with Dutch subtitles.

A bankrupt screenwriter, desperate for his big break, and a forgotten filmstar, hoping to make one last comeback: the ideal partnership, right? Not in this classic film noir from acclaimed director Billy Wilder! A highlight of the American film canon which exposes just about every low point of the American film industry.

Mes frères et moi

Friday, June 9
French spoken with English subtitles.

Nour has a tough time at home with a critically ill mom and three older brothers who just won’t leave him alone, especially when Nour declares that he’d rather spend his free time on opera singing lessons than a part-time job. A refreshing portrait of family, tragedy and ambition in French suburbs with a stand-out young lead.

Promising Young Woman

Saturday, June 10
English spoken with Dutch subtitles.

Cassie, pushing 30 and severely traumatized, finds a unique way to deal with painful events from her past. Previously shown during a time of covid measures at the 14 1/2th edition of LIFF, this Oscar-winning debut of Emerald Fennel (Killing Eve) deserves a rematch with audience at full capacity!
