After her husband, Ambassador Joseph Wilson (Sean Penn), writes op-ed columns accusing the Bush administration of misleading the public to justify invading Iraq, Valerie Plame Wilson’s (Naomi Watts) status as a covert CIA agent is leaked by administration officials. A powerful, fact-based drama focusing on the effects of the fall-out on the Wilsons’ marriage, with a compelling script and first-rate acting by Watts and Penn. (2010), PG-13, 108 minutes.

August 11, 2:00 and 7:00 pm CAN YOU EVER FORGIVE ME?

In this fact-based drama, Lee Isreal (Melissa MacCarthy) is a best-selling celebrity biographer who makes her living in the 1970s and 80s profiling the likes of Katharine Hepburn, Tallulah Bankhead and Estee Lauder. But when Lee finds herself unable to get published as reading tastes shifts, she turns to deception, abetted by her loyal friend Jack (Richard E. Grant.) Superb performances by MacCarthy and Grant. The film garnered over ninety awards, including Best Actress and Best Supporting Actor Oscar nominations. (2018), R (language), 106 minutes.

August 18, 2:00 and 7:00 pm STAN AND OLLIE

With their glory days as Hollywood’s premier comedy team long behind them, Stan Laurel (Steve Coogan) and Oliver Hardy (John C. Reilly) begin a grueling farewell tour of England and Ireland, reminding audiences – and themselves – of the magic of their partnership. A touching and sweet tribute to the two comedians who remained old friends through the good and bad times of their careers. Brilliantly acted by Coogan and Reilly, the film strikes just the right balance between comedy and effective drama. (2019), PG-13, 98 minutes.
