Django (NR) Genre: Drama Runtime: 01:57

In French with English subtitles - Not Rated. The year is 1943 in Nazi-occupied Paris and Django Reinhardt is at the pinnacle of his art. Thrilling audiences with his distinctive brand of “hot jazz,” the brilliant and carefree jazz guitarist plays to standing-room-only crowds in Paris's greatest venues. Meanwhile his gypsy brethren are being persecuted throughout Europe. His life takes a turn for the worse when the Nazi propaganda machine wants to send him on tour in Germany.Reinhardt, elegantly interpreted by RedaKateb, is forced to make a daring escape from Paris. Like a celebrity declining to play at President Trump’s inauguration, he slips away into hiding instead of agreeing to perform the propaganda concerts expected of him. Yethe refuses to be silenced, and his music becomes a form of protest. Kateb’s impressive performance is sure to please all fans of the renowned jazz musician and keep audiences on their tapping toes. “The movie maintains a sense of Reinhardt's persona along with his incredible musical abilities, especially in a trio of concert scenes that highlight each act.” –Jordan Mintzer, Hollywood Reporter

Faces, Places (Visages, villages) (PG) Genre: Documentary Runtime: 01:30

On Nov. 11, French filmmaker Agnes Varda was awarded the Governors Award, one of the highest honors presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. This Honorary Oscar was given to her in recognition of her long and rich contribution to the movie industry. This year marks the first time that a female director has won this award. In her new movie Faces Places, Varda, who is 89, teams up with JR, a 34-year-old photographer and visual artist to chronicle French rural life. When Varda and JR met in 2015, they immediately wanted to work together, to shoot a film in France, far from cities, during a trip in JR's photographic (and magical) truck. This film also tells the story of Varda’s and JR's friendship, which grew stronger throughout the film shoot, between surprises and teasing, and while laughing about their differences. “Four Stars! Highest Rating! Sheer perfection. It isn’t like any movie you’ve ever seen. French New Wave veteran Agnes Varda and the young photographer JR leap fearlessly into the art of making art in the year's best and most beguiling doc.” –Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

The Divine Order (Die gottliche Ordnu... (NR) Genre: Drama Runtime: 01:36

In Swiss-German with English subtitles. Winner of the Audience Award for Best Film at the Tribeca Film Festival and Switzerland’s official Oscar submission for Best Foreign-Language Film, The Divine Order is set in Switzerland in 1971 where, despite the worldwide social upheavals of the previous decade, women were still denied the right to vote. When unassuming and dutiful housewife Nora (Marie Leuenberger, winner of a Best Actress award at Tribeca) is forbidden by her husband to take a part-time job, her frustration leads to her becoming the poster child of her town’s suffragette movement. Her newfound celebrity brings humiliation, threats, and the potential end to her marriage, but, refusing to back down, she convinces the women in her village to go on strike...and makes a few startling discoveries about her own liberation. “A conventional but exceptionally warm crowd-pleaser of a movie, mostly thanks to Leuenberger's performance.” –Glenn Kenny, RogerEbert.com
