Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben -February 22, 2014

 



Aubrey Reuben




On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
February 22, 2014

02-17-14 Cast members (L-R) Emily Skeggs. Pearl Rhein at the opening night party for "Transport" at Jake's Saloon. 202 9th Ave. Sunday night. 02-16-14
 

 
On Broadway, The Bridges of Madison County, book by Marsha Norman, music & lyrics by Jason Robert Brown, based on the novel by Robert James Waller, is a musical about a farm wife (Kelli O'Hara), an Italian war bride, living in Iowa, in 1965. Married for twenty years, with two teenage children, she is left alone for four days, when her family attends a state fair. When a visiting photographer (Steven Pasquale) asks for directions to photograph a covered bridge, she decides to guide him. She makes him dinner that night and then spends four days falling in love with him. O'Hara sings beautifully and is a joy to behold. The rest of the cast, directed by Bartlett Sher, is fine, but do not contribute much to the romantic tale.

 
Off-Broadway, Transport, book by Thomas Keneally, music & lyrics by Larry Kirwan, is a musical about Irish women being deported to Australia in the nineteenth century for their crimes. A fine eight member cast act, sing and dance splendidly, under Tony Walton's expert direction. The music is pleasant, the lyrics intelligent and the story is engrossing. The Police Commissioner Bill Bratton and his wife Rikki Klieman attended the opening. The opening night party took place at Jake's Saloon.

 
Love and Information, by Caryl Churchill, is a two hour intermissionless play, consisting of almost 50 playlets, most about a minute or two, with 15 actors playing over a hundred roles. If this sounds confusing, or better yet exhausting, it is. Caryl Churchill is an acquired taste as a playwright. Having seen many of her plays, I have yet to acquire that taste. The opening night party took place at Amity Hall with guests like Sam Waterston, whose son James is one of the cast members.

 
I attended a Meet & Greet for The Realistic Joneses, by Will Eno, which will open on BroadwayApril 6. It has a terrific four member cast with Marisa Tomei, Toni Collette, Michael C. Hall and Tracy Letts, and I look forward eagerly to attend the opening.
 
Film Society of Lincoln Center is presenting press screenings of Rendezvous of French Cinema March 6-16. On My Way, by Emmanuelle Bercot, 2014, stars CatherineDeneuve as a middle-aged grandmother, a former beauty queen, now widowed, running a small restaurant in her home town. When she learns that her married lover has deserted her for a new, young 25-year-old girl, she is destroyed emotionally, and gets into her car to wander through the French countryside. Her adventures in this two hour road movie, in which she reconnects with her grandson, her estranged daughter and many other characters on the trip, is the theme of this excellent film. The photography is superb, and the viewer enjoys the sights of France from Brittany to the French Alps. Deneuve is simply magnificent, in this very honest, realistic film. 

 
Love is a Perfect Crime, by Arnaud and Jean-Marie Larrieu, France/Switzerland, 2013, has beautiful photography of the Alps, as Mathieu Amalric plays a professor, who attracts his female students sexually, as well as his incestuous sister, who shares his chalet. Trouble occurs when one sexy young student disappears, and the teacher becomes involved with her attractive stepmother. The story is quite unbelievable, but it is a pleasure to watch the beautiful scenery and the lovely young ladies.

 
If You Don't, I Will, (Arrete ou Je Continue), by Sophie Fillieres, France, 2014, also stars Mathieu Amalric as a husband, whose relationship with his wife (Emmanuelle Devos) is deteriorating rapidly. It reaches a climax on a weekend hike, when she decides to remain in the forest, instead of returning home with her husband. Again the story is far-fetched, but the irritation between the couple is realistic, and one can understand the outcome.

Age of Panic (La Bataille de Solferino), by Justine Triet, France, 2013, is about a divorced TV reporter (Laetitia Dorsch), with two very young daughters, who has to cover the 2012 Presidential Election day in France. She hires a babysitter, whose troubles begin when the father tries to see his daughters against the mother's wishes. It combines a documentary style of the crowded streets of Paris against a difficult family problem. The acting is first rate and convincing.

 
Grand Central, by Rebecca Zlotowski, France/Austria, 2013, takes place in a dangerous Nuclear Plant, where workers risk contamination. A love affair develops between a new worker and the girlfriend of one of the other workers. Unfortunately, the three main characters have little charisma or chemistry with one another, and watching scenes in a nuclear plant is quite depressing, as is the film.

 
Going Away (Un Beau Dimanche), by Nicole Garcia, France, 2013, is about a substitute teacher, on a three day holiday weekend, who suddenly finds himself involved with one of his students and his mother. As their relationship develops, we learn their histories, which are quite unbelievable. If you suspend critical judgment, you will find the film quite enjoyable.

 
Young & Beautiful (Jeune et Jolie), by Francois Ozon, France, 2013, is, without doubt, the finest film of the series up to now. A 17-year-old (a remarkable Marine Vacth) discovers herself, working as prostitute for a year. The effect on her family, friends and clients is revealed in this intelligent, truthful, brilliantly acted film by every actor. It is one of the finest films that I have seen in ages, and I heartily recommend it. It is a memorable cinematic experience.

 
2 Autumns, 3 Winters (2 Automnes, 3 Hivers), by Sebastien Betbeder, France, 2013, is an irritating film, about two uninteresting young people, who meet while jogging and fall in love. The two, played by Vincent Macaigne, who never seems to comb his hair, and a constantly glum Maud Wyler, talk to us in the camera like talking heads. What they say is banal, and they are an extremely dull couple to spend 90 excruciating minutes with.

 
Miss and the Doctors (Tirez la Langue, Mademoiselle) by Axelle Ropert, France, 2013, is a film about two doctors, who are brothers, who work in a sleazy working class area in Paris. One is an alcoholic, and the other has a perpetual sour facial expression. They both, unbelievably, fall in love with a single mother of a diabetic daughter, who is their patient. The film is as boring as the lives of the two doctors.

 
Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me, by Chiemi Karasawa, USA, 2013, is a documentary about the esteemed actress, as she she celebrates her 87th birthday, after six decades in the theatre, and on film and television. The filmmaker spent more than a year following Stritch, at her home in the Hotel Carlyle, performing in cabaret, with friends, and frank scenes of her visits to the hospital, suffering from diabetes. It is an openly honest view of a feisty personality, always expressing what's on her mind, and is quite funny. In the twilight of her career, she received a well deserved Tony and an Emmy Award for her one woman show. A fitting conclusion to a memorable life in the theatre.
