Woody Allen's New Film Comes to the Sunrise
Woody Allen is back -- and you can see his latest work, "Vicky Christina Barcelona," at the Sunrise Theater from Thursday, Nov. 13, through Sunday, Nov. 16. Thursday and Friday showings are at 7:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday add matinees at 2:30.
MSNBC critic, Alonso Duralde, says, "Vicky Christina Barcelona" is a glorious return to Woody Allen's writing and directing genius."
Woody Allen cleverly creates a tale of the conflicts between love and commitment and life with no moral absolutes, which sometimes overlap. Two friends, Vicky (Rebecca Hall) and Christina (Scarlett Johansson), vacation in Spain. Vicky is engaged to a very stable Wall Street drone. Christina might be called a "free spirit" and is immediately drawn to the artist, Juan Antonio (Javier Bardem) who invites them to visit his place in Oviedo to sightsee and stay in his home. His ex-wife Maria Elena (Penelope Cruz) then enters the mix. They are passionately in love, but unfortunately that passion too often erupts in violence. The interaction between these two actors is fireworks!
"Vicky Christina Barcelona" has already been nominated for a Gotham Independent Film Award for best ensemble performance, and Rebecca Hall has been nominated for Best Breakthrough actor.
Well-known film critic Roger Ebert says, "The actors are attractive, the city is magnificent, the love scenes don't get all sweaty, and everybody finishes the summer a little wiser and with a lifetime of memories. What more could you ask?"
The film is rated PG 13 and runs 1 hour, 37 minutes. Adult evenings tickets are $7, and matinees are $6. Tickets for children under 12 are always $5.
The historic Sunrise Theater is a nonprofit organization. The theater is at 250 NW Broad Street, Southern Pines.
