20th Century Women, screening on March 8th, is the Oscar Nominee for Best Original Screenplay. Featuring a star studded cast, it shares the story of three women who explore love and freedom in Southern California during the Late 1970s. A Santa Barbara single mom and boardinghouse landlord (Annette Bening) decides the best way she can parent her teenage son is to enlist her young tenants – a quirky punk photographer (Greta Gerwig), a mellow handyman and her son’s shrewd best friend (Elle Fanning) – to serve as role models in a changing world.
On March 28th 19 on the Park will screen the fictional comedic-thriller Operation Avalanche. In 1967 during the height of the Cold War, two young CIA agents go undercover at NASA to investigate a possible Russian mole. Disguised as documentary filmmakers, they tap phones and break into offices while claiming to learn more about the Apollo project. But when they end up uncovering a shocking NASA secret – and a major government cover-up – they decide to embark on a new mission that may be the most dangerous of their lives.
