THE RULES OF THE GAME
Tuesday, December 31 and Wednesday, January 1
(1939, 35mm, 110m, French with English subtitles) dir Jean Renoir w/Nora Gregor, Marcel Dalio, Mila Parély. A scathing critique of bourgeois manners, The Rules of the Game was the costliest French film made up to that time. A critical and box office disaster when first released, it is now considered one of the finest films ever made. It’s also ideal for putting New Year’s parties into context.
