Synopsis (Magnolia Pictures)
"Lauren Greenfield’s postcard from the edge of the American Empire captures a portrait of a materialistic, image-obsessed culture. Simultaneously photographic journey, memoir, and historical essay, the film bears witness to the global boom–bust economy, the corrupted American Dream and the human costs of late stage capitalism, narcissism and greed."

Synopsis (Focus Features)
"For over thirty years, Fred Rogers, an unassuming minister, puppeteer, writer and producer was beamed daily into homes across America. In his beloved television program, Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, Fred and his cast of puppets and friends spoke directly to young children about some of life's weightiest issues, in a simple, direct fashion. There hadn't been anything like Mr. Rogers on television before and there hasn't been since. Though he may be best known today as a soft-spoken, cardigan-wearing children's television host, in reality, Fred Rogers' career represents a sustained attempt to present a coherent, beneficent view about how we should best speak to children about important matters and how television could be used as a positive force in our society."

FIVE SEASONS: THE GARDENS OF PIET OUDOLF

Synopsis (Five Seasons Media LLC)
On Sunday, August 26 at 3:00, we will bring a special one-time screening to town. "After completing a feature documentary on New York’s High Line, award-winning filmmaker Thomas Piper met the inspirational designer and plantsman, Piet Oudolf, and the idea for a new project was born. The documentary, FIVE SEASONS: THE GARDENS OF PIET OUDOLF, immerses viewers in Oudolf’s work and takes us inside his creative process, from his beautifully abstract sketches, to theories on beauty, to the ecological implications of his ideas. Intimate discussions take place through all fours seasons in Piet’s own gardens at Hummelo, and on visits to his signature public works in New York, Chicago, and the Netherlands, as well as to the far-flung locations that inspire his genius, including desert wildflowers in West Texas and post-industrial forests in Pennsylvania." Oakwood resident Jennifer Davit previously served as Director of the Lurie Garden in Chicago, which was Piet Oudolf's first landscape commission in the US, and she also contributed to the creation of this film with director Tom Piper. She will be our special guest at this screening and hold a short Q&A after the film. Tickets for this one time screening are $8 and are now available at THE NEON's box office.

Synopsis (CineLife Entertainment)
THE NEON will continue the "Great Stage On Screen" Series with The Royal Shakespeare Company's triumphant production of Shakespeare's KING LEAR - which captures a tour de force performance by Ian McKellen in the title role. The film also features Frances Barber, Romola Garai and Monica Dolan. The play is among the Bard's greatest, a tragedy about an old king who thinks he can buy the affection of his daughters, only to find that this is far from the case, with terrible consequences. This production was reviewed as the greatest version of the play for a generation, and has yet to be equaled in its powerful acting, masterful stage directing, and sympathetic capture on film. Tickets are $15 each and are on sale now at THE NEON's Box Office. (And save te date for ELAINE STRITCH AT LIBERTY - slated to screen on Oct. 24.)
