Synopsis (Focus Features)
"On the Basis of Sex is inspired by the true story of a young Ruth Bader Ginsburg – then a struggling attorney and new mother – who faces adversity and numerous obstacles in her fight for equal rights throughout her career. When Ruth takes on a groundbreaking tax case with her husband, attorney Martin Ginsburg, she knows it could change the direction of her career and the way the courts view gender discrimination. The film also chronicles the storybook-like romance between Ruth and Marty, a partnership that succeeded both personally and professionally." CLOSED CAPTION DEVICES AVAILABLE FOR THIS FILM.

Synopsis (Annapurna)
"Set in early-1970s Harlem, IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK is a timeless and moving love story of both a couple's unbreakable bond and the African-American family's empowering embrace, as told through the eyes of 19-year-old Tish Rivers (screen newcomer KiKi Layne). A daughter and wife-to-be, Tish vividly recalls the passion, respect and trust that have connected her and her artist fiancé Alonzo Hunt, who goes by the nickname Fonny (Stephan James). Friends since childhood, the devoted couple dream of a future together but their plans are derailed when Fonny is arrested for a crime he did not commit. Through the unique intimacy and power of cinema, IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK honors the author's prescient words and imagery, charting the emotional currents navigated in an unforgiving and racially biased world as the filmmaker poetically crosses time frames to show how love and humanity endure." Directed by Barry Jenkins (MOONLIGHT), and based on the novel by James Baldwin, this stunning film could be a big Oscar contender this year. CLOSED CAPTION DEVICES AVAILABLE FOR THIS FILM.

FIVE SEASONS: THE GARDENS OF PIET OUDOLF

Synopsis (Argot Pictures)
The Garden Club of Dayton is pleased to bring back FIVE SEASONS: THE GARDENS OF PIET OUDOLF on Sunday, Feb. 10 at 5:30. Because its initial screening last fall was sold out, many in the gardening community were not able to view this remarkable film, so it's being offered once more. All proceeds from ticket sales will support the many community projects of the Garden Club of Dayton. "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 will be our special guest at this screening and hold a short Q&A after the film. 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. Tickets are $10 each and available at our box office or via the "Tickets" Link on the top of this page.

Synopsis (Christian Gentry)
On Thursday, February 13 at 7:30, Dayton-based filmmaker Christian Gentry will host the premier of his latest short film. "THAT'S LIFE is a short film about an aging, out-of-touch musician who tries to save his dating life with a young woman he meets in the city. It stars local actors Vince Hobart Smith as the musician, Paul, as well as Maile Spencer, and previous Gentry-collaborator Erika Baxter. The film was written and directed by Christian Gentry, a local 18 year old filmmaker from Dayton. Christian took inspiration from the likes of Woody Allen and Noah Baumbach films for THAT'S LIFE, both using themes and style foreign to Gentry’s long run as a successful student artist. He has made several short films in the past three years, most recently writing the awarding-winning FINAL REBOOT, co-writing the film GOOD KIDS and writing/directing the short film REALITY, which won a Gold Key at the 2017 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. This one-time Dayton screening includes a presentation from the filmmakers as well as a Q/A with Christian and some of the cast and crew afterwards." Tickets are $7 and are available at THE NEON's box office and via the "Tickets" link above.
