Robert Redford stars in writer/director JC Chandor's All is Lost. (Roadside Attractions)
-- Oscar contenders like JC Chandor's "All is Lost," starring Robert Redford as a man lost at sea, and Nicole Holofcener's "Enough Said," pairing Julia Louis-Dreyfus and the late James Gandolfini, lead the way in this year's Bama Art House winter film series.
A slate of lesser-known but promising domestic indies and some foreign titles populate the rest of what looks like another strong series from the folks at the Tuscaloosa Arts Council.
"All is Lost" and "Enough Said" never made it to the Cobb Hollywood 16 (Tuscaloosa's only multiplex), so thanks to this series, we'll be clued in if Redford and Gandolfini score nominations come Oscar night.
The films in the Bama Art House Winter Film Series 2014 will begin on Jan. 14 (with "All is Lost") and will feature eight screenings total. As usual, screenings will take place on Tuesday nights at 7:30 p.m. with the box office opening at 6:30 p.m. and doors at 6:45 p.m.
Discount punch-card tickets () will be available at the door prior to screenings and will be good for any of the Bama Art House films. Single tickets will be priced at general, seniors students and Arts Council members. Patrons can visit to view the list of films, details and accompanying trailers.
"Kill Your Darlings," starring Daniel Radcliffe, will be sponsored by the University of Alabama's Department of Creative Writing. "A Touch of Sin" and "Wadjda" will be sponsored by The Left Hand Soap Company.
