This Week At The Cinema: Wall Street Drama, Love On The Rocks, and David Hockney

Posted By on Tue, Jan 23, 2018 at 11:33 AM

It's officially awards season, which means there's plenty of good stuff at the movie theaters this week, such as Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri; The Shape Of Water; The Disaster Artist; and Phantom Thread, which I will be reviewing in this week's Flyer. But dig down in the schedule and you'll find some remarkable gems.

Indie Memphis' newly expanded weekly film series presents two encore screenings from the festival. The first, screening on Tuesday at Studio On The Square, is The Price, a drama about a Nigerian immigrant who scores a job on Wall Street that turns out to be a mixed blessing.

The second is Wilderness, a love story about racism, jealousy, and jazz, directed by frequent Indie Memphis juror Justin Doherty.

Then, at 1 PM on Sunday at the Paradiso, Exhibitions on Screen presents David Hockney At The Royal Academy Of Arts, a documentary following the renown British artist as he prepares for two blockbuster art exhibitions in London.

See you at the movies!
