The Pianist

Saturday, June 1  11am (Earlier-Than-Usual)

Compared to some of Roman Polanski’s true masterworks, The Pianist is unflashy, almost workmanlike in its filmmaking. The better to bear witness, perhaps, to the incredible true story of Wƚadysƚaw Szpilman (Adrien Brody), a Polish Jew during World War II who survived the Nazi invasion, the liquidation of the ghetto, and the final days before liberation without ever leaving Warsaw. -Lee Gardner

2002 Dir. Roman Polanski. 1.85:1 Color DCP 150 min.
