The Man Who Knew Infinity - Rated PG-13 - 108 Minutes

In the 1910s, Srinivasa Ramanujan is a man of boundless intelligence that even the abject poverty of his home in Madras, India cannot crush. Eventually, his stellar intelligence in mathematics and his boundless confidence in both attract the attention of the noted British mathematics professor, G.H. Hardy, who invites him to further develop his computations at Trinity College at Cambridge. Forced to leave his young wife, Janaki, behind, Ramanujan finds himself in a land where both his largely intuitive mathematical theories and his cultural values run headlong into both the stringent academic requirements of his school and mentor and the prejudiced realities of a Britain heading into World War One. Facing this with a family back home determined to keep him from his wife and his own declining health, Ramanujan joins with Hardy in a mutual struggle that would define Ramanujan as one of India's greatest modern scholars who broke more than one barrier in his worlds.

** AN EXCLUSIVE SHOWING **

No poster available

Peter and John - Rated NR - 110 Minutes

Join director Jay Craven at Peter and John Screening at Wilton Town Hall Theatre July 15th Jay Craven’s new seaside film drama, “Peter and John,” will play the Wilton Town Hall Theatre, starting with a special Friday, July 15th show where director Craven will introduce the film and lead a post-screening Q & A. Showtime is 7:30pm. The film will then begin a week long run of 7:30 shows in Wilton, with details at www.WiltonTownHallTheatre.com. “Peter and John” marks Craven’s eighth narrative film based in New England – and it was recently nominated for a 2016 New England Emmy. The director’s previous pictures include five collaborations with Vermont writer Howard Frank Mosher, among them “Northern Borders,” with Bruce Dern and Genevieve Bujold, “Disappearances,” with Kris Kristofferson, and “Where the Rivers Flow North” with Rip Torn, Tantoo Cardinal, and Michael J. Fox. “Peter and John” is based on the 19th century novel “Pierre et Jean” by Guy de Maupassant and it’s set in 1872 Nantucket, during the island’s “ghost period”— after the decline of whaling, before the rise of tourism, and in the New England shadow of the Civil War. The film tells the story of two brothers whose relationship strains when the younger one receives news of an unexpected inheritance—and both brothers become attracted to the same young woman who arrives on their island. Maupassant’s novel was widely credited for helping to change the course of narrative fiction through its detailed psychological characterizations. Tolstoy and Nabokov both cited the novel as an influence. In a letter to his brother Theo, Vincent Van Gogh cited Maupassant for the visual power of the novel’s detailed seaside setting. Henry James wrote, “Monsieur de Maupassant has never before been so clever” and he called Pierre et Jean a “masterly little novel” for its potent themes of family, status, self-discovery and the lengths to which someone will go to reveal or suppress the truth. A film trailer can be seen at: https://vimeo.com/116906319 “Peter and John” stars 2014 Golden Globe winner Jacqueline Bisset (“Bullitt,” Truffaut’s “Day for Night”); Christian Coulson (“The Hours,” “Harry Potter: Chamber of Secrets”); Shane Patrick Kearns (“Blue Collar Boys”); Diane Guerrero (“Orange is the New Black,” “Jane the Virgin”); and Gordon Clapp (“Matewan,” “Eight Men Out,” “Glengarry Glen Ross”). “Peter and John” was shot on Nantucket and it was produced through the Movies From Marlboro (MfM) program, a biennial film intensive semester jointly produced by Marlboro College and Kingdom County Productions. For this ambitious production, 22 filmmaking professionals mentored and collaborated with 32 students from 12 colleges (Wellesley, Mount Holyoke, Boston College, University of Vermont, Lyndon State College, Dartmouth, Smith, Sarah Lawrence, Emerson, Antioch, London School of the Arts, and Marlboro). A 2016 Movies from Marlboro production, “Wetware,” has recently concluded principal photography (info at Movies.Marlboro.edu). Jay Craven’s seven feature films have played 58 countries and 73 festivals, including Sundance—with special screenings at The Smithsonian, Lincoln Center, Le Cinémathèque Française, the Constitutional Court of Johannesburg, and others. Craven’s commitment to New England place-based filmmaking was recently profiled by Orion Magazine that wrote: “Jay Craven has come closer than any other filmmaker to realizing (American poet, essayist, and film theorist) Vachel Lindsay’s dream of a vital regional cinema that embodies the character and genius of a place in all its mystery, magnificence, and pain.”
