Lives of Others

12:10, 2:35, 3:10, 5:35, 6:05, 8:30, 9:00, 11:25

In German with English subtitles. Academy Award Winner Best Foreign Language Film. "The Lives of Others" begins in East Berlin in 1984, five years before Glasnost and the fall of the Berlin Wall, and takes us to 1991, in what is now the reunited Germany. It traces the gradual disillusionment of Captain Gerd Wiesler, a highly skilled officer who works for East Germany's all-powerful secret police. His mission is to spy on a celebrated writer and actress couple, Georg Dreyman and Christa-Maria Sieland. While Dreyman is away from home, his apartment is systematically bugged. Wiesler sets up his surveillance headquarters in the attic of Dreyman's apartment building, thus beginning Wiesler's cold and calculating observation of the lives of the playwright and his girlfriend. But Wiesler's unemotional fa&

231;ade eventually shows signs of erosion. In observing the day-to-day life of Dreyman and Christa-Maria, he begins to be drawn into their world. His immersion in "the lives of others," in love, literature and freethinking, also makes Wiesler acutely aware of the shortfalls of his own existence.

3 Academy Award Nominations including Best Adapted Screenplay, Actress (Kate Winslet), Supporting Actor (Jackie Earle Haley). Oscar-nominated filmmaker Todd Field teams with novelist Tom Perrotta to adapt Perrotta's acclaimed novel concerning the suburban malaise experienced by a handful of small-town individuals whose intersecting lives converge in a variety of surprising, and sometimes ominous, ways. Sarah is a suburban outsider who, unlike the other playground moms, isn't afraid to approach the dreamy but long-absent father whom smitten housewives have taken to calling the "Prom King." An English literature major who never envisioned a fate as a soccer mom, Sarah has a growing dissatisfaction with her successful husband that parallels Brad's increasing frustration with his inability to pass the bar and connect with his wife, a successful documentary filmmaker. Meanwhile, the community is riled by the return of a convicted sex offender. Directed by Todd Field ("In the Bedroom") Kate Winslet, Jennifer Connelly, Patrick Wilson, Noah Emmerich, Jackie Earle Haley, Gregg Edelman, Sarah Buxton
