Film Series: Design for Living

1933. USA. Dir: Ernst Lubitsch. With Miriam Hopkins, Gary Cooper. 91 min.


When two struggling artists find that they’re having an affair with the same woman, the woman proposes: why not share? This refined yet obscene sex comedy employs Lubitsch’s signature wit to poke fun at dating norms and the vanity of jealous men, presenting a “Pre-Code” vision of romance more progressive than most rom-coms today. Intro by Prof. Michael Slowik, CFILM.

2000. Taiwan/Hong Kong/USA/China. Dir: Ang Lee. With Chow Yun-Fat, Michelle Yeoh. 120 min.


A famed Wudang fighter loses his sword to his archrival and her masked protege?, sparking a cross-country vengeance trek alongside his longtime secret love. Lee’s melding of epic drama with gleeful martial arts choreography will have you jumping amongst the trees for joy.

Yay Bikes! But Why?

Sometime just after midnight on Wednesday, April 11th, a flock of yellow Penske trucks made their way onto a quiet and peaceful Wesleyan. In the frigid night, illuminated by nothing more than the orange glow of nearby streetlights, they began unloading their cargo: 100 orange bikes to be dispensed on bike racks around the campus.

Film Series: Water Lilies

2007. France. Dir: Ce?line Sciamma. With Pauline Acquart, Louise Blache?re, Ade?le Haenel. 85 min.
