Flick Picks 5/28/13: New Episodes of George Gently, Doctor Who, and more

New This Week!

SERIES: There's one new series this week and it's a modern western crime drama from A&E. Longmire follows Wyoming sheriff Walt Longmire as he returns to work following the death of his wife. It's not long before he's embroiled in a number of crimes.

Fans of the Tardis and its famous navigator will be thrilled to know that this week brings us both Doctor Who Series Seven, Part Two and the Christmas episode The Snowmen. British Inspector George Gently returns for a fifth season and we also have new seasons of the CIA drama Covert Affairs as well as the legal comedy-drama Suits.

DOCUMENTARY: The Rolling Stones are in town so revisit their early years with the HBO documentary Rolling Stones: Crossfire Hurricane, which covers their history through the mid-1970s and brings in all current members and some former members as well.

SUBTITLED: Those of you interested in an unconventional Holocaust film should take home Lore, a German film that follows five German children of SS officers who must make a difficult journey across a devastated Germany to meet their grandmother following the end of the war. Along the way they are exposed to the consequences of their parents' actions.

You can always find our new and forthcoming releases on Bibliocommons.

Talking Pictures
This week Susan Benjamin brings us Kinky Boots, the comedic story of a drag queen who helps a man revitalize his father's failing shoe business. The movie screens at 1:00 on this Thursday, May 30 in the Hammond Room of the library.

Bicycling Movies

The Glencoe Grand Prix takes place on June 2nd and as in previous years it should be a blast! Why not take home one of these bicycle movies and keep the party going?

  • Breaking Away is the Academy Award winning of a bike team from a working class town in Indiana.
  • The thrill-a-minute Premium Rush is the tale of a New York City bike messenger who is pursued for the contents of the envelope that he has been tasked to deliver.
  • An animated bike-themed movie? Sure, why not? The gorgeous film Triplets of Belleville follows a woman who tries to rescue her Tour de France competing grandson who has been kidnapped by the French mafia.
  • The definition of Italian neorealism, The Bicycle Thief, follows a poor father in post World War II Italy who searches for his stolen bicycle that he needs in order to make a living.
