Burt's Buzz – Thursday, April 3
Director Jody Shapiro ventures into the backwoods of Maine to find the reclusive Burt Shavitz, founder and (bearded) face of the all-natural personal care brand Burt's Bees, in this wry, thoughtful and intimate portrait of a highly idiosyncratic pioneer. From Burt’s early years as a gifted photo journalist, to his solitary life as a beekeeper, and then status as a global brand ambassador, the film is a fascinating study of one man’s ability to remain true to himself despite the pressures of a larger, influential world around him.
Unfinished Song – Thursday, April 17
Unfinished Song is the funny and uplifting story of Arthur (Terence Stamp), a curmudgeon old soul perfectly content with sticking to his dull daily routine until his beloved wife (Vanessa Redgrave) introduces him to a spirited local singing group led by the youthful and charming Elizabeth (Gemma Arterton). This unexpected friendship and his discovery of music revitalizes Arthur's passion for new adventures and shows us all life should be celebrated at any age.
