The Rehoboth Beach Film Society’s Cinema Art Theater, starting Friday, Aug. 5, will present “Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris”; “Hallelujah: Leonard Cohen, A Journey, A Song”; and “All Sorts.”
“Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris” is a charming fairy-tale-infused comedy about a woman’s journey to achieve her dream of having a one-of-a-kind garment, a couture Dior dress.
In 1950s London, a widowed residential cleaning lady (Leslie Manville) falls madly in love with a Dior gown, deciding she must have one of her own. After working to raise the funds to pursue her dream, she embarks on an adventure to Paris that will change not only her own outlook, but also the very future of the House of Dior.
“Hallelujah: Leonard Cohen, A Journey, A Song” chronicles the downs and eventual redemption of the songwriter behind “Hallelujah.” This film weaves together three creative strands: The songwriter and his times; the song’s dramatic journey from a record-label reject to chart-topping hit; and moving testimonies from major recording artists. Approved for production by Leonard Cohen just before his 80th birthday in 2014, the documentary accesses Cohen’s personal notebooks, journals, photographs, performance footage, and extremely rare audio recordings and interviews.
A quirky workplace romantic comedy about the underground world of championship folder filing, “All Sorts” takes viewers back to the age-old drudgery of office filing and manages to find relevance in this century. Diego (Eli Vargas) is desperate – for a job, for excitement and for love. When he gets hired by Vasquez, the absurd boss who loves data but can't type, Diego finds himself in the strange, strange land of Data-Mart. There he meets June, an incredibly fast filer, and as the two make their way into the secret world of underground filing, things will never be the same. Diego agrees to be her coach and manager, and as June rises up through the ranks, the two begin to fall for each other. Do they really have a shot, or are they just fooling themselves?
Admission is $9 for members and $11.50 for general audiences. Purchase advance tickets online at rehobothfilm.com or at the theater box office beginning 30 minutes prior to the screening.
