Upcoming Films at the University of Miami

 

April 12 – 14 BEYOND THE HILLS — This harrowing, visually stunning new film from director Cristian Mungiu inspired by the non-fiction novels of Tatiana Niculescu Bran, unfolds in and around a remote monastery where pious young women toil dutifully under the ever-watchful eye of a priest known as Papa. As the film opens, Alina (Cristina Flutur) arrives to visit her friend Voichita (Cosmina Stratan), one of the nuns in training. As children, the two women lived together in an orphanage where the tough, short-tempered Alina served as a protector for her more delicate friend.
Inspired by a case of alleged demonic possession that occurred in Romania's Moldova region in 2005, Beyond the Hills is a believable portrait of dogma at odds with personal liberty in a society still emerging from the shadow of Communism. For their remarkable lead performances, screen newcomers Flutur and Stratan shared the Best Actress prize at this year's Cannes Film Festival, where Mungiu also received the Best Screenplay award. Beyond the Hills screens Friday, April 12 at 7:30 p.m.; Saturday, April 13 at 1 p.m., 4 p.m., and 7 p.m., and Sunday, April 14 at 5 p.m.

April 13 – 14 LINCOLN — As the Civil War continues to rage, President Lincoln struggles with continuing carnage on the battlefield and as he fights with many inside his own cabinet on the decision to emancipate the slaves. Daniel Day-Lewis stars as the iconic president in this Academy Award-winning film. Lincoln screens Saturday, April 13 at 10 p.m. and Sunday, April 14 at 8 p.m.

General admission is $9. Admission is $7 for seniors, University of Miami alumni, faculty, non-UM students and staff. Free for UM students. To purchase tickets online or for more information, visit www.cosfordcinema.com or call 305-284-4861.

Need Your Help

We are calling on our University of Miami alumni to help us support an important initiative to make our community safer for our students, alumni, and guests! A petition is being circulated to help the community prove to the University Centre Plaza owner to release parking spaces in order for a pedestrian overpass project to be built over US1. The overpass project is in honor of Ashley Kelly, a student who was killed crossing US1.

Click here to learn more, sign, and share with your fellow alumni: Owner of University Centre Plaza: Allow for the US 1 Overpass to built through Mariposa. Since 1989, eight UM students have been struck by vehicles while attempting to cross U.S. 1 around Mariposa Court, the intersection of the shopping.
