Eleanor Coppola's feature film directorial and screenwriting debut at the age of 81 stars Academy Award® nominee Diane Lane as a Hollywood producer's wife who unexpectedly takes a trip through France which reawakens her sense of self and her joie de vivre. Anne (Lane) is at a crossroads in her life. Long married to a successfully driven but inattentive movie producer (Alec Baldwin), she's a little bored with her routine. She finds herself taking a car trip from Cannes to Paris with Jacques (Arnaud Viard), a business associate of her husband. What should be a straightforward drive turns into a surprising zigzag journey of discovery involving fine food and wine, humor, wisdom, and picturesque sights. Looking for a little old fashioned, playful flirtation? Don't miss Paris Can Wait. "B+. One of the sexiest and most joyful road movies in some time." –Jordan Ruimy, The Film Stage.

For many years local musician Alasdair Fraser has been entertaining Nevada County music lovers with his incredible fiddle playing. Now we're pleased to present the first local showings of a new documentary about Alasdair by Tommie Smith. It follows Alasdair's personal journey in search of self expression, a quest that has led him to dig deep into his Scottish musical roots. There he finds a universal pulse – a groove – that runs through his virtuosic performances with cellist Natalie Haas and his dynamic teaching at his wildly popular, freewheeling fiddle camps in California, Scotland, and Spain. With its stirring scenes of fiddle players of all ages playing their hearts out, the film shows that Alasdair is at the epicenter of a movement in which people are finding their own voices and a deep sense of community through the shared love and joy of music. Alasdair will be at the Thursday showing and director Tommie Smith and producer Kate Fritz will be at the Sunday showing which will have a later start at 8:00 to allow the streets to clear after the Bike Race.
