A Simple Story

Folks, it surprises me just as much as it probably surprises you, but the Cinematheque screens a lot more than just old, obscure French minimalist movies. I know. Unreal. But in fact, it’s one of the only venues in town — probably the only venue — that screens recent foreign and indie releases that either never broached the Cleveland market or came and went quickly at the Cedar Lee. Tonight at 9:25 and tomorrow at 6:30 p.m., one such indie gem visits the Cinematheque: David Gordon Green’s Prince Avalanche. If you were familiar with Green before his Your Highness-ish low-comedy debacles, you know that he was an expert in small town, small-scale storytelling. His early films (George Washington, All the Real Girls) are exquisite little movies. Prince Avalanche signals a return to those early impulses. He’s got bigger names here, but the story’s simple enough: two highway workers (Paul Rudd, Emile Hirsch) in the summer of 1988 find themselves at odds. Boom. Let the landscape and the dialogue fill in the holes. Tickets are $9. (Allard)
