Tuesday, 21 March: Certain Women (original with subtitles)

The director Kelly Reichardt links three stories with four women living in different cities. The film is based on the short stories of the writer Maile Meloy, and tries to go beyond the stereotypes of female characters in films giving them realistic connotations and facing them with problems of the everyday life. Certain Women is an enjoyable film in which relationships are enriched by small things of the everyday life and not by great events. With the help of an incredible cast -with Laura Dern, Michelle Williams, Kristen Stewart and Lily Gladstone- Reichardt has created a touching film with great visual impact.
Beginning: 7:30 p.m.; Admission: €6, reduced ticket €5; How to get there: Thalia Cinema, Görlitzer Strasse 6, 01099 Dresden;  TRAM 13 stop ‘Görlitzer Straße’
