This sort of inchoate desire, or desire that doesn’t have an object, is interesting to me, because I think it’s so much a dimension of what it is to be an ambitious woman. Because, for every other moment in human history, [that ambition] had nowhere to go… I knew I could not do the ending [of LITTLE WOMEN] just as the book did—especially because Louisa May Alcott didn’t really want to end it that way… and if we can’t give her an ending she would like, 150 years later, then what have we done? We’ve made no progress.Greta Gerwig

Gerwig’s LITTLE WOMEN—a complete artistic success and Noah Baumbach’s favorite film of the year—is here.

On January 3, Gerwig, Saoirse Ronan, and the American Cinematheque present a double-feature screening of LITTLE WOMEN and LADY BIRD at the Egyptian Theatre, with a between-film conversation.

ROMA is designed to be meaningful whether experienced at home or on the big screen, but offering cinema lovers the opportunity to see it in theaters is incredibly important to me.

“The 70mm print of ROMA shows unique details not available on any other version. Being shot in 65mm, these prints bring live detail and contrast only possible using a big format film. It is for sure the most organic way to experience ROMA.” — Alfonso Cuarón

You’ve seen it on Netflix, and maybe the DCP.
