Seasonal Special Happenings

Greek Life

When: Thu., Aug. 29, 6:45 p.m. 2013

A Greek orphan girl is at the center of 2004's The Weeping Meadow, the first film in a trilogy from the late Greek director Theo Angelopoulos. An epic movie, the film takes place during the years of 1919-1949 and is shot so beautifully, many of the scenes look like they could be stills from some kind of realist painting. There's plenty of good drama here, too, as the young orphan girl first marries her adoptive father and then runs off with her adopted brother. It's been called "the most beautiful movie ever made." The film shows at 6:45 tonight and at 7:30 tomorrow night at the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque. Tickets are $9. (Niesel)
