Seasonal Special Happenings

Model Citizen

When: Fri., Nov. 22 2013

Directed by Fernando Trueba (Belle Epoque, Chico & Rita), The Artist and the Model won all sorts of awards when it came out last year. Beautifully filmed in black and white, it centers on an elderly artist (Jean Rochefort) living in German-occupied France during the height of World War II. The artist provides safekeeping for a beautiful young Spanish political exile (Aida Folch) as long as she agrees to pose for him. Tensions arise when she threatens to leave him and go back to Spain. The movie shows tonight at 7 at the Cleveland Museum of Art. It also screens at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets are $9. (Niesel)
