Best Limited Releases Coming To Pittsburgh – September 2014 Edition

No No: A Dockumentary – Harris Theater

After a successful August screening, No No returns to reflect on the life and times of one of baseball’s most controversial figures. In the 1970s, Pittsburgh Pirate Dock Ellis pitched a no-hitter on LSD and his outspoken style courted conflict and controversy, but his latter years were spent helping others recover from addiction. Director Jeffrey Radice‘s film weaves a surprising and moving story of a life in and out of the spotlight. No No: A Dockumentary will screen from September 5th through September 18th at the Harris Theater.

The Trip to Italy – Manor Theatre

the-trip-to-italy-manor

Director Michael Winterbottom’s largely improvised 2010 film, The Trip, took comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon—or semifictionalized versions thereof—on a restaurant tour around northern England. In this witty and incisive follow-up, Winterbottom reunites the pair for a new culinary road trip, retracing the steps of the Romantic poets’ grand tour of Italy and indulging in some sparkling banter and impersonation-offs. Rewhetting our palates from the earlier film, the characters enjoy mouthwatering meals in gorgeous settings from Liguria to Capri while riffing on subjects as varied as Batman’s vocal register, the artistic merits of Jagged Little Pill, and, of course, the virtue of sequels. The Trip to Italy opens September 5th at Manor Theatre.

Frank – Hollywood Theater

Acclaimed Irish director Lenny Abrahamson follows up his award-winning films Adam & Paul, Garage and What Richard Did with an offbeat comedy about a young wannabe musician, Jon (Domhnall Gleeson), who finds himself out of his depth when he joins an avant-garde pop band led by the mysterious and enigmatic Frank (Michael Fassbender), a musical genius who hides himself inside a large fake head, and his terrifying bandmate Clara (Maggie Gyllenhaal). Frank will screen at the Hollywood Theater on September 6th and September 7th and September 9th through September 11th.

The One I Love – Regent Square Theater

On the brink of separation, Ethan (Mark Duplass) and Sophie (Elisabeth Moss) escape to a beautiful vacation house for a weekend getaway in an attempt to save their marriage. What begins as a romantic and fun retreat soon becomes surreal, when an unexpected discovery forces the two to examine themselves, their relationship, and their future. The debut feature from acclaimed author Charlie McDowell continues to showcase his keen observations of human relationships with a distinct and comedic voice. The One I Love opens on September 12th at the Regent Square Theater.
