Boudu Saved from Drowning
This film screening is presented in conjunction with the Barnes Foundation’s Renoir: Father and Son/ Painting and Cinema, a major exhibition examining the artistic exchange between the renowned impressionist painter, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and his son, celebrated filmmaker Jean Renoir–on view at the Barnes May 6 through September 3, 2018. ___________ Michel Simon gives one of the most memorable performances in screen history as Boudu, a Parisian tramp who takes a suicidal plunge into the Seine and is rescued by a well-to-do bookseller, Edouard Lestingois (Charles Granval). The Lestingois family decides to take in the irrepressible bum, and he shows his gratitude by shaking the household to its foundations. With Boudu Saved from Drowning, legendary director Jean Renoir takes advantage of a host of Parisian locations and the anarchic charms of his lead actor to create an effervescent satire of the bourgeoisie.

King Richard II at the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival
More philosopher than king, King Richard is an intelligent but ineffectual monarch. Convinced of his divine right to rule, he leads recklessly which gives the cunning Henry Bolingbroke an opening to challenge his claim to the throne.   Filled with magnificent verse and Shakespeare’s singular wisdom and insight, King Richard II is a deeply moving and illuminating portrait of how the forces of history collide to set in motion a dynastic civil war that lasts 100 years.   See this first chapter in Shakespeare’s epic cycle of the wars that shaped a nation’s political landscape. In coming seasons, look forward to the next two chapters: Henry IV, Parts I and II.   Ages 10+ Sponsors are Amaranth Foundation and Keenan Nagle Advertising
