OPENING NIGHT FILM ON MY WAY ELLE S’EN VA

HAWAII PREMIERE FRANCE 2013 | FRENCH WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES | 116M DIRECTOR: Emmanuelle Bercot CAST: Catherine Deneuve, Nemo Schiffman, Gerard Garouste FRIDAY, APRIL 4 / 7:00 PM / HTC $20 GENERAL PUBLIC $15 HIFF MEMBERS

Bettie (Catherine Deneuve) is a former beauty queen in her sixties. She runs a local bistro and lives with her elderly mother, with whom she enjoys a spiritedly dysfunctional relationship. It is from her that she learns the humiliating news that her married lover has left his wife for another, younger woman. The next day, still upset by the revelation, she gets into her car and starts driving. With nods to Truffaut, Techine; and Dupeyron, ON MY WAY is a love letter to screen icon Deneuve, although director Emmanuelle Bercot doesn't let her obvious infatuation distract, grounding the film in a verite style and employing a contemporary soundtrack to reflect Bettie's resilience and capacity for joy. Deneuve proves herself more than worthy of the tribute, delivering a deeply compassionate portrayal of a mature woman who chooses one last shot at love and happiness over a lifetime of nostalgia and regret.

Shanghai, China. One of the most prestigious culinary competitions is under way. Julia (Michelle Yeoh) hopes that her husband David (a former chef) enters the contest and rediscovers his love for cooking. But, he'll have to compete against a young prodigy named Mark who wins round after round against some of the toughest competitors in Asia. Julia notices something particular about Mark, slowly realizing that the young prodigy and her husband resemble each other.

Inspired by true events and South Korea's former president, Roh Moo-hyun, THE ATTORNEY tells a riveting and heart-warming tale about the transformation of Song Woo-seo (Song Kang-ho), who was once the most successful real estate and tax lawyer in Busan but later became a human rights lawayer during the oppressive military dictatorship led by Chun Doo-hwan. Furious by the arrest of Jinwoo (ZE:A's Lim Si-wan)--the son of an aged widow who owns a small restaurant where Song frequently visits--Song declines the enticing offer from a large corporation and decides to defend the falsely accused college students including Jinwoo.

FREE

Presented by Honolulu Community College's Student Media Board, this special screening of TWENTY FEET FROM STARDOM will be held at Honolulu Community College and will be FREE to the public. The screening will be held on the lawn in the center of the campus. Event begins at 6PM with food and pre-show entertainment, screening begins at 7:30PM. What would a pop song be without the riffs, refrains, and harmonies of its backup vocalists? Although these singers are usually relegated to the margins, and few, if any, become household names, their work has defined countless songs that remain in our hearts and collective consciousness. TWENTY FEET FROM STARDOM juxtaposes interviews with industry legends (Bruce Springsteen, Bette Midler, and others) and the relative unknowns who support them like Darlene Love, Merry Clayton, Lisa Fischer, and Judith Hill (currently on "The Voice") as they illuminate the art of melding their own distinct voices with lead vocals and reveal their desires for careers as solo artists.

In late eighteenth century England, Dido Elizabeth Belle is born to a white British admiral and a black Caribbean slave. The admiral's family is appalled, but when he returns to sea, custom dictates that they raise his child as an aristocrat. Britain's imposing Lord Mansfield is both Dido's uncle and the family patriarch, and instructs this biracial young woman to respect both the law and the social codes of her station. She is a lady, but an embarrassment. How is she ever to marry? Stirring and thought-provoking, BELLE is as beautiful and romantic as any Austen adaptation, yet with new insights into its time.

Miko Livelo's light and humorous approach on the misadventures of Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) makes BLUE BUSTAMANTE a delight for audiences. George Bustamante is an OFW in Japan looking to provide for his family in the Philippines. He loses his job shortly after his arrival, but instead of going home in defeat, George decides to search for a new job while keeping his misfortune a secret. An odd turn of events lands him a job as a stunt double for a Japanese TV show as a masked superhero, named Blue Force. Much to his surprise, the show becomes a hit an international hit, and George must choose to either continue to work as the masked crusader or return home to be with his family.

After twelve years in prison, he sets off with his partner in crime Dickie (Richard E. Grant) looking to collect what he's owed for keeping his mouth shut and protecting his boss Mr. Fontaine (Demian Birchir). After a near death experience, Dom tries to re-connect with his estranged daughter (Emilia Clarke), but is soon drawn back into the only world he knows, looking to settle the ultimate debt.

James is both Simon's exact physical double and his opposite—confident, charismatic and seductive with women. To Simon's horror, James slowly starts taking over his life.

A crew of seasoned criminals led by the notorious Nam (Hu Jun), pulls off another smooth and violent armored car heist in broad daylight. Whoever tries to get in their way, they show no mercy. This humiliates and shames the police force. A hardboiled senior police inspector Lui (Andy Lau), hot on the trails of Nam, determines to put an end to this madness. But he soon comes face to face with the cruel reality that the usual police tactics are too futile to send these armed thieves behind bars. Extreme crime requires extreme justice, even if it means crossing his moral line.

1735. Tokugawa era Japan. The Inaba clan is struggling under the weight of the Tokugawa shogunate's demands. The Inaba clan's allegiance to Toyotomi during the war has earned them the designation of a 'Tozama clan', the name given to clans previously allied with enemy forces. Under Tokugawa rule, they are bound to use their money solely for the shogunate, unable to even repair their castle without permission. Even the slightest violation could mean annihilation for the clan. With a shogunate envoy in the castle, and spies in the ranks, the Inaba clan must watch their every move....A samurai classic in the making, BUSHIDO is story of one clan's struggle for justice against all odds!

Actor Ha Jung-woo's directorial debut is a hilarious comedic romp revolving around a stormy, troubled flight with a Korean movie star, a business tycoon, paparazzi, and a monk on board! The pilot smokes nonchalantly at the cockpit, the crew is busy talking behind the passengers' backs, and the characters are all somewhat off-beat: the monk tries to convince the Korean star to become a vegetarian, the business tycoon's secretary is busy bossing everyone around, and a random woman wants the Korean star to give her an autograph telling him, "I want you."

Ghosts and spirits already haunt its hallways, but when a distraught widow tries to bring her husband back from the dead, the tenement is plunged into a dark storm of supernatural chaos.

As a child forced into Japanese-American internment camps, the actor-turned-activist reveals the ways that racism affected him well into his early acting career, where he played stereotypical Asian stock characters in film and television shows. Even after landing the iconic role of Hikaru Sulu on Star Trek, Takei's sharp eye, coupled with his wicked sense of humor, continued to challenge the status quo well into the twenty-first century.

Jubei Kamata (Ken Watanabe) is an infamous former swordsman who spends his days tending a struggling farm. His commitment to pastoral tranquility is tested when Kingo Baba, an old comrade in arms, brings news of a bounty substantial enough to secure his children's future. Somewhat reluctantly, Jubei joins Kingo in the saddle, along with young braggart Goro. Together, they fancy themselves more than a match for the wanted men. But they are also destined to encounter a far more formidable faction, led by a sadistic lawman with a distaste for soldiers of fortune. Lee Sang-il directs this stunning Japanese remake of Clint Eastwood's classic film.

In the early 60s, Monica, a young, rebellious girl from Sweden is determined to make it as a singer in the vibrant jazz clubs of Stockholm and New York City. She embarks on the singing career of her dreams, rubbing shoulders with Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald and Bill Evans. But behind all the glamour, Monica struggles to face the dark side of fame and success. With a string of broken love affairs, a father she can never please, and a daughter to whom she'll never be the perfect mother, Monica finds herself feeling more lost than ever.

Prep school English teacher Jack (Clive Owen) laments his students' obsession with social media and good grades - as opposed to rigorous engagement with language. A one-time literary star, Jack has not published in years. And Jack drinks. A lot. Dina (Juliette Binoche) is an abstract painter. Like Jack, she was once celebrated for her art, but the onset of arthritis has made the painting too painful to bear. With his job on the line, Jack comes upon an inspired method of galvanizing student interest in their studies: he declares a war between words and pictures. Dina accepts Jack's challenge and the battles begin.

THURSDAY, APRIL 10 / 8:45 PM / DOL Jeong Yoon is a caring wife and mother and a sensitive woman who finds herself plunged into a legal ordeal thousands of miles from home.

When Jeong Yoon turns up looking nervous at Orly Airport in Paris with over 30 kilograms of cocaine in her luggage, it is the beginning of a globespanning nightmare that began with an old friend and a tempting proposition.
