m/embers only picks for July
selected by Quentin Norris
Francois Ozon’s latest thrilling coming-of-age story, Summer of 85 bleeds true teenage angst from start to finish. If this passionate French thriller has sparked a love for films about angry teenage self-discovery amid rage and violence, then it’s time to return to one of the original sources with Francis Ford Coppola’s faithful and moving adaptation of the seminal S.E. Hinton novel, The Outsiders, the story of Ponyboy Curtis, a greaser trying to avoid violent conflict with the privileged Socs, while staying true to the brothers of his gang.
Youssou N’dour: I Bring What I Love
Art has the power to change the world, to make society rethink and question the status quo. After watching Aisling Chin-Yee’s powerful No Ordinary Man, the story of jazz musician Billy Tipton, wrongly identified for years as a woman who passed for a male musician, and the trans community’s journey to reclaim his story as one of their own, check out I Bring What I Love, in which Senegalese pop star Youssou N’dour records his landmark album, Egypt, that sought to bring tolerance toward his Muslim faith in Senegal.
sta/rring roles – July
This month, the ta/ke out library highlights the work of Nicolas Cage in honor of his recent film, Pig.
Cher wanted to cast Cage in Moonstruck after seeing his performance in Peggy Sue Got Married. Cage’s turn as Ronny Cammareri is electrifying, specifically his grandiose “I lost my hand, I lost my bride!” monologue in the character’s introduction.
One of Cage’s earliest roles, he is an absolute delight as the Punk Randy, opposite the Valley Girl, Julie, in this 80’s teen comedy rendition of the Romeo & Juliet story.
