Jude Law’s Dom Hemingway gets an extended stay at Enzian, Richard Ayoade’s bleak Eraserheadesque film The Double premieres, and one for the kids – An American Tail.
By Jacob Engels
Starting this week, we will be publishing a weekly article detailing the happenings at Enzian Theater in Maitland – the best art theater of the south. We will provide a brief preview of the films showing and what food and drink it pairs best with.
The Double —
Starting this Friday, Richard Ayoade’s film The Double starts it run at Enzian with a 4PM premiere – but we recommend attending the 630PM showing. Ayoade’s take on Dostoevsky’s classic is reminiscent of David Lynch’s Eraserhead. Bleak, bare, and bold – Jesse Eisenberg & Mia Wasikowska deliver wonderfully robotic yet versatile performances.
This dark novella is best paired with a Left Hand Brewing Company Milk Stout and the insanely delicious truffle parmesan fries. GET TICKETS.
Dom Hemingway —
Richard Shepard’s dark comedy will extend it’s run at Enzian, earning an additional week of showtimes. When we interviewed Shepard during the Florida Film Festival, he sad Jude Law really “let himself go” to become the title character Dom Hemingway. Dom is a safe cracker who is released from prison after serving 12 years, and he is ready to collect his fair share from his former boss Mr. Fontaine. Along with Jude Law, Dom Hemingway stars Weeds alum Demian Bichir and Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke – THE MOTHER OF DRAGONS.
This gut busting black comedy is all the antithesis of moderation, so we recommend a pitcher of Dogfish Head Indian Brown Ale with a Braised Roast Beef sandwhich. Finish it off with some chocolate chip cookies, after all Dom just got out of prison – so you need to indulge with him and eat like you’ve spent 12 years in the slammer. GET TICKETS.
An American Tail —
One of my favorite films from my childhood, An American Tail serves as this month’s Peanut Butter Matinee Family Film (Only $5 per ticket) and plays this Sunday at 12pm. Fievel plays a young Russian mouse who is separated from his parents on their way to the new world – America, which they think is a land without cats.
As there is a special kids menu for this showing, we recommend the PB&J paired with the Mac n’ Cheese – sweet & salty. GET TICKETS.
