"Rush" Movie Screening

Sunday, March 9, 3PM
Followed by pizza or Chinese take-out dinner.
RSVP to John at jandkepstein@hotmail.com for address.

Two-time Academy Award®-winner Ron Howard delivers the exhilarating true story of a legendary rivalry that rocked the world. During the sexy and glamorous golden age of Formula 1 racing, two drivers emerged as the best: gifted English playboy James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth, The Avengers) and his methodical, brilliant Austrian opponent, Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl, Inglourious Basterds). As they mercilessly clash on and off the Grand Prix racetrack, the two drivers push themselves to the breaking point of physical and psychological endurance, where there's no shortcut to victory and no margin for error. Co-starring Olivia Wilde (TRON: Legacy), it's the heart-racing, epic, action-drama that critics are calling "one of the best movies of this, or any, year" (Pete Hammond, Movieline).

Based on Shakespeare's tragic story, and set to Prokofiev's passionate score, the ballet features 30 dancers, beautiful sets, and stunning costumes.
  
What the critics have said:
 
"The duets between Juliet and Romeo - in particular, the critical balcony scene - are choreographed, and were executed, with the combination of rapture and conviction, that quality of being genuine, that is necessary to make the audience feel what the dancers feel, and to respond with the cathartic release that prompts appreciative, as opposed to obligatory, applause."
-- Jerry Hochman, Critical Dance
Read the full review here.

"ARB's production of Romeo and Juliet was an outstanding example of dance being perfectly adapted to dramatic interpretation, with the ARB dancers in full command of their art." 
-- Marina Kennedy, Broadway World
