Eating Animals (2pm) How much do you know about the food that’s on your plate? Based on the bestselling book by Jonathan Safran Foer and narrated by co-producer Natalie Portman, Eating Animals is an eye-opening look at the environmental, economic, and public health consequences of factory farming. Tracing the history of food production in the United States, the film charts how farming has gone from local and sustainable to a corporate Frankenstein monster that offers cheap eggs, meat, and dairy at a steep cost: the exploitation of animals; the risky use of antibiotics and hormones; and the pollution of our air, soil, and water. Spotlighting farmers who have pushed backed against industrial agriculture with more humane practices, Eating Animals offers attainable, commonsense solutions to a growing crisis while making the case that ethical farming is not only an animal rights issue but one that affects every aspect of our lives. Presented in part by GLOBAL GIFTS and BLOOMINGFOODS (95 min)

Tea With the Dames (4pm) What happens when four legends of British stage and screen get together? Dame Maggie Smith, Dame Judi Dench, Dame Eileen Atkins, and Dame Joan Plowright are among the most celebrated actresses of our time, with scores of iconic performances, decades of wisdom, and innumerable Oscars, Tonys, Emmys, and BAFTAs between them. They are also longtime friends who hereby invite you to join them for a weekend in the country. (85 min)

The Bookshop (6pm) England, 1959. a free-spirited widow risks everything to open a bookshop in a seaside English village. Her bookshop brings about a surprising cultural awakening through the works of Ray Bradbury and Vladimir Nabokov. And she a earns the polite but ruthless opposition of a local grand dame along with the support and affection of a reclusive book loving widower. Emily Mortimer, Patricia Clarkson and Bill Nighy star in this wonderful adaptation of the beloved novel by Penlope Fitzgerald. Winner: Best Film, Best Director, Best Screenplay – 2018 GOYA Awards. (113 min)

Love, Gilda (8:15) Trail-blazing comedienne Gilda Radner gets the last laugh, and a few tears, as she reflects on her life and career. Weaving together her recently discovered audiotapes, interviews with friends (Chevy Chase, Lorne Michaels, Laraine Newman, Paul Shaffer and Martin Short), rare home movies and diaries read by modern-day comedians inspired by Gilda (Bill Hader, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph and Cecily Strong), LOVE, GILDA opens up a unique window into the honest and whimsical world of a beloved performer whose greatest role was sharing her story.
