    Off the Beaten Path Film Series

    4 p.m.Latchis Theatre

    The Latchis Theatre is bringing back by popular demand its Off the Beaten Path film series, which showcases recent films which may have slipped under the radar but shouldn’t have. The series, presented in collaboration with the Brattleboro Film Festival, starts this weekend with the dramatic historical feature “Labyrinth of Lies” on Saturday and Sunday, Novoff beaten path 12-15 posterember 28 and 29, at 4 p.m. Off the Beaten Path continues Saturdays and Sundays at 4 p.m., through December 12 and 13.

    “Just as Thanksgiving isn’t Thanksgiving without all the fixings, so is a movie lineup that has powerhouse popular films like ‘Mockingjay’ and ‘Spectre’ without offering something for other tastes. These Off the Beaten Path Films help us serve a feast with all the fixings,” said Latchis Executive Director Jon Potter.

    Hailed as “big, sturdy, righteous and romantic” by Newsday, “Labyrinth of Lies” is set in Germany in the 1960s. The economic miracle is changing the lives of Germans in post-war Germany. Most of the people are sick of hearing about the war and prefer to push their guilt to the side. When a journalist (Andre Szymanski) identifies a teacher in the playground as a former guard from Auschwitz, no one wants to take notice. “Labyrinth of Lies” is Rated R.

    Off the Beaten Path continues December 5 and 6 at 4 p.m., with “Jimmy’s Hall.” A period drama rish in sociopolitical themes, “Jimmy’s Hall” is set in Ireland in 1921. Jimmy Gralton’s sin was to build a dance hall at a rural crossroads in an Ireland on the brink of Civil War. The dance hall was a place where young people could come to learn, to argue and to dream … but, above all, to dance and have fun. As the hall grew in popularity, its socialist and free-spirited reputation brought it to the attention of the church and politicians, who forced Jimmy to flee and the hall to close. “Jimmy’s Hall” is Rated PG-13.

    Off the Beaten Path concludes on December 12 and 13 with “Coming Home.” Lu Yanshi (Chen Daoming) and Feng Wanyu (Gong Li) are a devoted couple forced to separate when Lu is arrested and sent to a labor camp as a political prisoner just as his wife is injured in an accident. Released from prison during the last days of the Cultural Revolution, he finally returns home only to find that his beloved wife has amnesia and remembers little of her past. Unable to recognize Lu, she patiently waits for her husband’s return.
