Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer
Monday, May 7, 2012
Playing at 6 pm – Monday Night Doc
Director: Alex Gibney
This documentary feature takes an in-depth look at the rapid rise and dramatic fall of New York Governor Eliot Spitzer. Nicknamed “The Sheriff of Wall Street,” when he was NY’s Attorney General, Eliot Spitzer prosecuted crimes by America’s largest financial institutions and some of the most powerful executives in the country. After his election as Governor, with the largest margin in the state’s history, many believed Spitzer was on his way to becoming the nation’s first Jewish President. Then, shockingly, Spitzer’s meteoric rise turned into a precipitous fall when the New York Times revealed that Spitzer – the paragon of rectitude – had been caught seeing prostitutes. As his powerful enemies gloated, his supporters questioned the timing of it all: as the Sheriff fell, so did the financial markets, in a cataclysm that threatened to unravel the global economy. With unique access to the escort world and well as friends, colleagues and enemies of the ex-Governor (many of whom have come forward for the first time) the film explores the hidden contours of this tale of hubris, sex, and power.
Salmon Fishing in the Yemen
Monday, May 7, 2012
Playing at 1:00, 3:30 and 8:30.
Director: Lasse Hallström
Cast: Ewan McGregor, Emily Blunt, Kristin Scott Thomas
A visionary sheik believes his passion for the peaceful pastime of salmon fishing can enrich the lives of his people, and he dreams of bringing the sport to the not so fish-friendly desert. Willing to spare no expense, he instructs his representative (Emily Blunt) to turn the dream into reality, an extraordinary feat that will require the involvement of Britain’s leading fisheries expert (Ewan McGregor) who happens to think the project both absurd and unachievable. That is, until the Prime Minister’s overzealous press secretary latches on to it as a ‘good will’ story. Now, this unlikely team will put it all on the line and embark on an upstream journey of faith and fish to prove the impossible, possible.
“A surprisingly lush, endearing little film, in which a swelling sense of
romanticism thoroughly banishes even the most far-fetched improbabilities.”
-Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
“It’s an uplifting, even enchanting, smile-inducer.”
-Mike Scott, New Orleans Times-Picayune
“A distinct delight, brimming over with spirit and surprise.”
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
