MISTAKEN FOR STRANGERS

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 18 | 7 PM

Hailed by Michael Moore as "one of the best documentaries about a band I've ever seen" and by Pitchfork as "the funniest, most meta music movie since Spinal Tap," Mistaken For Strangers is a truly hilarious and touching film about two brothers, Matt and Tom Berninger. Matt, the lead singer of the critically acclaimed rock band The National, finds himself flush with success. His younger brother Tom is a loveable slacker - a filmmaker and metal-head still living with his parents in Cincinnati. On the eve of The National's biggest tour to date, Matt invites Tom to work for the band as a roadie, unaware of Tom's plan to film the entire adventure. What starts as a rock documentary quickly becomes a crowd-pleasing journey about family, ambition, and the creative process.


STOKER

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 16 | 7 PM

As a chilling, spine-tingling prelude to the Halloween season, Crested Butte Film Series presents this thrilling, mysterious, homage-to-Hitchcock drama starring Nicole Kidman and Mia Wasikowska. Directed by legendary filmmaker Chan-wook Park of OLD BOY fame, the gorgeously-shot STOKER tells the story of a mother and daughter coping with the accidental death of their husband/father, and the mysterious uncle who arrives at their home with his sights set on each. STOKER thrills, scares, excites and charms, and we invite you to join us in this story of a family gone terribly wrong.

Directed by Chan-wook Park. Running time is 99 minutes. Rated R. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

Takes place at the Center for the Arts, 606 6th Street. (303) 204-9080. www.cbfilmfest.org
