Russian Film: "Elena"
Thu, January 30, 2014 | Marchesa Theater, 6226 Middle Fiskville Rd
Apart of Austin Film Society's series entitled, "Pushing the Curtain Aside: Russian Films of the Past Two Decades".
Elena, a middle-aged former nurse from a poor background, appears to have struck it very lucky. A wealthy patient, Vladimir, married her and now she lives with him in his luxury apartment with nothing to do but tend conscientiously to her husband. He is ageing, but their love life is still vigorous, and he bullishly insists on attending the local private gym. The problem with this happy and workable arrangement is that each spouse detests the other's grownup child from a previous marriage. Vladimir's daughter Katya is a spoilt party animal who sneers at her indulgent dad; Elena's son Sergei is a feckless waster who keeps producing kids and thinks of his mum's marriage as his meal ticket. Vladimir has not yet written his will, and a crisis ensues.
In Russian with English subtitles.
Cost: $5 with student ID; $8 general admission
