Film Screening: Smile Upon Us, Lord From the Russian Stage

This film screening of a live production is Rimas Tuminas' adaptation of two novels by fellow Lithuanian Grigory Kanovich. A dreamy, ruminative, comedic road trip centers around the precarious fortunes of Eastern European Jews at the start of the 20th century. A period piece that carries a modern conscious, Smile Upon Us is a Becket-like "Waiting for Jehovah" that has garnered rave reviews during its recent runs in both London and New York, and promises to be just as memorable on the big screen. This production at the Emerson Paramount Center Bright Family Screening Room features three towering figures from the Russian stage, Viktor Sukhorukov, Aleksei Guskov and Vladimir Simonov.
