March 15 – 21
Nominated for Best Foreign Language Film, Cold War is a passionate love story between a man and a woman who meet in the ruins of post-war Poland. With vastly different backgrounds and temperaments, they are fatefully mismatched and yet condemned to each other. Set against the background of the Cold War in 1950s Poland, Berlin, Yugoslavia and Paris, it’s the tale of a couple separated by politics, character flaws and unfortunate twists of fate — an impossible love story in impossible times. Cold War earned Pawel Pawlikowski the Best Director award at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival.

“Pawel Pawlikowski’s savagely sexy spellbinder burns with a fever that won’t quit. Joanna Kulig is a shining new star who rips across the screen like a comet. Forget the frosty title, there’s enough sizzling carnality here to the singe the screen.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
“Cold War is a near-perfect film, an artfully crafted, flawlessly acted meditation on love, memory and invented history that’s both deeply personal and politically attuned.” – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
“An aching film on such exquisite pains of impossible love, Paweł Pawlikowski’s Cold War concurrently swells your heart and breaks it.” – Tomris Laffly, RogerEbert.com
