LIFE, ANIMATED is the real-life story of Owen Suskind, the son of the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Ron Suskind. An autistic boy who couldnt speak for years, Owen memorized dozens of Disney movies, turned them into a language to express love and loss, kinship, brotherhood. The family was forced to become animated characters, communicating with him in Disney dialogue and song until they all emerge, together, revealing how, in darkness, we all literally need stories to survive.

“A joyful and emotional film about the true power of cinema”

-/Film

 

“Deeply moving… A warm testament to a family’s love and resilience.”

-Variety

“Beautiful, triumphant, and inspiring.”

Winner of the Director Award for US Documentary at the Sundance Film Festival.

Three sisters Sachi, Yoshino and Chika live together in a large house in the city of Kamakura. When their father absent from the family home for the last 15 years dies, they travel to the countryside for his funeral and meet their shy teenage half-sister. Bonding quickly with the orphaned Suzu, they invite her to live with them. Suzu eagerly agrees, and a new life of joyful discovery begins for the four siblings.

“Our Little Sister uses the story of one fractured family to offer universal — and deeply moving — observations on the human condition.”

-Rotten Tomatoes

 

“You are shaken, by the end, at how much you care about these women and how sorry you are to leave their company.”

-A.O. Scott, The New York Times

“Our Little Sister” is so meticulously shot and gracefully orchestrated that it can be considered a worthy contempo successor to Kon Ichikawa’s masterpiece “The Makioka Sisters.”

Kiss your Ex Goodbye. Just Kidding. |  A NEW Romantic Comedy with Plenty of Drama


Buy Tickets

The Hipp continues our wonderful partnership with the UF School of Theatre + Dance on another outstanding production: Sarah Ruhl’s Stage Kiss. Previous Hipp/UF collaborations (Avenue Q, Clybourne Park, and Peter and the Starcatcher) have been audience favorites, and we can’t wait to share this New York Times CRITICS PICK with you. Stage Kiss is a charming and clever tale about what happens when lovers share a stage kiss – or when actors share a real one. This romantic comedy blends over-the-top farce with emotional experiences that will bring laughter, fantasy and heart to anyone who has ever been in love…or in a play.

This production contains adult language and situations.

 

“Suffused with warmth and humor” — New York Times

“Romantic comedy and backstage farce”— New York Times

“Stage Kiss is part parody, part inside-baseball valentine to theater, part falling-down silly physical comedy about love.” – Newsday

“A superb new romantic.”

“It’s moving, smart, and flat-out hilarious.” 

 

8 Shows a Week:  Tuesdays-Thursdays at 7pm | Fridays at 8pm | Saturdays at 5 & 8:30pm | Sundays at 2 & 7pm

Warsaw, December 1945: the second World War is finally over and French Red Cross doctor Mathilde (Lou de Laage) is treating the last of the French survivors of the German camps. When a panicked Benedictine nun appears at the clinic begging Mathilde to follow her back to the convent, what she finds there is shocking: a holy sister about to give birth and several more in advanced stages of pregnancy. A non-believer, Mathilde enters the sisters’ fiercely private world, dictated by the rituals of their order and the strict Rev. Mother (Agata Kulesza, Ida). Fearing the shame of exposure, the hostility of the occupying Soviet troops and local Polish communists and while facing an unprecedented crisis of faith, the nuns increasingly turn to Mathilde as their beliefs and traditions clash with harsh realities.

“Leaves us with a fresh understanding of our capacity to respond to suffering with good or evil, and to find new definitions of grace and vocation.” – Justin Chang, Variety

 
“A near perfect film with restrained, yet powerful, performances, direction that allows the narrative to unfold in truly revelatory ways, surprising humor, and cinematography that begs translation into still photography.” – J. Ryan Parker, Patheos.com

“A moving drama about the struggle to keep one’s faith in the most difficult of situations…a compelling deconstruction of how to cope and rebuild.” – Jordan Raup, The Film Stage
