MovieDescription
Sucker Punch
Released: 2011
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
An utterly charmless story of a mental institution inmate (Emily Browning) who concocts an elaborate alternate reality as the new girl in a ‘60s-era bordello. (K.J.)
Sucker Punch: The IMAX Experience
Released: 2011
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
An utterly charmless story of a mental institution inmate (Emily Browning) who concocts an elaborate alternate reality as the new girl in a ‘60s-era bordello. (K.J.)
Sudden Impact
Released: 1984
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The return of everyone's favorite misanthropic-romantic cop, Harry Callaghan, complete with that deathless comeback: "Go ahead...make my day." Directed with a fiercely propulsive drive by Eastwood himself, this the series best since Don Siegel's 1971 opener, Dirty Harry. Minimal reflection, tons of moral outrage, and hellishly brilliant action.
Suddenly Last summer
Released: 1959
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Tennessee Williams' blood-chilling little fable about a corrupt sybarite named Sebastian Venable who gets his in a particularly horrifying fashion amid the sunny climes and gaudy pleasures of the jet set - all told in flashback against the white, disinfected purity of a mental hospital. Monty Clift, unfortunately looks far too ravaged and crazy to be believable as a surgeon at an insane asylum. But the movie retains the play's sonorous horror and whispers of decadence and Elizabeth Taylor's lush physical charms have never been more intense.
Suez
Released: 1938
Rated:
Now Playing? No
DeLesseps' architectural and romantic struggles with the Suez Canal. Not as ponderous as most "official" epics; Dwan keeps it somewhat racy and light.
Sugar
Released: 2009
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
This funny, wonderfully ambiguous, sweetly woeful film is about a poor young Dominican (Algenis Perez Soto) who breaks into baseball in the U.S. The film is a penetrating look at the American immigrant experience, and Soto injects sly wit into his lines. (K.B.)
Sugar & Spice

Rated: PG-13

Sugar Cane Alley
Released: 1984
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Based on an autobiographical novel by Joseph Zobel (who appears briefly as an elderly priest), Sugar Cane Alley tells the story of a young boy named Jose who lives with his grandmother, M'Man Tine, in the Martinique of the 1930's. M'Man Tine toils in the sugar cane fields. Jose is a prodigiously intelligent student, it is through their eyes that we see Martinque's (and the world's) injustice, which becomes all the more maddening because of the patience with which it is borne by its victims. The first locally produced film in Martinque's history, Sugar Cane Alley will stay lodged forever in the hearts and minds of its audience, and it will, because of the hardships endured by its 29-year old writer-director (Euzhan Palcy, a Martinican woman from the cane fields herself, become something of a cinematic legend.

Sullivan's Travels
Released: 1941
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Sullivan, a successful Hollywood writer-director (his position suspiciously parallels that of his creator, Preston Sturges) has a yen to break new cinematic ground with a fervent sociological parable entitled "Brother, Where Art Thou?" The studio, however wants him to shoot another in his fabulously lucrative "Ants In Your Pants of 1939" series. They strike a compromise: Sullivan will hit the low road incognito, taking it on the bum to discover exactly where his brothers are. Sturges' most self-revealing film: hilarious, satiric, and poignant, an ode to all the mountebanks, entertainers, and clowns of the world.
Summer
Released: 1986
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
In Eric Rohmer's film, Delphine (Marie Rivière) is a beautiful young Parisian who is still smarting from a recent break-up.

Soon she is dealing with various uncomfortable situations, including a beach getaway where she is the only single person. After attempting a trip to the overcrowded Alps, Delphine entertains more vacation options, but will the restless soul ever find what she's looking for?

Summer Hours

Rated: NR

French siblings (among them Juliette Binoche) disagree over what to do with their deceased mother's property. Directed by Irma Vep's Oliver Assayas, this is a moving, understated film about the thorny problems of death and inheritance. (K.B.)

About an out-of-work actress (Lisa Harrow) who mistakes a homeless man (David Suchet) for a famous director.
Sundays and Cybele
Released: 1962
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The gentle, foredoomed relationship of a shell-shocked pilot (he flew bombing missions in the French-Indochinese war and is haunted by the memory of his victims) and a little girl he meets in the park. Very lyrically shot, with a stunner of a performance by Kruger as the pilot and a charming, luminous one by Patricia Gozzi as the child. (M.W.)
Sundown
Released: 1941
Rated:
Now Playing? No
1941 was an odd year for Gene Tierney; cast as one of Erskine Caldwell's peckerwoods in John Ford's Tobacco Road, she plays a native African girl (aiding the troops) in this Henry Hathaway film. She's better as Laura.
Sunflower
Released: 1970
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The weakest of all the DeSica-Zavattini films, largely due to idiotic interference by producer Carlo Ponti. The original scenario followed a Calabrese woman on her search through Russia for her husband missing in action since the close of World War II but this simple story was sabotaged by Ponti's frequently inane script changes - all done to protect Sophia Loren's image. According to De Sica: "My experience on this film was so terrible that I decided to rebel, and my rebellion was The Garden of the Finzi-Continis."
