It’s time for us to let go of the Oscar-winning film AMOUR. Today (3/7) is your last chance to see it at THE NEON. On Friday, we will open an exclusive engagement of EMPEROR – the new WWII drama starring Tommy Lee Jones and Matthew Fox. In addition, we will continue our run of QUARTET – it has been our biggest hit in a long time! Remaining showtimes for this week are at: www.neonmovies.com.
Synopsis for EMPEROR: “Matthew Fox joins Academy Award winner Tommy Lee Jones, newcomer Eriko Hatsune, and award-winning Japanese star Toshiyuki Nishida to bring to life the American occupation of Japan in the perilous and unpredictable days just after Emperor Hirohito’s World War II surrender. As General Douglas MacArthur (Jones) suddenly finds himself the de facto ruler of a foreign nation, he assigns an expert in Japanese culture – and psychological warfare – General Bonner Fellers (Fox), to covertly investigate the looming question hanging over the country: should the Japanese Emperor, worshiped by his people but accused of war crimes, be punished or saved? Caught between the high-wire political intrigue of his urgent mission and his own impassioned search for the mysterious school teacher (Hatsune) who first drew him to Japan, Fellers can be certain only that the tricky subterfuge about to play out will forever change the history of two nations and his heart.” (Roadside Attractions) Click HERE to visit the official site.
