Q Cinema's Movies at The Modern: Double Take Film Series will feature the following films:

  • June 23: Call Me By Your Name - The new film by Luca Guadagnino is a sensual and transcendent tale of first love, based on the acclaimed novel by André Aciman. It's the summer of 1983 in the north of Italy, and Elio Perlman (Timothée Chalamet), a precocious 17- year-old American-Italian, spends his days in his family's 17th century villa transcribing and playing classical music, reading, and flirting with his friend Marzia (Esther Garrel). Elio enjoys a close relationship with his father (Michael Stuhlbarg), an eminent professor specializing in Greco-Roman culture, and his mother Annella (Amira Casar), a translator, who favor him with the fruits of high culture in a setting that overflows with natural delights. While Elio's sophistication and intellectual gifts suggest he is already a fully-fledged adult, there is much that yet remains innocent and unformed about him, particularly about matters of the heart. One day, Oliver (Armie Hammer), a charming American scholar working on his doctorate, arrives as the annual summer intern tasked with helping Elio's father. Amid the sun-drenched splendor of the setting, Elio and Oliver discover the heady beauty of awakening desire over the course of a summer that will alter their lives forever.
  • July 21: Apricot Groves (Q19 double award winner for Best Drama and Best First Time Film) - Aram, an Iranian-Armenian youth who has immigrated to the U.S. in childhood, returns to Armenia for the first time to propose to an Armenian girlfriend Aram met and lived with in the U.S. Aram sees many cultural, religious, and national differences on the one day trip, but harder obstacles are ahead.
  • August 18: The Lavender Scare (Q19 Best Documentary winner) - With the United States gripped in the panic of the Cold War, President Dwight D. Eisenhower deems homosexuals to be “security risks” and orders the immediate firing of any government employee discovered to be gay or lesbian. It triggers a vicious witch hunt that ruins tens of thousands of lives and thrusts an unlikely hero into the forefront of what would become the modern LGBT rights movement. Featuring the voices of Glenn Close, David Hyde Pierce, Zachary Quinto, TR Knight, and Cynthia Nixon, The Lavender Scare shines a light on a forgotten episode in American history while carrying a message that seems more relevant with each passing day. The film will be preceded by Iridescence, Q19 Best Student Short.
