July Movies at the American Center
July 14: Patton (1970)
critically acclaimed film that won a total of eight 1970 Academy Awards
(Including Best Picture), Patton is a riveting portrait of one of the
20th century's greatest military geniuses. One of its Oscars went to
George Patton, the only Allied general truly feared by the Nazis.
Charismatic and flamboyant, Patton designed his own uniforms, sported
ivory handled six-shooters, and believed he was a warrior in past lives.
But he was rebellious as well as brilliant, and as Patton shows with
insight and poignancy, his own volatile personality was one enemy he
could never defeat.
July 21: Rocky (2004)
the film that inspired a nation! Audiences and critics alike cheered
this American success story of an "everyman" triumphing over all odds.
Featuring a dynamic musical score, a thrilling fight sequence and four
Oscar- nominated performances, this rousing crowd-pleaser will send
spirits soaring. Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) is a Philadelphia
club fighter who seems to be going nowhere. But when a stroke of fate
puts him in the ring with a world heavyweight champion, Rocky knows that
it's his one shot at the big time - a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to
go the distance and come out a winner!
July 28: The Great Gatsby (1974)
'20s never roared louder than in this sumptuously romantic retelling of
F. Scott Fitzgerald's Jazz Age classic. Robert Redford stars as Jay
Gatsby, who had once loved beautiful, spoiled Daisy Buchanan (Mia
Farrow), then lost her to a rich boy. But now Gatsby is mysteriously
wealthy...and ready to risk everything to woo Daisy back.
