July 10 - August 31
The Tobaccanist is a tender heart-breaking drama set in the 1930’s, based on the book of the same name, about Franz, a young Austrian, sent to apprentice at a tobacco shop, who makes a mentor of an aging Sigmund Freud. His innocence slowly sheds as he falls for Anezka, a Czech émigré scraping by as an exotic dancer and escort, and as he realizes the increasing brutality of the Nazi occupation. Set against a stunning recreation of 1930’s Vienna, Franz is a metaphor for Austria, and Anezka for Europe.
This film will be available in August.
