September 05

September 5-7

Fri & Sat 7:30  Sun 1:30
Rated: R
Run Time: 2hr 44 min 


Synopsis: Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, this film is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason, who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. This drama charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before. Snapshots of adolescence from road trips and family dinners to birthdays and graduations and all the moments in between become transcendent, set to a soundtrack spanning the years from Coldplay's Yellow to Arcade Fire's Deep Blue. The film is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting. It's impossible not to watch Mason and his family without thinking about our own journey.

The band performs 18 songs, including “Hungry Like the Wolf”, “A View to Kill”, “Ordinary World” and “Rio.” Also appearing are Gerard Way of My Chemical Romance, The Gossip’s Beth Ditto, Mark Ronson and Kelis. Directed with a kinetic visual intensity that makes it easily recognizable as a David Lynch creation, Duran Duran Unstaged is quite unlike any concert-doc experience ever put on screen. Duran Duran Unstaged is a dream collaboration that presents the band’s energy and Lynch’s playful interventions on the grand scale they so uniquely merit.
