From Britain With Love


Zeitgeist hosts a slate of new independent British films curated by the Film Society of Lincoln Center, the UK Film Council and Emerging Pictures. The lineup includes Toast (9:30 p.m. July 1-2), starring Helena Bonham Carter, based on foodwriter Nigel Slater's account of his childhood infatuation with food and his family's suspicions regarding it. Africa United (7:30 p.m., July 1-2) is a quirky and upbeat film (for audiences 12 and up) about kids in Rwanda who undertake their own whimsically cursed trek to attend the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. A Boy Called Dad (7:30 p.m. July 3 & 5) is about a 14-year-old boy who tries to live up to the demands of being a father at a young age. The readjustment to civilian life is the subject of In Our Name (9:30 p.m. July 3 & 5), in which a female soldier returns from the Iraq War and finds her relationship with her daughter strained. Third Star (7:30 p.m. July 6-7) follows a young man's last hurrah with his best friends as he battles cancer. The original slate also included NEDS, which previously ran at Zeitgeist. Each film runs for two nights only. Tickets $7, $6 students/seniors, $5 Zeitgeist members. — Will Coviello
