Michel Houellebecq is one of France’s most controversial authors, in large part due to his frequent antagonizing of the Islamic religion. At one point in 2011, he failed to make several scheduled appearances, leading to speculation that he had been abducted. This comedy imagines that he was indeed kidnapped by a hapless collection of criminals. Houellebecq plays himself during this metafictional ordeal, getting to know his kidnappers and making dry jokes.

This unforgettable comedy-adventure centers on the most unlikely of protagonists: 100-year-old Allan Karlsson (Robert Gustafsson), who flees his nursing home and finds himself rather obliviously on the run from some vicous mobsters. This is not the first time he’s been caught in the middle of some big action, however—frequent flashbacks to his earlier life show him caught up in major world events and getting into comic hijinks with historical figures ranging from Albert Einstein to Josef Stalin. It’s a lot like Forrest Gump, but with deadpan humor and distinctly European flavor.

One of the best movies of the 2000s was this intimate yet explosive indie film shot right here in midcoast Maine. Tom Wilkinson and Sissy Spacek star as a couple whose son (Nick Stahl) begins dating an older, soon-to-be-divorced woman (Marisa Tomei) with a jealous husband. The affair sparks a chain of events that will forever change the lives of everyone involved. This film, directed by Todd Field and based on a story by Andre Dubus, was nominated for five Academy Awards in 2002. Don’t miss this chance to see it on the big screen once more.
