(1959) dir Robert Bresson w/Martin LaSalle [75 min; 35mm; in French with English subtitles]
PICKPOCKET is one of the great Robert Bresson’s best-known and most important films. It tells the tale of Michel, a bored and self-centered man who takes up picking pockets almost as a hobby and winds up finding it the only thing in his life with any meaning. A powerful and moving portrait of a man searching for answers in a world where none may exist.

Brattle passes accepted.

Dear Brattle Friends,

You guys continue to humble and amaze us with your outpouring of support!

Thanks to you, we have now raised more than $35,000 from over 400 individual donors!

Thank you for helping to keep our staff paid and The Brattle alive during this scary time.

I hope that you are all feeling healthy.

As we remain closed, our preliminary goal is to raise four weeks of operating support, or $65,000, to ensure we can continue to pay all of our staff, and other overhead through April 7. As things develop, our timeline for being closed and fundraising goal may change, but our ultimate goal of re-opening The Brattle stays firm.

With your help, this goal will become a reality.

Stay healthy,

Ivy, Ned & The Brattle Theatre Team
