We Won't Grow Old Together

October 1 to October 12

The movie camera, a microscope attuned to tracking minute shifts in feeling, is an instrument uniquely equipped to capture the faltering early moments of love in first flush. It can be just as effective, however, in picking up on the tiny cracks in the façade that precede an old love coming to pieces. It’s such works, made up of sly aggressions, spectacular blow-ups, reticent reconciliations, and (sometimes) fresh starts, that make up this wide-ranging series of divorce-themed movies—films that explore the nausea of abandonment, the exhilaration of new freedom, the midnight pangs of regret, and all of the mixed, muddled emotions that lay in-between.
