Travel back to midcentury France with Love Street, Patrice Leconte's gentle tale of a prostitute and the sweet, lovelorn young handyman who tries to boost her singing career. Enjoy the nuanced cinematography and period-piece beauty of the respected director's romance. The screening will be preceded by French wine, cheese, and treats, plus a talk on "Three French Couples Who Changed History." (We imagine some of those are more romantic than others—Marie and Pierre Curie versus Josephine and Napoleon? Just a guess.) You'll leave refreshed, educated, and full of fuzzy feelings.
