Arbitrage

Susan Sarandon and Richard Gere in "Arbitrage." — Myles Aronowitz

A crackling suspense thriller about high finance, Arbitrage (releasing on Sept. 14) will be shown Saturday morning at 9. Starring Richard Gere as a Bernie Madoff-type schemer and Susan Sarandon as his wife, the film offers a realistic, compelling portrait of America's modern-day high-stakes trading world. At noon, attendees can catch a prerelease screening of The Oranges, starring Hugh Laurie, Catherine Keener, Allison Janney and Oliver Platt. The comedy-drama, which opens nationwide on Oct. 5, follows two families who live across the street from one another and enjoy a close friendship until the 20-something daughter of the Ostroffs (Platt and Janney) returns home and begins an affair with her parents' best friend and neighbor, David Walling (Laurie).

The festival will conclude with a 3 p.m. screening of the humorous flash-back documentary Paul Williams Still Alive. In it, director Stephen Kessler tracks down the man behind such 1970s musical hits as "We've Only Just Begun" and "Evergreen." While Williams was a celebrity in his own right at the height of his career, frequently appearing as a guest on Johnny Carson's couch, he became something of a recluse in recent years. Kessler finds out why — and reacquaints us with the fascinating Williams, and his music. Paul Williams, along with Kessler, will take questions from the audience after the film.
