Directed by Michael Winterbottom
Starring Steve Coogan, Rob Brydon, Rosie Fellner
English
1 hr 47 mins

Michael Winterbottom’s largely improvised 2010 film, The Trip, took comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon—or semifictionalized versions thereof—on a restaurant tour around northern England. In this witty and incisive follow-up, Winterbottom reunites the pair for a new culinary road trip, retracing the steps of the Romantic poets’ grand tour of Italy and indulging in some sparkling banter and impersonation-offs. Rewhetting our palates from the earlier film, the characters enjoy mouthwatering meals in gorgeous settings from Liguria to Capri while riffing on subjects as varied as Batman’s vocal register, the artistic merits of “Jagged Little Pill,” and, of course, the virtue of sequels.

The Our Health Film & Discussion Series is offered jointly by Mid Coast Hospital and Access Health (A Local Healthy Maine Partnership), featuring films that shine a spotlight on important health topics for the Midcoast region.


Through the five shorts named after each title character -- Lucy, Eddie, Allison, Grace, and Maggie - powerful relationships built on hope and triumph raise a new understanding of what happens when a loved one struggles with mental illness.


Written by Deirdre O’Connor and directed by Bryce Dallas Howard, "Lucy" follows the film’s title character, a law student who finds herself amidst the horror of schizophrenia, landing her in an institution where, through the support of a new friend, meds and her psychotherapist, she begins her path to not only healing, but a promising future. "Lucy" also features Clint Howard.

"Grace," directed by Laura Dern and written by Howard J. Morris, explores bipolar disorder through the experience of a teenage daughter whose mother grapples with the condition. Also starring in "Grace" are Melissa Farman and Aimee Teegarden.

"Allison" weaves together comedy and family drama in a story about healing when its eldest daughter "Lucy" returns home from inpatient treatment and spoils her sister "Allison's" unveiling of her new boyfriend to their parents."Allison," also featuring Ken Baumann, was written by Jan Oxenberg and is directed by Sharon Maguire.

"Eddie," directed by Bonnie Hunt and written by Stephan Godchaux, delves into the world of depression as seen through the eyes of a comedian’s wife as she grapples with understanding how her husband Eddie, whom is so loved, can be so withdrawn and overcome with sadness. The short also stars Chelsea Handler and features appearances by Dave Foley, Jay Chandrasekhar, James Avery and Ross Mathews.

In "Maggie," penned by Erin Cressida Wilson and directed by Ashley Judd, a female veteran returns home from war to her son and father, only to have her life shattered by the onset of posttraumatic stress disorder, through which her lawyer, “Lucy,” helps her. Melanie Griffith also stars in "Maggie."

English
Rated PG

PUMP is an inspiring, eye-opening documentary that tells the story of America’s addiction to oil, from its corporate conspiracy beginnings to its current monopoly today, and explains clearly and simply how we can end it – and finally win choice at the pump. Today oil is our only option of transportation fuel at the pump. Our exclusive use of it has drained our wallets, increased air pollution and sent our sons and daughters to war in faraway lands. PUMP shows us how through the use of a variety of replacement fuels, we will be able to fill up our cars – cheaper, cleaner and American made – and in the process, create more jobs for a stronger, healthier economy. The film features notable experts such as John Hofmeister, former President of Shell Oil US; Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla Motors; Peter Goldmark, former president of the Rockefeller Foundation; and other noteworthy figures who share their passionate views and knowledge. Right now we have the ability to change our country’s future, but we never knew it. Aren’t we tired of being taken for a ride? PUMP is the movie that could change that.
