Off the Beaten Path series concludes this weekend


The Latchis Theatre's December Off the Beaten Path film series concludes this weekend with "Coming Home," which will be shown this Saturday and Sunday, at 4 p.m.

Off the Beaten Path, presented in collaboration with the Brattleboro Film Festival, showcases great recent films which might have slipped under the radar – but shouldn't have.

In "Coming Home." Lu Yanshi (Chen Daoming) and Feng Wanyu (Gong Li) are a devoted couple forced to separate when Lu is arrested and sent to a labor camp as a political prisoner just as his wife is injured in an accident. Released from prison during the last days of the Cultural Revolution, he finally returns home only to find that his beloved wife has amnesia and remembers little of her past. Unable to recognize Lu, she patiently waits for her husband's return. It is Rated PG-13
