Golden Globe Foreign-Language Nominee Series


Some films in this series take place at the Aero Theatre!

View Full Schedule of Golden Globe Screenings

Co-presented with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association

In early 1944, a number of movie stars went to 20th Century Fox Studios to see what a small group of foreign journalists had found to be especially worthwhile during the preceding year. The journalists, all members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, decided that this would be a yearly event. By 1962, the general public was invited to the celebration when KTTV Los Angeles first televised the awards.

We’re happy to host this series of screenings devoted to the films and filmmakers nominated for the Golden Globe in the foreign language film category. Five films will be spotlighted. Please also join us for a free panel discussion with all the directors of the Golden Globe Foreign Language Nominees, at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood on Saturday, January 16, at 1:00 PM.

All films in original language with English subtitles.

Golden Globe Foreign-Language Nominee from France:

Sneak Preview! A PROPHET, 2009, (Un Prophete) (France), Sony Pictures Classics, 155 min. Dir. Jacques Audiard. Stunning audiences at the 2009 Cannes, Toronto, and Telluride film festivals, A Prophet tells the story of 19-year-old Malik, a young man who has just been sentenced to six years in prison. Initially less hardened than his fellow inmates, Malik is cornered by the prison's members of a Corsican gang and pressured to complete "missions" that ultimately solidify his stature as a skilled gangster. Yet while rising through the ranks of the gang, Malik makes plans of his own. Justin Chang of Variety writes that A Prophet is "a tough, absorbingly intricate account of a young French-Arab thug's improbable education behind bars." Trailer
