"Renoir" at The Grand

In the bio-doc "Renoir," the elderly painter Auguste Renoir finds inspiration in a new model.

Perhaps The Grand Cinema missed a good bet by not scheduling Renoir - part of their Tuesday Film Series - on Father's Day instead.  It is the story of a father after all, Impressionist painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and his relationship with his middle son, Jean. It's also the story of a free-spirited girl who was one of the elder Renoir's last models. Her youth and beauty inspired both men.

Based on real events, Renoir takes place in 1915, when the 74-year-old painter brings his latest muse, Andree Heuschling, to his South of France estate. Jean returns home to convalesce after being wounded in the war, and becomes enchanted with her. An aspiring actress, Andree encourages him to pursue filmmaking. As a result, he not only became a internationally recognized film director, but married the girl as well.

Thanks, dad!

RENOIR, 1:40 and 6:30 p.m., Tuesday, June 18, The Grand Cinema, 606 S. Fawcett Ave., Tacoma, $4.50-$9, 253.593.4474
