  1. One of my faves of the year so far. Maybe my top.
  2. Chappaquiddick - July 18, 1969. Title card at the beginning. about 0:45 Teddy reads aloud his statement that includes the date. Toward the end Teddy's TV announcement that includes the date. There are various newspapers with events of the Apollo mission that is taking place and TV coverage, but the dates are pretty hard to see
  3. Many years ago there was a thread (now read only) on Open Theism. Here's a podcast that would have fit well there. https://homebrewedchristianity.com/2017/10/09/teamprocess-vs-teamopentheism-live-from-st-paul/
  4. Loving Vencent - Newspaper clipping concerning Van Gogh's death has dateline of July 27
  5. Stronger - has a few shots of Gyllenhaal's character wearing wristbands with April 15, 2013.
  6. Trying to track down 3 owners from last years league to see if they are in. Thomas B, Charles, Paul Anderson. If you're here please go to the league home page and leave a message so we know you're in or not. We need to know if we need replacements before draft time.
  7. The Fencer - note card at end tells us that Stalin died March 5, 1953, which allowed prisoners to begin being released.
  8. Paris, Texas - When Ann tells Travis about Jane's deposits into bank accounts, he asks what the date is today. Answer: First of Novemeber
  9. The Happiest Day in the Life of Olli Maki - August 17 (1962) is mentioned 3 times through the film.
  10. Brave New Jersey - Oct. 30, 1938. A title card at the beginning, then immediately after a newspaper with that date. Heaven's Floor - April 23. When Julia tries to get a plane ticket, the counter person tells her there's nothing available until Apr. 23.
  11. The Promise about 20 minutes in: Oct 29, 1914, Turkey enters the war near the end a note that on Sept 12, 1915 the French navy rescued Armenians
  12. The Zookeeper's Wife: Sept 1, 1939 (date superimposed on screen)- War begins Aug. 5, 1942 (date superimposed in screen) - Jews to Ghetto April 19, 1943 (date spoken on radio) - extermination of Ghetto. Passover

    I'll just say that at this early point in the year, Frantz is my film to beat. The playing around between B&W and color was effective. I see why this won Cesar for Cinematography. The story is really well done and brings us questions of truth and lies in a wonderful way.
  14. One slot available if you want in go to https://yho.com/mlb?l=12041&k=30af1e9f822526ad&soc_trk=lnk&ikey=9be8a85fac369e8d
  15. Frantz - 15 September - the big reveal that happens about 1/2 way through (c. 0:50)
  16. Before I Fall - takes place (over and over) on Feb 12 and 13. The date comes up on Sam's phone often throughout the movie at 6:30 am Feb 12, and 12:38,39 Feb 13
  17. Life Feels Good: June 4: TV news report on elections in Poland (in the chapter entitled "Wizard" Aug. 11 - near the end.
  18. A couple from Oscar nominated shorts: Pear Cider and Cigarettes (animated short) - early on it shows a date on screen (perhaps a chapter title) April 17. (Ron, the guys from Vancouver, you can get this from him, right?) Timecode (live action) - involves a bunch of security cameras with time codes (and imputs of dates into the computer to see film from those camera.). starts with 5/14/16, also 5/15, 5/16, 5/30
  19. Arrival is a better version of The Day the Earth Stood Still (and I liked the original Day)
  20. Secret of the Kells is a better version of Moana.
  21. Winter Sleep - Feb 4. Ron, I think you're going to like this one. at about the 160 minute mark, there is a scene with a calendar in the background showing the months of Ocak and Subat. Subat 4 has a red box around it. (there is, btw another one page/day calendar in the room that confirms it is the 4th of Subat.) Now one could search on line for the Turkish name of months, but if you pay attention you will note that Ocak has 31 days, and Subat has 28. Ergo...
  22. From Loving: When they are charged with their crime it states the date they were married is June 2, 1958. There is also a shot of the marriage license, but I think the date is too small to be useful. From Miss Sloane: The date of the opening Senate committee hearing is shown onscreen as April 18. During the questioning the Senator refers to her actions on Oct. 12. The final hearing is April 28.
  23. Elle - Michele gets a text on her phone that shows a date 15 December (except it's in French)
