The Wheeler Film Society has eight films on its November calendar at the Wheeler Opera House, starting with today’s opening of “Happily Ever After.”

A French romantic comedy, “Happily Ever After” was screened last month by Aspen Filmfest.

Filmfest offered this synopsis:

Showing on the heels of the French film will be “Deep Blue,” an oceanographic documentary adapted for the big screen from the seven-hour TV miniseries “The Blue Planet.” It runs Saturday through Monday, Nov. 5-7.

“The Inheritance,” a drama of romance, family and money by Danish director Per Fly, shows Nov. 8-9. “Heights,” a survey of the interlocking lives of a group of New Yorkers over the course of a day, and featuring Glenn Close, George Segal, Isabella Rossellini and Eric Bogosian, will be screened Nov. 11-13.

First-time director Julian Fellowes’ thriller-like drama of deception, “Separate Lies,” starring Tom Wilkinson, Emily Watson and Rupert Everett, is set for Nov. 14-16. “Cote D’Azur,” a lighthearted farce about youthful sexual exploits on the French Riviera, shows Nov. 18-20.

“The Beautiful Country,” which traces a Vietnamese man’s journey from his native village to a Texas ranch, gets encore screenings Nov. 21 and 23.

The November schedule concludes Nov. 26-30 with the documentary “Grizzly Man,” about Timothy Treadwell’s life and death among Alaska’s brown bears.

All Wheeler Films begin at 7:30 p.m.
