No The Movie & Busboys and Poets

When Chilean military dictator Augusto Pinochet, facing international pressure, calls for a referendum on his presidency in 1988, opposition leaders persuade a brash young advertising executive, Rene Saavedra (Gael Garcia Bernal), to spearhead their campaign. With scant resources and constant scrutiny by the despot’s watchmen, Saavedra and his team devise an audacious plan to win the election and free their country from oppression.

This film was nominated for an Academy Award - Best Foreign Film (2013). Certified Fresh (92%) by Rotten Tomatoes. Please note this is a Spanish language film with English subtitles.

I will be waiting in the lobby area from 3:35-3:45 PM; I will be wearing a Meetup button.

If attendees are so inclined, we will meet after the movie at Busboys and Poets Shirlington. Please indicate in your RSVP whether you will be joining us at Busboys and Poets.

    Movie was good ito subject ,a bit too long and not polished but interesting nonetheless. I stayed with 2 other members at Busboys; Capital City is a good choice for a big group tho. Sorry we split off ; nothing personal ! :-)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
