CFC Screening of "Daddy's Little Girls" & "Love & Basketball" on Fri 8th Mar

  • March 8, 2013 · 7:15 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

A new venue for us to meetup in near Bank station. It's a private members club with a screening room and seating for up to 50 Caramel Film Club Members and at 7.15 we will be holding a screening of:

"Daddy's Little Girls" starring Idris Elba, Gabrielle Union, China Anne McClain, Tasha Smith and Tracee Ellis Ross

"Monty (Idris Elba) is struggling mechanic and single father of three from a poor neighborhood. Upon learning that custody of his beloved daughters has been awarded to his morally bankrupt, drug-dealing ex-wife Jennifer (Tasha Smith), desperate Monty enlists the aid of beautiful Ivy league-educated lawyer Julia (Gabrielle Union) -- whom he recently met during his brief stint as a chauffeur -- in ensuring that his daughters remain with him in a stable and loving environment. Despite the vast social and economical differences that divide them, Monty and Julia soon begin to find themselves unexpectedly falling in love with one another as they work together to save Monty's daughters from a life of crime and corruption. Now, in order to reconcile their blossoming romance and overcome the forces that threaten to destroy the only thing that Monty holds dear, the concerned father and powerful lawyer will have to bridge the gap that divides them by coming together to prove that true love really does have the power to prevail"

 

There'll be a chance to chill after the film and enjoy some of the drinks and cocktails. (Plus a possibility of a game or two of pool too)

Then at 9.25pm we will screen "Love & Basketball" starring Omar Epps and Sanaa Lathan

"A young African-American couple navigates the tricky paths of romance and athletics in this drama. Quincy McCall (Omar Epps) and Monica Wright (Sanaa Lathan) grew up in the same neighborhood and have known each other since childhood. As they grow into adulthood, they fall in love, but they also share another all-consuming passion: basketball. They've followed the game all their lives and have no small amount of talent on the court. As Quincy and Monica struggle to make their relationship work, they follow separate career paths though high school and college basketball and, they hope, into stardom in big-league professional ball."

All you need to do is simply RSVP with payment to secure a seat!

Peace & Love

    A very enjoyable evening! I was a little disappointed that the Love and Basketball was not shown in full widescreen. No dramas though it didn't detract from a lovely evening. Thanks for organising a fun evening in a classy venue!

    My first meet up.... The venue was very pleasant, central and easy to get to (seats in the screening room could have been a little more comfy though) but both films were very enjoyable.
    Dave is an excellent host
