Kelly and Cal


You can purchase your ticket in advance by using this link: Arena Cinema - Kelly & Cal  (Although it's not reserved seating, I'd recommend purchasing a tic in advance as this event could sell-out.)

Winner SXSW 2014 GameChanger Award

Starring: Juliette Lewis, Jonny Weston

Josh Hopkins, Margaret Colin & Cybill Shepherd 

Punk-rocker turned suburban mom, Kelly (Juliette Lewis), is nostalgic for a life she can no longer have and uncertain of a future she doesn't yet fit in.  Seventeen-year-old Cal (Jonny Weston) is frustrated at his lack of control over the hand he's been dealt.  When the two strike up an unlikely friendship, it's the perfect spark needed to thrust them both back to life.  

Directed by Jen McGowan

Written by Amy Lowe Starbin

Produced by Adi Ezroni & Mandy Tagger Brockey

A Spring Pictures Production, Released by IFC Films

    It was a wonderful evening. The movie was wonderful and the conversation was something I really needed. Thanks ladies for a great night.

    Solid indie film about neighbors facing their own life challenges who form an unlikely and confusing romantic bond. Believable and well drawn performances by Lewis and Weston. Agree with Tabetha that the theater was perfect setting. And, I also enjoyed seeing the writer talk about the film. Most worthwhile for me-- we sat in Sadie's for a good couple of hours talking about the piece afterwards. It was great to hear what everyone thought.

    What a great event! Loved the intimate theater setting and post-mortem conversation! I found it interesting to have the screenwriter being interviewed.

      I'm more accustomed to going to film festivals with director panels and q+a. I'm just getting familiar with the different roles in the film industry so seeing an actor and screenwriter seemed very instead of a director, was cool and different. Thanks. Also, for heading the group today!

    I'll attending this event and I am happy to connect with those folks who are. Seats are not reserved so I'm also happy to save us some seats so we can all sit together. Please send me a direct message (asap) letting me know you'll be there and your phone number so I can text you to let you know where I am. Maybe we can grab a coffee/beer afterwards and talk about the film, too.

    Sorry you cannot be there Amelia. We will miss you!!!
