Only RSVP if you are genuinely interested in attending. No shows and late drop outs will be recorded.
Date: Sunday 14 July 2013
Time: Meet at 10.00am for the 10.15AM session. Look out for my Meet Up badge on a table opposite the ticket booth.
A note to our new members: We buy our tickets individually at the desk (or online if you wish). We're in Cinema 1 (the big one - but this could change between now and then) and there is no reserve seating. We may not be able to all sit together and usually end up in clusters. I encourage you to join the group after the film as our discussions are fun, interesting and insightful.
Post Film Discussion:Cafe Excello at 99 Spring Street. Please bring cash
If you don't answer the lunch question when you RSVP, I'll assume you won't be joining us. "Maybe" will also be considered a no.
Could you please update your rsvp if you don’t intend to come to lunch as it is unfair to the restaurant if less people turn up than expected. Last minute drop outs on Saturday night and Sunday morning, and not showing up is not very nice, so please be considerate (I keep a list of offenders!).
You are most welcome to join us for the film only, but please let me know so I can adjust our restaurant booking.

Synopsis: "Featuring one of the most star-studded (and talented) casts assembled in modern Spanish cinema, including the phenomenal Ricardo Darín, Javier Cámara, Leonor Watling, Luis Tosar, Eduardo Noriega, Candela Peña and Leonardo Sbaraglia, A GUN IN EACH HAND (Una pistola en cada mano) is a witty and scathing portrait of forty-something manhood, and its shifting role in contemporary Barcelona.
Chance encounters between old friends, acquaintances, ex-spouses and potential lovers form an engrossing series of six intertwined tales of love, lost and found. Whether it’s Javier Camara’s character’s sorry efforts to win back his ex-wife, Eduardo Noriega’s misguided attempts to woo a co-worker, or Ricardo Darin’s confusion as to why his wife would be having an affair, each meeting starts off with men humbly attempting to secure what they want, and invariably winding up completely bewildered as the women in their lives mercilessly flip the situations around.
This superbly accomplished battle-of-the-sexes comedy was a sleeper breakout success at the Spanish box office last December, celebrated its Australian Premiere at the Gala Openings of the recent 16th Spanish Film Festival and confirms writer/director Cesc Gay as one of the country’s brightest talents."
