The Secret of Kells @ E Street Cinema 3:35pm; meet at 3:15pm

Please be sure to join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club, this Sunday, Apr 11 at 3:15 pm, for "The Secret of Kells" at the Landmark E Street Cinema. Look for Craig, wearing a black baseball cap with an orange P, in the upstairs lobby (behind the ticket counter) about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment (probably Fadó to keep in theme with the film) for dinner/drinks/discussion. Nominated for the Academy Award for best animated feature film of the year 2009. From Google Movies:
Young Brendan [Evan McGuire] lives in the Abbey of Kells, a remote medieval outpost under siege from raiding barbarians. One day, a master illuminator arrives from foreign lands carrying an ancient but unfinished book, brimming with secret wisdom and powers. To help complete the magical book, Brendan has to overcome his deepest fears on a dangerous quest that takes him into the enchanted forest, where mythical creatures hide. It is here that he meets the fairy Aisling [Christen Mooney], a mysterious young wolf-girl, who helps him along the way. But with the barbarians closing in, will Brendan's determination and artistic vision illuminate the darkness and show that enlightenment is the best fortification against evil? The film also stars Brendan Gleeson who appeared as Mad-Eye Moody in the Harry Potter films.

    A great animated film about the quest for hidden knowledge, and the
    struggle to preserve it from barbarism..

    First time with the Sunday Night Film Club. I enjoyed the experience. Everyone was pretty laid back, and it was a good experience to see a film with a group of people and discuss it after.
