Indie Film Intimate Night (IFIN), presents
Some dead people are hard to ditch. Some leave for many years before returning. Director Pedro Almodovar sprinkles a mostly lighthearted tale with some grave moments as he explores the unfinished business in the lives of his characters. This magical, tragicomic melodrama may be Almodovar's most restrained work to date, but it still features his trademarks: a strong attention to color and detail, a celebration of the trials and tribulations of women, and, of course, the inestimable Carmen Maura. The lovely Penelope Cruz hasn't shone more brightly as she does here.
(R 121 minutes)
The usual IFIN details:
Doors open at 7PM. Movie begins between 7:30 & 7:45.
This event is quasi-potluck. That means you're welcome to bring food and drink for yourself or to share. If you bring something to share, please bring service items too (like platter or bowl, and serving utensils) or give us a heads up about the service items you'll need. If you bring something for yourself, avoid putting it on the big table where the shared food will be and where we'll have plates, napkins, cups, and eating utensils for all.
Release of Liability:
By attending this event you are agreeing to be responsible for your own actions, and you are agreeing that you won't hold the hosts or the group organizers liable for neglect if harm comes to you due to the actions of another person.
NO SHOWS WON'T BE TOLERATED.
Before you start your journey to the meetup, be very sure that you have good directions, a charged cell phone, & our contact number (you'll be sent that # along with the IFIN address via email the night before the event). If you'll be using a GPS device and it's something other than Garmin's brand or Verizon's App, double check that it locates the same place as Google or Yahoo Maps does (WARNING: Magellan has hijacked its users to a place very far away from my address). If you fail to change your RSVP prior to the event, or fail to contact us if you need help finding us, it will all but ruin your chances of being included in a future IFIN event.
Due to the limited number of spaces at IFIN events, some filtering of attendees is practiced. If you haven't previously attended an event in this home, before you do, you will be required to answer the questions in your San Jose Indie Film Meetup group profile along with the questions that appear for the private-home/IFIN event.
