Short Term 12 (2013) at 6:10 p.m.; Fido's after - meetup on Tuesday now

I may have to move this meetup to Tuesday.  Will update and email everyone tomorrow.  I closed to rsvps until the date is firm.

Director Cretton reconfigures his Sundance award-winning short of the same name into a feature film starring Brie Larson as Grace, a tough but compassionate supervisor at a foster care facility for at-risk teens. When a troubled girl arrives, Grace finds a strong connection and an emboldening challenge—and, at the same time, is slow to reconcile the situation with her long-term boyfriend and co-worker Mason (John Gallagher Jr.) Winner of both the Grand Jury and Audience Awards at this year’s SXSW Film Festival (a rare feat in the film festival world), SHORT TERM 12 shows an earnest degree of heartwarming authenticity while signaling a star turn for Brie Larson.  Dir. Destin Daniel Cretton, USA, 2013, 96 min., R, DCP

Discussion at Fido's after for those interested. It's across from Boscos and Sam's.

Parking information:

—Parking's always free in the Belcourt's lot when you're attending a movie (and do note that meters in Hillsboro Village are free on weekends, because there are times the Belcourt lot is completely full). However, you will need to get a parking pass.

—If you buy your ticket online and choose the "print at home" option, you'll have a parking pass attached to your ticket.

—If you buy your ticket at the box office, the Belcourt will actually give you a pass you can put on your dashboard (so you don't have to go back to the paystation and enter a code).

Derek will be in the lobby seated at a table at 6:00 p.m. until 6:10 p.m.  If you don't spot us or arrive later, call or text me at [masked]. I'll come out to the lobby and show you where we are sitting at.

“His dialogue is wondrously energized… Cretton sees his protagonists through the eyes of the teens and gets to the ineffable core of trust.” —Richard Brody, New Yorker

“Larson's performance is something of a quiet revelation, and the same could be said of the film itself.” —William Goss, Film.com

      Liz. I'm sorry for the time change. I'll be happy to reimburse you for the cost of the ticket the next time I see you. If you're not working, please join us Tuesday. I can buy your ticket for that showing. I try not to schedule meetups until I'm sure I can make it but something comes up once in a while.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
