"Intrigue, love, rivalry, and politics..." = A Most Wanted Man!

This Sunday will be our earliest gathering yet! The show starts at 11:35; please arrive around 11:10 (the MeetUp program doesn't allow me to be that specific).  The film is 2 hours long which should get us out around 1:45. Restaurant will be group choice.

So far we have returning movie goers and a first-timer. Robin, if you need info on how to find us, take a look at earlier postings or send me email.

Smiles,

Libby

We need a thriller in our movie line-up, folks. The cast is great — Seymour Hoffman, Rachel McAdams, Robin Wright and Willem Dafoe — and subject timely:


"When a half-Chechen, half-Russian, brutally tortured immigrant turns up in Hamburg's Islamic community, laying claim to his father's ill-gotten fortune, both German and US security agencies take a close interest: as the clock ticks down and the stakes rise, the race is on to establish this most wanted man's true identity - oppressed victim or destruction-bent extremist? 

Based on John le Carré's novel, A MOST WANTED MAN is a contemporary, cerebral tale of intrigue, love, rivalry, and politics that prickles with tension right through to its last heart-stopping scene." (from movie site)

The theaters usually announce weekend showtimes on Tuesdays. I'll post the location in a few days, but count on the first showing at either the San Mateo or RWC theater.

    I am looking forward to joining you. it is just that I have a long-time movie buddy who has superceded the elected films on a few occasions. However, we got our fix today at "What If" so I am on for tomorrow. I'll look for the Mardi Gras beads!
