Hi all,

For this Tuesday, let's see OBVIOUS CHILD.

The movie is running 87% on rottentomatoes.com with audience reaction at 77% (as of Jul.08), who write: "Tackling a sensitive subject with maturity, honesty, and wit, Obvious Child serves as a deeply promising debut for writer-director Gillian Robespierre."

IMDB writes: "A twenty-something comedienne's unplanned pregnancy forces her to confront the realities of independent womanhood for the first time."

The film won a Red Crown Producer's Award at Sundance, and both the debut writer-director (Robespierre) and the Lead Actress (Jenny Slate) have been nominated for awards for this film at other festivals.

SHOWTIME:  7:50 pm on Tuesday July 15 at Cineplex Varsity and VIP.  (movie length = 1h25m)

MEETUP TIME:  7:25 pm - 7:40 pm

MEETUP LOCATION:  At the Cineplex Cinemas Varsity & VIP cinema, beside the customer service desk, located just behind the ticket takers. I will have a sign that says, "Tuesday Night at the Movies".

TICKETS: This movie costs just $7.99 (or $7.19 with a Scene card).

    What a surprise! Great film...it was very touching and sincere. I was impressed with this director's (Gillian Robespierre) first feature length film. Nice choice Zvi, this is something I wouldn't have seen on my own, love Tuesday Night at the Movies for this.

    Good to see everyone who came. Always happy when my concerns about a movie turn out to be unnecessary. Solid flic that surprised me. For me, it was one of the better ones I've seen this year, and, for me, definitely one of the better ones dealing with that subject matter.
