ASGAR FARHADI FILM
Once again, the Cinematheque must have read
my mind as they are doing a retrospective on filmmaker Asghar Farhadi. In addition to his
Oscar-winning "A Separation", he has made 4 other films. Interestingly,
none are on Netflicks and as a matter of fact, other than New York, only
Cleveland will have shown all of his films by end of May. Our
group is scheduled to see a few but if you would like to organize one of his
other films, let me know. Here is when they are
in the Dust - May 3,6
Wednesday - May 18 - Lynda is organizing this
Elly - May 25 (at the Art Museum)
Separation - June 1,2
will be seeing "A Beautiful City" on Sunday, May 13 at 6:30 PM. It follows
the story of a 16 year old who is accused of murder and who is dependent on an
ex-con who has information that could prove his innocence. Should be a
great film to see.
MOVIES THIS WEEK
You still have a few hours before "We Have
a Pope" at 4:45 this afternoon. This Italian film has plenty of heart and
Tuesday, join the group to see "Footnote", which
itself might have won the best picture if "A Separation" wasn't in the
running. If you plan to have dinner with us at Dewey's, be sure to arrive
on time with cash in hand.
ALWAYS LOOKING FOR
While I appreciate all the people who help
organize events, I am always looking for others to lead an event. It is
really quite easy and you get to pick the movie, time, place and eats place
too. If you would like to help out, please let me know. Granted, the
perks are limited (perhaps a free movie from time to time), but you would really
be helping everyone out.
Please give this consideration.
If you have already paid, thank you very much and
no need to look further.
Otherwise, your dues of
$5.00 are very important in order for us to host directors coming into
town and pay for the website. Please select the link or pay your organizer
AT THE NEXT GROUP EVENT if you haven't already.
