It has been a long time since Woody Allen starred in a film he's not directed, but here he is in John Turturro's "Fading Gigolo" in the lead....
Murray is going-out-of-business as a New York bookseller, and is pals with Fioranvante, who runs a modest florist shop. When Murray's beautiful dermatologist Dr. Parker mentions she's looking for a man to participate in a threesome with her and her equally gorgeous friend Selima, Murray recognizes the financial potential of this proposal and sets about convincing Fioravante to consummate the deal.
Tuturro's talents as both writer and director mix well with his acting, and we find here a story of both comedy and commerce, intimacy and wit. To view the trailer and a synopsis, click on this link: Fading Gigolo - Web site
We'll be doing the 4:30 showing, and Iwill be in the lobby by 4:15 (I'll comfirm the showtime by email on Friday).
Dinner/discussion will be at Yanni's, just south of the theater in Landmark Square. Their food and excellent service last time we went deserves our patronage.
Please keep your RSVP current. If your plans change or your friend can't come, update it so I have an accurate count for the restaurant....PLEASE!!
