Denver Film Festival #2 - Shanghai Calling

Dear Film Goers,

The Denver Film Festival presents some great films, but also many obstacles to viewing them as a group. I will be posting 3 film events during the festival. You will have to buy your tickets in advance if you want to see them as well. I will provide links to my choices so you can see if it is of interest. If there are other films that you want to see, I strongly urge you to go. We can't all make all the wonderful movies that will be available

RSVP ing will not get you a seat at the movie!

You'll need to buy your ticket before you RSVP.

Film #2 - A fish out of water story is the directorial debut of Daniel Hsia:

Sam (Daniel Henney), an American of Chinese descent, controls his universe. An aggressive New York attorney, he vies to make partner, but his bosses send him to China to open a satellite office instead. Sam packs his bags and a bad attitude for the trip.

When relocation specialist Amanda (Eliza Coupe ) meets his plane, she tries to help him adjust to culture shock. Amanda has found Sam a luxurious apartment. Only problem, it’s still under construction. Sam insults her, his new assistant Fang Fang, and basically everyone he meets. Amanda introduces him to Donald (Bill Paxton), the “mayor” of the American expatriate community, with hopes that Sam will fit in.

After he makes a costly mistake with a major client, Sam needs help from all the people he’s rebuffed. Teamed with investigative reporter Awesome Wang, Sam finally immerses himself in Shanghai culture and discovers romance along the way.

Shanghai Calling plays at 2:15 pm, November 10th at The Denver Pavilions Theater #10. Discussion to follow after at The Yardhouse

    A good film, sweet and well done. Not an epic but very accessible characters.

    There is a table set up in the lobby for tickets. Just turn left once you are inside the doors...you'll see the line.

    Thanks Rhea. How will I be able to find you? I plan to be there about one hour before.

    Hi Susan and Jeff! I also will go early to see if I can get a last minute ticket. When this happened earlier this week, I was given a numbered ticket and waited until the seat count was completed but got in. If I'm there before you (will try to be there an hour before), I'll get one for you too. I didn't pay for the ticket unless I got in ($15).

    Susan, I'd suggest at least a half hour before the film starts. I saw a line at the other movie we did last week as soon as the theater opened.
