Jeff is going to the below film and wanted to share in case folks would like to join him.
Denver Film Festival - Blue Valentine This plays at 4 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets are $13, or $11 for DFS members. If you'd like to come along let me know when you indicate you like the idea. It's at the King Recital Center, 855 Lawrence Wy. on UCD campus. Synopsis below: An embattled, working-class couple are a boozy furniture mover named Dean (Ryan Gosling) and a discontented nurse, Cindy (Michelle Williams), who's convinced that her husband never fulfilled his potential. Married young, now bewildered by the ups and downs of conjugal life, complicated by the presence of their young daughter. When Dean and Cindy check into a theme hotel in an attempt to patch things up, their relationship undergoes thorough examination?past and present, happy and embittered?through flashbacks and in-the-moment tableaux. We suspect from the start that things will not end well, and Cianfrance (director) never pulls his punches as he moves the story back and forth in time.
Hello Film Lovers! The Denver Indie Film, Dinner, & Discussion Meetup is for anyone interested in movies that fall outside the big Hollywood blockbuster type of movie. We'll be focused on seeing independent films, foreign films, documentaries - and then heading out to dinner to discuss them. This is a great opportunityty to see those films you always want to see but can never find anyone to go with you!
We will meet the first Sunday of every month for a 4pm movie. Movie selection, time, theater will be emailed two weeks prior to the meetup. After the movie we will go to a nearby restaurant for dinner and discussion of the film. I'll bring reviews from a few critics and we'll see if we agree with them.
This group is about making new friends, seeing interesting films, and having great discussion afterwards! No fancy film knowledge required, just an open mind and appreciation of a well told story! Newbies are always welcome!
