Acclaimed Irish director Lenny Abrahamson creates a wildly quirky comedy about a naïve young wannabe musician, Jon (Domhnall Gleeson, About Time), who finds himself out of his depth when he joins an avant-garde rock band led by the mysterious Frank (Michael Fassbender, conquering the ultimate acting challenge), an unstable but charismatic musical savant who wears a large, round fake head with crudely painted-on features all the time—like Daniel Johnston hidden behind a cartoon smile. Frank's closest musical collaborator is the forbidding Clara (Maggie Gyllenhaal, Donnie Darko); part caretaker, part jailer, Clara is the antithesis of all things mainstream. For Jon, this is the break he's been waiting for, his chance to climb through the looking glass and into the world of artistic collaboration, real music-making, and rock 'n' roll adventure that he's always dreamed of. But does he have the talent to make it? Written by Jon Ronson (The Men Who Stare at Goats) and Peter Straughan (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), based on the memoir by Ronson.

Showtime is 1:00pm.

Purchase your ticket and meet up in the lobby (look for the tiny Meetup sign). We'll head into the show about 5 minutes before showtime.

    I also was at Bazoo's with the 4 people Phyllis mentions. It is amazing to me, every time I discuss a movie afterwards, I get some new points of view. I liked the movie. It was a little odd, but, hey, so am I.

    thought provoking--4 of us discussed afterwards; very thought-provoking. I consider my self to be astute but there were aspects that I'd missed or didn't quite understand.

    Was interesting. As a singer / soon to be musician, I will be thinking about it and it's messages.
