MY FLICK PICK is: "Frances Ha"
ACTUAL SHOWTIME: 7:10 pm
WHY?: The director, Noah (Margot at the Wedding, The Squid and the Whale) Baumbach is makes some thoroughly authentic films and I really like the star, Greta (Hannah Takes the Stairs, Greenberg) Gerwig, who is the queen of the REALLY independent films being made in the lately. This is his labor of love. I can't resist.
Frances lives in New York, but she doesn't really have an apartment. Frances is an apprentice for a dance company, but sheÂ¹s not really a dancer. Frances has a best friend named Sophie, but they aren't really speaking anymore. Frances throws herself headlong into her dreams, even as their possible reality dwindles. Frances wants so much more than she has but lives her life with unaccountable joy and lightness.
Greta Gerwig, Adam Driver, Grace Gummer
RATE THE MEETUP: Don't forget to rate the meetup after you attend it! Please check all five stars if you enjoyed yourself since it will help us to attract sponsors - so please be generous in spirit. And remember, you are rating the EVENT - NOT rate the MOVIE. You can have a great time with us and still not love the flick!
While it's great if we can hook up in the lobby beforehand - what matters most is hooking up in the lobby AFTER the film. Just look for me or a small group of people and say "Hi", don't be shy. Let me know you showed up - I LOVE to meet everyone in person!
FILM CHAT & EATS:
The whole point is to TALK about the film, right??? So, depending upon the size of the group, we usually pick a nearby restaurant or cafe and tromp on over there en masse. We really do have some great film conversations and get to explore the film even further than we normally would.
Hope to see you then!!
