$5 Monday Meetup @ Living Room Theaters! Like Father Like Son (6:35pm)

Grab a drink and let's go see a movie! Bring friends and some good conversation to discuss the film, its characters, the production and more. The Living Room Theater is the location of our weekly Monday meetup. Most movies they play are independent, foreign, artistic with an occasional blockbuster.

We meet Monday evenings to take advantage of their $5 Merry Monday Movie special. They have weekday showings of all their movies in the 7:00 hour, and those are the showings we're shooting for. If you see something coming up there that you'd like to recommend as our Living Room movie of the week, message me or post it on the board by Wednesday the previous week!

See you at the movies!

Like Father, Like Son

Ryota (Masaharu Fukuyama) is a successful Tokyo architect who works long hours to provide for his wife, Midori (Machiko Ono) and six-year-old son, Keita. But when a blood test reveals Keita and another baby were switched at birth, two very different families are thrown together and forced to make a difficult decision while Ryota confronts his own issues of responsibility and what it means to be a father. Like Father, Like Son extends the Japanese cinema tradition of familial exploration to deliver a gentle and moving story of personal redemption that playfully navigates its way through the drama.

Director: Hirokazu KoreedaCountry: JapanGenre: DramaYear: 2014Run Time: 02:01:01imdb Score: 7.9/10 (2,355 votes)Language: JapaneseRating: Not RatedCast: Masaharu Fukuyama, Machiko Ono, Yôko Maki"Follows [a] pattern fairly predictably at first, then transcends it with tenderness, humor and exquisite depth of feeling."


"What stays with you... is the unlikely shadow of loss, not least in the hearts of the boys' mothers: how can a loving child, even the "wrong" one, be let go?"

Anthony Lane - THE NEW YORKER

"Mr. Hirokazu again creates a pair of irresistible charmers whose lives are, with increasing emotional violence, upended... by the very adults meant to take care of them."

Manohla Dargis - NEW YORK TIMES

"This is a relentlessly quiet character study that is photographed with Zen remove and scored metronomically to Bach and Beethoven, each scene clipped to the barest essentials."

Keith Uhlich - TIME OUT NEW YORK
