Hi! Let's get-together for a POTLUCK and RUSSIAN MOVIE at my house on a Sunday afternoon. Bring some food and/or drink for the potluck. We will first eat and mingle - excellent opportunity to converse in Russian or English with other meetup group members - and then we will watch a Russian movie with English subtitles. I chose a very new mainstream action/drama movie which should be a fun and easy watch for everyone.
MOVIE: August Eighth (Август Восьмого)
GENRE: Action, War, Drama
DIRECTOR: Dzhanik Fayziev
SYNOPSIS: It seems the life of the 23-year-old Moscow girl Ksenia could not get any better: her new boyfriend has planned a relaxing vacation for the two of them and her ex-husband, a Russian peacekeeper stationed in South Ossetia, has conveniently asked to spend some time with the young son just at the right time. But the idyllic reality begins to fall apart, when Ksenia unexpectedly realizes that South Ossetia, where she had just sent her young son, is on the brink of a full-scale military invasion by the neighboring Georgia. Now it is up to Ksenia to find a way into the very center of war and save her son, before it is too late.
