Please join me to see Another Year. The times are not posted yet but I am hoping that the movie is still showing on Friday at the same times as the rest of the week. I will update as needed.
The newest film from Mike Leigh (Happy-Go-Lucky, Vera Drake, Secrets & Lies, Topsy Turvy), master of in-depth characterization, is cause for celebration. Another Year is a touching and beautifully-nuanced drama of a year in the life of a happily married middle-aged couple, and the less well-adjusted people who gather around them; little seems to happen, but much does. Leigh regulars Jim Broadbent (Topsy Turvy, When Did You Last See Your Father) and Ruth Sheen (High Hopes) play Tom and Gerri, a warm and affable couple. Tom is a geological engineer, Gerri is a medical counselor; they like to tend their garden in the public allotment and enjoy having friends over for a meal. One of the regular guests is Mary (National Board of Review Best Actress winner Leslie Manville, in a spectacular train-wreck of a performance), a lonely co-worker of Gerri's who hits the bottle and hits on the wrong guys for romance. She is attracted to Tom and Gerri's adult (but much younger) son Joe (Oliver Maltman), not knowing that he has brought his new girlfriend home to meet the parents.

If you want to try a cupcake from the new Sprinkles that just opened in the shopping center plan on getting there early in case there are lines and they close at 7:00 (you just might find me in line).
The movie starts at 7:20.
We can go out to eat afterward.
See you there,
