Sorry for the late notice, but we'll be going to see Cracks at 7:10 at the Varsity Theatre on Tuesday, June 28th, which is showing for one week only! We'll be meeting at 6:45 and heading into the theater about 15 minutes before the movie starts.
From the Landmark Website: "Cracks, the dazzling debut film from director/co-writer Jordan Scott (daughter of legendary director Ridley Scott), stars Eva Green (Casino Royale, The Dreamers) as Miss G, a glamorous force in an idyllic British boarding school. The school’s most elite clique, led by Di (Juno Temple), rule the school and compete for the attention of Miss G, who thrives on the girls’ fascination and eggs them on with lessons in a scandalously liberated world view. But when a beautiful Spanish girl, Fiamma (María Valverde), appears at the school, the girls are immediately threatened by the outsider’s perfect allure. Even Miss G, who loved being the most glamorous presence in her girls’ lives, becomes obsessed with, threatened and tantalized by Fiamma..."
This film is NR (Not Rated) and runs 1 hour 44 minutes. It has gotten mixed reviews on Metacritic and Rotten Tomatoes (with a 41% on the latter), but most major film critics have yet to review it. Some who have (and who gave it positive reviews) include Moira McDonald (of the Seattle Times), Stephen Holden (of the New York Times), and James Berardinelli.
After the movie, we will regroup in the lobby before heading to Cafe on the Ave to discuss the film. I can only stay for about a half hour, since I work early the next day, but feel free to stay longer. Or, if we have a small group, we can discuss it as the credits roll. :-)
