Three Days With the Family (Tres d?as con la fam?lia)
Lea has come home to Catalonia to attend her grandfather?s funeral. An apathetic young woman of 21 who?s been studying in France, she?s suddenly thrust back into the bosom of her dysfunctional family. Though Lea?s parents have long been separated, her mother reappears for the funeral to keep up appearances. Lea?s father Josep Maria, the son of deceased patriarch Pere, is a sensitive man who listens to impassioned opera but is emotionally so withdrawn that he can?t get close to his daughter. Her French mother Joelle drinks to hide her sadness. Not surprisingly, Lea?s a loner and distraught by all the family stress; on top of everything else, her boyfriend is just breaking up with her. Josep Maria?s two brothers arrive with Lea?s cousins, with whom she feels somewhat more at ease than with the older generation. Conspicuously absent until the last minute is the men?s sister Virginia, who has written a book about the family, thinly disguised as a novel. When everyone finally sits down for the funeral meal, it?s time to reexamine familial hypocrisies and pent-up feelings. Young director Mar Coll directed this outstanding ensemble cast to win three awards for THREE DAYS WITH THE FAMILY at the Malaga Spanish Film Festival. (In Catalan, Spanish, and French with subtitles) ? B.B.

Due to the large crowds at the Festival, it is advisable to arrive early. Considering the parking challenges (see details below), it would be prudent to allow time for parking and getting a good spot in front of the queue for your selected film. Expect delays and large numbers of moviegoers. A word of practical advice regarding the CIFF: If possible, purchase tickets as far in advance as possible. Also, get to the Tower City Cinemas early so that you will get a spot at the front of the ticket holder line and thereby the prime seats in the show. It is always possible to go to Tower City and purchase a stand-by ticket before the show if necessary. However, this is not recommended, as it is something like flying on stand-by. There are no guarantees and you?ll be corralled into a queue for an hour or more before the show. This is not fun.

Please try to avoid stand-by at all costs.

FREE PARKING is offered WHEN AVAILABLE to CIFF patrons in the Tower City Center Self-Parking Garage and Tower City Amphitheater Parking at River (off Canal Road). Patrons must have their parking ticket validated at Tower City Cinemas. Valet Parking is also available at Tower City Center.

The Huron Road access ramp to Tower City Center self-parking lot is currently closed. SELF-PARKING MUST BE ACCESSED FROM CANAL ROAD (ACROSS FROM SHERWIN WILLIAMS). Please allow extra travel time.
