Oliver Stone's "W." movie received mixed reviews from critics and ordinary viewers. For anyone with at least a slight interest in politics, I think this is a movie worth watching, and then everybody can judge for themselves :-)
Here's the original synopsis (http://wthefilm.com):
"Whether you love him or hate him, there is no question that George W. Bush is one of the most controversial public figures in recent memory. In an unprecedented undertaking, acclaimed director Oliver Stone is bringing the life of our 43rd President to the big screen as only he can. W takes viewers through Bush?s eventful life -- his struggles and triumphs, how he found both his wife and his faith, and of course the critical days leading up to Bush?s decision to invade Iraq."
The movie starts at 21:30. We'll meet at 21:00 and take seats by 21:15 in order to have good places.
If you don't have one already, you'll need to purchase a festival card, in addition to the price of the ticket for the movie - see (in Swedish) http://www.stockholmfilmfestival.se/festival/2008/festivalguide/
. The ticket price for this movie on Nov 26 is 70 sek.
Don't forget to bring your festival card with you! And perhaps it may be a good idea to purchase your ticket online on the festival website - you may then retrieve it at the cinema up to 20 minutes before the projection starts.
If there's interest, we could try meeting earlier for a light dinner somewhere near the cinema - just mention this in your rsvp and I'll coordinate.
