A sweet and hilarious fusion of gay romantic comedy, Jewish family drama and French bedroom farce, Mikael Buch's Let My People Go! follows the travails and daydreams of the lovelorn Reuben (Nicolas Maury), a French-Jewish gay mailman living in fairytale Finland (where he got his MA in "Comparative Sauna Cultures") with his gorgeous Nordic boyfriend. But just before Passover, a series of mishaps and a lovers' quarrel exile the heartbroken Reuben back to Paris and his zany family-including Almodovar goddess Carmen Maura as his ditzy mom, and Truffaut regular Jean-François Stévenin as his lothario father. Scripted by director Mikael Buch and renowned arthouse auteur Christophe Honoré ("Love Songs"), Let My People Go! both celebrates and upends Jewish and gay stereotypes with wit, gusto and style to spare.

 7:45pm

    If there are no seats left, can I sit on someone's lap? Can I bring my lap dog, he doesn't bark too often, and doesn't pee as much as he used to, especially when he smells popcorn?

    I'm the rogue that went to see "Let My People Go!"... It was great. Awesome soundtrack, very comical but touching, all-around well-done film. Hope everyone enjoyed the shorts, or whatever they went to see.

      Oh, what I meant was a Meetup at another venue in another part of the city. I wasn't worried about multiple groups meeting here.

    Just a heads-up that another meetup is planning to view the shorts that night. Could get crowded.
