SYNOPSIS: Laura (Rashida Jones) is a young New York mother who believes she is happily hitched, until her husband (Marlon Wayans) starts logging late hours at the office with a new co-worker. Faced with sudden doubts about her marriage, Laura teams up with her larger-than-life playboy father (Bill Murray) to tail her husband. What follows is a sparkling comic adventure across the city – drawing father and daughter closer together, despite one detour after another. Acclaimed filmmaker Sofia Coppola brings a light touch to this blend of exuberant love letter to New York and generation-clash comedy, that reveals how we see relationships differently from our parents and celebrates the complications that bind modern families even as they tie us in crazy knots.

An expert sleight of hand artist, he's amazed and astounded audiences at countless shows and events across the country with his modern wizardry. Stood in a magic shop as an impressionable 10 year old boy, Billy was captivated by a basic magic trick. Today, his mission is simple: to bring his audiences the sense of wonder and intrigue he experienced that day… A 20-year journey from impressionable young lad to fully-fledged sleight of hand Jedi master has seen him schooled by dozens of master magicians, study hundreds of specialist texts, and spend thousands of hours in painstaking practice. Now a member of the world famous Magic Circle, his stunning brand of entertainment - delivered with charm, personality and a rapier sharp wit - makes any event a truly memorable one. Ultimately, Billy offers an unforgettable entertainment experience - a spellbinding assault on your perception of reality where cards appear and disappear; coins transpose to impossible locations, objects levitate and minds are read… You've never seen anything like it, and it's all for your entertainment and wonderment!** *T&Cs. There is a maximum number of Zoom attendees set. Please do not give the link to anyone else. Anyone who joins the room with a name who is not on my list will either not be admitted, or removed if they get in, and this will detract from the show. Please use your Meetup name, personal or family name for Zoom and preferably not your device name e.g. Galaxy S10, as we will not know who you are and if you should be admitted (pm Aileen in advance to advise the name you will be using if required).

Payment of £9.50 per RSVP, covering ONE device only, should be made immediately after RSVP. I will usually allow a reasonable window of time for this. Unpaid RSVPs may be removed without further notice.
