SNFC-DC: The Square at E Street - Meet at 3:45 PM

Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, May 16th at 4:05 pm for The Square at the Landmark E Street Cinema . Look for Laine wearing a pink shirt in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion. A stylish, twist-filled neo-noir worthy of the Coen Brothers, The Square centers on an adulterous couple whose scheming leads to arson, blackmail and murder. Escaping the monotony of a loveless marriage, construction supervisor Ray (David Roberts) becomes entangled in an affair with the lovely but troubled Carla (Claire van der Boom). She presents him with a large chunk of money stolen by her husband, suggesting that they keep it for themselves. Ray agrees, and they hire a professional arsonist (Joel Edgerton), which turns out to be the first of a series of deadly errors. At first all seems to go well, but soon the bodies start to pile up, and then the first blackmail note arrives from a mystery author. Written by his brother Joel, this tense thriller is directed by former stuntman Nash Edgerton, who succeeds in building ferocious tension.

    This was my first Meetup for a movie. I enjoyed the group, which was friendly and open.
    Laine came up with a good restaurant, Teaism, reasonably priced and closeby.
    The movie, The Square, certainly was a puzzler, and great for discussion. I look forward to another interesting movie and discussion.
