Special August Meetup (Silver Spring) The Movie: Smilla's Sense of Snow

As a special follow-up to our August 15th meeting, those interested in seeing the movie, Smilla's Sense of Snow, can gather in front of the box office at the AFI SilverTheater on Saturday, August 31st.  The movie, playing as part of the AFI Silver's Scandinavian Crime Cinema festival, starts at 11:00 a.m.  We will enter the theater promptly at 10:45 a.m. sharp.  After the movie ends, we will go down the street to Panera (8541 Georgia Avenue) for a discussion of the movie.

Lonely Copenhagener Smilla Jasperson (Julia Ormond), a transplanted Greenlander, suspects foul play after the death of her neighbor, a neglected Inuit boy. Enlisting the aid of the mysterious Mechanic (Gabriel Byrne), she uncovers a conspiracy stretching from her ancestral home to the Danish business elite. Directed by Danish Oscar-winner Bille August (PELLE THE CONQUEROR, THE BEST INTENTIONS); the exquisite cast includes Richard Harris, Vanessa Redgrave, Jim Broadbent and Tom Wilkinson.

In English and Inuktitut with English subtitles. RATED R.

Those who did not read the book but still want to see the movie are welcome.
