ALL IS LOST, starring Robert Redford, at the Varsity, hosted by Jeff

Hi everyone!  This Tuesday let's watch ALL IS LOST, starring Robert Redford as an old man lost at sea after a boating accident.  The movie is running an amazing 94% on rottentomatoes.com, who say it "offers a moving, eminently worthwhile testament to Robert Redford's ability to hold the screen".  The Toronto Star writes that "It's a magnificent and awards-beckoning performance by Redford, who hasn't seemed this caught up in a film for a good 20 years or more."  I think the movie will have very little dialogue, but will be gripping and epic anyway as we watch our hero's desperate and innovative efforts to survive.  So, please come see it with us!

SHOWTIME: 7:15 pm on Tuesday Nov 19 at the Varsity Cinema.  (movie length = 1h46m)

MEETING TIME: 6:50-7:00pm

MEETING LOCATION: At the Varsity Cinema, just past the ticket-takers, by the customer service desk.  Look for tall hairy Jeff with a yellow MEETUP sign.

TICKETS: This movie costs just $7.99 (or $7.19 with a Scene card); you may wish to purchase your ticket in advance at http://www.cineplex.com/Theatres/TheatreDetails/Cineplex-Odeon-Varsity-and-VIP-Cinemas.aspx

AFTER THE MOVIE: Let's all discuss the movie for a few minutes as a group right in the cinema lobby.  Then, interested persons may wish to go for drinks and socialising, probably at the Foxes Den bar at 1075 Bay Street.

I hope to see you there!

Best wishes, Jeff
