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!

Best wishes, Jeff
