Oscar-Nominated Live Action Short Films 2013 @ Nuart, 2/9/13 @ 5:00 p.m.

Now Playing at the Nuart Theatre

UPDATE: Dinner after the movie (around 7:15) at Talay Thai:

11314 Santa Monica Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90025

This is just down the street from the Nuart on the next block. We can gather after the movie in front of the theater and walk down together.

Come join me (Pat) at the Nuart for the annual showing of all 5 Oscar-nominated live action short films. I've seen these for the last 2 or 3 years, and there are always a few gems in the bunch. The Oscar-nominated animated short films are in a double bill with this but they are a separate admission price. I will be posting those for Monday the 11th at 7:40. Both programs are alternating until the 14th. Here's a chance to win the NY Times Oscar pool by seeing all the films being voted on!

This year's program will be hosted by last year's winner: Luke Matheny, writer/director of "God of Love." Program includes: "Asad" (South Africa/USA), a coming-of-age fable of a Somali boy who is faced with either falling into a life of piracy, or choosing the path of an honest fisherman; "Buzkashi Boys" (Afghanistan/USA), the story of two best friends—a street urchin and a blacksmith's son—who struggle to realize their dreams as they make their way to manhood in war-torn Kabul; "Curfew" (USA), in which Richie, at the lowest point of his life, gets a call from his estranged sister, asking him to look after his nine-year old niece Sophia for the evening; "Death of a Shadow" (Belgium/France), in which a strange collector imprisons the shadow of Nathan (Matthias Schoenaerts, Rust and Bone), a soldier who died during World War I, and gives him a second life against 10,000 captured shadows; and "Henry" (Canada), in which Henry, a great concert pianist, has his life thrown in turmoil the day the love of this life, Maria, disappears mysteriously.

    My favorites were "Curfew" and "Asad". Good program--but on the whole darker and more serious on balance than the last two years.

      Those are my favorites as well. I like how Asad depicted struggles yet added a playful twist

    Looks like they (meetup) won't let us comment in the RSVP box. (Two comments were removed). Just tell me in person if you want to go to dinner after when we gather before the movie.

    Am thinking of the little Thai joint down the street for dinner after the screening. It's decent food and usually not crowded. Other ideas?

      I think that Thai place will be able to seat us easily, their food is good.
