If you're interested in meeting up occasionally to see a film, mostly independent and sometimes not, and also meet some cool people, then this is the meetup for you. We usually stick to theaters around Palo Alto, Mountain View, and Redwood City. We also meet for coffee or dinner, before or after depending on the movie time.
Show time: 2:00 PM (Part of the SF Jewish Film Festival -- Purchase your tickets in advance: https://jfi.org/sfjff-2019/film-guide/how-about-adolf)
When Thomas (Florian David Fitz), the black sheep of a progressive middle-class academic family, surprises his siblings with the news that he intends to name his son Adolf, petty carnage ensues as personal, ideological and sexual histories are unmasked in this scintillating dark comedy. A breakout German box office hit, this send-up of social respectability and appearances shows as much of an awareness of Germany's current shifting political landscape and reactionary views as it does an understanding of the tense interpersonal dynamics between siblings and in-laws. With a marvelous screenplay that is biting, quick, and frequently genuinely shocking, How About Adolf? is an enjoyable excursion into bourgeois infighting and mayhem. (In German with English subtitles; 91 mins.)
If you'd like to go for a chat and coffee after the show, meet outside the theater on the plaza.
