Somm-- Cleveland Museum of Art Provenance before Starbucks Afterwards

Leti's see Somm at the Cleveland Museum of Art.  If you like wine or think you know something about wine--this movie is probably a must see!!

Somm

Four men will do anything to pass the most difficult test you've NEVER heard of... SOMM takes the viewer on a humorous, emotional and illuminating look into a mysterious world - the Court of Master Sommeliers and the massively intimidating Master Sommelier Exam. The Court of Master Sommeliers is one of the world's most prestigious, secretive, and exclusive organizations. Since its inception almost 40 years ago, less than 200 candidates have reached the exalted Master level. The exam covers literally every nuance of the world of wine, spirits and cigars. Those who have passed have put at risk their personal lives, their well- being, and often their sanity to pull it off. Shrouded in secrecy, access to the Court Of Master Sommeliers has always been strictly regulated and cameras have never been allowed anywhere near the exam, until now. How much do you think you know about wine? SOMM will make you think again. SOMM takes you on the ultimate insider's tour into a world of obsession, hope, and friendship in red, blanc and sometimes rose.

NOTE TO FIRST TIME GOERS
If this is your first movie with the group, there is no fee to attend.

This group has been successful partly because members have a genuine interest in meeting fellow independent movie goers. We don't always know where to look for you, especially first timers.  Consider posting your picture and printing out the pictures of the attendees to help find everyone easier.

We don't always sit together in the movie theater but if you see a bunch of people talking about good movies they have seen, it is probably us. Please join in. We are always happy to get new people involved.

NOTE TO ALL
In the world of Independent films, it is recommended that you check back a few days before the event to make sure the movie, restaurant, location or time has not changed.

    Excellent movie dealing with the rigorous amount of preparation that is required to pass this test to become a master wine taster. It was great having the director on hand to answer questions

    Why aren't we going to a wine bar afterwards? Starbucks--Just another sleepless nite!! Is this a non drinking group?

    • Karen

      Maureen--I selected Starbucks because it is close and easy to go there and talk. Many people have to go to work the next day--so I didn't schedule a late meal at a restaurant with adult beverages. Some in this group enjoy adult beverages when we go out for dinner. You can get wine at the museum restaurant before and maybe after the movie. Hope to see you Wed. Karen
