The Greek film Suntan will be screened as part of the AFI's European Union Film Showcase on Sunday, December 18, 2016 at 8:30 PM (the film debuts on Saturday, December 17, 2016 at 9:45 PM). Sunday is a little easier for me, plus we can meet for dinner at The Big Greek Cafe (8223 Georgia Ave, Silver Spring, MD 20910) around 7pm or so. Here is a write up of the film:
Fortysomething doctor Kostis arrives for his new posting on the island of Antiparos during the quiet winter months, which suits the introverted Kostis fine. But summer brings the tourists and party people, including the uninhibited young beauty Anna, with whom Kostis becomes infatuated after treating her for a sprained ankle. Filmmaker Argyris Papadimitropoulos (WASTED YOUTH) crafts a calculatedly provocative morality tale about the siren call of hedonism and the aching desire of middle age in the face of the intoxicating cult of youth and beauty.
