I should have posted this on here but it slipped my mind. We are showing a great film tonight that should be of interest to most of you! This is one of my all time favorite films and we are excited to be welcoming the wife of Dexter Gordon to our after film discussion.

I hope that some of you may be able to join us!!!

Doors open 6:30pm

Suggested donation: $5, includes snacks and beverages

In this moody drama, Gallic bebop buff Francis Borler (François Cluzet) befriends self-destructive jazz great Dale Turner (Dexter Gordon), an American expatriate who left seeking a more progressive audience. Addiction has taken its toll on the gifted saxophonist, but Borler's small acts of compassion spark a renewed -- if fleeting -- zest in the jaded performer, which is echoed in his music. Herbie Hancock's original score bagged an Oscar.
