SATURDAY MOVIE: ALMODOVAR'S I'M SO EXCITED $11.00 4:55pm Hillcrest

Hello everyone. It's been a while since I have been to a good movie. I would like to suggest Pedro Almodovar's new film - I'M SO EXCITED! (90 min) which is now playing at the Hillcrest Landmark Theatre
Show date: Tomorrow Saturday July 6th
Show time: 4:55 pm. (so meet 15 or so before inside lobby)

$11.00 GENERAL; $8.50 SENIOR (62+)

Landmark Synopsis:In writer/director Pedro Almodóvar's bawdy comedy I'm So Excited!, the filmmaker's most joyous and colorful film since Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, passengers are put in a precarious situation aboard a plane flying from Spain to Mexico City when a landing gear failure endangers their lives. As the pilots strive to find a solution, the flamboyant flight attendants and chief steward try to forget their own personal problems and devote themselves body and soul to the task of making the flight as enjoyable as possible for the hysterical passengers. But life in the clouds is as complicated as it is at ground level, and all the passengers have some kind of secret. When faced with their potential demise, everyone reacts with unfiltered honesty and riotous sexual abandon. (Fully subtitled)

    I'm so glad I finally made it to another event w/this Meetup group, and I really enjoyed this "typically" over-the-top Almodovar film. Occasionally he has made some more realistic and serious films, which I've enjoyed thoroughly, but I do think the *wackiness* of "Amantes Pasajeros" is very much an Almodovar trademark (btw, the title can be doubly translated to Passenger Lovers/Passing Lovers; double-meaning is typical in Spanish).

    I enjoyed getting out to the movies and making it to this film event w/this group. Hanging out for some light eats & drinks afterwards was fun too! I look forward to the next film outing. :))

    I hit the movie on the right night for me to enjoy and recommend it (mostly at least). It did over stretch credulity several times, and the interactions would have been more legitimate in a dive bar vice an airliner at altitude, but unless DB Cooper was on the Peninsula Air passenger manifest this milieu allowed the cast members to avoid escaping their respective back stories and how those events impacted their lives in present tense. Thank you all for quite the enjoyable "La Cage Aux Folles" (at least reasonably close to spelling and theme) afternoon. Oh and for those who didn't see his movie of approximately two years ago Broken Embraces, DO, do see it... A really wonderful film, much different in temperment from "Excited," and one where all elements worked throughout for me.

    It was nice to meet with the group. Got frustrated trying to find a parking space near the restaurant so I gave up. Think next time, I will just park directl in the street. Bet the food was yummy!

    Driving in from O. County. Traffic is intense. Unfortunately it will delay my timely arrival to SD. So regret missing this film with you. I hope you enjoy it. Thank you Stephen
