Documentary Matinee: "Prodigal Sons", Filmmaker Q&A Bonus

March 28th, Sunday Movie: Prodigal Sons Meetup Time: 2:00pm Movie Showtime: 2:15pm Landmark's Ken Cinema 4061 Adams Avenue San Diego, CA 92116 (619)[masked] Host: Eric aka Eric31 (619)[masked] (Mobile) [masked] Let's head over to the Ken Cinema for nice afternoon matinee with a documentary film. According to Landmark Theatres, there's a tentatively scheduled Q&A with filmmaker Kimberly Reed. Afterwards we'll head over to the Kensington Cafe for a light bite and post movie discussion.
Synopsis: Prodigal Sons tells the story of three fascinating siblings: filmmaker Kim, a transgender woman; Todd, a gay man; and Marc, their adopted brother who discovers he’s the grandson of Orson Welles and Rita Hayworth. The bond between longtime rivals Marc and Kim, which defies both Kim’s gender and Marc’s pedigree, exists as the fascinating heart of the film, and is orbited by a colorful, articulate cast of characters, including jailhouse chaplains, Montana farmers, intrigued high school classmates, and Orson Welles’ soul-mate Oja Kodar, among others. Carol, the remarkably resilient mother who accepts her children’s surprises with grace and optimism, provides a strong backbone for the family, as well as a clear-eyed entry-point to this drama of Wellesian proportions. All along the way surprising revelations abound: Marc’s innate savant ability to play the piano, Kim’s smooth acceptance from schoolmates and community, and their younger brother Todd’s well-adjusted attitude about being gay. After pulling for this family through its trials and tribulations, we learn that a poignant sense of hope will carry them through.

    A great documentary followed up by an amazing Q&A with filmmaker Kimberly Reed. These opportunities are rare and do not grow on trees. Congrats to members who made it for this wonderful treat.

    The documentary was great. It just goes to show that truth is stranger than fiction. The Q&A after the movie was wonderful. Also meeting with the group (and director) after the movie at the Kensington Cafe was both interesting and a lot of fun.

    Typical Montana family--transgendered artist sister who used to be a star high scholl quarterback, brain-damaged brother who is the scion on Hollywood royalty and a gay brother from San Diego. Very typical of what I consider Montana to produce.
