Join me at Guild 45th Theatre to view "No" the Oscar-nominated Best Foreign-language Film, scheduled to come to Seattle's theaters March 29th.
Landmark website describes as: "In Pablo Larraín's NO, Chilean military dictator Augusto Pinochet is forced by international pressure to call a plebiscite on his presidency in 1988. The country will vote YES or NO to Pinochet extending his rule for another eight years. Opposition leaders for the NO camp persuade a brash young advertising executive, Rene Saavedra (Gael García Bernal), to spearhead their campaign. Against all odds, with scant resources and under scrutiny by the despot's minions, Saavedra and his team devise an audacious plan to win the election and set Chile free."
NO is the Official Selection at the Toronto International and Telluride Film Festivals as well. (Fully subtitled)
This is the trailer:
Rotten Tomatoes gave the film a 84% rating. Here is the link:
PARKING: Available on surrounding neighborhood streets and in nearby pay lots.
The movie starts at 4:15 PM and will last 1hr 57min; after the credits, we will meet at the Lounge Room to decide a place for food and drinks. I understand The Rusty Pelican is within one block of the theater. There are also Chinese and Thai food, but they may be too small for the group.
Here is the website if you would like to check their menu:
