Joining this group is a good way to meet interesting people, socialize, and make new friends over coffee as well as see great movies at various Bangkok cinemas.

Quite a variety of people attend our meetups. There are Thais and expats from all over the world.

Everything happens in a quiet, relaxed atmosphere of coffee and snacks for an hour before the movie. In addition, you can stay with us after the coffee hour for a movie at one of Bangkok's leading cinemas, usually SF Cinema City at the Terminal 21 Shopping Center, easily accessible by either the BTS Skytrain or the MRT (underground line). After the movie, we have an interesting 15-minute discussion of the movie.

Over the years, we have seen many highly rated films. During the Academy Awards season (Oscars), we usually see all Oscar-nominated films shown in Bangkok. Also, we have seen many outstanding international documentary films from the Thailand Documentary Club and shown at SF Cinemas or the Foreign Correspondents Club of Thailand.

"The Kindergarten Teacher", Maggie Gyllenhaal - at the Bangkok Screening Room

ต้องการสถานที่

The uncommonly adventurous Maggie Gyllenhaal hits a new career peak with The Kindergarten Teacher, compelling us to understand a woman who maybe doesn’t understand herself. That’s an apt description of her Lisa Spinelli, a Staten Island wife and mother who’s been teaching kindergarten for 20 years — the kind of person whose soft voice barely disguises the fact that she’s screaming inside. Lisa has dreams of being a poet, an artistic calling whose wheels have come off as the culture dives further into digital, short-attention-span freefall. She has a decent husband who cares — or pretends to — that she takes an adult education course in poetry writing. Her two teenage children are way too wrapped up in their own lives to make time for her. To make matter worse, Lisa’s flirty instructor doesn’t think her work is very good. It’s at this point that you may be ready to write off the movie as one of those well-meaning exercises in midlife angst. Don’t you dare. Gyllenhaal is not one to color inside the box, and neither is writer-director Sara Colangelo (Little Accidents). It may seem conventional when Lisa takes an interest in her student Jimmy, a quiet boy who unprompted will start reciting lines that read as poetry. She is dumbstruck. How can a child know so much of life? So the woman writes down Jimmy’s words and passes them off as her own in poetry class. Suddenly, her teacher is impressed. At this point, you might thinking the film is becoming a cautionary tale about appropriating someone else’s work as your own. Wrong. Before long, Lisa is bringing Jimmy to a poetry reading in Manhattan (against the explicit orders of his divorced father), letting the audience and her teacher see what he can do. Jimmy, half scared and half exhilarated, does himself proud. But her deception gets her booted out of poetry class. Does rejection destroy this would-be patron of the arts? You’d think so. But no. Instead Lisa makes Jimmy her cause. She sneaks him out of kindergarten during nap time and into a room where she pushes him to create. It’s no wonder his parents transfer him to a new school, an incident that brings his former teacher to the breaking point, as she kidnaps Jimmy from his new school and sweeps off her prodigy to a lake resort where they can share deep thoughts and a room. It’s hard not to think “WTF?!” as the film drifts into a creepy suspense thriller that makes us fear for the child. What is this grown woman doing with a five-year-old who barely speaks until he says, “I have a poem”?
