“Murderball” – July 24th

Join the Boston Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, July 24th at 5:45pm for “Murderball” at the Coolidge Corner Theatre. Look for Sean wearing a nametag in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.

This is the true story of a group of tough, competitive, and, yes, quadriplegic rugby players who race down the court in souped-up fortified wheelchairs and slam into each other with bone-jarring intensity. The world-class athletes of Team USA are up against their toughest rival yet in a non-stop thrill ride that will leave you breathless. Filmed from a chairs-eye view, the film also shows the lives of the players off the court, for a story filled with family, revenge, honor, sex, and the triumph of love over loss.

  1. I saw the posting on the LJ B0st0n community that you all were going to see Murderball last night, and I hope you enjoyed it – I saw it at the Boston premiere a few weeks ago and loved it. I know someone that works for the company that planned the premiere, and I wanted to pass some info on…
    They just got an e-mail from Think Films asking everyone to do their best to spread the word because they are having very poor box office results. I’d hate to see a film like this leave the theaters too quickly, and wanted to pass the word on. If you liked it, please spread the word and get others out to see it!

  2. Sarah –
    12 people showed up for the film last night and I believe everyone enjoyed it very much… I’ve already encouraged a few people to see it myself, and I’m sure the others will as well.

  3. Awesome! I’m glad you enjoyed it…I actually wanted to meet with you guys and see it again but couldn’t make it. :(
