Join the Boston Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Feb 10th at 7:05pm for 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days at the Kendall Square Cinema . 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.
“Winner of the Palme d’Or at the 2007 Cannes Film Festival, this unforgettable drama is so gripping it plays like a thriller. Set during the last year of the Ceauçescu dictatorship, ironically called the “Golden Age of Romania,” life has become a nightmare for the hard-pressed citizens. The film unfolds over 24 tense hours as a college student (Anamaria Marinca) desperately tries to arrange an illegal abortion for her irresponsible roommate (Laura Vasiliu). As almost everything that could possibly go wrong does, the film reveals how oppression infects every aspect of the culture. A political, moral and spiritual knockout.”
