Join the Boston Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Sep 28th at 7:10pm for Choke at the AMC Boston Common 19 . Look for Michael wearing a red shirt and smile 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.
Victor Mancini is a medical-school dropout who has devised an ingenious scam to pay elder care for his Alzheimer’s-afflicted mother: he pretends to choke on pieces of food while dining in upscale restaurants. He then allows himself to be “saved” by fellow patrons who, feeling responsible for Victor’s life, go on to send checks to support him. When he’s not pulling this stunt, Victor cruises sexual addiction recovery workshops for action, visits his addled mom, and spends his days working at a colonial theme park.
