Update: I’m feeling lousy, so I’ve asked Howard to step in and host tonight’s showing of Looper. Sorry for any confusion.
Join the Boston Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Sep 30th at 7:20p for Looper at the Somerville 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.
In the futuristic action thriller Looper, time travel will be invented but it will be illegal and only available on the black market. When the mob wants to get rid of someone, they will send their target 30 years into the past, where a looper a hired gun, like Joe (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is waiting to mop up. Joe is getting rich and life is good until the day the mob decides to close the loop, sending back Joes future self (Bruce Willis) for assassination.
