Join the Boston Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Apr 30th at 6:30p for Lost in Paris at the Brattle 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.
Note: This film is part of IFFBoston 2017. You should buy tickets in advance to ensure a seat. Furthermore, while Sean should be around before and after the movie to make sure the group finds each other, he has festival movies on either side of the club pick, so he will likely be skipping dinner.
Filmed in Dominique Abel and Fiona Gordon’s signature whimsical style, LOST IN PARIS stars the filmmakers as a small-town Canadian librarian and a strangely seductive, oddly egotistical vagabond. When Fiona’s (Gordon) orderly life is disrupted by a letter of distress from her 93-year-old Aunt Martha (delightfully portrayed by Academy Award nominee Emmanuelle Riva, AMOUR), who is living in Paris, Fiona hops on the first plane she can and arrives only to discover that Martha has disappeared. In an avalanche of spectacular disasters, she encounters Dom (Abel), the affable but annoying tramp who just won’t leave her alone. Replete with the amazing antics and intricately choreographed slapstick that have come to define Abel and Gordon’s work, LOST IN PARIS is a wondrously fun and hectic tale of peculiar people finding love while lost in the City of Lights.
