Join the Boston Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Apr 29th at 7:30p for Blindspotting (IFFBoston) 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.
Collin (Daveed Diggs, Black-ish) is trying to make it through his final days of probation for an infamous arrest he can’t wait to put behind him. Always by his side is his fast-talking childhood bestie, Miles (Rafael Casal), who has a knack for finding trouble. They grew up together in the notoriously rough Oakland, a.k.a. “The Town,” which has become the new trendy place to live in the rapidly gentrifying Bay Area. But when Collin’s chance for a fresh start is interrupted by a life-changing missed curfew, his friendship with Miles is forced out of its comfortable buddy-comedy existence, and the Bay boys are set on a spiraling collision course with each other.
Note: This is part of IFFBoston 2018, which kicks off today (Wednesday the 25th) and runs until next Wednesday. It is recommended that you purchase your tickets in advance for this screening. It’s also highly recommended that you check out the other films screening at this year’s festival!
