vicky_cristina_barcelona_ver2Fellow Film Club Members:

 

I have the privilege and pleasure of being the discussion leader for this film this Saturday, August 26, 2008; immediately after the 4:45pm screening, in the lower lobby. As luck would have it, this will be the theatrical film picked by the Producer’s Committee for next month’s choices. Please join me Saturday, if you can. It always feels good to be supported in these discussion groups.

Vicky Cristina Barcelona

Opening Date: Aug 15, 2008

Woody Allen directs this film about two young American women who spend a summer in Spain and meet a flamboyant artist (Javier Bardem) and his beautiful, but insane ex-wife (Penelope Cruz). Vicky (Rebecca Hall) is straight-laced and about to be married. Cristina (Scarlett Johansson) is a sexually adventurous free spirit. When they all become amorously entangled, the results are both hilarious and harrowing.

A sexy, funny divertissement that passes as enjoyably as an idle summer’s afternoon in the titular Spanish city. — Todd McCarthy, Variety
