(2013) Written and directed by Joel Hopkins. Pierce Brosnan, Emma Thompson, Timothy Spall, Celia Imrie. (94 min.) DVD.
When a financial shark gobbles the retirement funds of a divorced London couple, they spin a James Bondian caper to recover their money. Barely released in the U.S., this horribly titled film channels screwball comedy and witty ’60s caper films.
“Take a deep breath, relax, and go with it, marveling at how Hopkins managed to put together the perfect cast for this stupid—but brilliant—romantic comedy for the art-house crowd” (filmjournal.com).
We start the season with a collection of silent shorts featuring film comedians and live piano accompaniment. The schedule keeps a lighthearted tone through the spring with an eclectic offering of movies set in London and Paris, most of them introduced by NCMA film curator Laura Boyes.
Fridays, 8 pm
East Building, SECU Auditorium
We recommend you buy tickets in advance.
A bite before the movie? Try Iris after Dark, a new evening experience offered by the NCMA’s Iris restaurant every Friday starting at 5:30 pm.
