Movie Night - Tuesday 10th January 2012

posted Jan 5, 2012, 4:55 AM by Margaret Braun
Dear all
How are you?  I hope you all had a very merry Christmas and New Year.  We had a lovely Christmas Eve dinner in a friendly restaurant in the mountains with a few glasses of champagne with the snow falling outside :).  And for the first time in my life I skied Christmas Day and loved it.
If I can't be with my family in Australia then I have decided this is the solution to the Christmas blues, head for the hills, very good distraction. So here we are in 2012!!! I hope its a great year for us all.
So we start the year with two movie options, both at the Rex:  a) SHAME or b) A Dangerous Method.  I have already seen "A Dangerous Method" and really enjoyed it.  I will see "Shame" but we can meet at the restaurant and go over together.   Bring your partners too if you like, just let me know for numbers if they want to come to the restaurant.
Below are the storylines:
a) SHAME - time at Rex is 20:50
Brandon is a 30-something man living in New York who is unable to manage his sex life. After his wayward younger sister moves into his apartment, Brandon's world spirals out of control. From director Steve McQueen (Hunger), Shame is a compelling and timely examination of the nature of need, how we live our lives and the experiences that shape us.  Stars: Michael Fassbender, Carey Mulligan and James Badge Dale
b) A Dangerous Method - time at Rex is 21:00
A look at how the intense relationship between Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud gives birth to psychoanalysis.  Stars: Michael Fassbender, Keira Knightley and Viggo Mortensen 

Note:  Michael Fassbender is in both the films!!   

Cinema Rex:     Bld de Perolles 3


Restaurant:       Saigon, Bld de Perolles 4,  19:00 onwards   


Please let me know by next Monday the 9th if you are attending a) restaurant and movie or b) movie only.
Look forward to hearing from you and hope to see you next Tuesday.
