Movies on the Big Screen as They Were Meant To Be Seen.
A GUN IN EACH HAND
UNA PISTOLA EN CADA MANO
Dir: Cesc Gay
One of the wittiest recent Spanish comedies, this film takes a hilarious look at eight Spanish men entering their 40s and confronting various midlife crises (one husband suspects his wife is cheating on him, while another seeks reconciliation with his ex-wife). You can’t help but love these good-hearted and friendly fellows as they lay their lives bare; though there are many twists in their stories, there are also amusing flashes of familiarity to their situations. The incredible cast includes Jordi Molla, Javier Camara and Eduardo Noriega. In Spanish with English subtitles.
Spanish television star Paco León makes his directorial debut with this multi-award-winning mockumentary about Carmina Barrios, owner of a bar in the suburbs of Seville. From behind her kitchen table, she recounts the many robberies that have plagued her, but the focus soon turns to her dysfunctional family. Like the best Almodóvar films, the tone is often dark and occasionally vulgar - but always outrageously funny. A box office sensation in Spain! In Spanish with English subtitles.
Dir: Diablo Cody
For her directorial debut, Diablo Cody offers a take on religious belief that’s unexpectedly warm but just as funny and quotable as her Oscar-winning script for JUNO. After conservative churchgoer Lamb Mannerheim (Julianne Hough) survives a plane crash, she decides life’s too short to box with God and heads for Sin City, where a bartender (Russell Brand) and a lounge singer (Octavia Spencer) introduce her to some of Las Vegas’ worldly pleasures. With Nick Offerman and Holly Hunter.
