Lost Weekend V: Friday- Day 2 pt. 2

Aftera break Day 2 continues with ANOTHER advanced screening:

45 YEARS
Advance Screening
Sponsored by Edward Jones - The Office of Mike Cesnik
UK, 2015.  Language: English. Rated R.

A married couple preparing to celebrate their wedding anniversary receive shattering news that promises to forever change the course of their lives.

“Anchored by a sensational Charlotte Rampling as its lead, the movie combines Haigh's perceptive style with shades of Mike Leigh's "Another Year" to create a quietly moving and deceptively tragic look at aging romance haunted by past mysteries.” – Eric Kohn, indieWIRE

Nominated:  Best Actress - Charlotte Rampling | 2015 Academy Awards

 

Next up:

WILD TALES
Sponsored by Advance Planning Associates, LLC
Argentina | Spain, 2014.  Language: Spanish. Rated R.

Six short stories that explore the extremities of human behavior involving people in distress.

“Wild Tales is loose-limbed, rowdy, and exhilarating - in its vibrant lunacy, and with its cartoonishly brash violence, it's a little bit Almodóvar, a little bit Tarantino.” – Stephanie Zacharek, Village Voice

Nominated:  Best Foreign Language Film | 2014 Academy Awards

 

PsychoCinema and the lovely Faye presented our next film:

NINA FOREVER
Sponsored by Psycho Cinema
UK, 2015.  Language: English.  Rated R

After his girlfriend Nina dies in a car crash, Rob unsuccessfully attempts suicide. As he begins to overcome his grief, he falls in love with a coworker, Holly. Their relationship is complicated when Nina, unable to find rest in the afterlife, comes back to life to sarcastically torment them whenever they have sex.

“Nina Forever is the film to follow, and with it, the Blaine Brothers have brought serious game to the screen. It’s clear the film world’s latest sibling tag-team has come to play.” – Michael Nazarewycz, Way Too Indie

Winner: British Independent Film Awards: Most Promising Newcomer

 

And finally, capping of Friday is ITMODcast favorite Mads Mikkelsen!

MEN & CHICKEN
Sponsored by D. Krauss
Denmark | Germany, 2015.  Language: Danish.  Unrated.

Men and Chicken is a black comedy about two outcast brothers, who by getting to know their unknown family also discover a horrible truth about themselves and their relatives.
