“Eagle vs. Shark” – Jul 1st

Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Jul 1st at 7:45 pm for Eagle vs. Shark at the AMC Loews Dupont Circle 5 . Look for Brian wearing a black Orioles jersey in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.

Lily (Loren Horsley) is a lonely oddball and fast-food waitress who happens to be a hopeless romantic. Then there’s Jarrod (Jemaine Clement), the man of Lily’s dreams, another lonely oddball and video game clerk, who has spent the last decade plotting ultimate vengeance on a bully from his high school past. When these two connect at a “dress as your favorite animal” party, she’s an anemic Shark and he’s a fluffy-headed Eagle. It’s a match that seems made in outcast heaven, but when Lily decides to risk everything for love, her hopes are nearly dashed. After a brief fling, Jarrod dumps Lily because he’s too busy “training” for his all-important payback mission. But neither of them can anticipate just what kind of grit the steadfastly optimistic Lily will show in her heartbreak. As Jarrod’s day of reckoning arrives, and everything hits the fan, Jarrod and Lily will find something that goes beyond romantic fantasies and revenge — faith in who they are.
