Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Sep 30th at 4:35 for Stars in Shorts at the Landmark E Street Cinema . Look for Brian A. wearing a green sweater 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.
From the presenters of the popular Academy Award Nominated Shorts program comes Stars in Shorts, a delightful new program featuring the worlds biggest actorsin their smallest roles yet! Judi Dench is a neophyte in the complicated landscape of internet dating in Friend Request Pending. Colin Firth is an unusually needy neighbor to Keira Knightley in the humorously droll Steve, written and directed by Rupert Friend. Lily Tomlin gets lost on her way to the funeral of a woman she never met in The Procession. Jason Alexander is a screenwriter at the end of his rope in the musical short Not Your Time. The acerbic Neil LaBute wrote and directed Sexting, in which Julia Stiles delivers a heartfelt monologue, ending with a hilarious surprise twist. LaBute also wrote the pitch black comedy After-School Special, in which Wes Bentley and Sarah Paulsen have an awkward encounter at an indoor playground. In the science fiction short Prodigal, Kenneth Branagh plays a mysterious and sinister man pursuing a supernaturally talented young girl whose father is determined to protect her at any price. Note: This shorts program contains adult language.
