“Afternoon Delight” – Sep 15th

Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Sep 15th at 5:00pm for Afternoon Delight at the Landmark Bethesda Row . Look for Brian F. wearing a blue shirt and khaki shorts 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.

Rachel (Kathryn Hahn) is a quick-witted and lovable, yet tightly coiled, thirty-something steeped in the creative class of Los Angeles’ bohemian, affluent Silver Lake neighborhood. Everything looks just rightchic modernist home, successful husband (Josh Radnor), adorable child, hipster wardrobe. So why is she going out of her gourd with ennui? Deadened by the stultifying realities of preschool auctions, a lackluster sex life, and career that’s gone kaput, Rachel visits a strip club to spice up her marriage and meets McKenna (Juno Temple), a stripper whom she becomes obsessed with saving. She decides to adopt McKenna as her live-in nanny, and this bold move unleashes unimagined and colorful waves of change into her life and community. Also starring Jane Lynch, Afternoon Delight is written and directed by Jill Soloway, winner of the Directing Award in the U.S. Dramatic Competition at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.
