Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Sep 21st at 5:30 pm for The Skeleton Twins at the Landmark E Street Cinema . Look for Laine wearing a black and white striped skirt 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.
In the hilarious and emotional The Skeleton Twins, twins Maggie (Kristen Wiig, Bridesmaids) and Milo (Bill Hader, “Saturday Night Live”) lead separate lives on opposite sides of the country. After many years of estrangement, both feel that they’re at the end of their ropes, and an unexpected reunion forces them to confront how their lives went so wrong. For Maggie, that means re-examining her marriage to sweet “nature frat boy” Lance (Luke Wilson) and her own self-destructive tendencies, while Milo must face the pain of an early heartbreak he never quite got past. As the twins’ reunion reinvigorates them both, they realize the key to fixing their lives just may lie in accepting the past and mending their relationship with each other. Also starring Ty Burrell (“Modern Family”).
