Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Dec 13th at 3:00pm for 45 Years at the AFI Silver . Look for Laine wearing a purple jacket 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.

Plans for Kate (Charlotte Rampling) and Geoff (Tom Courtenay) Mercers 45th anniversary party are thrown 
into turmoil at the arrival of a letter informing Geoff that the body of his girlfriend Katya has been recovered from the mountain where she fell to her death 50 years ago. Shaken, Geoff withdraws, taking inventory of memories long shelved away. The news affects Kate just as deeply, as Geoffs
 state of distraction breeds uncertainty and increasingly angrier emotions. Directed and written by Andrew Haigh (WEEKEND, HBO series LOOKING).
