Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Sep 11th at 5:40pm for The Hollars at the Landmark E Street Cinema . Look for Brian F. wearing a black REI t-shirt 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 family drama The Hollars, John Hollar (director John Krasinski), a struggling NYC artist, is forced to navigate the small middle-American town he left behind when news of his mothers illness brings him home. Back in the house he grew up in, John is immediately swept up in the problems of his dysfunctional family, high school rival and an over-eager ex-girlfriend as he faces impending fatherhood with his girlfriend in New York. At turns hilarious and heartbreaking, Krasinskis second feature The Hollars is a poignant look at the bonds of family and friendship. Also starring Margo Martindale, Richard Jenkins, Sharlto Copley, Anna Kendrick, Charlie Day, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Josh Groban and Randall Park.
