In 2009 NASA discovered the possibility of alien life within our solar system. A probe was launched to collect samples from Europa, one of Jupiter’s moons, but it crashed upon re-entry over Central America. Soon after, new life forms began to appear there and half of Mexico was quarantined as an Infected Zone. Today, the American and Mexican military still struggle to contain the extraterrestrial “creatures.” After six years, they’re no longer aliens—they’re residents. Our story begins when a U.S. photojournalist Andrew Kaulder (Scoot McNairy, In Search of a Midnight Kiss) agrees to escort a shaken American tourist Sam Wynden (Whitney Able) through the Infected Zone in Mexico to the safety of the U.S. border. Written and directed by Gareth Edwards, the sci-fi thriller Monsters has been widely acclaimed at film festivals worldwide.

“A Single Man” – Dec 27

Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club, this Sunday, Dec 27 at 4:15 pm, for “A Single Man” at the Landmark E Street Cinema. Look for Craig, wearing a black baseball cap with an orange P, in the upstairs lobby (behind the ticket counter) about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion. In Los Angeles 1962, we follow 52-year-old English college professor George Falconer (Colin Firth) through a single day, as he struggles to find meaning after the death of his long-time partner, Jim (Matthew Goode). Dwelling on the past, George is consoled by his closest friend Charley (Julianne Moore), a 48-year-old beauty wrestling with her own questions about the future. Meanwhile, a young student of George’s, Kenny (Nicholas Hoult), coming to terms with his true nature, stalks George as a kindred spirit. Directed by Tom Ford, A Single Man is a tale of love, interrupted by the isolation of the human condition, and of the importance of the smaller moments in life.
