Film Club

Hey everyone, sorry to anyone who was inconvenienced by the Romance Film cancellation yesterday, we will be rescheduling Annie Hall, hopefully for another day in the near future.  Everything else should be according to plan, we will be watching Before Sunrise this Friday.  Try to be here by 4:30 if possible.  Now onto Film Club. This month we will be watching Jean-Pierre Jeunet's Amelie starring Audrey Tautou in the title role.  The film is a whimsical depiction of contemporary Parisian life, set in Montmarte.  It tells the story of a shy waitress, played by Audrey Tautou, who decides to change the lives of those around her for the better, while struggling with her own isolation.  The film was an International co-production between companies in France and Germany.  The film met with critical acclaim and was a box-office success.  Amelie won Best Film at the European Film Awards; it won four Cesar Awards (including Best Film and Best Director), two BAFTA Awards (including Best Original Screenplay), and was nominated for five Academy Awards.
Come on out for a great show!

Here's the trailer:
