Chlotrudis Monday Night at the Movies + Indie Film Round-Up April 2 - 8

Hello Chlotrudis Members!

Gil and Amanda are up as hosts for the Chlotrudis Monday Night at the Movies this week. Please join them at the Kendall Square Cinema for the 7:05 screening of GREENBERG. Ben Stiller stars in the latest film by THE SQUID AND THE WHALE's Noah Baumbach. They'll also be hosting this week's pre-movie dinner at The Friendly Toast at 5:30pm.


GREENBERG brings actor Ben Stiller together with Academy Award-nominated writer/director Noah Baumbach (The Squid and the Whale) to tell the funny and moving tale of Roger Greenberg (Stiller). Single, fortyish and at a crossroads in his life, he finds himself in Los Angeles, house-sitting for six weeks for his more successful/married-with-children brother. In search of a place to restart his life, Greenberg tries to reconnect with old friends including his former bandmate Ivan (Rhys Ifans). But old friends aren’t necessarily still best friends, and Greenberg soon finds himself spending more and more time with his brother’s personal assistant Florence (Greta Gerwig), an aspiring singer and also something of a lost soul. Despite his best attempts not to be drawn in, Greenberg and Florence manage to forge a connection, and Greenberg realizes he may at last have found a reason to be happy.

Director: Noah Baumbach
Cast: Ben Stiller, Greta Gerwig, Rhys Ifans, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Brie Larson, Juno Temple, Chris Messina
