Chlotrudis Tuesday Night at the Movies + Indie Film Round-Up March 5 - 11

Hello Chlotrudis Members! We're glad that even though a snow storm curtailed Board member Vicky Oleskey's Chlotrudis Movie of the Week deubt, she's back again for another try. This week join Vicky at the Coolidge Corner Theatre on Tuesday, March 9 for the 7pm screening of THE GHOST WRITER. Starring Ewan McGregor, Pierce Brosnan, Olivia Williams and Kim Catrall, THE GHOST WRITER is a thriller from directxor Roman Polanski. And Vicki will be meeting interested movie-goers for dinner at Mr. Sushi at 5:30pm.
The Ghost Writer
A gifted author hired to ghostwrite the memoirs of a controversial former British Prime Minister becomes a hunted man when he uncovers explosive secrets about the past. Ewan McGregor, Pierce Brosnan, Olivia Williams and Kim Catrall star in THE GHOST WRITER, a taut, suspenseful thriller from the Oscar®-winning director of THE PIANO. The Ghost (Ewan McGregor) senses something's not right from the minute he gets the lucrative assignment to complete Adam Lang's (Pierce Brosnan) autobiography. For starters, the previous ghostwriter, a longtime aide to the ex-Prime Minister, is dead—an apparent suicide victim. As Lang becomes engulfed in a scandal over his administration's harsh counter-terrorism tactics, The Ghost digs into the charismatic politician's past, discovering clues that he may be hiding something far more shocking than the current allegations against him. Directed by Roman Polanski With Ewan McGregor, Pierce Brosnan, Olivia Williams, Kim Cattrall Check out the trailer: It might be sold out... in fact, it's pretty close, but you should check with the Brattle Theatre before you miss the second best party of the year! (We all know what the best party is, don't we?) This weekend celebrate with the Brattle at their 10th Anniversary Oscar Party! This year, to celebrate the 10th anniversary, their Special Pre-Party & Fundraiser will feature special guest, producer/director James Ivory! Support the Brattle Film Foundation and the Brattle Theatre by attending their exclusive party and silent auction fundraiser and meet director James Ivory. Then stay and watch the awards! The festivities kick off at 5:30pm on Sunday March 7. I'm part of the Oscar Party's Host Committee, so I do hope you will join me for a great time and an opportunity to support the Brattle as well. Your $75 ticket will admit you to the special pre-party for some delicious hors d'oeuvres, open bar, and attendance at the official Oscar broadcast, as well as an opportunity to participate in the Brattle's Silent Auction and win some really terrific prizes.
