Chlotrudis Tuesday Night at the Movies + Indie Film Round-Up, November 27 - December 4

Hello, Chlotrudis Members!

Join us on Tuesday, December 1, for the 7:05pm screening of THE ROAD at the Kendall Square Cinema. Based on Cormac McCarthy's award-winning, post-apocalyptic novel, THE ROAD focuses on a father and son trying to make their way across the United States after a devastating catastrophe has struck. John Hillcoat, director of the Chlotrudis Awards-winning film THE PROPOSITION directs. We'll grab dinner beforehand at the Friendly Toast at 5:30pm if you can join us.

Viggo Mortensen leads a stellar cast (including Charlize Theron, Robert Duvall and Guy Pearce) in the epic, post-apocalyptic tale of the survival of a father (Moretensen) and his young son (newcomer Kodi Smit-McPhee) as they journey across a barren America that was destroyed by a mysterious cataclysm. A masterpiece of adventure, The Road is adapted from author Cormac McCarthy's (NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN) beloved, best-selling and Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, which boldly imagines a future in which men are pushed to the worst and the best that they are capable of—a future in which father and son are sustained by love. Directed by John Hillcoat (THE PROPOSITION).

Check out the trailer:

As the year comes to a close, Chlotrudis members start to think about nominations! That's right, with nominations do in mid-January, Chlotrudis members need to start counting up the number of 2009 films they've seen and find out if they're eligible to nominate! To assist in that process, Chlotrudis has been seeking out screeners. We've gotten our first batch from Peg Aloi, Ned Hinkle and the Brattle Theatre, and Samuel Goldwyn (thanks to all of you!) To find out what screeners are available, and how to request a screener to borrow, visit our members page. You will be asked for a login and password, and if you don't know what that is, please contact me. We've got a nice assortment of DVD screeners, so get your name on a list and start watching movies!

See you at the Movies!
Michael
