(Not Rated 2017 119 min.)
A compelling redemption story of a disgraced Australian rugby star whose bottomed-out life haltingly turns around when he is "adopted" by a widower and his daughter. A quite moving portrayal of working class Sydney not typically seen by American audiences.
This program also includes the short: The Best and Worst Days of George Morales' Unnaturally Long Life [24 minutes]
George and Susie Morales own a restaurant in East Los Angeles and have been happily married for nearly forty years. They are also immortal. Their secret lies in a recipe for chicken mole. It has kept them from aging. It has kept them together. But when Susie decides that she would like to finally end her life, George is forced to make a difficult decision: join her in death, or face eternity alone. A lovely, allegorical film written and shot in a style that is a throwback to a gentler version of storytelling. Elegant, tender and slyly humorous all at the same time.
All tickets are $12
