The CHLOTRUDIS SOCIETY FOR INDEPENDENT FILM (CSIF) is pleased to bring to the Boston area on Tuesday May 30th a special presentation of SORRY HATERS, starring Robin Wright Penn, featuring a Q&A with director and screenwriter Jeff Stanzler immediately after. The film will screen in Cambridge at the Brattle Theatre at 7pm, and tickets are $10. Call the box office at (617) 876-6837 for directions or more information.
SORRY HATERS, as described by the film?s website is ?a psychological thriller with political and social undertones set in today?s New York. It?s a story of anger, revenge and retribution so timely it could be true.? An official selection at2005?s Toronto Film Festival, the film has engendered passionate response from myriad critics and reviewers ever since. Perhaps because of the intensity of reactions, both positive and negative, the film has found the distribution process even more uphill than most truly independent films have faced lately.
This despite a truly astonishing performance by Robin Wright Penn, whose portrayal of Phoebe, a seemingly hard-nosed cable TV programming executive, has garnered universal critical acclaim. One night Phoebe climbs into the back of a cab and strikes up conversation with the Muslim driver (Abdellatif Kechiche), leading them both on a journey of twists and turns that will be life-changing. Join Chlotrudis to view this thought-provoking film which leaves you to ponder the dark primal edges of Phoebe?s beliefs and emotions, as well as your own.
