Join host and indie film fan, Glen Haley, as he revisits the best of independent film from various decades. We kick off our inaugural series with the 2000’s. This decade brought us iconic work from Sophia Coppola (Priscilla, The Virgin Suicides), Alexander Payne (The Holdovers, Election), and Wes Anderson (Asteroid City, The Grand Budapest Hotel), introduced us to the feature film directorial debut of Gina Prince-Bythewood (The Secret Life of Bees, The Woman King), and reminded us of the quirky genius of Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Science of Sleep). Haley will lead a pre-film discussion sharing insights and personal reflections on each film. Arrive early for the preshow talk (complimentary movie snacks provided) and experience some of the best in independent film.

Doors open at 1:30 pm. Preshow Talk begins at 2:00 pm.

SYNOPSIS:
Struggling writer and wine enthusiast Miles (Paul Giamatti) takes his engaged friend, Jack (Thomas Haden Church), on a trip to wine country for a last single-guy bonding experience. While Miles wants to relax and enjoy the wine, Jack is in search of a fling before his wedding. Soon Jack is sleeping with Stephanie (Sandra Oh), while her friend Maya (Virginia Madsen) connects with Miles. When Miles lets slip that Jack is getting married, both women are furious, sending the trip into disarray.
