See the hilarious “Flim, the Movie”, one day before its New York, L.A. Miami and Chicago premieres and its worldwide release, at the Warch Cinema (Warch Campus Center – Lawrence University – Appleton, WI) Thursday, June 4th @ 7 PM. This critically acclaimed and award winning film was a big hit at the Raindance Film Festival in London and is a BIFA nominated film (British Independent Film Award) as the Best British Independent Film (Raindance Award) of 2014….sharing the award dais with acclaimed fellow nominees “The Imitation Game’, “Boyhood” along with nominated actors Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightly, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Michael Fassbender etc etc. “Flim the Movie” was a labor of love for director/star Raffaello Degruttola (“Saving Private Ryan”, “Rush”, “Quantum of Solace”) and was filmed over a five year span in such far-flung locales as London, UK, Budapest, Hungary and Los Angeles, CA) Starring a bevy of notable British film stars and BBC TV stars along with Appleton’s very own Dan Davies who co-stars as a clueless and easily flummoxed version of himself. Speaking of clueless…Dan Davies will be there to host an intro, meet and greet and a Q & A. If available, a Skype with Raffaello Degrutolla is also in the works.
Sponsored by the Appleton/Fox Cities Kiwanis Club…a large portion of the proceeds will go to this very deserving community based non-profit. Tickets are $10 and seating is limited to 135 tickets.
* This film has not been rated yet but is very similar to a PG-13 or a TV-14 movie. (No violence, no nudity, but it has an implied and referred to adult situation and some “salty” language as those wonderfully descriptive Brits sometimes engage in!)
