Upcoming Film Information:

 

May 18, 2018 The Lunch Box (2013, India, directed by Ritesh Batra, 104 min.)

A mistaken delivery in Mumbai’s famously efficient lunchbox delivery system connects Ila (Nimrat Kaur), a lonely housewife in an unhappy marriage, with Saajan Fernandes (Irrfan Khan), a lonely widower about to retire from a long career as an accountant charged with training his successor, Shaikh (Nawazuddin Siddiqui). Through daily notes passed back and forth in the lunchbox Ila and Sajaan develop a friendship and find comfort in each other’s stories, confessions and fantasies for the future – though they never meet. (#433)

 

The International Film Series will take its customary break during June, July and August and will resume Sept. 7.
