Cinema Cafe: Last Holiday

Please plan to join us this Friday, March 20th, for Cinema Cafe’s presentation of Last Holiday, a 2006 comedy staring Queen Latifah, LL Cool J, Timothy Hutton and Gerard Depardieu.

Georgia Byrd (Queen Latifah) clerks at a New Orleans department store. She defers pleasure: cooks gourmet meals, eats Lean Cuisine; likes a co-worker (LL Cool J) in silence; has savings, but hasn't left Louisiana. All that changes when a CT Scan discloses she has three weeks to live. She cashes her savings and heads to Europe's Grandhotel Pupp, where Chef Didier (Gerard Depardieu) presides. She checks into the Presidential Suite, orders everything on the menu, snowboards, and comes to the attention of the chef and the hotel's powerful American guests: a Congressman, a Senator, a retail magnate, and his mistress. She has nothing to lose, so she tells them what she thinks. Will the truth set them free? Oh, the possibilities….

The film screening is free! Concessions will be available starting at 6:30, and the film will roll at 7:00. All are invited to stay for a few minutes after the film ends for an informal discussion of the themes displayed in the film.

If you have any questions, please call Daniel Hudson. 770.595.5624 We’re looking forward to seeing you this Friday for this FUN event!
