MOVIE NIGHT 6:30 PM at Michael & Terre’s, 5031 Fillmore Ave., Apt. 102, Alexandria, VA

“Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter… and Spring” (2003)

Under the vigilant eyes of Old Monk (Yeong-su Oh), Child Monk (Jong-ho Kim) learns a hard lesson about the nature of sorrow when his childish games turn cruel in a story that’s divided into five segments, with each season representing a stage in a man’s life. This exquisitely filmed drama directed by Ki-duk Kim is entirely set on and around a tree-lined lake, where a tiny Buddhist monastery floats on a raft amidst a breathtaking landscape. (Korean with English Subtitles) https://youtu.be/jdRkhD_hmo0 (trailer)

Featuring:  EAT WITH ME

MV5BMTU1NjgxMzU2NF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNzMzNDgxNDE@._V1_UY268_CR0,0,182,268_AL_Emma only knows one way to add spice to her life… by squirting it from a bottle of hot sauce. The rest of her life is cushy but bland: scrambled egg whites, decaffeinated coffee and her husband, Ray. She’s had enough and runs away from home. Her estranged son, Elliot, finds her lurking outside his restaurant with suitcase in hand. They try to start over again as mother and son in this odd-couple living situation, but she’s old-fashioned, and he’s gay. Between them are years of awkward moments and unspoken tensions. Feeling lonely, Emma accidentally befriends the lady next door who’s so eccentric that Emma’s way over her head. Meanwhile, a passionate encounter with a man in a bar turns Elliot’s fear of commitment on its head. With dumplings, dessert, whiskey, and even Ecstasy in front of them, will they give in to their indulgences? And can mother and son reconcile while struggling to discover their own appetites for life?
