Due to a change in release dates, we will be screening The Five-Year Engagement instead of Moonrise Kingdom this Friday.
The director and writer/star of Forgetting Sarah Marshall reteam for the irreverent comedy The Five-Year Engagement. Beginning where most romantic comedies end, the film looks at what happens when an engaged couple, Jason Segel and Emily Blunt, keeps getting tripped up on the long walk down the aisle. Rated R.
