Friday Night Flicks Presents: It's Complicated

Friday, April 30th at 6:30 p.m. in the Collins Room

It's Complicated movie posterJane (Meryl Streep) is the mother of three grown kids, owns a thriving Santa Barbara bakery/restaurant and has—after a decade of divorce—an amicable relationship with her ex-husband, attorney Jake (Alec Baldwin.) But when Jane and Jake find themselves out of town for their son’s college graduation, things start to get complicated. An innocent meal together turns into the unimaginable—an affair. With Jake remarried to the much younger Agnes, Jane is now, of all things, the other woman. Caught in the middle of their renewed romance is Adam, an architect hired to remodel Jane's kitchen. Healing from a divorce of his own, Adam starts to fall for Jane, but soon realizes he's become part of a love triangle. Should Jane and Jake move on with their lives, or is love truly lovelier the second time around? It's... complicated. Rated: R

Friday Night Flicks Presents: Sherlock Holmes

Friday, April 23rd at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room

Sherlock Holmes movie posterA brawny, visually arresting period adventure. Robert Downey Jr. is an intriguing choice for the Great Detective, and his trademark bristling energy and off-kilter humor do much to sell this reinvented notion of Holmes. Jude Law is equally well-equipped as a more active Dr. Watson, and together, they make for an engaging team. Downey and Law's amped-up Holmes and Watson are built for the challenge of riding this roller coaster with the audience. Rated: PG-13
