About Must See Cinema:

 

Each month, a different curator picks a classic and engaging film that they feel a strong connection to. Movies grab people in a lot of different ways, and our curators picked films that they can speak about passionately. Whether it is because the film made the curator think about something differently, or the curator thinks it is underrated, or simply think it is so great that it deserves a screening, we will show the movie they pick. On the first Thursday of the month is a special night, when the audience has a chance to hear from the curator and talk with her or him about the movie in a post-film discussion.

 

About October’s film, Wristcutters: A Love Story

 

Despondent after breaking up with his girlfriend, Zia (Patrick Fugit) kills himself and wakes up in a bland purgatory populated by other suicides. He takes a job at Kamikaze Pizza and befriends a Russian rocker named Eugene (Shea Whigham) while trying to make the best of a very dull afterlife. Learning that his ex-girlfriend has also killed herself, Zia embarks on a road trip with Eugene to find her, picking up a feisty hitchhiker (Shannyn Sossamon) along the way.
