Out At The Movies: Passages

Celebrated filmmaker Ira Sachs (Love is Strange) makes a breathtaking return with Passages, a fresh, honest, and brutally funny take on messy modern relationships starring Franz Rogowski (Great Freedom), Ben Whishaw (Women Talking), and Adèle Exarchopoulos (Blue Is the Warmest Colour). Set in Paris, this seductive drama tells the story of Tomas (Rogowski) and Martin (Whishaw), a gay couple whose marriage is thrown into crisis when Tomas begins a passionate affair with Agathe (Exarchopoulos), a younger woman he meets after completing his latest film.

Join OUT at The MOVIES group to see Passages at the Jacob Burns Film Center, August 20-Sunday. The group gathers at 4:20 for 4:30 showing. Group meets up afterward at a nearby eatery.
