THANK YOU FOR SMOKING
Sunday, November 6. Bagels at 10 am | Film at 11 am | Members $10 | Public $15 

A hilarious satire following the machinations of Big Tobacco’s chief spokesman, Nick Naylor, who spins on behalf of cigarettes while trying to remain a role model for his twelve-year-old son.

Based on Christopher Buckley’s acclaimed 1994 novel of the same title and adapted for the screen by Jason Reitman, Thank You for Smoking is a fiercely satirical look at today’s culture of spin! Aaron Eckhart stars as Nick Naylor, a sexy, charismatic spin-doctor for Big Tobacco who’ll fight to protect America’s right to smoke - even if it kills him. When he incurs the wrath of a senator (William H. Macy) bent on snuffing out cigarettes, Nick’s powers of “filtering the truth” will be put to the test. With a smokin’ all-star cast that includes Rob Lowe, Maria Bello, Katie Holmes, Adam Brody and Robert Duvall, this hilarious comedy will prove seriously
addictive! (USA, 2005, 92 min., Rated R, DCP | Dir. Jason Reitman)
