    Film for Thought - 14th June 2017 at 6.30 pm - screening of film 'Green Card' at Sunaparanta

    This Wednesday, 14th June 2017 at 6.30, Sunaparanta will host the screening of ‘Green Card’ at the Centre’s indoor gallery.

    Film: Green Card (1990)

    Directed by : Peter Weir (Picnic at Hanging Rock, Dead Poets' Society, The Truman Show)

    Starring: Andie MacDowell and Gerard Depardieu

    Run-Time: 1 hr 40 mins

    This under-rated romantic comedy gem is even more relevant today given  the current American administration's extreme views on immigration.

    MacDowell and Depardieu are deeply moving as two New York strangers who enter into a mutually beneficial "marriage of convenience" - she gets to keep her apartment and he can pursue the coveted "green card".

    The film was nominated for Best Original Screenplay Oscar in 1991.
