Banish those January blues and come along to the Dean Crowe Theatre, Athlone on Tuesday January 29 at 8pm , where Athlone Film Club will screen the compelling, high octane Argentinian thriller, Carancho (2010 ).
Sosa (Ricardo Darín ) is an ambulance-chasing personal injury attorney with questionable ethics. Lujan (Martina Gusman ) is a young, idealistic, country doctor new to the city. After Lujan and Sosa’s paths repeatedly cross, the two form an unlikely romance that is threatened by Sosa’s turbulent past. With traffic accidents as the number one cause of death in Argentina, bodies are currency and a black market strives to get rich from the personal tragedies that literally litter the streets.
Carancho was entered into the Un Certain Regard section of the 2010 Cannes Film Festival. It was also selected as the Argentine entry for the best Foreign Language Film at the 83rd Academy Awards.
With some romance, mystery, and suspense, Carancho will appeal to a range of ages and tastes.
There will be pre-screening complimentary wine in the theatre bar from 7.30pm. You can come along as a temporary member on the night. For more information on Athlone Film Club, you can access the website at www.athlonefilmclub.com or email the club at [email protected].
