Punch Drunk Love - Valentine's Day Special
Saturday, Feb. 14 at 7:30 and 9:30 pm
a/perture cinema, 311 West 4th Street, W-S
Barry Egan's existence has always been free of complication -- perhaps too free! Every day passes exactly like the one before it, with his attention split between his work - he owns a company that markets themed toilet plungers -- and his seven overbearing sisters, who thoroughly enjoy ridiculing and manipulating him at every opportunity. As a result, he never really has any time for himself -- no time for fun and, most certainly, no time for romance. But three random and seemingly unconnected events quickly turn his life upside down. In the span of a single morning he witnesses a bizarre car accident, picks up an abandoned harmonium from the street and meets Lena, a mysterious young woman, who becomes much more than a complicated distraction. Cost: $7.50
