Win Passes to see “The Boys Are Back”
This is the place to win passes for two to see “The Boys Are Back,” starring Clive Owen, on Wednesday, October 7 at 7:30 at the Landmark Keystone Art Cinema (at The Fashion Mall at Keystone at The Crossing).
Inspired by a true story, THE BOYS ARE BACK is a deeply moving, wryly confessional tale of fatherhood that intimately evokes both the fragility and wonders of family life. It follows a witty, wisecracking, action-oriented sportswriter (Academy Award® nominee and Golden Globe® winner CLIVE OWEN) who, in the wake of his wife’s tragic death, finds himself in a sudden, stultifying state of single parenthood. With turbulent emotions swirling just below the surface, Joe Warr throws himself into the only child-rearing philosophy he thinks has a shot at bringing joy back into their lives: “just say yes.” Raising two boys – a curious six year-old (NICHOLAS MCANULTY) and a rebel teen (GEORGE MACKAY) from a previous marriage — in a household devoid of feminine influence, and with an unabashed lack of rules, life becomes exuberant, instinctual, reckless . . . and on the constant verge of disaster.
United by unspoken love, conflicted by fierce feelings and in search of a road forward, the three multi-generational boys of the Warr household, father and sons alike, must each find their own way, however tenuous, to grow up. Their story is not just about the transforming power of a family crisis — but the unavoidable grace of everyday life and love that gets them through.

Here is the answer to last week’s trivia question:
The Woody Harrelson-starring film “White Men Can’t Jump” did more to change society than many people know. It changed the way Americans talked about race and confirmed the 90s as the decade where basketball and its players were king, and turned a simple game of pickup basketball into an unrelenting rapid-fire freestyle smack-talking contest.
Race was a huge theme in the film, and at one point Sidney Deane (played by Wesley Snipes) claimed that Billy Hoyle (Harrelson), and all white people, can listen to, but can’t “hear” a certain legendary musician. Whom did he say white people can’t “hear”?
Snipes claimed that white people can listen to, but can’t hear, Jimi Hendrix (in the resulting debate, Rosie Perez noted that the rest of Jimi Hendrix’s band was white).
