Capital Celluloid 2012 - Day 191: Mon July 9

The Daytrippers (Mottola, 1997): Dalston Roof Park, 7.30pm
This film has been selected by the band Still Corners who will play after the screening. Described in Time Out this week as a "smart, acerbic and melancholy New York comedy-drama" this looks well worth a trip.

Chicago Reader review:
'Loving wife (Hope Davis) finds a love letter in husband Tucci's pocket. He's a publisher, so it may be more innocent than it seems, but then, mysteriously, he's not at the office. The wife, her parents, her sister and the sister's boyfriend cram into the car and drive into the city to confront him. Mottola's dysfunctional family comedy is a bit arch, but sometimes sharp. Indie cinema and Neil Simon intersect on the corner of pathos and farce.' Tom Charity

Here is the trailer.
