*** NOTE: This Film Screens 3 Times - at 2pm, 5pm & 8pm ***
The Psychotronic Film Society of Savannah continues its Summer Series of “Movies Savannah Missed” with a special, one-day-only engagement of this sexy, edgy and very fun Norwegian crime thriller that’s taking audiences by storm all over the world.
This rare chance to see this movie on the big screen before it is released to DVD or Pay-For-View (it’s only showing in a few handfuls of theaters around the country) is made possible by generous sponsorship from our friends at CONNECT SAVANNAH, FIVE POINTS BEVERAGE SHOP on Skidaway Rd. near the McDonald’s (“Purveyors of Fine Boozes” specializing in Craft Beers, Wines and a full range of Liquors), THE BOOK LADY BOOKSTORE & WI-FI CAFE, ANGEL’S BBQ (voted 2012’s BEST LOCAL BBQ JOINT), and LULU’S CHOCOLATE BAR (voted 2012’s BEST LOCAL DESSERTS).
LULU’S IS JUST A FEW BLOCKS AWAY FROM MUSE ARTS WAREHOUSE ON THE CORNER OF MLK AND CONGRESS AND IS OPEN TILL MIDNIGHT ON SUNDAYS. THEY HAVE A FULL BAR AS WELL AS AN AMAZING SELECTION OF HOMEMADE CAKES, COOKIES, TARTS, MOUSSES, PIES AND BROWNIES - SHOW YOUR TICKET STUB THERE AFTER THIS FILM AND RECEIVE A DISCOUNT ON YOUR BILL!
Once more, the PFS of SAV brings you one of the year’s hottest and most talked-about foreign films - during their first domestic theatrical release.
Called the most intriguing Norwegian film since the original GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO TRILOGY (this movie was actually made by the same team responsible for that internationally celebrated saga), HEADHUNTERS is a clever, intelligent, humorous and gripping action-crime-thriller that’s DAZZLING audiences worldwide and earning AMAZING reviews from the top film critics.
THE PLOT: an employment “headhunter” risks everything to obtain a rare painting from a former mercenary. Filled with unexpected twists, impressive performances and stunningly choreographed action sequences, this tightly-wound, adult-oriented suspense flick also packs no small amount of edgy humor.
If you’re a fan of heist/caper movies or sexy, violent rollercoaster rides, this is THE movie to see this year. It’s based on the international best-selling novel by cult Norwegian author JO NESBO.
Hollywood is ALREADY remaking it (produced by and starring, ahem, MARK WAHLBERG) – so don’t miss your chance to see the original version now in its extremely limited U.S. Art-House Cinema Release!
IN NORWEGIAN WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES.
