WEAR YOUR FAVORITE SHOES!!!

About the movie:

Curtis Hanson (L.A. Confidential, Wonder Boys) has taken Jennifer Weiner’s novel of the same name—a chick-lit touchstone—and transformed its characters into wondrously affecting, funny humans. Working with actors wildly diverse in style, looks, and manner, Hanson makes their family dynamic believable: Cameraon Diaz and Toni Collette play different-as-night-and-day sisters, Shirley MacLaine the Jewish grandmother they barely knew they had.
—Ken Tucker, New York Magazine

“In Her Shoes” is a high-powered drama about deep divisions within a family, healing those divisions and some very funny things that happen along the way. The balance of comedy and drama is a difficult one, but this film does a perfect balancing job. It manages to have the audience laughing and crying at about the same time.” — Robert Roten

Tuesday, January 12, 6:30 pm – 9 pm at the Boulder JCC. $10 per person (includes cosmos, appetizers and dessert). RSVP requested by Friday, January 8: kathryn@boulderjcc.org, or sign up on line at www.boulderjcc.org
