Screening: Sicario + Q&A
Film screening followed by a Q&A session
Join The Frontline Club for a special screening of Sicario, followed by a Q&A on relations between the US and Mexico with journalist Ed Vulliamy. Emily Blunt and Benicio Del Toro both deliver exceptional performances in a film that is sending audiences home with clammy palms and raised heart-rates. Set in the lawless border area between the US and Mexico, an FBI agent (Blunt) and a mysterious consultant (Del Toro) are enlisted to help tackle the escalating war on drugs. What follows will affect them for the rest of their lives. This event is hosted by The Frontline Club. With a history rooted in the freelance video news industry, the Club exists to promote freedom of expression and supports journalists, cameramen and photographers who risk their lives in the course of their work. "This is one of the best movies of the year." – Chicago Sun Times "We can thank Villeneuve and rookie screenwriter Taylor Sheridan's tight script, but also Blunt, Brolin and Del Toro, each of whom has never been better." – Globe And Mail Certificate 15. Runtime: 2 hours.
"A beautifully murky, hard-edged thriller. Quite simply, one of the best films of the year."
