What You'll Get
Movies are like dreams: they come to us in the dark, they play on our subconscious fears and desires, and the best ones prominently feature Hall of Fame baseball players lecturing children on how to have fun in small towns. Dream a little dream on the big silver screen with today's Groupon: for $10, you get two tickets to see one film (a $22 value) at The Minneapolis-St. Paul International Film Festival, presented by The Film Society of Minneapolis-St. Paul. Films will be screened at the St. Anthony Main Theatre on Southeast Main Street. This Groupon is valid for any film playing April 15 through May 4.
The Minneapolis-St. Paul International Film Festival brings more than 170 films from 50-plus countries to St. Anthony Main Theatre's five screens. Viewers' eyeballs can end visual droughts with a satisfying slurp of desert scenery from the cup of El Infierno, a Coen brothers-esque black comedy that follows a recently deported man's descent into the criminal underworld of a small town in Mexico. In the French biopic Dumas, Gerard Depardieu enthralls fans of swashbuckling prose and nasal vowels as novelist Alexander Dumas, the beloved adventure author and hated inventor of the preposition. Meanwhile, the Chinese blockbuster drama Aftershock, winner of Best Film and Best Actor at the Asia Pacific Screen Awards, follows the struggles of two earthquake survivors and tumult of the ensuing decades of their lives with eye-popping special effects.
