Enjoy a special night out with the girls and celebrate this milestone age!
Are you dreading turning the big 4-0? If so, this month’s Ster-Kinekor “Girlfriends Getaway” event has the perfect movie to help you embrace this milestone age in any woman’s life! Grab your girlfriends, sisters, moms and cousins, and head on down to your nearest Ster-Kinekor theatre for an evening of laughter and fun, as you watch a special sneak preview of This is 40 on Wednesday, 24April from 19:00.
This is 40 is a comedy written, co-produced and directed by Judd Apatow, and has been billed as a stand-alone sequel to the 2007 film Knocked Up. The film stars Paul Rudd as Pete and Leslie Mann as Debbie, and follows the lives of this middle-aged married couple as they each face the daunting prospect of turning 40. Add their jobs and two daughters to their already stressed relationship and you have a recipe for chaos and comedy… something many of us can relate to!
Pete owns his own record label, with his friends Ronnie (Chris O’Dowd) and Cat (Lena Dunham) working with him – but the business is struggling financially. The couple also has to deal with the daily demands of their two daughters, Sadie, a young teenager, and eight-year-old Charlotte. For Debbie’s 40th birthday, the couple decides to go away to a resort for a romantic weekend away. However, things don’t pan out quite as planned as they get high after eating some ‘special cookies’, and begin fantasising aloud about different ways they would like to kill each other.
Apatow moves this theme up a notch by taking humours incidents borne out of extreme situations and making them connect with real life in an honest, believable and faithful way.
This is 40 releases to the public at Ster-Kinekor theatres countrywide on Friday, 03 May.
