U.S., 2022, 104 min, 4K DCP, Dir. Jeff Baena, Not Rated, IFC Films
"What seems headed for a romantic thriller takes a fast U-turn into other directions. It works." — Randy Myers, The Mercury News
"A bizarro, quirk-laden comedy with an extremely off-kilter sense of humor, Spin Me Round feels like a cult favorite in-the-making." — Adam Graham, Detroit News
It sounds like the adventure of a lifetime: an all-expenses-paid trip to Italy, where a lucky few managers from an American fast-casual restaurant chain will get a crash course in the culinary arts against the backdrop of a scenic villa. Unfortunately, the getaway doesn’t always match the brochure, and Amber (Alison Brie) soon finds herself juggling mundane training exercises, an unexpected love triangle, and maybe an insidious conspiracy during her sojourn.
Miami native Jeff Baena and Alison Brie previously collaborated on Horse Girl together, which Brie starred in and co-wrote with Baena, who directed. Brie also appeared in Baena’s The Little Hours and Joshy. This raucous comedy also features Molly Shannon, Zach Woods, Aubrey Plaza, Fred Armisen, Alessandro Nivola and Tim Heidecker.
Tickets to these screenings are $12.75 and under. Cinema members pay only $8.
