TT Cinema: About a Boy Screening
The loved-up vibes continue here at TT, as we prepare to put on a screening of everybody’s favourite romantic coming-of-age comedy-drama, the Weitz brothers’ About a Boy.
Initially adapted from the eponymous 1998 best-selling novel by Nick Hornby, the film follows Will (Hugh Grant), a rich, child-free and irresponsible Londoner in his thirties who, in search of available women, invents an imaginary son and starts attending single parent meetings.
As a result of one of his liaisons, he meets Marcus (Nicholas Hoult), an odd 12-year-old boy with problems at school. Gradually, Will and Marcus become friends. As Will teaches Marcus how to be a cool kid, Marcus helps Will to finally grow up.
Upon its release back in 2002, About a Boy was received with near universal acclaim, smashing its box office targets and picking up two BAFTA nominations, two Golden Globe nominations, as well as an Academy Award nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay.
Despite unfortunately not winning any of the above, it certainly won over the crowds – this writer included – and quickly cemented its place as a bona-fide classic of British film.
Tickets are available at £15 a head, or you can grab two for £20 when you use the code ‘boy’ at checkout. Complimentary cocktail included as standard.
Arrival – Attendees will arrive through the doors of our liquor store at 6:30pm to allow time for them to settle in and purchase any beer, wine, or other refreshments they like. Alternatively, guests can make their way down into our Cellar Bar to select their complimentary cocktail for the night.
Screening – Then, guests will be invited upstairs to our new 52-seater cinema room, where at 7pm sharp the film will begin.
Afters – After the show, attendees will be invited back down to the Cellar Bar, where you can drink, discuss, and continue your evening. Reservations recommended, although not mandatory.
