Join us on Monday nights in November and December for Holidays at the Tropic — modern and classic films celebrating Thanksgiving, Hanukkah and Christmas!
The series kicks off with 2003’s PIECES OF APRIL, a charming indie comedy featuring Katie Holmes, Patricia Clarkson, Oliver Platt and a potentially disastrous Thanksgiving dinner.
Against her own better judgment, April Burns has invited her estranged, straight-laced family to her Lower East Side apartment for Thanksgiving. When her oven goes out, she enlists the help of her eccentric neighbors in cooking her fifteen-pound turkey; meanwhile, her parents, siblings and Grandma Dottie embark on a reluctant journey from suburban Pennsylvania into the city.
No one is feeling the holiday spirit — but there are some surprises in store.
