Film Screening: "Inglourious Basterds" (Quentin Tarantino, 2009, 153 min, USA/Germany, in English, Color, DCP) / "Inglourious Basterds" begins in German-occupied France, where Shosanna Dreyfus witnesses the execution of her family at the hand of Nazi Colonel Hans Landa. Shosanna narrowly escapes and flees to Paris, where she forges a new identity as the owner and operator of a cinema. Elsewhere in Europe, Lieutenant Aldo Raine organizes a group of Jewish soldiers to engage in targeted acts of retribution. Known to their enemy as "The Basterds," Raine's squad joins German actress and undercover agent Bridget Von Hammersmark on a mission to take down the leaders of The Third Reich. Fates converge under a cinema marquee, where Shosanna is poised to carry out a revenge plan of her own. / -- Oscar Winner for Actor in a Supporting role at Academy Awards (2010)! / -- 7 Oscar Nominations, including for Best Motion Picture and Best Achievement in Directing (2010)! / "It all makes for one bloody, nasty, funny film. And despite its indulgences, one that will rightly be hailed as a comeback for its rockstar director." - Russell Baillie, New Zealand Herald / Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KnrRy6kSFF0
