Romantics Anonymous is a clever romantic comedy directed by Jean-Pierre Améris, starring Benoît Poelvoorde and Isabelle Carré. It's the story of an easily-embarrassed chocolate maker and her boss, a panic-prone chocolate company owner. Will they act on the chemistry they feel for each other? The film won the Magritte Award for Best Foreign Co-Production. Of the film Stephen Holden writes in The New York Times, “ ... the tale of two pathologically shy chocolate makers who are meant for each other but are too afraid to connect is a mug of warm cocoa with marshmallow topping that produces a comfy feel-good glow.” A special reception with chocolate and wine tasting, sponsored by Bailey’s, begins at 6 p.m. A limited-number of $15 tickets includes the film and reception, the $8 ticket is for the film only.
BIG ARTS Monday Night Film Series Sponsors Bank of the Islands, Stan & Visnja Gembicki, and Supporters Sanibel Taxi and Jerry’s Foods of Sanibel.
