Political satire 'In the Loop' at Little Theatre
Oct. 30, 2009
KALAMAZOO--Kalamazoo Film Society presents "In the Loop" Friday through Sunday, Nov. 6-8, in the Little Theatre at Western Michigan University.
Show times are 7 and 9:30 p.m. Friday; 4:30, 7 and 9:30 p.m. Saturday; and 2:30, 5 and 7:15 p.m. Sunday. General admission is $5 and $3 for students with a valid ID.
Art imitates life in this witty political satire starring Peter Capaldi, Tom Hollander, Gina McKee and James Gandolfini. The fast-paced comedy follows the activities of a British diplomatic staff in Washington, D.C., prior to the invasion of Iraq. Although the laughs arrive at a steady pace, the subtext that underlies them is sobering. The difference between a war of necessity and a war of choice may mean the difference between life and death--just not for those making the decisions.
Directed by Armando Iannucci, the 2009 film is shown in English and has a run time of 106 minutes. It is not rated, but does contain coarse language.
