Movie Ticket Giveaway! ‘Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close’

posted by Nell Minow

I have free tickets to give away to a January 17 Washington DC-area screening of a new movie based on Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, by Washingtonian Jonathan Safran Foer (Everything Is Illuminated).  Thomas Horn, winner of Teen Jeopardy, is outstanding in his first acting role as Oskar, a boy devastated by the loss of his father on 9/11.   Sandra Bullock and Tom Hanks play his parents and Viola Davis and Max von Sydow are extraordinary as two of the people Oskar meets in his journey to try to make some sense of his loss.

For tickets: log onto gofobo (www.gofobo.com/rsvp) and input the following code: BLF83QD to download your tickets.  Each ticket admits two and there are 20 available.  REMINDER: Screening tickets do not guarantee admittance. Seating is first come, first served, so get there early.

The movie opens on Friday, January 20.  It is rated PG-13 for emotional thematic material, some disturbing images, and language
