MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
For our second Holiday Classic Film Night the Film Society will be screening ELF at the Film Center. You can expect all the usual treats that would appear at any Elf gathering (the four main food groups) : candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup!
This humorous film is sure to delight the entire family!
For his sophomore stab at directing, actor/writer/director Jon Favreau (Swingers, Made), took on this holiday comedy starring Saturday Night Live-alum Will Ferrell.
Ferrell stars as Buddy, who as a baby in an orphanage was stowed away in Santa’s sack and ended up at the North Pole. Later, as an adult human who happened to be raised by elves, Santa allows him to go to New York City to find his birth father, Walter Hobbs.
“I passed through the seven levels of the Candy Cane forest, through the sea of swirly twirly gum drops, and then I walked through the Lincoln Tunnel.”
Hobbs, on Santa’s naughty list for being a heartless jerk, had no idea that Buddy was even born. Buddy, meanwhile, experiences the delights of New York City (and human culture) as only an elf can. When Walter’s relationship with Buddy interferes with his job, he is forced to reevaluate his priorities.
Elf also stars James Caan, Mary Steenburgen, Zooey Deschanel, and Bob Newhart.
"A disarmingly funny holiday comedy." -Owen Gleiberman ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
"Some humour might sail over the heads of the very young, but there's a higher chuckle rate for the grown-ups than much dread 'family' fare." Trevor Johnston TIME OUT
"A family-friendly, funny and heartwarming holiday film with a great heart that is well worth watching more than once." -Vic Holtreman SCREENRANT
