Netflix Party: Snowpiercer
April 1 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Most of us have Netflix (and now, plenty of time to watch it), but it’s always more fun watching a movie with friends. So jump online and join us for a Netflix Party, where we watch together from different locations, laugh at all the awful plot contrivances and discuss who we think the murderer is, all in real-time!
For our first session, we’ll be watching the incredible 2014 South Korean action film Snowpiercer, starring Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Octavia Spencer, Go Ah-sung, John Hurt and Ed Harris.
The movie takes place aboard the Snowpiercer train, operating on a globe-spanning track, carrying the last remnants of humanity after an attempt at climate engineering in order to stop global warming has unintentionally created a new Snowball Earth. Evans stars as Curtis Everett, a member of the lower-class tail section passengers as they lead a revolution against the elite of the front of the train.
