Film Screening: Our Beloved Month of August

Vanderbilt’s International Lens film series keeps on truckin’ and bringing free movies from around the world to Nashville with today’s film – Our Beloved Month of August. This half-fiction/half-documentary comedy about freewhelling across the rural Portuguese landscape while stopping at music festivals and villages ” captures a charming series of vignettes – eccentric and ­cerebral – an arthouse event, yes, but also witty and emotionally engaged.”

Sounds pretty cool. Just come ready to read unless you speak French or Portuguese, because those are the languages the film is in (thus, International Lens). Oh, and it got an 84% on Rotten Tomatoes, which is pretty darn good.

The screening starts at 7pm tonight in Vanderbilt’s Sarratt Cinema.
