I'm heading into the city tomorrow to see Wilbur Wants To Kill Himself at the Dendy.

This is a beautifully written tale of two Glaswegian brothers, from writer/director Lone Scherfig (Italian For Beginners). Brothers, Harbour and Wilbur, are inseparable, despite the fact that the goodhearted Harbour has spent his whole life trying to take care of his handsome and charming, but chronically suicidal little brother, Wilbur. When, in their thirties, they inherit their father's used bookstore, everything changes as their lives become entangled with regular customer Alice and her daughter Mary. Harbour falls in love with Alice, while the idealistic young Mary captures Wilbur's heart, and just may help save his life - or help him find peace. Winner of an Audience Award at this year's Sydney Film Festival, this is a comic and touching story that exposes a surprisingly peculiar and encouraging view of life.

I'm aiming for the 1:20 screening, but if anyone else is interested there's a 6:20 screening that would work just as well. 6:20 screening it is.

If anyone wants to come I have a free pass that can cut the cost down to about $4.50 apiece for one person (since Monday is the Dendy's equivalent of Tightarse Tuesday). All other tickets would be $9.

If you're interested let me know. I'm going either way.
