DC Readers: Attend A Special Early Screening Of ‘Flora And Son’

We’re happy to offer our DC readers the chance to attend a very special screening of Flora and Son, the latest musical romantic-comedy from Once director John Carney. The film stars Eve Hewson, Orén Kinlan, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Jack Reynor.

SYNOPSIS: Single mom Flora (Eve Hewson) is at a loss about what to do with her rebellious teenage son, Max (Orén Kinlan). Encouraged by the police to find Max a hobby, Flora tries to occupy him with a beat-up acoustic guitar. With the help of a washed-up LA musician (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), Flora and Max discover the transformative power of music. From the musical mind of John Carney, “Flora and Son” explores the bond between a mother and son on a journey toward a new harmony.

The screening takes place on Monday, September 18th at Alamo Drafthouse DC Bryant Street. The film begins at 7:30pm, but attendees are invited to attend a special reception beginning at 5:30pm. You can RSVP to the event and screening at the Apple site here.

Enjoy the show! Flora and Son opens in select theaters and streaming globally on Apple TV+ on September 29th.
