SUITOR (Nápadník)
by Academy-Award Nomintated director Jan Hřebejk (Divided We Fall)
Tuesday April 23rd, 7pm, Violet Crown — TICKETS HERE
Set in the late 1950s, the communist regime controls Czechoslovakia, and a gap has opened between the prewar and postwar generations. City girl Daniela meets country boy Mirek while staying at the garden store run by her aunt and uncle. Love begins to bloom, but Daniela’s father is furious. He has other plans for his daughter, intent on making the perfect match with an educated catch. The romantic comedy is the final instalment of director Hřebejk’s Garden Store trilogy, following three families: an air radio operator, a hair salon owner, and a garden store proprietor against the backdrop of the most dramatic periods of the last century.
