Join for a delicious Russian meal and the movie Everything is Illuminated. Based on the novel by Jonathan Safran Foer about his own experiences. The film stars Elijah Wood as a young Jewish man who wants to learn how his grandfather escaped from the Nazi incursions into Russia. From the U.S., he hires the hip-hop loving Alex and his surly grandfather as tour guides-only to discover, when he arrives in Odessa, that they are perhaps less than dependable. Thus begins a curious, almost metaphysical road trip that carries Foer into the past of his grandfather’s village and the present of his own compulsive habits.
The cost for dinner is $15 per person. Register by Wednesday, November 30 online or by calling 314-469-0700.
