Join the Columbia Club of South Florida for an evening of film and fun at Silverspot Cinema located in Downtown Miami on Sunday, March 10, 2019. We will be viewing Hotel Mumbai. Hotel Mumbai is an Australian/US/Indian thriller film directed by Anthony Maras and written by John Collee and Maras. It is based on the 2009 documentary Surviving Mumbai about the Mumbai attacks in 2008 at the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel in India. The film stars Dev Patel, Armie Hammer, Nazanin Boniadi, Anupam Kher, Tilda Cobham-Hervey, Jason Isaacs, Suhail Nayyar and Natasha Liu Bordizzo. The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival on 7 September 2018.

Movie Sypnosis: Featuring a star-studded cast led by Armie Hammer and Dev Patel, Hotel Mumbai tells the harrowing true story of the 2008 Mumbai terrorists attack on the famed Taj Mahal Palace Hotel. Not for the faint of heart, writer-director Anthony Maras’ expertly crafted debut feature throws the viewer headfirst into the chaos. Utterly riveting from start to finish, this is a film where every frame is packed with tension. No breaks are given, and no moment is free from overwhelming emotion. But most importantly, every frame is touched by an extreme breadth of empathy. With a keen focus on Chef Oberoi and waiter Arjun, who put their lives on the line to keep the hotel guests safe, this is a story of everyday heroes that reminds us of the power of people coming together in the face of unimaginable horror.
Tickets to the movie are $13.00 and must be purchased through MIFF.
