Film: Perfect Days (I ženy mají své dny)

(This article expired 08.01.2014.)

On February 13, at 8 pm, the Avalon Theater will screen director Alice Nellis' PERFECT DAYS, a story about a woman who has it all, except for the one thing she desires most―a child.

Perfect Days (I ženy mají své dny)
2011, 100 min., English with Czech subtitles
DIR: Alice Nellis

About the film:
The story begins with Erica's 44th birthday where she fails to receive the biggest bouquet of flowers she can imagine, but she does get a nice card from her ex-sister-in-law, an embarrassing message in a radio show from her ex-husband, cream for wrinkles from her gay friend Richard, and a striptease artist from her unfathomable mother. Thus appears the successful life of Erica Miller, the star of the program 'Before and After'. Erica has almost everything: her own TV program, a renowned hairdressing salon, a large flat with a terrace, and freedom. Yet, with each passing year, she yearns for the one thing she does not have―a child.
