Instructions Not Included

This Sunday, September 21 the North County Film Club will be presenting the film Instructions Not Included, the highest grossing Mexican film ever released in the U.S.

This Chaplinesque mixture of laughter, pathos and tears is written and directed by its star, Eugenio Derbez, one of Mexico's most prominent and beloved television stars.

The story follows unexpected twists in the life of its protagonist Valentin, a ladies man with bigtime daddy issues whose life is upended when one of his conquests drops a baby he's sired off on his doorstep.  Deciding to raise the child, he goes to America and through a series of comic incidents finds professional fulfillment as a stuntman and personal happiness as a father until the mother's return and a custody hearing threatens the arrangement.

The film is at the Carmike (formerly Digiplex) Mission Marketplace theater in Oceanside at College and Highway 76.  It begins at 3pm.  Please join us and stay for a Q&A afterwords.

Hope to see you there.

Don't forget to send in your nominations for next season's films. Email your selections to ncfilmclub.com or bring them with you Sunday. This Sunday, Sept. 21 is the deadline for nominations.
