Sharing the quirky undertones of the 2009 hit, (500) Days of SummerLOVE IS THICKER THAN WATER shines as a Romeo and Juliet story for the modern age with a touch of prickly humor.

When Arthur (Johnny Flynn), a working class wannabe artist, first meets Vida (Lydia Wilson), a wealthy Jewish cellist, sparks fly. As Vida and Arthur’s relationship grows more serious, however, so too do the complications posed by their very different upbringings. Taking the next step in their relationship, the giddy lovers move in together, knowing that their families are not exactly convinced they have made the right choice.

Peppered with quirky animated sequences and an indie soundtrack that hits all the right notes, LOVE IS THICKER THAN WATER does not fall short in realism as it explores the dynamics of this inter-faith couple’s sincere attempts to make it work in contemporary London. Flynn and Wilson deliver terrific performances as the star-crossed lovers, alongside a solid supporting cast that includes Olivier Award-winning actress Juliet Stevenson (Truly, Madly, Deeply) and Ellie Kendrick (Game of Thrones).

Arrive at The Gershman Y at 11 AM for a bagel buffet and libations!
