LuxFilmLab May : Hit Man

Discover may's LuxFilmLab

On Wednesday 8 May at 8pm at Ciné Utopia, Richard Linklater’s latest film will be screened: Hit Man. The American director, who was nominated for an Oscar for Boyhood, returns with a zany comedy starring Glen Powell (Top Gun: Maverick, Everybody Wants Some!!!) and Adria Arjona (Cuban Network, Narcos, True Detective, Andor...).

Synopsis: Gary, a philosophy professor, helps the police in his spare time by posing as a hitman. He meets a woman who has been beaten by her boyfriend. To rescue her, he has to forget all procedures and protocols.

Based on the true story of a fake hitman working for the police, the script was co-written by the director and lead actor Glen Powell.


Tickets for our new LuxFilmLab are available on the Kinepolis webshop at the regular rates at Ciné Utopia*.

About LuxFilmLab:
The first Wednesday of every month, LuxFilmLab – a joint initiative by Luxembourg City Film Festival and Kinepolis – highlights one feature film, chosen in cooperation by LuxFilmFest’s team and the Kinepolis programme team. A member of the Artistic Committee introduces the special LuxFilmLab screenings, with the aim of supporting films whose release dates didn’t allow for them to be selected for the Festival itself but whose artistic qualities would very likely have led to their inclusion in the LuxFilmFest line-up.

*LuxFilmFest isn’t involved in the commercial aspects of these screenings. Access to the screenings and ticket prices are set by Kinepolis..
