SUSHISAMBA Coral Gables and Coral Gables Art Cinema are transporting guests to Brazil with the premiere of The Skeleton Twins. In this sharply observed dark comedy, Saturday Night Live veterans Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids) and Bill Hader (Adventureland), play twins estranged for over a decade, that reunite after Hader attempts suicide. His turn at recovery in their childhood home where Wiig still lives in upstate New York sets off a series of revelations and reappraisals of their lives, and of those around them – their fractured and neurotic families, lovers, ex-lovers, and more. The Skeleton Twins is at turns comic and poignant, featuring career-defining dramatic roles for these two great comedians. SUSHISAMBA Coral Gables’ Executive Chef David Sears will create a themed menu inspired by Coral Gables Art Cinema’s feature film every month as part of this new collaborative series
