Movie Night – Yes Day
June 30 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Yes Day is a 2021 American comedy-drama film directed by Miguel Arteta, from a screenplay and screen story by Justin Malen, based upon the children’s book of the same name by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Tom Lichtenheld. It stars Jennifer Garner, Édgar Ramírez, and Jenna Ortega.
Allison and Carlos Torres are married with three kids: Katie, Nando, and Ellie. When they first met, they were adventurous and said yes to everything. However, once having kids, they feel they must say no to protect their children.
One evening, they are called into a parent-teacher conference at school where they discover Katie and Nando have both submitted school work calling their mom a dictator. Allison expresses frustration that her kids perceive her this way and tells Carlos that she feels he makes her play the role of “bad cop” with their children. Mr. Deacon, a school employee, and father of six overhears and shares with them that he maintains order in his house by having a ‘yes day’ from time to time: one 24-hour period where the parents cannot say no, within reason.
