Open mic night, with or without instrument. ARIES (Mar 21 to Apr 19) A little "wool-gathering" for the usually productive Lamb is all right if it helps you unwind. But be careful: Too much daydreaming can put you behind schedule in your work. TAURUS (Apr 20 to May 20) A work problem is close to being resolved. Now you can go ahead and celebrate the week, accepting invitations from friends who enjoy your company. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Getting your new plan accepted won't be a major hassle if you have the facts to back it up. Your supporters are also prepared to help you make your case. Good luck. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Dealing with a pesky job problem might be time-consuming but necessary. The sooner you get this situation settled, the sooner you can move on to other matters. LEO (July 23 to Aug 22) Career advancement is favored thanks to your impressive work record. On the personal side, you should soon hear some good news about an ailing family member. VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sept 22) There might be mixed signals from a certain someone who doesn't seem all that certain about his or her intentions. Best to sort it all out before it becomes more confusing. LIBRA (Sept 23 to Oct 22) Get all the facts about that investment "opportunity" before you put as little as one dollar into it. There could be hidden problems that could prove costly. SCORPIO (Oct 23 to Nov 21) Compromising on a matter you feel strongly about not only ends the impasse but can be a win-win deal for all. Remember: Scorpios do well with change. SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21) With all the demands you currently have to deal with, accepting the help of family and friends could be the wisest course to take at this time. CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19) Recent upsetting incidents might have left you with a big gap in your self-assurance. Refill it by spending time with those who know how worthy you really are. AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18) A dispute about money needs to be resolved quickly, before it festers into something more serious. Consider asking an impartial colleague to mediate the matter. PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20) A soft approach could be more effective than making a loud demand for the information you need. You might even find yourself with more data than you expected.

A Harvard University study found that just one in a million lunchboxes is ever delivered to the wrong address. This is the story of that one lunchbox. Ila (Nimrat Kaur) is a middle class Mumbai housewife who has been carefully preparing lunches to win back the attention of her neglectful husband, sending them off to the office by professional delivery service. But they've been going to the wrong man; to Saajan, a much older widower (Irrfan Khan) who is on the cusp of retirement. When she finds out, she writes him a note. This begins a series of lunchbox notes be tween Saajan and Ila, and the mere comfort of communicating with a stranger anonymously soon evolves into an unexpected friendship. Gradually, their notes become little confessions about their loneliness, memories, regrets, fears and even small joys. First-time Indian writer-director Ritesh Batra has made a wonderful film, as much about a disillusioned middle class India as it is about two individuals facing the frightening realisation that they have to move on. It is also a celebration of life's small pleasures, like the simple act of cooking something delicious. Somewhere in these moments of joy, lies the film's optimistic message about life and how it should be lived. It is magical. THE LUNCHBOX THURSDAY, September 18 6.30pm: catch up with friends, glass of wine $5, snacks provided 7pm: film starts CLASSIFICATION: PG Director: Ritesh Batra Cast: Irrfan Khan, Nimrat Kaur, Nawazuddin Siggiqui Genre: Drama, romance Country: India English subtitles Synopsis: Ritesh Batra's The Lunchbox features Saajan, a government accountant who is nearing retirement. He pays for his lunch to be delivered at work from a local restaurant but his order is mixed with a meal prepared by Ila, a housewife who thought she was making lunch for her husband. When he eats every bite of the incorrectly delivered lunch, Ila asks her husband about her success but his response convinces her that her husband never got the food she prepared. Ila puts a note in the next lunch and soon she and Saajan develop a pen pal relationship
