Amal Clooney is by her husband George Clooney's side in support of his latest movie.

The stylish spouses stepped out in Seattle Thursday night to attend a screening of George's latest directorial effort, The Boys in the Boat.

Both Amal, 45, and George, 62, had dressed up for the occasion. The accomplished human-rights attorney sported a red sequinned midi dress from fashion house 16Arlington which she teamed with silver, pointed-toe pumps and a gold clutch.

Meanwhile, the two-time Academy Award winner opted for an open gray coat over a navy turtleneck, with coordinating slacks, as he held his wife's hand at the event.

 George and Amal Clooney's Most Glamorous Red Carpet Moments

George and Amal married in September 2014 in Venice, Italy. They went on to welcome twins Alexander and Ella, now 6.

On Sunday, the couple were spotted across the pond in London as they attended another screening of The Boys in the Boat.

Amal wore her hair down for the event as she sported a figure-hugging velvet gown, while George looked dapper in a dark suit and white shirt.

The actor and director also took time to sign autographs for fans, as well as pose alongside the movie's stars Joel Edgerton, Callum Turner and Bruce Herbelin-Earle.

 Joel Edgerton Takes a Collegiate Rowing Team to the Olympics in George Clooney's The Boys in the Boat Trailer

The Boys in the Boat follows the real-life story of the 1936 University of Washington men's crew team, who made an improbable journey from the college's second-tier rowing team to becoming the United States' representative at that year's Summer Olympics in Berlin.

"This inspirational true story follows a group of underdogs at the height of the Great Depression as they are thrust into the spotlight and take on elite rivals from around the world," reads an official synopsis for the movie.

In an exclusive behind-the-scenes video from the movie's set shared with PEOPLE in October, George praised the real-life rowing team as a group of underdogs who surprised the world with their Olympic performance. In real life, the team won a gold medal in Berlin, narrowly beating Italy and Germany to first place at an event that Adolf Hitler attended, according to a 2012 Slate article about the team.

“These guys at the University of Washington take on the seniors, and then taking on the fraternity kids, and then taking on the Nazis," the director said, adding. "Every film we’ve ever seen that has an underdog in it, you’re always rooting for them, that you can pull yourself up from nothing and succeed."

In addition to Edgerton, 49, and Turner, 33, the cast includes Peter Guinness, Jack Mulhern, James Wolk, Hadley Robinson, Courtney Henggeler, Sam Strike, Thomas Elms, Luke Slattery, Bruce Herbelin-Earle, Wil Coban, Thomas Stephen Varey and Chris Diamantopoulos.

The Boys in the Boat is in theaters Dec. 25.

So what was the reception like?  Was it a full house? Did the people seem inspired, excited, bored? I'm trying to get a rowing pond dug in a creek bed here in very arid Colorado Springs. Water Rights issues are a nightmare!  Plus, there is the expense of digging a hole 2 kilometers by 3 meters by 60 meters - if we can even get it that wide.  Does anybody know if Mr. Clooney is prone to charitable contributions for something like that?  Maybe he could donate a boat, though at this point we probably don't have enough support to come up with a full 8-person crew, men or women.  Maybe some smaller craft like single or double scull shells?  They're not cheap, but it would sure help make the sport more affordable to the general public.

Anyone else seen the movie? I recommend it. Not a masterpiece, but a really impressive work of storytelling and production. The actors - none of whom I was really familiar with - are very good. George should be rightfully proud of this one.

I'm waiting for it to come out on video. I only brave the theaters when GC is in front of the camera.

It's not playing anywhere near me, so I'll have to wait for it to stream or come out on DVD. It has gotten good reviews, though not raves.

Has anyone heard anything about the OSU documentary? I saw somewhere that HBO is holding up the release.

Lizzy, can't remember if I've already posted this, but it would appear to be the latest on production.

The sooner the better as far as I'm concerned!

Thanks, PAN. Seems like the most recent article was in late October when a staffer said they were still in the middle of production. It seems to be taking them a long time to get this one done, and I'm hoping it's because they're making sure it's so good that it can't be ignored. Too often his films get a mild flutter of attention and then quietly fade away. This one needs to hit hard.
