Movie Club

The Movie Club met on December 17th at the home of Alba Foreman to discuss the award winning 2012 film “Silver Linings Playbook”. Despite the film’s serious subject matter which fostered an insightful discussion, it culminates in a miraculous ballroom dance routine that brings Christmas joy and hope to the fictional family and the viewers. Alba’s homemade “coquito” (traditional rum-based Christmas drink in Puerto Rico) was again present and enjoyed.

The Movie Club met on March 19th, 2019 to continue this year’s focus on the films of Alfred Hitchcock. His very complex “Vertigo" provided a lively and entertaining discussion about obsession and control.

The Movie Club met on December 19th at the home of Alba Foreman to discuss the British Christmas movie How About YouThe movie discussion was very engaging especially with the delicious "Coquito" and calorie free cookies. We had a special guest at the meeting, Mark Foreman, a movie expert and a big supporter of his charming wife, Alba. Mark presented a summary of the different features that are quite common in all Christmas movies. He offered an example of a Christmas movie storyline, how each one of us can make a Christmas movie if we try . . .
