Leaders: Kathryn Madden & Annette Schiller
The Movie Group explores films with something to say about human growth, experiences, and adventures on the journey through life. We meet for a potluck dinner and then watch the movie, followed by a discussion of the movie. The film selection is not limited to only current films, but may explore “classic” films, foreign films, Oscar winning performances, etc. Topics addressed in the content of the film may include discovery and personal accomplishments or finding one’s passion, exploring a new direction and a sense of achievement, survival in spite of obstacles, vicarious participation in another.
