If you enjoy going to the movies and love an opportunity to discuss the movie with other movie enthusiasts, then you should consider joining Critics’ Corner. We meet at a member’s house. After socializing over appetizers and some drinks, we then discuss and rate the two movies, which we will have already seen on our own. Each attendee pays $5 to cover the cost of the drinks and brings either an appetizer or dessert., we will be discussing the following movies. See them on your own and be ready to discuss.
The next meeting of Critics' Corner will take place on Friday, January 25th, at the home of Jill Ernst and Chuck Loesch. We will start as usual at 7:30PM with appetizers and drinks before discussing and then rating the following movie:
Roma - The most personal project to date from Academy Award (R)-winning director and writer Alfonso Cuarón (Gravity, Children of Men, Y Tu Mama Tambien), ROMA follows Cleo (Yalitza Aparicio), a young domestic worker for a family in the middle-class neighborhood of Roma in Mexico City. Delivering an artful love letter to the women who raised him, Cuarón draws on his own childhood to create a vivid and emotional portrait of domestic strife and social hierarchy amidst political turmoil of the 1970s. Cuarón's first project since the groundbreaking Gravity in 2013
The Mule-Broke, alone and facing foreclosure on his business, 90-year-old horticulturist Earl Stone takes a job as a drug courier for a Mexican cartel. His immediate success leads to easy money and a larger shipment that soon draws the attention of hard-charging DEA agent Colin Bates. When Earl's past mistakes start to weigh heavily on his conscience, he must decide whether to right those wrongs before law enforcement and cartel thugs catch up to him.
Looking forward to seeing everyone again on January 25th.
Please advise if you plan to attend by either calling Jeanette at 203-966-2063 or email, and whether you will be bringing an appetizer or a dessert.
