    • Jane Arestia, 59 Dogwood Lane, New Canaan

    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.

    Pain and Glory - The protagonist of "Pain and Glory" was at the decline of his career. The man involuntarily looks back into the past, and a stream of vivid memories falls upon him. He recalls such moments from his youth as tender feelings for his mother, love and separation, the search for happiness and success. 

    Judy - Legendary performer Judy Garland arrives in London in the winter of 1968 to perform a series of sold-out concerts. Led by a deeply committed performance from Renée Zellweger, Judy captures the waning days of a beloved performer with clear-eyed compassion. 

    Please advise if you plan to attend by emailing Jeanette or call her  at 203-966-2063  and whether you will be bringing an appetizer or a dessert.
