Cinema Club Presents: Joyeux Noel

Monday, December 17th at 6:00 p.m. in the Community Room

Joyeux Noel movie posterThe year is 1914, and World War I continues to rage across the European countryside. As the winter winds began to blow and the soldiers sit huddled in their trenches awaiting the generous Christmas care packages sent by their families, the sounds of warfare take a momentary backseat to the yearning for brotherhood among all of mankind. Here the fates of a French lieutenant, a Scottish priest, a German tenor, and a Danish soprano’s lives are about to be changed forever. On Christmas Eve of that year, the lonely souls of the front lines abandoned their arms to reach out to their enemies on the battlefield and greet them with not anger or hostility, but with the simple, kindly gesture of a much needed cigarette or a treasured piece of chocolate, and to put their differences aside long enough to wish their brothers a sincere “Merry Christmas!” Rated PG-13.

Join us to view the film and share in the discussion. Refreshments are served.
