Film & discussion series with Brooks Appelbaum Ph.D. & Dennis Bell. It’s like a book club for movie lovers!
Our fall series is Strange but True: Films inspired by true stories.
Our first film and discussion showcases Jack Black in the starring role of Bernie. This 2011 black comedy co-written and directed by Richard Linklater is based on a 1998 Texas Monthly magazine article by Skip Hollandsworth,"Midnight in the Garden of East Texas" that tells the true story of an affable mortician who strikes up a friendship with a wealthy widow. When she starts to become controlling, he goes to great lengths to separate himself from her grasp. Rated PG-13.

Kenneth Branagh directs Disney's 2015, live-action take on the classic fairy tale Cinderella, which stars Lily James as the put-upon young women forced to endure a life of labor at the hands of her stepmother (Cate Blanchett) after her father dies unexpectedly. Forced to do every menial chore imaginable, Ella maintains her good spirits and eventually strikes up a friendship with a stranger in the woods who turns out to be the prince. When the royal court holds a gala ball, Cinderella wants nothing more to attend, and although her stepmother won't allow it, she gets help from a surprising source. Rated PG.
