Reel Conversation: The Queen

Saturday, September 6th at 1:00 p.m. in the Community Room

The Queen movie posterIn her Oscar-winning performance, Helen Mirren gives an intimate, moving portrait of Queen Elizabeth following the untimely death of Princess Diana. The Queen's restrained reaction causes a public relations debacle that Prime Minister Blair must defuse. The two struggle to reach a compromise between what was a private tragedy for the Royal family and the public's demand for an open display of mourning. Bring your friends and enjoy this terrific film. Brooks Appelbaum and Dennis Bell will lead a moderated discussion immediately following. Rated PG-13.

Now showing favorite the cool comfort of our air-conditioned Community Room. All are welcome, no registration required!

If John Ford is the greatest Western director, The Searchers is arguably his greatest film, at once a grand outdoor spectacle and a film about one man's troubling moral codes, a big-screen adventure of the 1950s that anticipated the complex themes and characters that would dominate the 1970s. Not rated.
