Friday Films are certainly not foreign to us or our members, but, just in case, here's a reminder that our Foreign Film Series begins today, October 23rd at 7:30 p.m.
Our first film in the series will be:
France (2009) Rated PG-13; In French with English subtitles; 130 minutes
Francois and his fellow teachers prepare for a new year at a high school in a tough neighborhood. Armed with the best intentions, they brace themselves to not let discouragement stop them from trying to give the best education to their students. Cultures and attitudes often clash in the classroom, a microcosm of contemporary France. Francois insists on an atmosphere of respect and diligence. Neither stuffy nor severe, his extravagant frankness often takes the students by surprise. But his classroom ethics are put to the test when his students begin to challenge his methods.
