It's hard to believe that we've reached the end of our Foreign Film Series!
We began in October with a French language film (The Class), and we'll conclude this Friday with another film from France. It's been quite a journey! For a list of the films from the series, click here. Please join us on Friday evening for another great film.
December 4 - A Christmas Tale -- France (2008) Not rated; In French with English subtitles; 152 minutes
A dysfunctional family's matriarch (played by Catherine Deneuve) brings everyone together at Christmas to inform them she needs a bone marrow transplant from a blood relative in order to survive. The family's shared history of physical and mental illness, estrangement, self harm, and loss doesn't lend itself to the idea of a cheerful holiday season. But can a Christmastime reunion, a scheme concocted by three of the youngest family members, finally bring peace to their clan?
Showtime is at 7:30 p.m.
Admission is free.
