Aging Film Series

Wednesday, June 28th, 2017 @ 5:30pm-7:30pm
With Your Host, Sandi Eppy.

This monthly film & discussion series portrays older individuals aging gracefully, creatively, and with panache.

A film series that meets on the Second Floor on the fourth Wednesday of the month from: 5:30pm – 7:30pm

This month’s film: Venus. 

Academy Award nominee Peter O’Toole leads a powerful cast to deliver a charming and poignant portrayal of Maurice, an aging veteran actor who becomes absolutely taken with Jessie-the grandniece of his closest friend. When Mauriece tries to soften the petulant and provincial young girl with the benefit of his wisdom and London culture, they give-and-take surprises both Maurice and Jessie as they discover what they don’t know about themselves. Featuring brilliant performances from a superb supporting cast, Venus is a witty and wise celebration of how the greatest lessons in life can come from the most unlikely places.
