The Movie Club will meet on Wednesday, November 20 at Panera Bread in Westport to discuss Pain and Glory and Motherless Brooklyn. We will meet informally at 1:00 pm and begin discussion at 1:30. Pain and Glory, which received a 96% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, is expected to open in theaters in late October. Motherless Brooklyn, which received a 59% rating, is expected to open in early November. Pain and Glory "tells of a series of reencounters experienced by Salvador Mallo, a film director in his physical decline. Some of them in the flesh, others remembered: his childhood in the 60s, when he emigrated with his parents to a village in Valencia in search of prosperity, the first desire, his first adult love in the Madrid of the 80s, the pain of the breakup of that love while it was still alive and intense, writing as the only therapy to forget the unforgettable, the early discovery of cinema, and the void, the infinite void that creates the incapacity to keep on making films." Motherless Brooklyn, “set against the backdrop of 1950s New York, follows Lionel Essrog (Edward Norton), a lonely private detective living with Tourette Syndrome, as he ventures to solve the murder of his mentor and only friend, Frank Minna (Bruce Willis). Armed only with a few clues and the engine of his obsessive mind, Lionel unravels closely-guarded secrets that hold the fate of the whole city in the balance.” If you wish to be added to the email list for future events, please contact Margaret Mitchell at 255-9094 or
