The City of Your Final Destination
(6:45 p.m. start-up for check-in)

The Cedars Movie Group meets monthly for social evenings and discussion of a selected movie that participants have viewed previously. This month the group will meet virtually to discuss The City of Your Final Destination.

Twenty-eight-year-old University of Kansas doctoral student Omar Razaghi wins a grant to write a biography of deceased Latin American writer Jules Gund. But Omar’s journey to Uruguay seeking family authorization for the work also carries him into a life-changing culture of asylum, intellect, and wealth. The Peter Cameron novel inspiring the film has been described as a wryly humorous, impeccably observed study of the capriciousness of love.

A 2009 Merchant-Ivory drama starring Anthony Hopkins, Laura Linney, Omar Metwally, Charlotte Gainsbourg, and Hiroyuki Sanada, the film is readily available for streaming (Netflix, Prime Video, YouTube, etc.). The discussion will be hosted by Sally and Richard Wilson, using the Zoom meeting platform.
